Hey Meg! Love the new blog!! If I can't get you on Facebook, a blog will definitely do!

I can't believe Friday Night Lights was essentially shut out. I freaking fraking hate Boston Legal! It's awful. And don't get me started on Two and A Half Men. Sigh.

I guess I should just be happy that The New Adventures of Old Christine got some loving!!!!
