Must Flee TV

What the hell happened to Thursday night TV? It sucks big time. Joey blows. And after that god-awful Apprentice finale last season, I refuse to watch that overly predictable crapfest anymore. ER lost me four seasons ago. I know Survivor hasn't started up and CSI and Without A Trace are good, but not appointment TV for me. Never saw the O.C., bitch.

I'll be good and take my laptop to Starbucks and do some writing tonight. And while I'm there I will resist every temptation to try that new chocolate drink that I see on every billboard. I just gotta stay strong and keep looking at the lame French saying of the day calendar sitting on my desk with today's edition: "Ca me grossit, ce manteau."

Translation? This coat makes me look fat.

You are so going to buy that chocolate drink.

I'm sure the coat doesn't make you look fat (and what a USEFUL phrase to learn). I originally would've agreed with you on the Apprentice, because yes that finale was PAINFUL!, but this season's first episode was kind of good. The person who got fired deserved it. They (the apprenti) tried to do the every jump up and down and point thing like last year, but it didn't work. The Don actually saw through their smoke screen and fired the right person. There's still a chance this first episode was a fluke, but I'm going to give it a chance. Some of the people are actually... likeable. Otherwise, I agree. Survivor actually lost me 1st season. ER lost me smallpox year, and I too couldn't get into the OC.

I told my friend, who loves the Apprentice, that one of the reasons I wasn't watching i, aside from the finale, was because it was so predictable--almost every time the PM gets fired. Sure enough, he told me the first person to be fired this season was the PM. And I did check out the first 10 minutes of this season to see some of the contestants. There's no way in hell The Donald would really hire some of them to run one of his divisions. So, it also lost its credibility.

And I probably will get that chocolate drink. Maybe they'll have a kid's size.
