    24 – You Gotta have Friends

    I know I’m a day late with this but I needed a moment or 3 to recover from the series finale of 24. I will miss Jack B and the crew more than I can say. No one can whisper act like dear Kieffer. And Chloe, the looks alone were worth all my Monday nights. Thanks so much 24 and yes, I’ll even say thank you Fox for bringing Jack into my life.

    This ending (unlike LOST) left me completely satisfied and ended just as it should have.  With Jack having his behind saved by the only woman he could always count on, Chloe and her super brain. It was friendship as a love story. With fighting, and guns and blood stuff. *sniff*


    Little Jack with all his attitude and I salute you.



    P.S. I’m all for watching THE NEW C.T.U with Chloe in charge. Just sayin’ Fox.

    Crocodile Tears

    Or how many times can a grown man cry during a 3 hour period? Answer: way too many.

    Jason, Jason, Jason. What was up with that hot mess of a put off and proposal then the After the Rose on The Bachelor? I will admit I only half watched in honor of Nana’s birthday. I was flipping back and forth between Jason and Jack Bauer on 24. There were no crocodile tears from Jack.

    Jason did not fail to disappoint me by being the guy I suspected he was from the beginning. Quite shifty. I think it’s so not fair how the show did not let Molly see how Jason broke up with Melissa. Why not give her the full picture before she makes a decision? What a big set-up this whole un-reality thing was. And they are doing a part 2?

    Well, I’ll be braving the elements to get things done that didn’t get done yesterday due to the snow day. It’s back to the bitter cold here in the northeast so I’m bundling up. Looks like it will be a while before the snow melts.

    What on tap for your day?


    P.S. Crazy woman update: I’m still hanging in there with the no sugar thing or white products. Although I did cave and have a small piece of Nana’s birthday cake. I was pretty strong at her dinner. She was not happy with me when I turned down her macaroni and cheese and the seafood salad and the sweet potato pie. I could go on and on… I feel like a warrior.

    Is a Year Too Long To Wait?

    Like some tortured romance heroine I’ve been waiting a year for this man to come back into my life.

    Sad isn’t it? But very true. I’ve been pining away for him to make my Sunday nights exciting again. No offence, DH, but he’s Jack.
    Jack Bauer.
    Ever since the very first episode of 24 I’ve been hooked on Jack. My husband and the twins swear that I named our dear little dog Jack after him.

    I tell them, no. I’ve always loved the name Jack. It’s was my grandfather’s nickname and I think the name, Jack Jackson sounds like an action hero. Very fitting for my wild dog. But if I’m honest, then sure, part of the appeal of the name came from Jack Bauer.
    He’s just like I like my heroes, tortured and completely alpha.

    Besides the man can save the world in 24 hours. Be still my heart. And he does it without asking a thing of me. Making all the decisions rather right or wrong, thankfully usually right. Totally take charge, never wavering and never asking me to do anything. Not, what’s for dinner, where’s the checkbook, what time is practice, any clean socks, can I go out Saturday, Can She go out Saturday, Should we switch insurance, Did we pay the insurance, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…

    Sure the whole take total charge thing could get old about a minute after 24 hours but sometimes a woman needs that escape. Loves it!

    24 is back baby. You’ll know where I’ll be on Sunday night.
