15,944 Minutes And Counting…

girl reading a mapThere was a time when, on Wednesdays, I would not go out.  People were not invited over on Wednesdays.  If someone did come by, they were unceremoniously (and without apology) kicked out by 8:55 pm.  I would not answer the phone or the door and the children were not allowed to talk.

Since May, 2009, though, Wednesdays have not been the same.  I watched So You Think You Can Dance.  I can appreciate talent.  The dancers had plenty, the judges had none.  I would often find myself playing Scramble on Facebook while glancing half-hearted at the television every now and then.

In the fall, a new show called Glee started airing on Wednesdays.  I can appreciate talent.  The kids could sing.  I liked the music.  I really liked coach Sue Sylvester, played by Jane Lynch.  She kinda reminds me of me.  She had some really funny lines that actually made me laugh out loud (my favorite: “You’ll be adding revenge to the long list of things you’re no good at, right next to being married, running a high school glee club and finding a hairstyle that doesn’t make you look like a lesbian“).  After a couple of episodes, I realized that I only really watched when Sue Sylvester was on.  The rest of the time I just kinda listened to the songs while playing Word Twist on Facebook.

I was lost without Lost.  Hope is in sight though.  In 15,910 minutes, Lost airs its premier event.  I can’t even begin to imagine what life will be like after May, 2010.

  • Love “SYTYCD”… Love “Glee”… “Lost” required too much of a commitment. Yep. No mystery reason why I’m single.

    Only 15,153 minutes left….

  • Oh my goodness, you sound just like one of my daughters. I am not sure about Glee and the Dance show, but she loves Lost. I tried to watch it once and well just wasn’t my cup of tea. Hope your 15 thousand minutes go by quickly, but not to quickly, as you get older you wish for time to slow down a bit 🙂

  • Your daughter sounds like a wonderful person!

    The only show I really try to watch is The Big Bang Theory. It always makes me laugh. I watched Lost the first year religiously. I was going through my second divorce at the time and it was a wonderful distraction. By the second year things had settled a bit and I didn’t catch it as often. I have missed it since then. However, I do want to catch up and watch this final season because I have read that it is really going back to the feel of the first year, and everything will be resolved.
