scrubs: yes, it’s a show

Posted by on Feb 21, 2010 in fun/interesting | 4 comments

I’m not exactly sure what season I first started watching Scrubs in, but I’m going to guess somewhere around 1 or 2.

The first episode I watched I hated.

I’m sure it had something to do with the mood that I was in, because it wasn’t but a matter of weeks (or months) before I walked in on a marathon of Scrubs watching at the old Klan bachelor pad and fell in love.  Since that fateful moment, I have followed the show with bated breath.

I was definitely sad when I heard that the show was ending, and while the final episode was supremely awesome, I was even more sad after watching it.

Then came along what I will henceforth call the “bonus” season, which was aptly titled Scrubs med school.

This bonus season was definitely not as good as regular Scrubs, but I have been perfectly fine with that.  The bonus served a much greater and more important purpose than continuing the legacy of Scrubs.  It served to dull the pain of the end of 8 great years.

As the bonus season progressed the loss of the familiar faces, and my particular loss of interest, helped to ease me in to a world where JD and Turk would never again share their guy love in my living room.

This bonus season, while nothing in comparison to the real thing, has made me okay with the end.  For that fact alone, I consider it a success.

a little effort

Posted by on Jan 25, 2009 in fun/interesting, life, thoughts, updates | 1 comment

So, I’m putting a little more effort into this posting thing. Mostly because I feel stupid having a blog that I never post to, and partly because I just feel like it.

It was a few weeks ago, but I had a seriously good time in Chicago with sister. I spent way too much on food, but it was all soooo good. It was really great to spend some time with just me and my sister. We actually got to have some good conversation that went below surface level. Nothing really crazy happened while I was there (except I did miss my train back home and had to catch a later one, but there weren’t any incidents with that). We did find a really cool bookstore that had like more bookshelf space than it had walking space (and floor to ceiling books, I didn’t know it was possible till I saw it).

Classes are going well as usual. I’m mostly enjoying them, although they are still in the beginning stages so it’s hard to tell how I’ll feel by the end.

Well, I think that’s it.

jury duty and other oddities

Posted by on Aug 18, 2008 in fun/interesting, life | 1 comment

Today as I was driving home from the Riverview Annual Staff meeting retreat I realized that I was supposed to “report” for jury duty this week and that I had forgot to do so (I wasn’t even sure it was this week).  Luckily when I finally called the right place, they told me that I was not needed today and so I was off the hook (what would have happened to me if they needed me today, I don’t know).  The weird thing is that to “report” for jury duty means I have to call this number after 5pm every day this week to see if they need me the next day.  I’ve never really known anyone that has had to report for jury duty, so it’s kinda weird.

My other oddity is that my scale seems to be smoking crack.  Not more than 5 days ago it was saying that I weighed 184 lbs (yikes!), which was the 5 lbs I said I lost in my last post.  Strangely for the last few days it has been saying that I weigh 189 lb.  I’m not sure how this is possible.  I know your weight fluctates throughout the day/week, but seriously?  I’m all bummed out about these numbers, wondering if I really even lost anything…  It’s not going to stop me though.  I’ve ran 9 our of the last 14 days, and I’m going to continue running every weekday (is this bad for you?)  I’m also still on track with the 100 push-up program that Noel and some other people are doing.  So my goal is 1.5 lbs/week until I’m down to 140-150 lbs (or super sexy slim, regardless of numbers).
