I know not everyone will be with me on this, but here’re my thoughts on what’s on TV right now that I’ve either watched or am watching.

No longer watching or on the verge of no longer watching

  • 24 - I haven’t watched the past few seasons and though this one isn’t particularly horrible, it’s just the same old. I feel like they’re just churning on the same formula over and over and it’s just lost its excitement factor. Throw in stupid computer-related “twists,” and silly plot elements and I’m done.

  • Heroes - I am this close to ditching Heroes. It has such potential, I don’t understand how a group of writers could mess it up so much. It’s like they’ve been given Freddie Mercury in front of a colosseum of Queen fans and instead of letting him rock out, they make him play chess against Hannah Montana and let the Jonas Brothers deliver the encore. We want to see super-heroes use their powers. Who doesn’t want to see super-Peter totally kick butt and duke it out with Syler? It was great in the first season when they hinted at it over and over, but they never really came through. I want Peter versus Syler Dragon Ball Z! Instead I get a horrible horrible Hayden that can’t execute her poorly written lines at all. I really wish they had just let the chearleader die. Forget the world. I probably have one or two more shows left in me, then I’m done.

Still watching

  • House - I wouldn’t be upset about missing an episode, but it’s consistently entertaining. It’s nice to enjoy a show that you don’t really feel you have to be caught up on.

  • Lost - I’ve always been skeptical that Lost will be worth it in the end, but it still is entertaining and I have a bit of hope that they’ll pull through in the end. My fear is that they’ve thrown in so much mystery, they won’t be able to explain it all (or they just won’t at all).

Wouldn’t miss

  • Dexter - watched first season or so after Mark and Andrew started watching it and raved about it. I whole-heartedly agree. Dexter is rock solid and awesome.

  • Battlestar Galactica - BSG isn’t typically very fast paced, but I still find it highly enjoyable. The past few episodes have been hot.


  • CSI: Miami - when I lived at the apartment, Andrew was rarely there Friday nights, and everyone else was too lazy to arrange for something to happen. On these nights, I chilled alone surfing the net and watching hours and hours of CSI: Miami. A&E plays this show for probably 30% or more of a day. It’s not even really very good, but it certainly is pretty, so I feel obligated to watch it when it’s on and I have nothing to do.

“I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Watch you live and breathe your storylines

(And) I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes” - Corey Hart


My family’s always filled the garage with… things not cars, so my new house was pretty much the first time that I’ve actually used a garage for my car. I drove from my apartment to the house in pretty heavy rain today and man… having a garage is awesome.

In other news, I also got my sectional in today. Yay! Lost at my place tomorrow?

Updated checklist:

“Oh mama I’m in fear for my life
From the long arm of the law
Lawman has put an end to my running
And I’m so far from my home
Oh mama I can hear you a crying
You’re so scared and all alone
Hangman is coming down from the gallows
And I don’t have very long” -Styx


“Father wears his sunday best
Mother’s tired she needs a rest
The kids are playing up downstairs
Sister’s sighing in her sleep
Brother’s got a date to keep
He can’t hang around

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our…” -Madness


Tomorrow, I have my final walk-through of my soon-to-be-house before closing. I’ll bring my camera and film some. Will post on YouTube!

Earlier today, I went to Denny’s with Carolee, Eric, Heather, and Tiff and we had our free Grand Slam breakfast. Woo! I then worked worked worked and prevented disaster here and there. I still can’t find my gate card, so Andrew has to let me in to the apartment. I will be leaving him soon. Poor Andrew.

In other news, Sam has a girly “satchel” that he keeps the following in:

  • keys

  • phone

  • fashionable pocket mirror

  • vial of blood he jacked from work

  • “the pill”

  • a rubber bouncy ball

  • a scrunchie

  • herpes cream

In response to this discovery, he claims he was just being nice and carrying the herpes cream for Ochs and the bouncy ball “just fell in there” somehow. Uh huh…

I’m going to pick back up something I used to do and end my posts with parts of songs now. To the following, I dedicate to Mark who watched much more of this Avril concert with me than we should’ve. I confess I am drawn to horrible TV.

“I can see the way
I see the way
You look at me
And even when you look away
I know you think of me
I know you talk about me all the time
Again and again (and again, and again, and again…)
(So)So come over here
Tell me what I wanna hear
Better yet, make the girlfriend disappear
I don’t wanna hear you say her name
Ever again (And again and again and again…)

She’s like so whatever
And you can do so much better
I think we should get together now
And that’s what everyone’s talking about!” -Avril Lavigne

Man, that song is so horrible but so awesome in a terrible terrible way too… it’s hard for me to express the mixture of horror and awesome that is the line “she’s like so whatever.”


No, not that House. Three/four more days until I own a home (or rather, start paying a bank for it)!

It’s a bit crazy seeing my living expenses sky-rocket, but at least a chunk of it isn’t going completely to waste.

New house checklist (phase 1):

Anyone want to live with me for a while? =p
