TV Bliss {AKA the 2010 Fall Television Lineup}

I am a TV junkie. I wouldn't dream of pretending not to be. Ok, it is a little embarrassing sometimes when people are talking about shows they watched and I have seen the ALL, but oh well. I don't always get to watch them when they are on TV but I have managed to stay caught up on some of my faves using the ole' interwebs. I have contemplated getting DVR capabilities in my house but I could sincerely see my life spiraling out of control if that was an option!! Ok, maybe it wouldn't be that serious of a situation, but I would be bad. Trust me on this. I'm out of control. Geez.

So here's a little run down of shows I already love, I'm looking forward to and I wish I could watch. Don't judge me. I know I have a problem. I will get help when I am ready ok people?!?! Moving On.

I have to give them credit ... FOX is bringing it again this year. So many great shows. Someone on the FOX show scouting staff needs a mega-raise for locking down all these amazing shows for one network in the same season. SO EXCITING!!

NBC doesn't have a great lineup in my opinion, but it is home to two of my MOST favorite shows (Parenthood & The Biggest Loser)! 


ABC is holding on to shows I already love (Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers & Sisters, Cougar Town & of course, Modern Family). They are also premiering 2 that I am looking forward to checking out this season (Mr. Sunshine & Secret Millionaire). 

CBS has disappointed me in the past, but I am optimistic for the Fall lineup. 

I don't even know what to say about these two networks. I don't have premium cable. If HBO and Showtime were available to me on a regular basis I could see my life spiraling out of control!! Ok, maybe it wouldn't be that serious of a situation, but I would be bad. Trust me on this. 
True Blood and Big Love. From a world where Vampires walk among us in True Blood to a tale of modern day polygamy in Big Love. How do you love them both?! I don't know. It just works.

Showtime brings to the table Weeds, The Big C, The United States of Tara & The Tudors. Delicious.

Orange Crush

No. Not the drink. The softball team. Our softball team to be exact. Scott & I decided to join a coed softball team in the Spring and they asked us to play again during the Fall with pretty much the same group. Our first game was last night and we pulled out a big win of 16 - 9. Go Team!!

I happen to think our new jerseys did the trick to get us started out on the right foot. We looked a little like the bad news bears last season. Everyone in random shirts and different colored shorts. It was kind of a mess. I opted to create a new logo for us and this season ... the Crush plays in style. You like?

In other news, I hit two triples in the last two innings of the game. I'm pretty proud of myself. Go Me!

Free MP3 Download

As I often do, I grew bored listening to my usual satellite radio stations yesterday so I started flipping around. I stumbled on to this cover of the U2 great "With or Without You".  My gut reaction was who would dare touch this song?! In true nerd fashion ... I hopped on my computer and tried to figure out who this mystery woman was. Her name is Sarah Darling. Looks like she has been trying to break out in the country scene. Such a cutie pie, right?

I listened to a few of her other songs on her website. I'm not entirely sold on her as an artist I would listen to all the time, but there is something I really enjoy about the was she covered this particular song. It sort of has a Jewel vibe going on. I LOVE the original, but the two versions are so different I genuinely enjoy them both. Amazon.com currently has a free MP3 download of her version if you are interested.

Are you ready for some football?

I know I am!! I can't wait in fact. This year I won't be working any games, which is actually sort of sad, but I do love some good football anyway I can get it. It will be nice to hang out with friends, watch a game from the comfort of a couch, munching on homemade goodies and sporting my UGA lounge pants! Believe it kids. The time has come & I am going to thoroughly enjoy this football season.

Tonight it's the Falcons vs. Jacksonville in FL @ 7:30 pm. Let's go Falcons ... let's go!!

Falling into Fall

September 1. I absolutely love this time of year. The world around us starts to change. The mundane transforms into the wildly colorful. The world just seems to slow down a notch or two. I can just feel that the end is drawing near. As my eyes are transfixed on the calendar, I literally cannot believe it. Knowing that we are on the downhill slide of another year ending leaves me feeling ... expectant. There are so many things I wanted to have done by now. Don't get me wrong, the list of completed home improvements, fun projects, handmade gifts, vacations, fun weekends, spontaneous outings, delicious meals, etc. is LONG and varied. There just never seems to be enough hours in the day, days in the week or weeks in the year to get it ALL done. Blogging, unfortunately, seems to be one of my "to-do"items that far to easily gets pushed to the bottom of the stack every time the priorities in life start to pile up. Sorry little blog. I am sure by now you have serious abandonment issues. My bad.

My little slice of the internet pie is the epitome of all the things in my life that "I'll do tomorrow". Then, just when I are sure that today will be the day that I catch up on everything ... I don't. Before you know it, months have passed, the blog remains post-less and I feel that much more behind. I hate that feeling. The one that feels like no matter how fast you run or how much you do, you still fall just a few inches shy of the goal.

I like keeping this little electronic record of mine. Even if no one else gets anything out of it. Here's to the road ahead. I hope it winds its way to more good times, a heaping helping of fantastic memories and an end to another year that I can look back on with no regrets. Welcome September. I can't wait to see how the 2010 ends.
