TV Shows

I watched Aliens In America on Monday and it definitely looks interesting. A Midwest family has a son who is a luser (people putting the L on the forehead) and mom is pretty concerned, so she's talked into taking an exchange student that's coming from London. She's envisioning a tall Nordic guy who will make her son part of the "in" crowd. What the counselor doesn't tell her is that the exchange student is coming through London from Pakistan. Yes, a Muslim in the Midwest. Very funny.

I watched second eps of Bionic Woman and Life and they were much better than the premieres, so I'll keep watching until I get bored.

The Secretary

My friend Jay from bookgroup came this afternoon to put it together and got the bottom chest of drawers part done and most of the top secretary part done when he found we had three of one part when we should have had one of that part and two of another. I've contacted the company and am waiting for callback. In the meantime, I went ahead and transferred things from the old vanity into the bottom part of the secretary and put the old vanity and mirror and old chests up on Craigslist. I have lots of email, of course, and picked someone for each and the person for the old chests is coming tonight. Haven't heard back from the person for the vanity & mirror. It'd be nice to get it out tonight, too, since Steve will have to make the bed in the bedroom (it won't go down the hall) and the more room I can give him, the better.
