I'm already feeling the mind-stagnation of favorite series barreling out all the good stuff within the first two months of the year. I purposely rationed-out the latest season of Sherlock because I knew it was a short season. And God knows when we'll get more, since the two leads are busy in Middle Earth and that whole "Success" thing. So when my personal Mind Palace gets musty and dusty... I play around with Photoshop.
If you haven't already binge-watched every single episode, House of Cards season 2 is at last on Netflix. *commence cheersounds* It's wonderfully ironic that it became available on Valentine's Day -- how droll of them. I saw plenty of Facebook and Twitter posts from people who holed-up for the weekend, had a steady stream of delivery food arriving for days, and managed to engulf themselves in the elegantly sinister world of fictional politician, Frank Underwood, and his equally compelling Lady MacBeth of a wife, Claire, both played masterfully by Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.
Hear that sound? It's the city of Seattle, breathing a sigh of relief that we FINALLY have a Zara store. It's clearly a banner year for the Emerald City -- Grammy Award-winning local musicians, winning a freakin' Super Bowl, and now this: Zara has arrived in Seattle.
