Nope Purp I haven't. If it's not a sitcom or a western nothing gets my attention. LOL.

I think for sitcoms my favorite right now is Mom and then an older favorite would be Community

As a disclaimer I should say that if you haven't seen Mom it is about a woman who is a recovering alcoholic.

I'd like to share the lyrics to one of their songs called "Faceless" ~ it can easily be applied to that evil AV

Hate me with everything
I'm better off without your animosity
I'll even sleep better at night...at night
I won't believe in you
Reminded me of everything you put me through
Now everything feels alright...alright

I feel so betrayed...mistaken
I create another day
You'll be gone tomorrow
Lie to me, you're faceless

You've made me out to be
Responsible for your self-inflicted misery
It never felt like this before...before
Don't be surprised to see
That I have nothing left for you to bleed
When you come crawling back for more...for more

I feel so betrayed...mistaken
I create another day
You'll be gone tomorrow
Lie to me, you're faceless

Purp- Godsmack? Godsmack? I think someone at SR has a slight obsession for them.
Sam- we get your used, used ,used sitcom's here. Diff'rent Strokes, Family Ties (how 'bout us- sha la-la-laaaa). The Aussie B graders are so embarrassing even we will not watch them. I love the way they spin repeats. First repeat- it is called encore. Then it is put on demand. Then just move it to another time slot on a sister channel. Leave it for a year and repackage it as 'classic'. The biggest abuser would have to be MASH.
I prefer weird stuff (who- me?). A brit one- the IT crowd, and Black Books for eg.
Off to a meeting.
March on (in March- our month, seize the day!).

Caramel - "Here be dragons" I'm totally using that whenever I pass the wine aisle!

Purp - thanks for sharing those lyrics.

Sam - Enjoy the rest of your vaca days

Bobbie - Hope you had a good run

BBG - Sweet dreams!

PJ - Autumn for you. Spring for us. My two favorite seasons!

I will be happy when this week is done...I'm nervously watching my cat while she grooms to make sure she's not trying to get to her stitches. She keeps wriggling out of her onesie. I have bad luck with animals and stitches. One dog I had was notorious for pulling them out. Twice I left her alone to take a shower and the first time she pulled every one of her staples out, the second time stitches on her chest. If only animals would listen to doctor's instructions...

Just back from a meeting. There was one guy there. When sharing he pointed out he was the only guy in the room wearing a suit- that he had a great responsibility for all of his clients, the importance of his role. That he was so wowed by a guy (who he mentioned by name then started going into this other guy's rough history- jail etc) who was not at this meeting- but had related utter delight in buying a washing machine. I hope he realises with his growing awareness how important sobriety is- not as an adjunct to a 'normal' life- but as a priority.

A lot to think about in that story PJ. Thank you.

Indeed connecting to what is truly important - and it isn't suits and an important job - must be a key to living a healthy life. Having that kind of job makes it easy to disconnect from gratefulness...I speak from experience unfortunately. One of the many reasons I hate business suits!

Washing machines are so nice. We aren't down at the creek beating our clothes on rocks anymore. I love my washer even though it's 12 years old and rather....temperamental. She's a diva but I appreciate her.

I need to give her a name. Hmm.

LG- who is your Avatar's name?

Another moment...went to get a stat de signed by a JP. To say cannot live in family home, do not own anything- do not gain financially- wife owns most of it blah. The JP asked me if I was such-and such's son. I looked at his name tag. I recognised the name- I mentioned the country town from 45 years ago- his role, how he influenced my bro's- music wise (and thus indirectly me- Uriah Heep, Deep P etc) and a concert he took them to. He just remembered me. A fate of god's hand? Nope- just is.

I go back to my first posts here last year. I was feeling rather self pitying at the time. Now with growing awareness I can see the world anew- especially through the eyes of my family- to me. Regardless of who I am now or what I do now- they have the image of me --then.
I respect their silence. It saddens me with more emotional maturity now with awareness to feel empathy for them It reminds me very much of my dad. BUT being the first male in 80 years on my paternal side to openly face, declare and walk the walk with sobriety- I feel even more determined to remain a good person through growth. Perhaps one day my family will want to see me- but it will be a very different dynamic. I must use what I have learnt. Perhaps I am finally growing from the emotional child I was to the man I should be now.
