While the husband is away …


Yeah, so, David is in Philadelphia this week for work, so you know what that means, right?

That’s right. I’ve reactivated my profile.

No, no, it means I’m watching a lot of TV.

After taking my mighty, mighty good man to SFO yesterday afternoon, I went home and ordered the musical “Nine”on Comcast On Demand. I really wanted to see it in the theater, but since David wasn’t into it and the critics didn’t love it, I didn’t make it a priority. I should have listened to the critics. It’s got such a great cast, and I loved the director’s “Chicago,” but this movie was a big ol’ mess. Even the always-awesome Daniel Day-Lewis couldn’t save this movie. The story was lame, and the songs were lamer, and this is coming from a girl who loves musicals. I watch “Glee.” I even liked “Grease 2.”

After that disappointing outing, I decided to go for a sure thing and catch up on “Friday Night Lights.” I finished season three and caught up with the first two new episodes of the current season. Man oh man, if you are not watching “Friday Night Lights,” you are missing out. I’m so in love with this show right now. The writing, the acting … everything about it is on point right now. I’m mad at myself for letting the third season sit unwatched for so long. And, I’m bummed that I got through all the new episodes so I don’t have any to watch tonight.

I strongly encourage you to check out “Friday Night Lights” if you haven’t seen it. I think the football premise keeps some people away, but the show isn’t really about football. It’s about a small town. It’s about being a teenager. It’s about being a parent. It’s about relationships. Good buddy Kirk said that Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton’s Eric and Tammy Taylor are the most realistic portrait of a healthy adult relationship on TV. As someone who has been married for [checks her watch] a little more than two weeks, I have to agree. Also, Kyle Chandler is really cute, if that helps.

Now that “Lost” is ending, and I’m all but over “American Idol” (I definitely won’t be watching it next year), I’m going to be accepting applications to fill those slots. Right now, my top contender is “Breaking Bad” on AMC , but I’m taking recommendations if you’ve got some.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
