Jumpity jumpity jumpity!

*leaps about with hope*  Ausiello says ABC is interested in Ghost Whisperer, for real!  More so than Old Christine!  Oh sweet Jesus, network, I would love you forever and maybe even stop mocking your skankiness & treating you like a joke for a while. 

In other news, I have slightly calmed down from yesterday enough to speak in a rational manner about the rest of the upfronts news:

On a random note, Idol results: in which I am continually baffled that for the second year in a row, two of my three favorites made it to the final 3, for another season in which I really only watched for about six weeks.

P.S. IMPORTANT QUESTION!  The rigid and unflinching rules of the Music Of... List state that no song I enjoyed prior to 2007, regardless of whether or not I experience a resurgence of falling in love with it, will be admitted.  It also states that cover versions will be permitted, typically because they are for a song whose original version I either disliked or was merely neutral about, and sound quite different.  But I don't know what to do about the likes of Glee's "Jessie's Girl" and "The Boy is Mine," which sound exceptionally similar to the original versions that I adore.

Writer's Block: BFFs

If you had to pick a character from your favorite TV show back in middle school to be your best friend today, who would you choose, and why? Have you outgrown some of the characters you loved when you were an early adolescent?



At first I thought, "did I even watch TV in middle school?" After digging deep into the recesses of my brain, I realized that by 8th grade there probably were half a dozen shows I liked, but I still didn't know what I'd loved enough to call it my favorite. Maybe X-Files?  Scully was cool?  I suppose technically I was most obsessed with Matt on Digimon, but that's not the answer I want to gi...and then I remembered something wonderful: ZOOM!

This little PBS series lit up my life in 7th and 8th grade. Mostly 7th, because the first year's cast was magical, but at least my two favorites stayed on for year two. I thought Alisa was the coolest person ever, and Zoe was a close second. I stand by those decisions so much that I just looked them up on IMDB, only to discover that neither pursued an acting career, so I am forced to respect them as real people rather than celebrities I can virtually stalk. But they did both graduate from NYU, which is cool.

And yes, clearly they are not actually "characters" so I am not answering the question this Writer's Block asked, but it sent me on a wonderful nostalgia trip all afternoon, so THAT'S WHERE WE'RE GOING.

Strangest finales ever.

I spent the whole evening on NBC, and in a curiously open-minded mood.  It paid off.

Psych!  I promptly switched off the TV and left to go eat dinner.  Not in a million years, Poehler.  Never again, not for a nanosecond.

The Office, "The Whistleblower"
Well, that was kind of a weird downer, wasn't it?
