A few random thoughts, gentle reader:
1- Did you know there’s a reporter on one of the news channels here with the last name of Brilliant? Now I’m obsessed with that last name. I waste valuable time every day imagining how people would introduce us as “Ami and her Brilliant children” if I had that last name. So much awesomeness right there, gentle reader. So. much. awesomeness.
2- Speaking of awesomeness, I just discovered that the t.v. show Alias in now available for streaming on Netflix. All five seasons of Sydney Bristow at my fingertips whenever
I need a fix, er want to watch an episode. <Sighing with joyful anticipation.> The day I discovered Alias on Netflix was probably the 19th happiest day of my life.
3- Speaking of television, I’m not allowed to watch that new series Revolution, because it causes me great anxiety about a possible approaching apocalypse in which all modern technology is rendered useless. However, on a good note my lovely friend Casey bought me my own washboard that I can use when all appliances go dark. The apocalypse might be coming, but my family will be able to face it in clean clothes.
4- Speaking of clothes, I maintain that an eleven year old boy can destroy a pair of socks faster than a speeding bullet. It’s as if my son has a superpower that enables him to create several holes in his socks after wearing them for five minutes. He’s Footwear Destruction Boy.
5- Speaking of villains and superheroes my family is in love with the movie The Avengers. I can’t decide which hunky Avenger I want to date most. (Yes, I’m happily married, but it’s a rule you can fantasize about dating superheroes.) Is it the brilliant and far seeing Hawkeye? Hunky Thor with his awesome accent and formal way of speaking? The clean cut, traditional Captain America? All I know is that it is most definitely NOT the arrogant Tony Stark, although I do like that he’s dating a woman named Pepper Potts. That’s such a cool name.
Speaking of cool names, there’s a news reporter here in Indianapolis with the last name of Brilliant….
