It all started with watching the occasional episode of Queer Eye....then, I noticed that they replayed the West Wing four or five times a day (and it's the Aaron Sorkin episodes -- as far as I'm concerned his last episode marked the end of it).

Then I became addicted to Texas Hold-Em. Celebrity Poker Showdown -- I find myself captivated. And last night's was one of the more interesting ones with Lauren Graham winning big... Anyway, I'm sure I'm world's worst poker player, but I can't help to laugh when people go in with hands that contain a 7 and a 2.

Worse yet, I keep watching Jefferson in Paris, a horrible movie that Bravo continues to show. It stars Nick Nolte and Gwyneth Paltrow, and it's a big yawn. That, and my recent visit to lovely Monticello, convices me that Jefferson was indeed a freakshow....my least favorite founding father.....a big perverted weirdo, even with his notable letter-copying inventions. However, I like the scenes in Versailles, which I think is why I keep watching it. That, and to figure out what is going on with Maria Cosway and Jefferson.

So, I need to stop watching TV.

I haven't seen the Jefferson movie, but I went to Mr. Jefferson's university.

Okay, the fact that the author of the Declaration of Independence was a slaveowner is definitely unsettling.

I liked his clock, and the fact that he liked using ditches instead of walls to pen in his cattle. That's clever.

The clock was neat, except that he didn't have enough room for Saturday (although that was a memorable, humanizing tour moment).

I hope we're talking about the clock in the entry hall that is both indoor and outdoor. ;)
