Last night I lazed around at home and watched the 2-hour premiere of Caprica, the prequel to Battlestar Galactica – I was never a Battlestar fan, so this is all new to me. I was having trouble deciding if I thought it was actually good or not, but it sure was pretty to watch. I missed part of the end, so I just might watch some of it again tonight. I dozed off during the news, and missed the weather – we are in the midst of alternating freezing rain, rain, maybe snow, and then it’s supposed to get really cold next week – so of course, boring middle-aged person that I am, the weather was one of my concerns. Notwithstanding the fact that I have about 17 other ways to get weather from the Internet & my phone, besides network TV.
At 10:30 it was time to watch the last Conan. Mark slept through Neil Young’s Long May You Run, but at least I stayed awake for that, and we both watched the Will Ferrell all-star band do Free Bird. we are still debating who all was in that band, for sure Ben Harper & Beck & Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top. And all of Max Weinberg’s band who’ve been with Conan all along. I guess Ferrell’s pregnant lady friend was really his wife, Viveca Paulin. Mark asked if the dorky guy with the hat & glasses was Elvis Costello – I didn’t think so, and evidently this is being debated on the Internet – but since Costello’s not out on tour in the US at the moment, I’m pretty sure it wasn’t him.
For dinner I made a vegetarian Primanti Bros. sandwich with Swiss cheese, mustard and horseradish sauce, on my home made sour dought bread – which turned out to be softer and better for the sandwich than I thought it would be. I’m trying to use up the coleslaw from dinner on Thursday. Enjoyed with a rolling rock, while Caprica got started.
