8 Ways to Hi-Jack a Meme

Over the past year or so, I've gotten out of the habit of writing on my blog frequently, or even semi-frequently. And I keep thinking about shutting it down completely. But I think I've decided to keep it up and use it to post pictures and keep in contact with a few people. That being said, I don't really know if I'll be blogging in here more than once or maybe twice a month. At least for a while. Maybe I'll decide to really resurrect it in the future. But in the meantime, my cousin Lyndsi tagged me for a meme and I figured I actually do it since I haven't done one in a while. And then I kind of hi-jacked the meme...

8 TV SHOWS I LOVE TO WATCH
1) How I Met Your Mother: I'm so in love with Neil Patrick Harris. So stinking funny. He mesmerizes me. Oh, and the show is pretty genius too :)
2) Veronica Mars: Dear CW, I will never ever forgive you for canceling the best dramady ever created and keeping trash like Smallville going. Pathetic.
3) 30 Rock: The cast and writing are pure comedic gold
4) The Daily Show/The Colbert Report: Ummm, yeah, Jon Stewart is pretty much my hero and it's always great to be able to laugh at right wing nut jobs through Stephen Colbert.
5) Pushing Daisies: Clever, beautiful, genius, weird. I can't wait till it comes back on next week
6) Arrested Development: Dear Fox, just like the CW, I will never forgive you for canceling one of the best shows ever to grace TV screens
7) Dexter: Creepety creeptastic
8) Psych: A show that definitely does not get enough credit for the fantastic duo that is James Roday and Dule Hill

The very fact that you know the band Okkervil River means that you may not shut down your blog. I forbid it.

I have got to start watching How I Met Your Mother. Got to.

I'd be so sorry if you shut down your blog. (And Sarkastic forbids it!) That said, I know how busy life gets. Like your 3.5 hour real estate exam. Yikes!

I totally agree with you on Psych. That show is genius and pretty darn entertaining.

I've seen a few episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" and "Veronica Mars" I enjoyed both quite a bit. Tyler is obsessed with "...Mother." He is also in love with Neil Patrick Harris....maybe more of a man-crush. Speaking of Neil, I may have mentioned this to you already, but I wrote a blog about Neil in a musical blogisode. It's called "Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog." If you haven't seen it, you can watch it on Hulu.com. Neil Patrick Harris Singing is pure gold.

I've written enough, but I will add that Colbert is hilarious and I have started watching "Arrested Development" on Hulu- very funny.

P.S. Would you still be looking forward to a new president even if you had the foreknowledge that McCain was going to win?
