no more cop dramas!

1 04 2004

even when i’m tired of reading for school and my brain’s getting jello-y and TV sounds like a good idea AND a way to spend time w/my boy b/c HE’S watching cop dramas, they’re really a bad idea. especially since the news comes on right after, and it’s usually worse.

when i don’t dream about murderers and suicidal children and arsonists burning down the town, i dream instead that my friend who used to threaten to run off and become a spy has been being a mob boss instead, and i knew all along, and now they’re trying to kill him, and i’m recklessly ready to promise him ANYTHING to get him to quit, and he’s actually considering that, but all the while we both know even that won’t keep the hitmen away.

NOT the most cheerful beginning for a grey thursday morning. where are “the misfits of science,” “21 jump street,” “beverly hills 90210,” and all of those pretty-damn-stupid but almost-always-safe things i used to waste my occasional evenings on? even “the x-files” was usually just a little too far-fetched to actually bother me… >sigh<

no cop drams???
what!
but Law and Order rules!!!!!
I’m not so much of a fan of NYPD Blue, i’ve never seen the Sheild, but there are so many varieties of law & Order. Maybe it has to do with my fascination of wantign to be on a jury. At least once. Yes i;’m sure it is probably boring too, but it’s an experience.
I suppose if bad dreams ensue that is not good, so I’ll have to watch your share of cop drama.

Re: no cop drams???
feel free. i hate law & order. they’re always yelling, and the bad guys win WAY too often, because of bureaucratic snafus and loopholes and paperwork problems. i’d really rather pretend that’s not how the system we’re so proud of creating really works…

Strange dreams
Hmm… I’m having the opposite dream problem — not scary but _boring_. Saturday night I dreamed about white bread. No, really. Hey, maybe if we combine our dreams and divide again… No, then we’d dream about white bread commiting arson, or something like that.

Re: Strange dreams
whole shelves of wonder-bread, bursting into flame! grocery-store anarchy! madness in the aisles!
dude. are kid books coming in REALLY dull varieties these days? should we make this year’s sub-theme new & vastly more entertaining children’s literature to revitalize the inner life of janet? (& also entertain the kids, of course, but they’re probably still easily amused by white bread…)

that was the best show ever. i used to throw tremendous tantrums when they’d cancel it for the day for sports events or network…things. of course, i was like 11 at the time. but i SO wanted to be the psychic chick.
every time i see “friends” crap, i think about courtney cox’s FIRST tv series, and wonder how many of her bazillion fans even know that happened, and how much she hopes they don’t…

Re: where all the cheesey dramas?
i’m SURE tnt is beyond the capability of our bunny-ears. we get a fuzzy version of the wb, tho. otherwise our afternoons wouldn’t be nearly so entertainingly filled by eric’s & donna’s antics on “that 70s show.” 🙂
