30 Rock

Post contributed by Hilton Miranda

My favorite show on television, hands down, is 30 Rock. I am so excited it’s back on the air. I actually can’t figure out why it comes on so late in the season. I know there are tons of people who love it as much as I do and who would definitely watch every episode if it came on at the same time as the reset of the shows. I’m assuming it has something to do with the schedules of all the other actors, because I know they are all really busy. In any event, I am super happy it’s back on. I’ve missed Tina Fey since she left Saturday Night Live, and I love seeing her back in her element. Obviously there are parallels between the shows—30 Rock revolves around a group putting on a comedy show, and each character is hilarious. Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey are my favorites, but Tracy Morgan is a very close third. The three of them play off each other perfectly and each story line is sidesplittingly funny.

Few Things

Contributed by Milford Woods

There were just a few things that I had to do this morning before I made my noon lunch date with my best friend. We try to go to lunch at a different place once a week. I was running really late because of a mix up at the pharmacy. I had gotten everything done that morning, dropped off the mail and Shop electricity rates TEXAS to get a better rate. I went in plenty of time to get my prescriptions filled, but for some reason the insurance that I have with my husband’s new job didn’t have me registered on the prescription plan. The pharmacist called the company and spoke with them for thirty minutes with no avail. I ended up having to call the company and spend another thirty minutes. I feel like I always have so many problems with insurance companies. Sometimes I feel like they make it difficult to get in touch with them just so they don’t have to pay your benefits!

Hubby’s Gift?

Guest post of the week by Quincy Rowe

I had the hardest time thinking of what to get my husband for Christmas this year and part of it is because he already has everything he could ever want. He as the hardest time telling me what he wants which mean I just have to guess. This year was different though because for the last three months he’s spent just about every waking moment at his friend Benny’s house and now I know why – Benny’s got Directv packages that get all the games! So for the holidays I’ve gotten my hubby the best package I could find and I know he’s going to be OVERJOYED. He’s really into basketball and with the strike just about over I know he’s going to love it when he opens up the picture of the satellite dish I wrapped up for him to open on Christmas morning! I can’t believe we haven’t thought of this before now but I guess it’s better late than never, you know what I mean?hubby gift

Setting the stage for scary Halloween decorations

Guest post written by Bill Roades

One of my favorite things about fall is that you can really spend a whole lot of time just decorating with a whole bunch of scary decorations. It really is a great thing and I love seeing other people’s reactions to it. My family would never really decorate our house for Halloween besides a simple little jack o lantern and I always wished that they hung up some really scary decorations like some of our neighbors.

Does surfing and tennis even go together?

Being a tennis player, dating a surf crazy guy like Harry had made me want to start up the sport myself but it seemed easier to just sit and watch from the warmth of the vacations homes nearby. I had to admit I was a wimp when it came to getting in the cold sea which wasn’t a great start to my surf career. So you can imagine my shock when I came home one night and saw Harry grinning and holding up 2 matching body glove wetsuits “Damn it!” I told him that was my only excuse for not getting in the water and letting him teach me this sport I had idly sat back watching for the last few months.

Interestingly enough the first thing I noticed about my new wetsuit was the fact it had handy pockets for keys something that had always worried me about surfing alone. After this discovery Harry asked if I had any intention of trying it on! Of course I was pessimistic about getting most wet suits on as it had always seemed a stressful procedure that certainly did not look flattering on a beach in front of the Harry and his surf friends.

Luckily Body Glove is way ahead of me when they designed wetsuits for women. Conveniently placed zips increase the likelihood I would be able to independently get my wetsuit on without a team of assistants. So here I am on my third surf lesson and strangely enough I haven’t even noticed whether the water was cold or not!

Retirement or play ball, Roger Federer needs to decide

Roger Federer ready for retirement?

Roger Federer ready for retirement?

Roger Federer is starting to look alot like Marat Safin lately. What happened at the recent loss at the Rome Masters? Federer wasted service breaks in the second and third sets. This guy has not won a tournament since taking the title in October at home in Basel, Switzerland. Their is a high chance he will go 12 months without a title.

“I feel like this is not a match I should have given away,” Federer said. “I usually don’t give away opportunities like this.” Of course Safina is getting irritated at her brother too. “He should put his whole heart into playing tennis or quit,” his sister Dinara Safina advised this past Monday.

Former world number one Safin has failed to win back-to-back matches in nine of his last 10 tournaments, often perishing despite being in a winning position. Sounds like what Federer is doing late.y.

The 29-year-old was knocked out of last week’s Rome Masters in the first round by Tommy Robredo after throwing away a 6-2 4-1 lead. “He knows he’s going to retire (at the end of) this year, so it’s tough,” Safina told reporters at the Italian Open on Monday. “I would say that if you want to retire, either you do it or you play. He doesn’t. So he should make a decision if he wants to play or if he wants to retire.

“He was supposed to (have) already retired last year and he’s still going. He’s a little bit unpredictable.” Of course so is Federer. Their are cries from his fan base to hire a new coach but it would be better if Federer just decided to put everything into playing instead of focusing on possibly losing each match.

It it time for Federer to retire or play?
