IMHO

I have no business writing this blog post.

I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy since…well, I don’t know when, so that pretty much discredits my quality of knowledge or opinion.  But I have to say two things:

Derek Shepherd deserved a much better send-off.

To die from injuries sustained in a car crash immediately after saving a bunch of people who were injured in a separate car crash?  Did Shonda Rhimes run out of ideas? Or did she feel like that scenario was fraught with irony?

I vote for the former.

Unless Patrick Dempsey, who loves racing, demanded death by car, it just seems lazy to me.

And what’s with Rhimes’ habit of having her female characters off their men by pulling the plug?

Izzy did it. Now Meredith. Is this supposed to come across as a show of strength?  A “I love them, but I can take them out when it’s time to let them go” kinda vibe?

I’m sure most people, when faced with a similar situation — in medical professions or not — would do the same thing.  And it seems a little redundant on a scripted series like this.

Derek deserved his own unique death.  Derek deserved better.

I just learned that improvised dance is called ‘danceprov.’

dance provI didn’t know the art form existed…and certainly wouldn’t have guessed at that name.

So does it follow then that stream of consciousness writing is…’writeprov?’

Spur-of-the-moment shopping is…’spendprov?’

Snacking when you’re bored is…’bingeprov?’

Sketching on a napkin is…’doodleprov?’

Writing your daily blog when you don’t have a topic is…

‘Postprov?’

I’m not a doctor, but I play one in today’s post…

Feeling down?  Lethargic?  Watch this clip:

I watched a rerun of Wipeout during my lunch hour yesterday and laughed myself silly!  It was the perfect pick-me-up.

Try it!  You’ll like it.

Thank you America!

You made The Americans the FX Network’s most watched series debut yet.

fx_americans_keyart_p_2012And now FX Network has decided to renew the freshman series for a second year! Season 2 will also have 13 episodes, an increase from this year’s 9-episode order.

K-G-Beautiful!

Now, I’m sure many of you made the decision to watch the spy drama all by yourselves.  But for those of you who decided to give it a look-see based on my recent post

You are truly great Americans.

If you’ve missed out, check out The Americans marathon starting tomorrow night at 10pm ET on FX Network — all five episodes shown to date, back-to-back-to-back.

Get your shoe phone ready.

This is my 1,000th post on The Sticky Egg.

That’s 1,000 blog entries in 1,000 consecutive days.  No sick days.  No holidays.   No weekends.

As the Dowager Countess would say, “What is a weekend?”

I started the blog 1,000 days ago to give myself the opportunity to write for fun.  I added the daily deadline to make sure I actually did it…and that was very motivating.

At first.

Now it’s the folks who share their comments — and the readers brave enough to actually subscribe — who inspire me to come up with my brand of foolishness every day.

So, thanks for sticking with The Egg.  Hope to see you here for at least a thousand more!
