{February 16, 2014}   Exes and Ohs


I just discovered the lesbian drama series Exes and Ohs. I’m not sure how I feel about it… maybe like it’s a cheap follow-up, wannabe The L Word? Has anyone else seen this? I just got HULU so obviously my first mission was to check out the Lesbian and Gay genres.

Life according to The L Word. Ahh, gotta love The L Word… and Jennifer Beals! I have just one question, am I the only one who can’t stand Jenny???

{August 29, 2013}   Rainy Days

Rainy days make me lazy. So does severe lack of sleep. Thanks to the rain I was awake all night with my shoulder throbbing.
So today’s plans are to lay around and watch The L Word. Fortunately for me about two weeks ago while under the influence of a new medication I bought a subscription to Netflix. I only found out by looking at my credit card statement.
So there’s my day.

{May 27, 2013}   My Friends Live in my TV

I’ve never been a big television viewer. However, I’ve gotten into a few. Thank God for DVR and on-demand. I remember the days when you had to plan your life around General Hospital’s schedule. Here are my favorite, must watch shows:

The reason I love this show is rather obvious...

I’m a little bit saddened by the season finale this week. The show won’t be back until the fall 😦

Also obvious why I love this show...

I know that the show is over, but I still watch the episodes over and over again. I found a rumor online that they’re making a movie for The L Word. I wonder if it’s true? I hope so!

Medical drama's, some of the best TV ever.

Another show that has stressed me out because the season finale just aired last week.

More medical drama.

More medical drama.

It’s not just a medical drama like ER. It carries lessons and gives a peek into the political aspect of being a hospital doctor.

Women in uniform... kicking ass... need I say more?

Police Women of Dallas, Cincinnati, Memphis, Orange County… you name it I love it.

I love cop shows. If I weren't a firefighter/EMT I'd be a police officer.

Like the original Cops, only faster chases, crazier drugs and better video quality. And who doesn’t love Inner Circle’s Bad Boys?

Chelsea Handler is both my idol and my fantasy. An outspoken, down-to-earth woman. I never miss an episode of Chelsea Lately!

I actually had a dream the night before last that I flew out to California to stay at Chelsea Handler’s house. It was a totally innocent dream. There were several people out on a deck and we were seated at a big table having a nice cookout. It was a good dream. My dreams usually revolve around my job and are more like nightmares about bad car accidents and seriously psychotic people going off the handle.

My friends live in my TV. Sadly, the drama in these shows sometimes becomes very real and I find myself worrying about the characters while I’m dealing with reality. Don’t worry, though, ’cause I’m not crazy I’m just not-OK-in-the-head!







{March 9, 2013}   Unconditional Love

What’s better than unconditional love? Nothing. Who’s love for you will never waver? When you’re having a bad day or are absolutely miserable? Your pet. Mine happens to be Babe, my cat. She loves me no matter what. She loves me so much, she’ll sit through hours of an L Word marathon. That’s love.



{February 27, 2013}   “Girl”



Found this song/video and had to share it. Great song, super video! Pay close attention and you’ll see Bette & Tina (The L Word)!

{January 21, 2013}   Today, It’s Okay

With my sister safely in our Emergency Room until a bed opens up at the State Hospital for her, I can now concentrate on my happiness about going to get my new car today. 🙂 The only difficult part is convincing my niece to go because I have her until my sister is better. My niece hates to ride in a car and would be much happier to stay here alone but she’s only six years old. She’s always telling me, “I’ll stay here and Sarge (my dog) can watch me”. Haha. I trust Sarge 100% because he’s a 128 pound, loyal German Shepard, it’s her I don’t trust!

So I’m leaving here in about an hour and I’m literally trembling from excitement! Honestly I’m almost in denial, like it’s a dream and not real. I’ve always driven trucks and SUVs, for one thing, so a car is kind of foreign to me (technically it’s a crossover), and they’ve always been cheap buys (aka pieces of shit that will last me from one inspection to another, barely). This car is nice. Really nice.

With my excitement I had a very hard time falling asleep last night and I kept turning my pillow for the cool side. That sent my mind on a rant, one I’ll call The Simple Things. The simple things that mean so much: The cool side of the pillow, whether it’s eighty degrees or sixty degrees in my room, I want the cool side of the pillow! A drinking glass, I can’t stand to drink from plastic! Every time I see my Auntie I get two bear hugs (at the least), one when I arrive and one when I leave. A TV in my room where I can watch my favorite shows, like NY-ER and The L Word, without being harassed about how “gross” they are. My animals for their unconditional love, when I’m happy, sad, angry or indifferent, they’re always there and they’re always happy to see me and be with me.

I tried to think of something ‘simple’ that had to do with my job at Fire/Rescue but I couldn’t. Because nothing is ever simple when I’m working. But that’s how I like it to be at that one place.

{January 10, 2013}   A Little Bit Obsessed

The L Word

I bought myself a DVR box today so that when the rare episode of The L Word airs I can record it (it usually airs in the wee hours of the morning). I’m also putting this DVR box in my bedroom so I can watch some of my favorite shows, like American Horror Story and Chelsea Lately, even when the kids are here (such shows are totally inappropriate for anyone under the age of sixteen to watch).

Now I will probably spend the next three days doing something I never do: watching TV. But that’s okay because even though my fever is gone (yay!) I still feel like poo. And today is day seven of this awful, debilitating headache. Now is a good time to start watching all those good shows. I made dinner early, the kids’ favorite: home made baked macaroni and cheese with tomato bits and crushed-cracker topping.

{October 21, 2012}   Me Day

Jennifer Beals, she looks just like my physical therapist, whom I was head-over-heels for, in this pic.

I had a “me” day today 😀

I was able to watch more L Word episodes (Love, love, love Jennifer Beals!), I did some of my own laundry, I exercised for a little over an hour, I jammed to music, I took a hot bath to relax the muscles in my back and now I feel pretty good. It was nice to turn off my cell phone and pager and not have to deal with anyone or anything. I even considered napping, but I feel like that would waste my “me” time.

Soon the house will fill up again and I’ll have to go back to being sociable and doing what is expected of me. But I feel good about taking this day for myself. Maybe it will bring me some peace and I will be able to catch some good shut-eye tonight!
