I suck at blogging (but I excel at watching TV)

It’s been three months since my last blog entry, and I’m really, really ashamed of that.  Words like “motivated,” “disciplined,” and “consistent” have never been used to describe me, but when I started this blog over a year ago, I told myself that this wouldn’t be like all of those started-but-quickly-abandoned projects of yore (that half-finished quilt from 1990, that huge stack of cloth napkins I was going to embroider for Christmas gifts a few years ago, Moby Dick) and that I wouldn’t get sidetracked like I did 10 years ago when I was trying to write and FX showed back-to-back episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 four times a day.  But then I discovered that Roseanne comes on eight times day.  Eight!   We TV shows six episodes and then a local channel shows two more.  And this isn’t counting the Roseanne marathon that airs every Monday on LOGO, which may or may not have resulted in my switching back and forth to watch two episodes at the same time.

I can now say with complete certainty that I have seen every single episode.  The series finale aired on We TV a couple of days ago, so I’m hoping that I can move on with my life now.  Of course, they have started up again from the beginning and the local channel is almost to the point in the series when it was at its best, so there are no guarantees that I can just look away.  Is there a 12-step program for this sort of thing?

I leave you with this, my absolute favorite scene ever from Roseanne.  Go ahead, click on this link.  You won’t get hooked the first time.

Update:  It turns out that yesterday (when I posted this) marked the 25th anniversary of the show.  I had no idea!  Also, I feel really old now.

  1. ok, I don’t know where the link is, and I want to know which is your favorite scene! Mine is the one where the men are comparing football injuries, and Roseanne tells them about the time she had to go to the hospital, and they cut her open, and took out a HUMAN BEING!!! Her stand up act where she talks about how her family thinks her uterus is a tracking device for lost stuff is classic. I think of it every time Lily asks me for something I have never heard of that she has misplaced.
