No books finished last week

Last week came and went like a blur. As far as I can recall, it's the first week this year that I wasn't able to finish a book or two. Oh, the humanity! Nevertheless, I did find two things that I can put blame on.

The first is food or, more specifically, the dimsum buffet. Yes, I didn't get any reading done because we spent several hours in the afternoon just munching and munching on these bite-sized pieces. Dimsum—the 2nd best Chinese invention! Of course, paper still comes 1st. Also, fireworks! One needs fireworks to stay happy.

So how many was I able to consume during that dimsum buffet afternoon? I purposely didn't count. (I don't have enough fingers and toes.) But I think it may have been enough to feed a family of 4, or 6.

This was actually our 3rd set of dimsum platters.

The second is that blasted TV show, "Downton Abbey." Oh goodness, what's not to love! It doesn't help that Shirley Maclaine joined the cast. And that 2nd footman! Such eye candy! I think I watched the first 5 episodes of season 3 in succession.

"Downton Abbey": For the anglophile in you

I'm not big on television, but I do make an exception for "Downton Abbey," and maybe "The Tudors."  Ack, I forget "The Good Wife." Yes, one cannot forego watching "The Good Wife."

But you ate... This is important. In fact, when in company - and this is from one of my rabbis - to not have food is heretical!

"To not have food is heretical!" I will now use this phrase from now on. Thanks, Kaz!
