Soooo, I noticed a new 25 minute Arms/Abs class at my gym and decided to try at last night. 25 minutes! AWESOME, right? It was 25 minutes of torture but I loved every second. I'm telling you this because I got home at 7:45pm and couldn't move my arms. I also was so exhausted that I fell asleep before I could attempt to get my thoughts down on my laptop. Who am I kidding? I couldn't even lift my laptop.  The fact that I'm able to type this AM is a miracle. Normally when I watch way too much, I take notes. Couldn't do that last night which means I am relying on my horrible memory this morning. So rather than go in depth the way I normally do, here's what I've got. We watched 3 shows last night: Quantico and Homeland from Sunday and The Great Christmas Light Fight. Quantico is a conundrum for me. I love it and am always totally confused by it. I have to stop and go back a few times EVERY episode to figure stuff out. Okay so Alex isn't the bomber, great. She can keep wearing her tight low-cut outfits while she tries to figure out who is before she's sent to the slammer. But wait...didn't the FBI tell her she really wouldn't go to jail since she's actually innocent? See what I mean? They told her to start surveillance on her own team, the team who's been helping HER through this insanity and then of course when they all found out she'd been watching them they were pissed. I have a feeling the bomber actually IS one of them. The question is...which one? Everyone has secrets and stories and it's just so hard to keep up with it all. The one chick with the fake scar,Nimah, the one twin, who visited the terrorist dude, Simon, who met with a guy that builds bombs,  Shelby who's sending millions to a secret sister and sleeping with her boyfriends Dad. It just keeps going on and on and on. Seriously, is it me or are the writers making this one overly complicated to screw with all of us and see how much we can handle? I don't know. I do love it but I am baffled on a weekly basis. 

2 awesome things about Homeland. Saul lost it, big time, on Allison and thankfully, Quinn IS alive. Gotta give Carrie credit, she really can handle anything. She watched Quinn's video a few times which wasn't easy to do and then when she was looking for him, she really didn't seem scared to go into those creepy places, in the dark, to find him. Of course she did find him and again, HE IS ALIVE which means I'm still going to watch. If he dies, I'm out. I still wonder every week when I watch though, when and where does Carrie renew her prescription? Do her pill some in the mail? What address does she use? When does she take her pills? I take 5 vitamins every day and it's a pretty OCD kind of thing for me. Does Carrie have one of those MTWTFSS pill boxes? Where is it? I don't want her to go off the rails but I do enjoy when she does sometimes, just because Claire Danes plays crazy so well. Anyway, just a thought. Does CVS have stores outside the US? Don't think so.

Season 3 of The Great Christmas Light Fight was cool but here's the thing, it's now getting a bit out of control. Computerized light shows with fireworks, a castle built over an entire house. The prize money and bragging rights can't be worth it, can they? I didn't love the new hosts, but to be honest, I couldn't tell you the names of the old ones, so I'm sure I'll get used to them in the few weeks this show is on for. Don't you think they should have a Tournament of Champions at some point? Bring back all the winners and let America vote for the best in the country? Just a thought ABC! Also...maybe up the prize money so these people can afford their electric bills for these insane displays.


The Grammy Nominations were announced yesterday. I captured the bigger ones below. I'm thinking Taylor Swift and The Weekend will walk away with a boatload. I was just happy to see Sam Hunt and "Girl Crush" nominated. The show airs on 2/15. Don't worry, I won't take an arms class on Grammy night. Both arms will be in perfect working order  to cover the show with no problem.
