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.
