New Year's Resolutions


2011 already!! Seems like the year was just turning over to .... 2000!

That good old Y2K bug that was going to infest and infect every computer in the known universe.

Never happened.

But I digress. It's time to make those 2011 New Year's resolutions that no one ever keeps (that I know of).

And it's time for mine.

And it's the exact same one I've been making for more than a decade, and that is ---

To only make ONE New Year's resolution.

And I just made it.

SO simple, and SO easy to keep!

Hope everyone has a happy, healthy, and financially secure 2011.

(i.e., "Live long and prosper.")

2011 Golden Globes Awards

Jan 18th is the Awards ceremony. And I'm mostly apathetic about it. I rarely go to the movies, so no interest there. And the TV shows I like and watch regularly are almost never nominated (still angry that Lauren Graham and "Gilmore Girls" was never nominated for either a Golden Globes or an Emmy).

But to scan over the nominations --

Never saw any of the movies nominated (one exception) so I don't care about them or the actors or actresses in them. I did go see "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D, and I was sorely disappointed in it. Not sure what I was expecting but I can't deny the effects and 3D were pretty good. It's just that the story wasn't very exciting, or something.

TV nominations --

Never watched any of the dramas nominated except "The Good Wife." So I think it should win.

Four actresses nominated (in shows I watched) are Katey Segal for "Sons of Anarchy;" Piper Perabo for "Covert Affairs;" Juliana Margulies for "The Good Wife;" and Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer."

Kyra won last year, so she is eliminated. Piper was pretty good in "Covert Affairs" but not that good. So that only leaves Katey and Juliana. Both were VERY GOOD, and I can't decide who was better, so they should share the award.

As far as the guys nominated in dramas (I didn't watch), the only show I've seen is "House." But not regularly. I got tired of the same old formula - mysterious disease, lots of things tried to cure the patient but only makes things worse, the patient is eventually cured, and House is real dick.

So, I don't care who wins that category.

I don't watch sit-coms because they are never funny and mostly boring. So I don't care which show, or which man or woman wins or loses.

I don't watch mini-series.

So, basically I don't care about any of the categories except Best Performance By An Actress In a Televison Series - Drama.
