TV

Today on 2peas, Sophia issued a blog challenge: name your top 10 all time favorite TV shows, the top 10 shows you've never really cared for, and any other thoughts on TV that you might have. So I'm dedicating today's entry to Stevie the TV. ;)

Here goes:

Top ten favorite shows (in no particular order):
1. Grey's Anatomy
2. ER
3. Friends
4. Good Eats
5. Iron Chef
6. Scrubs
7. Desperate Housewives
8. Law & Order: SVU
9. Babies: Special Delivery
10. Everyday Italian

Ten shows that do NOTHING for me (again, in no particular order):
1. Everybody Loves Raymond
2. The Wiggles (*shiver*)
3. 7th Heaven
4. Charmed
5. The George Lopez Show
6. The Andy Milonakis (or however the heck you spell it) Show
7. The Man Show
8. Six Feet Under
9. Alias
10. Survivor

I'm sure there are tons more on both lists, but my brain is fried and she specified 10, so I'm sticking with that.

As far as my thoughts on TV go...I like TV. I do. There are TONS of great shows on (see first list above), the TV is a great source of information (i.e. CNN, the news, etc.), you can even come up with funky names for your TV (ours is Stevie...c/o Joey from Friends). However...the TV can also be a bad thing. It can be just another addition to the big ol' melting pot that *is* addiction. You watch too much, you stop spending as much time with your 3dimensional friends and family as you do with Stevie and at some point you even get that groove in your couch from too much watching i.e. Homer Simpson. It can get bad.

So...as much as I like TV it's good to turn it off every once and awhile and do something to interact with the outside world. Read (*gasp*), spend time with your friends and family, get some exercise, study, scrap...whatever. But don't make TV your life. ;)

p.s. My sister will be appearing on the show Close to Home as Kayla Philby on CBS this friday at 9. Don't miss it!!! How's that for irony? ;) Pot, meet kettle.

Ok, enough about TV. Now I wanna talk about living. Where you live...where you don't ever want to live...where you think you'd like to live... I'm not usually a blog stalker (except for Miss Sara W. I seriously hope I don't scare her off) but I checked out Heidi Swapp's blog the other day and she had gotten some fantastic family photos near her home in what looks like Arizona, and it got me thinking. I would really LOVE to visit Arizona. Love it. And Texas! I hate Virginia. Well, I hate Northern Virginia. It's so damn stuffy and expensive here and I'm tired of it. I want to be somewhere with some cool history. Not saying VA doesn't have that, but I would love to go to Texas or Arizona and just be, ya know? Tumbleweeds (heh), BBQ, heat, those cool roofs (ya know..the clay ones that are like pink or turquoise and stuff)...it just seems like they're both such interesting places to be!! Maybe I'll visit first...I'm pretty sure some people wouldn't like it if we just up and left, ya know? heh. ;)

So hey...if you live in Arizona or Texas, tell me about it...what's it like?? And if you have pictures, even better!! Share with me!

oh well, let me see....i live in central texas, small town called temple. moved here from the big city, san diego and before that i lived in los angeles. much fun to be had in southern california when your single...young & beautiful. ha ha ha!

but temple is the place we were looking for when we decided to start a family. quiet, clean, conservative, family oriented atmosphere. the landscape is beautiful if you're an "outdoors" type of person.

and then there's the bigger cities in texas, like houston...dallas, austin and san antonio to name a few. there's a whole of just about everything here in texas.

and now i love it and call it home.
