I really do despise television. I’ve been called pretentious for saying those words but I can’t help it. Sometimes I do watch old episodes of Law & Order or CSI (I’m a crime novel junkie, so these shows do appeal to me). If I’m ill, I’ll watch really terrible Lifetime made-for-TV movies with the hope of falling asleep. Normally, TV just makes me feel like I’ve wasted time and I’d honestly rather listen to music. The last time I really got into a TV show, it was The Pillars of the Earth miniseries, which is based on one of my favorite books.
Whenever people are talking about new TV shows, I usually glaze over…until my mother somehow recently got me hooked on American Idol. Tonight, I found myself asking Chris to take a break from his hockey game so that I could see who got kicked off Idol this week. He did it with a faux scowl (and all the sports-loving men reading this probably think I’m horrible) , but who can argue with someone who literally never asks to watch a TV program?
As I sit here and look forward to Casey’s performance next week (while hoping America stops voting for Haley), I’ll share with you my Thursday spring picture.
