First there was G.I. Jane, then Anatomy Jane. Who’s next economic crisis Jane?

Did any of you catch the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ episode last night? And yes that was a doll (anatomy Jane) that Meredith had since she was five years old but unknown to her, was buried along with her mothers things for years. Is this what our girls are subjected to as role models when they want to pursue their dreams? Anyone remember the G.I.Jane movie that was to inspire girls that they can do anything they put their minds to? I guess the idea is not so bad when your little girl wants to become a surgeon give her an anatomy Jane doll and perhaps she will be able to solve medical dilemmas. Sounds like a good idea, but I thought we had Barbie for that. Never mind, Barbie can never be as smart or as helpful as anatomy Jane was to Meredith last night. Sorry Barbie fans!

Okay the doll did help Meredith and the Docs solve a case of how to operate on an inoperable tumor in the child’s aorta near the abdomen, but really, a doll? Meredith is smart but I thought the writers kind of used a cheesy plot to get Meredith to solve a medical emergency using something that requires her revisiting her childhood that would require Meredith whining some more and wondering why she is soooo screwed up. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ but a doll? Is this how medical miracles made these days?

Okay, maybe I’m just upset about the whole episode with the pigs, Torres and Han, and Alex and Izzie. Well, at least Alex did sort of admit that he was jerk and that he needed help. That was kind of cute, and I always like a man who can admit his weaknesses.

Anyway, what do you think will happen next people? Is Meredith going to read all of those diaries that her mother left? Will she revert back to being clingy and whiny with Derek? Maybe, this will make her stronger. Perhaps she will find an all new reason to blame her mother for all of the things that are going wrong in her life.

I also missed ‘Survivor’ on CBS last night because I simply lost track of time and my children began hogging the living room T.V. while I prepared dinner. I am so bummed about that. I have always loved ‘Survivor’ since it premiered. I was never a ‘Big Brother’ fan, but I do occasionally watch ‘The Amazing Race’.

Also another newsworthy flash in the entertainment world, Ralph Macchio made a guest appearance on ‘Ugly Betty’ last night which my daughters happen to be watching last night. Will we see more of him, will the fans be asking for more? Only ABC knows.

I guess now that everyone officially has the sniffles, we will be in the house tonight.
No sugary treats or any tricks, just soup and crackers. What joy! I can’t wait to see their faces when I give them their dinner tonight.

Happy candy hunting everyone.
