There 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.
