There are no commericals in my life because I DVR all my favorite shows. So while the rest of the Sons of Anarchy fans were experiencing their devastation at the sudden loss of Opie two nights ago, I was already asleep.
I was completely unprepared for that awful fight scene last night. Ugh! I'm still stunned. The SOA writers have been outdoing themselves. Heart-wrenching, heart-pounding, breath-holding television. Yeah, it's that good.
I've been escaping as much as possible. I can only take so much of the streaming political news and banter which comes with it, then I have to take a break. Keeping a balance is good for our mental and physical health, right? These are a few of my favorite time-passers of late.
It's a fact in life, everybody can't be liked by everyone. I do not like Alex Trebek at all. Especially as I've gotten older I've noticed how much he annoys me with his faux-non-political hosting of a game show I really enjoy. I'm figuring his retirement from Jeopardy can't be far off, so I'm hanging in there.
But as for Judge Judy Sheinlin, the little firecracker from Brooklyn? I LOVE her. She's totally one of my heroes!
"Umm is not an answer!"
Yeah, Judy rocks.
Rachel Ray? Eh. The perkiness is a little over the top. But I can't deny my affinity for her 30-minute meal recipes. Hats off to her for constantly finding new shortcuts to preparing comfort food.
And as always, I'm reading. Lately I've also been hanging out at Goodreads.com. If you're on there, feel free to add me as a friend via my email (at the bottom of my sidebar).
During the in-between time on all these escapes, ideas are popping in and I'm jotting them down. So even as I appear to be lollygagging, a post (or two or three) is brewing.
That's my truth and I'm sticking with it.
Damn you Kurt Sutter! Ugh! My heart is still broken :(
