the narcolepsy machine

evenings at the spaceneedl household...

we eat dinner. we drink wine. we watch a bit of tv.

and we fall asleep on the couch. or in the chair. or just about anywhere in the vicinity of the fireplace.

it's warm. it's mesmerizing. it's just too darn comfortable.

hours later we wake up, barely coherent, and complain about the fireplace.

we trudge off to bed, and complain that the bedroom is just too darn cold. "it's like the arctic tundra in here," mrs. spaceneedle laments. so we bundle up and we snuggle up and we go comatose for a few brief hours.

the following day, it happens again.

it's become a routine. not an ideal routine, perhaps, but a routine nonetheless.

I've got the Xbox 360 on the Big Screen HD upstairs. I also have 35 unwatched episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force on the DVR.

The lady likes to watch her CSIs, Bachelor, and other horrible shows. Last night I came down early (9:30pm) to snuggle and make sure that I'm not neglecting my lady. With that decision I'm suckered into the end of Gray's Anatomy, an entire episode of Big Shots and the local news. All 3 are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. And I'm reminded why I'm upstairs until she falls asleep.
A solution is that she could watch sports when I come down, but I don't think that's happening.

What could you 2 possibly watch together that you find rewarding?

the only series we watch is 'gray's anatomy.' i don't mind that. the rest of the week it's a basketball game or maybe a movie from 'on demand.'

or we just leave the tv off altogether and read.
