Ang Paos and Nian Gao This Way

"Keong hee huat chye!"
Congratulations and be prosperous, you guys! The fireworks are starting early and I'm worried they might wake Marguerite up. With church tomorrow, I'm really hoping she'll sleep straight until morning. Anyway, to those who are giving out loaded ang paos (or even nian gao/tikoy), throw some this way, lol. Incidentally, happy hearts day as well! We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day (although that didn't stop me from doing stuff like this, but I see no harm in some light, fun observance - like decorating with hearts and dressing Marguerite in red tomorrow... 
Btw, they're showing "Nights in Rodanthe" on HBO right now and I'm wondering if Nicholas Sparks has a novel where he didn't kill off one of the protagonists. Oh wait. Did somebody die in "The Notebook"? I can't remember.
Speaking of HBO, they've been showing "Dan in Real Life" again. I just love that movie. I don't know that I agree with the loving somebody in just 3 days part, but as far as I'm concerned that's a minor detail. Hmm. Is it Steve Carell? Because I do like Steve Carell. The plot? It's okay. The lines? Sure. I think it's just the light, subtle comedy feel on top of the fact that the setting is so gorgeous.
Um, I love "Chuck" too. Also "Psych" (if I can find where they're showing it now that the Crime and Suspense channel has disappeared from our channel list). I'll definitely be following Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains too. And then there's my manic tuning in to the news channels. Methinks somebody should lock up her TV.

I have found that having digital TV with an antenna is curing me a bit of enjoying TV so much. Never know when a channel will stay in well enough to actually watch something so I get less involved.

So much for improved technology

lol sounds like a blessing in disguise. I can imagine the things I could accomplish if I didn't enjoy TV so much.:)

I haven't seen "Dan in Real Life" yet, but I love that Steve Carell. I'll have to check it out. I think he is so funny.

Haven't watched "Survivor" for some years, but might have to check out that "Heroes vs. Villians." Looks interesting.
