TV-Talk Beats World Affairs Any Day

First published 08.03.14
It's been a minute. I'm writing in Comic Sans Script because well that best replicates the antithesis of things going on in my life right now. I am officially retreating from writing about the various wars around the world, realizing there are enough 'battles' in my own radius of perspective to attend to, and literally all I can genuinely do for people who are in the crossfire is pray for them. And I genuinely do, often throughout the day. I have come to accept that people get paid big bucks to find “solutions” to the problems of the world. The only reward I get for writing this blog is the opportunity to offer 'Mytu Sense.' So, as I recommend in life, keep it simple.
This is supposed to be a weekly blog; however, in the age of internet sniping I learned that some '?????' tried, and actually hacked into my webpage, and probably my computer. It is very clear that working on an old XP is not a very wise thing to do, in a world where '>>>>>' find 'purpose' in infiltrating the works of others, instead of doing something good for the universe and creating their own work. After a bit of research, I learned that at about 4:33 on a given morning someone a few miles up the road, was trying to 'access' my page. Ho...Hum...Yawn...Most people, self included, were enjoying the luxury of a peaceful sleep at that wee hour; however, I am learning by the 24-7 activity of my neighbors that some people don't sleep. No matter what hour I am awake, they are awake. How do I know? Let's just say, I hear them. But, far too much time wasted on the nothingness of life, so let's move on.
Since I have chosen to pray for the people going through crises around the world, I don't have to watch the news, or listen for very long to know that the people caught in the middle are everyday people, like you and me who live in places where they have zero control over when the bombs will start flying, or who will get the next life-threatening virus. My own nation has troubles of her own, as do I, so I'll try to keep the focus on things I can do something about.
To digress, I have begun watching ease-my-mind tv a couple hours in the evening. This summer I have really been enjoying #Master Chef so much that I watch both Friday and Monday nights. Francis L.'s red-beet pasta was obviously a tad bit worse than Big Willie's dessert-Italian entree (LOL...It just came to me...) Gotta love him; but, I'm afraid he's not the Master Chef, and his off-the script dishes are kinda showing that he knows. It's almost a passive-aggressive quitting. Cutter is showing he's got skills; but if I have to guess it's probably going to go to one of the top two ladies, considering top management skills have to meet top culinary skills to win.
Another show I have thoroughly enjoyed this summer is #Extant, with Halle Berry. It's sci-fi enough to keep my attention; however, this last episode was a bit 'fluffed.' By that I mean it seemed to have a going nowhere plot; and I hope that's not a sign of no direction. Admittedly, I missed the last ten minutes; having to run out to the store, but, the last scene I saw was Halle lifting her 'son'...so I will hopefully be able to piece things together when I tune in next time.
Another show I enjoy is #Extreme Weight Loss Makeover, simply because I like to see the results of what hard work, healthy lifestyle- choices, and exercise can do to transform an individual. Also, on my list of tv faves is Top Chef, where everyday chefs try to outcook the pros.
I like to watch #NCIS Miami on the weekend, and #Blood Brothers has its level of interest, probably because of my being a Tom Selleck fan from back when. Occasionally, I watch #Dateline, and the last one I watched really held my attention, as it was a perfect case study for what happens when generational behaviors repeat themselves without someone drawing a line in the sand and saying the '#####' stops here. It was the case of the twin daughters murdering their mother and covering it up for four years. They each received a 30-year sentence; but, it's likely they'll be out by their mid-30s because of extenuating circumstances (i.e.) stellar behavior going the way of the dogs at a high-hormonal time of life. Of course, there is no real 'excuse' for what they did; but, built-up anger turns into rage when all parties have tons and tons of pent-up anger. The mother lived the life the twins were living with the great-grandmother, and well...history sorta repeated itself. Let me say, while the g-gm may not have been the best parent figure in the world, she did keep the girls in school with high grades. Tragic is the only word I can use to define their story. Mothers with teen daughters, be careful what you do and say around them; because, you may find them being a mirror-image of you some day.
Well, enough said. I'm going to return to the real world and the concerns of the day. Tally ho; and Godspeed. Btw, if you're the extant trying to dally in my affairs behind the scene, via this deceptive contraption, have fun...and remember the seeds you sow, you must someday harvest.
