How to Save a Life

Not much new in the land o' Meghan. 4 days of work this week because I have to stay home on Friday and take care of poor sick Andrew who is getting two more teeth pulled on Friday (I love the fact that I don't have Wisdom teeth!!). Which means 3 more work days to go!

I got up at 5:15 again today. Yep, that's right, I am attempting to go to the gym in the mornings again. This is week 2. It isn't getting any easier, but I'm trying.

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. If you aren't watching this show, shame on you! It's pretty good. Amanda Peet annoys me, but I'm finding her a little easier to take in this show. Matthew Perry does an awesome job staying away from Chandler and I'm only seeing a little bit of Josh in Bradley Whitford. I actually thought that Danny (aka Bradley Whitford) did a total Chander in last weeks episode. "Could you BE any more Jewish?". I don't know if he did it on purpose or not, but I thought it was funny. So watch it - it's pretty good. It's on at 10pm on Monday nights, but I usually don't watch it until the end of the week because I can't stay up till 11 and get up at 5:15.

Also, this Wednesday LOST starts. I cannot keep up with the plot lines with my sporadic blogging, but please see www.breegetslost.blogspot.com if you have any questions. Also, feel free to leave a comment saying just how scared of that blog you really are :)

Or course Gilmore Girls is a Tuesday night happy hour. Again, I won't be watching it or commenting on Tuesday because of class, but I AM going to try to keep up the Gilmore Girls Quote of the Week. Just don't expect it right away. Mo is better at keeping up with the posts about it that I am. www.wereinafight.blogspot.com. That blog isn't as scary as the previously mentioned LOST blog, but you can leave a comment there as well.

And while we're at it, Grey's and Numb3rs fill up your week. But I really want to comment on Ugly Betty. I watched it last week and I thought it was really good. They totally ripped off Devil Wears Prada (really great chicklit book) but I still thought it was funny. It's totally cheesy, over the top ridiculus drama - it's almost like Zoolander sometimes, only it's trying to be serious. But I liked it. I accepted the cheesy drama filled ridiculousness of it. The girl who plays Betty is really good (Alexis, if you are reading this, you could learn something from her! he he he) and it's great to see a real live curvy women on TV. And by "curvy" I don't mean huge boobs and really great ass but teeny tiny waist. I mean someone who is a little FLUFFY AROUND THE EQUATOR with some hips and butt to go with it. Of course she has the boobs too. Isn't she lucky. Me - not so much.

Surprisingly I don't sit around and watch TV with my entire life. This weekend Andrew and I bought Monopoly, Here and Now edition. It's been really fun, I currently own Fenway Park and I'm desperately trying to get Times Square before Andrew lands on it. The next time we'll have time to play will probably be Wednesday, so I will let you know if I get it!

Andrew took the GMAT this Saturday. I am happy to report he took it out back and beat the crap out of hit. So YAY for Andrew!!!

Okay, my dishwasher is making some funky sounds, so I must go investigate. Catch y'all later.

Don't act like you're not impressed.... I'm kind of a big deal. People know me. You better be nice(r) to me, I have late breaking spoiler information.... you know you're excited. I know it too. Don't try to hide it.

I also greatly enjoyed Ugly Betty and discussed its similarities with my mom and sister as we watched. I saw on Oprah that it is based on a South American telenovela that has been around for years, and that numerous countries around the world have their own version of the show. Salma Hayek was such a fan she brought it to the US. So the question is if it ripped off Devil Wears Prada or if "Devil" ripped off Betty - some food for thought.

Hey-thanks for the mad props on my GG commentary...and for not calling me psycho:) Though I fully admit that I can be when it comes to that show! By the way...if you haven't gotten the previous seasons on DVD yet, they are on sale at target for 18.00 and at best buy for 20...I now have all BUT season 6 which angered and upset me...so I'll wait for a sale on that too:)

Ugg Betty was really good...though my dvr busted so I haven't seen this weeks!!

Did you see Lost yet?? I so missed that show!! One of my old drinking pals from SAC is an assistant writer on the show now...but I won't allow spoilers!!
