It's All Jen's Fault

Dear John,
 
Blame Jen. It's all her fault. Her influence on me is definitely enjoyable and probably a bit questionable. She did this to me.
 
This afternoon, after work and running errands, I sat down to knit and watch television. After the UK game, which was wonderful, the choices were bad enough to drive me to Netflix. I was wondering what to watch, and decided that Jen had talked so much about The Walking Dead that I would watch the first episode and see what the fuss was all about.
 
Two episodes later I came up for air. It's wonderful. I was addicted after the first fifteen minutes. It wasn't at all what I expected. The zombies - excuse me, walkers - are a plot device. The show is really about people.  The characters are wonderfully well-developed. And they have a lot to say about being human.
 
You'd love it. If you don't have Netflix there, you can get it on Hulu. It's an AMC show, so it's probably available on their website, too. Just don't watch too many episodes in a row. It is very intense. I think two episodes at a time will be about my limit.
 
I know what I will be knitting to for the rest of the winter. I have five seasons to get caught up on, so it will keep me out of trouble for a while. I will try to remember to eat and do laundry. I actually forgot dinner tonight, which won't hurt me any. But it's 8:30 and I'm starving.
 
I'll be off to bed now. I hope to get to church tomorrow. It depends on what time the projected snow storm arrives. Don't worry, I won't take chances. We'll see what track the storm takes. And, if I'm snowed in, I have something good to watch on television!
 
Love you bunches,
Joan.
 
P.S. - Yes, that is Atlanta in the background. It does hurt some to see Atlanta look like it does in the show. I'm seeing places I recognize and it's sad. But a town that rose again after Sherman went through can handle anything. Love you!
