Test post from my Windows Live Writer software. Thanks to Little Miss Kessa’s entry, it had me tinkering immediately with my laptop trying to figure out how to access it on my end. I have a lot of catching up to do in the world of blogging. I’ve missed two Team Carnival entries already so I vow to make up for it this week.
My previous week just had been so busy. I interviewed for a internal job hiring just out of gut feeling. Man, I forgot what it felt like to be interviewed again! ^_^ I had butterflies in my stomach the entire evening that I thought I’d pass out. Here’s hoping this week will be a stress-free one.

How can you not love royal weddings? Aside from having me wishfully thinking I was a member of royalty myself, I find the "true love conquers all" mood generally appealing. So when Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden got married over the weekend to her fiance of eight years, Daniel Westling, I just had to google photos of the event. Sadly, the royal guests were mostly in their mid-thirties and I highly doubt anyone from Carl Philip and Madeleine's age group was present. Too bad the British princess (William and Harry) were off in South Africa for the World Cup, eh? :)

But like a typical Pinoy whose idea of sport is either basketball or boxing, my dad is apathetic to our FIFA fangirl tendencies. He'd rather watch the NBA Finals than figure out who'll score a goal first in a football game. :)

DAWSON'S CREEK - Way back when Katie Holmes was still likeable and Joshua Jackson was still Charlie Conway (and soon, Pacey Witter) for everybody . This, was a staple Tuesday morning discussion at school during my college years. Nevermind if Tabing-Ilog "sort of" ripped-off its concept. Come to think of it, this show most likely introduced me to the concept of 'shipping wars way before Harry Potter ever did. I mean, who among you here were on Team Dawson? or Team Pacey?
CHARMED - Ahhh, The Power of Three. What I loved most about the show was how it dealt with sibling issues together with the advancement of their powers. Who wouldn't want to be part of the Halliwell sisters? The girls managed to juggle good looks, awesome jobs and hot guys with their lifestyle as witches.
FRIENDS - Six people with distinct personalities stuck with each other for ten years to show us just how far friends go for the people they love. I watched this mainly because of my love for Mondler. But one can never deny that Phoebe Buffay was the real scene stealer.
GLEE - Despite the continuity issues and the hype surrounding it, I love Glee for making me remember what it was like to be in high school again and to be so idealistic in achieving what you want from life.
CRIMINAL MINDS - Unlike CSI, the team is not after the evidence but rather the behavioral background which prompted the unsub to commit the crime. Profiling is my dream job. So much that I like practicing it on my officemates or just anyone at random. I love what the team does for a living and the fact that they get to help solve some crimes is an added bonus. Too bad we have no Behavioral Analysis Unit in the country... or is there one that I don't know of?
I really have a lot of favorites, but these are shows I can actually sit through an entire season of. How about you? What are your favorite TV shows?

My only peeve was that three days was too short a time for the two leads to fall in love. Had this been a Korean drama, all those angst over the fake marriage would've been stretched to 16 episodes. But hey, suspension of disbelief for the hopeless romantics at heart! This is totally going to my must-have DVD collection.
Speaking of hot guys with comedic chops... who knew

Of course, the movie's dynamic duo once again steals the show with their effortless banter. The subtle reference to Zorro never gets old ("Giddiyap, Donkey!") even with Puss as a fat tabby while Donkey reminds us more and more of our pet dog. This got me hysterically laughing over the scene where Donkey was complaining about being compared to a bloodhound because, according to him, he was no dog.
I will definitely miss the series. It has been a good ten years with Shrek and the gang. But fans will be pleased that a prequel is in the works for Puss-in-Boots (I want one for Donkey, too!). Over-all, Shrek Forever After is a fitting swan song for a movie that taught us fairy tales aren't just for children after all.
