Peter Sarsgaard, “The Killing”

No more “Game of Thrones” until next year.  People, do you realize what this means?  It means that self has to rehash all the old episodes, everything from Season 2 episode 1 all the way to Season 3 episode 10, minus Season 3 episode 9 because she can never ever watch that wedding/massacre without having nightmares.

The Man, however, knows just how to distract her, because yesterday he casually switched channels to AMC, which was showing something called “The Killing.”

After watching for a few minutes, self realized that the Death Row inmate being hustled to the showers, the one who adroitly slips a razor blade from a bar of soap into his mouth, was none other than Peter Sarsgaard.  Hoooly Hotness! (How does one slip a razor blade  into a bar of soap?  Self has not a clue.  Perhaps more to the point:  Who put it there?)

Then self decided that the female detective with the unsmiling demeanor and the red mane of hair (played by Mireille Enos) was an interesting character.

Self let her fingers do the walking on her computer and found that “The Killing” was almost canceled.  Ratings for the season were apparently in decline.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves 4

This mug was from a museum gift shop (probably the de Young):  Self filled it with chai tea today.

Self had a grade-school Art History teacher named Mother Remedios who taught that the ancient Egyptians always drew eyes in full-on frontal view, even when the people they drew were in profile.  Curious effect.  When some artist began to draw the eye as it would realistically appear in profile, the art of portraiture changed forever.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
