Shark Week

Well, my husband, sister-in-law and I are still stranded at that motel in Nowheresville, Idaho. Due to be finished in the morning, the car's timing belt is being replaced, and we're watching lots of Food Network and Shark Week on the motel cable.

Having watched very little TV since going to college (for lack of a TV, not necessarily on principle), I'd forgotten how many commercials there are! I'd also forgotten how they can take the most inane topic and make a 1/2 hour show out of it. But I can't deny its pure entertainment value, if devoid of edification.

Tonight I waited thirty minutes to see a shark jump out of the water. That was the whole point of the show. Kinda takes "jumping the shark" to a whole new level.
