Is it any wonder I've got too much (clap, clap) time on my hands?

Yeah, yeah... it was a really bad idea to start a blog weeks before starting living hell (a.k.a. grad school). I never said I had good timing... buuuuut, it is now winter break and as Styx put it "I've got to much time on my hands."

This morning I got a simply stated email from one of my posh friends saying that her Google reader was jonesing for my blog... so I'm back by popular demand... ok one person wanting to read my ramblings isn't really a call for crowd control, but I am sure I could convince my other former readers to stop by my url.

My last final was just four days ago and I already feel like a new person. Just prior to re-joining academia my days were filled with yoga, talk shows, and making dinero. Here's the short list of things I used to take for granted that I now sell my organs for teh time to do them:
1. Bravo Reality TV
2. Exercise!!
3. Reading books with titles that do not contain the words ortho/patho/cardio
4. Spending Sundays in bed nursing a hangover with rom-coms

Ahhhhh.... the small things in life.

So what have I accomplished since Friday afternoon... not a whole hell of a lot! I did discover a fab new TV channel called REELZ (Comcast 198). So glad I did not discover this hidden gem until after the semester ended... it contains classics such as re-runs of Ally McBeal and Brothers & Sisters (side note: Do Mr. & Mrs. Harrison Ford own the station... valid questio, right?). Is there a better way to spend a snowy afternoon? I didn't think so!

What does confuse me about the channel are there bizarre sponsors. In my humble opinion, they should be targeting the pre-school moms, but instead these are the two stellar commercials that just aired:

This cheap piece of plastic can get you a six pack in 6 minutes and you don't even have to stand up!

The other dazzling mini infomercial that had my mouth dropping from pure amazement was this...

I wonder if they have rush shipping available?

Well, that's all for now... tune in post-Wednesday evening's Holiday Happy Hour for some more loquaciousness!


  1. Hey there Kate. Just stopping by - via Facebook. It's Lisa from way-back-Striders. I hope that you enjoy your break and get a chance to meet your goals (without selling your organs):-)

  2. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! The blogosphere and my google reader missed you!

    PS. I think my mom got my sister the Fushigi ball thingy. I'll tell you how it works.
