We finally got a break from winter and had a nice day, sunny and mid 60’s. As tradition here at Domus Bogardi in Dunbarton Oaks, Donna and I raked up the leaves from the back yard. We do the front yard several times in November and December to keep up appearances in the neighborhood, but because no one sees the backyard we hold off until almost all the leaves fall off the trees before raking them up.
What time was not spent doing yard work was spent in front of the TV mainlining the TV show called Justified. This is another FX gem of a show, like Terriers, well written, with interesting characters, adult, intelligent and just the right kind of pacing. Someone told me I should watch it, but didn’t think I would enjoy it from reading the description, so we never tried it. Big mistake. We found ourselves with a coffee table devoid of red envelopes this Wednesday, so I cued up the first episode. We watched three that night, two on Thursday and the last 8 of season one today. Season 2 starts in February.
The McDonald’s Quarter Pounder to Justified’s Fillet Mignon is Two and a Half Men, which I didn’t think I would like either, but it has become a household staple with us between 7 & 8 PM weeknights. Donna naps through it while I try not to laugh so loud that I wake her, and sometimes that’s hard to do. I just love that the theme song, which consists of just repeating the words “Men men men men, manly men men men!” over and over, took three people to write it (Grant Geissman, Lee Aronsohn, and Chuck Lorre.)
