There were rumblings this week that despite my new computer (which I loooove.... see how I'm blogging on a weekend???) I was being a bad blogger. It's true, Anhabelle has much more faitfully updated Ben's blog than I have mine. I have several excuses/reasons - 1) work sucked this week, and as such, I did not read anything interesting, nor did I have any interesting thoughts. Seriously. 2) I had a head cold. So all I did when I got home was eat and watch TV. I even skipped poker this week. 3) Updating a blog is a lot of work, and it's not fun work when you find yourself in situation 1.
And finally, I had PMS. Need I say more? During a few days a month, I will irrationally twist everything and I'm too busy being paranoid to do much else.
So, since I did nothing good this week, I'll give you a quick rundown of what TV I watched:
Scrubs is finally back on and on Tuesdays at 9pm there is a back-t0-back chunk. Despite my sore abdomen (from all the coughing) I laughed my ass off. Wednesday - Lost. Pablo thinks Lost sucks this season, but I think it's been gaining in momentum in the last 4 episodes. Unfortunately, I forgot about Project Runway, but no worries because it was repeated on Thursday! Seriously, could Santino possibly be more evil? And has anyone else noticed the resemblence to Rasputin? Also on Thursday, I watched My Name is Earl (I have a soft spot for Jason Lee and Jaime Pressly, who knew she was so funny?) and was treated to a seriously malicious and funny guest spot by Jon Favreau. For those not in the know, Jon directed Elf and Zathura, and starred in (and wrote) Swingers.
And last night I finally got around to watching my Netflix arrival - The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Not quite as touching or as seamless as Royal Tennenbaums, but fantastical, well-acted, funny, and interesting in its own right.
See? I told you my week was boring.
Before I forget, I saw Match Point last weekend - it was excellent and I'll have more thoughts to post tomorrow.
