Poking Fun and Parodying the Proper Folks of Downton Abbey

A few posts ago, I wrote about how much I loved Downton Abbey. In that post, I promised I would later explain how it was a lot like a novel.

Click here to go to PBS' Downton Abbey page.

Well, before I got around to doing that, a friend showed me this article from The Onion that explains some of the "finer points" I was going to make.

Another friend also sent me a parody from SNL. It's a look at what Downton Abbey would be like if it were on the Spike Network.

Hope these takes on the show bring a little laughter into your day! 

By the way, is anyone as stoked for this week's episode as I am?

The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook

 So there I was, at the main branch of the Orange County Library, in my favorite section the "Teen Center" (there's a note on the door asking people above the age of seventeen to stay out, but I feel that's ageism and I'm not a creeper...I'm sure grabbing a book is fine...right? I always feel a little guilty) when I stumbled on some cookbooks!
Because I was recuperating from a stomach bug, I couldn't peruse them much yesterday, but I'm feeling up to the challenge of perusing today. Still not up to the cooking challenge though, it's been two days of green juice, toast, and tea.
