American Idol:
Rosie shut up. Are you effin’ kidding me? This is not the first season. The people who are getting made fun of knew exactly what they were getting into when they tried out. I feel a little sorry for them, because it is always hard to think that you are doing a good job only to find out that you don’t have what it takes. It’s tough. And getting dogged on sucks, it’s true. But if you knew it was a snake pit when you jumped in, I’m not going to protest the snakes once you get bit.

Super Bowl Commercials:
Coke? *groan* Too hocus pocus weirdo for me. Budweiser? Awesome! Clever, funny, and I’ve got to give ’em props for imitating an ESL classroom! Nice! CareerBuilder.com? No comment. GM? Aww, poor depressed little machine! Cute, but it was an eye-roller. (What other ones were there? Those are the only ones that I recall.)

TV Shows:
I never used to have “shows”, but now I do. I’m not proud of that, but since I’m being honest with myself, I have to admit. LOST: C A N N O T W A I T. I hear talk of wrapping up the show. Prison Break: I wish I had the self-control to wait until the end of the season so I could watch them all back-to-back. Like we did with LOST last summer. THAT is the way to watch TV shows. No commercials. And no waiting one week for the next installment!!! Wentworth Miller. Yum. Bellick? Hate ‘im. Mahone? Hate ‘im. But they are both damn good actors. I’m especially impressed with Mahone, and if you’ve ever seen Drowning Mona, you’d be impressed too. Gray’s Anatomy: I’m coming out. I’m a fan. I really like Gray’s Anatomy. (Thanks Deanna!!!)

So far, so good. I like my classes okay, my students seem good, and I have more confidence teaching a new course than I thought I would at this point in the semester. I have a pretty good schedule (no classes on Tuesday and Thursday), and so far, I’m “using it wisely.” I even have work outs schedule 5 days a week! Sweet, huh? This should be my last semester of coursework, and I plan to graduate in August. I believe that I can accomplish it, too, and that’s important. I know some of you reading this never doubted it, but you know when you are working on something hard, you stop believing in yourself every now and then. But it comes back.

I’ll close with quotes from Rules of Engagement:
When you are single, you’re exactly as happy you are. When you are married, you can only be as happy as the least happy person in the relationship.

Her: “Are you ever serious?”
Him: “Tried it once. It wasn’t funny.”
