I am a TV junkie. So when I realized today was March 16th and finally time for a new episode of Gossip Girl, I was ecstatic! All day, I kept reminding myself that I could look forward to a relaxing night with one of my favorite shows.
As 8pm approached, I put aside my Post-it highlighter and my copy of The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child. I sat in my favorite spot on the couch, wearing my pajamas and my favorite bathrobe. I propped up the pillows behind me and fumbled for the remote. Two more minutes! Inputting the HD channel, I hit the buttons on the remote for 711. One minute! Snuggling with the cat I made sure I had my laptop and cell phone, so that I could text my girlfriends as we watched (we love to make snide comments and send them to each other!).
As the screen flashed to Blake Lively’s picture, I heard the opening lines….”Gossip girl here.”
Yes! Settled in, I prepared for an hour of pure relaxation and silly, mindless fun.
