TV Tales....(from the Crypt)
It’s been quite some time since I’ve been writing here… a faux paus that I hope to fix here in 2014. Hope this finds you all well… Me and the future Mrs. are doing fine other than we haven’t gotten to spend as much time together in recent days as we’d like… The weather here in the mid-west has been nothing short of brutal. The snow hasn’t been the worst. But the ice, the wind and the cold have made life a nightmare for a lot of folks on the north coast and great lakes regions. In my case, I’ve gotten to watch more television than I care to and have gotten hooked on a couple of goofy shows as a result. My better half (aka “The BOSS”… with apologies to Bruce Springsteen), well her TV tastes have infected me just a wee bit as I have now gotten more interested in a show that I swore I would never want anything to do with… namely, The Walking Dead. I feel so slimy after I watch it because of all of the gore. It drives me nuts but she just can’t get enough of it. I watch it now when she does so that we have a little bit of television in common. I find myself watching that dang show every week now when it’s on. It’s starting back up in a couple of weeks and she is so stoked. It scares me because I am sort of looking forward to it also. What is wrong with me?? I have a couple of Canadian shows that I enjoy watching also… (Artic Air, and Republic of Doyle). But she has zero interest in my shows. She says she does not like anything Canadian because she hates the cold. That is her rationale. I just roll my eyes and say ‘why bother’? The other show that she has got me hooked on and into her evil clutches…lol… is “Once Upon a Time”. She absolutely loves that show and I am digging it too. WHY? I should just give up my man card for the love of all that is good and kind! Of course, the one show that she got me to watch first was the drama/ comedy… Castle… I even watch the reruns every day on TNT cable when I come home from work. Someone please help me… Castle and Beckett… CASKETT!... aaagh! Helllllllllp!
