I can see your halo and don't it feel good?

I spent an evening getting reacquainted with my old friend television. I haven't spent an evening watching so much TV in a long time. I started with some Jeopardy! (I totally would have won), then watched Hot in Cleveland (that show makes me laugh), then caught part of the Bachelorette. I haven't been watching this season, but from what I saw I liked the guy she sent home so boo to her. Becca T and I both didn't like the dude with glasses; his V-neck shirt was too low and he had beady eyes. After the Bachelorette, we caught a silly show called True Beauty and finished with an episode of Glee from my DVD collection (hence the title of this post).

Whoa, when I write it all down, that seems like a lot of TV. It was. I commented to Becca T that my butt was feeling sore from sitting so much. She replied "that means you're getting a good workout." I like how she thinks.

At least I wasn't completely slothful; I did get some laundry done in the meantime.

Other than my night of heroic TV watching, I've been quite busy these days. I often have people ask me if I can handle the two months off without getting bored. I always say it's no problem; summers are way busier than you'd ever think. I spend a lot of my time getting caught up with the people and tasks that sometimes get lost in the craziness of the school year.

The Metric show on Friday night was amazing. The Molson Ampitheatre was packed and with good reason. Emily and co. put on a spectacular show. Metric has definitely one of the best live shows out there, and you guys know that I do go to a lot of concerts, so I know my shit. :)

Since the show I've been busy going out for late night breakfast, sushi, one-year old's birthday parties, pho + ice cream dinners, and a proper late morning breakfast. It's amazing how many people I've been able to see so far this summer. It truly makes me appreciate all of the wonderful people in my life.

Oh! And I also caught the World Cup final game in the midst of all of that. I watched the whole game, and I have to admit that I liked it, even though I don't understand off-sides, yellow cards, and all that stuff.

Becca T is still with me for another week. This week has some down time for me, but I've got a dentist appointment, a mani-pedi, a US shopping trip, and a wedding to keep me busy. Again, totally no time to get bored.

And, this week I'll have more time to get back to the gym and read some more. I'm slogging my way through Sybil. The first 200 pages of the book were great, but it's lost steam and I just want to be done with it. I have about 50 pages left. I can't wait to start on something new.

Hope the rest of you are enjoying this wonderful summer month too!

Too bad about Sybil! I've read a few books that run out of steam halfway through lately....so disappointing.

TV - UGH. I'm so fed up with it! The only way I can watch crap like The Bachelorette is when I'm hanging with a girlfriend (Rawbean) making hilarious comments.

This month has sucked things that decorum prevents me from mentioning here.

I've been watching X-Files on Netflix this summer. This has rekindled my love for Agent Scully.

It's so true that you can be super busy while having time off - glad you are taking advantage of it!

I'm really into the new stars album! It's good and I was thinking it wouldn't be for some reason. I was wrong....

Pho + ice cream dinners. That sounds pretty intriguing. It would be a good balance in the summer heat, as the ice cream would cool after a hot bowl of pho.

i'll be honest, i only watched the World Cup because of the supremely hot players! though that damn octopus became a distraction towards the end.

glad you're having such an awesome summer!

Sounds like youre having a wonderful time off. Funny how people are extra busy during vacation time that they barely have time to actually relax.

Funny how your butt got a workout. I fanatically followed the world cup and must say that the Final was not the best game of the tournament. Happy summer days!

Nice that your life has been so full you need to catch up on TV!

I hope your summer continues to be awesome.
