I'm with HuskyPup - got a mild, um, eCPM dump this morning. Now it's pretty much a regular day. Yay!
I think I've figured out why threads like these really help. They're like soap operas or reality TV. You snort at them at first, but then you get sucked in. They satisfy your micro-analyzing tendencies, they have both happy and sad mini-endings, and they're ongoing. And some of the stars go on to be Meg Ryan.
