Well, had a busy weekend with my son's Junior ROTC dinner on Friday evening, which was pretty good -- he didn't get any awards he's only just joined, but the dinner was good, and I get to see him all dressed up.
Saturday was a day trip to Ghent in Belgium, a very nice medieval city with canals, castle, and a fine arts museum, but having been to the smaller city, Brugge, before...I have to say it didn't have nearly the charm of there. (And if you want to see what Brugge is like, I highly recommend the Colin Farrell film, In Bruges
(yes, it's spelt several different ways :D)).
Yesterday was spent with more unpacking and finding homes for things while the hubby put together a grill and a desk.
So, it's Monday....still without Internet at home (Wednesday is potentially the day, but I'm not holding my breath), but I have some time to myself again. Anyway, on with the meme"Day 10. A show you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up lovingLeverage
. For one, it's not my typical kind of show. Second, I had tried to watch the British version, Hu$tle
and never really got into it, so I didn't think this would be much better. And third, I've never been much for Tim Hutton, and as previews showed mostly him, I didn't get to see what the other characters were like. And then, I happened to catch an episode! Hutton still doesn't do a whole lot for me, but I do like him in this...but it was the others, namely Eliot, Hardison, and especially Parker that got me hooked within minutes of seeing them interact. For me, those guys make the show...they are original characters and have great chemistry together and are written very well (and not to mention portrayed excellently by their respective actors). And now I am hooked.
There's also, to my shame, America's Next Top Model
got me watching...it is a very, very guilty pleasure.
