Three Things Of Inconsequential Importance

1. I have been a poor blogger lately. I've been reading most of my usual blogs, but I haven't always been commenting. I've also been amiss in reciprocating visits made to my blog. There, I've confessed. {Head hung in shame.} I'm sorry! I do want y'all to know that I appreciate your comments so much. Thank you! They can make often make my day. I will do better. When I pop in for a visit, I promise I'll leave a note. Also, I added the Follower gadget to my sidebar. See it over there? Good. I'd love to have YOU follow along too. All you have to do is click on the pink "Follow This Blog" link and your cute picture and profile will be added. C'mon...join in the fun.

2. Seriously, I just crawled out from under a rock. Why had I NEVER heard of this series?

As a huge fan of Alias, this is right up my alley. It's all about the agents of Her Majesty's Secret Service, AKA spies {or spooks}. The show is intelligent, action-packed and addicting.

I may even be affecting a British accent as well.

I was immediately smitten with the lead spook, Matthew MacFadyen. Then I realized he was the same actor who played Mr. Darcy in the other version of P & P. Gasp!

Now that I also know him as Tom Quinn I will try to forgive. I might even give the other version another chance. Gasp!

Obviously I am fickle because I am possibly even more smitten with the new spook...

Rupert Penry-Jones, who plays Adam Carter. Dreamy, huh? And with a British accent to boot.

3. Finally, a question: At what point do Fall decorations stop being decorative and become science experiments?

Clearly REAL gourds do not thrive in a sealed glass container. However, mold does. One side of me says EWWWWWW, while the twisted side of me wants to document the progress.


  1. HA HA HA! Your gourd cracks me up!

    I also am totally digging on Rupert Penry-Jones. Capt. Wentworth... YUMMY!!!

  2. I don't know what it is, but I love british actors! I haven't checked out MI-5, but maybe I should give it a try. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I haven't heard of that show either, I'll need to check it out! I almost hate to confess that I haven't seen the real version of P&P yet, mostly because the newer one is my favorite movie and I'd hate to lose that! A show that features my Mr Darcy?!?! Sounds promising!

  4. well, hey, there rupert....
    ahem, i mean hi holly! holy specimen of a fine british actor you've supplied us with today. :) i'll have to check that out!
    and i love that gourd story- good to know other homes have unintended scientific work going on in them, too.
    welcome back to the blog! :)

  5. And the kicker is, it's STILL on top of our TV armoire. We are pure class.

  6. I love that gadget!

    We enjoyed Alias until the last season. Maybe we'll try MI5 now!

    Nice mold! :o)

  7. I need to put MI-5 in my Netflix queue, we watched Season 1 and loved it but then forgot about it...duh.

    I had that same problem with decorative gourds last year. I used to take the lid off for several hours each day to let them air out, it was kind of a pain really. I haven't done a jar o' gourds this year.


I'd love to hear what you have to say. I try to reply to comments and answer questions within each post so be sure to check back from time to time. Thanks for visiting!
