The busier I get the less important some things become. I was once addicted to American Idol. I religiously watched every show. Sometimes, even in real time! I felt the same about Biggest Loser. Every episode was watched with no distraction.
But this season, I decided that I wasted way too much time in front of the television on this stuff. I mean really, except for the faces, it's same shit/different day. So I stopped.
And I couldn't be happier. There's not a single part of me that cares about this singer or that weigh-in. I thought I would feel sad. Left out. And yet, I barely notice. This is good.
I decided it would just be scripted for this girl. And now, I'm thinking about cutting those back too. I love Gossip Girl. But last night, it was so soap opera-y I could barely stand it. I wanted to kick Jenny in the face. Slap Blair. Run a knife through that new girl. And you're supposed to. If the writers do their job, you're supposed to feel for these characters. But I felt nothing for Serena. Stupid girl. I realized that I was spending a good 40 minutes watching bologna when I could attack my mountain of to dos.
So, perhaps I am done with scripted. Maybe I'll just throw the TV out.
WOAHHHH, I'm back. Went too far.
