Sheesh am I bored with the news! And TV in general. Sure, I’m watching my shows religiously; Supernatural, Survivor: Micronesia, Project Runway, Ghost Hunters International, and The New Adventures of Old Christine. (ok, a woman’s tripe is another’s foie gras) But, the news is a vast wasteland of “he said/she said.” YAWN. The Academy Awards are more masturbatory than enlightening, considering nobody actually sees the movies that come out in December because a) they are only for Oscar consumption, and b) they are cultural elitist propaganda and claptrap meant to make political statements most of the time.
I really cannot muster enough interest in anything right now but reading the latest Greg Iles book and playing my addictive computer game Bookworm. Work is the same old, same old. The only thing new is the trip I’m taking to Hungary (the fatherland) with my son in April. My unknown father came to America following the ’56 Communist takeover of Hungary. He quickly married my mother, fathered 3 girls a year apart from each other, and promptly left without a word. I don’t care about finding the man, but I do care about heritage and this trip will answer (or maybe not) a lot of questions for me. If not, at least it’ll be something new! Ok, I’m trudging off to plug myself into the worker bee slot now. See ya’.
