Wow.....Just Wow....

Just a quick update for those of you who actually read this:
Last night's episode of Bones was the most evocative episode of TV I have ever seen. I was literally blown away. Ask my roommates, I couldn't stop talking about it. Which is funny, considering that when it was over, I literally had no words.
Without going into any details, I'll just say that it pinpointed the painful feelings associated with the situation of many single people. "Why don't [they] want what I'm offering?" It was so poignant, and I found myself in tears. Who hasn't felt that? Who hasn't wished that they could find someone who wanted what we offer, all of us, the good and the bad, the whole package, flaws, quirks, and all? Who hasn't been disappointed by a lack of interest or a relationship that wasn't what it appeared or a person who was built up to perfection in our minds only to wake up and find that we never knew them at all? Who hasn't wanted, if just for one day or night, to forget it all and not feel anything? And it led me to ask myself this question: how many amazing people, such as this character [who ANY woman should want to be with if they have any brains or a heart at all], are sitting alone this weekend and wondering those very same things?
It examined the human heart with more pinpoint accuracy than I ever expected it to. I know I'm being overly analytical and sentimental and it's probably ridiculous and pathetic on far too many levels for comfort, but it really struck me. I don't think it'll be leaving my mind anytime soon, either. So a MAJOR shout out to the creator of Bones, Hart Hanson, to the writers, the producers, and, most especially, to David Boreanaz for the most amazing 15 minutes of TV I have ever seen. Truly a beautiful and touching performance.
Happy Valentine's Day to you all, lovers and loners alike.

If I were an Actress......

Hey y'all....
So I know I've been remarkably absent since my last post. This is why I don't make resolutions. Life gets in my way. Anyways, I'm doing well and I promise to update you if anything major happens in my life. Promise promise.
Anywho, my sister-in-law started a new blog and she recently talked about a show called Inside the Actor's Stuido. WHY DIDN'T I KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE???????? It is TOTALLY right up my alley. I would have been watching this show all the time!!!! I guess it doesn't really matter, since I know now and I have already programmed my parents' DVR to record it. Should be fun!
But onto my point: If I were on this show [when I'm a famous actress], these would be my answers top the questions at the end.

1. What is your favorite word? Hullabaloo. Isn't it just a great word?
2. What is your least favorite word? Can't. I hate that word so much.
3. What turns you on? Cheesecake.
4. What turns you off? Arrogance.
5. What sound or noise do you love? The sound of a spoon scraping against a plastic bowl. It means somethign yummy is being created, and I will inevitably ask "Whatcha makin'?" in the hopes that I will get some.
6. What sound or noise do you hate? Radio static. ICK!
7. What is your favorite curse word? [peers around to make sure no one will think less of her for having one] I personally think that h-e-double hockeysticks is a funny word as an expletive. But if I had a swaering problem, I imagine that I would say the moderate expletive version of "darn it" often. Also, nothing is funnier than hearing your grandma swear. It makes me giggle no matter what she says.
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I think if I could go back to school and do it all over again [which I have contemplated], I would like to be a criminal investigator. I'd love to solve puzzles and catch bad guys. But that's my fantasy. In reality, I think I'd make a decent psychologist. I'd like to help people help themselves.
9. What profession would you not like to do? Anything political. Yelch.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? " was the food?" =)

In other news, It's BONES DAY!!!!! I'm slightly obsessed. Tonight's episode is going to be AMAZING!!!! That or it is going to make me severely depressed. Either way, I'm prepared with popcorn and a big bag of peanut M&Ms. Hopefully I'll be floating on Cloud 9 tomorrow, but if I'm not, I trust that one of you will help me out of my depression induced chocolate coma.
Thanks, friends. Enjoy the day. Spring is coming......I hope.....
