Some Bullet Points or Whatever


I currently have a serious case of the Christmas humbugs which is caring over to general humbuggedness (humbuggery?) in all aspects of life. Here's the thing: I am the worst gift giver in the universe. I apparently gave my dad Ghostbusters on DVD two Christmases in a row (an act I have no memory of, but about which my family teases me every year) and I literally lost sleep over this year's gifts last night. I just put too much pressure on myself to get "the perfect thing" when really I should just say, "Screw you guys! I'll get you what I want," but apparently that's not very Christmas spirity or whatever. So, I'm a grumpasaurus and you all suffer the consequences. I'm sorry...I don't want it to be this way...I just don't see any other option! Anyway, here are some talking points for your water coolers this morning/afternoon:

  • Golden Globe nominations are out. When will House and Entourage stop being nominated? At least True Blood and Glee made the cut. Oh, and apparently we all need to see Avatar now. It better be effing good, James Cameron!
  • I went to bed at 7:30 last night and missed The Sing Off (though I did DVR it). What's wrong with me?!?
  • My Fantasy Football teams went 4 for 4 this weekend and I'm now in the black. So, that's something to be happy about. We're all rooting for a Packers/Chargers Super Bowl, right?
How about you? How are you feeling about this holiday season? Do you still love House and it's predictable plot lines? Did you stay awake for The Sing Off? And do you want to see me win this fantasy league or not? Selfish...

Wow, a best television movie nod for Lifetime? They've come a long way from "Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?"

I need to see the Hurt Locker!

I was feeling ok about the holiday until I watched the "Californication" and "Dexter" finales last night and all that heavy shit made me have weird-assed dreams all night! Merry Christmas!

On a TV upnote, I finally also watched the "Glee" finale and that was magnificent even with the abruptly odd ending.

As for presents, screw that, I'm way behind as always. It's like my trademark.

Yes. Yes, I am actually.

I knew I could count on you, McGone.

The font on that picture is really strange, like there's some sort of submliminal message in there that I'm not smart enough to see.

I had high expectations for "The Sing Off" and I have to admit, I wasn't impressed. Although on a fun side note, I fast-forwarded though every part of the show except the singing and the background stories, and finished watching it in 20 minutes. Score for DRV!!
