The return of scripted TV and what I'm reading this week
I'm still loving the new premieres of stuff and the opportunity to give new scripted shows a go! Can I say we're thrilled with the quality of non-reality TV making a comeback? We gave Stalker a peep and while it was decent, I don't think we'll be adding it to the DVR. Subject matter and predictability. I also didn't care for the emphasis on the dude asking the chick "why do you dress sexy if you don't want people to look at you?" not once but twice. Skeeved me out and I checked out. It was the return of Criminal Minds with a new cast addition in Jennifer Love Hewitt. While I'm partial to Jeanne Tripplehorn, I didn't think she did bad. I don't know why the internet got their undies in a knot over her. I am so looking forward to American Horror Story: Freakshow but not the ensuing nightmares. I'm sad it'll be Jessica Lange's last season. I'm also sad my cul de sac crew at Cougar Town are filming their final season but I think it's time to end it. The past two seasons have been a little...reachy. The Mr will be thrilled he doesn't have to have it on in the background anymore. :-P
But enough of my babbling, let's get to...

Oh yeah and for those bashing it saying what kind of dog owner leaves his dog home overnight? Would you prefer he drive home drunk and kill others if he's physically unable to call a cab because he's passed out and NEVER make it home to the dog? Good Lord, people will find any way they can to crap all over something with a positive message!)
Weights Before Cardio? (Interesting findings but I will probably always be a cardio before weights girl)

It's supposed to be nice and cool/borderline cold this weekend and I'm so ready to bust out my touristy Traverse City hoodie, some fuzzy socks and the like. Is it too early for Christmas music? TOO BAD! I'm already listening to it!

We've got much to do this weekend and a heads up, while I'll still be posting regularly over the next few weeks, comments back may be hit and miss so don't worry, I ain't mad-atcha, just trying to spin many plates in the air. Heck I don't even know if anyone checks back here except one or two of ya's to see if I say anything back.
So how about you? What's on your weekend agenda? You got some proverbial plates spinning as well?
