Today...

...I'm loving these two songs: Roll Away Your Stone by Mumford and Sons, and Out in the Twilight by Tally Hall.

....I'm dying to watch this week's episodes of Big Brother to find out who's going home. If any of you watch BB let me know! An evil friend of mine decided to drag me down with him this season by getting me addicted to it. I'm disappointed in myself because now I can't be one of those smug people who say, "I don't watch reality tv." It's so hard because I love being smug!

...I started out with a plan to eat granola and fruit for breakfast until someone brought in donuts from Washtenaw dairy. But I only had half of one. And if I eat another half later, it still only counts as one half. Those are the rules of halves when applied to donut consumption.

....I'm looking for a good yoga studio in Ann Arbor. One that focuses on meditation and breathing. Anyone know of one?

....I'm thinking about how I used to think everyone who liked A Prairie Home Companion was pretentious but now I like it. It's like I don't even know myself anymore. It happened so gradually. But I don't like the whole show, and that makes me feel better about it.

...I'm moving forward with my goals to have a happier life by nurturing good relationships, getting away from bad ones, and making healthy goals for body and mind. I hope it lasts. Why are good goals so hard to keep? Don't I want to be happy? Why are we our own worst enemies?

...I'm thinking about how judgmental I am for what I said about people who like A Prairie Home Companion. It's just hard though because judging is so fun.*

What are you up to today?

*sarcasm translates in text, right?

I watched BB in secret for years, too embarrassed to admit that it was my favorite summer show and that I occasionally cancelled plans so I didn't have to miss an episode. I subscribed to the live feeds for one season and posted in forums; it was quite obsessive. I'm not ashamed anymore though. I felt pretty good about pulling Kathy into the show last season and now I'm glad you're watching it too. I think we should apply for next season, then we can write on the board, "JLR, EAD PPL July-hopefully September".

Yoga on Sundays at Powerhouse on Huron rd in Ann Arbor. I've want to go at 9am before church but can never seem to make it.

So much to judge, so little time. I think there are support groups for addiction to reality t.v. But A Prairie Home Companion? I think you're on your own there. But I do agree with you on the rule of halves. That could be the reason I'm not doing so well on my diet.

Prarie Home Companion! I like the news from Lake Wobegone, and the Adventures of Guy Noir, but the music is usually too twangy for me.

I listen to NPR a lot, and prefer the Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and Michael Feldman quiz shows.

Mumford and Sons are my current obsession, so great.

I'm also looking for a good Yoga center in Ann Arbor, let me know what you find. (I've heard good things about Russa Yoga, but haven't tried it yet).

If I had a dollar for every time I make this blog....I'd have 5 dollars. BB4L, Big Brother 4 Life

I agree with Mom's comment! ;) Man, this post made me laugh. Being smug really is fun, but sometimes things happen. Thanks for the tunes, btw - love 'em!

Prairie Home Companion? Are you referring to the radio show or the movie? Cause the movie was NOT that good.
