Damn, we’re done with Call the Midwife until it comes back in 8 months.

Rewatching the Expanse.  They took extraordinary care with the casting; now that I’ve read the first 4 books in the series I can confirm that Chrisjen is like the hole in one of casting, and the crew of the Rocinante is of a piece with that.  Did I mention I love Wes Chatham as Amos? GUESS WHAT HE GETS EVEN BETTER IN THE NOVELS. He has a couple of lines (usually with Holden) that are excruciatingly funny.  Think Jayne with even better tactical sense and a truly wicked sense of humour. The Texan-talking subcontinent dude (Alex the pilot) is straight from the book as well, and he’s a great character.

Jeff took me to breakfast. I ate from the over 55 menu. Do you hear that mOm… the over 55 menu. (dun dun.)

I bought myself a Mother’s Day treat but the more I thought about it the less I felt like hiding in my room and eating it so I’ll be sharing it with Jeff tomorrow. Why yes it has chocolate in it, whyjja ask?

Miss Margot is still coming into my room every day for scritches even though I still do all the life maintenance on her. Either she’s jealous of Buster or she’s finally figured out I scritch okay.
