Every Thanksgiving I make it a priority to take a moment and remember the things that I’m thankful for this year. It mostly consists of good health, my family and my friends. Yesterday, while I was gobbling down some turkey, I was thinking about some other things that truly make my year more enjoyable. Maybe a few of my choices would appear on your own list.
My TiVo: Yes, I have finally moved into the year 2008 and bought myself a TiVo. Now I wonder how I ever lived without it. No more VHS tapes for this girl. I have gone high-tech and I’m lovin' it. I’m thankful for not having to choose which TV show I’m going to tape and which ones to watch on my little 19 inch television. It can record multiple shows at that same time, which is fantastic. It probably hates me on Monday and Thursday nights, but I say take it up with the networks. In short, it’s the best invention ever for this TV addict!
Supernatural: How could I not be thankful for a television show that brings me Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki every week? It may not be on one of the big three, (CBS, NBC or ABC) but it’s the best acted and written show on television. Thank you to all the people involved with Supernatural for having a clear beginning, middle and an end to your series. It’s much appreciated and I can’t wait to see what’s in store next year.
The Annual Dog Show on NBC: Thank you for giving me an excuse to dig out my It’s a Wonderful Life DVD.
Project Runway: Thanks for proving to me that it’s possible to actually have real, talented people on a reality show. Tim Gunn, you are amazing! Keep making it work.
Commentary with a Co-Ed/Tube Talk: Last, but certainly not least, I’m extremely thankful for this column. It has helped me in a major way with my writing. I love writing about what I love and sharing it with all the readers here at Tube Talk. A big thanks to Jennifer, a.k.a. Tube Talk Girl for the opportunity and the continued support. This former co-ed, now college graduate, couldn’t do it without you. Also, to the visitors of Tube Talk, thanks for listening to my ramblings.
What are you all thankful for? Tell me in the comments!
Commentary with a Co-Ed is a weekly column at Tube Talk new every Friday.
