  1. Cool post!Great blog. What about following each other?

  2. the new normal looks pretty funny. and the carrie diaries looks like such a cute idea! if i watched sex in the city i would totally watch it!

    1. I never watched Sex and the City, but I think I might still check out The Carrie Diaries.

  3. I'm sorry but 1600 Penn is exactly the type of show that I get super incredibly excited about. I hope it's told in an "Upstairs, Downstairs" or "Downton Abbey" style. I refuse to hear otherwise until I witness it for myself.

  4. Goodwin games. I really need something new and I love comedies.Such a good blogging about subject . Would you love to follow each other ?:)
