The Leftovers

I was so busy talking about running 24 miles and being boo-ed yesterday, that I forgot to mention a couple things about the weekend.

1.  The first DVR cuts of the season are in.

I tried really hard to like this show. I love Will Arnett. I love Christina Applegate. But man, I cannot identify with these characters. Maybe it’s more for parents? Or people without cold, black hearts? Because I cannot get with all the baby stuff. Raising Hope is way more my style. (Hubs and I love Raising Hope.)

Next up (sorry, Michelle):

I love Elisha Cuthbert but I can’t do it. Even Damon Wayans Jr. is pretty charming. But for the love of God…

I really don’t know what happened there either because I loved Casey Wilson on SNL. After last week’s episode when her and her mother were singing their problems to one another, I wanted to poke my eyes out. Instead, I just deleted it from the DVR. It was a close call, though.

2. On the awesome TV front, I love that The Walking Dead is finally back.

I know a lot of you don’t like horror or zombies, but if you do, this is seriously an amazing TV show. So well done and well acted.

3. We watched Take Me Home Tonight.

I loved this movie. So cute and funny, plus I have a total nerd crush on Topher Grace.

4. After the 24 miles on Saturday, hubs and I met up with some friends to see The Thing.

Hubs was acting like a 13-year old girl at a Justin Bieber concert for this movie. So we hit up an afternoon showing as to not interfere with my our drinking plans that night. If you don’t already know, this movie is a prequel to The Thing with Kurt Russell made in 1982. I don’t think it makes sense that the movie is named the same thing since it’s not a remake, but whatever.

The movie did really well linking up to the first movie so the writing was impressive. Hubs liked the movie a lot. I thought it was ok. The creature effects were so over-done that they were more ridiculous than scary and I think that killed a lot of the tension for me. But, if you’re a fan of the first one, you’ll probably like this one.

5. That night, we went downtown so I could properly hydrate after my 24 miles.

That one on the right was called a Cream Pie. Sooo delicious. We met up with Lisa who was already downtown for a birthday party. Hubs did some hooping and we did our picture-taking thang.

We had a fun night. Probably too much fun because I didn’t wake up until 11:30 the next morning. Smile

Anyone else watching The Walking Dead or do you hate zombies?  (I love zombie everything. And they can give me horrible nightmares, but I just can’t quit them.)
