At least I tried

The television gods hate me! Did they not get the memo that I went back to work today after a two-week vacay? Did they not realize that I have just caught up with a very long list of DVRed shows? Why then did they pick today to roll out new stuff? WHY?!

Seriously, I have just watched (albeit fast forwarded through most of them) countless episodes of Gossip Girl, The Hills, Brothers and Sisters, and One Tree Hill. Side note: I so struggle with Gossip Girl. I just cannot seem to “get into it”, but the people I work for LOVE it, so I try. I am pretty sure my IQ has depreciated at a rapid pace because of all of this, but I feel bad deleting them without at least watching part of each episode. So I felt accomplished when my availability percentage was hovering near 50% at the end of last week. And then BAM!

I had every intention of working tonight. Actually, looking forward to doing something intellectual. As always, I watched my nightly dose of three newscasts and looked at the guide to see if there was anything to record. DANG IT! There were four new seasons starting! So much for my 50%.

In case you were wondering, no, I did not watch the Bachelor, mainly because there was still football on. Good football, too.
Even if the Longhorns were not on TV, I have a hard time watching seemingly well educated, strong, pretty women reduced to tears on national television after knowing a guy for all of 10 hours. I just feel bad for them.

Alright, I did watch like 5 minutes of it and it had some girl cooking hotdogs. I want her to win. No idea what her name is though.

Long story just to say that now I have too much crap TV to watch on my DVR.

I took my pain killers and settled in for One Tree Hill myself, then fell asleep listening to Bob yell at the Fiesta Bowl. But I was at school at 7:30 :)
