1. ICLW, for those of you wonder about the cute little puppy icon but have been too lazy to click on it, it is for International Comment Leaving Week. This week have to comment on 5 new blogs and return one comment. A total of 6 blogs a day. The best part of ICLW is that I get to read all these new blogs that I probably wouldn't have come across otherwise. There is some good stuff out there. And as more and more of the writers of my favorite blogs get pregnant (I get a ton of inspiration from those blogs so I'll keep reading them of course) I have to add new ones to my blog roll of people still trying like me so that I can have stuff to read that I can relate to. And ICLW is the perfect vehicle for this. So if you haven't done so, click on the puppy icon and find out what it is all about.
2. I have always looked forward to the new fall season of tv shows. I always get a thrill out of seeing cliffhangers get resolved and checking out the new programs to see if I like them. This fall I'm really looking forward to Grey's Anatomy. It has really wonderful writing and I love where the story line is going. But I'm also really into Dancing with the Stars which is just a cheesy reality show. That isn't all. I love How I met your Mother, Private Practice, Brothers and Sisters and Desperate Housewives. Thank goodness we have a DVR.
3. We have a new guy at work. This is good because a new person always changes the social dynamics of the lab. We were in this stagnant situation of a bunch of 20 something grad students who were really loud and obnoxious all day long. There were only 3 of us more mature quite types. This guy is a little older and has kids. So I'm going with the assumption that he'll be in the quiet group. Already I've noticed that the volume has gone done a ton. Lets hope it stays like this.
4. I'm signing up for belly dancing. There is this new studio in my neighborhood and it looks like fun. And I could use some activity around my middle. Stress eating all summer is not good for the waistline.
