Who'd have thought?

I don't usually take well to sexy teen dramas. Something (clearly!) is very wrong with the concept. So maybe I shouldn't confess this--- but honestly, is it possible that one little show on DVD can make a girl so happy?

It's sad I know, but I've discovered that my happiness is directly related to the shows we're watching. I know this because when summer-tv hits, I get a bit of the summer-crap-tv blues. If my day's dragging, AND we're trying to eat healthy, AND there's nothing good on at night, WHAT am I supposed to look forward to? So the little things just bum me out a little more and days seem endless. Especially when we can't step foot outside without shriveling like the wicked witch.

I know there's an anonymous out there somewhere that wants to remind me that moose-tracks and hollywood-derived teen-romances are NOT the true sources of happiness. And I'm well aware of that (in fact, does anyone know how I get one of those cool buttons that says "I believe" and links to the church's website?), but I'm not kidding when I tell you that I've been so HAPPY lately... with this show to look forward to! I'd seen previews before and it did NOT appeal. But since it came from a good source, and we were desperate, we decided to give it a shot. It took me a few episodes to really get in, but now it just might be one of my favorite shows. Maybe even EVER. The acting, the characters, the southern-drawls.... I hear the music when Ross puts the DVD in and I'm a clam. A happy happy clam curled up in the couch with my computer on my lap. Kind of makes me want to move to a small town and grow my hair super long.
