A Wasted Life in Pixels

As if my life isn't already consumed with enough boobtube time, I've now fallen head first into Grey's Anatomy. I've been following Run, Momma, Run and have been equally mystified that not only does the woman not have TIVO and no doubt still listens to The Best of Chicago on 8-Track, but intrigued by her obsession with yet another handsome-male-doctor-sassy-female-resident series. On a lark, a whim, an off-chance, I popped over to Itunes and downloaded Season 1 and 2 onto my Video Ipod. Over the past two nights I've spent nearly nine hours glued to a 2x2.5 inch color screen squinting my brains out as Derek and Meredith flash pure adorability in each other's direction and even now I'm salivating as I think of the remaining 27 episodes of Season 2 that are waiting for me.

Darn that momma!
I do not need this. Why?

Wow. Having it all written out like that makes it look like I have no life beyond television.

Oh well. Too bad. So sad. I can't sit around here moaning about it all night when Season 2 awaits.

Hey now, don't be knocking the 8-track! And for the record, it is Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" I've got in there. ;-)

Good luck on Sunday--I hope you find a way to push through your injury and finish.

Uh-ho. Busted. I didn't know you uh...well er...I wouldn't have said...mmm....SO...Pink Floyd...EXCELLENT choice!

And Jeanne, the Video IPOD is indeed great....just a little hard to fully enjoy an episode of The Office when walking.
