Morning Coffee (2/2/11)Morning Coffee
Don't even talk to me about this groundhog nonsense. We're in the middle of a snowstorm, and there's never not at least six more weeks of winter, anyway. Snowstorm does mean I get to work at home, so that's something. I mean, work is the same, but I can do it in my pajamas and it's more convenient to make tea. And I can take a lunch break to watch The Good Wife later.
The Cory Booker vs. Rahm Emanuel shovel-off is worth watching.
ABC picked up a DC drama from Josh Schwartz (of Gossip Girl). This pilot season is really shaping up nicely.
Ricky Gervais: invited to host the Globes again. Oh boy!
I don't care about reality TV, but this story about Survivor leaks is fascinating.
Robert Pattinson in a wedding ring. You know, for a movie.
I guess this is a Politico self-spoof? Or something? Hilarious, anyway.
This paragraph was the funniest thing I read all day yesterday:
Can a show be too dreamy? I ask because I'm unable to watch White Collar on a regular basis, mainly because Matthew Bomer is just too damn dashing and his eyes are just too easy to get lost in. Before I know it, it's 2 a.m. and I've missed Conan. So what will happen to America now that Paul Blackthorne is regularly appearing on the show? Will entire segments of the population simply stop going to work? Will there be swooning outbreaks in suburban neighborhoods nationwide? Could Bomer-Blackthorne Syndrome grind our country to a halt?It's a totally valid concern!
A post-apocalyptic Persuasion retelling? I'm . . . guardedly interested.
If you aren't reading Alex Balk's daily weather reports, you're missing out.
2012 DNC: Charlotte.
Tyler Perry will play Alex Cross, which . . . I feel like I should have more opinions about than I do, because really, I tend to just roll my eyes in Patterson's general direction.
