Blogathon 2006 Post # 39

Wow, number 39. Ten more to go after this one. It seems almost unbelievably that I have actually done this many posts without losing my mind. Right now I'm drinking a glass of Pinot Grigio, which is remarkably refreshing and tasty at 3:30 in the morning. Maybe margaritas should be next?

Meanwhile, the Boy is going through the Ikea catalog that I've been longing to look at, circling all the things he would like to have. Yeah, right. If he's really lucky, he might get some food this week.

I am comforted by....

The continuity of my favorite soap opera. I know, it sounds really inane, but when you've been watching a soap since you were 5 years old and you're 54 now, and the same characters with the same actors are still there, you have to admit it's sort of like watching your family grow old! I mean, since I don't really have a family, I don't really get to watch the passage of time except with my kids, and they're only 13. But the Hughs family on As the World Turns? Man, I remember when Bob and Lisa were in high school and they are both grandparents many times over. And not little grandkids, either. Teens and college aged grandkids and more!

The five actors on the left, 3 standing and two sitting are all original cast members from the beginning of the show. Like in 50 years ago!

I don't watch it every day, and most of the time I sleep through at least half the episode (just put it on and I'm out like a light) but I follow the happenings in Oakdale IL much more than I do my own pathetic family, and I like them better, too.

What comforts you?
