Basking in the sweet glow of electricity

So like, I have power. I've had it since *last* Friday, actually, but I'm just now getting around to posting. Hey, I had a lot of technology to catch up with, what with missing a week of news, emails, LJ, and television. I'm still trying to get through it all.

A lot of the city is still without power, however. Including my dad's place. And a lot of the inner city. And when I say inner city, I don't just mean the poor neighborhoods--the old rich neighborhoods are, if anything, worse off because they've got more trees. Of course, most of the rich folks can afford generators or extended stays at the Four Seasons, so they're not so bad off. I keep trying to talk my dad into coming over here until his power comes back, but he keeps talking about it and then putting it off.

In other news, we leave for London in exactly two weeks and one day! I am so psyched, and I've been in a frenzy of internet shopping looking for the perfect jacket, the perfect day bag, the perfect rain hat and the perfect shoes. Oh, and the perfect outfit to wear to Hamlet. Living in the tropics I have exactly zero pairs of closed toe non-casual shoes. I just don't go out that often, and when I do it's usually open-toed sandal weather. That's why shoe and skirt shopping at the mall is on the agenda tonight.

So despite the fact that our cable has been going in and out on an almost daily basis since we got it back on Monday, I did manage to see The Office last night. Which was totally awesome. You all know why.

Is it me, or does all the new TV suck? True Blood? Sucks. Sons of Anarchy? Sucks. All those lame new sitcoms? Suck. Fringe? Really sucks. The Mentalist? Sucks. Thank god there were so many good new shows last season that are coming back. I'm dying for more Life, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money and Chuck. Also, I want my 30 Rock and I want it now!

I'm very much behind on watching stuff, but let me know if there's anything your Tivo missed catching because of power/cable problems that you might want me to burn down to DVD for ya.

I cannot WAIT for Dirty Sexy Money to come back!! That was the main show that I was pissed about losing.... amazing stuff, great cast. I'm excited!

Having power is awesome!

The only new shows I'm watching are Fringe and Privileged, and of the two, Privileged is far more enjoyable. But yeah, the new TV this year is nothing compared to last year.
