Everybody's Favorite Surgical Interns and Reality

I'm fascinated by Grey's Anatomy. Really, I am. This is partly because the show takes place in Seattle, partly because of the witty writing, but mostly because of the surgeons.

Like so many people in this world, I am enchanted by doctors, police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, and really anyone else capable of saving me from certain death. I affectionately call it the "rescuers complex." It's a thrilling concept, that the one person you are sharing your most intimate moments with is also the one person who, in a grave emergency, could save your life. The beautiful twenty-somethings in Grey's Anatomy only add to these little reveries... Thank you, ABC.

Best Holiday Ever. (Just kidding.)

My feelings regarding Valentine's Day are actually pretty neutral. As I am officially Valentine-less this February 14th, I chose to celebrate the holiday with a threesome: me, the snow packed around my car, and a shovel. After removing the snow left behind by the previous weekend's freakish nor'easter, the dog and I trudged back to our apartment to change into sweatpants and curl up with a cup of coffee.

To be honest, I don't mind being Valentine-less. I have a big furry black dog that likes to warm my feet, people scattered across the country who think I'm great, and a family that loves me. I do, however, mind all those Valentines that feel the need to flaunt their status as couples. Get a room. Get. A. Room.

I've just rediscovered my love of Seattle after having spent eight days enjoying all of the coffeeshops, bookstores, rain, family, and friends that the city has to offer. And now, picture time...

Seahawks stadium and ferry boats

Space needle and apartment buildings

... and my personal favorite: salmon.
