Under the Influence of Love

I’m on my way home from a little hiatus in the clouds brought on by a dance that the local dentist initiated.  Don’t get me wrong, she’s a keeper, the dentist.  But, whoa doggies!  Did that little spin around the chair ever cause me some down time! 

So what’s a girl to do when she’s left drug-dizzy and immobile for two weeks?  She’s left to take a little help from her friends, yesiree.  So I took a nudge from all my TV lovin’ friends and set out to watch some shows from the past few years.  Why?  Because I think the last time I watched TV as a form of entertainment (and not for the weather ripping through town) was about the time I had my first kid.  I just haven’t had a minute to spare for such things since then.  So I aimed to catch up a little and see what I’ve missed.  I didn’t get very far.  Once I caught up with the latest episodes of Eureka on Netflix with the mini-Nerdette, the next place I landed was where I stayed. 

It’s a little place in Kentucky where there’s a bad-ass Deputy US Marshall named Raylan Givens.  I think I fell in love with him on the spot.  Now Netflix can’t exchange DVDs with me fast enough.  I’m a TV addict.  Yes I am.  And I've got forty two episodes to go. 

So what do you do when someone says, "Relax.  This won't hurt a bit."?  Ever fall in love while under the influence?

  1. I have always said that if not for band the Doors and their lead singer Jim Morrison that I probably wouldn't have fallen in love with my first ex-husband who sorta resembled Mr. Morrison if you squinted.

    So I guess you could say that I fell in love while under the influence of the Doors!

  6. I don't know who the people are you that you are talking about. Maybe falling in love while a tornado is ripping through town would make a decent story. There could be a bigfoot involved.

    1. I think I read a tornado romance once. Of course they did it in the ditch on the side of the road with the twister baring down on them. The question is, why do I remember this? Having lived through too many tornadoes myself, it just made me think..."Are you people Cra-Cra? I mean, have some sense and get outta the rain!" Of course, if Marshal Givens was to find me in a tornado....well. Hmm. Bigfoot can ride the banshee winds to another town singin' a yippee-kay-yay song on the back of that tornado. :D

  7. Oooh, I love Justified. Timothy Olyphant is one of my favorite actors thanks to that show. And I just love Boyd Crowder, as bad as he is. The show is amazing at somehow convincing you to root for Crowder at times (later seasons at least). Justified is definitely one of the best shows on TV now.

    I also enjoyed Eureka--a little less tense than Justified :)
