Please Support PBS Programs, The Cure For Insomnia

PBS Programs, the cure for insomnia.
At my house, there is no cable TV. I have a digital antenna, which means I have a very limited selection of programming to watch. I get ABC, NBC, the CW network, a local station - WUAB, the THIS network, Univision and four PBS channels. I watch PBS a lot, especially at night. Please support PBS programs, the cure for insomnia.

Don't get me wrong. PBS does have some really good programming. I love anything by Ken Burns and the foreign news. But there are times that PBS stands for Pretty Boring Shit.

If I'm not feeling sleepy, all I have to do is put on a PBS documentary and within a half hour I'm out cold.

I don't know if it's because there are no laugh tracks or lively music to keep my blood moving. Even paced announcers and light soundtracks put me right out - especially the British reporters.

A friend of mine said, "I've watched so much PBS, I'm starting to talk with a British accent."

What is it about those Brits? They like to tell us boring stories and sell us crap on infomercials. Oxy Clean anyone? Or how about a Sham-Wow?

Last night, there was an in-depth expose on William Shakespeare. Being possibly the greatest writer of all time, I thought I'd settle in for the next hour and see what I could learn about ole B.S.

First, the British reporter whispered to the camera, like he didn't want anyone to know he was filming a documentary. My eyes started feeling heavy. As he droned on about all kinds of uninteresting tidbits about the great Shakespeare, I found my mind wandering. Ten minutes would go by and I had no idea what the hell they were talking about. The announcer kept whispering.

After forty-five minutes, I was ready to pass out.

I brushed my teeth and headed to bed.

I have A.D.D. My mind can get to lightening speeds in just a matter of minutes. I laid on the bed and tried to relax. But my mind had forgotten about the Bard and had jumped to some new blog ideas I had. I tried using the relaxation technique for better sleep my psychologist had taught me. No help. My mind kept racing.

I should have just stayed in that chair and I'm sure that PBS would have put me to sleep. But I didn't.

For the next four hours I tossed around, thinking about my blog. I couldn't remember a single detail of the PBS program on Shakespeare. All I remember is a lady in an ugly costume.

PBS programs can provide us with a lot of great, entertaining information. I'm especially fond of PBSKids and the programming they offer.

Right now, though, I need some rest. So please support PBS programs, the cure for insomnia.

Oh look... the life of Cleopatra....   Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
