Oye.. I’m back from vacation and overwhelmed.. I have so many things I need to get done in the next coupe of weeks.. my head is spinning.. It’s spinning so hard, that I did the only logical thing I could think of, I sat down with my beautiful wife and watched some TV.. now, that might not sound like anything special.. but you have to understand that in our 30 years as a couple we’ve never really even had a TV hooked up in the house. sure .. we had some flirting with the TV .. we watched a season of ’20 something’ in the late 80’s while I was in grad school.. and we have the occasional Jon Stewert/Stephen Colbert habit.. But something happened when I got my IPAD, The IPAD is a gateway drug to Netflix, and Netflix leads to harder stuff, indeed. First it was ‘Dirty Sexy Money’.. a 2 season drama-comedy about ultra rich folks.. totally stupid, but entertaining.. that lead to a brief dependency on Portlandia.. which we soon found too close to our reality so we went cold turkey.. But now.. we have it bad.. really bad.. as in Breaking Bad.
I’m so overly fascinated with that show.. The show is so demented that you just can’t look away. Like every other middle aged guy who watches it you can’t help but think ‘ that’s why i studied chemistry !’ I love the science they work in.. it’s carefully researched.. and just carefully enough disguised not to encourage folks to try doing the stuff at home.. I’m only half kidding when I say that the show does a great job of promoting science..
Hey, whatever works !
