Ya'll, I actually missed not having any Studio 60 to watch last night. It made me kinda sad. Does this mean I'm starting to fangirl it? I ended up listening to Corinne Bailey Rae's "Trouble Sleeping" this morning to console myself. I'm also feeling some The Office withdrawal from last week. I may have to rewatch a couple of episodes to ward off the DTs.

We still have not put up our tree and decorations yet. Between all the parties we had this weekend (a white elephant party, a glogg party and a skating party for the munchkin), and my knitting date with Libby, there just wasn't time. Btw, [livejournal.com profile] austin360, we've got a cocktail party Friday night, but it's at 5:00, so I'm guessing we'll be home between 7:00 and 8:00 if you still want to hang out. And yes, I could have emailed you, but this is me being lazy.

Speaking of knitting with Libby, we've been watching Veronica Mars season one, which she's never seen, and we're getting to the really good part. It's so much fun watching her get totally sucked into it as the season progresses. During "Mars vs. Mars" she was like, "Poor Logan. (pause) He's really cute. Wait, when did that happen?" Hee! "Just wait," I told her. "It gets better."

And because it's been ages since I did a meme... here's my stocking )

My heart goes out to all the Flanvention folks who got screwed with their pants on by Booster Events. Mad props, however, to the California Browncoats for hustling to make the best of a bad situation and to the Browncoats everywhere who are opening their wallets to help them out. And even more props to Adam Baldwin for showing up anyway.

I'm also sending out lots of snoogles and healthy thoughts to [livejournal.com profile] kelbelle, who is one of the bravest and most amazing women I know.

I made some pumpkin bread last night using the Libby's recipe, but it's only okay. Anyone got a totally kick-ass recipe they'd like to share?

This week's Studio 60, by the way? Really damn good. And you know why? Aaron did almost all of my Five Things. I'm just saying. Also, I didn't think it was possible within the bounds of the physical world as we understand it for Bradley Whitford to be any more adorable than he already was, but apparently I was wrong. Damn.

I've been watching a ton of Scrubs on Comedy Central and falling in love with that show all over again. They reran the episode where Carla finds out she's pregnant on Wednesday, and then last night's new episode on NBC was Carla finally having the baby. Why isn't this show the number one comedy and completely weighed down with Emmys? There is no justice. At least NBC is (sort of) keeping it around, albeit intermittently.

I am, at this very moment, eating THE BEST pumpkin spice muffin I've EVER had. Ever. And it came, not from a fancy bakery or a cafe or a coffee shop, but from the grocery store. If any of you have Randall's in your area, run out and get yourself a muffin--now.

So, is it me, or is Studio 60 starting to (finally) hit its stride? I watched "The Option Period" with [livejournal.com profile] mikijean last week and we both found it surprisingly enjoyable. And I thought "B-12" was even better this week. Please, please let this be a trend. The characters are likable, the cast has good chemistry, and Aaron's a fantastic writer, so there's no reason this show shouldn't be great.

[livejournal.com profile] mikijean and I did a lot of knitting and a lot of television watching and a lot of talking about both, and we decided that we need to start up a consulting business "fixing" television shows. Because that's essentially what the two of us do when we get together anyway, and wouldn't it be cool if we could get paid for it and people would actually listen to our advice, and then we wouldn't have to watch so much disappointing television?

So, herewith, is a list of Five Things Aaron Sorkin Can Do to Fix Studio 60 )

Shonda Rhimes, Rob Thomas, Hart Hanson, Tim Kring, and Ron Moore, feel free to contact me for your own, personally-tailored notes on how you, too, can make your shows totally more awesome.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go bake twelve dozen cookies for a cookie exchange tomorrow morning.

Wow, ya'll, 30 Rock was not funny. I'm not sure what happened there, because I'm pretty sure Tina Fey can write better than that. And what was the deal with the tri-vection oven thing? Seriously, I thought they made it up until they showed a commercial for the damn thing. They're mocking NBC/GE at the same time as they're whoring Tina Fey out to sell stoves? The hell?

I finally got around to watching this week's Heroes, which was slightly less clunky, thanks to Jeph Loeb's writing on this episode. I only wish he was the showrunner and not Tim Kring, and then maybe I could bring myself to care more. I still want Porn Mom and Invincible Cheerleader to Just. Go. Away. Porn Mom, because she takes her kid with her to bury dead bodies in the desert. And Invincible Cheerleader for having two accidents in two weeks that would have been fatal to anyone sans superpowers (not even counting the Gross Disposer Incident). What. Ever.

The new fall season is so uninspiring that Studio 60 is honestly the best new show I've seen, for all its flaws.

Okay, so now I have officially seen two episodes of Studio 60 and I feel comfortable saying that... Cut for spoilers )
