Okay, I was really knitting. I’ve been trying to keep more “in touch” with things, so I watched TV while messing with the cables in the vest.
I tried to watch a documentary about Gregory Peck on PBS, but it turned out to be ages old and all the interviews were with dead people acting like they were still alive and talking like Gregory Peck was still alive. Honestly, how long has Lee Remick been dead? So, nothing new here.
Fell back on West Wing/Law & Order, which were the last shows that I ever watched regularly. I’d stopped watching when West Wing was cancelled since all I figured all they were doing is wrapping up the story lines. And I’d stopped Law & Order when Vincent D ‘Onfrio was only on every other week and his character started acting normal.
So I’m watching and this commercial comes on. I don’t know what it was for (Madison Avenue, take note), but it was something about cars.
The premise of the commercial was how much fun it is to just drive around. No argument there. But the tag line they used was, “What if you got in the car and only made left turns?” And goes on to show all the amazing things that you would see and would happen to you.
At first I though it was a joke, because any idiot knows that if you get in a car and only make left turns YOU WOULD TRAVEL IN A CIRCLE.
Most people would only go around their block. Around here, though, I’d be circling the post office and passing the same houses I see every day over and over.
Editor’s Note: Sisiggy has remained faithful to one show, Monk. But it’s easier to for her to just buy the whole season on DVD and watch it at her leisure sans moronic commercials. Or she can just observe Heir 2 and get the same effect, only no murder.
