I am currently writing THE END to my manuscript (that’s book two of seven for those that I might have continually
whined discussed this with), and as such, it’s very hard to find a great topic to blog about, although I do love Jacquie’s “Is it Just Me?” topic and almost picked that one, but then I decided to create my own cornucopia, potpourri, smorgasbord, all-you-can-eat-buffet, miscellanea, any other good nouns for odd assortments (other than my family)? So, today, I will present, the list of things that are catching my eye:
1. The premiere of Glee was last night, but since I am writing this on Tuesday night, pre-Glee, as it were, I cannot analyze or delve into a commentary of glee-gasmic proportions. However, I will probably put something in the comments, because you know, I think people should know what I thought of
tonight’s last night’s episode of Glee.
2. Tonight is also the premiere of Criminal Minds. Now, in our last episode, Tim Curry played a demented homicidal maniac who kills people when blackouts are occurring and yes, he has really rotten teeth. This little fact cracks me up. I can picture the writers:
“We need a big baddie.”
“Tim Curry! He’s great. He’s English! He’s got those big, crazy eyes.”
“I don’t know. It’s not enough.”
“He’s English! And we’ll make him homeless English! Even better.”
“Creepier. Think creepier.”
“He’s English. That’s totally creepy.”
“English aren’t creepy, they just like strange foods.”
“And that’s why their teeth are rotten.”
“We make him a cannibal?”
“No, dude. The teeth. He’ll have rotten teeth!”
3. The recession is over. I know, everybody can know heave a HUGE sigh of relief. I began whistling Tomorrow first thing yesterday, because I knew that
Tomorrow today was going to be recession-free.
4. I am not a fan of Newsweek’s new format. Apparently neither is Fareed Zakaria who has moved to Time. There’s a very cerebral, faux-intelligentsia, coffee-table-book feel to it. Time is like apple pie. It’s comfort food, sort of USA Today on performance-enhancing-drugs.
6. Speaking of performance-enhancing-drugs, did he, or didn’t he (Lance Armstrong). Except for the Sheryl Crow thing (JERK!), I like Lance Armstrong, and don’t want to think of him doing bad things, except there is the whole Sheryl Crow thing, so I feel conflicted.
7. I’m looking forward to The Town, and also Easy A. My hub says that Robin Hood (the new one) was pretty cool. My children think I only like Russell Crowe movies because of Russell Crowe’s asthetics. He actually is a really good actor, although, much like Lance Armstrong, I suspect the Jerk is strong in that one.
8. I really enjoyed this article on the history of the bleep, especially the use of the word obscenicons.
That’s it for today’s post. Please feel free to comment on anything, because I know you WANT THE ARC OF JULIA LONDON’S THE YEAR OF LIVING SCANDALOUSLY. And if you comment, you are entered to win. So, are you Gleek, are you a fan of apple pie? A fan of Tim Curry? Do you think it’s fair that people think the English have poor dental hygiene, or is this merely the colonies talking smack? Speaking of talking smack, do you think Lance A is a doper? What’s catching your eye today? Is this a good Wednesday or a bad one?
