I want pie

I have fallen in love with Pushing Daisies.  I can't wait until Wednesday nights, so I can see the next episode.  Ned (Lee Pace) is adorable, Olive (Kristen Chenoweth) is awesome, and Emerson (Chi McBride) is probably my favourite character.  I'm still torn about Chuck (Anna Friel)... I like the interplay between Ned and Chuck, and I totally feel for Ned as Chuck is trying to figure out who she is.  At the same time, I get where Chuck is coming from, because I've felt the same way myself.  There's just something about her, though, that gets under my skin.  I think she might just be too sweet and perfect.  The character doesn't really seemed flawed enough to me.  What I probably need to do is watch the first season - maybe that will help round her out for me.

In related news, I've started downloading the Pushing Daisies Piecast (with Swoozie Kurtz).  There's all sorts of great tidbits on there!  It's cool to hear an opinion from the people who are actually in the show, and I love how excited she sounds about it.  Any show that makes the actors that excited has to be a good one.

In unrelated news, I'm trying REALLY hard to avoid buying from Handbag Planet.  Unfortunately, I did not win a free handbag in their contest.  However, it may turn out that this is a fortunate thing, because if I had, and the bag was as awesome as it looks online, I would probably have spent the rest of my paychecks there.  On the bright side, I do have an even 30 handbags now, because I got one for my birthday!  It's red and shiny... mmm... shiny...

This post has been oddly rambly... I'll aim for more cohesion tomorrow.  I'm going to bed now, instead of staying up until almost five (like I did last night/this morning), so that should help!

I still haven't watched Pushing Daisies--I'm afraid to because I'm already addicted to one too many TV shows!
