I don't know why, but I love Smallville. It's not the most well written show out there by any means, but I'm just drawn to it and just dying to see what happens next. The Superman story has got to be one of my most favorite storylines.
Since starting NetFlix, I'm back on the kick that I started a year or two ago. I'm on Disc 1 of Season 4. They are making some huge leaps on the storyline and I can't figure it out.
TGIF. Friday nights growing up consisted of the whole family sitting on the couch watching Full House, Family Matters, with maybe some Dinosaurs or Step by Step thrown in. Man, I miss Full House. I confess, I still watch it everytime I'm flipping channels and happen to find it. What was your favorite childhood show?
Okay, I am freakin' in love with the Biggest Loser. It is such an inspirational show and it never disappoints. So after last night's show, America was given the ability to vote for either Mark or Roger. Whoever wins the vote will be in the final 3 on the way to becoming "The Biggest Loser".
Mark has transformed his life; mentally, physically, and emotionally. Roger has beaten all the records out there and is just a really likeable guy. Jacinda and I each voted for different people, which basically cancels out our votes, but hey, you still gotta do it.
I don't know if this channel exists on satellite systems, but Comcast has this channel called Mojo. They got some random shows, but my favorite is this 30 minute, high octane show called Wall Street Warriors. Although I am a broker, my day to day doesn't look too much like this show, because a lot of the people they follow are actual floor broker at the different exchanges. But if you're at all interested by the stock market or just big business (mostly in New York), then check out the show. They have some of the episodes online. Check it out at MojoHD.
I just got home from the gym, Jacinda went shopping, leaving me with the kids. We quickly cleaned up the mess they made in our bathroom while I was in the shower, and headed to the living room. One of our favorite things to do together is watch our favorite TV shows. We limit Kiara to a couple shows a day, so you gotta make 'em count.
There are only a couple of kids shows that I can even stand let alone watch for 30 minutes. This is obviously a post for all the parents out there, but these our my favorite three shows. I can watch these over and over, episode by episode. Just like I watched Finding Nemo for a good part of 2005. The Backyardigans on Nickelodeon. These 5 characters go on adventures in their backyard, sing songs, and actually get down with their bad selves! You gotta see it to believe it. They got some moves that I swear I saw JT do on his "SexyBack" tour.
Handy Manny and Higglytown Heroes are both on Disney. Handy Manny is a bilingual cartoon that you can stand. That other cartoon, Dora, she bugs. She yells the entire time! Manny is polite, a handyman, and I think he has a crush on Kelly, the supply store owner. The voice is none other than Fez from "that 70's show". That is probably my favorite, but me and Kiara have been watching Higglytown Heroes the longest. The theme song is sung by "They might be giants" and they sing the same song everytime that we scream out at the top of our lungs.
So, all you parents out there, what is your favorite kids show?
I watch CNBC...all day. Well I don't as much watch it, as I just listen for news as it pops up, but you get the point. My TV is on all day, but one of my favorite times of the day is when Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" comes on at 3pm. This guy is just insane. His energy level always gives me the extra push to finish the day strong. So, today he was going through mail and answering questions. One write-in said (maybe not exact quotes, but you get the point), "Jim, you roll your sleeves up all the time, have you ever thought of just wearing a short sleeve shirt?" Cramer's response, "yeah sure, why don't I just wear a pocket protector too and completely geek out!" Love it...
The Biggest Loser is back on and Jacinda and I just watched the first episode. If you ever want some inspiration to go workout this show is it. The oldest contestant who is 62 years old, lost 31 pounds in one week. Can you believe that? Plus, he wasn't even one of the bigger guys. He started at 297. So on to my own personal journey. Today I did my 3.5 mile run. It took me 42 minutes which is right at 12 minute miles. Pretty pathetic still and my calves are freakin' burning right now. Well, back to it tomorrow morning. Hittin' the gym at 4:30.
