Now I haven't been tagged for this, but I wanted to post something else and I couldn't, as my connection today is UTTER CRAP, and does not allow me to use picnik.com to crop pics etc.
So I found this on abbzzw's blog and thought I would give it a go:

Lost, Prison Break, Weeds (eventhough the last season really lost its mojo), Gossip Girl, The secret life of the American teenager, Family Guy is awesome, the Simpsons, House, ER, Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory is hilarious....as you can see I'm a tv series junkie. so much so I am writing my final thesis on the translation of those
