I’ve watched three episodes of This Is Us on NBC.
The pilot was so good, it could have been a stand-alone movie. The second episode matched it. And tonight’s made me realize I wasn’t keeping score any more —
I’m all in.
So, I am sorry I’m just now mentioning it. I’ve been distracted by really excellent TV.
I have a home office, and often keep the TV on for a little background noise in the apartment.
This afternoon I am working on the couch in front of the TV. The sound is down low, so it’s more of a pleasant hum than a distraction.
But then this image filled the screen during a commercial break —
Geez oh pete, HBO…don’t throw around the Black Swan willy-nilly.
That’s some seriously scary shit.

Thanks to Netflix, I have been re-watching the first seasons of Parenthood.
(I have it on good authority that my friend Tina is doing the same thing.)
While I am enjoying reliving the joys and perils of the Braverman family — and anxiously awaiting the introduction of Ray Romano’s character Hank in episodes to come — I had forgotten how much I love…
So big. So bold. So beautiful.
Still want ’em, even though they make my nose hurt just looking at ’em.

To inspire today’s post, I scrolled through previous images I have used in the blog and selected one at random —
Not sure this one is going to do the job…especially on a national holiday. Kinda feel the couch calling instead.
But wait — I have a laptop. I can write on the couch. I’ll write my blog post there. No worries. No problems.
The TV is in front of the couch…and Silver Linings Playbook is on Showtime. That might get in the way of my writing.
Not so far.

I am in Kentucky this week to celebrate the holiday, visiting with my brothers and sister and their families.
I am staying at my oldest brother’s house. When I a little kid, I wanted to be like Kent…so I copied him when it suited me.
A prime example?
He loved Star Trek, so I loved Star Trek…still do. Even boycotted Star Wars when it was released way back when ’cause he did.
Wonder if he will find this as amusing as I do?

My post is late tonight.
I did put in a long work day. And I’ve been chipping away at that pile of Christmas cards. But the real reason?
The Sing-Off on NBC.
I never intended to watch. But a friend told me one of the a cappella groups was from my alma mater, the University of Kentucky. So I turned in Monday night to see the ‘acoUstiKats’ perform.
They were even better tonight, although they had to participate in — and win — the evening’s sing-off to survive to compete again.
I see another national championship in our future!
