Filling a day with nothing

I have filled my day with nothing today. Well, not quite nothing, but the next closest thing. I watched countless episodes of Scrubs which is probably the last funny sitcom on TV. (People who watch The Office will debate this but I don’t find The Office funny. It’s too much like being at work to be funny.) I also discovered that Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is available on the Apple music store, so I can watch it afterall, without having to stay up late on a school night. I downloaded the second episode and watched it. It was okay, but the ending was absolutely brilliant. It was a parody of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “I am the very model of a modern major-general” (“I am the very model of a modern network studio”). That happens to be my favorite G&S song (of those few songs that I have heard) and so I was pleased.


And in even bigger news, the Yankees are going to be playing the Detroit Tigers in the AL divisionals, which is the matchup that I was hoping for, since the Yanks went 5-2 against the Tigers in the regular season.


Okay, I have some chores to finish up that I have been ignoring all day long.
