I am going to be husbandless for most of the next week. What wild and crazy things to do I have planned?

Uh, sewing, reading books. Same old stuff. I might spice it up with mad dashes to the mailbox to return Netflix movies so I can get new ones. I’m a wild child.

Speaking of Netflix, I’ve been on a TV series watching kick lately. I watched the first season of Rome, which I loved. I’m a history geek so I loved being able to finally get the cast of characters around the life and death of Julius Caesar straight in my mind. The husband didn’t get into it except to look up from what he was doing whenever a sex scene came on. There are lots of those and lots of violence because it is an HBO series. I can’t wait for season 2 to be released.

I also watched season 1 of Fat Friends. This is a British show about people in a weight loss group sort of like Weight Watchers. I like this show because the fat people are people and not just stereotypes. The one woman ends up with a male escort as a boyfriend after she impresses him so much on the night she hired him. It took me a few episodes to get into it but it was good.

I’m watching season 1 of Carnivale now. I have no idea what is going on but I think that’s the point.
