And On a Lighter Note

Today I'm in Temecula--hopefully--speaking to the Erle Stanley Gardner Writers Conference.

But while I'm writing this I'm still home. Because what I wrote yesterday was heavy, decided to write something a bit lighter.

I love reality shows--at least some of them. I've been following Dancing with the Stars faithfully, and I must say I'm very impressed with Donnie Osmond who is the old guy this year. The Amazing Race has been excellent--and I also tune into Survivor--and am amazed at how easy some young people can be manipulated by an older guy. Last summer I watched Big Brother--oh my, that is quite a show.

By the time 8 p.m. rolls around, the time most of these shows come on, I'm through for the day. I've written, done errands, laundry, answered people's question via the phone or email, cooked dinner, cleaned up the kitchen and I'm ready to hang out and watch other people's lives.

And I have to confess, that if we're home, hubby and I watch General Hospital, the soap opera, at 3 every weekday afternoon. It's a good time to take a break and both of us often snooze through it.

Being a mystery writer, of course I like shows like NCIS, Medium, and I even get a kick out of Castle, though I seldom see the end of it, having fallen asleep about midway through.

Both hubby and I love to go to the movies. We try to go a couple of times a month. We're picky about what we see. We try to choose one that will be better viewing on a theater screen. Although we did recently see both Zombieland (which was hilarious) and Cirque du Freaks, the Vampires Assistant--which I enjoyed, hubby slept through first half and said it was confusing--well, duh.

We also watch a lot of Netflix DVDs and have enjoyed some foreign movies and small movies that we've never heard of. Some we don't watch past the first 10 or 15 minutes.

Anyway, for those of you who think all I do is work, see, I do have time for other things.

Okay, now I'm impressed! LOL. I've started watching "General Hospital" everyday, too. I do the DVR thing, so I can always watch it later.

I first started watching it when I was in college on the days that I didn't have late classes. Back then, it mostly focused on the hospital setting and not on mobsters.

I don't stay up for "Castle," but do the DVR thing again! Great little technological thing, the DVR.
