    Yesterday at work, a friend and I were talking about The Sing-Off and another friend mentioned that when she moved to her new house, she elected to not get TV (cable). She said “It means I get a lot of other stuff done.” And the friend I was talking to laughed, and he said, “The only reason to get stuff done is so you CAN watch tv.” Haha, and I loved that. Why get stuff done just to have more stuff to do?

    Person of Interest for me, and the Project Runway finale. And OMG…Rules of Engagement is still on TV?
