Random Monday – Now With More TeeVee!

In CategoryRandom Monday

• Someone found my blog by searching for “homeschoolers site of awesomeness.” I don’t know if they found awesomeness when they got here, but it made my whole day nonetheless.

• NOAA had finally released the results of it’s research into the existence of mermaids. Hint: there aren’t any. Your tax dollars at work, Citizen!

• I love summertime television. I think the quality of the shows on cable is light-years better than the crap on network television.

and I AM a connoisseur.

The final episodes of The Closer start tonight! I love The Closer and will miss it. BUT! There will be a spinoff in August called Major Case, which I am looking forward to. We have also been enjoying Longmire (on A&E) and Common Law (on USA).

Also this week, Big Brother starts, which is a very guilty pleasure we ashamedly indulge in every summer. Every year I tell Jim, “I can’t believe we watch this swill,” but every year, we do. Of course the kids are staying up later, so that might pose a problem.

Because I am also a hypocrite.

See, I LOOOOOVE television. I do. I love it. But we are very strict with the kids. They are barely allowed anything more than PBS Kids. Sure, they get to watch Phineas & Ferb; but only on Netflix, where they are not assaulted by the unbearably obnoxious commercials on the Disney Channel. So if they drag bedtime out past the beginning of Big Brother, I don’t know what I’ll do.

Cry, perhaps.

Do you guys like summer tv? What are your favorites? I don’t want to miss out on any great shows!

• Happy Monday, y’all!
