In Lieu of Actual Blogging

I've got tons and tons I'd like to blog about, but the first week of school and all the other related activities have knocked me on my ass.  It doesn't help that Ritu's been out of town since Wednesday.  Instead of blogging, I've discovered how easy it is to waste time over at YouTube.  This evening I've spent time trying to figure out how to add YouTube links to my blog.  But I don't just want the links; I want those cool things where you see the little screen and just click on play.  If anybody knows how (or if) this can be done with an AOL blog, please let me know.

So, instead, I'll do boring old links. 

If you watch The Office (and so far I've only seen the American version) then you know it's a comedy, and a very funny one at that.  But the Jim and Pam characters are what anchors the rest of the show and their relationship is one of  the best on television.  Here's a link to the NBC promo for the new season, highlighting them.  I can't even tell you how this makes me grin.  While perusing YouTube I found that there are a zillion videos people have made, all of Jim and Pam moments.  I won't admit to how many I've watched today.

Next, while we're all about pop culture, Battlestar Galactica starts up next month!  The second season ended back in February with a major mindfuck.  October seemed forever away, but now it's finally just around the corner.  Here's the promo for season three.     And this seems like as good a time as any for a Jamie Bamber picture. 


My God, how I love television.

Lastly, I found a video of something I saw on television ELEVEN years ago.  It was a Patti Labelle special and she sang some duets with Cyndi Lauper.  I remember sitting in my grandmother's den watching it and being completely blown away.  I only ever saw it once, but it stuck with me.  It took me about 3 seconds of searching to find it this afternoon. Here ya go.  They sang Time After Time which is one of my all time favorite songs, and one that can move me to tears.  This version isincredible. 


Now I need to go pack school lunches.  But, maybe I'll check out just a few more Pam and Jim videos first.....

Great link - gawd, how did we get so old???   I just put the British version of The Office on my Netflix - my brother promises they're funnier.  For now, I LOVE Jim and Pam.
