Dad's in Denver this week, Mom's back is out, so I was unable to get to work. Therefore, I asked them to let me use Paid Time Off today. Thank God I hadn't scheduled all of it yet.
Mom and I are taking advantage of having the house to ourselves. Yesterday, we watched A&E/BBC's Pride And Prejudice *happy sigh* and three episodes of House, M.D. Season 1: the pilot, "Three Stories," and "Honeymoon." Mom likes the show, despite how unrealistic it is at times. I think I impressed her when Stacy's husband was diagnosed with porphyria at the end of "Honeymoon," and I said that England's George III had the same thing. What can I say, a word like "porphyria" sticks in your mind, though I was apparently mispronouncing it all these years.
Hey, firelion, someday you and I are going to England on a Jane Austen tour.
