Yes, hmphf sums up my experience last week with my stay at home week. CSI:NY, while good to see again, was not as good as I had hoped--my IRA storyline would have been much better than a storyline about a couple of con artists that had no direct relationship with the team. Sadly, there were just a few too many rolling-of-the-eyes moments such as showing Mac swimming up through water after a car he was in was dumped in a river and then later panning out on said car showing it only partially submerged. Anyway, this week looks interesting: the band Maroon 5 and some of their fans are going to get infected with Small Pox.
Next up was The Office and frankly (don't kill me) I much prefer a 30 minute Office that leaves me wanting more to the 1 hour office that tries to stretch out a storyline to the point that I begin to get annoyed. I did love it, though, when the boss guy (I'm still new to this show) picked up the computer that Jim and Pam were using to video conference so that Pam could show him where the colored paper clips were.
Numbers wasn't on because of some debate thingy but it should premier this week--Jen I like this show because it is smartly written but not as gory as some of the other crime/investigative shows on tv and because Rob Morrow is cute.
This lack of complete satisfaction has driven me into the arms of a delightful little book so for that I can be a little grateful that stay at home week wasn't all that I hoped it would be. The book in question is another one of those Jane Austen knock offs. It is called An Assembly Such as This and is by Pamela Aiden. And while I am not entirely sure that I like it because it is good or because I have read far too many not so good knock offs, I am thoroughly enjoying it--or was until I discovered that it is book 1 in a trilogy. I fear I may never get my to-read list under control at this rate. Anyway, An Assembly is Mr. Darcy's point of view of Pride and Prejudice and so far I highly recommend it if you are looking for a bit of light fun.
