TV!!

I think I'm being spammy.  I'm posting a lot, huh?  All under a cut tag it goes!

The Office

How is it that this show gets better and better every episode?  Oh, that's right.  Because it's awesome.  I talked with my sister on the phone about this show, and we both couldn't think of a SINGLE TV show where every single character was a gem.  Every one!  I've never gotten bored or eye-rolly about any character on this show.

Pam crying in the hallway broke my heart.  I love that she helped Jim because she cares about him.  I love with a fiery passion that Dwight looked like he was taking his coat off for HER and then tied it around his waist.  Ha ha.  "PMSing pretty bad, huh?"  Hogod, I love that asshole.  (And you know he's done this for Angela and she's slapped him and then they've-  Hee!)

Oh, MICHAEL.  I think almost everyone who's ever had a job has sent an email they wished they didn't.  I've done it and the FEAR, oh god the fear.  Nothing to THAT level, but sheesh.  Poor Michael outside in the snow playing his two notes, trying to hold on as long as he can to that Island Feeling before he gets fired, or whatever.  And then JAN!!  With the wanting and the face-clawing kiss, haha!  Dammit I love this show.  "You complete me."  I...  *weak smile*  "Oh god."

And TOBY!  "Skeevy pervert."  Then Toby got all serious, which is always funny because he's SO BEATEN DOWN.  "I got forwarded this by nine people, including my ex-wife."  Hahahaha.

Roy made me very happy with his joke about their failed honeymoon, and Pam!  Pam wants to be happy.  She wants to laugh and have fun, and that's why I love that character.  (But I love the UST even more.)



30 Rock

Seriously, are you not watching this?  This show is so well constructed with the ha has and the laughing and the characters...  There were a lot of great Kenneth the Page moments.  Ha, the Psycho references!! "Did you get your Hallowe'en decorations I sent you?"  "I sure did, Mama.  I love my crazy looking skeleton!  I've got the best mama in the whole world!"  "Okay, then.  Calm down honey."  "Yes, Mama."

I love how old school this sitcom is, but with great layers of pop culture references and funny characters.  Rachel Dratch as the animal wrangler continues to be a fantastic and funny cameo role.  Chris Parnell - I'm glad he's working.  He plays a great straight man that's messed up and doesn't realize it. Dr. Spiceman.  (Spuh-chee-man)  "I have to clarify that I can't personally help you conceive.  I had a scuba diving accident and-"

GOOD NIGHT FOR COMEDY, PEOPLE.  (Scrubs was excellent, too.  Dr. Cox as House!  Ahahaha.  I love it when the doctors of Sacred Heart reference medical dramas on TV.  Hee!)

Sally Von Shtupp

We picked up Sally Von Shtupp from the clinic yesterday and we were SO HAPPY to be a family again, awww.  She was all wiggle tail and surreptitious licks to the kids' faces at the vet's.  She's acting a little sheepish (you know how dogs look guilty?  Like that.) but not SICK.  Which is making it hard to keep her STILL.  She has to be still for 30 days.  And... I thought she'd act sicker.  I may have to buy a kennel, which I'm not fond of, honestly.  Not to put down those of you that have crates for your pets, I've just never had the need for one because I'm home during the day.

I will say that taking her to "the bathroom" on her leash makes that chore go by faster, so that's a bonus.  And it's probably mean to say that I'm looking forward to walking without a pooch so I can swing my arms.  :)  I'm back up to 7 miles a day, and holding one arm stiffly was a bit much for over an hour.

It's cold and gloomy and I'm passing off a child to the in-laws for a sleepover later, so my numbers will be reduced by 1 at home which means - reading in my cave, day!  Off to print a mess of fics and ENJOY myself with my poochie by my side, hurrah!  (They don't back to school until the 9th!  What the hell, school???)

Oh, right! 50 degrees isn't cold to you... *hides thermostat* :D

I was on bed rest for the last three weeks of my pregnancy with Em, too, and it SUCKS. It's very uncomfortable to lie down at the end of your term, in the first place... Here's to hoping your friend is okay!

It soooo sucks.

::laugh:: When I was two days into my hospital bed rest before Peri was born, I had read five books, written three reviews, and watched half a season of BtVS. The day nurse said, "Obviously, you have other children."

"Yeah, how'd you know?"

"You're never still."

I'm glad Sally is home. Still for 30 days *pets poor Sally* It sucks to be cooped up, but you have to do it. (that part of the comment was for Sally)

The 9th? What the what? That's a long break.

It's cold in TX so weird because we are having spring instead of winter here it's about 50 and going to 70, while hate the cold, that is just wrong and scary.

And I just remembered I still have a "baby gate" that I can use on my bedroom's doorway instead of crating her, yay!

And I KNOW! Two weeks and two days, and it's a BIT MUCH. A bit much.

A baby gate is a great solution and I think Sally will be happier with that than crating. :)

Yes a bit much kids here went back the 2nd.

So far behind on the Stoney posts!

Happy New Year! Glad the poopsie is back in the home, poor canine.

And the Oh Em Gee cat pic for the mouse post cracked me up FOR DAYS.

Man, when I was in school, it was the week of Christmas and THAT WAS IT. No fair. For you OR me. Heh.

*uses the icon just for you*

I think we had two weeks, or just over one week when I was a kid, but this school has vacation days ALL THE TIME it seems. Maybe because I'm a parent... :D

I thought of you while watching The Office and learning it wasn't Michael's mom that went to Jamaica with him. Oh snap: did not see Jan coming on that one!

And we finally gave 30 Rock another try. The look on Alec Baldwin's face when that guy said, "I can help you with your pooping situation" - OMG - that's what funny is made of.

Oh, also, I could swear it was Spaceman. I made my husband re-wind it when he pronouned it Spuh-chee-man because he didn't believe me when I told him why I was laughing before the "I can't personally help you conceive" line.

Heee! I figured it would be Jan or his mom, and while I love the direction it can go with it being Jan, HOW FUNNY WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN if it HAD been his mom??

Alec Baldwin is the silent genius of that show. I LOVE him. He's so perfect. "Oh, ar eyou going somewhere?" "Why?" "Because you're in a tuxedo." "Lemon, it's after six pm. I'm not a farmer." Hahaha.

I don't know anything about the store, ahhhhh! Tell him you need someone else. I don't know.

I would like very much for people to care for me right now, instead of having to do everything, omg, like invent WATER and AIR and be responsible for LIFE and I want to sleeeeeeeeeeep.

I hate those girls on your behalf, Beth. I hates them.

You? Fill me with joy. I defy anyone to read and not smile. DEFY THEM.

Happy New Year, darlin - much joy to you and yours.

She's sleeping, so I'll save her treat for when she wakes up. :D

Happy New Year to YOU, as well! *hugs*

Michael and Jan had me jumping up and down in my seat, and then "You complete me" darn near killed me! I loved Dwight with his jacket too. Hee!

The Office is The Awesome. Seriously. Even Dario is hooked on it, since we've been mainlining it.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
