Notes Across the TV Landscape

I mean, by this point, we know how I operate, right?  If I don't do the whole watching-and-reviewing route, I just spend my time on less relevant TV-related things.  I don't know why I have these lofty aspirations about bettering myself.  ;) 

1. Six degrees of Survivor separation: The closest I'm ever going to get to knowing a contestant on this show is Ashley, who is from my state - and more to the point, apparently from the same hometown as my freshman-year-of-college roommate and just a year or two younger than us.  They might have even gone to the same high school.  That's pretty close, right? 

2. I didn't get a chance to watch the Emmys in all their Neil-Patrick-Harris-hosted glory (boo!), but let me say that I am split down the middle on my feelings about the winners, which is actually better than how things turned out last year.

Now for another spin through Doctor Who:

8. On a semi-related note, apparently Sarah Jane Adventures is switching it up this year and running both parts of each 2-parter in the same week.  On Thursdays and Fridays.  *throws up hands*  So now, basically every show I'm keeping on the watchlist airs on those days.  I don't know know whether to laugh or cry.  Ideally, I should probably focus on the fact that this is a blessing in disguise, as it technically means I can now concentrate on being productive all week in order to collect a big fat reward on the weekend?

9. Jim & Pam have one of those cheesy wedding websites now.  Well, I say cheesy, I actually mean OMG THIS TIME I AM SAVING EVERY SINGLE PAGE AND MAKING A SCRAPBOOK OR SOMETHING OUT OF IT; also, glee, I've been waiting a long time for this picture to turn up in a) a bigger size and b) in sharp focus.  What I like best about it is how the folks at MTT figured out it was taken in their garage, as the same chair is clearly visible at the end of "Frame Toby."  That's some impressive and possibly unintentional continuity.
