I Don't Think I'm Normal....

Actually I'm pretty sure of that. One thing I'm doing a lot of (compared to my previous life) is watching T.V. I used to just have it on for background noise but in this postage stamp I call home - you can pretty much watch/listen from any room.

I was sitting here this morning - watching the day break and reviewing my weekend. It was good. Yes, it was.

I cooked I cleaned I chatted I napped. And I watched T.V.

Right now I get no local channels and that kinda bites, but I'm dealing with it. I love movies, so I'm watching to my little hearts content. But it's my choices this weekend that led me to the statement above.

So....what did I watch? Saturday was pretty much the Military Channel or History Channel all day. (except for Pirates of the Carribean) Sunday - I watched the Cubs beat the Sox! Got to do my happy dance, and no I didn't scare the neighbors.....too much. Then back to the Military Channel - they had a couple of great spots on jumping out of helos! Then it was the movie S.W.A.T. Are you seeing a pattern here? Oh, and I almost forgot - Friday night was NFL Total Access. WooHoo!!

No mushy stuff, no warm fuzzies. Shootin' and jumpin' and sweatin'. Is that normal for a girl?

Oh, it doesn't really matter. Not at all.....I just thought it was pretty funny that for someone that people assume upon meeting is a girly girl given over 200 channels I choose to watch that.

Just goes to show you - never judge a book by it's cover!!!

I am right with you ... History channel and the Discovery channel is almost all I watch, oh and recently I've been watching a lot of Spike TV. Oh and baseball, it's the season you know.

History channel is my fav, I have a minor in History. Just love it. Just bought a CD set of WWII battles, can't wait to watch it.

Pirates of the Carribean wasn't on the History channel?

I didn't assume you were a girly girl. I assumed you were a "working girl". There's quite a difference.

Normal? You blog... that marks you as abnormal to start with. GRIN.

Iunderstand what you're talking about. My daughter is the same way. She's a petite little thing that is just cute as a button. The best story I can relate is when the owner of the local military surplus store tells me one day "Hey I met your daughter. This sweet little young lady came in and I was thinking she could only be coming in here to ask for directions. She pipes up and asks if I have any .303 ammo...heavy gauge...high power stuff? After blinking a couple of times I chance are you *Koolaids* daughter? I wiped a tear and said yeah...that's my baby girl. I was so proud.

Normal ain't all it's cracked up to be.

I don't think there's such a thing as normal. The way I grew up was normal for me, but wouldn't have been for anyone else. Except maybe my brothers. . . naaah.
