really loving “The Good Wife”

December 9th, 2010

Great show. Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi (who plays Kalinda), Big (Chris Noth), Josh Charles, Alan Cumming, Scott Porter (Jason Street from “Friday Night Lights”) and… some of the actors from “The Wire,” too, man, i am happy with this show. Watching from the beginning of season one, and tivo’ing season two and watching that, too.

it’s raining so hard right now in my neighborhood that everything’s flooding. i had to ford a couple of rivers to get home, and my clothes were soaked by the time we walked through the front door. I don’t mind the rain in Oregon, mostly, but when it’s dark at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and everyone’s driving twice as fast as they should, and you have the windshield wipers on swish-swish-swish superfast, well. It gets a little intense. Then when the winds start, and the trees start coming down, or when the ground is so soaked they just get uprooted… it’s creepy. A big tree by my work split in half and is gone now, nothing left but logs in the front yard.

OK, let’s lighten it up.

Here’s a poem for you. (Substitute “winter” for “spring.”)

Spring Rain
Marchette Chute

“The storm came up so very quick
It couldn’t have been quicker.
I should have brought my hat along,
I should have brought my slicker.

My hair is wet, my feet are wet,
I couldn’t be much wetter.
I fell into a river once
But this is even better.”

How about some cooky recipes? Chewy Chocolate Cookies? Peppermint Candy Canes? Sugar Cookies? Stone Jar Molasses Cookies? Rainbow Walnut Slice and Apricot Pastries? MMMMMMMMMMM. (Still not baking. This is the first holiday season ever when i haven’t baked.) I always think of my late friend, the dear, dear Terry Olson, whenever I post recipes. Fewer recipes/more politics was his motto.

did i mention that i like library work so much? it’s good. here’s a funny YouTube video, you’ll like it, i promise:

    Oh, WackyMommy, you know I’m going to have to share this one! That’s great!

    Don’t get too soggy, my friend. Stay warm and dry. :)

    That is hilarious, WM. Thank you. Have you seen the new book called “It’s a Book!”? It looks like a children’s book, and is, for those old enough to understand the point, which, these days, might be any child over five or six; but it has an adult sensibility, too. It also works off of the idea that a book, put into the hands of a computer person (donkey, actually, or more specfically, jackass) is a puzzle.

    Re: “The Good Wife”: I have been watching; is it in Season Three now? Anyway, they do a pretty good job of keeping the broader themes going while also having specific plots that wrap up each week. I don’t know if you are to the point at which the firm hires a second investigator who competes with Kalinda; he is bad news.

    As for the rain: It won’t be long and we’ll be able to endure rain as the days gradually get longer.
