ok, so we don't go to church either

What Happy People Don’t Do
NYT November 19, 2008 Happy people spend a lot of time socializing, going to church and reading newspapers — but they don’t spend a lot of time watching television, a new study finds.
That’s what unhappy people do.
Although people who describe themselves as happy enjoy watching television, it turns out to be the single activity they engage in less often than unhappy people, said John Robinson, a professor of sociology at the University of Maryland and the author of the study, which appeared in the journal Social Indicators Research.

I'm happy. Are you happy?

I was happy. I've been able to watch every past episode of all my favourite crime shows free on Chinese Youtube.

I've now seen several years worth of Cold Case, CSI New York, CSI Miami, CSI Vegas, NCIS, Damages, Criminal Minds... you name it, I've seen it.

And, I've been paralyzed with fear for 6 months. Hard to get off the bed.

But am I happy now? No!!! I've watched everything already! What is there to look forward to?

Ever see the real Housewives of Atlanta? Nor had I since I haven't had a TV these past 11 years. (Don't fret, I'm not; it is making up for the previous 11 years when I had TVs in every room). Anyway I was in the South and the sleeping arrangements necessitated an Aerobed, for me, on the living room floor. In front of the TV, of course. The clicker was lost somewhere underneath the person who fell asleep on the couch. And so, housewives of Atlanta. All the episodes re-running. Life serials of old, with cliff-hanger ending themes. Will her father really be the one she believes? Will what's her name ever talk to who else again? I fell asleep reluctantly around 2 am. Housewives played out to snoring. As usual.

I would recommend Conviction, Damages, and Justice. Three excellent legal dramas, available on Hulu, Tudou or Youku.

Justice I think is a Bruckheimer production, so you know it's good. The bad part is I've seen all the episodes.

I thought it was "Housewives of Orange County."

Gotta go. Time to study Ed Gein on Youtube.

Happy, me.
