Come On Down!

This last week I have learned the happiness that daytime television can bring. I had a little totally minor surgery (which is a story for another day.) and was lounging last week, spending my share of time in front of the television. My morning started off with the BEST game show EVER, The Price is Right!!! I am sorry, Loritab you didn't make me nearly as happy as the girl that won $12000 playing Plinko, or the guy that won BOTH showcases with an awesome bid in the showcase showdown (he was only off by like $40 or something crazy like that). My afternoons were filled with movies and travel shows. I had no idea what I was missing, working the days away. I also love how at the beginning of the day all they show is "old people" commercials (Scooter stores, mean old Wilford Brimley yelling about diabetic supplies, and drug adds) then as noon approaches more food commercials and the afternoon is rounded out with commercials about going back to school. (catchy jingles and ways to make more money quickly. ) Man, when I was younger I didn't pay nearly enough attention to wasting days away and now I can't just sit and watch it unless I have some medical proceedure done. Well I guess I am willing to sacrifice myself in the name of science if it means more of those wonderfully wasteful days in front of the boob tube.

The Price is Right always makes me think of summer off from school in my early teens.

We'd wake up just in time of Price is Right and then watch gameshows until about 1:00...Press Your Luck (No Whammy!) was my fav!

Now I feel like DVR'ing the Game Show Network while I'm at work and they catching up on it in the evenings. :)

I know what you mean. I had surgery in March and April this year. It was kind of nice to just stay in bed and do nothing. I definitely don't ever get that opportunity with three little kids. My husband took care of the kids and I did nothing. Every once in a while it's nice to just do nothing.

You are too cute... Ha ha, I can't even watch the boob tube when I am sick. It drives me crazy. But you are so right, you totally notice more now the commercials and the target audience for them.
I am glad you are feeling/doing better. Sorry I wasn't more friendly today. it had been one of those days and I was ready to get the rock out of dodge! I will see you on Thursday! HUGS!

The Price is Right is the greatest! I hope that you get feeling better soon!
