Thursday Thoughts

Recently we made some exciting purchases! Something to look forward to: packages in the mail! Yes, life is pretty boring these days, no dinner dates, no movies, no museums, no travel, no gatherings with friends/family. What did we buy? A ravioli mold for the next time we make ravioli. I've been doing OK doing it by hand/freeform, but the ravioli are inconsistent sizes! We also bought a bread lame to see if SP's bread slashes are better with the real gadget instead of the knife he's been using. And we have some tea coming.

What We're Eating:

What We're Watching:.

  • The Alienist (TNT) is already half over since TNT has been airing 2 new episodes every Sunday night. I like this season better than last season.
  • The Invisible Man (movie). I liked this more than I expected although I am not good at watching suspenseful movies!
  • Bombshell (movie). As expected, we yelled at the FOX News jerks and Roger Ailes. I don't understand why any woman would want to work there.
  • Radioactive (movie, Amazon Prime). Rosamund Pike portrays Marie Curie. It was good, not great, but as always we enjoy this kind of film. SP is still sad that he wasn't able to see Marie Curie's tomb in The Panthéon (it was closed off that day).
  • Marvels Agents of SHIELD has just 2 episodes left. I've been enjoying this final season even though the time jumping/timeline stuff bugs me (as it always does).
  • Black Mirror (Netflix). SP has been suggesting this for a long time and I finally relented. We watched Season 1, Episode 1. Um. Huh. It was about the British Prime Minister being blackmailed into having sex with a pig. It was disturbing. I am not sure I will watch more episodes.

What I'm Reading:

  • Fair Warning by Michael Connelly. This is not a Harry Bosch novel but a Jack McEvoy novel. He's the investigative journalist from The Poet. I couldn't put the book down and I am very glad I never acted on any remote interest to submit the DNA for an ancestry profile.
  • Sprinkle with Murder by Jenn McKinlay. A light and fluffy (sugary?!) mystery novel. This is the first book in the Cupcake Bakery Mystery Series. Until now I've stuck with just the Tea Shop Mysteries from Laura Childs, but I think I might try some others. They're not as deep/convoluted/well written as some of the other thriller/mystery books I read, but they keep me entertained for a few hours/let me escape the pandemic and political crap. There seem to be a lot of this kind of series.
