Late night ramblings [May. 24th, 2007|12:14 am]

Whew! What a week, and it's only half over. A warm welcome to all my new friends, who are no doubt wondering What the hey...I friended this person who never posts.

Is it just me, or am I going wonky wild with the w words tonight? I will work to wemedy that.

Since there is way too much going on and it is way too late to actually post something of substance, I will instead direct you to this list. Because I'm sure my long-time readers are growing nostalgic for the days when I plugged Firefly at least once every ten posts. But hey, over 3000 reviews can't be wrong. And since the regular TV season is winding down, you'll have plenty of nights when there's nothing to watch.

Speaking of TV, I'm sure you're also wondering what I thought of all the season finales, so here's some quick impressions:

Dancing with the Stars: For the first time, I didn't care. We didn't even bother to watch most of the season. But Apollo looked really, really happy when he won, so I'm happy for him.

American Idol: Since who should have won didn't win, I'm glad who won, won. I'm actually glad because I never want my real favorite to win, because the contract is (supposedly) so restrictive.

Heroes: As much as I adore this show, the ending was a letdown. Husband and I have come up with at least a billiondytwelve different and better ways it could have ended. It just didn't make sense. Like Peter couldn't fly all by himself? Sylar could stop bullets but couldn't stop Hiro running at him? The fight just starts to get interesting and Peter tells Nikki/Jessica "Never mind, you go sit on the sidelines"? Sheesh. I'm still totally watching next season, though.

Lost: Redeemed. Nuff said.

That's it. I'm going to bed. Big day tomorrow - Middle Daughter's Middle School graduation in the morning. Woot!

I love all of the alliteration with the Ws! ;D

I started watching Dancing this year, and then stopped about half way through. I just couldn't get into it - I've never watched before.

I watched AI this year, but didn't care who won. I only voted on charity night. However, between Blake and Jordin, she was definitely the best singer. Funny that Daughtry had the best selling debut album and he was only fourth runner-up, eh?

What about Grey's Anatomy? Aren't you a fan? :-)

Have fun at the graduation! My students are all very excited about our 8th grade promotion ceremony next Thursday.

I'm not exactly a fan of GA, because Meredith makes me want to blow up my television. But I thought the season finale was awesome, just because the scene where she cuts Christina out of the dress was so perfect.

and I have about a million theories and have to wait until JANUARY 2008 to see if any of them play out. Arghhhhhh.....

Melinda should have won, but Jordin was a better 2nd choice than Blake.

Dancing/Stars: Didn't watch it this season. It conflicted with Heroes and 24.

Re: Yay LOST

Someone sent me a link to a website that claims Kate is really Ben's childhood friend Annie, and supposedly the producers have confirmed it. I just don't see it, though.

So, who do you think was in the coffin?

Re: Yay LOST

Let me know if you want any good LOST websites - tons of excellent & thought provoking info. But no, Kate and Annie are not the same person.

Who is in the coffin? The screen shots of the newspaper obituary show a first name of Ja and a last name of atham. We're obviously missing the last part of the first name and the first part of the last name. Obvious choices? James (aka Sawyer, taking on a new last name) or the mysterious Jacob. I'd like it to be Ben, though.

Who do you think? Where do you think the series is headed now? I think there is a time loop... Someone wrote a theory that makes total sense - so of course it will be wrong. :-)

Lost & Heroes....best shows out there (although the Heroes finale was somewhat lame.)

I didn't watch all of Dancing but am glad Apolo won. He's just cool.

American Idol was a let down this season. I'm ok with Jordin winning. I really enjoyed Blake but didn't think he'd win anyway. I just wasn't WOW'd by anyone really. They're good, but I wasn't won over.

Don't watch Heroes or Lost. But Big Brother starts again soon. Do you watch that one?

I've never watched Big Brother. But I'm counting the days until Hell's Kitchen!

I've seen the previews for Hell's Kitchen but have never watched. Seems like too much yelling going on.

Well, I wouldn't have noticed the w's until you brought it to my attention. lol -

First of all: Congrats to middle daughter! YaY!!!

I think this was the first season I didn't vote for an American Idol fave. I had several that I liked but I wasn't as glued to it this year for whatever reason.

Yeah, no one just grabbed me this year. But I let Middle Daughter vote - she voted for Blake and Jordin every week.
