Scream Queen Meets A UFO

It has been one of those weeks! It started out fine... I was on the treadmill getting my jog on... when all of the sudden smoke starts billowing out of my tv, that I might add was NOT ON! I yelled at my husband to come and help me take it down and figure out what the deal was. It freaked me out sufficiently... so I was going to call my workout good... but my husband told me to keep going, it was just a fluke and tv's burn out. (Okay, But aren't they usually on when they burn out? I'm just saying.)
So against my better judgement, I start to jog again. I'm one and a half miles in to my 2 mile run and the treadmill is set at a brisk "8", when all of the sudden the treadmill goes crazy!!! Seriously, it started to speed up faster, faster, faster... I push stop... it won't stop! Now this is when it happened, I have no idea where it came from, I started screaming. Not like I have ever screamed before! It was like I was being chased by Neo Cons in a nightmare, scream!
For the rest of the day I was shaky... It was not like I thought the treadmill was all turning into a Steven King novel villian, it just freaked me out!

Now on to the later part of the week. I have felt AWFUL! Just yucky. Nothing in particular, just aches and a high UFO... okay it is actually a FUO (Fever of Unidetified Origin, I just liked using the UFO acronym better.)! So to add to things that I have never done before.. I woke up soaking wet with sweat! Gross, I know! UGghh... It has just been one of those weeks.

It's a different world

So I pick my eight year old up from school and she says to me, "My friend's dad had surgery on his hips so that he can be a mom now."
ME:(!?!?)Trying to play it cool... "What? Really?"
Whit: "Yep, He has mom parts now."
ME: (Second Grade... Really) "Hmmm..."

Now I know that conversation is not going to win me mother of the year but...
How do you react to that?! Seriously?!

Once she was out of the car I called as many people that I could. See that is my reaction... WTF!!

I am not really worried about Whit... she is a mellow kid and I can talk to her, if I need to explain, or whatever... but I feel for the little second grade friend. Can you imagine trying to handle that?

Where has all the Good TV gone?

I am a defender of television! I really enjoy it. It really gets to me when people bag on the television. It makes me feel bad and wonder how crappy thier childhood was. There is great programing out there... Friday Night Lights, I swear I watch it and it makes me want to be a better mom... Dexter, where else do you root for a serial killer?... Arrested Development, Funniest. Show. Ever!...Food TV... HGTV... and just about any procedural, it's like comfort food.

Unfortunetly, the TV is becoming a scary place. VH1 used to be a fun safe destination... not now. I am afraid I'll catch a STD by watching (Flavor of Love, Rock of Love, I Love New York... Ugh! Not to mention the child expoitive shows like Make my Child a Star). It's not limited to reality either. Have you seen FX lately. I'm all for unorthodox... but Nip Tuck, Dirt, and the rest are just sensational (and not in a good way).

Finding good TV is harder to do these days. How many channels have to carry the WWF Raw? Poker... on Game Show net, Bravo and ESPN?! Really?!
I guess it is a good thing. I can read more, be more productive and spend more time with my family, so there's that. Yet I miss the good old days.

So what are your Favorites? And your Least Favorites?
