Curiouser and Curiouser

Apparently in the story, our protagonist's wife is following the first rule of detective work: follow the money.  If any monster crimes were to be perpetrated against me in my real life, I can be sure that the person who would figure out the beast's weakness would be my wife.  When she has a nugget of an interest in something, she can run that down until she knows everything about it, serious research skills from her previous life overachieving her way through school.

The Manor has succumbed to an illness we had trouble with a few years ago: we're completely back into the show How I Met Your Mother.  Since it's available to stream on Netflix we picked right back up where we left off, which was apparently half a season before all the female characters on the show got pregnant.  Now we're expert baby spotters, seeing how carrying a box covers a belly or suddenly a character is "angry" and won't hang out with the group for a few weeks (read: maternity leave).  It's still an awesome show with some pretty good writing, but what keeps us coming back for more is how goofy they can get without crossing that line into Scrubs territory (shudder).

Alright, nose to the grindstone, keep up the good work and all that.  Catch you again later this week.

Punch it, Chewie!
