I have instructed the servants to prepare for my arrival at my home in the suburb of Mope Town. I'll probably stay in Mope Town until Elvis Aaron Schwarz returns in one month. Will I recognize him after all that time? He could change his appearance completely.
Also taking place this week, Middle Child and I are having our first-ever argument. Middle Child thinks that some guy name Tanning Chatum, or whatever, is better looking than Elvis Aaron Schwarz.
Here is Chatting Tanus:
|Yeah, I think my name might be Channing Tatum.|
Miss Junebug hasn't seen my movies.
I look kind of like a dumb thug
My face is too full and my jaw is gigantic.
I don't know why Middle Child thinks I'm so good looking.
|Hi! Remember me?|
I'm Elvis Aaron Schwarz.
Need I say more?
Although I'm going to stay in Mope Town for a while, PBS is making me exceedingly happy (during the few hours of the day that I'm not drowning my sorrows in vodka).
We have the second season of Call The Midwife:
Chummy has gone off to be a missionary, but I hope she'll return. I have all sorts of back story about the series now that I've read Jennifer Worth's books.
On Masterpiece Theater, we have Mr. Selfridge, about American Harry Gordon Selfridge, who opened Selfridge's Department Store in London and changed shopping forever.
Jeremy Piven plays Mr. Selfridge. I like Jeremy Piven, and the show is interesting and energetic.
And now PBS has yet another British offering that I like. It's called The Bletchley Circle. It's about four women who were cryptographers during World War II. Following the war, they team up to use their skills for crime solving.
Hurry, because The Bletchley Circle is only a three-part miniseries. The first episode is available on pbs.org, or you might find it on Sunday night after Mr. Selfridge.
You can probably still catch a great documentary, made by Ken Burns and his daughter, called The Central Park 5. Remember the Central Park jogger, who was brutally attacked and raped? Five young men were coerced into confessing to the crime, and they went to prison. Years later, someone else confessed to the crime. The documentary might be in rotation on your PBS station (my PBS station repeats shows multiple times), and I know it's available for at least a bit longer at pbs.org.
See ya on the flip side.
Infinities of love,
