+++++++++++++++++++++++++AND NOW FOR SOME OTHER STUFF+++++++++++++++++++++++++
++ Remember when I told you that I got The Husband hooked on The Real Housewives of New Jersey? Well I've outdone myself, now he's hooked on Downton Abby too. I feel like the luckiest girl in the whole wide world. Every spare moment is spent cuddled up on the couch watching what's going down in the Crowley house, which is just about perfect because cold, late autumn days are made for cuddling up on the couch.
++ There's something about Downton Abby that reminds me of Christmas, I'm not sure why, but it does. And more specifically, it reminds me of Christmas in Dublin. Whereas Thanksgiving finds me crying for the U.S., for me, Christmas is all about Dublin and with only 21 days to go until Santa's arrival, I'm missing Dublin something fierce. I swear, it's the most magical place to be at Christmastime (other than the North Pole of course, but who really wants to be at the North Pole at Christmastime, I bet it's freaking freezing. I spent a Christmas in Bucharest once, and the was cold enough for me thank you very much). Long story short, I'm missing Dublin, and if you ever have the opportunity to spend Christmas there, I urge to, you won't regret it, and that's a Sara Louise promise.
++ Do you watch Sons of Anarchy? If you don't, you should. You so should. Honestly, I'm borderline obsessed, and that's OK, I'll admit that. Recently I came across this article in Rolling Stone about it... see, Sons of Anarchy is practically Shakespearean, totally highbrow.
++ At this very moment I am drinking the most perfect cup of tea (Barry's of course). It's so perfect I had to stop and tell you about it. I'm a firm believer in celebrating small victories and making a perfect cuppa qualifies.
++ My favorite new way to practice my French is by watching Le Juste Prix, it's the French version of The Price is Right. I'm really, really good at it. Instead of being on during the daytime, it's on at night, right before the news, and sometimes I watch it with Papa. We shout at the TV together. It's a fun way to bond.
++ And now that I realize that this whole post is practically about television (minus a fire hazard and a cup of tea) I feel like I should take this time to mention that I am reading too... New York by Edward Rutherford if you'd like to know, but since my kindle is telling me that I'm at 59% I guess I'll be finishing it soon.
So what are you reading?
