TV: i had been waiting eagerly to watch The Catch. the premise sounded cool. but it was a pretty serious disappointment. not the worst thing ever, but flawed in so many ways. i read (or skimmed through) 5 or 6 different reviews of it, only one of them positive. The Atlantic's review echoes my thoughts most accurately. i would also like to add that the fake lashes on Mireille Enos are too much. of course fake lashes or lash extensions are a standard on tv, hers are just way too long and dense, drawing too much attention.
this monday marked my 6 year anniversary in Istanbul - and with doctor. it still amazes me that i found myself in a relationship the day i moved here. i had met him a month earlier, but i did not expect things to "escalate" quite that fast, if at all. anyway, 6 yrs is a long time... doctor is away at an emergency medicine meeting thing in Ankara on monday, so we celebrated on saturday instead. we simply went out for dinner and drinks and then relaxed at home, watching tv. cute enough for me. i guess we are not very inventive or adventurous.

last week doctor got his family permit for UK. took 5 or 6 business days as it should. finally that (first) nightmare is over at least. so our holiday in may is set and we can be stress free about it. for moving in october, we will have to apply again i guess. but i try not to get ahead of myself and start stressing just yet (easier said than done). meanwhile, we just focus on his specialist license application for UK. that's enough work as it is.
how turkish restaurants clean before closing. good job. i am not saying this is a problem though, its not, at all. just an observation :)
