    Scenario

    A team of evil Canadian scientists (is there any other kind?) have captured you for their grusome experiments. See Photo Below:

    I just type "clockwork orange" into copernic and boom - web pages galore.

    Copernic - I love thee

    I once went trick or treating in an outfit with a large white codpiece. I was 27 at the time.

    Am I being tortured with American shows or Canadian shows? Bad American shows would pack a quicker punch, but I'd experience shock quickly. Canadian shows would inflict a longer, more drawn out punishment, inflicting the kind of boredom that is usally only experienced by prisoners in solitary confinement.

    American television

    Anything on CBS that appeals to the "Leisure Acres Village" crowd
    Sabado Gigante, with the senoritas blurred out
    Anything on WB
    Anything on the Lifetime Network -- All men are slime!


    Canadian television

    we're in the middle of a fund drive and it was hell being stuck in the car on a 4 hour trip with crap to listen to and no informative programming (unless you call the rants of AM talk radio informative..ugh!)

    How about a never ending public hearing on a proposal to re-zone a parcel of land for a Wal Mart...or anything else for that matter....

    Imagine hearing the following cliches over and over and over:

    "It will increase crime"
    "It will bring in undesirables"
    "It will increase traffic"
    "It will lower property values"
    "I think the land should remain open space"

    I think I have heard those 5 lines at every single public hearing I have ever attended.

    Well it isn't on the list, but I'd have to go with the 700 Club. Talk about an endless stream of extremist bullshit...oi!

    Not to get off of the subject, but I've been there done that. One meeting lasted so long, the Commission purposely ended it and reconvened for a special meeting the following week. I think that particular meeting lasted even longer.

    I have to admit that I love Seventh Heaven on the WB. It is just the funniest show I have seen in years, and I watch it several times a week. My boyfriend, however, does not share my feelings, and will only watch it intoxicated.

    Hmm... don't even want to begin to touch the 7th Heaven topic. But I have to admit, I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan. And my husband was way into Buffy before they switched over to UPN and began to suck.
