It's Friday and I woke up with a horrible headache, so I just took some Motrin and I drank a large coffee from Tim Hortons very fast. Needless to say, I am feeling a combination of awake/jittery/snarky/wooooo.
So, why not write a new blog post?
I'm going to start this off with some thoughts on last nights Greys Anatomy. SPOILER ALERT if you haven't watched it yet. Let me preface my thoughts by explaining to you all, that I pretty much have a love/hate relationship with this show now. Where it once was full of fantastic storylines and fun, it now has just mere moments of brilliance in each episode. I will usually watch an entire episode and complain about 95% of it. I feel like it is a shadow of its former self and all they do now is steal storylines from other great shows or just recycle ones from their earlier years. Or I could just still be bitter from the fact that Shonda Rhimes killed off my two most favorite characters (Lexi and Sloan) at the end of last season and beginning of this year. Yeah, I'll just admit it. I'm still bitter but I don't think that has anything to do with the fact that last night's season 9 finale was weak. It was predictable and frustrating. Meredith almost died. Again. There was a catastrophic bus that ended up flipping over, catching on fire and exploding. In a torrential downpour. People broke up. Again. Someone died. I think. I suppose that person could still be alive, though it would be absolutely absurd if they were.
Anyway, here are some random thoughts I thought while watching the episode:
-The Bailey storyline is dumb. She's one of the strongest characters on the show. Get your act together, lady.
- Callie totally deserved to get yelled at by Arizona. I was waiting for it to happen all season. She wasn't on the plane last year and all season long she has acted like she was a victim. I'm not saying she deserved to be cheated on but you know, whatever.
- Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital has to be one of the worst constructed buildings on the planet. All that water in the basement? Really?
-Speaking of, whoever did their electrical wiring was an idiot.
-Speaking of, what sane person (let alone a SURGEON) would go into a room with ankle deep water and try to fix an electrical unit?!?!
-A bus crash in front of the hospital? Really? Not only did that bus slide and crash but IT FLIPPED IN THE AIR and landed on it's side, only to ignite and later explode IN A TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR. It was like they finished the episode, watched it and said "ehh, just throw a bus crash in there for some dramatic effect." Dumb.
-Meredith telling that intern boy how to fix her bleeding spleen? Stop it.
-That poor girl is going to have the worst scars ever on her stomach from her C-section and her bleeding spleen surgery.
-Please be done with the Owen/Cristina baby drama. I'm so over it.
-I really liked the Alex/Izzie 2.0 (Jo) stuff.
-No spare batteries in that entire hospital, eh? Riiiiiiight.
I think that's all my thoughts on that for now. I am sure I will think of more as I keep processing how frustrating it was to watch.
The Vampire Diaries season finale was last night as well. SPOILER ALERT for those who haven't watched that yet. It's no secret that I have been frustrated with this season. Elena was either whining and crying hysterically or being vindictive and mean. There was never a happy medium. I hated the cure storyline. I hated Shane and Silas and I hated the Vampire Hunters. Something just seemed off all season long and that made me sad and disappointed. I realized last night what was missing. ALARIC. Good God, was I happy to have him back and doubly sad when he had to go away again. Matt Davis is so fantastic as that character and the friendship between him and Damon is so believable and wonderful. If they can bring Jeremy back, they can bring back Ric too, right?? Please?!?! After 4 seasons, I finally got my wish and Bonnie got dead. I'm ok with it. Stefan has a doppelganger now... who is Silas? Alrighty. Also, real Stefan is in a safe buried at the bottom of a lake... you know, a la' Angel Season 3. After fighting with Katherine (in a battle reminiscent of the Season 4 Alias episode where Sydney Bristow dressed in white fought Sydney Bristow dressed in black), Jeff and I laughed out loud when Elena fed her the cure. Well played, VD writers. Well played indeed. Also, Elena truly loves Damon. I'm cool with that finally. Also too, Klaus is so handsome. Saving Caroline and telling her that his graduation present to her was allowing Tyler (snoooore) to come back to Mystic Falls and then telling her that he (Klaus) would be her last love. SIGH. Oh, and Rebekah and Mundane Matt are going on a road trip together. Cool? So that's that. We'll see how next season goes without Klaus and Rebekah. I'm nervous for both VD and the first season of The Originals. I'm just not sure how the storylines will hold up but I will keep an open mind.
We still have a lot of other finales DVR'd that we need to watch. Bones, Castle, The Office. I'm worried about watching The Office though because it's going to make me cry. Oh! The New Girl finale was good even if TaySwift had an extremely unnecessary cameo. I love Nick and Jess. I LOVE them.
Some thoughts that I have been thinking as of late:
-I've noticed that my iphone is making me lazy. You know, because of the auto correct, which I hated when I first got this phone but now I kind of love it. Now, whenever I am typing an email (or a blog post), I just expect my mistakes to be corrected without me having to do anything. It doesn't work that way, dummy. Backspacing and making corrections takes so much time, you guys.
-I would like it if people would stop asking celebrities for retweets on the Twitter. It makes you look needy. Also, what is so fun about a celebrity retweeting your tweet that says "if you don't retweet me, my life will be ruined forever!" It's lame, guys.
-I have been reading The Beautiful Creatures series. I have about 100 pages to go in the 3rd book, Beautiful Chaos. It's pretty good. There are lots of things that bug me about it but they are small and overall, I enjoy the story so I will continue on with it.
-I will start the last Sookie book, Dead Ever After this weekend probably.
-You know what's delicious? Mangos. Mangos are really, really delicious.
-You know what makes me sad? Iced coffee with little to no ice. Or when you order an iced coffee and they give you iced tea instead and you don't realize it until you are halfway done with it.
- Head sunburns are the worst. Not only do they itch and peel, they look stupid. And they make people ask you questions like "did your head get sunburned??" Nope. I just dyed my scalp that trendy new "beat red" color.
-I really love it the way C's freckles come out in the sun. It adds to his already out of control cuteness.
-Sneezing while putting on makeup is the worst.
-Little Caesars commercials are terrible. They make me angry with how awful they are.
-Miley Cyrus was named one of the most sexy ladies for some magazine. Is this true? Do people honestly find that girl hot? That completely skeeves me out.
-Why is it (as with parking lots) that if there is a bathroom with 10 empty stalls, and I am in one of them, someone will always, always, always come in and pick the stall right next to me. Why do you want to pee next to me? If I go into a bathroom and there is only one person in there, I always pick the stall farthest away from that person. It just seems like the rational thing to do.
-Don't you love it when you find an onion ring mixed in with your fries? It's like a happy little treat.
-Getting a foot cramp while driving is horrible.
- Has anyone ever actually bought one of those suggested gifts on Facebook? If so, I want to know.
-My sister and I are walking in the Susan G. Komen "Race For The Cure" tomorrow. I would run but you know... I don't run.
-The Motor City ComicCon is this weekend. Lots of fun people are going to be there, including: Norman Reedus, Mickey Dolenz, Shawn Ashmore, Nicholas Brendan and tons more. Sunday is kids day and they get in free with the purchase of an adult ticket. C is real excited about it.
What will you be doing this weekend? Any thoughts or snarks you would like to share with me?
