My So-Called Life … as we know it

I casually watched (it was on in the background) the new ABC series “life as we know it” tonight. And then I was mysteriously transported back a decade to 1994 when I watched the new ABC series “My So-Called Life.” The two shows are so similar I kept hoping that somehow the new show would feature Jordan Catalano in a cameo. No such luck.

The main difference between “So-Called” and “know it” is that the latter is from a male point-of-view and the former a female point-of-view. The new show features a couple quasi-dorky male teens in their quest to get laid. The old show featured quasi-dorky Angela in her quest to lay Jordan Catalano (but then she got scared when he took her to an abandoned house to carry out the deed, and then Jordan suggested that perhaps Angela was “abnormal,” and then she obsessed about him some more).

I wonder if this new series will ultimately face an untimely demise like its predecessor. Time will tell. I’m not going to watch it die.


There she is, Miss Dog America

I am proud to introduce my little pride and joy — Sierra! Isn’t she a beautiful beagle? I know that I am biased, but she is like a child to me! And who doesn’t think their kids are the cutest?

Sierra is a high-tech pup. She’s been a member of the Dogster community for several months, and she even has her own blog-like diary on the site. Check it out!

Having a dog has totally consumed my life. I thoroughly enjoy the responsibility of taking care of Sierra. Yes, she is ultra spoiled, and I will continue to treat her like a little princess. I know that in return she will worship me forever.


To blog or not to blog

I decided awhile ago that I wanted to have my own blog. It seemed like the “cool” thing to do, to share all my random thoughts and experiences with family, friends and complete strangers. But I got kinda scared. You see, I used to keep journals and diarys all the time when I was a kid. Ultimately, they would all end up abandoned. My favorite was the little pink diary with the lock. I wrote in that one for a long time, but eventually it just sat in my nightstand drawer. I think I even lost the key.

But now that I am older, I miss being able to just write about my life. After admiring several different blogs from afar, I am now ready to have one of my own. Oh blog, I promise I won’t forget about you like the pink diary. There’s just so much more to say now than ever before as my life enters a new stage …
