NEW TV: Thursday

My Name Is Earl (7:00pm CST, NBC)

Earl is in prison now. And the show is back on track. After a hit and miss season last year, I’m hoping that the season premiere is setting the tone for the rest of the year. With Earl in jail, I’ve read that the other characters are going to be given more screen time. Not that Earl will be ignored – they managed to strike a good balance between Earl and Joy, Darnell, and Randy.

In summary, I liked it.

My rating: My Thursday night of one-camera comedies remains undefeated.

The Office (8:00pm CST, NBC)

One word. AWESOME!

Michael hits Meredith with his car. All is not well between Dwight and Angela. All is well with Pam and Jim. And Kevin shows his true colors as a Jim/Pam shipper!

This is going to be a great season, I just know it!

My rating: Hell, yes!

And tomorrow night, last but not least, Midnight.

I guess I should tell you…

…that I’ve been posting from my new computer for a few days now. My new MacBook computer.

I didn’t say anything earlier because right now we are in the hate portion of our love/hate relationship. I know that once I figure out how to do things with it, we will move into the love phase of things, but right now it’s just frustrating to not know how to use it! I can’t even post a picture of it because I DON’T KNOW HOW!

But it is very pretty – white, to match my iPod, of course.

I’m hoping to get everything moved over on Sunday (going shopping on Saturday in Chicago with Jillian from work – and also meeting her fiance’s single, big-city-lawyer, college roommate at his housewarming party while we’re up there…). Right now all I can do is be on the Internet which actually gets old pretty quickly. So after I move everything over on Sunday, I’m going to make an appointment at the Apple store for my free half-hour, how-the-hell-do-I-make-it-do-what-I-want, introduction session after which hopefully everything will be hunky-dory between the two of us.

I just have to keep remembering that I used to hate my iPod and now I can’t imagine life without it.

Also, since my iPod has a name (Hadley Swain), I sort of feel like the iBook should have one, too. Anyone have any suggestions?

ETA: Aaaaaand, just over two months later, I realise that it’s not an iBook, it’s a MacBook. Really, it’s amazing that I can function in this technology-heavy world… 😉
