Smashing 30

I’m now 30 and I can say out of all the birthdays this one feels normal, the same and exciting all at the same time.  See as an editor I’ve interviewed for many shows.  4 years ago I had a couple GREAT interviews for scripted shows and you know what they told me, “Sweetie come back in a couple more years when you aren’t so young.”  I started working in TV when I was 13 in local television getting as much experience as I could in everything I could get my hands on.  So I’ve been doing this awhile, but 30 is that number I think in which people can’t say you are “too young.” And thus it’s exciting.

I had a wonderful birthday with lots of friends and fabulous food (still waiting on photos from Jillian). Thirty people showed up and stayed until 1:30 in the morning.

The Toronto Maple Leafs came to town.  I had the best seats I’ve ever had.  3 rows from the penalty box.  It was super fun even though the Leafs played miserably!!

SO…new tv for the year.  First off “The Amazing Race” is wrapping up this Sunday.  All three of the last 3 teams are alright and I wouldn’t mind if they won.  The underdogs are Nicolas and Donald although I think the more likely winners are Ronald and Christina or TK and Rachel.  It’s been an alright season, but hasn’t lived up to the wonderful premiere.

The Sarah Conner Chronicles (aka new Terminator TV show) premiered on FOX this past week with smashing ratings.  It’s a fun action tv show, that has good chases, interesting plot lines and good casting.  The production value and CGI is good, although I imagine it’s budget is INSANELY high.  I like it and hope it lasts.

I hope you are all having a good 2008 so far!!

I like Hell’s Kitchen on Fox.  I can’t wait until Chef Ramsey opens a restaurant in Los Angeles.  He cracks me up and I wish he would adopt me as one of his kids.  I will also watch the new Terminator show and let you know how it is.

I didn’t watch any of the late night talk show returns.  I hear Leno was funnier than Letterman, but really I’ve never been a fan of these shows where a guy talks, makes jokes, has a few guests I don’t care about.

I’m reading Golden Compass.  I’m about half way thru.  I have a list of things to do to keep me on track while Sam’s gone.

Happy New Year to you all!!
