I have an addiction. It's called TV. And it could be chocolate, too.

It's officially a mom and daughter weekend. We are now, finally, in McKinney. We're staying at her old college roommate's house. Isn't that cool that they are still friends? Laura--make sure and bring Riley to my house in 25 years!

We're headed into Canton tomorrow. I brought my camera and hopefully I'll remember to take some pics and document the experience. I realize some of you aren't sure what Canton is....neither do I! I just know it's supposed to be mind-boggling. Maybe I'll find a great flea-market find I can't live without.

Now, I have to take a few minutes and talk TV. I've tried to stay away from the subject for a while, as I didn't want to turn into a TV blogger (thought I'm considering it).

Gilmore Girls
I may be the last person on the planet watching this show....but I LOVE it. And they just announced it's not coming back next season and that makes me pretty sad. I began watching this in the dorms at OU, and really related with the whole mother-daughter relationship. I am so sad to see it go. But Rory is graduating and getting proposed to, so it should be good.

Is this not the best show on TV? Seriously? It gets better and better every week (with the whole Paolo and Nikki episode aside....thought the whole burying alive thing was pretty cool). I got chills this past week as all the conspiracy theories out there about the show began to come to fruition. Purgatory, anyone? It's looking like it....

Grey's Anatomy
It was only the worst show I've seen in a while. I spent all week building up to a TWO-HOUR episode. I thought "two hours of Burke and Christina, Meredith and McDreamy, George and Izzy? What could be better?". Too bad it wasn't about them! What a sham. I knew they were going to introduce Addison's new show, but I didn't know it was going to take the full two hours. Now I'm pretty sure I won't like the spin-off, even though Taye Diggs (Yum!) is in it, simply because I wasn't prepared to like it this week. Quite a disappointment. Or maybe I was just disappointed because it was yet another social engagement centered around TV that John refused to attend. We've got to get him caught up on Lost, and Grey's.

Brothers and Sisters
I have to admit it....I'm a Calista Flockhart fan. I am. I LOVED "Ally McBeal" and I've liked her ever since. And of course, Sally Field is always delightful. This show is great. All the characters seem real and genuine, and the chemistry on that show is awesome. It helps that brat-packer Rob Lowe is on there, too! It's on Sundays, so check it out if you need a new show to get into!

If Dr. Foreman leaves the show, I'm not sure it can go on. Each person at that show is so integral to making it the perfect mix of sarcasm and medical drama. If it came down to a choice between Grey's and House for my medical drama of choice....I'm not so sure I would choose Grey's. House is that good.

Ok....I'll stop boring you for now. I just had to get all that off my chest! I could seriously talk "Lost" every single day, it's so involving.

I'm off to bed now. Have to get my rest for the bargain-hunting escapade. Also, my boss is in of course everything is blowing up in offices around the country! So, I will have to be working some this weekend as well. Thank goodness for wireless!
