Morning Coffee (9/1/10)Morning Coffee
Happy September! I am THRILLED that it is September, because I hate summer (have you noticed?) but I am also extremely bitter because it's going to be 98 today and that is NOT proper September weather. Also, my laptop is going in for surgery today, so please think happy motherboard-replacing thoughts.
Last night, the President gave an Oval Office address about the end of combat operations in Iraq, but OBVIOUSLY the big story is that he redecorated the Oval Office. (I like the new look well enough, for the record.) Murkowski has officially conceded to Miller in Alaska. And people on Cape Cod are being dumb talking about how much they love hurricanes and how they won't evacuate. Good luck with that! And - oh, fine. Entertainment Tonight is doing a behind the scenes thing of the Emmy opener, so I will give in and TiVo it.
Oh! Vanity Fair has a Sarah Palin profile out. It just came out so I haven't read it yet, but Roger Ebert tweeted that it's "devastating," so there you go.
I'm assuming that anyone who wants Grey's Anatomy spoilers heard the big news yesterday, but if you somehow missed it, click here.
I hate to say it, but I agree with every bit of this post about Emily Deschanel's look at the Emmys.
There's going to be some sort of 3D Nutcracker movie. With Elle Fanning and Nathan Lane? And new songs by Tim Rice? Is it not a ballet? Wait, is it a musical? What on earth is going on? I can't decide whether I'm excited or terrified.
Wait, haven't we read this John Le Carre story about assassinations in the Cold War about three times already? Why does it continue to be news?
Chad Lowe got married. Brother Rob Lowe was the best man. Aww.
The creators of Gossip Girl are making a show about twentysomethings in DC. I am cautiously optimistic.
The new Preppy Handbook sounds rather disappointing.
Gmail's Priority Inbox sounds nifty. Can't wait to try it out!
TV Squad agrees with me: Rubicon is not boring.Posted by Kat at September 1, 2010 09:00 AM
