I Fail

At writing in this thing. Even TV didn't inspire me. But look for more coming soon. Tomorrow even.
This one is simple.


I know that it had a preview that aired last May. But officially this is its first season! I know that it has been uneven at times. I know that sometimes the characterizations border on cartoonish. But everything so often, there is something so heartfelt and real that I can't look away.

Oh yeah, and then they sing.

Anyone that watches have a favorite number?
So, I thought a LOT about this. And I am going to go with TNT's The Closer.

If only so I could talk to more people about it. It is a true ensemble show, with everyone doing amazing work. The banter is perfect. Her folks are from Atlanta and make me laugh. And Brenda and Fritz's relationship carries real weight.

I never, ever fail to be entertained.

Add to that it is a summer series show, it fills the time in between regular tv seasons!
So I just gave myself a few moments to think this through to give a answer I will be good with. Because I really do love my tv. I thought about sharing photo clips for all the answers I will give through this meme but then? I thought? VIDEO. Because og how I love video. I will try and find appropriate video spam as I work my way through.

So, there are a lot of shows that I have actively enjoyed while they were on, but not been utterly devastated to see them canceled. This includes things like Moonlight, the remake of Dark Shadows, Dollhouse and even HORROR OF HORRORS the American version of Life on Mars. Settling at the top of this list is Angel. I still stink they had a wealth of stories to tell there. That said, they also had five seasons to tell multiple complete arcs and a few unfortunate ones. And there are more than enough episodes for fill my mornings for TNT.

That leaves me with two, both obviously canceled before their time. Firefly and Pushing Daisies. Ultimately I am going to put PD at the top, only because Serenity was one heck of a film to take away the sting. There was nothing like PD out there. It filled both me and my tv with color. I miss it.

So, I will double dip tonight with two video offerings.

Getting Back in the Swing of Things

I've abandoned by journal for long enough. While some things will always be softer, and more private? There is something to be said for getting thoughts out. You will be seeing more of me here.

But for now I wanted to repost something I'd never actually read until one of by best friends Angela shared it with me after an insane say of laughing over childhoods, pictures and reading old diaries. It finds a new way to touch me every single time.

I thought others might want to read or revisit as well. I post it every few years.

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone that can be loved. The rest is up to them.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, but only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that it's not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life that counts.

I've learned that you can get by on charm for about 15 minutes. After that, you'd better know something.

I've learned that you can do something in an instant that can give you heartache for life.

I've learned that no matter how thin you slice it, there are always two sides.

I've learned that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you'll see them.

I've learned that you can keep going after you think you can't.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that there are people who love you dearly, but just don't know how to show it.

I've learned that there are many ways of falling and staying in love.

I've learned that no matter how many friends you have, if you are their pillar, you will feel lonely and lost at the times you need them most.

I've learned that the people you can care about most in life are taken away from you too soon.

I've learned that love is not for me to keep, but to pass on to the next person I see.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

....so, I get it. I totally understand how at times it can be helpful, interesting and even fun. That said? I am no longer going to ship daily updates here. I figure if you want to know? You will follow me. And if you don't? I'm not going to spam you from here. I can also see where reading peoples conversations with other people can be confusing and even on some instances? Hurtful. So, I just clicked the suspend button.

Birds of a feather tweet together...
