I don't get to watch much TV, but when I do, I like to watch NBC's The Office. I like Big Love too, but it's not on (at least that I know of). Those are really the only shows I turn the world off and watch. Thank goodness for DVR!! I also like to watch FoodNetwork (mainly Semi-homemade with Sandra Lee). Tori and Dean is very good (I've only seen 2 episodes), but I wonder what is up with Dean. He's too perfect, sweet, caring, etc. Wonder if he has classes for regular men?! HA!

Yes--a seminar on "Being Dean"--that would yield some interesting results!

We don't have a DVR -- maybe this is good, maybe bad, but we just haven't gone down that road yet. I could have really used one, though, when T. was a baby and waking up every 45 minutes during my favorite shows to nurse!

Ah, tv. What HAVE I been watching? Uh, old movies on TVO (the Ontario public tv channel) on Saturday nights. Mythbusters, whenever my husband and/or son get hold of the remote, and endless amounts of specials on the Duggars, since we're obsessed with them. I wish we lived NEXT DOOR. I wish Michelle Duggar was my BEST FRIEND! And Fairly Odd Parents. We seem to watch a lot of that... oh, and Daily Planet, a Canadian science show.

I just saw a special on the Duggars and I couldn't get past that amazing organizational calendar/system they have--you know the one with all those post-its? I don't know how she gets those things to work? And those kids--do they ever misbehave?

I loved that Tori and Dean show, my Hubs was excited too, that it's over! I even cried at that show! (Boy did I feel a little silly, but man I always cry at babies being born).

We are watching the dem convention this week. Someone's yelling on the t.v. right now.

I watch The Hills, which is mindless and a little boring. But I still watch it. And Project Runway, I really, really like Project Runway. Beyond that, I'm not much help.

We dipped in and out of the convention, too, but I find it hard to watch it while doing work, which is what I often try and do to maximize time in the evenings! I get too caught up in the speeches...
