"I Can't Stop, 'Cause I'm Having Too Much Fun(?)"

OK, that's one adjective I wouldn't exactly use for Season 9, but since "What The Hell" was next on my list, I figured, um, well, you know...

Anyway, there were promo photos added for next week's "Mother!", and most of them involve the Dunphy story.

"Let's Talk This Over - It's Not Like We're Dead" (First Impressions - "Mother!" - Season 9, Episode 20)

So, does Alex have a big story in the next episode?  Not really.  Does she have a small one?  Yes, I guess:

"Love That Once Hung On The Wall"

Yes, this is one of those times this month when the blog title isn't going to have anything to do with the post subject - I couldn't really find a line from "Let Me Go" (my 5th favorite Avril song) to fit this one.

The last three episode titles have been released, and it's been confirmed that the Season 9 finale will air on May 16th:

“All I Wanna Do Is Lose Control(?)”

OK, I won't go that far, but I am definitely not a happy camper after tonight.

I probably should have taken it as an omen that my worst fear from this morning would come to pass when I got stuck with a “wait a second I just remembered I needed something else” customer to finish my shift (which took a lot longer than a second, of course), causing me to miss my bus. I did get home with a couple of minutes to spare before the show started, but now I wonder why I bothered to stress out about it.

So dubious history was made tonight, as Alex went missing for the fourth time this season, which has never happened before.

The worse part is I still don't think tonight is the last one, even with only three more to go. That prediction of five Alex-less episodes I made before the season started is still very much in play.

Of course we'll now have to wait three weeks (at least – no definitive word yet on what's up for May 2nd) for the first “opportunity” for that to happen.

Well at least I am getting tomorrow off for working today. That's about the best I can do for now.

“And We're Never Gonna Change”

Too bad I can't say that line to “Here's To Never Growing Up” applies to my work schedule – I had to trade shifts so I'm working today (I'm supposed to be off tomorrow to make up for it, but I'm not certain that part will still be true by the end of today). I should be home in time for tonight's episode, “ChiPs And Salsa”, so hopefully the rest of my routine will fall into place.

“We Were Made For Each Other” (“Daddy Issues” Recap)

Well at least the lyric from “When You're Gone” I chose does have something to do with two of the stories tonight and wasn't totally random – it just doesn't have meaning to Alex's part.

Tonight was a case of putting Alex in the wrong story. I know I've been looking for a story about Alex mentoring Lily about handling life as a smart person, but tonight she could have been a different kind of mentor.

“What's Wrong, What's Wrong Now? Too Many, Too Many Problems.”

So, it's now April, or, if you're in France or other places that speak French (such as parts of Canada), Avril. Three years ago, during this month all of my posts came from lyrics from my favorite singer, also named Avril (Lavigne, of course). After a two year hiatus, I've decided to bring this theme back for this year's month of Avril. This time, I'm going to start with a lyric from my favorite Avril song, “Nobody's Home”, and work my way down through the list (e.g., tonight's recap will feature a lyric from “When You're Gone”, my second most favorite Avril song1).

Each time I'll try to find a lyric relevant to the post topic (which I try for normally), but it won't always be possible so expect some random lyrics to crop up this month.  And also I know I've used lyrics from many of these songs once already so there will be second go rounds for many.

And the first lyric mostly falls under that category – while this post is about the pre-show post for tonight's “Daddy Issues”, I couldn't find a lyric to “Nobody's Home” that will relate to anything I'm about to say. On the other hand, the one I chose does fit in with the way life has gone for Alex this season (yes, she's had way too many problems to deal with since September), so it's not totally random.

Anyway, back to tonight.
