Idris Elba has just won Best Actor for a miniseries at the 2012 Golden Globes, and coincidentally, we started watching the series on Netflix just the day before. Watch it – even if cop series aren’t your thing, you will enjoy this!
It’s addictive, and even though it delves into the darkest side of human behavior (blood-sucking murderers, creepy cabbies, marital affairs – you get the idea); Luther strangely enough, is the first thing to make me miss London since leaving there. Props to the three cinematographers – Julian Court, Giulio Biccari, and Tim Fleming (credited on IMDB). It makes the city look positively wonderful.
I wanted a sunshine break for my Christmas present, but I didn’t want it to cost a lot. So we bought some cheap flights to Miami for a long weekend (missing the January snowstorm, hurrah!) and I booked us in to the very average, albeit Tablet-endorsed Townhouse Hotel. The hotel, as anticipated, was rather dull, but thankfully it was just a few doors up from The Raleigh.
So the other day I was talking to my friend Jen about her birthday, and what was on her birthday wish list. Jen ashamedly said that on top of her list was a butter dish, and how it officially made her sound like her mother (i.e. OLD).
Well… All I want for my birthday (it’s September, but I can start wishing now, right?) is a couple of filing cabinets !!!
Our paperwork is currently in manila folders in an old suitcase. And it’s visible to anyone who comes to our apartment. It’s horrible. But I looked and most filing cabinets out there look like they’re from a tired old DMV last furnished sometime in the ’80s. But look! I found these! Bisley make cute, colorful filing cabinets that I would be very happy to have visible in my living room. Now I just have to choose a color…
