I promise that tomorrow's blog will be horse related. I am actually planning on doing a post on the Australian Stock Horse after reading Pony Girl's blog today and learning of Bush Babe's blog and her post on camp drafting! I have been meaning to do a post on ASH for some time now so look forward to putting one together. Stay tuned.
Now.... about the Idiot Box.
My Poppie was known to call the television, "The Idiot Box"!
Over time, he grew to understand the positive aspects of what TV had to offer....things like the History Channel, the Discovery channel and all the other educational programs. Over time he came to love Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and a host of other Senior TV staples.
Eventually, Poppie bought himself a special pair of ear phones to allow him to hear the TV...that is, without neighbors three streets over having to hear things like, "I'll take Musicals for a thousand, Alex" blasting from the vicinity of Poppie's house, like clockwork every evening at seven-thirty.
(Poppie loved when this guy was rockin' it!)
Then came cable TV and the Sopranos. Poppie loved the Sopranos. Thank God he had the ear phones by that time, or the neighbors would have been calling the cops every Thursday at ten-thirty.
No matter how much he grew to love what television had to offer, he still called it "the idiot box".
With that being said, my Poppie would be horrified to hear of a terrible little secret I have.
I am SO embarrassed.
I don't know if I can tell you.
Oh, but I just have to....
Tonight is the season finale of a show that I have faithful watched for many years...far more than I care to admit.
I hide away in my closet.
A blanket over my head.
I turn the volume down really low so no one can hear.
I have my hand poised over the remote in case someone should come in!
So that I can change the channel to Animal Planet or Myth Busters or some educated program...anything but the trash that I am secretly watching!!
Americas Next Top Model!!! *gasp* There! I said it!!
I am so excited! Tonight it will come down to these three girls....
McKey with her infinitely long legs!
Analeigh with her sixties flower child charm....
I cant wait to find out who will win!!! I am hoping for Analeigh. My secret is out. Any other's care to fuss up? Come on! What junk tv do you watch? Celebrity Rehab maybe? Come on! You know you do it!!
