It’s really too bad this theme doesn’t display time stamps, because if it did you’d notice that this was posted much later than I normally make a habit of posting. I came home today and could barely scrape myself off the couch long enough to make dinner and, once I got dinner in the oven, I had a choice to make: write a blog post or make peanut butter cookies.
True to form, my stomach handled all the complex thinking processes and I hied myself to the kitchen to throw stuff into a bowl and hope the result was cookie dough. Sure I was so tired I could barely string a sentence together, but we had some fine cookies for dessert! The added bonus with peanut butter cookies is that they’re vaguely healthy, what with the peanut butter and all. One could almost imagine they’re what peanuts were supposed to taste like, back before they remembered they were healthy.
Today was a big day for me. Not only did I make the aforementioned cookies, my guest post for a friend’s blog went up! I wrote a post about the delegation of household tasks in marriage for my friend Rebecca, who runs the blog for a neat new company called Alice. It was a fun project, maybe there’ll even be a follow-up post about the fine art of splitting desserts when there’s an uneven number of cookies left. If you’re in the mood, and feel like jumping into the fray with your opinions, you’re cordially invited to hop over and have a read.
Before I get hoisted by my own petard, let me not forget what day it is. Today is Thursday, the day we all know to be the day I share with you my Thing That Does Not Suck for the week. The Thing for this week surprised me a bit, but that’s TTDNST’s for you, just full of surprises, those wily devils!
The Thing That Does Not Suck this week is Bones: Season 2. Sounds odd, but hear me out. I wrote a post back when Wes and I were in the middle of the first season, explaining why I wasn’t really sold on the show. The characters held little interest for me and I feel like they put the cart before the ox or whatever in many respects.
Season 2 is an entirely different beast. The characters all seem human for a change and the repartee is fun. There are romantic entanglements, interesting cases, and enough variety to keep the format from getting stale. In short, it’s an entirely different beast than season 1. I highly recommend it. It takes a lot to change my mind (Wes can confirm this) so for a show to go from something I have to force myself to sit through to something I’m excited to watch, it must really be extraordinary. Well done, masterminds of Bones, well done indeed.
