I got inspired by my own comment that I left at the blog party that, saddly, I was forced to miss (this is me being repentant, again, Master Fob.)
Back to the point, though.
I hate television. Almost with a passion. I think it's pointless and I can hardly stand sitting in front of something just staring at it for hours at a time. After about ten minutes, I tend to get bored.
When I was little, I'd watch Sesame Street every afternoon. I don't know why I did it, except that my mother would turn it on whilst she prepared my lunch for me. The only parts I liked, though, were the ones that had the actual "story line;" I'd go into the kitchen during the "commercials." My sister, on the other hand, loved television. She still does. Sometimes I think that she doesn't know the difference between reality and what she sees broadcasted. She would come home from school every day and go straight to the TV to watch things like Gargoyles, X-men, Spiderman, Batman, and so forth. Not to mention Power Rangers -that show seemed to hold a special place in her feet. I mean heart. (There's a funny story there: she was pretending to be Kimberly- was that her name?- the pink one and kicked my mother in the foot, probably breaking it in the process.)
Sometimes, when TVLand was still in existance, I'd watch that when I was cooking or working with my clay. Monk I also find entertaining, but even then my hands have got to be doing something after a while.
Now, though, I find myself in a strange, new situation. I LIKE a show enough to watch hours of it on end. Maybe it's just because it's summer break and I'm bored already and I'll do anything to keep myself entertained, but this I doubt because I've got a load of books to read (which just so happen to still be sitting in their BYU Bookstore bag- very unusual). Or maybe it's because I find Jarod to be highly attractive, but much to old for me.
Is it the sense of Justice?
His child-like wonder at the world around him?
No idea, but either way, any way, and all ways, I find that I'm entertained. I guess everyone has to like one show in their lifetime. I hope this qualifies as my quota.
P.S. It's plenty warm here in Santa Horhe. I expect the City Pool to open within the week.
