I haven’t been updating my blog much, oh noes. The Day Jobbe keeps me occupied. Subsequently, I’ve been feeling pretty tired for a couple of weeks. I would also like to blame autumn. Days are already so short and it makes me SAD! SAD sad, you know? Already!
So I ain’t been writing. I ain’t been doing nothin much. Except I read Grapes of Wrath and found myself peppering ain’ts around the place like crazy. One of those review things coming later. Probably.
What I have been doing? Watching Private Practice. A lovely time waster.
It’s not really up there in the list of my all-time favourite shows, but it brings just the right compelling elements of a show-which-Kate-quite-likes.
First of all, is the LOCATION. California. Beautiful weather. Beachside houses. Sunshine. Ridiculously expensive homes. I dig it. It makes me happy to see those scenery setting shots. Second of all, is the FASHION. Addison wears such gawguss dresses, wonderfully accessorised with delicious jewellery. Every outfit, I LOVE it. I also totally adore Violet’s style, and also the way she has ‘home’ outfits and ‘work’ outfits. I wish I could raid that show’s wardrobe. And I like how the characters wear complementary clothing with each other. The colour palette is very smartly put together.
And I like the VALUES. Addison’s align with my own, yet I like that the show also has characters with conflicting beliefs and it presents them all sympathetically and realistically. When they butt heads with each other, the characters are true to what they believe in.
And I heard Gin Wigmore on an episode. Gin Wigmore! That’s cool.
