car, election, tv series

August 2nd, 2010 at 07:29 pm

This morning I dropped my car off at the mechanic for the usual service. Fingers crossed there is nothing wrong with it, although I did tell him it sounded 'odd'. But, I dropped it off at 8.30 this morning and it is now 12.30, so I think if there was anything big, he would have called me by now.

On Sunday I was naughty and bought a book. Cupcakes, Cheesecakes and Cookies. It has beautiful pictures and great recipes. I am going to try my hand at some pink macaroons later this week. (If it is successful, I might post a picture).

Last night a made a delicious Indian curry - Dum Aloo (potatoes and spinach). I also added orange sweet potato to mix it up a bit, and add an extra vegetable variety. (For some reason, I can't stand cooking a dish that has only one or two vegetables in it, it just doesn't seem healthy. Maybe once in a while at a restaurant, but at home - the more vegetables the better!)

Still have not made that appointment for the dentist. I am thinking when I pick up my car, I will swing by and get a time to go in. It HAS to be done, and the expense is only $100-$200. Versus the pain I'm in, and also versus how much it COULD cost if I let it go any longer. *sigh*

The election campaigns are heating up. Have to say, it's all been rather boring. The media have nothing to target because both of the main parties have been careful to not step on toes, so instead they have been making fun of Tony Abbot and Julia Gillards ears. Ears, for gods sake.

DF and I do not watch much tv, anyway. But it seems every time we turn it on, there's some election thing. Can't wait for it to be over.

At the moment, the only shows that we watch are Good News Week, Lie To Me & an australian police drama called Rush, that I got sucked into in it's first season last year. It's nice not having to be tied to the tube, I can tell you. Though we do watch a lot of series on dvds.

TBH though, at the moment we're running low again, it seems. Finished Deadwood a while ago, and got started on series 2 of True Blood. Finished that, and are now on Series 3 of Supernatural. I am hoping my friend gives me back series 1 of In Treatment, so I can sell it on eBay and buy some others.

What are you liking/watching at the moment?
