mystery boys

i am a mystery junkie. i love mystery novels, mystery films, mystery series, mystery stories... if it's mysterious, i love it!

the most exciting part of all the new crime/mystery programs coming to life on american television? all the lovely, lanky geek-boys.

cases in point:

dr. spencer reid on criminal minds

dr. nigel townsend on crossing jordan

drs. zach addy & jack hodgins on bones

greg sanders on csi

(and that's just off the top of my head)

case closed.

p.s. dear god, if you see fit, please let every crime/mystery program on american television adopt the formula of including a geek-boy in their cast. it tickles us geek-girls pink to see our counterparts so lovingly portrayed.

a bit of advice?

one of my the best gifts i got this christmas was a subscription to interweave knits from the moma and the papa. i received my first edition in the mail yesterday. och, but there are some gorgeous patterns. i'm thinking of attempting my first sweater. so, i query:

what kind of pattern should i begin with? cardie? pullover? raglan?

any advice is much appreciated.

ah... the holidays were amazing. i took two weeks off from my life. i went home to las cruces for 2 weeks and did very very little thinking about albuquerque. it was relaxing and reviving and perfect.

i can't wait to post about my christmas haul and my new year's resolutions and my secret pal box and... and... and...

i'm so excited about 2007. i hope everyone else is, as well.
