So Much TV, So Little Time

October 28, 2011 at 3:20 am Leave a comment

I’ve been on my couch since 7:48pm. It’s now 10:02.

At 8pm, our other new favorite show comes on. “Person of Interest”, starring Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson. We intentionally get the kids in bed by 7:30 on Thursdays, just to watch this show.

At 9pm, I watch “The Mentalist”. I love the character of Patrick Jane, but Michael isn’t a fan, so he usually leaves me during this time.

Tonight, however, the World Series is on, as well as the local high school game.

It’s all just too much. Not to mention, I have my phone right here, plus the old laptop, so between all the television, texts, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter, I’ve been more connected than ever.

Yet I’m sitting in my living room alone.

That’s just weird.

It makes me miss college, when there was always a group of people watching tv together. I don’t think I ever saw an episode of “Friends” alone. I guess if a show is called “Friends”, that’s kind of the point, right?

I do have an observation from all the couch sitting and television viewing tonight. Volkswagen has the best commercials. If I had money, I’d totally buy a Jetta, just because they’ve sold me with the advertising. Way to go, VW.

It’s the top of the 8th inning, and the Rangers are winning. That’s a really good thing. The World Series reminds me of why I love baseball. I don’t watch regular season, because I can’t invest the time, but baseball is such a great sport. I’m impressed by the skill and self control of the players. It’s not flashy or aggressive or in-your-face like football or basketball (but I like those, too). It’s a smart sport, and fun to watch. Plus, I married a baseball player, who is also really good at explaining things, so that helps.

I’m fading fast, and my eyes hurt from all the watching. I’m probably going to dream about cops chasing baseball players who are secretly preventing crimes because of numbers generated from a machine.

I’d watch that.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
