Did they just read about dogs in books?
I just watched Pushing Daisies last night.


Now I know how Kirsti feels when she hears Belle & Sebastian.

Congratulations to Laura and Shawn DeVeau, who finally got an adoption match after nearly two years of waiting for China to get its act together. With any luck they'll be back and ready to show off the kid when we're out there (Boston, not China) after Christmas.

A little on TV
How long before cutting-advocacy groups protest Heroes and Claire's constant testing of her abilities? I'd like to think we're far beyond the days of kids jumping off roofs trying to fly like Superman, but you never know.

Chuck vs. Reaper: JC weighed in on the dumb technobabble and general CIA/NSA implausibility of Chuck. All well and good, but remember that Reaper features the entirely-credible scenario of Satan existing and hiring mortals to return escaped souls to hell. So the playing field is pretty level, as I see it.
