Now is about the time of month I actually start to try and figure out what I’m going to be buying people for Christmas which I realizes is probably not the best plan. Part of the problem is that, since I grew up around the mid-East Coast I have a hard time accepting the idea that Christmas is around the corner when the weather here is still (mostly) mild and sunny. The other problem is that I’m a very list oriented person, so I put all the more immediate things (finals, papers, work, bills, eating, etc.) on my mental list before Christmas shopping so by the time I get down to it I’m usually out of money and running the risk of all the good gifts being sold out. So, if I’m supposed to be buying you a present for Christmas this year, my sincere apologies and here’s your Tuesday night TV:
7:00pm: “Inside the Actor’s Studio: James Franco” on Bravo. Mr.Franco is one of those odd people who the more I learn about them, the more confusing they become.
8:00pm: “Glee” on Fox. Christmas episode, which probably means it’ll be more sacrilegiously flamboyant than those glitter covered Mary and Jesus statues I saw at Borders a few weeks back. That reminds me, I need to go buy them.

“One Tree Hill” on The CW
9:00pm: “The Biggest Loser” on NBC
