It's been a long time since I've written one of these, but I figured I'd fill you all in on what's been big in my spare time these days. I present: MY CURRENT LOVES dun dundun so exciting
Gravity Falls: Ok so guilty secret, I'm kind of in love with this show now. I got halfway through the season and then realized it was a Disney Channel show, but you know what, I have no shame. It's actually really witty and sarcastic. The plot is also really intriguing so I'm kind of sad that it won't start back up again until the summer. Something to look forward to since Breaking Bad is over.
The Wood Brothers: I just saw them in concert a couple weeks ago, and I must say it was the best show I've seen in a long time. If you know me, then you know the significance of that, because my box of ticket stubs is overflowing and I have Phish, the Dead, Michael Buble, and Crosby Stills and Nash under my belt. These guys rocked it though. Chris Wood was amazing and thoroughly entertaining on bass, and his brother Oliver has a wonderful voice. They had a few guests up too, such as Chris Kasper who held his own with the guys pretty well. Definitely worth a listen.
The Little Drummer Girl: I've finally gotten back in the habit of reading before bed, but it's kind of killing me because I stayed up til 1am reading this last night. Le Carré is well known for his Cold War era spy novels, but oh wow he is not limited to that. This book tackles the Arab-Israel conflict in an interesting way and I cannot put it down. I highly recommend this book if you like any of his other work.
Reeses Eggs: These are my all time favourite candy. No question. It's the perfect ratio of peanut butter and chocolate end of story. If you want to be on my good side get me a bag of these. Doug once hid a bag until Christmas and gave it to me. He won Christmas that year (because life is a competition).
Running Shoes: While these aren't a new thing, with the weather warming up I've been reinspired to start running again. The Boston 5k is right around the corner and I encourage everyone in the area to go and be a part of the weekend. I'll be running the 5k on Sunday before the marathon on Monday. I'd love to meet you there.
Remember, they can take our legs, but we'll never stop running. Always Boston Strong.
