So - what to talk about at 4am? [listens to silent house]
I have just spent my third week without my mobile phone. It's a grand phone, with camera and video and all sorts but I worked out that, on my contract, I was paying through the nose for a mobile I was hardly ever using - other than texting friends. I'm not a big fan of phones and had been struggling with spam calls from my provider. And, oddly enough, despite one or two moments mostly while on the road, I have not missed it at all. I managed life fine without it before they were invented and I'm sure I'll live without it again. Not having one will sure save me money!
So I'm in no rush to get another account.
Has anyone seen Men in Trees? Is that a cool TV series or what? A 'relationship coach' ends up in, and adapts to life in, Elmo Alaska where the ratio of men to women is ten to one and she realizes she can truly learn about the subject she thought she knew so well -- how to find, and keep, a good man. The real attraction of this series for me is Abe Benrubi. I adore this man! He's big, cute and talented. I can see people going for Anne Heche or James Tupper, but for me it's Abraham all the way! So many series are started and then cancelled, let's hope this is one that runs and runs!
Update: I picked up a book while dawn shopping at the store. The new PJ Tracy book, Snow Blind. I love PJ Tracy, they are fabulous writers! I managed to not read the book for about an hour, then I gave in, turned the TV off and I munched through it in four hours! Excellent book, ladies! (ladies - PJ and Traci, mother and daughter author team), number four and another fantastic investigation!
It's Saturday evening, MB is getting ready to go out with his friend and I am enjoying 'Cocoon'. I have adored Brian Dennehy all my life - anyone got his number?? I think it's something to do with the big manly chest, the gentle voice, the sweet, sweet smile and those sparkling blue eyes....hubba hubba....!
