Hello. My Name Is Sandra, & I'm a T.V. Junkie
Let's see. What's on there now? Hmmm, I know there are 3 episodes of Glee. I refuse to watch them until I can see the one that preceded them, which was not recorded. That means that I will have to visit hulu.com before I can start watching them. I also record Ellen everyday, and then I will delete it if I see that none of the guests interest me. Most of the time they do, so I have to find time to watch that. Granted, it's not beyond me to FWD through the less interesting stuff to get to the good stuff. I also love home decorating shows. You wouldn't know it by the looks of my house, but a girl can dream...
I've recorded a few movies, also. One of my all-time favorites, Mr. Holland's Opus, is worthy of another viewing by me. It's been awhile since I've seen it. The Pursuit of Happiness is one that I've been wanting to see. My family would never watch it with me, so now I have it on my DVR for that perfect moment to kick back, relax, and watch it. I will, even though it's been on there for about 3 months!! I'll get around to it. Just last week I watched The Sound of Music. It was 4 hours long, so I just broke it up into segments, but I finally finished it. I had never seen it, something that many of my friends could not believe. There are several old movies like that that I would like to sit down and watch. You know, those movies that everyone always talks about, but you've never seen? It makes me a little ashamed to say that I haven't seen some of the classics.
I was totally hooked on American Idol. I had to give up on Dancing With The Stars because, somewhere along the way, it began conflicting with something else I was watching. Oh, I remember. It was The Biggest Loser. All 3 of those were on at the same time, so one of them had to go. You can only record 2 shows at the same time and, despite its name, The Biggest Loser won out. I watched it to try to stay motivated on my weight-loss journey. There was a point where I had given up on my weightloss, but I was too commited to the contestants and their journey that I had to continue watching to see who pulled it out.
Now, America's Got Talent, and Losing It With Jillian have taken the places of AI & TBL. We go from one right into another. I told you that I'm hooked! It's a wonder that I even have time for Facebook, housework, and this blog! So, if I don't post everyday, you'll know that I'm back in my t.v. room trying to "clean off" the space on my DVR so that I'll have room for more!
