You know the great thing about power windows? You can raise and lower them with the push of a button, dispensing with that troublesome and annoying manual crank.
You know the terrible thing about power windows? You can’t raise OR lower them if the button stops working. Furthermore, the fact that you’ve dispensed with that manual crank ensures that you may be driving to and from work with your driver’s side window down for days until the Audi dealership can pencil you in for a service appointment. This is not only troublesome and annoying but very uncomfortable – especially on really chilly occasions. Like, say, this morning.
As part of my plan to eat more weird fruit this year, I picked up these two interesting looking items from my local supermarket last week:
In addition to eating more strange fruit, I’m cooking more. Or less. I was watching Food Network the other day and caught an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay in which the factions faced off in a grilled cheese battle – which prompted me to make one of these…

We broke my next story last Thursday (I’ve landed the first part of the mid-season two-parter) and planned to work through the weekend, but hit an impasse about halfway through the second act and ended up setting it aside on Saturday. Then, last night, I decided to take advantage of all those leftover Lush products from Akemi’s visit and settled into a nice, relaxing bath – and ended up working through those second act problems. I completed the outline today. Paul, meanwhile, put out the first draft of episode 6 which, in my opinion, is one of the best scripts he’s ever written. Some wonderful exchanges and great, great character moments. And some pretty crazy action.
Breaking down the next five episodes for you:
#6: ***** *** ***** – written by Paul Mullie
#7: *** ******* **** – written by Carl Binder
#8: ****** – written by Robert Cooper
#9: ??? – written by Remi Aubuchon
#10: *E******** – written by Joseph Mallozzi
I know, I know. They aren’t all one-word titles, but I think that makes guessing them all that much easier.
By the way, the dogs say hi –
