How To Keep Your Favorite Television Shows Safe

I don't always watch shows when they first show up on television. If I am interested in a show, it's like the kiss of death. Four shows have been canceled recently that I liked. Almost as soon as I showed the slightest interest. They might have been on for years, but suddenly I set my eyeballs on them. Bam. Canceled. Dexter was one of them. I did get two seasons in before they axed it. So, that's not a bad run.

If you have a favorite show, tell me what it is and I'll promise to NOT watch it. Like a reverse blackmail. I could stop trying to write for a living and blackmail could become my new profession!

Notebooks and Super Powers

During high school, I skirted the line of petty juvenile delinquent and outright criminal activity. Not once could anyone have called me a geek or a nerd. It was buried deep, but it was there. I wasn't hiding from it or shielding it so people would think I was cool. I've always fit in more than one narrow box. I smoked, swore and stole things. At the end of the day, I'd read. Recharging my batteries before a new day of mischief. Yeah, I was a handful.
