Anatomy & Physiology

My medication somehow makes it hard for me to fall asleep at night. My husband, on the other hand, falls asleep mid-conversation... after complaining for a while about how he should have been in bed 2 hours ago. He needs his beauty rest, you know *wink*.
While is was lying there, flipping over and over and over, I came up with all these great things to blog about. I was composing them in my head. I'm very eloquent while I lie awake at night. But alas, now it is evening the next day and I have hardly a memory of what the heck I was thinking about!

Lucky for me (and anyone else who happens to be reading this), I thought of another idea when I got to work earlier: Grey's Anatomy. I think it's the single best new show (well, second season now) on tv. I like the characters. Ellen Pompeo is great as Meredith Grey: she's pretty in the interesting kind of way, great facial expressions, her voice that's ever so slightly grating, a little gruff, but easy to listen to. Sandra Oh is hilarious and rude as Christina Yang; it broke my heart last week when she was finally ready to tell Dr. Burke (Isaiah Washington) about the baby and he just flat out dumped her. So sad! And of course, Patrick Dempsey. As Derek Shepherd, he is tough and soft all at the same time. Easy on the eyes, too. Before I get into that, my husband likes this show, too. The opening theme song is catchy and different and we love the way it transitions between pictures of intimate momments and doctor momments. The stories are great, covering an extensive array of emotions. I like how each show has a theme and Meredith narrates at the beginning and end.
Back to Patrick Dempsey... it's the HAIR. I love the hair. It doesn't hurt that he's ruggedly handsome, with clear blue eyes that twinkle mischeviously. The hair! Longish and styled to look like it's not styled. Perfect hair if you're a doctor who could be up for many hours at a time and might have to leap out of bed to answer and emergency page, or course. The hair does it for me!

Shhhh! Don't tell my husband! He might look even better with hair like that...

Monkey See

Well, I've been reading so many blogs, I don't know where to start. I get is in my head that I have to be clever, like so and so... I have to be witty, and interesting, and talk about this and that and everything else. What is with me? I can be myself, can't I.
Today, I took SE and SM to the zoo. The weather was nice: cool, cloudy, a little breezy. We took the umbrella stroller and SE pushed for a bit. Since SM is only 3 pounds lighter than SE, I took over after a while. We had a great time, except for the bonobo scare. They're both afraid of dogs and now they're both afraid of bonobos. I'll write about it another day since I'm short on time right now. Also, if I have more time, they story will sound better. I have to be on par with all those other bloggers *wink*!
