Where to start. Well, IM, my 2 1/2 year old kept me up all night again last night. He doesn’t sleep through the night, which is really enjoyable ;( Anyway, it gave me a chance to watch The Winner, a new show I taped because I now feel I must see most of the new shows and it has Rob Corddry from The Daily Show in it. I don’t get it.
Apparently the networks have an unlimited supply of money with which to start totally random shows and see if they take off. The premise, I think, of this show, is “part Wonder Years, part Married with Children”, which I didn’t get and/or agree with. Rob Corddry plays a stunted 32 year old (if he’s 32, I feel really bad for him, because he looks much older) who is supported by his parents and has a friend with a 12 (?) year old that he has a connection with. In this episode, the mom asks Rob’s character to take her son to Albany for a spelling bee, and the two bond on their immaturity. I’m too old for this s***.
I also watched The Black Donnellys last week, and was unimpressed. New shows up for me this week are The Riches, Raines and October something. I’ll watch them, but I’m not expecting much. First off I’m not a fan of Minnie Driver, but also how can they compare to The Office, Dirt and Friday Night Lights? We’ll see.
I’ve been working slowly on my Sock-ret Pal sock 2. I’m also doing some destashing, going down approximately 15 skeins of yarn this week, but then again I’m expecting maybe 6 back, but we’ll see. At least it gets me to go through my stash.
Here’s some I’m keeping:
1 skein of some mystery fiber by Ellen’s Half Pint Farms in my favorite “Eclipse” colorway. Skeins accounted for: 96.
