So I have a new idol. Shonda Rhimes, the creator of Grey’s Anatomy.

I always watch Grey’s Anatomy and for me this time is sacred. It’s a mini vacation, a respite for an overworked body, a time when I can be still for more than 5 minutes and be thoroughly entertained the entire time. This is one of my few guilty pleasures in life.

I actually left work early yesterday, raced home and wolfed down dinner, prepared to spend the next hour on the couch figuring out what the hell is going on with George and Izzie.

Imagine my surprise when I saw it was a rerun.

Death, destruction, chaos and mutiny. Why, why, why! Whose idea was it to leave us hanging until April 19th for a new episode?

But in the midst of my despair I must give out recognition to Shonda Rhimes for her mastery at keeping us all on the edges of our seats, because that is what good entertainment is supposed to do.

Even if it’s incredibly cruel.
