In the midst of all the running around and little things that need to be taken care of, I'm so grateful for those few moments that sometimes occur at work when Bob and I stumble onto talking about arts and culture--because that's when I discover more and more of our similarities.
I didn't think today would afford one of those moments, and I'm not sure how it happened. But in the middle of talking about one issue or another we suddenly found ourselves praising Mumford, commenting on the quiet brilliance of Gotye (no matter how overplayed), and agreeing that (while thoroughly enjoyable) Lewis is a bit too literal for us. We prefer the layered ambiguity of TS Eliot or Bob Dylan. He's got me beat having read Lord of the Rings 8 times (I'm working on it =) and he had front row tickets to a U2 concert in Hawaii a few years back. "Adele absolutely deserved every accolade she received"--I agreed. Both holding our breath for CBS's debut of Elementary tonight. And he promised he was getting back to Sherlock this weekend--only "Hounds" and the "Fall" left. "You've seen them a few times each probably..." A few, Bob. A few.
It was 8 minutes at the most... but the conversation made my day!
