The Week in Entertainment
TV: The Mentalist which was pretty good. The Middle - I loved Brick saying his sheet-over-the-head costume was the "ghost of Ernest Hemingway" but "with a different belt it could pass for F Scott Fitzgerald". Case Histories on Masterpiece: okay, but I could have done without the intrusive flashbacks - we get it, someone drowned - and the story was too coincidence-filled. Also, I couldn't understand half of what the cop's son said. Seriously. Psych - I miss the '90s lead-ins, but I'm glad to see they're backing off on quite how insane Lassie is. A nice little ep.
Read: The Stone Raft by José Saramago, one of his delightful novels, just surreal enough in a very realistic way, with a wonderful authorial voice. Some more short stories by Rusch. [Citation Needed], a very funny annotated compilation of Wikipedia writing. Another pair of old Gideon Olivers (Make No Bones and Dead Men's Hearts) and the latest Sharon McCone (City of Whispers), both entertaining.
