Fall TV


The only new TV show that has piqued my interest is Elementary. Mainly because I am obsessed with Jonny Lee Miller. I won’t be tempted to compare it to the recent Masterpiece version, because the characters’ backstories and the setting are completely different. I wonder how well it will work being set in New York City…

In other British news, I am going to be face to face with Will and Kate’s engagement photo in a few weeks. God save Mario Testino and the MFA!


National Punctuation Day


It’s National Punctuation Day! What is your favorite mark? Mine is the dash. It is much maligned, and I always root for the underdog. The dash…it’s not a hyphen. Two hyphens doth not a dash make.

I’m coming off a 48-hour involuntary Internet fast. My Internet broke on Friday, and a tech couldn’t come until today. I was freaked out at first. Like I was missing something. A big something. But I got used to its absence. I accomplished quite a bit around the apartment in those two days. I think there may be voluntary Internet fasts in my future. Try it…I dare you.

It’s 7:00 pm and it’s pitch black out. It’s 7:00 pm and I feel like I should be in bed.

!$(#$## There’s some punctuation for you.

“To blame the poor for subsisting on welfare has no justice unless we are also willing to judge every rich member of society by how productive he or she is. Taken individual by individual, it is likely that there’s more idleness and abuse of government favors among the economically privileged than among the ranks of the disadvantaged.” —Norman Mailer
