I've been up since five a.m. when Paul got up to leave for the airport and I have not had any time for myself without kids around since 3 p.m., so this is going to be quick.

I watched New Amsterdam but was not much impressed with this week's episode -- I really get the impression that women are interchangeable for John, the faces and clothing styles change with the eras but what might have made him progressive at one point makes him tend to reduce people to stereotypes now. And that's all the entertainment I could hope to concentrate on!
