If I post this before midnight it will still be Friday, so I’m racing against the clock. If I don’t post before midnight, oh well I guess – Happy Saturday!
On TV – another good week of TV! Still watching my usuals. The Bachelorette was the Men Tell All this week, which I personally find boring. It’s more like, the commercials tell all, and by all, we mean not much, so there is no point in watching. Looking forward to the finale on Sunday! Like any good night time soap opera, it seems as though Elena and Christopher are finally going to get back together on Dallas , but of course life altering obstacles get in the way. I think the new question is WHERE IS J.R.? I know he is almost 100 years old, but we need more of him! Suits was AWESOME this week. Harvey / Donna / Bathroom scene. That’s all I can say!! My pick for favorite is:
- Live! with Kelly – this week I ran home from work everyday to click on my DVR and watch the morning talk show as my childhood friend, Michael Buckley, @buckhollywood, competed to become Kelly’s co-host for a day. (Admittedly, I have NEVER watched Live! with Kelly before this week!!!) I am so happy for Michael, as it was announced today, he won the contest and will be sitting next to Kelly on Tuesday for the whole hour as her co-host. Yes, my DVR is set. Congrats Michael!!

Have you tried the television show, Bun Heads? Funny name, but it’s produced by the same people who did Gilmore Girls and has the same feel. It’s been my favorite feel-good show lately.
you know, I watched the first episode, and I liked it – and then I just forgot about it! I should catch up on iy though!
