I love TV. I don’t understand how people can live without a television, because I love the feeling of getting lost in a show and yelling at the characters. I get invested in the storylines and am super sad over the summer when there is NOTHING new to watch besides a million episodes of House Hunters.

To give you an idea of what I like, here’s what my current Tivo list looks like:
Once the audience calmed down, Margie looked back at Og, who was flipping through the film clips of her life - lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to 15 minutes, the clips were a representation of timeline altering moments. There really were a lot of them, and some of them were seemingly insignificant. Like the day she argued with the used bookstore clerk:"I don't understand, so…you can take these books, but you can't take these books.""That is correct," the clerk said....more
You know what really pisses me off? "If you don't want naked pictures leaked, you shouldn't take them." If you've paid any attention to the news lately, then you know about the nude photos of some of today's biggest celebrities that was stolen from the iCloud app....more
So there was Friday when we were held up in the house over the rain, followed by Saturday morning and early afternoon where we were held up in the house because I was sick. Then there was Saturday late afternoon while it was still light out that my migraine began to diminish....more
Everyone has a favorite quote, line of text, or bit of a song that inspires and motivates you. Words have a powerful effect on the human psyche, whether written, spoken or sung.

Lessons learned from Frozen During a visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studio this past summer, we took part in one of the Disney Animation Studio classes. I had no idea who the character was that we drew – it was just some snowman named Olaf....more
Growing up in the 70s, I was exposed to so many interesting and memorable television characters. Some of my friends saw themselves as the next Bionic Woman; some wished they were one of Charlie’s Angels. Laverne and Shirley. Rhoda. They all had such vivid personas, but the one character that really stood out in my mind was Horshack: the dweeby, nerdy, needy kid on Welcome Back, Kotter. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the guy, and I couldn’t help but identify with him....more
In the summer of 1977 the biggest movie of the summer was Star Wars. I had been eagerly tracking the progress of the film's opening through various fan magazines, and was not disappointed when we finally went to see it, on Long Beach Island (at a theater in Beach Haven, which alas, is no more). My family were all big science-fiction fans and loved the movie, from the corny crawl-titles at the start to the space battle at the end.
