tv-ed out


yes, you read it right. tv-ed out. i've watched a lot of tv over the past couple weeks. it's cold outside. i want to be warm inside. but all i'm doing is watching tv. augh. the upside is that tim and i often play games while we watch so that my mind isn't getting mushy but still...i think i'm almost tv-ed out. i discovered mtv canada on channel 94. it always has a totally brainless show on at anytime so that you can tune in and then when the show you're waiting for comes on, you can easily tune out. my favourite mtv show is rob and big. a pro skater and his body guard. other than that show though, they're all pretty pathetic.

haha. right now i'm reading london is the best city in america. i went to the library this past weekend and got some books so that i have another option but haven't found anything as interesting as my fav chick-lit. it takes more thought to read than you know...the shopaholic series let's say, however, probably good to counteract my tv watching with a book like that.

in sadder news, i have another ingrown toenail. ahh...the anguish. i've been getting regular pedicures ever since my last ingrown toenail for fear of cutting my own toenails. was it a crazy fear? apparently not. i cut my toenails myself a couple weeks ago for probably the first time in 6 months and now one is ingrown. all my life i've been cutting my own toenails never an ingrown nail in sight. what's gone wrong? this morning i woke tim up to tell him the bad news and mumbled something about me probably needing to have surgery on it which threw me into a panic. i'm hoping it won't come to that. ha. (maybe i shouldn't laugh...)

Tough break with the ingrown toe-nail. I feel your pain... I have been there.

Jimmy... was that James? My James? He NEVER comments on my blog unless I call him and tell him to.

I know what you mean about the mindless tv, and being tv-ed out. I always have the tv on because it's nice to hear peoples voices in your house, but after a while it just gives me a headache. MTV canada is the worst, I can barely watch any of the shows excpet Laguna Beach... which I know makes Sharelle think less of me. But save your judgement, it gets worse, I sometimes watch The Girls Next Door... yes the show about Hugh Heffner's girlfriends... it's sort of like watching a car wreck, you can't look away.

Just realized that it was not 'my' Jimmy posting after reading previous blog comments:) He is a sometimes lurker though...

Oh...you should talk to Dallas about the toe thing. He is a pro at dealing with this, and has had minor surgery on both big toes for ingrown toenail stuff. One turned out way better than the other, and he hasn't had problems with it since (they were done at different times, by different doctors). Hang in there, Bec! I recommend soaking the toe in some warm water with epsom salts while you watch all that TV...
