Dear Other Snowflake -
Pretend you are the sorting hat. Which house would Missy, Amy, you, and I be in? In addition, what are our patronuses?* You may repeat houses (ie, have more than one of us in the same house), but obviously not patronuses. (*I never promised my questions would be original). To get you started, and also because I think it’s hilarious, here’s the Glee kids (the only change...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 14
FAVORITE MEREDITH & CRISTINA MOMENT I’ve already mentioned some moments that are my favorites (see Day 1 and Day 9). Basically, any time one of them goes to bat for the other or they have a funny interaction with each other is a favorite moment. The only time their moments aren’t my favorite is when they’re mad at each other (except, when Cristina loses it and yells at...
ER or Grey's?
This is too hard! It’s the Sophie’s Choice of medical shows on TV that I like. To chose, I have to make lists of why each show deserves to be picked: It ran for 15 seasons. It had an incredible cast: Anthony Edwards, Noah Wyle, George Clooney, Julianna Margulies (the only one who ever won an Emmy for acting!), Gloria Rueben, Eriq La Salle, Sherry Stringfield, Maura Tierney,...
Hi, Other Snowflake
Welcome to my blog. Now make one of your own.
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 13
COUPLE YOU JUST CAN’T STAND Gizzie. Ok, so they were a couple for only a few episodes, and Shonda never intended for them to be a “good” couple, but they were the worst. This is a stupid question because this challenge is clearly meant for hardcore Grey’s fans, and I’m about 100% certain that I wouldn’t be such a fan if there was a major and lasting...

FAVORITE COUPLE Current couple: Calzona Past couples: Cristina/Burke and Izzie/Alex Couple-that-could-have-been: Cristina/Jackson
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 11
MEREDITH/DEREK OR ADDISON/DEREK This is a trick question. How am I supposed to pick which couple is better when we’ve never seen Addison/Derek as a functioning, happy, not-just-post-cheating couple? We’ve gotten to know Meredith/Derek for the last 7 years. All we got of Addison/Derek were flashbacks and like half a season of “trying to make it work but Derek really just pined...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 10
LEAST FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER Because I’m trying to do this without “cheating” (meaning I can’t pick a not-so-important or not-currently-on-the-show character), this question has me stumped. All of the male characters I thought were annoying were either killed off (e.g., George, Mercy West resident whose name escapes me, and Denny), or kicked to the curb before they ever...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 9
FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER YANG. Obviously. Because of her talent and (undisguised) ambition. Because she has an MD and a PhD. Because of her snark and bluntness. Because of her relationship with Meredith. Because of her cool leather jackets. Because she doesn’t have baby fever. Because I loved her and Burke, and I’m conflicted about her and Owen. Because Sandra Oh’s...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 8
McDREAMY OR McSTEAMY? McSteamy. I wouldn’t actually want to date McSteamy, what with him having 2 kids (especially Sloan Sloan), being a whore, and sleeping with his best friend’s wife (then later, sleeping with said best friend’s new girlfriend’s sister after being told to stay away). But he’s definitely the better pick over McDreamy. While both McSteamy and...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 7
FAVORITE “SERIOUSLY” MOMENT (a moment that shocked you) When the gorp guy turned out to be George. (sadly, he never looked better than he did here, the last time he was on screen - for once his hair wasn’t all shaggy and annoying. and the uniform is kind of hot.)
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 6
FAVORITE QUOTE Two of my all-time favorite quotes I already talked about in Day 1. Meredith’s “you don’t get to call me a whore” speech was the first time I can remember jumping on the Meredith train. I like when the women put the men in their place on this show. Also, I think Cristina calling Meredith “my person” is definitely an important moment on the...
A Childhood Without Tumbling?!
My favorite quote from last night’s second Modern Family episode: Mitchell (after learning Claire put him in the dryer as a child): Is this why I’m afraid of tumbling? I HAD TO QUIT GYMNASTICS, CLAIRE! Phil (to Jay): A childhood without tumbling? You knew this and just stood by and did nothing?
Clearly the Best Use of My Time. . .
… is to watch hours and hours of TV each week~~ Sunday: The Good Wife Monday: The Closer (starting Nov. 28) Rizzoli & Isles (starting Nov. 28) Tuesday: The Biggest Loser Glee Parenthood Southland (starting Jan. 17) Wednesday: Up All Night Criminal Minds Modern Family Law & Order: SVU Cougar Town (starting Apr. 18) Thursday: Grey’s Anatomy Project Runway ...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 5
IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT THE SHOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE? All the stupid intern storylines from the year Lexipedia was an intern. Including and especially anything relating to Sadie. Unnecessary. Which just got me thinking - Grey’s is usually pretty good about story continuity and non-forced-feeling character development/growth, so why no explanation of where all those interns went...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 4
CALLIE & GEORGE OR CALLIE & ARIZONA? Easiest question of them all - CALZONA! First and foremost, I never got what Callie saw in George. He was just so… whiny. Nor did I understand why she married a guy she knew didn’t love her the way she loved him. Why did she think so little of herself? Unlike George, I like Arizona as a character, independent from Callie....
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 3
LEAST FAVORITE FEMALE CHARACTER It’s probably cheating if I pick Nurse Olivia because she wasn’t a main character, or Dr. Reed because she was only around for a season, but could they have BEEN more annoying? So my least favorite full-time cast member is Dr. Kepner. At first she was annoying with no redeeming qualities. Now she’s still annoying but has become a more...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 2
FAVORITE MALE CHARACTER Process of elimination: McDreamy and McSteamy are great, and both have their moments, but neither are in the running for my favorite. I loved Burke but he’s been gone for the last 4 years, so I guess he’s out. George, absolutely not. Never. The Chief is one of the rocks of the show; without him the show would be less awesome, but he is also out. I could...
30 Day Grey’s Anatomy Challenge - Day 1
FAVORITE GREY’S SEASON AND WHY Four of the many, many reasons why Season 2 is the best (followed closely by season 6): (1) The entire original cast was still there (I never loved George and Izzie got too annoying with the whole Denny storyline, but the rest of them are perfection) … … and some of the best additions to the show came in season 2. (2) It had some of the...
