The Olympics are seriously cutting into my television-watching time, and I will not stand for it. I do not care about the Olympics. At. All. There are too many events. I can’t keep track of them all, they are spread across what seems like 5 million channels, and I have no idea what’s going on. I much prefer my regular television shows, thank you very much. Unfortunately, everything is on a stupid break while the world waits for all of these young, good looking people to win medals. So, Kramer and I have improvised and started watching Sons of Anarchy. It’s been on my list for a while, and oh man, I cannot believe it took us so long to start. It’s so good – we’re only a few episodes in and I’m already in love. Ron Pearlman is honestly one of the coolest dudes in the history of man. We have started watching our favorite shows during hard times like these, and it’s always turned out well for us. Be strong, fellow TV nerds – the Olympics only have one more week (right?).
Speaking of love, I loved these noodles. They were everything I want in a summer meal: chilled, spicy, and best of all, served with shrimp. It’s just what I needed on a Sunday afternoon. I cooked everything early in the day, then chilled it to serve later that night. Kramer had to go into work on this particular Sunday, actually, so it was nice to cook, clean up, and have some time to myself before eating, instead of the usual running around trying to get everything in place before the food gets stale or cold or whatever else. Perfect, if I don’t say so myself!
