2010.015 - A Week of TV, Food, and ...

I'm surprised at how hard it is to find something decent to watch on cable, so I am glad that I am not paying for it. The best thing I could find right now is The Unborn. I'll admit, it is pretty creepy, but some of the early scares were a little cheap. Still, probably not the best movie for me to watch right now. I did watch Fringe earlier; I think tonight's episode was one of the best. Martha Plimpton did a great job.

I've been watching quite a bit of TV this week while I've been taking care of my sister. I finally saw an episode of Minute to Win It which was a tad entertaining, but I don't see it going the long run. Cash Cab and Man vs. Food are always worth the occassional half hour as are The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. But I enjoyed a few matches of Premier League. Man City was a fun team to watch.

And then I brought a couple DVDs with me. I had not watched Memento in quite some time, so I popped that in for another viewing. It was awesome as always; although, I make a point not to watch it too often. I feel like I learn something new each time, but I'm still not quite convinced of the Truth of the film. Supposedly there is a "correct" understanding of the characters and events, but I am not convinced that it can be conclusively drawn from the film. Another bright spot from Netflix was Battlestar Galactica. A little slicker than Firefly, I think it is a pretty good series, but I have only seen the pilot movie so far.

Well, that about sums up my acitivites this week, other than driving my sister around and making dinner; although, I'm pretty sure my panko encrusted chicken and stone soup were awesome. The stir fry was not half bad either. But the best part will be tomorrow when I get to see my Honeybunny again. And then there's one other thing... but, I suppose I'll get around to that in a week or two.
