September 1 04

and that means that it’s back to school time!!

I love everything about back-to-school….even now, when i am no longer going back to school.

I love buying school supplies and new fall clothing.
I love the feel of a new daily planner and notebooks that haven’t been written in yet.
I love the idea of starting something new. Of going back to school and seeing all my friends and catching up.

I’m such a tool.

In keeping with today’s theme, here’s a quote from “Back to School”

Thornton Melon : What’s your favorite subject?
Bubbles: Poetry.
Thornton Melon : Really? Well, maybe you can help me straighten out my Longfellow.

Now that i’m no longer a student, even though i’m sending my little baby off to school next week, i can get excited about my other favorite thing about September:


shows i’m looking forward to seeing their season premieres:

as a side note – the Sopranos would be my #1, but since it’s not starting for another five hundred years, i won’t add it to my list.

1) Gilmore Girls – come on people. Little Rory has lost her virginity – WITH A MARRIED MAN – i am dying that they’ve left me hanging all summer!

2) The West Wing – i know, i know, this show has seriously gone downhill and the whole Donna fiasco…come on….but, it’s a guilty pleasure for me. something about josh lyman just makes me smile…

3) The OC and One Tree Hill – yes, i’ve lumped them together. beautiful people hooking up with all sorts of other good looking people makes for really entertaining tv.

4) Survivor and the Amazing Race 6 – Yes, I still watch them, and yes, i do think they are still fantastic!

5) The Apprentice – “You’re Fired.” god I love that show.

Honorable mentions…Scrubs, Everybody Loves Raymond and Arrested Development. great shows. And I’m really liking Entourage these days.

shows i wish they would take off the air:

1) ER – i know i will get flogged for this one – most of my friends are serious die-hard fans, but face it, the moment Mark Green died, this show seriously jumped the shark. And if this was real life people, this ER would have been shut down a long time ago – it’s a biohazard if i ever saw one!

2) The Bachelor – let’s face it – it sucks. Haven’t the producers realized that not one bachelor has stayed with his pick??? There are no Ryan and Tristas on the Bachelor. Give it the axe already.

3) CSI Miami – David Caruso just can’t pull it off – he’s extremely irritating. Even though i can appreciate that one of the guys on the show was Slater in Dazed and Confused (which gets at least a 20-second giggle out of me), it’s still not enough to make this show worth watching.

4) 7th Heaven – please, oh please, put the Camden clan out of their misery

5) Big Brother – – – do i really need to explain this one???

  1. I do have to agree that I’m looking forward to another season of the Amazing Race and Survivor but I have to admit I can rarely make it to stay up to watch AR5 as it is! I’m really looking forward to Alias! Can’t wait!

    I’ll agree on The Bachelor with you. Being a long time fan and having watched most every season, it’s now getting old that NO ONE stays together! And then I just saw a preview that they are going to have two bachelors that the girls will pick from?! Just let it end. I do want to watch The Bachelorette because Jen from The Bachelor season with Andrew is on. But then, let it die!

  2. Scrubs should get more than an honourable mention – it’s HYSTERICAL. I actually spent a whole 1/2 hour last night laughing OUT LOUD at the premier. It’s so so funny. Arrested Development is also great, but I heard that it’s cancelled – could just be a rumour. As for CSI Miami and Big Brother – Blah, I say. BLAH!!!

  4. First and foremost, I think I have to clarify that I’d be one of your international readers (I’m from Singapore). So I was inadvertently spoiled re Gilmore Girls. Not your fault though. Just my bad luck. 😉

    I agree with you on ER. My first reaction when you mentioned ER was: ER is still on?!CSI Miami is boring. I think I only enjoy the original series. And I LOVE Amazing Race. I think it should go on forever. 😉

    Happy going back to school! 🙂

  5. Gilmore Girls – No-more Girls – please!

    The West Wing – isn’t there a 2 term limit for US Presidents? – tv’s most over-rated show

    The OC and One Tree Hill – gag/yack

    Survivor and the Amazing Race 6 – deja vous – put these puppies to bed

    The Apprentice – “You’re Boring.”

    Scrubs, Arrested Development, Entourage – are these even real shows? Who has time to watch all this crap?
