Grey's & Who is yo Mama Post

I'm going to cover both Grey's Anatomy & How I Met Your Mother in this post. Then I'll watch Lost and go to bed (don't you love Tivo/DVR?). I'll post my Lost thoughts later after I find them.
Ok, first How I Met Your Mother:

Great episode. It looks like Ted has actually found a girl that will put up with his stupidity and his past obsession with Robyn. Now, the question remains, will she put up with his current obsession with Robyn. Hmm...only time will tell.

And what did you think of the whole most embarassing stories plot lines? You kinda knew Ted's would involve his obsession. Now Marshall & Lilly's story of having sex while Marshall's mom was still on the phone was funny as hell. I don't remember what Robyn's was, so it couldn't have been that great. And Barney's story was, well, BAD-F'ING-ASS!!! Barney goes from the lovey dovey hippie who is saving himself for one woman for marriage. She leaves him for a dude in a suit and that leads us to his story arc, i.e. how he went from coffeehouse/hippie/pussy Barney to Suit-Up!/yuppie/tail-chasing Barney. (for those of you upset with the "p"-word in the previous sentence, change it to "girlie-man" or something like that. I'm not PC) Barney rocks. Everytime you think he may have some serious depth with a sensitive layer, you realize that it was destroyed years ago by some cheating hippie chick.

Ok, onto Grey's Anatomy (very quick recap):
I thought it was a good episode. I'm glad to see George finally had his heart broken by Meredith so he can move on. I mean come on, did anyone really think they would get along and live happily ever after? (I really hope I didn't conflict with what I said in a previous post from last week). Quick props:
- Good job for that one doctor to give her number to the broken-hearted George.
- Great job to the writers for not showing us what happened between Meredith & George in the bedroom. We got to watch what happened in the hospital before the bedroom (reverse chronological).
- Good job to Burke for 1. giving George a place to crash for now & 2. pushing Christina's comfort zone into a smaller and smaller space. Last week she gave up her safety net (her own apartment). This week she has to share her place with a down & out coworker who she obviously gets along with but, had they never been coworkers, she wouldn't be friends with. She seems kinda like a social climber to me. Don't you think so? I mean you can tell she is really competitive and all, but the more I think about her character, I feel that if I knew her socially, she would use me and everyone I knew to gain in the social world.

Side question: where does a social climber head? Everyone I have ever known will try to use you to meet new people and when they are done with you or the other people, they seem to make it a point to lose touch. So will they ever reach their goal? I mean if they are using people to meet new people, how are they supposed to "move up" if they keep pissing off everyone they meet? Hmm...

- ok back to it (sorry) Great job to the writers for making Izzie & Christina side with George, even though they (and we at that point) didn't really know exactly what happened in the bedroom. But I thought that was realistic. And how about dude's comment to Meredith: "When you get drunk, you sleep with inappropriate men. That's what you do." I can't ever remember his name, he's the guy Izzie is/was sleeping with although now the patient with the bad coronary heart and the good character heart is back. And how is that for a monkeyed up metaphor? He has a great emotional heart, but his physical heart is weak and needs to be replaced. Man that is something that makes you think. I know it may be a simple little idea, but it makes you wonder, if someone is full of love and positive emotions, will that put any type of strain on his or her physcial heart. Or is the strength of his emotional heart what is keeping his weak physical heart pumping until they get a donor heart? Hmm...

Ok, I'm going to run and watch Lost.

Quick update for the weekend: I have no plans yet. Anything fun going on? Remember I'm not one of those hipsters so I don't know if I'd fit into a DJ show or anything like that. Or should I lay low this weekend and save my money? Or will I just wait until something sporadic goes down. Or will I be lame and pack my apartment and move? Hmm...
