I stand before you broken and humbled. I’ve got one week to pull off this paper. I’ll do it, but my health and sanity may suffer because during this, I have to prepare for another paper and mark assignments for the 201 class. Then quickly finish off a revision for another paper. Then…then I shall faint dead away and watch not but reality tv and eat not but cheeseburgers and play not but WoW…for a day or two before I get back at it.
Hey..is that ‘not but’ or ‘naught but’?
So, my little hit counter says that I get more people reading me if I’ve got something to say…but right now I’m tapped out. I know it hurts my stomach to eat the past couple of days, which is probably not a good sign. I know that Facebook is really interesting when you’re trying to force yourself to read and that you can sign up for it when you’re super busy. I know that I’ve missed the last episode of Flavour of Love where he apparently picks Deelishus over New York because I can’t get used to the fact that TV runs on it’s own schedule and we’ve become Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert’s bitches. And I know I like cheeseburgers.
Actually, speaking of TV. Forgive me, but since we got it about a month ago…ummm…I still don’t see what the big deal is. I think I’m missing all the good shows (‘cept for the three mentioned above). I thought I’d see more documentaries and more clever comedies…but really, it’s just a bunch of reality bullshit. Don’t get me wrong…I like reality bullshit…but I don’t need to pay for it. And the Simpsons is lame now.
I thought, too, that I would see great old shows…like WKRP…and WKRP. Okay, and MASH. I heard, though, that WKRP is being released on DVD but they had to replace most of the music (including Jennifer’s doorbell) with other stuff. Really…I’m not sure I want to watch the edited version of WKRP. I’ve got a bunch of VHSes in the storage area with taped episodes (yes, including the one with Hoyt Axton) and I think that might just do me. Bah…copyrights and licensing. What crap.
However, I’m willing to make up with TV and wait it out until I have time to sit on my ass and watch it get fatter. Then I’ll judge.
