but I do look forward to CBS on Monday nights because there are some very funny shows on. Big Bang Theory comes on at 8pm and I do rush home to make sure I can watch it.

Ok, so I rush home and guess who is on? Our president. Normally I would love to hear Obama speak. But why tonight? According to the tv, he was only supposed to have been on for a half hour. It is now an hour! And I do not care what the president thinks about A-Rod admitting to using steroids.

Hopefully I can watch Medium when it comes on at 10 :yes:

OMG I just said the same thing to Jon, "I can't believe that man has the EAR of the President and the best thing he can come up with is to ask how he feels about A-ROD."

PUULEEZE.

And I'm sorry, I do love him. Really I do. But he is NOT a brilliant public speaker. I hope it was just nerves, he had seemed to get a bit better during the campaign....

And I REALLY wish he had not used the phrase "blow up the public school system" that gives me shivers.

I didn't think he was that bad at speaking. At least he pronounces words correctly :tongue: Ahem...sorry. I missed the comment about the public schools :thumbsdown:

He's not bad...he's just not great.

I may have missed the context of the school comment, I was doing other things at the time, but whatever it was it caught my attention...as well as Andrews :D

I don't know but I haven't seen it. Apparently Leonard's mother is going to visit. Christine Baranski is playing the mom. I LOVE her! She is so funny.

We've just got 30 Rock series 1 over here (I know I know, everything is a year out of date by the time we get it :lol:) anyone else like it?

Johnie
10-02-2009, 02:20 AM
I do! 30 Rock is so funny! I know a lot of people don't like it though.

Beccaberry
10-02-2009, 02:24 AM
I really enjoy 30 Rock :D :D

OOH She's the one from Roseanne isn't she Johnie? Unless she's back for another episode, I've seen this one....it was cute.

No, the one from Roseanne is Sheldon's mom.

Christine Baranski is from The Birdcage and the tv show Cybill.

Johnie

:yes: she made the tv show Cybill. She is a hoot.

Laurie Metcalf is the one from Roseanne. I know the last name is right since it's my old boss' last name.

Beccaberry
10-02-2009, 02:30 AM
Yep! That's who I was thinking of...Metcalf

I used to love Cybil because of her! Never knew her name of course :D

Johnie

You know I don't usually know people's names either.....not sure why I know hers.

Johnie
10-02-2009, 02:41 AM
Definately worth waiting for!! She is the female Sheldon.....

Beccaberry
10-02-2009, 02:41 AM

You know, I wish they would change the normal showtime to 9:30pm. It would make my life so much easier.

I don't have a Tivo :sorry: I don't think I would use it. I always used to record stuff on the VCR and never watched those shows.

Beccaberry

Precisely why I do not have TiVo or a DVR! I taped tons of programs that I loved and rarely had the opportunity to watch--and probably have viewed about 2 hours in total! :rolleyes:

Actually, I rather liked Obama's speech and press conference. It wasn't perfect, which is part of why I liked it. And he explained his positions, rather than leaving them open to speculation. Of course, there still was a lot of speculation, but less so than with his predecessor.

However, if he had pre-empted Dancing with the Stars (US version of Strictly Come Dancing), I would have been just a bit miffed! :wink:

I'm still without the tv and it seems to be going pretty well. I watched some free shows on the net. :D

And I'm sure you could have found steaming video of the President's speech had you been so inclined. :)
