Friday Snippets

Ok, look, I want to start this whole blogging again thing right, buuuuuut, it’s Friday night and it’s the end of spring break week and basically I just want a beer and to not have anyone say MOMMYYYYYY for a few minutes, so we’re going to do some quick take snippets and call it a day.

I’m still on this crazy TV binge (sorry books, it’s not your turn right now). I’ve recently finished Happy Endings, Jessica Jones, and S1 of Daredevil. I’m caught up on Arrow, The Flash, and Scandal, and I watched the pilot of The Catch (so far, it’s like a Shonda version of Thomas Crown Affair, which I can dig). I started The Americans last weekend, and have mainlined all of s1 & half of s2–I had tried it when it first came out & couldn’t make it past ep 2, but I’m totally addicted now. We’re also watching s2 of Daredevil and (heaven help my delicate constitution) have started Hannibal. Clearly I need some 30 minute comedies to balance out alllllll that drama.

Job hunting continues to suck. That is all.

One of the things I seem to be doing during my unemployment is cooking and baking things I probably never would have before (or only rarely). I think it has to do with the fact that it provides me with both a feeling of accomplishment/completion, no matter how simple the food, AND gives me comfort food. While it’s not great for my waistline, it’s been nice. This week’s standouts were mashed potatoes (I always forget how easy they actually are. I think they get caught up in my mind with HOLIDAYS = HARD/EXHAUSTING, but really…they’re super simple. And delicious), strawberry shortcake (like from the Bisquick box), and pudding pie (crust made of ground up Annie’s bunnie crackers, vanilla pudding filling). None of these are revelations, or earth shattering, but it feels nice to start a project and finish it shortly thereafter.

Can you tell I need a job?

I am actually doing some consulting work–not this week, because see above re: Spring Break, and nothing gets done with the kid home all day–which is good, both financially and mentally. Plus, it helps keep me from getting toooooo rusty. I’m hoping to pick up a little bit more after I finish up this one project I’m working on (hopefully over the weekend), but if nothing else, this one project is doing me some good.
