Fresh Young Minds

My pc is located in the living room right next to the television, and nine times out of ten, if you were to drop by to visit, the tv would be on. I may not be able to tell you what is on but I like the noise. If I actually sit down on the couch to watch tv, I fall asleep. My hubby can not understand how I can sleep through the screaming and body parts flying or blood dripping (I like horror movies) but turn that noise off and I will wake up. When I do go to bed, I will wash a load of clothes or turn the dishwasher on to provide a little noise so I can drift off to sleep. I used to have a fan on by my bed for the noise but he took that away from me...he said I was freezing him to death.

Anyway, all of that rambling really has nothing to do with what I wanted to talk about tonight...I go off on tangents rather easily! I wanted to ask you if you have ever seen Twilight Zone The Movie. It is an older movie but one of my favorites. I had not seen it in quite some time and I just watched it on tv tonight...actually this morning at about 4am or so. One of the stories in the movie is about a group of Senior Citizens sitting around and chatting about their days as children. They started discussing the fun games they played and wished they could go back to those days. Of course, they enter The Twilight Zone at that point, and they are children again running around playing games. Whoever cast those children in the movie did an amazing job for they are the perfect counter part of the Senior roles! Anyway, it does not take them long until they realize, they do not really want to be children again. They choose to go back to their nice warm beds in their old worn-out bodies but they return with Fresh Young Minds. Don't you just love that thought?!

Happy Scrappin!

Found your blog through and just had to say that I am the same way about the tv. It is on, alot of times on Football or baseball games, but I could never tell you what the score is :-) It is just on for noise. I do the same thing at night when I go to bed. So I get ya ;-)
