I’m really wishing I had saved Nosferatu and the Flowers for today, because it would have made such a nice Non-Sequitur Thursday post. Now here I am with nothing. Additionally, Boston Legal is on the television. I haven’t seen that show in years and I love it! I don’t have one of those streaming services where I can just binge watch shows t my leisure. I have to depend on finding re-runs on cable. Anybody opening their mouth to snort, “First world problems” can just shut up. I am not complaining; I am delighted to have found this show. I was merely explaining my situation.
I wrote that first paragraph during a commercial break. Another good thing about cable television: long commercial breaks. Some people do not see this as an advantage, but sometimes it can be quite handy. One can take a bathroom break or go get a snack. Some commercial breaks are long enough to do both. Score! I know, if you are watching a DVD for example, you can hit pause, but then you have to find a good leaving off place and sometimes I am just not that decisive. In your more advanced cable services, you can pause live television and doesn’t that make you feel like you’ve gone back to the future! (Michael J. Fox is guesting on Boston Legal, by the way).
The other thing I am wishing is that I was writing about this in the TV Journal. I have made only sporadic entries in our TV Journal lately. I mean to get better about that. I mean to get better about writing in general. You may have noticed, I’m having the damnedest time with it lately. I started earlier to write about that, because after all, writing about not writing is still writing, but quite frankly, I am tired about writing about not writing. I want to get back to just writing.
Probably a good start for that would be to turn off the television. Well, maybe I could just watch the rest of this episode of Boston Legal first…
