It seems that wisdom teeth removal (ouch!) and a relaxing trip home for Christmas has been just what I needed to drive me back into the blogosphere.

Looking at my last post I am utterly mortified I dropped off for so long – in fact, I’ll be amazed if ANYONE is still here right now to see this!

I went from woefully bored with unemployment and completely uninspired, to getting a wonderful job that has kept me SO busy (along with an extended family visit) I barely had time to think about it.

But what better time to jump back in than the holidays?! That’s when all the best storied and picture taking takes place anyway.

To tide you over til I get together the photos from some recent events (Thanksgiving wasn’t THAT far away, right?) here’s a couple of pics from, well, WAY too long ago in Internet-time.

Midnight Screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2


Bug & I at Disney’s D23 Expo back in August (Wreck it Ralph is the next feature coming from Walt Disney Animation)


The 4 chefs for Thanksgiving in LA this year (starting new traditions with good food and fabulous aprons)

Confessions of a TV Addict

In lieu of some photo/video heavy posts (more from my Adventures in Maui: Luau and snorkeling additions, some bittersweet end to GREEK posts, and a meetup with an old Disney friend!) here’s a confession:

I’m addicted to entertainment. Specifically film and tv, hence why I now work in LA. Even more specifically though, all through college my dorm friends and sorority sisters called me a “Walking TV Guide” because I knew so much about fall/spring premiere dates, what shows were on when, and how to successfully manage the viewing schedules of a 40+ person house when 3 things were on at 8 on a Monday, but we could only DVR 2.

That’s the long way of saying the majority of the network fall premiere schedule has been released, and this is what I’ll be watching:

* ( ) are maybes, depending on how much I get sucked in even though I don’t want to (cough CW shows cough) or new shows I’m not sure of yet.
* Being part of the entertainment industry, we often get the chance to view pilots before they air (normally in May/June) so the new shows (bold) I’ve listed are ones that I’ve had the opportunity to watch, and liked, and want to see more of.

8 PM: (90210 — 9/13); How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM!!) — 9/20
9 PM: Gossip Girl (most likely…I kind of ebb in and out on this one) — 9/20
930 PM: Mike + Molly — 9/20 (this was cuter that the premise of two people meeting at Overeaters Anoynmous makes it sound) 10 PM: Castle — 9/20; Hawaii 5-0 (very fun show) — 9/20

8 PM: (One Tree Hill…leave me alone! — 9/14); GLEE (!!) — 9/21
9 PM: Life Unexpected –9/14; No Ordinary Family (looks promising, don’t let the very bizarre marketing campaign on ABC’s part fool you) — 9/28
930 PM: (Running Wilde…love Keri Russell, but on the fence) — 9/21

8 PM: (Undercovers…great pilot, not sure if I can handle another show though so this would probably be an early one to go) — 9/22
830 PM: Better With You (One of my favorite/most-excited-for new comedies. Joanna Garcia is great) — 9/22
9 PM: Hellcats (kinda like a slightly grittier Bring It On) — 9/8; Modern Family — 9/22
930 PM: Cougar Town (again…no judgements) — 9/22

8 PM: Vampire Diaries — 9/9; Big Bang Theory — 9/23
9 PM: Grey’s Anatomy (I’ll be on this ship til it sinks) — 9/23
10 PM: Private Practice (this ship too) — 9/23

…and on Sundays if I’m bored, I might watch Desperate Housewives or Brothers + Sisters (both return 9/26).

This doesn’t even take into account cable programming/shows starting in a weird season/general mid-season shows and I’m already at 20+ shows (if I watched everything on this list all the time). As you can see, I’m pretty addicted to the CW and ABC, as far as networks go, though I am a sucker for CBS sitcoms.

As far as new shows go, I’m particularly excited about aforementioned Better With You, Hawaii 5-0 and Hellcats. For old, I’m hoping Glee can live up to it’s continued hype, and I’m honestly really interested to see where the super-suspenseful, scared-the-crap-out-of-me Grey’s finale goes this fall.¬†Good thing this all counts as “career research” now right? …Right?

And I wonder where my time goes sometimes…Happy Friday!

Sigh…just when I think I’m getting back on the blogging horse, there I go off the wagon again. Let’s not talk about the mixed metaphors in that sentence (though they are, at least, both western themed?)

I have two full functional tales of adventure for you. A mini-Disney reunion, and a student film festival extravaganza! Alas, my computer decided you don’t get to look at them right now. Because it decided to eat my iPhoto library.

Well, not literally eat. The photos are all intact on my computer (thank goodness! I would not be alive right now if I lost over 24,000 pictures) but iPhoto simply would not open and let me access them. And it was a holiday weekend, so spending a ton of time on it was not really in the cards. Apparently I need to consider hosting my photos on Flickr or something as well, for situations like this. I don’t even have that many pictures to go with each, but they just felt incomplete without them, so I held off.

Luckily, a makeshift compromise between me and my mac has been made, and I’m going to post them tonight with the pictures they were intended to have!

Maybe George (my mac) is mad because I made him all girly:

Oops? Anyway, look for those tonight, and Glee recap tomorrow! Yay Glee!
