The Amazing Race! Arrested Development! Arrested Development! The Amazing Race! Yay! Happiness!
but, fcuk u all pachino. bah.
Anyways, Emmys was pretty good, although I was disappointed The Sopranos won. Fashion wasn’t all that interesting, nothing really stand-out gorgeous or hideous that I saw. I was reminded how much I love William Shatner. Hee. I do have to say, though, I was interested this morning to hear on the news how Arrested Development was the second lowest-rated show to win the Best Sitcom Emmy. The lowest rated? Sex and the City. However, the reporter was quick to point out that since it’s on HBO and not on a broadcast network, it doesn’t really count.
Excuse me? More people watch Arrested Development than Sex and the City? They have gone on and on about how AD is so low-rated, and how Sex and the City is just such a cultural watermark (Or is that phrase cultural landmark? I have no idea.), and taps into the psyche of today’s urban woman, blah blah biddy blah, so amazing the show is, yes. And yet more people know who Steve Holt is than know who Big is! (I don’t know who Big is.) Anyways, I completely boggled at the TV, because I didn’t know that Sex and the City had so few people, relatively speaking, watching it, and here the entertainment media was trying to make me feel like an out-of-touch loser all these years for not watching it. Ha.
So, I’m applying to be a substitute teacher in my school district here. Seems like an okay job. I had to go downtown to the health center to get a tuberculosis skin test, though. You’d think it would be enough to just say, yep, don’t have the TB, no blood in my lungs, yea verily. But no. I also have to get my transcripts sent in, and get fingerprinted for a background check. You’d think that we’d recently had a sex offender at our school or something.
