Having left today's slate deliberately blank, I was at a loss about what to do, after I finally crawled out of bed at eleven o'clock. Fortunately, that didn't leave very many hours to fill anyway. I could think of all kinds of things I should have been doing, but instead I spent a good part of the day watching TV.
TiVo had shows that were almost a week old cluttering up its hard drive, which is just shameful. How shameful it is that I watch that much television is another question entirely, and one that I might pursue some day, when I feel like beating myself up over something of so little consequence.
This TV orgy (well, it wasn't quite that, technically) meant that I had to fast-forward through all those pre-election ads that appeared on last Sunday's Angel. Smack in the middle of Tuesday's Gilmore Girls, George Pataki appeared out of nowhere and gave a victory speech. And I had one last chance to review the early returns as they crawled along the bottom of Judging Amy (ewww!).
Oh, the thrill of reliving the California gubernatorial cliffhanger one! more! time! I think Simon had a slight lead when the show went off the air at ten, although it turned out Davis won by five percentage points. I hope I didn't spoil that for anyone who hasn't watched it yet.
