New Year's Day we watched the Rose Parade on KTLA; they have the best coverage, especially when you see it on HD. I like a lot of the floats, but I was really touched when one of them built by Fiesta Floats had a blue macaw, Sebastian, riding on it. Sebastian had been carried on floats for years by his owner, who died some months back; the owner was a float designer who rode in the parade every year with the bird. Touching.

Yesterday we had to go to the home of an aquaintance to pick up some Pampered Chef gear, so once out we prowled the area there. This included stops at Cook Books, a specialty used book store, Book Alley, another used book store, Comics Factory, and Off Kilter Kilts, a store owned by some friends where we stopped in to say hello. This took us along Colorado Boulevard, the route of the Rose Parade, so we saw the stands slowly being taken down, as well as the cyclone fencing that the store owners put up to protect their windows from the press of the crowds. On our way home, we called in an order for stuffed pizza from Nancy's, and it was waiting for us when we got to the restaurant. We took it home, and I shared the crusts with our pups.

We finished a couple of Netflix discs, completing season one of Justified, which we enjoyed very much. I find myself itching to start season two, which I know we could do if we sat down in front of a computer and accessed Amazon Prime, but I just haven't enjoyed doing that so much. Pending the discs.

I hadn't heard Raoul had passed away. Unfortunate for us fans of the parade.

And I absolutely agree on the Amazon Prime thing. We've not yet configured the internet to reliably display on our TV (though our in-house server does run video files through our XBox). If we ever bother to get internet access direct to the TV our Amazon Prime video usage will likely skyrocket.

My beloved spouse really wants to connect one of the laptops to our video system somehow. I think that she overall agrees with me about watching Amazon Prime on our computers. However, we're not rushing around trying to do it.
