I just might make it after all.

This week, I got to see Most Adorable Presidential Historian(tm) Doris Kearns Goodwin (she really is that tiny in person) AND I got to reunite with the host of the NPR affiliate show I interned with last summer (who I have a major crush on even though he's happily married with kids)!

Oh, and I got another retail job so I will have ALL THE MONEYS come holiday time.

@katiemcgillicuddy I don't want to talk about the Pats game on Monday night. Even though I know it's gonna be constantly forced down my throat when they play the Broncos on Sunday night.

I am tres sad Prince is no longer a Tiger, because he was my Tiger and he is the second Tiger to have abandoned me (the first is Curtis Granderson, who went to the Yankees of all teams.)

Disappointed the Michigan/Northwestern was stuck on BTN because it ended up being great and there was much rejoicing at our get-together of some family friends/Michigan fans. (Although we were all very disgusted by Northwestern's "Wounded Warrior" uniforms...)

@MrsTeacherFace The "HI MOMMY! HI DADDY!" definitely doesn't help...

I've been feeling super super blah the past few weeks; I don't know if it's the fact that it now gets dark at 4:30pm or that I haven't had anything exciting going on in my life as of late. Any ideas on how to get myself out of this weird funk I'm in?

@districter I'm so glad that it's on Hulu/Amazon/Netflix now because back when I got into the show two years ago, I had to catch up via not-so-legal means. I'm hoping that the fact Breaking Bad is over and Mad Men is on hiatus - plus all the great press it's getting (that Pin piece from a few weeks back was GREAT) - will convince people to watch on Sunday nights. Though it sucks that it's on after football and hardly ever airs on time :(((

@knockout that Pin piece was excellent - and I'm glad that it got you into the show! I binged on the series over like two weeks (during the school year, using not-so-legal means), and was able to catch up in no time. Enjoy it!

@katiemcgillicuddy Considering that the other Top 25 matchups at 3:30 are ND/Navy and Clemson/UVA, good choice! (Though I will also be keeping an eye on Nebraska/Northwestern, as I was supposed to go to the game but plans fell through and I want Northwestern to turn things around while pointing & laughing at Nebraska's demise. Sorry not sorry to my little sister who's a freshman there.)

ESPN Pigskin Pick'em favors the Ravens 70/30 (not surprising, they're reigning Superbowl champs), but the spread is +3 Cleveland. It helps that the Browns are playing at home... should be a pretty good game!

Anyone here watch The Good Wife? I am in desperate need of someone to talk about it with, even if it devolves into us shouting "I KNOW!!!" at each other.

@katiemcgillicuddy the Michigan/Michigan State game is tomorrow! Made even more exciting by the fact we're ranked right on top of each other (Michigan is 21, MSU is 22.)

Sunday is kind of lazy (no one interesting in Cup of China, not worried at all re: outcome of Pats/Steelers), but maybe I can convince my dad to watch the Browns/Ravens game at the bar down the street...
