Or musings, or observations. Here it is Sunday again, one week since my last "bitch" post.
Yesterday, as you can see, I wrote about why I don't watch the Olympics.
- Too many commercials
- Too much one sided coverage of American athletes
- Too many profiles of the hardships the American athletes had to go through to participate in the Olympics
- Too much taped (not live) coverage
- Too many commercials
- Too much talk

It's only a little over a month until the Bloggerpalooza. It looks like we're going to have about the same number of participants this year (20) as we did last year. A few will not be coming and a few new folks will be coming. It looks like a wash. This week and next week I'll review the "prizes" and get in touch with Marshall Manlove, our hypnotist to make suggestions for his show. Anyone still wanting to attend contact me by e-mail and I'll give you the details.

I did a preliminary run on my taxes. First time I'm filing jointly. Bill and I are officially married which means we will now enjoy and benefit from the same marital protections that straight couples have had since the beginning of time. So far, instead of owing over a $1,000 like I did last year, it looks like I'm getting back $985 this year. Hey, feels good to be EQUAL and not Less Than.
Is it me or has this winter seemed like it's going on forever? Wow. I am SO READY for spring.
By the way, I'm watching some really good TV now. I rent Netflix DVD's which I find is the best way to watch TV. I can't stand all the commercials on TV, that's why I mostly don't watch TV. The only TV I watch is MSNBC and the daily lineup of Ed Schultz, Rev. Al Sharpton, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell. I don't watch any other TV except for my Netflix rentals, which I'm binging on "The Good Wife" right now. Oh SOOO GOOD. I binge on those DVD right in my home movie theater, which is my oh so comfy bedroom.
I used to watch shows like "American Idol" but stopped watching when Simon Cowell left and was replaced by the ciphers like Jo-Lo (still can't believe they're paying that giggling phony 15M a year for what?) and Mariah Carey. What am I missing here? And they wonder why their viewership has gone down. Make it interesting folks and get the phonies off.
Okay, enough bitching from this quarter. I feel better now.
