Some Decent TV Shows

In recent years, in my opinion, tv has, well, sucked. The music reality shows have totally run their course, in my opinion.. American Idol, America’s Got Talent, So You Think You Can Dance, etc.. You get my drift, they have all run out steam. The only “reality” shows that I like are jail and police documentaries, and cooking reality shows.¬†Hells Kitchen and Master Chef are really good shows.. But to me , the top cooking show is Top Chef. Those contestants sure can cook.. WOW. Out of the jail and police ones, I thoroughly enjoy The First 48, Lockup, Hard Time, and Jail. Besides those shows, there are some pretty good shows on TNT that I have found. Memphis Beat is a great show, starring Jason Lee. I have been angry ever since NBC cancelled My Name Is Earl, and I am thrilled to see Jason Lee back on the small screen. Believe it or not, I have also found myself enjoying the legal comedy “Franklin and Bash”. I had no idea if I would like the show or not, but I really find myself enjoying it. The only other show that I religiously watch is Louie. By far, the funniest show on TV and I highly recommend it.


It’s race day

Well it’s a rainy day here in North Carolina. Luckily there are 2 races on today. The Nationwide race and the Truck race. I don’t know if these would actually be considered the finer things, but oh well. I like it and that is all that matters


Day 2

So I am stlll getting used to this blog thing. I am not used to writing everything every day about my life. But I think it could be good for me. Let’s see if I continue to do this

My New Pen

So I received a new pen and some ink today. I am very excited about it. I have been using a Lamy Safari for the past 6 months, and recently decided that I wanted something a little heavier. So I went on my favorite pen and ink site (, and purchased a Stainless Steel Lamy Studio with a fine nib. I also have always wanted to check out Noodler’s ink, so I bought a bottle of Noodler’s Blue American Eel ink. So far, I could not be happier. What a great choice I made. Here are some pictures..

Hello world!
