So I am here to admit to you that my One Moment this week came in the form of made for TV movies. (Pause here to contemplate this) My last few weeks have been spent at home due to both a surgery and also the Northeast being pounded by snow week after week.... This has left me no choice but to spend my time doing things like crafting, reading, working and, that's right, watching TV.
I forgot how much I really don't like daytime TV until this past month. I don't dig soap operas or talk shows all that much so I have resorted to Netflix streaming through Manfriend's XBox. They have a delightful variety of movies and tv shows but what I have been leaning towards are romantic comedies in the form of Made for TV... and not just any movies... those geared towards teenagers and college girls. Gah, I admitted it but importantly, I totally have enjoyed watching them. Just today, I watched Beauty and the Briefcase, starring a Miss Hilary Duff and Starstruck, even worse because it was made for the Disney Channel.... nope you know what? I might just whip out the High School Musical trilogy if push comes to shove. I like youthful silliness!
I know I am not exactly going out to pasture anytime soon but it is really easy to feel old doing the same stuff day in and day out. I realized that in watching my silly movies made for ABCFamily and The Disney Channel, that I am just feeding my inner teenager, quenching the thirst for fun and frivolity! I had to stop and think for a second... what am I holding back from... I should be going out of my way to feel fun and young as often as possible. Shouldn't I? Dude, I might just have a new goal for this year. Feed my inner teenager (without the curfew and immature boys).
PS. Beauty and the Briefcase was actually pretty good. No joke.
