A Moment of Silence for Grey’s Anatomy

19 Oct

Hi 🙂

Let’s talk about something impressive. Yep, it’s that time again: time for me to brag.

A few weeks ago I made the mistake of watching the Grey’s Anatomy season premiere with Michael… At various points during the show, he let me know just how pitiful he thought this particular choice in television was.

I got to thinking about it and I realized (begrudgingly) that… he’s probably right. As much as I love Grey’s (and trust me, I love Grey’s. A lot. To the point where I have quite literally seen every episode at least twice…), it just takes up time that I could be using productively.

I ♥(ed) Grey’s

I decided to quit cold turkey.

I allotted myself one more episode, but after that? Completely done. Fooorrrevur. I’m happy to report that since October 4, I haven’t watched an episode or even looked anything about it up on wikipedia.

You have my permission to be impressed 🙂 I certainly have been feeling quite proud lately.

Just in case you were wondering what I’ve been doing with my extra hour each week, that’s it. Not watching Grey’s. The best part? I don’t even miss it! It was getting pretty lame anyway, so it wasn’t a true test of my resolve, but I’m pretty proud of myself anyway.

Aside from ditching my favorite guilty pleasure, I have been waaay too consumed by election news. Ugh, it’s getting a little ridiculous. I can’t wait until November 7 when the stress and anticipation are over… I guess I’ve just replaced Grey’s with election fever. You know what they say… one addiction to another. Oh well.

Election 2012

Who will it be!?
Seriously. Who is going to win? I’m going nuts over here.

Is everyone registered to vote? So important! I love that I have the opportunity to take part in the selection of the commander-in-chief. Democracy rocks.

Cooooookie Monster

I could easily eat every last cookie on earth if left to my own devices.

Other things I’ve been doing? Baking cookies at Michael’s request. And just in case you are curious if I should be eating these things (as per my pregnancy), you should probably know that little man absolutely adores them. I made sure to eat an extra so we both got one 🙂 It’s only fair.

And. True story, these really are the best chocolate chip cookies on earth. I’m generally suspicious of people who claim their chocolate chip cookies are the best (none seem to measure up to the claims), but I’m fine with ascribing the superlative in this case because the recipe comes from Crisco.com, not my own brain (and as per such, they are incredibly–even embarrassingly–bad for you). Make and eat with caution.

But. Like I said… they’re the best on earth, so I really can’t stop you (or myself, it seems).

Ps: RECIPE-FEST 2012 coming tomorrow (No, it’s not all on one day because I procrastinated cooking all week, why do you ask?). Errabody get excited!
