Week in Short

The Olympics start today! I'm pretty excited. Although, the only events I follow are the equestrian ones. Now that I'm caught up with Downton Abbey and I'm still waiting for the new season of White Collar to come to Netflix, I picked up a new addiction over the last week. Roswell. I love it so much.

In other news, this is the last Week in Short for a couple weeks as I'm going to visit some family and I've decided to spend that time (mostly) disconnected. I'm working on scheduling posts so the blog won't be dark and silent while I'm gone.
