Holiday Spirit Season 3, Episode 10

The Ice Storm It was a surreal week leading up to Friday night. I'd lived in Wisconsin half my life, and never thought in a million years, I'd face the worst winter of my entire life in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After so many winters watching snowdrifts hit sixteen-plus feet at times, I'd never spent more than a few hours without power [and heat and hot water] during those Wisconsin winters. Last week, I was without power for three days. Some Tulsans are still without power, a week later, so I will level with you: I feel silly exerting effort writing a blog entry about a TV show while other people are still dealing with this hideous weather fallout. However, this is my blog, so I don't feel silly admitting my gratitude for making it through the week with a pretty positive attitude, for having my power [and heat] back, and for having my TV back! Last week, I found out that I survive just fine without TV [it's music I cannot live without thank Jobs for the almighty iThingie], but at the same time, TV is a huge plus in my life [not to mention my job!], and I'm very grateful that my shows are now waiting for me during a much warmer, sunnier week. I gotta tell ya, nothing helps a person escape better than ghost-vampire Friday on CBS. Ahh... It was almost as good as a hot bath ending the week with Ghost Whisperer and Moonlight. My Internet connection was very intermittent throughout the weekend, so I decided to wait and post this entry on my lunch hour today. Yes Melinda, There is a Santa Claus... When I read the synopsis for this holiday Ghost Whisperer episode, I was fully prepared for cheese. I thought, "Oh great, one of those holiday 'filler' episodes... I can hardly wait." But you know what? I actually found this to be a genuinely charming holiday episode! I thought it was creative and heartfelt without being overly sentimental. It had a good sense of humor, an original premise, and an adorable little boy as the most sympathetic character. The real story behind the ghost's letter was so sweet, and instantly made the "Scrooge-y" central character likable. I even like it that the "Santa" character never crossed over, and loved it that only children [well... and ghost whisperers] could see him. All in all, it delivered just the warmth I needed to end a very cold week. Or was I just desperate for TV? What did you all think? J. Love's Bikini Photo Finally, I wanted to devote a little bit of this entry to give a "shout-out" to J. Love and her gorgeous figure. I cannot believe people were writing catty blog entries about her weight after the bikini photos wound up all over the Internet. Have you seen the photos? How are those photos "unflattering?" Jeez people, if that's "huge," then society's concept of beauty is even more doomed than I'd ever thought. Indulge me, Ghosties. ------------ Dear Jennifer Love Hewitt,You are beautiful. Your neckline is a work of art that never fails to amaze many of us, both male and female here at the TV Guide Ghost Whisperer blog. Furthermore, your arms and tummy are firm and muscular, and you've got a comic book super heroine's hips and thighs. You should be proud of your body! It's natural, it's lovely, and I'd give a lot to look like you in a bikini... a lot... and most likely, so would my husband. Just remember: it's not easy being a Goddess! -Jeannine ------------ Online Video Guide Need Ghost Whisperer video to tide you over during the holidays?

Premise: Newlywed Melinda Gordon tries to help the dead communicate with loved ones, 'but sometimes the messages she receives are intense and confusing.' Most of Melinda's efforts involve resolving conflicts that are preventing the spirits from passing over. The sentimental drama is 'inspired by the work of medium James Van Praagh.'
