Onto more "nothings" that are "somethings" in my life...
If what I was about to write about was placed in a separate post, it would have to be titled "Shallow Excitement".
A disclaimer before judgment is passed on me: I KNOW more EXTREMELY important things are going on in the world right now - life, death, war, peace, fervent attempts to cure cancer, contemplating the cosmos, many prayers going up for needed miracles. I HOPE YOU KNOW, deeper things are going on in my little minuscule life that I choose not to blog about AND that this blog is only scraping the surface of our lives and we (hopefully) are not shallow, "the world revolves around us", kind of people.
I just can't help getting completely enthused about the upcoming fall season of television! WHOOOO-HOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't believe I watch a whole lot of TV - most of the time it's on in the background while I'm taking care of business and is little more than white noise breaking the quiet and keeping things from becoming too monotonous.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is a big day for me and my good friend, the boob tube. It marks the beginning of a very thrilling primetime with my two all-time favorite shows coming back. Throughout the next month, more shows will be returning with new episodes. Just another reason fall is by far my favorite season.
The "CHOSEN FEW" in order of my level of enthusiasm for them:
#2 - The Office
#3 - Desperate Housewives
#4 - Private Practice
#5 - Ugly Betty
#6 - House
#7 - Jon and Kate Plus Eight
(One of the shows that has gotten me through this year of television drought - there's no writers, hence no writers' strike and their life is always happening, so they're always filming, always new episodes to entertain me. God bless them.)
OKAY, so maybe I do watch quite a bit of TV, but I don't care. No justification, just shallow contentment for me and my fellow TV junkies. I couldn't leave out a classic though... it's possible that I could trade all the above shows if this one could continue on forever. It will always be my favorite, the one that could make me laugh when I was down, the one the I can connect any life circumstance to something that happened in one of the episodes, the one I watched the DVDs to over and over and reached the most annoying level of quoting every line that anyone has ever reached.
#1 of all time:
May you rest in peace.
This concludes my entirely one dimensional post on all things superficial. =)
