premiere week, part 3

So Rob and I happened to catch the tail-end of a Chuck rerun a few weekends ago and ended up *really* loving it… so much so that in the past week, we’ve caught up with all 4 episodes that have aired so far. It’s a show that I initially wrote off because the premise sounded a little wacky but it totally works! I even like Sarah Lancaster in this and I normally… don’t. I mean, she’s a fine actress but I will always think of her as Madison, the evil character from Everwood who ruined season 2 for me. (No, I will not get over that).

Anyway, very quick TV comments on shows I’ve watched in the past few weeks (Private Practice, Pushing Daisies, Prison Break, Grey’s, FNL, Ugly Betty, Supernatural, Smallville). I’m going to try and keep it to 1 or 2 sentences because I’m feeling lazy. :/ Come see after the jump!

premiere week, part 2

Many thanks to Alyson for teaching me how to “add friends” on MySpace. 🙂 I only created it because a friend of mine made hers private so I could no longer read it! (You know who you are, hehe). I probably won’t use it very much but if any of you have one and want to be friends, let me know in the comments. Or you can find me here. No Facebook yet, Alie — I don’t need another site to become addicted to!

I am *so* dreading work tomorrow. 🙁 I’ve been having a rough few weeks. My boss recently had surgery so she hasn’t been in the office very much. Because of this, there are buying responsibilities for a major client that have filtered down to my desk that honestly, I’m not comfortable with handling. I’m only a junior Media Buyer — I really shouldn’t be making some of these decisions. And when I turn to upper management for help, I don’t think they take my concerns seriously. It’s unbelievably frustrating. To make things worse, the planners at the agency that we work with are some of the most uptight, unfriendly people I’ve ever had the (dis)pleasure of working with. It doesn’t make for a fun work environment. I think I’m going to look for a new job after the wedding. I just have absolutely no idea what I want to do. I’m pretty sure I don’t want to stay in media. I hate the long hours and the stress. But I’ve been in this industry for 5 years… I don’t really know anything else. Maybe I can be an assistant again (this is how I got my start after college)… is that weird? You’re supposed to move up the corporate ladder, not back. I just don’t know. *sigh*

Anyway, new TV always cheers me up! (Comments on Dirty Sexy Money, Private Practice, Gossip Girl, Smallville, CSI).
