Can you believe September is over? That means I have coupons expiring! I’ve got to hit the store tonight. Last night it was my usual, strange Monday mix of stars dancing and robots walking. Dancing with the Stars was up to the challenge of a new week (that Lance and Lacey kiss was hot stuff!) and Cameron lost her memory on The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Did anyone catch the premieres of Chuck and Lifelast night? I saw them both on the On Demand sneak peek and thought they were great.
So much TV, so little time.
