It's no secret.
I love summer. I shouldn't really be living in Canada. Don't get me wrong; I think I live in the best country there is, and I love Canada with all my heart. From May until September.
From October to April, I complain an awful lot.
I hate winter. The snow, the ice, the minus 30 temperatures. The coats, the boots, the hats, the fact that it's dark at 4 p.m. Sure, skiing is fun. Skating, that's okay too. The only reason I partake in those winter activities is not for the rosy cheeks it gives me - I prefer the glow the sun leaves on my skin, to be honest—I do it so my children can get some fresh air, and for the beavertails and hot chocolate.
I get a serious case of SAD from about now until spring. I can't help it. I start worrying about winter in July. As I'm swimming in the pool, enjoying the hot sun on my body, I can't get rid of the depressing feeling that winter is just around the corner.
I know most of you do not share these feelings with me. You all embrace fall and the beautiful leaves. But really. Fall is just a tease, because although it's nice, it's the start of something horrible. The long, cold winter.
I get through the winter months by going to Florida. There is nothing like stepping off the plane and being greeted by the beautiful palm trees and blue ocean. One week a year is never enough, but I'll take what I can. I have decided that I should move to Florida. I just have to figure out when!
Another way I survive the winter months? With a lot of good TV! The only good thing about summer being over is that all my favourite TV shows are back.
And Grey's Anatomy!
And Desperate Housewives!
And Modern Family!
(Also, I'm in love with Entourage. Why, oh why, is there only one season left? And Ari? Poor Ari. And Vince? GET IT TOGETHER, VINCE!)
So, the season finale of Grey's was great. It had to be great, because Grey's is spectacular at their "HOLY SHIT! DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?" season finale moments. I thought last year's season finale was good. Incredible. Edge of your seat awesomeness. But I liked the year before even more. The last scene, with Izzy in the elevator? And George? AND GEORGE!!!! That episode freaked me out. I still have it recorded on my PVR.
The thing that bothered me about the most reason season finale of Grey's was the fact that not one single doctor had a cell phone. NO iphones or BB's? No Twitter? Can you imagine how much less damage and carnage there would have been if our friends at Seattle Grace had Twitter?
@LittleGrey Holy shit meet me on the 3rd floor by the elevators!
@Teddy I need you, like YESTERDAY, Derek has been shot in the heart!
@McDreamy I'm pregnant. I love you. Stay safe.
@Cristina I love you, I choose you. I CHOOSE YOU.
@McSteamy I'm covered in Reed's blood. Someone shot her! I'm in the supply closet!
Anyway. Maybe they'll all get iphones for Christmas or something. Surely they make enough money, right?
Tomorrow, Glee is back. I know I'm excited—are you? What else are you looking forward to seeing? What shows will keep you warm during the winter months of misery? What is your favourite snack to enjoy while watching your favourite TV show? And what new show should I add to my line-up this year, and why?
