Update & what I’m watching now

Hi all!

BREAKING NEWS: I just read around 11 p.m. tonight (on Twitter & CNN web site) that Osama Bin Ladin is DEAD!!!  Wow, after ALL this time!  I’m sure we’ll hear more about it in the A.M.

UPDATE ON ME:

I didn’t write ANYTHING on the blog in April, can you believe it!?  I meant to, but was feeling a BIT lethargic (about everything, NOT just blogging).  I REALLY need to concentrate on eating better this month; it seems like I lose motivation easily.  (I feel heavier than when I was in NYC- 2.5 yrs ago.)  Also, I need to weigh myself to see the REAL damage.  Thankfully, I’m still the SAME size in clothing!  But I hate buying clothes lately b/c things don’t look quite right.  

Yesterday, I came across David Garcia’s blog (Keep It Up, David) re: his battle w/ weight and his plan to eat better/exercise.  You may have seen him on Ellen; he was a production assistant on her show.  I added him to my blogroll.  His story is VERY inspirational; he’s lost 150 lbs. in about a year!        

As for the apt/roommate(s) search- it’s on again after a LOOOONG break!  The bad news- rents (in DC metro area) have risen in the past 6 mos.  And this isn’t just in ONE area, it’s everywhere (or so it seems).  Also, I’ve recently decided that I want to find a place where I can have my OWN bathroom.  My mom (yes, she’s still in Indy ‘burbs) keeps saying that I don’t NEED to move, but I WANT to!  I don’t think adults (who have decent jobs/some savings) should live w/ their parents.  (No offense to any singletons who still DOES live w/ their relatives, BUT it’s just not for me.  As some of you know, I’ve lived w/ my Dad since December 2008.) 

WHAT I’M WATCHING NOW:

American Idol (Fox) – My fave is boy-next-door 16 y.o. traditionalist country singer, Scotty McCreery, from North Carolina.  I want to adopt his as my 2nd lil bro!

Game of Thrones (HBO) – This is a NEW series starring Sean Bean (who I love), Lean Headey (a lovely Brit), Peter Dinkage (American), Harry Lloyd (up-and-coming young Brit), and MANY more talented actors of all ages.  I wasn’t TOO impressed with the 1st ep, BUT the 2nd ep totally wowed me!  The sets, locations, and costumes are AMAZING to say the least.   

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC) – This show, which I watch pretty religiously, is STILL going strong.  They are focusing more on Olivia these days (which I like).  I think it’s irritating to keep switching ADAs, though, and heard that Casey Novak will be back soon.   

Treme (HBO) – Veteran character actor David Morse and Jon Seda (who seems to NEVER age) have joined the emsemble cast for S2 of the critically-loved show.  Go check it out!
