A new season
On the verge of a new season, (how I love the change of seasons) I eagerly anticipate the return of my fave shows, Lost, Desperate Housewifes and Survivor. As much as I love watching repeats of Seinfeld, Roseanne, and Sex and the City, I'm just itching to see what happens next with the gals on Wisteria Lane, the dishelvelled aircrash survivors on that strange and fascinating island, and the new contestants (and Jeff Probst) on Survivor (Season ? I've lost count). Surprizingly I am still into Survivor and I've heard that the teams will be divided by race. That's kinda interesting but not quite politically correct, n'cest pas?
I'm also looking forward to new shows like 'Ugly Betty'.
The kids are all back to school now, parents are celebrating, the trees are beginning to color. Ahhhh, how I miss those school days, buying new fall clothes - pleated wool skirts and cordoroy pants, crisp cotton shirts and knit cardigans in rich jewel tone colors. I suddenly have the urge to run to the nearest Walmart and purchase stationary - slabs of lined paper, yellow pencils, bic pens, big pink erasers, multi-colored duo tangs and my favorite - colored pencil sets. I remember my red tartan pencil case, my plastic Scooby Doo lunch box (pre paper bags) and ..... okay, enough nostalgia already. Now, I'm hoping I can relive all this through my child (still hoping) someday. Someday.
