you would have more.

The Series itself is different. We'll need both in top form to win, home field advantage or no.
I'm not convinced they're are different quiz results:

Before next week, Lady Vader may be wondering what I thought of Charmed so here it is: I can't say it sucked but I still stand by my assertion they should have stopped at season six. I'm unclear exactly why they didn't just have the real Wyatt scare the demons since, well, he could. I suppose he's too young. How dare they actually follow real time in the child's growth. No other show does. And why are they all cousins now? Are they the "Witches of Hazard"? Oh well.

Also: my uncle, the father of the cousin I'm going to see, had a heart attack this past week. No one wants me to cancel and he did come home today but things probably won't be as sunny as I first thought.
In addition to these complications and everything else going on, I find out this afternoon that another aunt and uncle are splitting up and my aunt has moved out. It's an ugly situation.
Here's a lighter note to end on:

I also saw the series premiere of Invasion which bares quite the resemblance to a novel of the same name by Robin Cook but the details are so different that I don't believe it's actually based on the that book. It's not too bad so I'll probably watch it more. Oh, and just so you know, caring optional, I didn't see Surface because it looked way too lame. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
In other news, Wednesday, I was contacted by a woman, who turned out to be really hot btw, from an employment agency representing a payroll company. They saw my resume posted online. Today, I went to their office downtown to fill out the paperwork, watch a video on work safety and take some computerized tests on data entry, Excel and Word. She'll give the information to this company, which is also downtown, and they may or may not call me for an interview. It's 20 hours a week. Apparently, I get to choose which three, full, days I want to come in. Not too bad. The annoying part is I have to submit my time card info myself during the probationary period. The last time I went through an employment agency, the company did it for me...

So last night I watched the Emmys. I love the fact Boston Legal and Lost were acknowledged. Those are two very good shows, however, while I haven't given it much thought in the past, Jennifer Garner should have gotten Best Actress this year for many reasons such as Medium sucks and Jennifer is mentally "there" during interviews. I realize those aren't voting criteria but maybe they should be.
Also, the article I read this morning criticized Ellen for hanging out back stage instead of just telling a joke. Personally, I found that refreshing and still funny. If she had told a joke, they'd criticize her for that too.
Finally, my biggest criticism of the broadcast was the blatant grandstanding of Viacom. The "Emmy Idol" segement contained themes to all Viacom shows with some mismatched actors doing it just because they're employed by them. Case in point, Kristen Bell had no business doing the theme from Fame. They just wanted to hype her UPN show. They even showed VP Les Moonves in the audience but I didn't see any other TV exec... I'm not saying it's never been done before but it seemed quite excessive this year.
Speaking of Viacom owned shows, I saw the premiere of Threshold on Friday. The show can best be described as a bad episode of Star Trek which is better than good episodes of many shows and not really surprising either since the second half was written by Brannon Braga, the guy who killed that franchise. Interestingly, to me though probably not to anyone else, three other producers from Enterprise (Actually, one started on Voyager and another has been with the franchise longer than Braga) are also working on the show with Brent Spiner as part of the cast.
Finally, the new season of Justice League began this weekend so I am very happy.

On the other hand, I was very disappointed by Bones. It seemed they were hyping Brennan to be a House-like character but really she's just a stereotypical MIT-type nerd. She's a female Gil Grissom with martial arts skills and a bit more of a stubborn streak. If you're going to just do another CSI give me some Who, damn it! I think the show needs Angel...
A random observation to close: Should the Backstreet Boys really have named their fake metal band Sphyncter when a common name for them is the Backdoor Boys? Do they really want to call attention to that part of their anatomy?

find your inner PIE @ stvlive.com
So just to keep you readers informed, I am indeed headed down to Florida to visit my cousin over Columbus Day weekend. I'm looking forward to it and it seems she is as well so that's good... My confirmation e-mail from the airline took more than a day to arrive so I, being used those things happening instantaneously, was a bit worried last night.
If I posted yesterday, I may have pointed out that the trend now with my matches is to put me on hold but one who did that finally just closed it today so I guess I won't discuss this much further except to say it's nice to know some of them are at least putting some thought and reflection into it and not making rash decisions.
Another trend seems to be that many of the matches, more than half, that seem most interested in me are two to six years older which I think is interesting. In many ways, I'm mature for my age but am admittedly immature in others so we'll have to see.

discover what candy you are @ quiz me
I don't really have anything worth commenting on to say but I'm taking this opportunity to say two things. I discovered yesterday that Smallville and Alias are premiering the same day. I knew that they would be in the same time slot but I didn't hear about the premiere dates or at least didn't pay attention which I know may surprise one or two of my readers. I was just going to watch the one that started first and then tape the other one then re-evaluate during repeats. Now, except for the repeat thing, I can't go for that method. Remember when TV watching wasn't complicated?
The second thing I want to relate is that I'm thinking of going down to visit my cousin in Florida sometime soon. I still need to work out the details but I really need to get out of here. I'll keep you posted.

So I read in the paper today that Jeri Ryan is joining the cast of The OC. I didn't know this previously and, as a Star Trek fan, this pisses me off. I haven't found a good website on my favorite franchise in quite some time. This must be rectified!
Did anyone read the obituary of Bob Denver in the paper this morning? They took a huge section to describe the cast of Gilligan's Island. If he, Dawn Wells and whoever else is still alive died in a freak accident, maybe I could see them going in that direction. Yes, the show needed to be mentioned in some detail but do people reading this really need to know Alan Hale played The Skipper especially when he wasn't quoted in the article? No. They should have spent some time discussing Denver's addiction to drugs. That would have been much more pertinent to the article.

Sunday, we went up to OOB, or Old Orchard Beach, ME for those readers not in the know. I went into the men's room of the restaurant where we had dinner that night and discovered how some patrons got around the "no smoking" policy. I wonder why I've never encountered that ingenuity before...
We went up mainly to see my Bosnian "sister," F and her family, who live in the area, and say good-bye. After a trip to Bosnia they'll be moving to Detroit. It's a long story why they're moving but this really was our last chance to see them before they left so we took it. Her daughter, who's almost three gave me a big hug despite the fact she couldn't possibly know me that well and also followed me into the bathroom. It was weird but it's documented fact that babies and cats love me...

|Doctor Unheimlich has diagnosed me with|
|Symptoms:||extreme dehydration, mild levitation, squeaky voice|
|Cure:||cryogenic freezing until science catches up|
Get this, I finally heard from one of my matches the other day and she reveals she's a Yankees fan. ::Shrugs:: If it doesn't bother her, I'm ok with it but it'll still make things interesting.
She is one of only five matches from CT that have given me the time of day out of like 80. This is when all they really know about me is what I look like and how tall I am, some of my interests and some things about my personality. Why is this state so stuck up?
