Perfect  
[livejournal.com profile] keerawa, who I didn't know was also a Slings & Arrows fan, has written a perfect Anna ficlet. I really like it! She has Anna's 'voice' down pat.

And if you've never watched S&A, what are you waiting for? It's probably one of the best things to show up on TV in the last decade. Really! It's so good, I actually forgave Paul Gross for what he did to third season Due South. And I never thought that would happen [g]

Company!  
[livejournal.com profile] tequilajen is going to be here in a few hours for the weekend, so I won't be around much. I need to put away the towels we washed last night and clean the bathroom, then get a start on dinner. I'm trying a new recipe, it's carnitas cooked down with orange juice and brandy, then recooked with some of the fat. You then serve it with some different salsas, warm tortillas, etc. And fudge cake for dessert. It's easy, and my great-grandmother's recipe. I don't think I've ever made it for Jen before.

I think, other than eating, we'll do a Slings and Arrows marathon. Though we may also watch last night's SGA if Jen hasn't seen it yet. We didn't get to it last night. and she wants to mess with my Kitchenaide stand mixer before she buys one for herself, so I'm thinking of trying to make that artisan bread I got the baking dish for. The chocolate cherry pecan one. So we'll be kept busy! Tomorrow, we're going to The Barnyard and going back to the wine and olive oil place we went to just before Philly.

Oh, and totally unrelated to company -- I just finished reading the last two Julia Spencer Fleming novels, To Darkness and to Death, and All Mortal Flesh. WOW! I'm not a huge fan of mysteries, but there are a few series I read in the genre, and I think this series has to be my favourite. The characters are so well drawn, and the angst! Oh, the angst is beautiful [g] These books make me cry. I love Clare and Russ. They seem so real to me when I read. So, yes, I'm reccing this series! Highly!

And even more unrelated, we watched SPN last night, and really enjoyed it. Wee spoiler cut... )

Gotta go now! Stuff to do. Tea to drink, toilets to clean. I wish I had rats to scrub my toilet... [sigh]

Fic Rec: Under A Blackened Sky  
I'm on a Slings & Arrows com, but had never read any of the fic. But this one tweaked my interest. A chance meeting in a bar between Geoffrey and Benton. I really enjoyed it. Though since I'm reccing it, you probably gathered that :)

Slings & Arrows S3  
And that's it, the end of the series, and I'm using a whole bunch of tissues. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a show so much. Here's hoping the spinoff Paul Gross talked about at Sundance comes to be. [crosses fingers and toes]

Seriously, I can't recommend this series highly enough. It's perfect. And, all three seasons are now out on DVD!

Today is when [livejournal.com profile] ninjababe's schedule changes. So instead of being off like she usually is, she's working till midnight. Then she's off tomorrow, and works the same through Friday. We still don't know what her schedule is next week. It better be mornings or midday! I think I've figured out how to feed both of us even though we won't see each other for a week. I made her favourite enfrijoladas last night for dinner, which leaves enough leftover for her dinner Tuesday. Oh, and that salsa I made last weekend? It only gets better after sitting and getting happy for a week! I think it's going to become my stock green salsa recipe. I need to see how it freezes.

Yesterday, we finally started on S3 of Slings & Arrows. Oh my goodness, I'm remembering all over why I adore this show. It is so freaking good!! We got through the first 3, eps, with 3 to go.

Tomorrow, since Nin's off, we're finally going to see HP:OotP.

And since I'll be alone all afternoon and evening today, I have no excuse not to write. Though I may make a banana loaf :)
