Sage’s Rage: Boob Tube

Posted on: August 13, 2009

My DVR is on the frizt again!  I have the kind that you get with your cable plan and for some reason every few months it stops working.  I think it’s a conspiracy because it always seems to mess up when there’s something really good I wanna watch.

What’s worse is when they fix it; all the stuff I’ve recorded is erased.   Last time I missed the BET awards but I guess it wasn’t that big a deal because they show it over and over until you’ve had enough of weezy, geezy and all those wanna be thugs who call themselves rappers.

I don’t believe one should fill up all their time with TV but a girl’s gotta have her guilty pleasures.  DVR is great because I can do what I need to do and then in little splurts watch the shows I like when I want and fast forward through the commercials. If there’s a hottie on the screen, I’ll even rewind to catch one more glimpse (umm).

I’m really excited about Run’s House new season and Project Runway which has found its way to another network.   I’ve been getting all the dish and dirt from my girl Wendy on her talk show.  I did not miss a day during her pilot season and not loving the fact that my DVR skipped three episodes this week;0  I just love singing the theme song, jumping up and down while ‘how u doin’ rolls off my tongue so naturally.   She is too much (in a good way).

In all the madness of my TV drama I decided to give up, go to the library and grab a book…

Reading is Fundamental

Any suggestions?

Well… what are you looking for. I love books that have anything to do with Haiti or Christianity. I like other stuff too. But those are my fav. Have you heard of Edwidge Danticat. Breath, Eyes, Memory… I think it made Oprah’s book club once.

I’ll keep thinking and get back to you. Oh did I say welcome back? Well welcome back. I think you brought the London rain to us :o)


I LOVE libraries. It’s actually one of the reasons I fell in love with Wesleyan. During this recent vacation I read a good mix of trash, work and world fiction and nonfiction. Colson Whithead’s new book is aight, Jennifer Weiner’s books are a fun beach/pool read, Cathie Black’s Basic Black is a good book for women and work, Tom Friedman’s Hot, Flat and Crowded are all good ones. Enjoy!

i’ve read breath eyes memory and it was amazing! i’m not too much of a fiction gal though. i just got malcolm gladwell’s outliers from the library. i’ll let you know if it’s a winner.

i love that cathie black book. very good advice! hot flat and crowed sounds scary;0
