Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Au revoir, water cooler buddies. Au revoir.

It's a shame, really. My interpersonal relationships-- especially at work-- have suffered a most debilitating blow. You see, in our increasingly insular national culture (what with the globalization of the internet, cell phones, telework, and the undermining of indigenous cuisines by forcing a homogenization of world dietary preferences-- and yes I'm looking at YOU, McDonald's), network television remains one of the last positive vestiges of a more intimate, close-knit time, and as such is the only topic of increasingly infrequent moments during which I am forced-- I mean, given the opportunity-- to actually speak to people. You know, face to face?

So now that Taylor Hicks has successfully spazzed his way into America's heart, Veronica Mars has discovered who killed the busload of Neptune High students, and Jim has finally declared his love for Pam, what the hell are we supposed to talk about around the proverbial water cooler? Huh? Politics? Pass. Religion? Be serious. SPORTS?! Bitch, please.

No more impromptu meetings in Cat's cube where we defend our latest AI pick or speculate wildly about whodunnit on Veronica Mars. No more "JimtotallykissedPamandwasn'tthatlikethecutestthingEVAH?" and "Didn't my wee Ryan look especially fine last night with the scruffiness and the ironic tee under a suit coat and whatnot?..." Yep. It's arrivederci "OMG! Did you see Kat's boobs last night?!" and hullo "Did you do something with your hair? No?... Oh."


Seriously. There is nothing on television. NOTHING.

Summer hiatus is no fun at all.

And I so miss your reviews of AI! When my husband was in China and agonizing over missing each elimination, I'd email him your take, it made missing the show that much easier and I didn't have to give him a blow by blow. And he loved the references to TGIM.

Any chance Tuesday Night Book Club might help the void?

"Windfall," baby. The pilot was pretty good, I thought.

We HAVE to watch RockStar Supernova--it starts in July--I am all about watching that and secretly will watch Big Brother--(its an allstar version this year).

Charlotte-I caught Windfall when they re-aired it on Friday and I am hooked. Scandalous. It will have to be my sad and not as good replacement for Grey's Anatomy for the summer.

Oh MAN! You mean I missed the premiere of Windfall?! I wanted to see that! Now it'd be like coming late to the party.

When was it on?
(*off to see when it will be on again*)

Windfall is Thursday at ten est i believe and they MIGHT rerun the first episode that night too. At least it looked like that on my cable guide.

Oh Cat, I totally feel ya on this one. I'm reduced to having to go outside of the livingroom in the evenings for fun. We walk, we work in the yard boring stuff. I even finished reading a book!
I do like Last Comic standing but why do they keep showing the same episodes? Lame.
I LOVE Greys' Anatomy so I might be able to catch up on the season if they show repeats. I just started watching it right after the "Vajayjay" episode.
I'll have to get into Windfall so we all have something to talk about. xoxoxo

I've been catching up. You've been busy writing while I was away. I really liked your "Random Ramblings".
Hilarious. I love the way you write.

But seriously, wasn't it so totally cute when Jim kissed Pam?!!

wha? You're not watching "SYTYCD?" K, I did have to think to do that... I don't know it by heart - be kind to me. Um, yeah - So You Think You Can Dance? no watchy watchy? I admit, I've missed it 3 times already, so I'm not all over it, but the fact that I've seen it twice, that's really really good for me, when it comes to the concept of following a show.
