How To Start Your Week

Starting your week with a laugh is the best way to get it right.

If anyone missed SNL on Saturday please watch this and just laugh.

I know I know I’m a bad blogger.  I’ve been very busy traveling (to Paris) and entertaining (Lindsey, Jamie & Jen were in town)!  Updates to come this week….promise.

American TV

American TV Is amazing.  I don’t care if people say it’s trashy or wrong.  I love it.  Having been in the UK for 4 months now I’m really missing Bravo, Food Network, Cooking, ABC, NBC, TLC, and Style.  The list could go on and on and on. I haven’t even watched OWN yet!

Well we have found the answer.  I’m actually sitting in my living room in London watching Live with Regis & Kelly right now.  How you ask…..

SLINGBOX!

We set it up on a TV in NJ and we watch it though our computer.  Now you’re probably thinking “but it’s a 5 hour different so you aren’t going to stay awake until 1am just to watch primetime TV”.  Well that’s where DVR comes in.

We are happy campers now!  American TV in our London flat…GENIUS!

Rachael Ray’s on…gotta go. 

How To Make 90 Minutes Fly By

Friday night was date night.  We went to The Gate for dim sum and then headed to the movies to see Due Date.  We got to the movies a little early (90 minutes early…oops) because I think we went to the wrong theater but that’s ok because this theater was in the Westfield Mall so there was plenty to do.

We bought tickets then roamed the mall. There is an ice skating rink in the mall until January so we were going to go ice skating but I wasn’t wearing socks so I quickly said no way to that idea so we watched the others skate around and fall a lot.

Next up…. Snog.

It’s exactly like Pinkberry, Red Mango & Berrywild.

Play around in the Apple store.  This could distract you for hours and hours.

Then we went to the Sony store to check out the new 3D TV.

I don’t think I could sit on my couch and watch TV for more than 15 minutes with these on.  What if you have glasses already?  They don’t fit over them. I also don’t think they are flattering in any way what-so-ever.

Those activities wasted enough time so we headed back to the theater.  The seats were assigned so we still had about 15 minutes so I had a little fun with my photography in the lobby of the theater.

I was a photography major in college and since blogging I’ve been playing around with it again.  I really missed it!  I really want a DSLR so I can have fun with it even more but they are so big and bulky so I’m not in any rush to get it yet.

Plus I’m a student.  BOOOOOO.

As for the movie…It was hilarious.  The Hangover is still the funniest movie out there but this movie kept us laughing.

When You Have Too Many Things On Your Mind

You miss things such as the fact that even though your cable hasn’t been officially connected there are free channels that you can watch as long as your TV is plugged in.  I was tired of staring at our beautiful new TV  just sitting there so I decided to plug it in and give it a go.  Well as soon as I turned it on I realized that we have over 30 channels that we could have been watching over the past 3 weeks!!!

So frustrating but at what are you going to do.

So today I have watched a ton of TV including multiple episodes of Friends, The Wedding Planner, and The Devil Wears Prada.  I think 27 Dresses will be on in 2 hours so you better believe that I’ll be on my couch watching it.

Oh and I’ve also discovered that I can “steal” a neighbors internet so I’m currently on my couch watching TV and blogging.  Life is good.

I’m Going Crazy…

…without internet and TV in our flat!!  Only 5 more days until it’s connected but until then we will be finishing the first season of Modern Family which we downloaded from iTunes. If you haven’t watched this show before please stop what you re doing ad start watching it.  I can’t decide if my favorite character is Cameron or Phil.

If you watch the show who is your favorite character??
