    I'm getting numb.

    My wife is addicted to the talent shows like American Idol and Grease. I just had to walk away from tonight's Grease. Even with the pretty dancing girls, enuf is enuf. Real brain wasting stuff. Oh, well. Back to the recliner. Maybe I'll take up drinking the hard stuff. If I don't return......look for me at the wall....

    Thank God my wife hasn’t found Grease (yet). I can’t stomach American Idol very well.
    I usually go out to the shop or get on the ‘puter.

    During the show she asked me about something that had just happened. I didn't have a clue. Now, she's convinced I'm completely senile. The brain went mushy, no doubt. Shop is still a bit cold for enjoyable working. Things are warming up though.

    Remove the TV. You will have to find ways to entertain each other that way.

    American Idol? Who cares! Thankfully neither me nor the LOML.

    I'm often asked how I get a lot of stuff done, sure, I don't sleep nearly as much as when I was younger, but the biggest thing is I do not waste my life, sitting in front of a TV.

    I rented a movie the other night, one I've been wanting to see for some time, Frank Miller's Sin City

    I used to love to read his illustrated novels, the movie was amazing, brutal and hard to watch sometimes, but it was amazing, it was like a Frank Miller novel coming to life....... I gladly spent the time watching that one......... in the Dungeon, smoking a nice fat cigar and reorganizing my tools drawers

    Cheers!

    You don't have time since you are on the forums all the time now.
