Unexpected Media Manna

while grounded from foot surgery
  1. checking up on blogger friend posts
    you people inspire, provoke thought and make me a better blogger.
  2. catching up on the last three seasons of "The Office"
    never stopped loving Jim and Pam, finally started loving Michael.
  3. reading all 1488 pages of Victor Hugo's "Les Miserables"
    so much more to the story; Jean ValJean even more a picture of grace embraced.
  4. downloading the "List App"
    and getting a comment from B.J. Novak! What????
  5. writing thank you notes to the dear ones who brought food, flowers, cards, books, picnics, wine and smiles
    it is a privilege; why has writing a TY note gone out of vogue?
  6. binging on "Mad Men" again
    this stuff is art, I tell you, art!
  7. reading "Streams in the Desert" every day for a dose of consolation
    still relevant and salve to my soul (and sole!)
  8. discovering "Carpool Karaoke with James Corden"
    discovering James Corden!
  9. binging on "Gilmore Girls" again and again
    Stars Hollow is where I want to grow up.
  10. finding jet.com
    dog food, cashews, toilet paper and Muscle Milk to my door at Costco prices with no shipping charge! Yes, please.
  11. experiencing my first grown up comic book
    Hyperbole and a Half" by Allie Brosh. Taught me a lot.
  12. getting high score on "Words With Friends" AND highest average score per word
    this is a one time thing.
  13. hearing Adele's "25"
    "All I ask is if this is my last night with you, hold me like I'm more than just a friend. Give me a memory I can use. Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do. It matters how this ends 'cause what if I never love again?" Can. Not. Stop.
  14. rewatching the Harry Potter series
    it gets more spiritual every time.
  15. praying more and more and more
    and more and more and more.
