Time for a Recharge


OfLeavesAndTrees_5239, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

I know I've been quiet for a while. I haven't actually been quiet, no, I've been underground, hiding. It was time for me to take a slight recharge and take a weekend off. I've been doing so much lately, I felt I really had a need to take a weekend off, take a little bit of time and just relax a bit. This weekend, I stayed at home and watched TV, relaxed, and didn't do too much of anything. I know I'm grossly behind on a lot of stuff, but I really felt the pressing need to take a break, so that's just what I did.

I watched the Super Bowl on TV, well parts of it. I took a nap kind of in the middle of it, but somehow managed to wake up in the middle of the halftime show. I kind of liked the half time show, it was fun to watch anyway. I don't know about "the greatest show on earth!" hype, but it wasn't half bad. I really like The Voice, as I watched the premier of that afterwards too.

My TV viewing habits of late can best be summed up in one word: YUUUP! I've been watching a lot of (read: almost nothing but!) Storage Wars.

For those of you unfamiliar with this show, it's a show that follows people who bid on empty storage lockers in California. I know, it's strange, not the kind of show you'd think would be addictive. Unfortunately, for me however, it's very addictive. I keep watching it and watching it and watching it. I saw Barry get the mini piano and the scooter (oh the scooter!) and I saw Brandi and Jarrod double down on their store. I saw the first, the very first, YUUUP trucks. Oh my! Addicted, I tell you. I'm addicted.

Not to mention one of the bidders, Barry, reminds me a lot, a whole lot in fact, like Mythopolis. I swear he looks just like him, so much so it's almost scary. I feel like I'm watching Mythos bid on storage lockers in Southern California. Really, this is crazy stuff, I tell you!

How do you recharge? Do you take time away from art and intense photography and wind up doing something totally silly, like watching reality TV? Or do you do something else? I bet it would be fun to compare notes sometime.

That is, unless you have stuff in a storage locker in southern California, I'm sure.

Until next time...
