Check in Thursdays: Week 2

Watching... Chuck. We have been quite a few weeks behind on the show but we're catching up (only 2 left!) as the final season winds down.
Listening... well, need to listen to the Foster the People's Torches.  Have had it for a bit and am going to the concert in June, so really ought to listen to it sometime soon! :)
Reading... sigh, not much. When I'm not knitting while watching TV these days, I'm on the Internet looking obsessively at Pinterest... Haha. Does that count as reading? 5 word blurbs?? :) Traveling this weekend so maybe I will have some books to report back with next week. Well, we'll see if they're books worth reporting back with. ;-)

Watching... Downton Abbey, season 2, obvs. Still very much a Mary/Matthew shipper, although that Lavinia girl does seems nice. When did they decide to make Moseley a jerk though? And I cannot get behind Lady Cora because she still seems to think that O'Brien is "sweet."
Listening... The Shins - Simple Song. First new album in years!
Reading... Great House by Nicole Krauss. Shamefully this is like my third attempt to finish this book. It's not that I dislike it, it's just kind of slow going and I keep having to return it to the library. Definitely not as engaging as her last book (The History of Love) but it's still great writing.

watching: Shameless[US]. Only watched clips from season 1, but familiar enough with Shameless[UK] to start with season 2.

listening to: "Safe and Sound" by Taylor Swift [first single off Hunger Games soundtrack]

reading: Just finished The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. It started off with a pretty good story, but quickly became very Twilight-ish.
