Welcome to my blog, where I share my thoughts on food, travel, pop culture...just about anything. As for the blog name, it's a Seinfeld reference. If you don't get it, then this is probably not the blog for you.

I mentioned this in my previous post, but I just have to say how much I love this show! I admit that I was not expecting much (I mean, c'mon...it's on Fox), but I tuned in since there was nothing else on after Idol. I was blown away! This is a great commentary on high school life...you've got the jocks, the geeks, the cheerleaders (cherrios, as they are called on the show), and then the glee kids (as the cheer coach describes all the different cliques as parts of a house, the glee kids are "sub-basement"). But the Spanish teacher takes over glee club and attempts to meld these worlds together. How he does it is hilarious and a bit sinister. And Jane Lynch plays the cheer coach/gym teacher - enough said there. She is amazing and her comedic timing is flawless. If you have no idea who she is, watch Best in Show - one of my all-time favorite movies. After watching the kids belt out a rousing rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey at the end of the show, I was disappointed to find out that I would have to wait until fall to see another episode. But I quickly recovered after discovering that I could download the pilot episode for free on itunes. If you want to watch it, go to http://www.fox.com/glee/, sit back, and enjoy! I call this show "The High School Musical for the Rest of Us"!

I am such a bad blogger

Hey ya'll. So yeah...it's been a while. I have had every intention of blogging many times over the past few months, but I failed. I blame it on my addiction to two things: TV shows and the Twilight Saga :)
Yes, I am hopelessly addicted to Edward, Bella, the Cullen clan...it is my new obsession. If you haven't read this series, you must. I read all 4 books in exactly 1 week. I thought everyone was crazy for liking this stuff. I also thought it was for teens, so I refused to even look at the books. My friend suggested I watch the movie, and if I liked it I should read the books. Well, I settled in to watch it, very skeptical, already having a negative opinion before the opening credits. Then, I was suddenly swept up into the Twilight zone. It was amazing. Since then, I have read all the books, blogs, tweets, fan pages...you name it. I am obsessed. I feel like a teenage girl again, but so what. I am anxiously awaiting 11-20-09 when the next movie, New Moon, opens in theatres. Now I know what all those crazy sci-fi people feel when they are willing to camp out in a movie line just to get tickets to the first show :) Oh, and I have a great group of friends who are willing to go with me - they are just as obsessed as I am!
As for TV shows, most of my shows have ended their seasons. Here are some of my old and new favorites:
  1. The Office
  2. Parks and Recreation
  3. 30 Rock
  4. Real Housewives (of OC, NYC, and NJ)
  5. Glee - seriously, I cannot wait for this one...the pilot episode was amazing!
  6. Chuck
  7. American Idol - thank God Kris won!
