Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

A post you wouldn't expect from a reading teacher.

Is anyone else completely annoyed with this writers' strike? Actually, that's a little too mild. This strike sucks.

All of the shows that I just enjoy relaxing in front of at night have exhausted their supply of episodes. There is only one show I watch that is not affected by the strike--Project Runway.

But then Sunday night a new series started called Cashmere Mofia. Four high-powered women living the "corporate life" in NYC deal with issues of work, family, dating, etc. Kinda cheesy, but interesting enough for me to veg out and sip some wine to. So I was excited to at least have one other show to look forward to.

Except of all the time slots in the week, its regular air time is Wednesday at 9:00 PM...the same time of Project Runway.

I reiterate...this strike sucks.

I agree wholeheartedly. "24" is supposed to start this month, but will it? Will it only be "9"? I've been watching "The Daily Show" and "the colbert Report", because they wrote their own stuff and even lambasted the writers' strike on their first shows this week.

I, too, watch Project Runway. Love that show!

I agree. I miss Grey's, Desperate Housewives and Private Practice.
As for the Wednesday 9:00 timeslot-get DVR. It's so worth it.

You took the words right out of my mouth!! Although, I must admit...I really did enjoy Cashmere Mafia. Thank goodness for our DVR because I zoomed thru Cashmere Mafia first and then made my way thru Project Runway all in record time! :)

I love my DVR!

I know...I should get DVR. I just can't get myself to spend the extra $12 a month.

I have to check the ABC website to see if they replay Cashmere Mafia online.

I am hoping to emerge from the family fog at some point in the next five years and then maybe I will even know something about any of current tv.

I agree with you Cari. I think it is INSANE that we have to pay to watch television anyway and then to have to pay to record television is even more ridiculous. That $12 adds up over time.

Although, the television shows that I watch haven't been re-runs: Grey's, October Road & ER(since the new year commenced). Everything else is the foodnetwork, court tv, HGTV, or something along those lines.

But the writer's strike does suck because I am wondering how many episodes are stored up, you know?

The second episode of "A Daily Show" was pretty hard on the producers, too. Glad to see someone telling it like it is!

A DVR (Tivo) is the only thing we watch now. Mostly Food Network (Good Eats), KQED (local PBS that shows "Check Please" - a restaurant review show), Bravo (Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations), and the guilty pleasures like Monk (Lifetime) and Dirty Sexy Money (soooo Dallas, but I do like watching Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland, and Jill Clayburgh). Tivo also searches out the Thin Man movies and anything with John Cusack...

But, if they ever stop showing Cary Grant movies, the writers' strike will suck for us too.
