What the heck?

Did I not do posts on Thursday or Friday? I thought I did. What happened?

Tonight I have NCIS: Los Angeles, "Matryoshka":  
Part 1 of 2. In order to locate Arkady in Russia, the NCIS team goes undercover with his daughter, Anna, at a gala in Los Angeles to gain access to the Russian Consul General's computer.

The meaning of “Matryoshka” is Russian nesting dolls – the wooden dolls of decreasing size that are placed one inside another. We also apparently get to learn what Callen's first name is, finally. For seven seasons, he's only known his name to be "G".

The SuperBowl was yesterday. Not pleased with the outcome, didn't like the half time show, and the commercials pretty much sucked. But our pizza was good. :)

Just starting to read MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS by Jennifer Robson. A stand alone but loosely a part of two other books set around WWI, SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE and AFTER THE WAR IS OVER. 
Spring, 1924
Recovering from a broken wartime engagement and a serious illness that left her near death, Lady Helena Montagu-Douglas-Parr vows that for once she will live life on her own terms. Breaking free from the stifling social constraints of the aristocratic society in which she was raised, she travels to France to stay with her free spirited aunt. For one year, she will simply be Miss Parr. She will explore the picturesque streets of Paris, meet people who know nothing of her past—and pursue her dream of becoming an artist. A few years after the Great War’s end, the City of Light is a bohemian paradise teeming with actors, painters, writers, and a lively coterie of American expatriates who welcome Helena into their romantic and exciting circle. Among them is Sam Howard, an irascible and infuriatingly honest correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. Dangerously attractive and deeply scarred by the horror and carnage of the war, Sam is unlike any man she has ever encountered. He calls her Ellie, sees her as no one has before, and offers her a glimpse of a future that is both irresistible and impossible. As Paris rises phoenix-like from the ashes of the Great War, so too does Helena. Though she’s shed her old self, she’s still uncertain of what she will become and where she belongs. But is she strong enough to completely let go of the past and follow her heart, no matter where it leads her?
Published in 2016, it has 352 pages.
