You know you love me...xoxo

This is the kind of news that makes me happy:

"The CW has announced renewals for six series for next season.

Coming back will be "Gossip Girl," "One Tree Hill," "90210," "America's Next Top Model," "Smallville" and "Supernatural."

"These six shows have clearly contributed to strengthening our schedule and our brand identity,” Dawn Ostroff, president of CW Entertainment, said in a release."

I love Gossip Girl- LOVE IT! I admit to DVR'ing 90210- it's a good show to watch when there is nothing else on. I've never gotten into Next Top Model- but you never know!!

Brendan and Patrick love the Britney Spears song, Womanizer...or "Bugernizer" and Patrick calls it...
And yes- I was driving while I recorded this- however....the camera was resting on the passenger seat and I wasn't zooming or anything....I was NOT being dangerous

25 Things About Me

About Me:
1. I’m addicted to celebrity gossip- love me some TMZ, Perez Hilton…
2. I love NASCAR
3. When I’m nervous, anxious, bored or deep in thought- I pick at my finger nails…I’ve never had long ones
4. I have a bit of obsessive compulsive disorder in me…shocking I know…but it runs in the family!
5. I once broke a giant fish tank with a baton- it was on accident- I think.
6. I once hit my sister in the face with a baseball bat- it was on accident- I think.
7. I think Tina Fey and I would be best friends if we ever met.
8. I’ve met lots of celebrities in my life; Britney Spears, Michael J. Fox, John Stamos, Rebecca Romijn, Levar Burton, Scott Hamilton, Michael Damian, Donny Osmond, Nsync boys, 98 Degrees boys, Matt Laur, Brian Williams, Tony Bennett, Samuel L. Jackson, Tiger Woods, Huey Lewis, James Avery (Dad from Fresh Prince), Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding!), Tia and Tamera, thanks to my Disney Days..the list goes on and on…
9. I never thought I would survive with boys as children- since I had two sisters. But I can’t picture my life any other way and wouldn’t trade it for the world. All three of my boys are the best things that have ever happened to me.
10. I generally, don’t like people. I have lots of friends…but really only a few good friends. People mostly see me as outgoing- but I find myself socially awkward.
11. I really do love my job. I like putting things together, trying new things, knowing news first and doing things others only dream of. It’s just hard to remember that it’s cool sometimes!
12. I am deathly afraid of bridges. Mostly bridges that open up- like drawbridges…But I’m also not a fan of long causeway-type bridges- which means I will never visit Key West- unless it’s by cruise ship- because I won’t drive and I won’t fly on a tiny plane.
13. If I could get away with it- I would swear my pajamas or my robe ALL DAY LONG everyday of the week.
14. I am trying desperately to loose weight. I have come to realize that I haven’t “worked out” since high school gym class- so I’ve become somewhat of an addict to working out lately- and will hopefully soon see some results.
15. I am almost 33 and still get acne like a teenager.
16. My parents had a kegerator in our basement growing up- I miss it. One of my best childhood memories is going with him to the liquor store to get a new keg…because they had the best lollipops.
17. I desperately miss our home in Northbrook, Illinois. I have dreams all the time about that house- I lived there from day one until I went to college.
18. I have been lucky enough to never had to work in food service. I don’t want to touch food, plates, or anything nasty that people leave at a restaurant. Most of my jobs…since high school…have been in television!
19. I can’t sleep until everyone in my house is home. If Scott works late- I’m up until he gets back. I can’t relax until I know everyone is safe. I get scared at every noise until he’s home. I’ve been that way my entire night and don’t think I have EVER slept alone (and I’m not talking about the bed- I just mean in a house)…expect in a hotel room- but that’s different in some weird way.
20. I write for a living- and still don’t think I’m a good writer.
21. I’m really good, and I mean REALLY good, with directions. I have a weird visual memory thing going on and pretty much never get lost. You can thank my dad for that.
22. I’ve seen Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at least 28 times- and all have professional productions of the show. I could act it out for you- but would need to be really drunk!
23. I secretly wish I could perform on Broadway- but I can’t sing, have little coordination to dance- and really, can’t act.
24. I took figure skating and bowling in college.
25. I will not go into the water unless there is chlorine. I have a major fish phobia.
