I was all set in my new decision to hate ER and not watch it anymore. But due to inertia, we started watching it tonight (in fact, we also watched Just Shoot Me which we never do due to the aforementioned inertia) and it turned out to be a well-written, insightful, funny, dramatic, moving, and all-around good episode.

I had one hell of a day though. I wrote up something about it here. It's not my best writing but I'm still a bit wigged out about what happened today so my funny isn't on right now. Maybe I'll rewrite it in a few days when some time has gone by and I can laugh at the events a bit more...(10:37 PM) ¶
