Don't Say Mrs. HM Never Gave You Anything

Now that I'm retired, I don't really have a schedule. As long as I make a daily trip to town for my 44 oz Diet Coke, and serve up something for Farmer H to eat every evening, the other 22 hours a day are mine. Now, I could use that time to improve my geography skills (have you heard, ENGLAND is an ISLAND!), or clean up my dark basement lair, or work on a cure for Idontwannadoititis. But I'd rather not.

Like right now, I could be revealing the latest attempt of Farmer H to possibly kill me, or his latest infraction of my ever-changing arbitrary rules. But those can wait. Because I've discovered the most incredibly time-consuming website ever!

If you're a fan of television, especially vintage shows and actors, you will not regret checking this out. Just don't do it when you have limited time. I will not be held responsible!

I'm not even sure how I got there. I think I had looked up an old movie on IMDB. I saw it last night on TCM, just the middle part, and was curious. The title was "Butcher, Baker, Nighmare-Maker." It's a really bad horror movie from 1982. Then I got to looking at some other horror-ish movies. And somewhere down the line I got to "The Birds." And from there, I don't even know the connections, I found a site with Suzanne Pleshette being interviewed about her career.

Sweet Gummi Mary!

I spent several hours listening to those interviews. While doing other time-wasting computer activities, of course. That Television Academy site also has a list of TV shows, with some interviews concerning them. All you have to do is go into the ALL INTERVIEWS part, and you can pick SHOWS or PEOPLE or the other stuff, and have many glorious hours of entertainment. IF you like older shows and actors.


As long as I have internet, this might keep me out of trouble for a while.

Oh no! No No No
I spend far too much time at IMDb already.

It's GREAT! Last night, I listened to part of an Ed Asner interview, and then about 2 hours of Sharon Gless's career history. I was a major fan of Cagney and Lacey. I hate to be an enabler...but I bet you could pick an interview, and still enjoy IMDB while listening to it.

Of course I could and have done in the past, but I have other things that are crying out to be finished.

I know how that goes. I COULD be cleaning up my lair while listening to those interviews...but I don't. If I'm in my internet mode, I'm not in a chore mode!

I spend endless hours trolling Pinterest, much to HeWho's dismay. I get inspired with things for him to do. I ususally do that while watching TV in the evenings. I listen to audio books while doing walk around chores, but discovered that I can listen to the book while simultaneously doing crosswords on my phone! Total waste of time! Do I really care? No, maam, I don't!

I worked hard to earn my free time, and by cracky, I'm gonna use it as I see fit! I get mad at Pinterest, because I don't have an account, don't want one, and I can't get into what I go there to see.
