Stinkin' Strike

Wow, you ladies go to long lengths to get groomed during your pregnancy. I am impressed. You know I think we groom more for our doctor's then our husbands, but whatever the motivation, our men have it made.

Let's talk about the writers strike, shall we? It is all over the news and as disturbing as it is for me not to have my new shows on, what is more disturbing to me is the footage of these striking writers. No, I am not talking about Jay Leno bringing them bagels. (bagels? Jay, you are worth billions of dollars, hows about a full catered breakfast?)
Have you heard them chanting on the picket line?

"Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Management can’t write the show!"

"Webisodes and DVD, we won’t write ‘em, not for free!"
and my personal fav:

"We write the storyas for Eva Longoria"

Storyas??? These are writers? They can't come up with anything better?
This cannot bode well for them. No wonder Grey's Anatomy sucks this year.

Also? If Lost doesn't come back with all new episodes in February after me waiting forever, the writers are going to have more to worry about then getting paid for webisodes.

I'm just sayin'.


  1. I can hardly wait for Lost.

    And Grey's? Quit watching last season. Thought maybe they outsourced writing at that point.

  2. "they are writers and they can't come up with anything better?"


  3. I agree about the strike. Since they moved the Office to the grey's timeslot, I've stopped watching grey's. Guess I haven't missed anything, huh? And I've been upset about waiting for Lost until next year. I'm hoping that the shows have already been written, so I won't have to wait any longer.

  4. I can't wait for lost either. I was mad when I found out that it wasn't back for the fall...but I guess that it is for the best. I agree those new episodes have better be written already!

  5. Men do have it made. They don't worry the least about what anyone in the medical profession things of how the lawn is mowed. I worried compulsively in the last month of my pg that I would go into labor when not...uh, trimmed. When the Hubby had to have his vasectomy, I tried to talk him into trimming things up a little first. His reply, "What for? Won't the nurse do that?" Poor woman. I felt really bad for that nurse.....

  6. Yes, I think we women do groom for our doctors more than for our hubbies while pregnant. heehee.

    And as for the writer's strike. Gah. You know there are so many super funny and talented writers in the blogworld, I can't understand why Hollywood's not plucking a few of them out!

  7. I feel the same way about Nip/Tuck and ER.
