My Old Man Crush Part Deux

Woke up before 4 am this morning because mom has to go to the bathroom. So I ended up watching the two episodes of Dear John that are on at 4 a.m.

Why does Dear John have to be on that early?

Fell asleep and had a strange dream about Judd Hirsch. I dreamed that he was a college professor at the University I went to and we were walking down Main Street in California.

Very weird.

Dear John

I loved Dear John when it aired in the late 80s and early 90s. I think I might have had a crush on Judd Hirsch when I was a teenager too.

I just found out that it was based on a short running series in the UK.

I watched the first episode and a half tonight and I have to say, they were freaking hilarious. This was also the first time I think the US did a good job bring a UK show across the pond. I think part of it has to do with Judd Hirsch. He is a pretty damn good actor.

I highly recommend watching both shows, which are on youtube. The best character on the UK version is Louise, played by Rachel Bell. She is absolutely fabulous.

You really need to watch these shows.

Do I Have A Type

I was thinking about whether or not I have a type when it comes to the opposite sex. I think I've come to the conclusion that I don't.

I like the quirky sort....

But I do like classically handsome too

Finally A Funny Big Bang Theory

The season finale of Big Bang Theory had to be the best of  the season. I think that was pretty much because they had all the parents on the show, including Leonard's father who we see for the first time in this one. It makes things better because his dad is played by Judd Hirsch, who basically steals every scene that he's in. (And OMG Johnny Galecki looks like he could be his son)

I have a huge crush on Judd Hirsch. I've loved him since Dear John back in the late 80s and early 90s, but I really fell for him in Numb3rs.

I still haven't forgiven ABC for cancelling Forever. I adored that show and it deserved a chance that ABC wasn't willing to give it.

I hope he'll make a few appearances next season, especially after the ending of tonight's show.

It has been awhile.

I keep telling myself I'm going to be a better blogger again, but life keeps me from doing so. So do all these wonderful books I have piling up.

Here's a few things going on in my life.

~ Still trying to get in exercise. I'm still doing Zumba Basic, because I have no coordination for these steps. The have easy beats, showing the levels to get to the correct move. For the most part, I can do up to easy beat 2. Oh and I look like a lumbering cow doing these things.

~ I bought two other DVDS...and uh...Denise Austin's cardio workout is for the birds. You aren't supposed to be in a sweat while warming up. 'nuff said.

~ There is nothing sweeter than a kitty cat hug. I have a few kitties that like hugs and when they want one they stand up and put their front paws on my shoulders.  That, my friends is love.

~ Election 2016 = YUCK. Let's give ourselves back to Britain. I think we'd be better off, especially with the scary ass choices we have on both sides right now. (At least in the lead positions)

~ My sister sucks the life out of me. For the last 5 years or more I've cooked supper for my family as well as my sister and the nephew still lives at home. (The other nephew lives with us). By the time I finish supper and dealing with her, I'm totally drained. We used to be fairly close, but several years back she was in an accident and had to stay with us for 4 months. Lets just say our relationship has never been the same since.

So that's least for now.

Zumba Will Be The Death Of Me

Ok, I'm trying to get back into a shape other than a roundish pear. So I shelled out $60 for a Zumba set. I was ambitious the first day and tried a regular workout. Bad idea. I'm 41, fat and uncoordinated. So last night I decided to look through the dvds and found the basics disc that teaches you the moves for all the areas they work on in the other discs. It proved to me, I have no coordination and that I now understand why Richard Simmons did so well with his show. Why? The dancers on the Zumba videos are all teeny tiny, which doesn't make a fat girl feel too good and the moves are way more complicated then they make them out to be. I guess I'll be doing the Basic Steps Workout for a few weeks before I can build up to anything else. ~sigh~ I probably should have bought the discs for the Baby Boomer Set.

Its Been A Rough Week

I feel like my life is one big "woe is me."

Mom is home from the hospital. She's eating better now, but because those idjits at MVH decided to do all her PT in her hospital bed, she's not really able to stand, which means potty time isn't fun, as she's preferred a couch to a bed for the last 8 years. In fact, she's miserable in the hospital because she's in a bed.

Hopefully we'll have PT coming to the house soon, because I don't know how I'm going to deal with it otherwise.

I know we may be hitting a point again when things won't be getting better and frankly I'm scared to death of that. Losing my dad was hard enough, I'm not ready for anything to happen to mom.

Life Interruptus AGAIN

Mom is in the hospital again.

I had great plans of blogging on a more regular basis again.

No luck there.

A whole lot of craziness though.

Mom has an infection, possibly just a UTI or a kidney infection and she was dehydrated, possibly from her own trying to keep from retaining too much fluid and possibly from the infection.

We cant win for losing.

I need a vacation from my life.

TV Shows I'm Sick Of

Thanks to all the strange channels that air classic tv, I'm reminded that tv used to be funny and good. There's very little that I watch these days that are on the big 4 channels.

The Big Bang Theory used to be a favorite of mine, but when they started marrying everyone off the show started to lose its luster. In fact, if it weren't for one of the guest stars I probably wouldn't even watch the rest of the season, because I haven't found it funny in a very long time.

Modern Family was another show I used to adore, but now it isn't fun anymore. I still like most of the characters, but when Lily started growing up, she just became too obnoxious.

Fresh Off The Boat was cute in its first season, but it got old pretty fast.

I've totally given up on any and all cop dramas...Law and Order, Criminal Minds, CSI, & much as I love some of the characters on these shows, they've all overstayed their welcome.

I wish there would be some new show that showed some originality.

TV sucks.
