Day 10 of no program television is now upon us. Things are going well, besides not being able to check out some high quality prime-time shows (all of Lindsay's shows, plus MLB baseball, SportsCenter, American Pickers, Pawn Stars to name a few).
Netflix has come in handy as of late, movies come and go on about a three day schedule. We watched Step Brothers the other night, hilarious freaking movie. Lindsay's first viewing, my second. Still entertaining. Will Ferrell has to be one of the funniest actors alive. Hands down. Then we sent away for Up In The Air. George Clooney is awesome in that one, and I'm not generally a huge fan. But the premise was great, it was funny, and it had won awards out the ass. I say those awards were well deserved. Two nights ago, Jesse came over for dinner with me, Linds, and Nathan because Julia was in St. Maarten with her sister. We ate, and watched JUNO. Same director (Jason Reitman) as Up In The Air, and just as funny if not funnier. The language is hilarious, the words they use. If you haven't seen JUNO, go see it. It also won plenty of awards from the press and media. Well deserved. Just because DirecTV sucks the big one doesn't mean they can damper my television viewing experience. I still got DVD's sucker!!
On the baseball, the Yankees are once again tied with the Rays for first place in the AL East. Both teams share the best record in baseball (78-48) but the Red Sox are still hovering, only six games back.
Lindsay kicked my ass at Scrabble last night, 296-216. What an absolute drubbing it was. I was out of it from my third turn. I had seven consecutive turns where I had at least 5 vowels on my rack. Needless to say, 1-point letters when your down 50 points are useless.
It's getting muggy in the office, per usual. I share my office with the entire student-athlete population, so the traffic is high and some of the odors are pretty horrific. Gonna take a stroll and take care of some things on campus. Meeting with broker today - hope things work out for this new place.
