Just returned from a wonderful vacation abroad. It’s a little odd to spend Christmas in the tropics, but I’ve lost the library pallor — for now.
The other good thing about being on break is that I’ve started watching House again. I thought the first and second seasons were great, but after the X-Files-themed episode in the third season (there may actually have been aliens; I don’t remember), it all seemed to go downhill. Still, my roommate and I would watch every week and get a sort of grim satisfaction out of snarking at the general ludicrousness of the show. I like to knit while watching TV — if I don’t keep my hands busy, I’ll start snacking — and the whole thing got a little too Mme. Defarge for comfort.
The new season is not so bad, but I’ll refrain from passing judgment until I get caught up. Four episodes to go, so thank goodness for online episode players. (Totally legal, I assure you. Right.) Television sets are so 20th century, don’t you think?
