My new favorite show

I've been sitting here trying to come up with something to blog about and I haven't had much luck. All I seem to think about is what needs watering or weeding in my garden, what I'm going to make for dinner, or what time I'm going to watch another episode of Weeds.

Ah, Weeds.

I had heard about the Showtime show several times over the years but never really looked into it. Then at Christmas we were visiting some friends in Pennsylvania and the conversation turned to talking about the show. I mentioned I hadn't seen it and immediately my friend leapt out of her chair to lend me the Season 1 DVD. Here it is July and I still had not watched it.

But now, my world is changed.

The characters and plot lines of Weeds have infested my brain and filtered in to my everyday thoughts. Thomas ordered this little Roku box that hooks up to stream movies and shows directly from Netflix. It connects over wi-fi, we can search for titles, pause movies, and hold on to them for as long as we'd like. Of course we didn't hold on to Weeds for very long. We flew through the first two seasons in about three days and then we thought it was over and we'd have to wait for the next season. Not the case, we just had to wait for the next DVD to arrive in the mail. It's been five long and suffering days but it is here, the Season 3 DVD. Alleluia!
