Whose Idea Was New Years Resolutions, Anyways?!

Hi friends.

I am still feeling badly about the lack of blogging that was me over the holiday week(s). OK, I may or may not have extended my laziness for the full duration of the two weeks that encompassed Christmas and New Years. So?!

In an effort to redeem myself, and because New Years Resolutions have been a hot topic as of late, as they always are after the "I-think-I-gained-15-pounds-and-lost-my-better-attributes-in-the-last-year" end of the year craze, I have decided that being better to my blog should be up there on my "resolutions" list.

In that effort, I have been left wondering how this whole "resolution" business started anyways?! I mean, don't get me wrong, I think it's great that everyone wants to start out the year healthier, five pounds lighter, and with new goals, but does it really happen?


I don't mean to sound like a cynic, because I do love the idea of eating more salads, cutting down on trashy TV for more reading time (like that'll happen), getting to church more and of course, being better to the (very) few followers of this here blog.

Speaking of TV - I have realized lately, thanks to the many a sarcastic comment that B makes about what I watch, and how often, that I watch a heck of a lot of TV! I am almost certain that I watch a significant amount more TV than the average person. This could be because I will watch anything from American Idol to 90210, stopping at Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives in between. So, shoot me.

This week has required all of Pam's efforts to keep up with the nightly schedules, and to try and pare down what's on my "must-watch" list. Right. But, sometimes, the networks (or the viewers) make that decision for me. I have learned recently that three (3?!) of my favorite shows will be canceled as of the end of this season, and it's been a tough week, trust me. No longer will I be able to gawk over the beautifully expensive clothes and bags of Lipstick Jungle (that is, unless these next two weeks kill in the ratings), no longer will Nick George strut his stuff for the 46 commercial free minutes that are Dirty Sexy Money, and what will happen to my childhood choir buddy, Bethany Joy? Once One Tree Hill is over, what will happen to that cutie little Jamie? Surely, someone will pick up this adorable child actor, no?

Well, woe is me. I will figure out some way to get through this rough patch. No doubt by picking three new shows that will air next season, and, hopefully, be just as entertaining as their predecessors.

So, in an effort to plug may fave shows, and keep people watching, don't forget Gossip Girl, Mondays at 8PM on the CW, 90210 (also CW) Tuesdays at 8PM and Brothers and Sisters, Sunday nights at 10PM on ABC.

Oh, and, you're welcome.
