One week from today, I have my second exam for the unit. Since I failed the first exam, I've been working my butt off, not just to pass this exam, but to get honors.

Around midnight last night, I decided to take a break and treat myself to some television (a.k.a abc.com episode player). I could have used some sleep, but I knew that watching the season premiers of Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty and the series premier of Private Practice would lift my spirits. And, for the most part, my shows didn't let me down.

[Warning: spoilers follow.] Grey's Anatomy had the weakest episode. What was up with Izzie and the deer? Stupid. Disappointing. Ugly Betty got me, though. I was like, "What? Santos didn't die at the end of last season?" But alas, at the end of the episode we find Hilda alone in her bedroom. Sadness. Private Practice was the winner. That cast is so easy on the eyes! And I just love Addison. Overall, a good TV fix.

I love the drama of the relationships on these shows. (Probably due to the lack of a relationship here.) Whenever there's a "Pick me! Choose me! Love me!" scene I always hear Bette Midler singing "Stay With Me" in my head. Throughout the seasons it could have been Izzie singing to George; Callie to George; Meredith to McDreamy; Addison to McDreamy; McSteamy to Addison; Preston to Christina; Christina to Preston; Betty to Henry; Hilda to Santos...

In case you don't know the song, I give you the Divine Miss M, Bette Midler, performing "Stay With Me." If you aren't feeling Miss M in this performance, check your pulse.

I was so glad when addison left!! I miss Burke :( He was a hero to me (obv the part he played, not the homophobic comments!)

Yeah...after the homophobic comment(s), which surprised me considering his role in Get on the Bus, there was no more love for Burke.

I'm glad Addison left, only because I now get to watch three great shows each week instead of just two.

That episode of Greys was stupid. I am only able to suspend so many of my beliefs for a TV show and the idea that surgical residents have so much free time that they can revive a deer in the parking lot? Preposterous.
I've been reading your blog for an hour at work and that is the only thing I've thought of to say. Yikes.
