The dream was kind of a bang (but that’s just a theory)

I had a couple epiphanies Sunday morning.

Let me back up and explain.  Are you familiar with the sitcom Big Bang Theory?  If not, watch TBS on any given night.  That will catch you up.

There was not much programming on television last week.  Well, as always, something is always on but that something is not always worth watching.  I don’t even really watch anymore, I just need background noise for when I’m doing worthwhile endeavors like surfing YouTube videos and keeping up with my peeps via Facebook.

So, I turn on the television and pay no attention to it for the evening.  Or at least I think I do.  There is a chance that even when ignored the programming digs into my psyche and takes root.

Last week, I settled on BBT on TBS almost every evening I was online.  Did you know TBS plays it for three hours on Friday AND Saturday evening?

It does. And I had it on.

Late Saturday night or perhaps early Sunday morning, I had a dream.  A rather odd dream.  I dreamt the time was post-apocalyptic (if you have read more than one post in this blog you may realize that is a recurring theme in my dreams.   Don’t judge me.  Don’t analyze me.  Let’s stay focused on the post at hand here) and the BBT characters were the only survivors.  Well, the cast and the people in charge of the laugh track.  Because there was still laughter.

They were holed up in a local building here in my hometown that used to be a bank.  It’s a pretty white building in the “historic” (as historic as it can get when the town has been here for just over 100 years) downtown area.  I used to work across the street from it and daydreamed I could buy it and turn it into my own video production studio.  Ah, a different kind of dream.

As it is, the building is dilapidated and sits empty with boards in the windows.  It should be torn down.  But that’s another story.

Back to this story, the BBT cast holed up in this old building and tried setting up tents.  They couldn’t figure out how.  Enter Penny who just flipped the tent out of the box and it set itself up.  Cue laugh track.

The biggest laugh came when one of the characters (I’m assuming Howard) stated epiphany number one: the guys (all scientists) are handy to have around before the apocalypse (to maybe prevent it – even though they didn’t in this case) but not so helpful after the fact (when it came to surviving).

It was funnier when he said it.

Epiphany number 2 occurred after I woke up:  I really gotta lay off the BBT.  So, I’ll be watching something else this week.

Lady Gaga Paparazzi

The other day as I drove home from work Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi came on the radio.  As I’ve mentioned before, I live in a small town.  We only have a handful of FM radio stations.  Two are country, one is old rock, one is the Golden Oldies, and two are top 40.  I went through my country phase years ago.  For the most part I listen to the top 40 stations now.  So when Paparazzi played the other day it had been awhile since I last heard it.
