Happy Groundhog Day!

February 2, 2010

There are meatballs in the crockpot and they are making the whole house smell soooo good. I can’t take it. I might have to eat some before The Boy gets home. (Okay, fine. I already ate two. Whatever. I made them, so I should get to have a couple at least!)

Today is Groundhog Day. That means if the groundhog sees his shadow, then there will be six more weeks of winter.

This makes no sense to me, because a) how can they tell if the groundhog sees his shadow? b) six more weeks of winter puts us at mid-March, and when have you ever heard of spring starting before mid-March? and c) the movie Groundhog Day is only on once today, at 6 pm on Bravo, which seems like a missed opportunity to me.

Anyway, I don’t believe in Phil the groundhog.

I prefer to hurry spring up by using positive thinking techniques, like refusing to wear my coat as long as it’s over thirty degrees, or celebrating when it’s still light out at 5:30. It totally works.

Well, sometimes.

Oh, well. At least if it’s winter and I have to stay inside, there is plenty of good TV on.

Like The Bachelor, which is very good this season and included a contestant getting kicked off for having a scandalous affair with a crew member!

The only thing is that they’re calling it The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love since the bachelor is a pilot. Which is pretty cheesy, but whatev.

And Life Unexpected, which is OMG, so good AND it has Kerr Smith in it. (Is it weird, though, that all the people from Dawson’s Creek are now playing parents? It seems wrong. Like James Vanderbeek playing a single dad in that one Lifetime move, MRS. MIRACLE. He should be back in his bedroom with Katie Holmes!)

Make It Or Break It is still always good, and Being Erica (am I the only one who watches this?) is in its second season. Plus American Idol is back, and The Amazing Race is starting up again on the 14th. (Starring Jeff and Jordan from Big Brother!)

I just realized it is pretty embarrassing that I watch all these shows. But at least I DVR them so that I can watch whenever. But still. How did I have time to write five books last year?

Maybe the TV is motivating me?

More later,
xx

    Wow, a real live American watching Being Erica! It’s actually a Canadian show, produced by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation). Our TV shows don’t usually get exported. (Except for toons. Some of which I’ve written!) It’s pretty good, huh?
