Life has hit either a rut or rhythm, depending on how you want to look at it. Nothing exciting has happened, but we are getting by each day with a smile.
The TV season has officially begun, and thus most of my nights are consumed with laughter, drama, and intriguing story lines...all courtesy of fake characters. But I love it. Without Tv, my nights would be pretty darn lonely.
After the 1st week, I have already eliminated a couple shows from the rotation (Nikita, and the defenders). And have voted Hawaii 5-0 my favorite new show...with a major crush on Scott Caan growing...
I am already loving Glee, and have been anxiously counting down the hours until tonight's Britney Spears episode...I have a feeling it's gonna be awesome.
One of my favorite reality shows, the Amazing Race, has begun and I have chosen my team to root for (the dr's), and have begun a loathing campaign against The biological mother/daughter team that is so boring and creepy, and the tattooed couple...who are just complete idiots.
How I met your mother was freakin fantastic last night when Barney thought he was black, and was singing all soulful with wayne brady and ben vereen...hilarious....oh and with the addition of "auto-tune"...just awesome.
The young tribe on Survivor was so stupid to vote out one of their guys so early in the game...but that guy turned out to be a real douche.
Emily recently watched "the time traveler's wife" through a free HBO weekend.....I'm sorry to all women who thought it was super romantic...but we just didn't get it, and I thought it was super creepy. If I ever found out that my little daughter was meeting some older man (who claimed to be her future husband) in the woods behind my house...I would not be too happy...just creepy.
I have always been more fascinated with baking rather than cooking. I like the exactness of it all. there is a definite recipe to everything. I like that. Recently, I have begun a quest to perfect the art of the cupcake. Each Sunday I try out a new recipe, new flavor combination, and bring it to work on Monday for people to try. So far it's been really fun, and I have had some real successes.
