HeadSpace and TV

Posted in Free thoughts by dearestfriend on September 7, 2007

Well those of you who are new to this word.. will have to forgive me.. I have picked it up from some celeb talk.
Still need to verify its correctness. But I liked the word. So I am using it.
I am always the last person for getting glued to TV. I hope none of my family is reading it 😉

My parents would vouch that I can be glued to TV for days. And my spouse would vouch that I have complete disdain for TV. So you can see how much split personality I can be. Well Over the period of time, I have lost apetite for idiot entertainment. You give me some good mental food. I will take it from anywhere. Newspaper, Internet , TV , Gossip, email… just about anywhere… Yesterday I was torturing myself through toooo–elaborate weather news.. I wonder why Americans are so obsessed for weather. I mean so much weather news .. I have never got this who really uses this info. I mean california has stable weather, Why would someone be so paranoid about it. Then whenever you switch news channels, I bet within 5 minute you would encounter a wether word.
Another thing I have grown up to like is celebrity dishing.. Yeah Those stupid E! channel stories.. I like them ..Not for following them.. But to know how much world is unfair.. Some dont have food to eat ..and some have everything to throw away. It helps to put things in perspective. It tells which zone I dont want my life to go in.

Here are some nice quotes about TV.. some are really hilarious.
