Randomosity on Fridays: Random Whatever Edition

Krispy is writing because I am a TASKMASTER!! and she needs to write more. And because we were distracted by various things, including boba and ice cream and cheese—not all at once, mind you, and over the course of the week—we didn't give much time or thought to today's post until, uh, kind of late the night before. So here's a random Friday Five for you!

1. Krispy has been a bookmonster of late and acquired many new books, though as of yet she hasn't had a chance to crack open most of them. These books include:

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Possess, Breverton's Phantasmagoria, Night Circus

I've perused the first chapters of all except Possess, and I like what I've seen so far.

2. I finally saw X-Men: First Class. The bromance was epic. I enjoyed it though I don't like it enough to buy it, unless it was like $5 and I was feeling extravagant. Then again, with $5 I could buy—

3. Italian truffle cheese from Trader Joe's. Pricey deliciousness at $11.99/lb, I nevertheless found a petite wedge to taste-test. Since Krispy and I were attending a small going-away par-taaaaay for our mutual medical student friend, I acquired this cheese, found it to be delicious, and intended to bring it to the get-together. Krispy picked me up and on the way there, I told her about this amazing truffle cheese and how ineffably delectable it was, all creamy smoothness and firm texture with the luxurious truffle flavor making for an experience of sheer decadence.

I forgot to bring the cheese.

The recriminations were, I assure you, both grievous and fierce. I'm still sorely wounded from them; poke me and I shall yet bleed.  Krispy will never let me live it down even though I brought her a piece of it the next day and she ate the whole thing practically in one sitting, literally just kicking back and gnawing on a chunk of cheese while we watched TV. Which leads me to our next random thing—

4. Television shows. I haven't watched anything much lately, except for random stuff when I'm bored. But lately Krispy has somehow managed to hook me on watching Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Supernatural, Clone Wars, and Young Justice, the latter two of which are cartoons. I'm absolutely certain this mix of criminal psychology, law, paranormal, scifi/fantasy, and superhero shows will have an effect upon my writing. Whether or not it is a disastrous effect remains to be seen.

5. Lastly, Krispy needs your input: For Halloween at work, should she be a hippie or a pirate? Or a hippie pirate, though she says this might be hard? I think she should be a pirate because pirates are pirates and hippies are hippies, but she does have a point when she says a hippie costume is easier to put together and more comfortable. But when was Halloween ever about ease and comfort?

That's all from us for this week, folks.  Got any cheese or TV recommendations?

Go check out my blog, I gushed about you guys!

I vote for pirate. If she's a hippie people will just thing it's a random new fashion trend and wonder why she didn't dress up.

Arrrrrh!

I just hopped over from Sherrie Petersen's blog. I'm already following, but I guess you fell off my radar. I'm going to fix that! :-)

I think she should be a pirate. That way she can practice saying stuff like "see here wench," and "batten down the hatches."

mmmm, truffle cheese... *drools*

I really should download Possess. DoSaB is so awesome I read it twice.

Tell Krispy I vote for hippie, but she has to go all out. Like painted face, love beads and bare feet. But how will she get her pupils wide enough without them wanting to drug test her at work? ;)

Those look like great books! :)

I vote for pirate.

Cheese? It's not particularly fancy, but my favorite is extra sharp cheddar.

I do wish I could watch a little more of my faves on tv. Like all the different forms of Law & Order. Add all the other crime dramas to that. :) Came over from Lydia's blog.

Hi..I found you via Lydia's blog. Krispy is reading a lot of books, hope she will share the book reviews with us :)

Ciara said...

I came over from Lydia's blog. It's nice to meet you. I'm following you now. :)

Janet Johnson said...

Totally laughing about the cheese!

And I found you at Lydia's. :)

Came over again because this post needed to be read twice.

Also, when it comes to truffle stuff, I prefer to do the truffle mousse pate from Whole Foods, with some triple creme brie on the side. I put in in a baguette with a few cornichons and chase it with a megadose of Lipitor.

mmm.

(just kidding about the Lipitor. For now.)

I love Young Justice. My husband and I watch that, Ben 10, Naruto, Batman: the Brave and the Bold, Thundercats. Okay. We watch a lot of cartoons. Also, Chuck.

Also, be a hippie. They are a lot of fun.
