I’ve been watching series 3 on Netflix and I love it just as much as the previous two series. This is such a quiet, lovely show. It’s worth a rewatch, and I don’t say that about many shows. It’s one of my all-time favorites.
My husband and I have been watching Silent Witness on Amazon Prime. It’s a long-running pathology/detective show from the BBC. There are something like 23 seasons available to stream in the US on Prime and Britbox. We’ve watched so much of it that we’re beginning to discuss it in bizarre ways that only happen when you’ve been watching a lot of the same show. Not only do we comment on all the characters’ tastes and proclivities but we pronounce who will die and who did it within moments of the show starting. Thanks to the pandemic, we also now comment on anyone who isn’t maintaining proper social distance, which is basically everyone, since these shows were filmed ages ago. Does that stop us? No. Of course not. Here’s the trailer for season 19 because it popped up first on the search.
My husband and I watched this last night and it was great. Funny, heart-breaking, and very real about the struggles of body image and fitness, and learning to love yourself, so you can love others and let them love you. Really good stuff. You have to watch to the end though, because parts are hard to watch, but it’s worth it.
No, this is not a post about my husband, although he is definitely a hot honey. Instead, I thought I’d share my new favorite thing to eat with walnuts and plain Greek yogurt.
I’m not a chili head. I don’t like food that causes me pain or to hallucinate, but I do like a little heat and Mike’s Hot Honey is delicious.
As an avid gamer and a big fan of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt as well as The Witcher books by Andrzej Sapkowski, I was both excited and apprehensive about the Netflix series. I can happily say, I enjoyed it greatly. The characters were just as they were in the books and game. The writers and actors did a wonderful job bringing them to the screen and I’m really looking forward to season two.
As a quick note: The first two Witcher video games are not nearly as good as the third one. Don’t waste your time on them.
I know it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged and I’m not really blogging now, just sharing a review I wrote of Star Trek: The Original Series: The Captain’s Oath. Check it out at Game Industry News.
Y’all this coffee from the Democratic Republic of Congo is so delicious I could weep. It’s sweet and fruity and so delicate. It makes morning better. It makes walking the damn dog at six a.m. better. It’s a revelation paired with Sweet Thai Chili almonds. Shut up! You eat weird stuff for breakfast. Go to Lexington Coffee Roasters right now and order some before they run out. You will thank me in the morning.
My latest review is for X-Files: Deep State a mobile game app. Check it out here.
Falls Church has a wonderful coffee shop called Rare Bird. They do small batch roasting mostly in light and medium roasts. I couldn’t be happier that they are within walking distance of my house. The staff is welcoming, the atmosphere is great, and the coffee is amazing. The espresso drinks are also well done and they have a decent selection of teas for a coffee shop. If you’re in the area you should definitely check it out and then walk down to Little City Creamery for some ice cream to make a perfect day.
The Kiangoi coffee shown below is a perfect example of what Rare Bird can do. The coffee is sweet and complex and delicious black.
