forgive me. i'm about 10 miles past boredom.  
First of all, to all the new LJ friends who had added me a while ago and I only just now added you back -- yeah, my bad :p Nothing personal, I wasn't sitting around with a pro/con list debating whether or not we could be friends. I just fail that hard at keeping up with my notifications. I don't get emails when someone friends me (and prefer it that way), but that also means I often don't even notice someone has done so until weeks later when I get bored enough to look over my own profile page and notice the "Also Friend Of:" list. Whoops! Anyway, I'm all caught up with y'all now and excited to enjoy the new TV season with you guys <3

So it's the long weekend and instead of going back to NYC or out to Arizona or trotting around LA like I usually do every year on this weekend, I'm sitting at home telling myself I can use this time to finish packing for the move and (most importantly) finally start making some headway in my studying. Except that I've done none of that. Shocking. This is what happens, okay - it's the start of the new semester and also the last few weeks of TV hiatus. These are NOT good weeks for my productivity, because my brain is finally reaching the brink of impatience over waiting for new episodes of my shows while at the same time school is not yet intense enough to scare me into making a real effort. So even though I have a 4-day weekend here to get ahead in my studies, I'm probably just going to continue sitting here all day and all night, refreshing every website pertaining to my favorite shows as if they will suddenly and magically provide me updated news/spoilers/photos that weren't there when I last refreshed 30 seconds before. My life is incredibly exciting, isn't it?

But like I said, this is just how it is in these last few weeks of hiatus. Premiere week coincides oh-so-rudely with my first week of exams AND moving into the new house, so everything will get really busy and thrilling in both fandom and real life at the same time.

TO SUM UP: LIFE IS BORING AND TV NEEDS TO HURRY UP, MMKAY?

I'm glad to know there wasn't a pro/con list. :) I'm also having a hard time waiting out the last stretch of hiatus. The whole Chase/euthanasia thing is basically the only thing I'm capable of thinking of. Two more weeks! And three more until some C/C!

And I see that you have a love hate relationship with Grey's. I think I might be done with it this year. Which is really sad because during seasons 1-3 I was super obsessed.

Dude, Chase/euthanasia and Chase/Cam angsting & fighting for weeks and weeks both have total ownership of my life anymore. I am so frickin' stoked. All I keep thinking about is that the press release for the premiere finally came out last week, so by this Friday we'll have one for episode 3, then next Friday one for ZOMG EPISODE 4 AND PROMO PICTURES. I can't stand it, I'm craving new CC scenes so badly I could almost cry :p

*is pathetic*

Yeah, Grey's and I... I don't know anymore. I still love Der/Mer, but Shonda can't seem to avoid completely pissing me off with them no matter what she does. My post-it note rage has still not subsided. Cristina/Owen are precious and I really hope they can get focused enough to keep me interested in the show. And Alex/Izzie are my heart and soul on that show, so I basically just keep watching for them and perhaps I always will. Hard to say. I'm very wary of all the new changes coming up, so we'll have to wait and see if my fangirl relationship with the show can withstand all the things I'm disliking about it.

I can't even begin to imagine how amazing this season is going to be. The euthanasia arc is going to break my heart, in a good way. A friend mentioned today that she wanted Cameron to have a baby, and I'm still hoping that storyline will pop up in some way this season or next. Chameron babies! <3

I used to be so hardcore about MerDer. And the post-it! AH! That was the dumbest thing Shonda has ever done, and she's done some stupid things. I've been in love with Alex/Izzie since day one and I'm glad they're married, even if it wasn't realistic. I think this season I'll watch it online the next day; I'm more excited about The Office and 30 Rock.

Yeah, the arc is going to absolutely rip my heart out and throw it across the floor, then jump around on it and laugh. And I guarantee you that I'm going to fucking love every single second of it, LOL. As for Chaselets (as they are officially termed now), I expect a baby arc either by mid-season, season finale or next year at the latest. Even if it's a miscarriage arc the first time around -- I fully expect the baby topic to come up pretty soon, since they made it pretty clear how much they want kids.

I got into Grey's because of MerDer just like almost everyone else, and I still love them but they're just getting exhausting since Shonda won't solidify them and move the plot forward. Like you, I've been an Alex/Izzie shipper all along. I called them from the pilot and have been waiting and waiting for them to finally be the real deal, because MY GOD the Denny/Ava/Rebecca and *vomit* Gizzie plots made me want to kill someone. Thing is, as soon as Denny died I knew it was only a matter of time before she was with Alex again. They just had to stall so she could have time to heal from it. I can't wait to see how the reality of married life and Izzie *not* dying affects them now :) I'm sure it's going to be a fabulously angsty ride.

Oh, episode 4 is just going to be amazing. I guarantee that I won't do anything constructive the week before or after that episode. The press release will be coming out soon, yes? And the Chaselets are going to be the cutest kids ever!

Gizzie! Blech! I actually liked Denny, but I hated their relationship. And Rebecca/Ava was so stupid! I was so glad she wasn't pregnant. There's a new sneak peek on ABC.com but I haven't watched it yet. I'm curious about how the premiere will be, with George being dead and all.
