Not my usual Technicolor show-stopping

Not my usual Technicolor show-stopping self the past few days. But hey, it's time for The Friday Five!

1. How many TVs do you have in your home?
2 - a little one in the boudoir and a bigger one that I bought when one of my old bosses was cleaning out his apartment in order to combine it with his place upstairs.

2. On average, how much TV do you watch in a week?
Too much. Hardly ever "live." We tape everything and then try to catch up.

3. Do you feel that television is bad for young children?
Sure. Parents shouldn't use the tv as a babysitter all the time, tempting as it is. Kids shouldn't have their creative energies stunted, they should be made to run around and play. (Of course, I'm such a winning example.)

4. What TV shows do you absolutely HAVE to watch, and if you miss them, you're heartbroken?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Sex and the City (Last year I also managed to keep up with ER, but I couldn't let myself get hooked this season. I'll just wait for the DVDs.) The season's barely begun and we're already behind.

5. If you had the power to create your own television network, what would your line-up look like?
Oh boy. Mostly British. All of the Jane Austen adaptations. As Time Goes By. Horatio Hornblower. The collected works of Colin Firth, Jeremy Northam, and Ewan McGregor. Other stuff, like Max Headroom, Buffy, Angel, X-Files, Star Trek (but only through Deep Space Nine). Rock 'n Roll Jeopardy with Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray as the permanent contestant. On the homemaking front: Trading Spaces. Katie Brown. Naked Chef and Nigella Bites. Martha Stewart's various shows. And the mushy reality shows on TLC - A Wedding Story, A Dating Story, A Makeover Story. Oh, and all the stuff that's good for me, like most of the lineup on Turner Classic Movies.

Oh yes, Shabby Chic! Someday I'll have a lovely collection of mismatched cups and saucers. :)
