White & Nerdy

After reading my Flist, it seems to me that once again we're getting rooked out of a good television series because we don't have HBO (or Showtime). Stupid pay stations.

They finally have a pair of new sitcoms on that aren't painfully stupid and too annoying to watch: How I Met Your Mother backed by The Class. I love it when I laugh out loud during a sitcom - and with it, not at it.

I spent five minutes on the phone with my dentist's office trying to get them to understand that a midday appointment would not be convenient because their office is at Glendale and 7th Street, and I work in Tempe. Finally got them to give me another 8:30 appointment, one day later. Sheesh. The main irritant about their office is 7th Street has a suicide lane, and making a left turn in the morning hours is, indeed, suicide.

I just hate it when I forget I pre-ordered something from Amazon and come home to a "Your Amazon Order Has Shipped!" and I think, "Uh oh..." There was a big charge I should have written down so I'd be expecting it. I even knew when it was supposed to be released. In any case, yay, second season of Doctor Who, with yummy Doctor Ten goodness. Just a little broker than expected until Friday.

The pipes do not appear to be frozen this morning - at least, there was running water in the kitchen and the bathroom, anyway.

"Suicide lane" is such a great phrase (although unpleasant reality)...

And hurrah for unfrozen pipes!

And they're ALWAYS inconvenient - I don't travel up and down 7th St./Ave. too often, but whenever I do, it's always at the time I can't turn the way I need to go!

I'm glad your pipes survived. And...I'm guessing you mean Rome? You can rent S1 on DVD, and people were finding early downloads of the S2 premiere, so I bet you'd be able to see it if you hunted around a bit. (It's well worth the effort, btw.)

Yes, indeed, Rome. I probably will rent it, although we recently stalled on our NetFlix rentals. I need to get back in gear.
