Believe it or not, I read a book this week. Where did I find the time? Any spare moment, or while I was breastfeeding, I had my nose planted in The Prestige (Christopher Priest). I enjoyed the movie, so thought I’d get the book out of the library. And there was no wait on it, so I finished it in 2 days. A good read, and different enough from the movie to leave me wondering how it would end in its last pages. Would it end as I thought? I almost held my breath, half expecting the writer to go the other way. Now Geoff is going to tackle it, aiming to read it on on vacation. A good beach book I think. 🙂
Studio 60 ended this week. I was very sad, mostly because I had not heard it was officially canceled, rather that it was simply not renewed. That left me hope NBC would get their crap together and order more episodes. Such a waste, the cast is awesome (from leads to supporting), and the writing got better as it drew to a close. Sigh, such is fickle tv.
We may get into a new show, Burn Notice on USA. Starring Jeffrey Donovan, it’s set in Miami, so you have to endure bikini shots like every 10 minutes. But he won me over in the USA-canceled Touching Evil (which I’m still mourning). You probably know him from Hitch, or the truly awful Blair Witch Project sequel. The pilot was pretty good, we’ll see how long it lasts.
We went to Cherry Creek today, and I ogled an iPhone. I didn’t touch, it would just hurt more to say goodbye.
I’ll close with a quote from Burn Notice.
Michael: Covert intelligence involves a lot of waiting around. Know what it’s like being a spy? Like sitting in your dentist’s reception area twenty-four hours a day. You read magazines, you sip coffee, and every so often, someone tries to kill you.
