My attention span has been very busy over the past 24 hours.

Part I: Background
Written yesterday but unposted, a fact I now regret because it's important for setting up all the progress I've made today. We've reached that point in the season of Zoo where there is no longer enough footage each week to satisfy my increasing demands for Billy Burke's character, and I go looking for more of that dude's work.

Part II: Presenting Rizzoli & Isles

Part III: Forget the show. The book is better.
And that is the story of how as soon as it was humanly possible for me to escape from work today, I drove to the library, checked out book #5, flipped through it to see if it was to my tastes, promptly flipped my lid over the "is our baby OK?" OB/GYN appointment in chapter 5, turned right around to sit on a bench outside the library because the 5-minute drive home was too much time to wait, and read the entire thing on the spot.

OK, so I can't keep any more Rizzoli novels in the house unless work's done.

I'm so behind on work, it's exhausting, I have no idea how I'm going to catch up on this hideous work weekend, I got 3 hours of sleep last night...but The Apprentice has been calling to me all day and when I realized I had unwittingly left it next to me on the desk, I could resist no longer. I picked it up, and I told myself it was just gonna be until the first scene with Agent Dean, or maybe the second, but really, by chapter 2 I knew there was no breaking me out of this fugue until I finished, same as yesterday. And now here we are, nearly 3 hours lost and my fingers all itchy for book #3, leading to even more impatient distraction tomorrow.
