Snippets:: This (above) is the grand Victorian hotel, the Empress, in Victoria, British Columbia, where Lily mis-stepped on the lobby stairs and buggered her ankle.
:: The dishwasher has gone belly-up, so there has been a lot of washing up today. So much fun.
:: David is feeling a little bit delicate after watching Hawthorn defeat Geelong in the Grand Final at the Bondi last night. So he's spent a very comfy hour or two on the couch reading guides to Santa Fe and New Mexico, where we're off to in just a couple of weeks. I'm so looking forward to it. And apparently we're visiting at the absolutely best time of the year, having missed the heat and well before the real cold hits. Perfect.
:: The new series of Grey's Anatomy started this week. This is one soapie/TV drama I love to watch. Lord knows why. The LA Times today said ratings were down compared to last year's season premiere, but they've still got me hooked.
Last year, Barnes and Noble, for some weird reason, stocked piles and piles of the real Grey's Anatomy. I was baffled, as I don't believe we have that many medical students living in this neck of the woods. I mentioned this to the woman at the check-out.
'Do you get a lot of people thinking that's the book of the TV series?' I asked, nodding towards the pile of text books.
'Isn't it?' she answered, following my gaze. Sigh..

Madrid, New Mexico. Nestled off the beaten path between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. I hope it's still a quaint artist's haven.

Grey's Anatomy is one of my favourites, too, and I'm looking forward to the new episodes. - Last year I bought The Concise GRAY's Anatomy (Wordsworth Reference, pocket book), fully aware that it would be a guide to the human body. I was curious to see what was behind the name of the series, and the book has interesting illustration.

Ulla: Yes, you're quite right, the text book is Gray's, not Grey's.
