New Girl

Season 1 of New Girl was so good that I became an instant fan after watching an episode.  I loved Jessica Day (Zooey Deschanel) and Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) even though their weirdness mades me cringe sometimes.  And though I hate to admit it, even the douchebag Schmidt and his womanizing ways make me laugh.  But now, I don’t know, the show has gotten so bad that sometimes I do wonder why I still watch it.

New Girl Season 2 is boring.  It seems like they ran out of good material for jokes.  Or maybe they changed writers.

I guess it’s time to move on to another  sitcom.  Any recommendations?

My love for stationery started when I was in grade school.  How old was I — 6? Well, I first had a  sheet of My Melody writing paper (or stay-shoo as we called it back then) that my classmate gave me and because I was an astute trader, I bartered my way into building my own collection.  Hello Kitty, Little Twin Stars, Tsukuba, My Melody, Kerokerokeroppi, Zashikibuta, Tuxedo Sam — the works!  I also had loads of those small note pads that smelled so good.
