TV

OK, winter is officially here. How do I know this? no, it's not the flurries of snow this morning, although that was a clue. No, it was the cold. At some point over the weekend, the wind got that particular cold that wasn't there last week, when it was chilly, but not terrible. This, this is the winter chill. Soon I'll have to stop wearing dress pants to work (just not warm enough,) and switch to jeans. Which is annoying, as recently, I discovered a pair of my jeans went missing. Yes, this has happened before. No, I don't know how it happens. I mean, I think I'd notice not bringing home pants I wore somewhere. But I digress.

Tragically, no Pushing Daisies tonight. Apparently ABC thinks it's more important to show Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. Thanks guys.

And man, it just occurred to me that once next week's Pushing Daisies is done, and Dexter is over, I'm out of new TV shows for... a while.

In unrelated news, we finally saw Live Free or Die Hard, and it was better than it had any right to be.
