I'm quite fond of the television show "The Good Wife". I do not confuse it with life. Tonight's rerun featured a lawyer engaged in a tantalizing flirtation with an opposing counsel based on a long-standing acquaintance. The notion of that is rather foreign to me. I finished re-reading Jane Austen's "persuasion" today. The character of Mrs. Smith, who is praised by the omniscient narrator even as her own ambiguous values are illuminated, is a puzzle. I see there is a Sally Hawkins teleplay. I like Sally Hawkins, so I much check it out.

I am thinking about floor covering, area rugs, and the dangers of home improvement mission creep.
