Monday Night TV

It's been a while since I blogged, and even longer since I didn't blog about house or wedding stuff.

Anyway, after we got home from another night of running stuff over to the new house, we got home and settled in for two of our favorite sitcoms and PIE!

First, the pie. Strawberries and Creme for Marie Callendars. Kinda messy, but really yummy. You should try it, plus it's on sale. mmmm.....pie......

Anyway, we've really gotten ourselves into How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men. I know Two and a Half Men has been on for a few years, but I don't think I realized how funny it is. The dynamic between Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer is hilarious. The little kid that plays Jake is funny, but the show doesn't really revolve around him, so it's not like he needs to carry the show a la Webster. If you haven't watched it, you should give it a second look.

How I Met Your Mother is just the best show on. Neil Patrick Harris is a hoot and a half! His Barney character is definitely a scene-stealer and last night was no exception. His efforts to sneak into the prom were great. It was good to see Ted and Robin get back on the road to friendship, but do I sense Lily's angst growing and see a Friends'-style wedding escape?

Finally, I leave you with a funny sounding word (no - not ointment). Inertia. It's our new favorite word. Try and use it at least once in a casual conversation today.

Barney is one of the best characters on TV right now. That show kills me. When he ran off with the turtle head? LOL!

Yeah. That was great. I also liked the scene where he snuck in the window while Robin was on the phone only to be apprehended with Robin none the wiser. And then when Ted and Marshall just snuck in, that was the best.

Maybe in the summer when I will have more free time.. (wait this is me, I never have free time) I will try to check them out in re-runs. I love giving students my favorite words and have them share some of their own as well. I challenge them to use the word 3 times in a normal conversation and I tell them when they do that it becomes a part of their vacabulary.

Teri, maybe we will record a bunch of them, and in between pool breaks you can catch a few episodes. You should meet my friend Denis. Along with being a hoot and a half, he likes to pick random words to use.
