Viewer's ADD

Last night I had a serious case of Viewer's ADD. I've experienced Song ADD in the past, and I certainly can spend hours channel surfing, but last night was unprecedented.

I started out watching Lipstick Jungle, that crappy show on NBC based on the Candace Bushnell (of Sex and the City) novel. Why I watch it? No clue, but I guess as I have a season pass for it on my DVR--why not.

My fave Roommie #1 returned and next up was an episode of Planet Earth, the episode "Shallow Seas." The music alone for that program gets me every time. I also like to sing along to the choral movements--very dramatic. I think we got about fifteen minutes in, when we paused to just listen to some music and watch some music videos. Which music videos, you ask? Why Celine Dion, bien sur, followed by Huey Lewis. Halfway through "I Want A New Drug" we switched over to watching The Great Muppet Caper, aka the best of all the Muppet movies. I think we made it an hour into this movie before we had to stop--both for sanity and for the pizza delivery. Our pizza was enjoyed first with a different episode of Planet Earth, "Fresh Water" then after about 15 minutes, with a Family Guy accompaniment--first one sitting on the DVR, which we got about 20 minutes into, then the episode on at the moment--a special clip episode. We didn't finish watching either one.

The evening capped off with The Fifth Element, during which #1 fell asleep, and I half-watched while simultaneously emailing. And no surprise here--we didn't finish.

I guess the point of all this is, what in the world is the connection between all these random movie/tv watching selections and my incapacity to watch anyone of them to the end? (If you know me, this shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.)

Oh and I know what you're thinking--pizza? That doesn't sound very vegan, mon amie. You're right--it's not. I took the weekend off. But it's soy pizza for lunch!

I must disagree, it is clear that "Muppets take Manhattan" is the front runner in the race to the best of all muppet movies. Nice try though.
