My new favorite show is CSI. Not Miami or NY. Just CSI. Don't know why, not a real big fan of all the Crime Law and Punishment shows. Hate Law and Order (sorry to all those L&O fans).
CSI just holds my attention more. All those nasty shots of the guys guts. Entertainment in the purest sense. Well ok maybe not pure, but it sure beats the glossy shows (i.e. Newlyweds, vH1 Goes Inside______, anything on E!) that fill up my sick days and some lonely Saturdays.
I guess it could be worse. I could love soap operas. I've overheard conversations at the grocery store that went along the lines of "Ohmigod, did you know Damien was cheating on Mary-Margaret-Sue? With Mary-Margaret-Sue's TWIN SISTER Sue-Margaret-Mary?!?! And then the priest found out and someone shot him?! OHMIGOD!!". In today's world it's sad that I actually have to listen a bit closer to find the words "tomorrows show" to make sure that they are talking about a soap and not what happened on the 7 o'clock news.
I have tendencies to watch the news, crap on the Discovery Channel about why the Twin Towers fell (*that would be a plane hitting it), glossies (see above) and now CSI.
I think I may need more of a social life. Truth is most of my friends are settling down with that whole marriage/kids thing and because I have no real desire to do that yet, I'm home a lot.
Oh well. In due time.
*Please don't take offense to my 9/11 remark. Honestly I was there in NYC that week and it was the worst thing I have ever seen. I do not mean to offend anyone. I just don't understand why the media has to analyze everything about it. Yes it was built to withstand 75 mile winds, a light plane touching it, but seriously, that's not what happened. I don't need to see the entire thing every 3 months. I guess I should just stop watching it.

choose a book instead i suggest a total crashing of the things we see as historic victories "the real lincoln" by thomas delorenzo is a good start it tells of the start of corporate influence and contrasts the political times of lincoln in north manufacturing,money,arms industry,etc. south,soon to be taxed, taking(slaves), as you read it think of now rising taxes, no wmd's,ss diversion where'd it go close exam the same political tricks used them are coming back packaged as new. the parallels are 100fold read it. think bored you'll be bored.
