Monday Morning Laughs

I like to watch T.V. - there, the truth is out! I don't want to like to watch T.V. because there are so many other things I could be doing that would be a better way to spend my time. But....I grew up watching T.V. and I still enjoy it. I do have a hard time finding things I like, though, but I'll mention some of my favorite shows. I kinda find myself navigating toward the TVland channel because it shows some of the good old classics that were around when I was a kid. My all-time favorite show is The Andy Griffith Show -- the black and white ones with Barney. In my opinion, they'll never again be able to come up with any show better than that one. I also still love to watch Leave it to Beaver. These shows just take you to another time, another place even though they are a little bit unrealistic. And of course, I Love Lucy was always another favorite. Lucy could get herself into the craziest situations! There aren't really any regular current shows that I just have to watch every week. I do let myself get caught up in American Idol when it is on, and Big Brother when it is on. At one time I tried to get into Lost because people at work were talking about it, but it was hard for me to have time to sit through an hour-long show.

I enjoy watching reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond and Seinfeld. I've also started watching The Office when I remember it. I think the comedy in Seinfeld and The Office is a new kind of comedy that I didn't see in the old shows. I enjoy this kind of comedy, maybe because my kids like stuff like that. If you enjoy shows like The Office, I think you would really like Matt's blog, Mom Yelled My Full Name Last Night. His title alone makes you want to see what his blog is about. I have to check it out every day because it makes me laugh. Matt has a way of writing that sounds like he's just talking in a conversation, but the way he says things is just so funny! And then the comments that his readers leave are nearly as funny as his posts. I hope he keeps posting in his blog for a long time because I love getting my daily dose of laughter from this unique young man.

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven......A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4

Hmmm...I like watching TV, too, if there are my fave series or comedy there he he he...

I also love watching movies with my hubby. ;-D Horrors, suspense, thriller, comedy, cartoons, adventures...He doesn't like dramas, though, so I'll always watch dramas alone he he he...

I used to see I Love Lucy back in Indo (they aired it for a short while), but unfortunately I can't find it here.

I'd better check Matt's blog, then. I want some laughs, too hi hi hi...

Thanks Kathy, you turned my Monday into a Friday. I feel some pressure now, hope I can continue to bring the good stuff. I just posted, it was ok. Oh yeah, tell your daughter I said hey. Tell her I work at NASA too, ha. Have the most amazing Monday ever.

Kathy said...

Sandi, I'm glad to know someone else out there likes TVLand.

Amel, I like watching movies with my hubby, too, but I usually end up falling asleep.

Matt, I'm glad I could turn your Monday into Friday. Hope you won't be too disappointed tomorrow when you wake up and realize it's not Saturday! I told my daughter you said hi!

My favorite guilty pleasure is MASH. I have all 11 seasons on DVD but will still watch it in the evening on Hallmark.

Kathy-Thank you for reading my blogs.

I'm not a TVLand fan but, you're right, you can never go wrong with Seinfeld.

I'd invite you to my site, but I saw your blog entry on Christianity and feel that maybe the site might rub you the wrong way - it's fun, but not in a good, squeaky clean way. I suppose if you're hitting the confessional every week anyway, my site might be worth a shot.

Looks like you have a good following. Nice job.

Frasypoo, no need to ever feel guilty again! I wonder if it's wrong to wear red to a wedding?

74wixygrad, I'm glad you stopped by. Funny how you can never get too much of some favorite old shows!

Amel, yes my husband thinks I've never seen the ending of any movie.

Moooog35, I'm glad you stopped by -- please feel free to anytime. I see you like metal music -- I have a link to a good metal band on my blog. Their new CD is out in stores today. Check 'em out!
