Around 8 or 9pm last night I decided I had been crying enough and needed to be distracted. So I went to my first choice which usually proves to be my most reliable...my television. In the back of my mind somewhere was the knowledge that my regular Wednesday night shows weren't on but I couldn't remember why. Yep, the stupid CMAs were on instead. Now, I love most kinds of music. Really. I'm one of those people who, when asked what kind of music I listen to, answers, "Everything. Except country." I understand that country is a very popular form of music but it's not something I listen to unless it's some sort of cross-over that becomes wildly popular. Hey, I know who Lady Antebellum is and I could even sing one of their songs (but I couldn't tell you the title of it). I am probably alienating lots of people with this but I just don't care about country music or who wins what award. I do acknowledge that it is incredibly popular and I'm sure the CMAs had strong ratings last night but they weren't doing me any good.
I think last night's episode was about a guy who was killing older brothers or something and specifically doing it during extreme weather. I'm wondering if someone at The Weather Channel got an idea from that episode to do a special on how weather affects serial killers. Anywhoodle they caught the guy and went back to their office to wait for the next murderous psychopath or sociopath to strike. Unfortunately the show didn't do its job for me because I couldn't tell you what happened. I will now go back to just watching it in reruns on cable. Of course it's not Criminal Minds's fault that my dog left this world on the same day the CMAs forced me to watch a new episode of their show. But if Modern Family had been on I would have been forced to laugh through my tears. That's what I needed. Also, now every time I hear anything about the CMAs, I'll immediately think of KC. I'll NEVER like country music now.
So my TV let me down. You might be wondering why the heck I didn't just watch America's Next Top Model. They're totally distracting! I'm pretty sure the Tyra-monster and her band of merry wannabes would have just made me even more sad.
|They're all sorts of depressing.|
