Answer # 1 and..... Discovery

Well, I did say ask me anything so I guess I really did ask for it! LOL I am going to start with some of the easier questions and go from there. Mama Bear asked "Do you watch t.v. ever? is so what do you watch?" and she has the great good fortune of being the first question I answer!!

I have children. So, the majority of the time, my television is tuned in to Nick Jr. And sometimes, I just leave it on Nick all day. We watch I Carly and Drake & Josh cause the teenager likes them. (I do too actually, they are cute shows) And at night they play shows like George Lopez and Fresh Prince. So, there are days I never change the channel. Then, there are the days that I am so tired of cartoons and kid shows that i just may scream. And then I watch....

Are you ready for this?

I watch reality TV. Yes, I admit to it. I like to watch things like Project Runway, Top Chef and Clean House. I also really giggled like mad at Tila Tequila and Rock of Love. Stupidity at it's finest, there. I like to watch Jon and Kate plus 8 just so that I remember things could always be worse.

I enjoy watching stupid shows, usually, because then my brain is not really engaged. I can write, clip coupons, plan menus, clean house, cross stitch, try to learn to knit, read a book, exercise, sort toys, sew, fold laundry or sleep and I haven't missed a thing.

Except Project Runway. I must watch Project Runway when the newest season comes on without any interruptions. I cannot miss it. I am totally addicted. I love Tim Gun. He is bad ass.

If I am actually wanting to WATCH something then I have the option of any DVD I feel like watching. We own.... I don't know how many. See these pictures? Yeah. These are all DVDs and some VHS. The spindle and the black cases are all full of burned DVDs. And there are probably at least another 100 either in the office or in the girl's room.

Those are the black cases of burned DVDs there below the cabinet with doors. Inside the cabinet are ou r "adult" movies. I need to get a lock on that before the girl gets any older....
We are in the process of entering all of these movies into a database so that I can have some clue as to what we have. I like to organize them alphabetically. I also would like to be able to do a search of the database for movies starring.... say.... Brad Pitt and get every one that we own listed. Or, search by genre. We also have many different TV shows on DVD. Star Trek, Gilmore Girls, Six Feet Under, Firefly, Millennium, X-Files..... and we watch them periodically!

So, there you go! That is what I watch on TV. Not much and then a whole lot! LOL We are definitely movie people. And we are all about instant gratification. Why go rent a movie when you can just own it??? LOL

On another note, yesterday the boy and I were playing outside. He made a discovery and I thought that I would share it with you! Here he is, just being all boy.
Now, here he is.... what does he see? Oh, my goodness, he is fascinated!
And also, quite excited to see....
A "buh-FLY... FLY" or, as you can see, a moth. He spent quite a long time checking this guy out.
I love watching him discover how beautiful the world can be.....

More answers at a later time.... Must think.....

I love the pictures of your son, the second one is to cute for words!

You actually watch TV...that is something I don't do as I really don't have the time. Maybe if there were some peace and quiet in our house I'de enjoy a show every now and then! Only time I watch anything is when I'm falling asleep and then I have to ask my sister how it ended!

Hey, I'm a reality TV lover, too! It's just so funny to watch how people act and react in all those different situations.

Love the butterfly picture! So cute.

Mr. Bum and Lil' Bum are tv watchers. Baby Bum and I are not so much. Our tv is also usually on Nick Jr or Disney. I love Law and Order but don't get to watch it much.

Holy Crap at the movies.
