Now Even More Reasons To Procrastinate!

I thought something today that I thought I'd never actually think...

September is going to be awesome.

September used to mean an end to summer, back to tests, homework, school, busy work hours, darker days... glum. glum. glum.

I have a better outlook this time around. Aside from awesome birthdays, a wedding, a weekend getaway bachelorette party and other fun social events that we'll be making our cameos at, this month brings some serious couch-potato kickass that makes me want to give everyone in the world a hi-5 for September.

1. Labor Day. Yes. I don't have to go to work on a Monday. This is awesome. September could be fantastic for this reason alone.

2. The final episode of The Time of Eve. This is an incredibly nerdy thing that I have been waiting to be released for months. It's the last in a 6 episode online series of animated shorts about androids and humans.

It's animation is incredible and the storytelling is brilliant but I'm not even going to try and expand on it further because it would only highlight how truly nerdy I am. And besides, I'm kind of embarrassed by how excited I am for it to finally be here.

3. TV. After what always seems like an endless summer hiatus, my favorite shows make their way back to my boobtube starting a parade of fall premieres in the months to come.

The Office returns on Sept 17! Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Kelly Kapoor and Kevin Malone - my life has been so normal without you weirdos in my life. Jim & Pam are getting married! Hilarity obviously will ensue.

I also have high hopes for the show that is scheduled to be on right after the office, "Community" - with Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, John Oliver and pulling writers and directors from Arrested Development and the Sarah Silverman show ( check out the 4 minute trailer on YouTube that made me snort-laugh.) I'm in. Also interested in Glee starting Sept 16... (which will then lead into Ugly Betty in October, V in November... yay...)

4. Beatles Rock Band - out 09/09/09. I have my pre-ordered copy set for same day delivery... so unless you already have me RSVP'd to your happy shenanigans this month, I will not be leaving my house unless it is absolutely necessary. I probably will not be answering my phone unless you happen to call me between my rockin' sets. You may come over and join my band, play the drums and sing harmonies with me (which reminds me... I need to get another mic for my band set) choreograph interpretive dance to "Dig a Pony" and bring me Beatles inspired hamburgers, grilled cheese sandwiches and scotch & cokes. Those are all good ideas. Do them. (

So yes. These things are (in the words of Mr. C) "great, good and glorious" - and of course, blogworthy.

As queen of the proud couch potatoes, I would like to officially welcome the month of September to 2009.

Good to have you here.

P.S. Remember August? Gosh, that month lasted a hot minute...


  1. 5. Halo 3: ODST - out on 9/22/09. I just realized that the next Halo game is being released this month. Holy crap... I am so out of the nerd loop. A sequel to one of the best video games in history... yah... that's pretty awesome. Well done, September.

  2. hahahah we are going to be living in a cave.

  3. Haha, when you said September is going to be awesome my first thoughts were tv and labor day. btw, I might be having a bbq on Sunday afternoon. If you guys are free you guys should come by!

  4. I have to go to a bridal shower in the late morning/early afternoon... but late afternoon should work!

  5. oh man september is gonna kick butt... 9.9.09 i'm so ready!!!!

  6. I can't wait for good tv to come back! Oh how I missed it.

  7. Omg, what about 9??? It looks soooo good.

    Damnit I'm sad I don't have cable yet. Stupid's expensive.

  8. Kathleen! You're right - that too!!!
