Is this real? Is new TV really happening?

The following will be happening in whatever order I can convince myself to watch the stragglers of the week. There will be no coherent order whatsoever. It will also end up three times longer than originally planned because I ALWAYS do this to myself -- I start off going "nah, that's not enough for a post," so I watch one more thing, and then I decide to watch another thing while I finish writing about the previous thing, and then I think, "Oh, but now I'm just missing one part of that day's lineup; I should finish it off..." and next thing you know, we're in this mess.

I saw a movie at the theater that was not a sequel or fandom-based!

This is the first time I've done that since Away We Go in 2009. Courtesy of a flyer in the mail informing us of a nearby theater that had recently lowered its matinee pricing to $5.50 and came with a coupon for a free popcorn in their largest (refillable) size with purchase of a ticket -- it turned out both of my parents were willing to come see Contagion with me. I know, it seems like the opposite of a movie that would whet your appetite, but my dad has an iron stomach and then we got a refill afterward to take home so Mom and I could enjoy it.


The main message I took away from the story was "idiots, stop traveling so much," but overall, I was very happy with my choice to see this in theaters. I just couldn't wait on a story promising me Matt Damon as a father amidst all the ~TRAGEDY/POTENTIAL TRAGEDY~.  And now I have scads and scads of scenarios to play with!

Sooo...right now I'm attempting to watch The Amazing Race (Ethan is not worth it. SO BORED), and watching Glee during the commercials. I feel it's important to update you that in the two point five minutes I have covered of Glee, I have so far felt bored, annoyed, disdainful, and just now started screaming "UNCLEAN! UNCLEAAAAAAAAAAAN!"  I could really use an It Gets Better video message, because right now, all hope seems lost.
