I've decided to do a series of posts on my New Year's resolutions. One at a time. I'll post as I think of them and definitely NOT in any order of importance. In fact, almost none of my resolutions will be important! :) So . . . drum roll . . . Number One IS:
Watch more junk television!
Now, you ask, who the heck would make a resolution like THAT? Well, I was obsessed with cable news channels like CNN, MSNBC, etc... this past year watching the dire economic news of the day and all the election news. And look what THAT did for me. So, about 3 or 4 prescriptions later, I vow to turn the channel from CNN to lighter programs where I can get a good laugh!
Friday morning on the elliptical at the gym, I was watching CMT (Country Music Television for those of you who are junk-television deprived) and got the best laugh out of a state of the art device they were advertising. The Loud N Clear. If you buy now, they'll send you two for $19.95. Why wear a hearing aid when you can wear a cheap amplifier that looks like a gigantic Bluetooth! You can fool the rest of the Q-Tips at the Bingo Hall into thinking you're a proud Bluetooth owner and actually know how to use it! Or -- be a spy at Friday Happy Hour and eavesdrop on comments across a crowded bar! (Man, look at those hooters! Are they fake or real?) Take a walk in the neighborhood and hear the amplified sound of your neighbors yelling at their kids. Or, God forbid, wear it to the next family get-together and get blasted by the sounds of relatives' flatulence. (Sorry, maybe you don't have a Cousin Hal.)
Here's the ad on YouTube! BINGO!
CMT also has My Redneck Wedding, Bravo has The Housewives of Orange County, NBC has Mama's Boy, etc... So many possibilities, so little time!
The point is -- get more laughs in 2009! :)
