Lovely readers! I am vacationing for Thanksgiving, and it is entirely probable that this will be a dust-bunny week here at SHE BLOGGO. But, I have a parting gift for you until I return.
I decided, in addition to being thankful for my health, family, friends, and the general good blessings of my life, that I would jot down a few silly pop-culture-related items for which I am thankful.
Left to right, according to turkey feather, I AM THANKFUL...
I. ... that Cougar Town is defying its ill-chosen title by poking fun at it and continuing to be funny as hell. PENNY CAN!
II. ... that Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway are reuniting their lovely chemistry for Love and Other Drugs.
III. ... that Jim Parsons won the Emmy for his work as Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. I don't even watch that show regularly, and I know he deserved the win.
IV. ... that Nathan Fillion is on my television, on a show that's not in danger of getting canceled! He really is ruggedly handsome. (And the best part of Castle.)
V. ... that Parks and Recreation is coming back! Patience, friends - January 20th, 2011! And not only that, but NBC is expanding their comedy block on Thursdays to be THREE HOURS LONG. That's a lot of funny, and I cannot wait.
VI. ... that Lea Michele sings on my TV every week. I know people are starting to complain of an over-abundance of Lea solos, but I guarantee we're all going to miss hearing her sing every week when Glee goes off the air.
VII. ... for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I. Enough said.
VIII. ... that Conan is back on my TV, up to his usual tricks. And with more jokes about cable programming.
IX. ... for Chris Colfer. I didn't particularly want to have two Glee-related thanks, but whatever. I love Chris Colfer, and am thankful for his presence on television. He's amazing.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating! I'll be back in a week!
