Hellooo??? Remember me

Wow, I haven't posted here in a long time! Glad to see it's still going kudos to you all for keeping the posts rolling. I'd say I am just busy with everything but that seems like a cop out, so I will just blame it on being lazy.

So here is a quick update in the land of Phats. I am pretty good right now, my wife and I are expecting our first child here in late late november, I pretty much told her she wasn't allowed to go into labor on the day of the Old Oaken Bucket game, we'll see how that works out. For those that don't know that's the big Purdue/IU game. We're pretty excited we're having a little boy, any name suggestions are welcomed as we haven't come up with anything we both like. She vetoed Phats Jr, not sure why?? I offered to do a name our kid contest on the blog but she didn't go for that either oh well. I think I am ready to become a parent, I mean I have had a dog since 02 and he's still alive kicking that has to count for something right? This Christmas ought to be pretty cool, at least I think so anyway.

Well, I just thought i'd give you an update and let you know I am not dead, just lazy. I don't usually share much private stuff in my life but this is pretty cool news so you got a glimpse. Don't forget on my main blog I do college pick em for football games every Thursday they are up. I try my hand at picking games of schools who my blogger friends either follow or went to school there. If I am leaving your school out let me know! I will gladly add them

Have a great week everyone.

Cancelled Shows

Many of my favorite shows have already shown their season finales and the networks have already begun listing the shows they were bringing back.

I was sad to see that some of the shows I liked aren't coming back. Many times this has happened. I've tried to analyze why some of my favorites have been canned (sp?). Maybe it's because I have a weird sense of humor. Maybe it's because the things that I find amusing or interesting fall left of center. However, I have noticed that a lot of a show's lack of audience viewing has to do with the constant shuffle of a show's air time. There are interruptions and rescheduling due to a network special, a sports play-off or something of that nature. Show's get shuffled to a new night to make room for what a network hopes to be another super sit-com or drama.

Who can keep up with the shuffling? Whenever I tune in and my show isn't on, I assume that it got canceled mid-way and don't look for it. Another few favorites bit the dust!

In Boredom, I Turn To The Television

So when I'm bored, which happens to be a lot of the time these days, I turn to the television. Lots of pretty good shows this time around.

I've got some of my new favorites. What are some of your favorites?

New for me is Flash Forward and Modern Family!!

So autumn is almost here. It's my favorite season. It reminds me of football, especially college football. I always loved watching the Mountaineers on those Saturdays, when my friends and I would forgo studying and just be football fans for a day.

What sort of memories does the change in season elicit in you?

Happy New Year

What are your New Year's resolutions?

I am trying to come up with something that I am not going to break. I thought about eating more fruit and vegetables, less chips and fast food. But that was quickly broken. I also thought about exercising more...and with that I've had more success (such as taking the stairs rather than the elevator) and using the treadmill. I have also thought about ways to make myself a better person.

I will try to keep these resolutions. I do know that by the end of February, most of them will have been forgotten, only to resurface again with the stroke of midnight next year (and then I will feel some remorse or regret).

So tell me, what are your resolutions?
