I'm not quite sure how to start my first post, so why don't I just list what I'm reading, watching, and listening to these days. All of which I highly reccommend.What I'm reading
I'm currently reading three books at the moment (ambitious aren't I?): Lost: Signs of Life
by Frank Thompson, The Water and The Blood
by Nancy Turner, and V for Vendetta
by Alan Moore. Signs of Life is an original novel based on the television series Lost. These books (there's 3 so far) are about passengers not featured on the tv show but they also interact with the main characters that are. There are some instances when I can picture the episode they're referring to. It's a fun light read and you don't necessarily have to be a fan of the show to understand it. I just picked up The Water and The Blood so I don't really know what it's about yet, but I have high hopes for it because I absolutely loved Turner's other books These Is My Words and Sarah's Quilt (both reccommended to me by Sarah). I decided to read V for Vendetta because I really enjoyed the movie. I'm not a big fan of graphic novels so it's different for me.What I'm watching
Unfortunately the following shows I'm about to mention are ending for the season and won't be back until the fall, but they're still worth mentioning and besides they're always showing repeats.
: I'm not usually into the medical type shows, but I think this one is more focused on the characters and their problems than it is on medical problems. There's still guts and gross stuff, but not as much as some of the other shows on. I love all of the characters and the story lines, it's an awesome show.
: I started watching this half way into the 2nd season, I was so into that first episode I watched that I went out and bought the first season on DVD and watched the whole thing within 2 weeks time. I'm totally addicted.
: This is probably THE funniest show on television right now, I love it. It's a different kind of humor, but it is absolutely hilarious. Steve Carrell (40 Year Old Virgin) stars as the boss.
: two words: guilty pleasure. I haven't cared about any of the winners since Kelly Clarkson and I think it's getting a little tiresome, but I can't help but watch. I love the auditions at the beginning because they're so outrageous, and then I end up getting attached to certain contestants and I just have to keep watching.
: Funniest cartoon ever. Stewie Griffin is my hero (even if he is an infant). This show is so quotable, my sister and I could have whole conversations using lines from Family Guy.Songs I'm obsessed with
