Stayed home sick from work today. It’s not bad, just feeling a bit too under the weather to manage the office today. So as I lay on my couch like a potato, flipping through the channel on the TV, I realize that most of the day time soap opera’s are gone. WTH? Talk shows, talk shows and more talk shows, a couple of game shows and that is it. I was kind of looking forward to a little blast from the past and catching up on what happened to whom with a little bit of drama and POW ! They are pretty much gone.
I am really not interested in the ones that are left, so thank you cable, I can still find something interesting to watch. Animal cops? Nope, not in the mood to cry over the poor little guys today. History channel has some show about trains in America on. Nah…too much thinking trying to retain the information ( habit I cannot break) So I guess it is either cartoons, news or a movie. I think the movie wins, since one of my favorite flicks is on. Dirty Dancing ! Yay me.
Ok, not really but I am about to lose my fucking mind. The political crap going on right now is totally mind blowing. You have to just love watching the news every day because there is one scandal after another. I cannot fathom how people who stand up and preach about honor and fidelity and morals and have absolutely none themselves. Politicians are the absolute worst people. There is non stop corruption in our government and the whole system needs to be revamped. Especially the way we vote and the party system itself. As I sit here and watch the news I am disheartened by the violence as well.
There are so many people hurting not just each other but their own children. How the fuck do they justify what they do? Sometimes I wish the reporters would just stop. Stop reporting all of the bad stuff and give us more of the good. I know we can’t get away from the political spectrum but the rest of it we could definitely do without. At least the weather is nto that bad and we have had a mild winter so far. I think I will turn off the TV for a while and read a book.
I bought a brand new flat screen TV and it fucking rocks ! There is nothing better then a new purchase for a persons home. Even better when it is something like a new TV. It is an LG forty two inch LCD TV with HD and a built in DVD player. Oh yea, this bad boy is going to play the Super Bowl with style. I think I will have a Super Bowl party when it’s time. A few of the guys over and a lot of pizza and beer. That sounds like a definite plan.
I can’t wait till NASCAR starts. Watching the races on my new TV will be much better then the last TV I had. It was the worst. Now I don’t have to worry about it and I will be able to enjoy a few of my favorite programs better then I did before. Especially as I watch Dale Jr. kick ass around the track this season. Maybe we can get lucky and Dale and Jeff can put a Bush out of business. That would be nice. Hell, I might even have a few NASCAR get together’s this season. I think it would be lots of fun.
The cool thing about September is that all the major TV networks bring out their new shows for the season. Every night of the week is show premieres. I have to pay attention to the TV Guide listings so I don’t miss anything good this week. I am just going to be a couch potato and watch TV this week and next week until I have seen all the premieres and can decided what shows are going to be worth watching.
By the looks of things we are in for some pretty cool new TV shows that will be starting soon. I don’t watch that much TV but if there is something that peaks my interest I try and watch it when I can. Summer reruns are a real drag and there is so much to do outside during the summer months that I don’t feel the need to sit and watch the “boob tube” but with the weather changing and it is changing quickly it is nice to know that there will be some decent programs to watch in the evenings for a change. Guess we will see shortly what is what.
