A month away and look at what has changed...

I took some time off.  Lots going on at the the old homestead and I needed a break.  I might still but I am missing my people and missing reading and catching up.  Who knew though that taking a break for a month would allow for so many things to change.  Both real life and beyond....

*  Teams on Project Runway ----- Really?  Not sure how I feel about this.
*  Brothers playing brothers in the Superbowl.  Kind of exciting.
*  Gays in the Boy Scouts....hmmm, good thing if it happens.  Jury still out on that decision. 
*  Robin and Barney engaged on HIMYM ----- Yay!  Its about time!
*  Gossip Girl was Dan?  Who really cares?
*  Kristen got sent home on Top Chef?  Seriously?  Gail Simmons I used to love and respect you.
*  Don't Trust the "B" in Apartment 23 cancelled.  Mad about this one.  Was loving JVDB (James Van der Beek).
*  Award Shows abound.  Love this time of year but have seen none of the movies.  

Lots of unknowns in my life right now and I am trying to work through everything.  I will be sporadic for awhile but know that I am thinking about you all and really miss you.  I hope that 2013 is going well for everyone.  High fives, kisses and hugs people.

Merry Christmas!

I know that in the next week I will be unable to post or do anything else.  I wanted to say to all of my blogger friends, Have a Merry Christmas.  I will be back in the New Year with more to say (How I Met Your Mother last night and even Gossip Girl ended and my brain is stuck).  I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday and please just love your loved ones (a lot).  My love and best wishes to you all...

Christmas in NY

Leaving tomorrow to take the kiddos to New York City (kind of wish I was going sans kids so that I could finally meet David Dust) for the first time.  So here we come cold weather and Rockettes.  The kids are super excited (as am I) and I will let ya'll know how it goes.  Have a wonderful weekend...

$550 Million? - Yeah that would be good...

I bought tickets.  Not a lot of tickets but I have a few numbers for tonight.  Here is hoping that someone I know wins big.  Fingers crossed.  $500 million would come in handy right now (as I am sure it would for everyone)!

Now we get down to business...

Project Runway All-Stars last night continued with the trimming of the fat (or the non-talented) and SPOILER ALERT....Andrae is gone, "Oh Dear".  So we no longer have his over-affected fake accent trying to explain how a zipper dress is based on a girl in a photo.  His goodbye speech was so condescending and out there one has to wonder if he was (a) either on something or (b) really so clueless that he believes that any of us are going to take him seriously.  Or choose him as fan favorite?!

I am glad Andre is gone.  I loved him on his season (OK love is a little strong but I at least tolerated him) but he has become this fake person vying for minutes that I really am not crazy about (its all about the TV Time).  I feel like the remainder of the designers (and when I say designers I mean designers) will not only make for good television but will show us all some amazing work.

Do you agree?

Channing Tatum was named the Sexiest Man Alive today by People magazine.  It was not a BIG surprise only because 2012 has been the year of Channing (hello Magic Mike).  Now the question is fair readers, do you agree with People mag or should it have been someone else this year?  And if it should have been someone else, who? 

I am going to have to agree....

HIMYM - Splitsville...Finally?

I have been remiss in mentioning my favorite show lately (ya'll know its How I Met Your Mother).  Frankly the episodes have been forgettable and not as laugh out loud funny as in the past (remember The Naked Man, Whoo Girls, 3 Day rule etc...).  But last night, while it was not laugh out loud funny, this episode moved us closer to the goal of the show (no not finding the mother, the reconciliation of Barney and Robin).  And Nick, played by Michael Trucco, really was cute with his hot, dumb character. 

I have read the comments, perused the blogs and know that many people are sick of the show and think it has run its course.  I, on the other hand, am still invested in these characters and want to see them happy.  Plus there are still those episodes that are so creative and funny (plus NPH people) that I cannot turn away. 

I laughed last night (no not guffawed but I did laugh) and I was moved by the final scene with Barney and Robin.  We are getting there people just don't give up just yet.
