Addiction & Revulsion

I watch an obscene amount of television. I can try to deny it but the fact I have gotten into the habit of watching 2 shows at once and watching a previously recorded show when they are both in commercials speaks for itself. Instead of reeling in shame at my TV addiction and utter lack of a normal social life, I am embracing it. I watch shitloads of television, and I love it. I love TV more than movies, more than reading and more than you. That's right I said it. Things have been strained between us lately so don't act like you didn't see this coming.

I used to avoid shows I haven't watched from the beginning. Since I missed the boat on 24, Alias and Prison Break I wouldn't give them a chance. Not so anymore as I have recently added Grey's Anatomy, What I Like About You and My Name is Earl into the ole viewing schedule.
I also used to avoid shows I knew would be cancelled due to their utter awfulness and would be utterly heartbroken if something I loved was cancelled: (Birds of Prey we hardly knew ye). That too is a thing of the past as I am one of only 7 people alive who watches Out of Practice. The writing is usually terrible and the characters are completely one-dimensional but every so often they hit it out of the park, like when Oliver sees his newly-single brother buy a comic book and remarks: "If a girl sees that on your coffee table you might as well lay out a copy of Cat Fancy magazine and a bloody clown suit". This for reasons beyond my understanding sent me into hysterics.

On a side note, I would like to add a category to the previous Clio Awards post: Most Creepy. Have you seen the one where a mom is driving her daughter somewhere and the daughter asks her if she is still seeing some guy, to which the mom says yes. The daughter then asks her, "How is he?". The mom innocently enough says he's doing well or something and then the daughter says, "No mom, How is he?". The mom realizes the daughter (who looks 16) is talking about sex and they have a good chuckle, driving off in their new corrola, or camry or volkswagen or whatever car is trying to appeal to the "new family", I couldn't really tell since I was way too skeeved out to notice. What the fuck? Who asks their mom how her sex life is going? Yeah they giggle and drive off, but in real life what is she supposed to say? Oh yeah, for sure. Seriously, his tongue is like a cake mixer. I swear honey no one including your father has ever made me cum that hard". You're 16 you perv! Go play with your Rainbow Brite or put up some JTT posters or something.

if she's 16 in the ad, she's above the average age these days - http://www.thedailyaztec.com/media/paper741/news/2005/10/17/City/Sexual.Activity.Increases.Among.Youth-1022327.shtml
