I watched "Welcome to the War" yesterday, the return episode of V. I'm still lukewarm on the series but will continue to watch. I'm still waiting for the Vs to actually start revealing themselves as a major threat to humanity. They haven't been doing anything terribly frightening or even creepy enough yet. Oh, yeah, Anna's had her vicious moments but that's been directed at her own people. Last night's episode revealed her as a sort of hive queen to her people. She choose a fine specimen of a male from her own species to sire an army for her. I won't detail what happened to the poor SOB after she was done with him, but let's just say that it typically doesn't end well for the consorts of hive queen type creatures.

Weirdly enough, I watched an episode of Stargate today with the same theme. Hathor, hive queen of the Go'uld, made an appearance and pulled Daniel Jackson into her web. Luckily, he survived the experience, although the resulting offspring did not. Poor Daniel.

I attended the Mass of the Lord's Supper at St. John's. I have my Holy Thursday meal ready to prepare. Last year, I did a Passover theme and had roasted lamb (way more than I needed), endive (bitter herbs), matzo and red wine. I was pleased, even though I had to find creative ways to deal with the leftover lamb. It's nice to have lamb once in a while and I'm doing it again.

I have lamb chops this year, the endive, water crackers instead of matzo, and a Yellow Tail shiraz. I'm thinking of pan broiling the chops. The last time I used the oven broiler for lamb chops, they ignited thanks to the fat in the lamb.

I will finish watching my "Jesus of Nazareth" DVD. Let the Sacred Triduum begin.
