Grey's Anatomy Monday morning recap

Did anyone catch Grey's last night? Cupcakes are so "in". (see post 2/20) Personally, I would probably pick the man who surprised me with a cupcake over the man on his deathbed who looks like the brother from Everybody Love Raymond... but that's why I'm not a doctor now isn't it. All I can do about last night's episode is shake my head... tsk tsk. First of all, Meredith...whyyy ohh whyy would you sleep with George. Ok, the writers made you do it, that really is the only thing that can explain that. Then there's the whole "I'm in love with a heart transplant patient" scheme so we're all lead to believe that Alex will pull the plug on the man in a fit of jealousy. We'll see about that won't we? Oyyy this is too much emotional garbage to leave me with Grey's... Usually all of that stuff is neatly wrapped up at the end of the episode and then trucked away. And don't even get me started on Desperate Housewives flaking out on me again.

Time enjoyed being wasted was not time wasted...

Unless you're at work...

I just came across this survey that's a "Wasted Time at Work" list by state. I was astonished to find that Rhode Island was the second to last state... where does your state come in?
Wasted Time at Work

Google Nighttime

So for a while I was addicted to Google check out Google Nighttime.

Weather rant

The weather in the Northeast has gone too FAR. One minute it's a blizzard, then the 10 inches of snow that we got melts 2 days later due to 60 degree temperatures, and now, when I want to go skiing for the weekend it's raining and ridiculously windy, all of which will turn to ice tonight followed by temperatures in the teens and wind chills of -20 F. What!? Here's what it looks like for the weekend... looks like another ski weekend will have to be postponed. There better be good skiing into April this year. Argggggh
Eastern U.S.
A strong arctic cold front will move through the northeast on Friday afternoon and evening. It will be a very fast moving front featuring high winds, a flash freeze, and rain showers changing to snow showers from NW to SE as the afternoon progresses. Travel to the Adirondack, Green and White Mountain resorts on Friday evening looks tricky as roadways freeze up and wind gusts of 50-60mph push high profile SUVs around.

Temperatures will fall from the 40Â’s to the teens during a 6 hour period Friday afternoon, then to the single digits above zero by Saturday morning as winds continue to howl out of the NNW. Wind chills will be well below zero and the National Weather Service will likely issue wind chill advisories and warnings for Saturday. All skiers and riders should bring all the layers this weekend. Saturday daytime temperatures will be between 0 and 10 at ski resort bases in upstate NY, VT, NH, and ME while the summit daytime temperatures run 0 to -10F.

Thoughts on MySpace

First of all, did anyone see the MySpace clip on the Daily Show last night? Hilarious! Demetri Martin did his Trendspotting report on the marvels of MySpace... Here's the link Thank you Dr. Smallbeard for sending that along.

Seriously. Check it out.

I couldn't believe that MySpace has 2.5 more clicks than Google! Haha.. then again I consider all the times I click on it all day at work. I guess it does make sense. Anyway, check me out on MySpace: no sexual predators though please, I won't fall for it.

Ad Sense (less) & Mesothelioma

So I've been participating in Google's Adsense program since September and I've made a whopping $9.13...that's almost $1.90 a month. Not exactly something I can retire off of yet! It's kind of cool to write a random blog entry and see what kind of ads I get out of it. For some reason though, I don't seem to be generating the famous high pay out keywords like anything to do with the word credit... or randomly enough, mesothelioma and asbestos (especially cancer and lawyers). How many people write sites dedicated to the cause? Now, don't get me wrong, I understand that mesothelioma is a serious topic. My step-father even died from this 2 years ago and it was a slow and painful disease. And if you're interested... feel free to click on the ad at the top (cross my fingers that I get it!) because the alleged pay out for that keyword is something like $80 a click!

Finally Friday!

Thank GOD it's finally Friday. This week has been dragging on since Monday, probably because it's been such a drastic change since last week. This weekend Matt and I are going skiing at Stowe, in Vermont.

Stowe is famous for its steeps and I'm a little bit nervous to go there with my daredevil boyfriend.
...On the other hand, I'm so excited to get up to the mountains again! I haven't been in 3 weeks and I feel like the season is slipping away.

A little cartoon... a whole lotta trouble

So the whole cartoon controversy, which is just a bad situation, got me thinking that wow, for what seems like the first time in the recent history of controversies, the US wasn't involved! And then that got me to thinking about my college career and how I distinctly remember that feeling at least once. It was a strange feeling at the time because I usually was involved with, created, or got dragged into every dramatic situation that was around me. This time, I was in Montreal with my best friend and seven other guys over Spring Break (my freshman year maybe??)... anyway, there was some controversy involving this guy that we were with passing out and a bunch of people doing unmentionable things to him (... I can't even remember actually, I just know it was bad). He got pissed and then there was this whole scuffle over it. Literally everyone but me was involved in it and they were arguing and finger pointing and the whole time I just sat back thinking, wow, I actually didn't have anything to do with it. It was a great feeling, although I'm not sure if I managed to work on that more as college went on... The point is- US just STAY OUT OF IT sometimes... what a great feeling.

Back in the saddle again...

Never fear- I have returned from Orlando.

After I've gone through my inbox of all the emails that weren't important enough to address while I was in Florida, I'm sitting at my desk kind of bored. After 10 days of sensory overload down in Wacky World, I think I'm now suffering from sensory deprival. Oh my god! I don't know what to do... I haven't seen Mickey Mouse's head in over 12 hours! Actually that's fine with me, in fact, I definitely preferred Sea World over the Disney establishments because there wasn't a Disney character in sight for at least 3 miles. Hahah I must admit though, my favorite part of Sea World is when people get splashed (especially when they're not expecting it) muahahaha

I already miss those damn ducks though... : ( tear.
