Having an Office Party
Last season of Gray's Anatomy put me over the top on disgust, disappointment, etc. so we broke up. DH didn't really get a vote - I just told him I'd had it with people who never resolved their relationship issues at any level, and that I found it highly unlikely people who don't get enough sleep are constantly sneaking into supply closets for a little hanky panky. It'd be much more realistic that they'd be sneaking in there for a nap I'm pretty sure, but then that wouldn't really draw viewers. Anyhoo, we broke up, in spite of all the enticing previews of this year's show, where McDreamy asks Meredith to marry him, but alas someone else is expecting his child, possibly from one of those closet trysts that all busy heart and plastic and brain surgeons apparently have.

I think I made a good choice.

Not that it has a lot more redeeming values, but after working in offices for many years, I decided to go with the more realistic show, "The Office". We've spent the summer catching up on the first four seasons, Netflix is sending as I type the last disc which Mr. Mailman should deposit in our box today, and we're having an Office Party tonight. Our middle daughter, Leslie and SIL Jeremy (commonly called Les and Jer because in our family nobody gets more than one syllable, except Janae because that one's a bit tough to shorten unless you want her name to sound like a horse), are coming over. We're rewatching the season four finale to refresh what happened last May, then with heaping bowls of chili and plates of cornbread, followed by pumpkin pie and some other dessert involving chocolate, a fire crackling away, we're going to have the first of many weekly office parties.

I think Angela would disapprove! No streamers, no birthday cake, nothing taped to the walls, just an hour of comedy to end the day together. If today is anything like yesterday was, then I'm pretty sure a dose of The Office will be much more therapeutic than Gray's Anatomy would. Happy Fall! Happy new season of TV! And thank you God for Tivo so that I can watch The Office, while Survivor is busy recording away, saved for another night when I find it comforting to watch people argue with each other.

How about you? Have you dumped any shows lately, picked up any new ones? Or just given up on TV completely? For someone who didn't watch TV at all eight years ago, I'm tickled to pieces over the sound of football in the background, or being curled up on the couch with my knitting, watching people drive each other crazy at work, and knowing no matter what kind of day DH and I had, it could be worse!
