Just this week, I have come to the realization that I am in a state of massive withdrawal! SERIOUSLY! No ~ maybe I am in mourning ~ where have all of the familiar faces gone? McDreamy, Meredith, Bailey, George ~ Allison and Joe ~ Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Desmond, Hurley. Charlie ~ The Walker Clan ~ Men In Trees ~ Ugly Betty ~ Liz Lemon & Jack Donaghy ~ Claire, Hiro, the Patrelli brothers, Parkman ~ Pam, Jim, Dwight, Michael ~ Grissom & Sidle ~ SERIOUSLY!
I am awestruck by how much time I spend getting to know all of the characters in the shows I watch, but then again, all of this abuse of the DVR has been quite therapeutic for me. Since I found out that my Brain Tail has moved into my spinal column ~ it has occupied my every waking and sleeping thought. I don't enjoy being so in tuned with myself ~ so self absorbed in every physical symptom caused by said Brain Tail. Escapism has been my ticket away from myself, if just for a couple of hours ~ let's call it 'self medication'. It's a good coping mechanism so I don't drive myself completely coo coo! But what in the world am I going to do while my TV friends are on their summer vacations????
We are moving in 14 days ~ maybe I should use my new free time to throw some stuff in boxes ~ brilliant idea. But SERIOUSLY, I feel as if my TV friends are actually my friends. How sad it that?!? I tune in each week to see what kind of decisions they are going to make, how they are going to embarrass themselves, how will they resolve conflicts ~ good stuff ~ Maybe I will spend more time blogging this summer ~ anything to keep my mind off the waiting game with impending surgeries.
So ~ what do you think? Have I been wasting time or has it been time well wasted?
