Feeling Like A BIGGEST LOSER To Be So LOST In the Life of My Favorite BACHELOR, CHUCK

How about that for a blog post title?

There's no clues as to what keeps me entertained in the evening hours, huh?

Seriously, I find myself extremely thankful in these icky winter months for the cozy shows that my family follows in the evenings. On certain days that it just rains and rains - considering an upcoming episode of CHUCK - being able to cuddle up with my best friend to watch it - that's what gets me through.

When I'm on minute 17 of my workout, and think "Do I really want to continue?" - considering the plight of those contestants on BIGGEST LOSER - that's what gets me through.

As for BACHELOR - well, that's just a guilty pleasure. I followed Jake on the previous season with Jillian and think he is a really upstanding guy. Why he has kept Vienna on, well, that's beyond me - but haven't we all met folks in our life that act a completely different way depending on who their company is? I think that and serious immaturity is her story. My favorite is Tenley - and of course, that would have nothing to do with the fact that she's from Oregon - and actually has ties to a few people I know..... =)

Finally, LOST. Sigh...... That show is like a puzzle that those of us viewers have been putting together for the past five years. I love the depth of it - the challenge. It's almost its own mental sharpening tool just trying to figure it all out (not to mention trying to remember what happened nearly 9 months ago!). John and I had to hit the pause button a couple of times to remind ourselves what was going on, and what had gone on. These are the days that I love my DVR, and I love my east coast feed on DirecTV (we got grandfather'd into that when we initially signed up years and years ago before they offered local channels - it's a pretty fluke thing around here, as even employees of DirecTV aren't able to access that perk. For our family, who all like to be in bed by 9, it's a very beautiful thing). Tonight, we were able to watch AMERICAN IDOL, the premiere 2 hour episode of LOST and fast forward through the highlights of BIGGEST LOSER before 9:30.

And, yes, this is the post that I hesitate to blog about - because I can just imagine what might be rolling through the random reader's mind. But, hey, why start worrying about that now, huh?
=)

P.S. One of the only bummers about the east coast channels is getting their weather forecasts - currently New York City has had about two hours of snow already - with school delays/closures already being talked about. I'm not such a happy camper about this El Nino weather pattern that has kept us plenty gloomy - but has kept the snowfall at bay......ick.

It really came quite easily Julie, (the title) - I guess I'm talented in that skill of putting my favorite tv shows in a sentence. It's a good thing Survivor, Amazing Race, and Flashforward aren't on......

(I had a FLASHFORWARD that I was a SURVIVOR on AMAZING RACE?!)
