Bones and pre-Thanksgiving Haiku

Bones is one of the graphic yet geeky crime shows. Based on the real-life adventures of forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the scientists of The Jeffersonian (a barely Tuckerized version of The Smithsonian) help the FBI solve murders by identifying the victim and explaining how and when they died. The main character is very geeky, and several of the supporting characters as well. The shows have been better and worse over the years, but have sustained through eight seasons. "The Patriot in Purgatory" is the best one so far. Several shows did Veteran's Day episodes; even Hawaii 5-0 managed a good one. The Bones episode covered the most ground and came to a satisfying conclusion. Wade through the Hulu commercials. Probably NSFW, but well worth your time even if you're unfamiliar with the characters.

I had to wait a week before it appeared free on Hulu.

Carole and I will be in Washington DC from tomorrow (Thanksgiving) until Sunday. Her phone will take messages and I'll check here and FB so you might not notice we're gone.

I may not be able to do a daily haiku for NaHaWriMo. We shall see how inspired and/or busy I am for the weekend. In the meantime, here are my entries Nov. 13-21:

A freaking huge head
Endeared the Mekong Dolphin
For Josh to adopt

Syrup on the side
Breakfast treat hearty for all
Housekeeper burns toast
-- re Sex Charges False

Tea Party insists
MInd control conspiracy
Weak minds buy snake oil
-- re Top Georgia GOP Lawmakers Host Briefing on Secret Obama Mind-Control Plot

Offended by sex
Reckoning with system of
Chicks and balances

Money trickled up
Bankruptcy for the third time
Twinkie businessmen

Conservatives don't
Believe in America
Put troops in danger
-- re The CIA asking Congress and the White House not to tip off terrorists

Green turns to amber
Urgency amid caution
Time to turn is now

Uplifting words dance
Mop-topped Liverpudlians
All you need is love

Almost packed are we
Time moves slow the day before
Remember undies

Happy Thanksgiving all!
