These days, I'm really just aiming for one post a month. That way I will (hopefully) never fail!
I haz discovered a new favorite fruit. They are called Asian pears, apple pears (or maybe it's pear apples...) Japanese pears, Chinese pears and a plethora of things in between, but I call them Prapples. They are a combo of the best part of the two fruits. They are crispy like apples, but have the taste of pear.
Some of the "new" stuff in my shoppe. It's nice having new stuff. For a long time it was sort of just languishing with old stuff, but I have been a bit craftier and doubled my inventory. HooRAH! :-)
Since I apparently cannot live my life without delving into new (for me) TV shows, I would like to introduce you, yet again, to a new TV show!
This one is really good. It's about a police team, Team One of the SRU (Strategic Response Unit) who tends to answer the "hot calls" of a crime gone wrong or going wrong.
First, there's Sergeant Greg Parker. He's the "Boss" and the team's lead negotiator. During a situation he's the one to make contact and try to "talk" the subject down so they can resolve the situation peacefully and non-lethally.
Then there's Ed Lane. He's the team leader, tactical operator and a crack sniper. He is often the person in charge of taking down the subject if the situation escalates and there is no other option other than lethal.
Michelangelo "Spike" Scarlatti is demolitions and tactical. He is often to be found in the van doing fabulous things with a computer, figuring out info on both subjects and victims for the Team to use to de-escalate a subject.
Kevin "Wordy" Wordsworth specializes in entry and hand-to-hand. He is the "family man" on the show and an overall sweetheart.
Sam Braddock is ex-military. He tends to take over as team leader and tactical whenever Ed can't, and is usually lead sniper.
Julianna "Jules" Callaghan is the team's only female member, and she is awesome sauce. She tends to be the one to do negotiating if Greg can't, and she is also often called upon to be the sniper.
Lewis "Lou" Young is the less lethal weapons specialist on Team One, often backing up Spike when it comes to bombs and research.
This show is crazy, because not only is it a GREAT show, but all the team members are like a family. They have each others' backs all the time, and their one goal is to "keep the peace." It also does backstory on the members, so you grow fonder and fonder of them as the seasons go. I tend to shed a lot of tears at the end of each episode. They do a great job of finishing up the story and having this song playing in the background that totally depicts the whole episode perfectly.
At the moment I've just started Season Four, and I have a TERRIBLE feeling about one of my favourite members on the team. I'm not going to say anything, in case I end up being right, and if I am I'll probably cry even harder. :-)
Okay, my life is boring. I'll leave you and love you and post again sometime in December. Probably just in time for Christmas.
Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Advent, Happy St. Nicholas Day in case I don't pop on long enough to commemorate those holidays with their own special posts.
