Cancelations: Are Jericho Peanuts THAT Good?

November 12, NBC canceled Lipstick Jungle and My Own Worst Enemy. Not ever watching LJ, I don't know whether the show was even worth keeping to start out with.  MOWE? I thought the premise had promise. I watched it a few times, and I myself got lost through the plot. It tries very hard to be a JJ Abrams show, and alas, it failed.  Really, someone can retool this show and it would be a hit. For now, I guess it will get shelved.  The other good thing MOWE had proven, though, is that Christian Slater IS a good actor. Employ him. He's bankable.

Scrubs' swan season is coming on air, much to several shows' dismay.  DirtySexyMoney, Eli Stone and Pushing Daisies are getting the ax. DSM was baaad. I wanted to like this show so much when it premiered last year but even this soap opera cannot even float as bubbles.  I knew that several people said Eli Stone was good but I never gave it a look-see.  Pushing Daisies, which I've watched all season last year, I am sad to see this one go.  It was very promising and really touching. Ned, Charlie and Olive are strange in their own ways but it was touching at the same time.  I hope NBC does it justice when its last episode airs.

Now, the CW. The only show I get to watch on this channel is Supernatural so I really am not versed about their current shows.  However, it' was strange to find out that Jericho is back! (?) 
Valentine is getting the ax. I knew one person that watched this show. She said she liked it. However, the show's supposed to be good but now it's getting canceled. Leave it to CW to screw things up.

But not everything isn't lost. With good shows leaving and some that are bad and are still on, Stephen Colbert wants to share the Christmas love with everyone.  On Nov 23, Colbert's Christmas special will be on. It promises to be the new Muppets special minus the muppets. If you're like me who doesn't want to see anything Christmas related before Thanksgiving, tape the show or buy the DVD the Tuesday after its air date. 

Happy Holidays!

What Ever Happened to the Separation of Church and State?

This pissed me off.

I am glad that I am not part of this parish. 

Someone might say that I am not a real Caltholic, or that I should be kicked out of the church for saying sentiments against this priest. But the way I see it, being denied the Sacrament of Communion based on the fact that a man that's leading the country is going to uphold the constitution on the decision of Roe V Wade is criminal.

Is President-Elect Obama doing the abortions himself? No.

Is President-Elect Obama saying that girls that get pregnant and don't want their unborn child go to abortion clinics? No.

He is the man of the law, and has to uphold said law, it is his constitutional duty to make sure the law is upheld.

It is kind of funny that this priest says that McCain would have been a better president because he SAYS he's anti-abortion. Apparently, the lives of soldiers constantly dying for wars that shouldn't be the US' problems have less value compared to the lives of the aborted, especially in the cases of women who got pregnant because they were raped by people of their own family or by men who have no conscience, raping and pillaging women against their will... Let alone be raped and carry a child when they are children themselves!

I do not advocate abortion but I am glad that I don't have to be faced with the decision whether to have one or not. However, as much as I don't want to be denied medical assistance in a stressful situation, my vote should not be the reason that I would be ex-communicated, if not, denied a sacrament because I choose a leader based on his ability to lead and save lives.

I am not going to be repentant because I have made a choice for someone who I think could lead. So where does that lead me with the Sacrament of Reconciliation?

Chugging Along

Here's why I've not been here in a while. I've participated in NaNoWriMo and I am schlepping. Trying to make up a story from scratch is simple in concept but hard in execution. These people's lives are in my hands, so to speak.

Last night was so busy at work that even if my characters wanted me to continue plot, my hands are tied performing my bread and butter duties. Tonight won't be any better. Actually, it's going to be busier. However, I am determined to make up for the 8.6% word count necessary for last week. Pray I find time to write the next 25% this coming week. Oi vei!
