Did a big grocery-shopping thing this evening. All stocked up on fruit, beverages, soup, and desserts, at least for the next couple of weeks.
At home: the minature rose is still alive (*crosses fingers*), though the flowers quickly faded. The primroses are hanging in there -- not too terribly long before I can plant them. The yellow-flowered one wilted dramatically when it dried out, but came back when I gave it a good watering. Apparently it needs to be watered every day. I'm trying to remember if primroses are wetland plants. I don't think so, necessarily. I'm trying to remember to water the double-flowered begonia often, too. That's in a small plastic pot, so it also dries out quickly.
Soap operas: I was thrilled by Alles Was Zahlt today. It's good to have the boys getting some real interaction time with each other. I couldn't believe that Roman said that one of their potential renters had found Deniz' box of toys under the bed. I thought that Aldi must have been kidding with the translation. It gave the commenters much squee, anyway. Aldi claims that the dialogue on AWZ is often innuendo-ridden, although sometimes the jokes don't translate well. I can see for myself that their contention that the show is not subtle seems to be pretty accurate.
One Life to Live: Oliver Fish is still deep in denial about having very probably fathered a child. I could see it for the first couple of days after he realized it was a possibility, and him having the same issues about someone gay being a parent as a lot of the viewers likely have. At this point, though, he needs to take some responsibility, despite his own feelings. Kyle keeps telling Oliver that he's a good man, regardless of his sexual orientation, and would be a good father. Oliver is having none of it.
GZSZ: It's looking likely that Lenny will do some jail time for his role in robbing a kiosk and beating the owner. On the one hand, he's too beautiful to go to jail. On the other hand, he was a vicious member of a gang of thugs. If you're going by rules of logic, he should pay for his crimes.
Verbotene Liebe: I had watched some of the previous couple of weeks' episodes. I think I mentioned how hot Thore Scholermann is in those riding boots and breeches. Dennis G. may be a "travel-sized German sex god," but Thore is up there in the running for the larger-sized German sex god. I would never try to woo Lisabea away from her new secret gay boy friend, but there are a few episodes of Verbotene Liebe which have must-watch scenes. I believe I've also mentioned that Jo Weil, who plays Olli, is a very good-looking man, too. He has the most beautiful eyes. It's not that I love Deniz and Roman any less, it's that Christian and Olli also have a place in my affections.
