This and that

This evening I had to drag myself up from a nap to make it to my prenatal massage appointment. I know, tough life, right? The massage was even better than last time, especially since she worked on my swollen feet a bit. It felt soooo nice.

A co-worker mentioned to me that Jack in the Box has a new tasty treat called mac bites, which are basically bits of mac n cheese fried in a tempura-like batter. So I picked some up on the way home for dinner. They were delicious, but I don't think I'd go for the large size again. There is such a thing as too much fried goodness.

I topped my night off with the new CW show, Privileged. While I can't get past how much the lead looks like my beautiful blogger pal, Heather, I'm digging the premise. (Someone described it as Gilmore Girls meets Gossip Girl, neither of which I've watched.) I'll check it out again next week.

Anyone watch True Blood on HBO? I'm not in love with it yet, but I did enjoy it and look forward to seeing what they do next week. I also think Bill the Vampire is easy on the eyes, a sort of scruffy Paul Rudd. Rawr.

I'm adding lots of new shows to my TV repertoire seeing as how this fall I'll be spending a lot of time in front of the TV while feeding Em Dash. I imagine I won't be able to do much with a baby attached to me, but it'll be worth it.

"If a vampire bat was in the U.S., it would make sense for it to come to a “-sylvania.” Like Penn-sylvania. Now that doesn’t mean that Jim is going to become a vampire. Only that he carries the vampiric germ." - Dwight, The Office

  1. I'm watching Privileged on delay right now, and I like. It's nothing like Gossip Girl, but I agree that it's similar to Gilmore Girls.

  6. Hmm, I will have to add Privileged to my DVR list... by the way, get DVR if you don't have it- it really saves you during those late night feedings! :)

  9. LOVE the quote! I saw the last few minutes of True Blood to tune into Entourage. I need to catch the beginning on demand. Hot vampires, eh? interesting. I dont know if I can fit that many new shows onto my list; I'm trying to add Raising the Bar and Rachel Zoe Project. Too much damn good TV ;)

  10. A Paul Rudd look-a-like could convince me to subscribe to HBO...

  11. Tell Brent to get used to that baby face. You guys will be seeing that look quite a bit soon, with crying to go along with it!

  12. I watched Privelaged too, and I actually liked it a lot. Joanna Garcia (the lead) was on a show I watched called Reba (an sitcom I was in love with), so I originally just watched it in support of her, but I ended up enjoying it. I don't like it as much as the new 90210, but it's good.

  14. Good idea with all the tv shows. Unfortunately when Ben was born all the shows were on hiatus (due to the union issues), so there wasn't much to choose from. I ended up watching 3 straight months of Food Network. Your new repertoire sounds so much better.

  15. I did watch True Blood. I'm with you though - not in love with it yet. I read the books that it is based on - you should try one of them.

  16. I walked in on the hubby watching True Blood the other night. Apparently I had just missed the part where they were watching vampire porn. I watched the rest of the episode with him and it was ok. I liked the best friend character. She was a hoot.
