I just gotta say.
Sometimes I really just want to stare at the television. #1 choice is, duh, Law & Order
. Then House
. Once in a while I'll get lucky with reruns of Seinfeld
or The Office
If nothing I like is on, and I really don't have the energy or desire to do anything else, I'll stoop a little. CSI: Miami
is usually top on the "ugh, I guess it's OK" list. The cheesy Horatio character and ridiculous sets and outfits worn by serious "crime scene investigators" in the field (yeah, stilettos and a low-cut top, that happens!).
Anyway, I have seen an ad for this one show a few times, and I do not know WHAT KIND OF MOOD I WOULD HAVE TO BE IN to stoop to that level. I mean, I've watched Charmed
before, I'll admit it. (TNT, can we get real with the "drama" thing? I mean, "the drama of Charmed
My point: They have a show now that is called Parking Wars
About the Parking Authority of Philadelphia.
Show description: This series takes an inside look at the men and women who work for the Philadelphia Parking Authority. They attempt to break down stereotypes of those who hand out parking tickets and tow away vehicles.
People getting towed. Giving parking tickets.
THIS is what constitutes entertainment on television these days? My lord...
And, I mean, if any of you have seen this show and like it.. I believe it. I would imagine it has to be entertaining (?!) to some degree to get on television at all.
But if I am ever tempted to choose a show about PARKING ATTENDANTS over real life, just shoot me.
Same goes for that Wii ad that is coming on all the time now. I've seen two.. one shows chicks on a rainy day playing this game, but the other is in, like, Costa Rica or something. The lady is choosing to stay in and "shop" on Wii instead of going outside & experiencing real life. Yeah, okay.
Oh, did I mention - I'm going to Costa Rica for spring break. :) I think I'm going to rent a super telephoto lens this time. And we're skipping the diving, so it'll be a week of just Monteverde & Manuel Antonio. :) :) I keep saying how I want to go back... It's kinda weird how I can miss someplace I've only visited once, but I miss the way it feels
there. (Driving the Interstate home from the airport after our trip was like sensory overload, in a bad bad way.) I'm surprised Chris is willing to go back a THIRD TIME (he went one time before we went together) but he assures me he'll bring plenty of reading material so I can breathe in the air and take pictures all I want.
