Welcome to the latest Things I’m Obsessed With!
I’m afraid to jinx it but I seem to be out of the slump! And I have some amazing books coming up (Audition and Subtraction by Amy Fellner Dominy; Fathomless by Jackson Pearce; Breed—which Jenn recommended) so I’m very happy that it ended when it did.
Also arriving yesterday? The complete fourth season of Parks & Recreation! So if the slump doesn’t break, I plan to enjoy the further adventures of Leslie, Ben, Ann and especially my beloved Ron Swanson. There are definitely worse things than that. I am in withdrawal for Breaking Bad, but it helps to know that I can at least watch P&R while I wait for my other shows to come back. And new episodes of Weeds are on, at least for two or three more weeks…but this season isn’t very good. I’m not unhappy it’s the last season.
Speaking of “last season,” it’s also the last season for The Office and I’m trying to decide whether or not I want to watch it. I am currently rewatching episodes from season 7 (season 8 comes out on DVD later this month and season 9 is the final season) and it’s a lot funnier than I remember, but still not as funny as earlier seasons were. But it IS the last season, and I’ve watched all of the first seven seasons and probably most of season 8. (We keep breaking up but I keep crawling back to it. It is not a healthy relationship.)
So what are you obsessed with this week?
