New TV, Michael Clayton and the Merritt Contest

Humorous Pictures
Enter the ICHC online Poker Cats Contest!

Wow, Lost and Supernatural continued to be awesome!!! I was shocked by the end of Supernatural. And as always, in Lost, I love the Kate and Sawyer scenes.

Now that the strike is over (yes I am that far behind) I'm wondering when my shows will start up again.

24 won't be back till 2009.

BSG (technically the dh's show) will return April 4.

Bones will be back April 14. (new night, BTW)

Burn Notice will return in July.

FNL is not making any new shows and may be cancelled!!!! WAH!!!

Grey's Anatomy will be back April 24.

Heroes won't be back till fall.

Jericho will just finish up what it had, which was 6 episodes, so that leaves 4, yes?

Lost has a couple more, then will resume April 24.

Men in Trees will start next week (YAY!) with 11 new episodes.

Moonlight will resume on April 11.

My Name is Earl will resume on April 3.

The Office will return on April 10.

Supernatural will return April 24.

We also watched Michael Clayton last night. GC is soooo Gabe from Hot Shot. Anyway, the last scene is shot at the hotel where we had the 2003 conference! I recognized the chandelier.

My Microsoft Word is doing a weird formatting thing. It's showing arrows for tabs and p for paragraphs and I don't know what I did and how to turn it off!

The boy is heading for his first out of town trip tonight. I won't even see him today!

Cindi and her husband and another 5th grade teacher took the day off....lucky!

I am caught up on Vanished, but haven't written a lick on my Wayback story this week. And I'm reading through my small town story looking for a magic moment for the Merritt, since the deadline has been extended.
