Cooking and dinosaurs (a/k/a dinner-and-breakfast blogging)

Lovely date at my place with plumtreeblossom; I cooked her dinner last night and she cooked me breakfast this morning. Dinner last night was boneless barbecued pork ribs in the crockpot, which unfortunately came out a bit dry (although very tender), baked potatoes, beets, and lima beans. Breakfast this morning was BREAKFAST: scrambled eggs and bacon and raisin toast. Don’t tell my cardiologist, but feel free to brag to whoever’s in charge of my spiritual well-being.

Last night, we watched four episodes (out of six in the original series) of the BBC miniseries Walking with Dinosaurs [EDIT: narrated by Kenneth Brannagh]. I’d heard of it when it originally came out but never seen it, and we really really enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed the first episode, which talked a lot about the dominant reptiles before dinosaurs came on the scene.

It was clearly full of lots and lots of speculation, and didn’t make clear what was speculation and what was well-established scientific consensus, but it was still fascinating and lots of fun, and I am glad to know (via Wikipedia) that there are several successor series to watch and a full-length 3D movie coming out in 2012. Can’t wait to see that.

I am fabulously in love with my beloved plumtreeblossom. I am making slow but discernable progress on cleaning and reorganizing the house. Work is very busy but very good. Spring isn’t very far away. Life is good.
