Today was the first day of “reading days” for me, which meant that I didn’t have classes, but was supposed to be studying intently for my exams. I … spent most of my morning in bed either reading, feeding my internet addiction, or sleeping. Then I watched last night’s “Venture Brothers” episode that I missed because I was having a party. My afternoon was only marginally more productive as I spent an hour tutoring english at school. Almost everyone else I know that I’ve spoken to today described how they were as “stressed”. Me? I’ve still got another 24-48 hours before I get stressed. My first exam is a take-home due Thursday by noon. I’ve got acres of time, or so I currently think, but check back on Wednesday to hear a screed about how I’m such a terrible procrastinator and there’s no time left for anything and how in god’s name did anyone ever let me into college much less grad school. For this evening though, these are my distraction options:

8:00 p.m.: “Carrie Underwood: An All-Star Holiday Special” on FOX. It lasts a whole two hours, so get excited. Or get angry, since it’s preempting “House” and I know some of you ladies get mighty irritable if you don’t get your weekly dose of scruffy Hugh Laurie acting like a jerk while gazing balefully out of his very blue eyes.

“How I Met Your Mother” on CBS.

“Little People, Big World” on TLC.

“One Tree HIll” on The CW.

8:30 p.m.: “Accidentally on Purpose” on CBS.

“Little People, Big World” on TLC.

“Monday Night Football: Baltimore Ravens at Green Bay Packers” on ESPN.

9:00 p.m.: “Alice: Part 2” on SyFy.

“Cake Boss” on TLC.

“The Closer” on TNT, 5th season winter premiere.

“Find My Family” on ABC.

“Gossip Girl” on The CW.

“Intervention” on A&E.

“Two and a Half Men” on CBS.

9:30 p.m.: “Big Bang Theory” on CBS.

10:00 p.m.: “Castle” on ABC.

“CSI: Miami” on CBS.

“Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” on Food Network. This one’s called “A North Pole Christmas” and it’s a one hour special. I guess that means that Guy is going to eat food with heart-stopping levels of grease and fat in cold places?

“Hoarders” on A&E.

“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC.

“Men of a Certain Age” on TNT. Tonight’s apparently the pilot, and I could’ve sworn this show had already started, but maybe that’s just because I’ve seen about a million commercials for it recently.
