Is everyone else working tomorrow, because I'm not. It seems that a lot of my friends have to go into the office tomorrow because they got nye off or some other day and companies are saying that nye - or whatever - is in lie of tomorrow. I have to say that I am REAL happy that my office is closed until Tuesday. I need the day to decompress. Well, to be honest I have been decompressing for a few days. It is nice to take it easy over the holiday season.

Tonight I watched so much TV it is embarrassing. First I watched my DVD of Four Weddings and a Funeral. It ranks as one of the very few romance comedies that I like. I probably like it because someone dies. Then I watched my Big Fat Greek Wedding. I saw it in the theatre and thought it was really funny. But upon second viewing, it is actually really crappy. Not just because it is a romance comedy. My roommate always hated it, so now she can make fun of me as she was right all along. It's a piece of crap. Perhaps I liked it so much because of John Corbett. I loved him as Chris in the morning on Northern Exposure (I loved him almost as much as I loved Dr. Joel Fleishman).

Then I watched the second half of Dynasty: the making of a guilty pleasure. Good good stuff. So good and cheesy. They did cheesy right. I totally forgot that the woman who played Crystal Carrington ended up marrying Yanni. Theirs is a love that will last a lifetime - unless they are already divorced. It was funny because the movie sort of tied the sinking of the show to the tanking of the US economy during the Regan era. Well, the Regan era and the ridiculous plot lines. I was kinda disappointed that I just didn't watch the whole movie. They talked a lot about their ratings war with Dallas. I wonder if JR getting shot caused a spike in Dallas ratings forcing Dynasty to really go over the top. They didn't mention the other shows like On Flamingo Road or Knots Landing. Perhaps they did in the first half.

Due to my orgy of bad TV my roommate refused to watch TV with me. It is a good thing too because she has a lot of marking to do. I think she should thank me for making the TV room such an inhospitable place. Now, some innocent university student will get their papers back that much faster. I am a good roommate.
