Under Quarantine

Day 2

Under quarantine!

Yesterday afternoon, I left work early because of my illness. I informed my wife that I was headed home and she immediately issued instructions.

I slept off and on for the remainder of the afternoon.

I did continue my downward spiral into television addiction. LOST, and American Idol were the latest eightballs on my nervous sweating junkie low trance.

I don’t really get this show. I have been watching it off and on for the last year now. My Mom really tried to get me into it, so for her sake I begrudgingly watch. The acting isn’t all that good, the characters are not all that interesting, I really wonder why I watch this show. Then it dawned on me. It is so confusing, so mixed up, so perplexing, I watch it to see how it ends. That is the sole reason that I believe most people watch the show, to see what the hell was going on in the final analysis.

Never watch a show just because you want to see how it ends. It is a waste of an hour or so out of your life. Just think, if we were watching porn and the people were unattractive, and the sex scene was blasé, would you skip to the next scene of would you fast forward to the money shot. Okay, bad example, I am tripping on this medicine.

American Idol

I have never like this show. I do not care to watch hours of footage of people who cant sing. What is the point, to laugh at people, to participate in some mean spirited TV heckling? My wife and daughter love the show. I hear their laughter and cheers from the other room.

Alas, I am done with network TV for the night, I am off to either sleep or some soft porn on Cinemax.

I wrote that post last night, sense that time I have some new developments.

I am 90% at full health. Don’t ask me, I guess it was a bug or sinuses. I never had sinus problems before but a Dr. told me that you can develop them at any time. Then combine that with the fact that I live in South Louisiana, aka the Chemical Corridor, aka Cancer Alley. How do you tell the difference between sinus problems and a cold.

Oh well I feel better, I am at work, but I think I will milk being sick for a little while longer.

As I was getting dressed this morning I realized, that my son stares at me a lot and smiles. It is the cutest thing, and I am not a neegro that recognizes cute. He chews on his hand, slobbers, and stares at his Dad, with the occasional smile. I think he is a keeper.

Hotness for the press on Friday.

Freaky Friday. So anyone with a religious conviction, or on the abstinence wagon, you might want to steer clear on Friday.

    I hope you feel better.

    Yes, LOST is my TV crack. I love the show. But I have always been a fan of suspense. The fact they they reveal everything so slowly keeps me coming back.

    I remember when I had my first sinus attach. I though I had a brain tumor or something deadly. I had the worst headache of my life and was sick as a dog. It either gets better or you learn to deal with it. I am not sure which.

    Cute little baby boy is becoming dad's boy.

    Bring on Friday! Glad that you are feeling better! And I ONLY watch the American Idol tryouts. The bad singing and performing and attitudes is soo.much.comedy! 'Tis a damn shame that these people are encouraged, by somebody, to stand in long lines to get on tv and demonstrate their clear lack of any talent. But amusing, 'tis.... LOL

    I love this part of American Idol, LOL. That’s whats so funny to me the fact that these people really think that they can sing when that can’t. Once the people that really know how to sing start, I don’t watch it anymore. I just wanna laugh at the non-singing idiots, LOL.

    I’m just getting over being sick myself, well at least trying to. I’m still coughing a lot. I hope you feel better!

    Father and son bond is so cute! Glad to see you are feeling better!

    Glad you're feeling better. I see we have in common that of being not even remotely intrigued by American Idol. Watching THAT show is a complete and utter waste of time to me, and the few times I watched it during season one were enough to last me a lifetime. Oh, and I managed to get through two episodes of LOST before IT LOST ME. lol
