On the Glowy Box: ...Cajun style.

Taking Friday off work: One vacation day. Taking the bus up to New York to spend my birthday weekend with awesome friends after a crazy week at work: Priceless. Okay, actually $35 round trip. But kind of priceless, right?

Last Night:
30 Rock: I actually find it difficult to write about this show, because it is so goddamn funny that I just want to tell everyone to watch the episode! And if they already did, to watch it again! And yeah, last night's episode was just that funny. From James Carville to a cookie trophy to Kenneth at a dinner party, it just couldn't have had any more jokes. I'm overwhelmed just trying to express how hard I was laughing throughout. So I'm just going to stop and leave you to ponder the awesomeness that is 30 Rock. Seriously, sit for a minute and think about it.

Scrubs: Speaking of awesomeness, last night's episode was all kinds of classic. Read my full review here.

Grey's Anatomy: It was a lot to take in...but definitely had some high points. Read my full review here.

This Weekend:
Women's Murder Club: The women investigate a drag queen's murder; Lindsay's ex-husband ties the knot; Jill's fiancé discovers a painful secret. Tonight, 9 PM, ABC.

Psych: Gus' dad is the prime suspect when a neighbor is found dead. Tonight, 10 PM, USA.

Yay, Psych! Now if only they could bring Burn Notice back for a special holiday episode...

It's only $35? Wow! Lucky you! Too bad we will miss each other! I'm headed down Tuesday -next Sunday for some NY Christmas cheer!

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I still can't figure out why more people don't watch 30 Rock. It's easily the best show on TV (I know, I know, Galactica is awesome, but...don't ask me to justify my opinion) and have you ever read a bad review of the show? Yet you and I are the only people who watch. What a shame.

I think the more positive reaction 30 Rock gets (i.e. from us bloggers), we could see a rise in ratings. At least, I certainly hope so. 6 million per week ain't bad, but that means a lot of folks are missing out on the funniest show on TV. And yes, that's a damn shame!

Heather said...

I love 30 Rock! It is funny as hell I find it hard to write about as well. But you have inspired me to do so. The more buzz the better the ratings.

Liz said...

So then we're settled: Everyone write about 30 Rock, and one by one, we will convert the rest of America. They will be the Followship Award Winners to our GM/NBC corporation, if you are able to follow that convoluted analogy...

And Vance: Thanks! Yeah, the Chinatown bus isn't always reliable, but IS always cheap. Also, I caught the Xanadu matinee today and WOW. That is some campy amazingness. Though I did suffer a glowstick-related injury...

Vance said...

Oh, the Chinatown bus! Awesome! Yeah, well, being chinese, I've done it a few times. I had one: DC, NY, Philly, Baltimore, Atlantic City in 4 days, 4 star hotels, $150 CDN. I was young with my parents so it was required of me to go...


You got hit with a glowstick?

Liz said...

The Chinatown bus is quality stuff. Sure, we may have hit a dude's car on the way up there, and sure, our bus driver may have attempted to bribe said dude, but you can't argue with $35 round trip.

Yep, I have a cut on my nose to prove it! They give out glowsticks to everyone for lighting/waving around during the final song (AWESOME), but after it ended and we were getting ready to walk out, someone in the balcony must've thrown/dropped their glowstick onto the orchestra level. So a glowstick basically came out of nowhere and popped me in the nose. It was quite a shock, but also probably one of the more amusing ways to get cut on the nose, so well worth the momentary pain.

Vance said...

Oh yeah, I totally saw it and loved it. I was just worried some big queen was overexcited and popped you in the nose with the glowstick but apparently it was gods doing.

Liz said...

I think you mean Zeus's doing. :)

To be fair, a big queen in the balcony could've been overexcited and flung the glowstick over the rail...but I'll stick with the Zeus theory.
