This Woman Needs Some Junk Food

I haven't written about one of mine and Jim's favorite summer shows - The Closer. Kyra Sedgwick is fantastic as Chief Brenda Johnson (just nominated for an Emmy) and the writing is so funny. She can flat act like she's from the South and then turn around and be the boss! Southerners know that a Southern woman in "boss" position is a delicate balance. That I am frankly surprised some Californian or Yankee can write. The cast of characters on Brenda's staff is worth watching, too - we always get a kick out of Det. Prevencia.

Watch this one if you can - Monday night on TNT at 8:00. We tape and watch later because the subject matter is sometimes too much for the kids.

I Couldn't Resist

I looked up the title of the book from the Other's Book Club - Carrie by Stephen King.
