California Dreamin' and all that other stuff...

It's official. The summer slump has begun. It's slightly (read: completely and utterly) depressing, and it's not like I don't have things I could watch. There's an episode of Studio 60 (with a little Jenna Fischer sprinkled in) and that new show... Traveler (is that the right name?), which I taped purely out of curiosity, on the TIVO. But I haven't gotten around to either. Anyone have an opinion? I need the motivation that comes with my regularly scheduled programming. As it is at the moment, I've got lots of "other," non-TV related (gasp) things going on.

1. I'm moving to California in three weeks. Yeah. I found this out Wednesday. Very excited, don't get me wrong, it's just all sort of happening at once. Quickly. (That's what she said.)

2. In the three weeks between now and the move, aside from life and work, I have a week long beach trip (starting Sunday), a Bachelorette Party to host and the task of finding a place to live. Easy, right? I need to be sedated or something.

3. I feel like Rory in the final episode of Gilmore Girls. I thought I had a month to ride roller coasters...

All that "life" stuff aside, I'm not shirking my duties. Netflix delivered the first two discs of House to my house (hahaha) yesterday, and I'm planning to start catching up at the beach... so if you're already a fan of House, or you really, really want to be, get ready!

And just to make this even more random... I saw Knocked Up tonight. Hilarious movie. Actually pretty smart... not uber generic or campy. It's consistently funny, which I appreciate, and of course some things were over the top (I could have done without all the body parts and neverending F-bombs), but the emotions weren't processed. It felt very... real. My only issue? I wanted (and really expected) to see a License to Wed trailer. *pouts* It was like being shot down with no Harry Potter at Pirates last week.

Enough. It's 2:15 a.m. Time to fall asleep watching Pride and Prejudice. Oops! I'm sorry. Is that picture not of Colin Firth? I really thought it was. I meant for it to be... dang it. I guess I'll just have to leave this one...

Ive enjoyed Traveler so far. It gives us enough mysteries and at the same time, resolution to keep me wanting more.

In other news, i had heard other ppl praise the Gods of "The Office" but it wasnt until i read some of ur reviews that I felt compelled to watch it. I watched the first episode 'Diversity Day" on Netflix Movie Viewer and I was dying laughing!! I havent had a sitcom addiction in years but I think Imma really start keeping up with this one.

Good to know about Traveler. And about the Office, I'm so pleased to know you're watching... any part I had was just persuasion with praise. seriously, you're only gonna fall more in love with the show.

I had pretty high expectations going into Knocked Up (being a huge Apatow fan from Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared and 40 Year Old Virgin) and far exceeded what I was expecting.

One of my favorite scenes: The Paul Rudd/Leslie Mann scene after she "catches" him.

and Kristin Wiig might be the funniest female actor since classic Carol Burnett
