Thursday Thoughts

My thoughts aren't on anything but what happened in DC yesterday. We were glued to the TV and news. Yelling at the TV. Unbelievable yet believable. Thirteen days... please let normal return. I do not like waking up each day wondering what fresh pile of poop there is.

What We're Eating:
  • Breaded Pork Chops with roasted cauliflower
  • Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Dessert: holiday cookies and candy
What We're Watching:
  • The season 2 finale of His Dark Materials. It ended as more of a cliffhanger than I expected.
  • The Rookie is back and I'm glad they quickly resolved last season's cliffhanger but it's just sort of meh.
  • Another season of Worst Cooks. The first episode is always funny because they make their signature dish. This time, a lady made carbonara with mayo. Another pushed spaghetti through hot dog slices and then boiled them. 
  • The New Mutants (movie). Not as bad as we expected. Not as good as we would have liked.
  • Marcella (Netflix). We finished season 1 and started season 2. I was ready to quit halfway through season 1, but then I got interested again. Marcella has great instincts as a detective but personally, she's a mess and not very likeable. You want to blame her for her marriage failing but her husband is even more unlikeable. Such a jerk.
What I'm Reading:
  • The Crow Trap: The First Vera Stanhope Mystery by Ann Cleeves. It was good but took a while to really grab my attention. I'm not sure Vera is a very likeable character.
