Flash Forward

There's a new show on ABC on Thursday night at 8pm called "Flash Forward." It premiered this past Thursday with an encore showing last night. I guess they really want to build a following for this show. I think it's by the same creators as "Lost" and I never got into that show. But this one is good. The first episode was good anyway. Hopefully, they'll keep it up. Keep it intriguing, which it was. I'm hoping it doesn't get too complicated to follow, but it sorta reminded me of the "X Files" which I LOVED back in the day.

"Flash Forward" is clever and a little bit creepy and it hooked me right from the start. I made a vow to myself not to get sucked into watching reality television this season. Not that I ever was a huge reality fanatic. I watched "Survivor" for the first two seasons and then stopped. Watched "Biggest Loser" last season and really got into it, but I don't want to go there again this season. Enough is enough.

I'm too busy to watch television anyway, but every now and then a new show comes down the pike that is promising....I don't get HBO or Showtime, so I'm not even tempted by the great shows that are on those channels. "Glee" and "30 Rock" and now "Flash Forward" may be my choices for this fall. But I've got to limit my television time because I've got a lot of work to do....all the time, work, work, work....could possibly make Deb a very dull girl....God, I hope not.

Check out Flash Forward...I recommend it. It's cool.

I've been writing so much other stuff, I've sorta been neglecting this blog. :(
I promise to try and be more prolific. It would motivate me to write more bloggy stuff if I'd get more feedback...hint, hint, pressure of course!

Uh's back....

Yes, folks...we are once again in the midst of a Mercury Retrograde. It started yesterday, (the planet Mercury traveling backwards) and it will continue through September 29th. Mercury is the planet that rules communication, travel, when it's running backwards...well, you do the math! Usually, there are only 3 Mercury Retrogrades per year, but I guess 2009 is special, because we'll have to put up with a 4th one starting December 26th. Just a little heads up for ya!

Between the stinkin' retrograde, and tomorrow being 9/9/09, and the full moon a few days ago, and the Swine flu, and the fires, and, and, and....AHHHHH.....the sky is falling, the sky is's not the end of the world...that doesn't come until December 21, 2012...the end of the Mayan calendar. You've heard about that right? Well, if you haven't, don't worry....cause Hollywood made a movie all about it. It stars John Cusack (one of my favs) and I'm sure it will help you learn everything you need to know about the end of the world. Cause if Hollywood says so, it must be true. Right? Of course right! Bahahahaha...

Honestly, I'm not as caught up in all this astrological stuff as some of you may think. However, I do believe there might be something to it...and even if it is all just a bunch of bullshit, at least I have something to blame for my fuzzy head, my forgetfulness, and rude people who do not answer my emails or return my phone calls...etc., etc., etc. I will tell you this: I am fiendishly backing up my work on my it superstitious or call it ridiculous, but better safe than sorry, my daddy used to say!

Mercury may be moving backwards causing all these feelings of sluggishness...but the fact is that the world, as far as I know, is still turning, and work awaits....I must get to it...I need to go feed the machine!

Why I oughta....

How hard is it to flush a toilet in a public restroom? Seriously. What is the big deal? If you don't want to get all germy, use your foot. That's what I do. But you need to FLUSH PEOPLE!!! It's disgusting. Do you honestly like it when you walk into a stall and get a visual of someone else's...uh...shall we say...history? FLUSH!!!

That's all. I'm done. I feel slightly better.

It took longer than usual for the sweat from the frosty, icy cup to drip down. It moved an old man on a hot and humid day. I sat and watched its journey...mesmerized, hypnotized...waiting, waiting, waiting for it to make its descent. There were moments when it didn't drip at all. A bubble of liquid transfixed to the side of the cup.

In its grand exit from liquid to solid, it eased its way off the cup and dripped meticulously on to the napkin that lay beneath. The napkin waited eagerly to receive the moisture. As it rolled off the cup and on to the paper, it sat there for an excruciatingly long moment. With grace and finesse, with patience and fluidity, it leisurely merged into the napkin....shrinking incrementally....sinking into the dry coarse recycled paper...with one final gasp before disappearing completely, leaving only the slightest trace of its former existence.
