What Would Jack Do?

Ok, no one told me BEFORE we spent all summer watching season after season, disc after disc after disc, explosion after explosion, corrupt deceitful mole after corrupt deceitful government official, rising body count after rising body count of everyone he knows/meets/sleeps with... etc. after etc. ...that 24 was on Monday nights?!?!?!? How can I watch Heroes and 24?

Actually, unless Heroes gets totally silly, and I mean extremely silly enough to outweigh having 2 of the 3 most beautiful women on TV, it will be an easy choice. I'm sorry, but Jack has one hour left to convince me he is worth watching after spending the 1st two nights of the new season coming back from every commercial break to announce yet another attack resulting in the loss of hundreds and hundreds of lives, only to be topped off with a mushroom cloud over L.A. ?!?!?!? I know we're numb/oblivious to death and destruction, but enough is enough. It's almost as ridiculous as the dried Elmer's glue all over his hand -- c'mon, we all did that in elementary school: peel it off already, scare the girls, and go out to recess.

So...is this what you've been doing on your break from classes? Your inspiration consists of reruns of Jack Bauer and a new found obsession with Heroes?! Yeah, go with the new resolution that involves cracking open some books and maybe offer some friends and family the literature and music you're hoarding. And what's with three posts at once when you haven't posted in, like, forever? Spread it out a little!

ok, so resolution #11 should have been a combination of controlling my obsessive/compulsive manic blogging/procrastination issues....

and #'s 12 thru 23: study, study, study, and study some more.

Time to pry that wallet open for a cable box with the built-in Tivo/dvr. And...did the next two hours convince you that Jack's worth it? Get the wife to give you your allowance a little early or an early b-day present.

Yeah, I still trust Jack for another week... recorded Heroes but haven't watched it yet. Already got my Valentine's & b-day gift since I whined so much at not getting an iPod for Christmas she got me one to celebrate Kwanza, and I'll be gift-less until Father's day.
