I'll Give 'Em Something To Write About
I don't know how I have been so out of the loop on anything involving the entertainment industry, but somehow I just learned about the writers' strike a few days ago. Suddenly there's an explanation for the prolonged absence of all the shows! I was sitting here the other night and it suddenly occurred to me that I usually spend my nights parked in front of my t.v. watching one of my many shows. I began to wonder what ever happened to said shows? They had their usual "Fall Finales" which led into the seasonal "dead air" as I like to think of it, which is when I stop bothering to turn on the t.v. But they just never...came...back. I heard about the writers' strike and it all made sense. Oh well, I thought, they'll get it together soon. I mean, really, how long can they not air any of the good t.v. shows? And then I heard the news. The Golden Globes aren't happening. OH NO YOU D'INT! And now the Oscars are at risk, too? Okay, the wrath of Alicia is about to be unleashed, and people, it ain't pretty. Nobody messes with my awards shows, NOBODY. Maybe they can get away with the Golden Globes, but the Oscars? Apparently someone down south's craving a little @$$ whooping. All I know is there better be some Office, some Lost, some Heroes and some Grey's on my t.v. screen soon, and, come March, some over-dressed, cleavage-bearing celebrities giving over-dramatic, long-winded speeches. Then I can be truly happy.
