Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

I'm not sure what's going on lately, but for the past week or so Rome Girl seems much happier in Montpellier than she has in a while.

Yesterday we did our regular brunch at the Lucious Lipstick Lesbian's place with the Iceman and had amazing roast beef. Then we headed over to Fitzpatrick's Irish Pub and played a lot of poker with Young Scottish Boy, Mr Bitch, Fuller Brush Man and the Iceman.

Afterwards we went home and Rome Girl got some freelance work done and I finished downloading the new episodes of 24.

She then made pasta sauce and garlic bread from scratch and we watched Jack Bauer work through his personal demons.

We've now seen two episodes of 24 that won't air in America until tonight, so I won't blog about them.

I do want to write about them tomorrow, so if you could let me know if you will be watching tonight so I can set up a 24 filter without putting out any spoilers for those of you who will TIVO and not watch til later.


P.S. Episode 4 of this season is the best episode of 24 yet shown in the series.

P.P.S. Avoid The Drudge Report today if you really want to avoid spoilers.

Modern Love?

I've thought the New York Times "Modern Love" section has been a piece of shit for years.

In fact, one article last year upset me so much last year that I wrote an angry email to the Times which they gracioiusly printed and resonded to.

But this week's hits a new low when they let a woman talk about her love and respect for a convicted rapist.

The best part is at the end where she expresses surprise that he's not able to function sexually in a normal relationship.

Imagine that.
