Last night was one of those nights when the phase of moon and the barometric pressure and ... all came together to make sleeping an euphoric experience. I can't tell you how rare it is any more when the sinuses are clear and the aches and pains are gone and laying down is so pleasant. It was great.

Of course, I have been paying for the glorious night of sleep with an itchy nose all day. That might be because of the combined thunder and snow and rain storm that has dropped in today. It has gone from sunny and clear to thundering and raining to snow flurries and back to thunder and rain and then sunny again in the space of a couple of hours. Spring must really and truly be afoot.

The weather, especially the thunder, means that Molly the wonder dog has been Molly the trembling ball of nerves, trying to crawl into my lap all day. Once the thunder fully recedes into the distance, she'll collapse on the floor of my office and sleep for a few hours. (In fact, she is asleep now.) So maybe she'll have a euphoric sleep as well.

On a completely unrelated note and somewhat related to J. Cosmo's cryptic comments about J.R. (from Dallas), what is the show or shows that you actually watch as scheduled? Note that tivo or DVR or online viewing via hulu or netflix doesn't count. I want to know if there is a show or shows you actually watch as and when scheduled by the networks and cable companies. (None is an acceptable answer as well.) I have a deep suspicion that there are very few people who follow program provider's scheduling whims anymore. but I want to see if I am wrong.


  1. Right now American Idol is one of them. But we don't have a DVR so I kinda have to watch it live. But all my other shows I watch online minus commercials.

  2. Even though I risk great ridicule in admiting this...I try to always catch GLEE. But if I have a meeting and am unable to see it I know that HULU is just a click away.

  3. Ah, a good night's sleep - a reminder of youth when I didn't even snore! It is much more rare these days.

    Watching tv shows in real time; never happens except the news & weather and I can only stand about 10 minutes of that. I don't think there is that much that is happening that is really important. The talking heads just have to drivel on to fill an hour.


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
