For about the past 9 months or so, I haven't been able to watch new movies. Or really new television.
Movies come out that I am dying to see... we really don't see many. So when they come out on DVD, we buy them. And then I still haven't watched them.
Books that I have wanted to read... I'm afraid to read them. I tried to start reading The Book Thief, but when I realized (about the first page) that it was narrated by Death, I quickly tossed that book to the floor. It will soon be finding itself at Goodwill I think.
I got a spotify account and have been listening to Disney music. I find it comforting.
We watched a lot of stuff that I have already seen:
Big Bang Theory
Friday Night Lights
The Good Wife
Old Seasons of Big Brother
Or we watch a lot of crappy reality TV, which Phil is not such a fan of.
I just can't watch new stuff. Phil finally got me to branch out and watch some Duck Dynasty. But that was really only after he told me about most of the episodes. And I did watch Big Love for a while there, but I always had the option of looking up what happened on wikipedia or IMDB.
I know this makes me sound like 20 kinds of crazy-pants.
Phil and I were talking about it yesterday. I think it is because the drama on movies and TV shows just freaks me out. Life has been so complicated lately and full of drama... seeing how things could be even more dramatic just freaks me out. Phil's response was, "But it isn't real. It is fictional drama."
And he's right. It is time to put on my big girl pants and branch out.
But not tonight... So You Think You Can Dance is on. :)
