auto tune + inspiring women
anyways - the point is that when i come home on weekends to spend with dad and friends i actually get to watch live television, complete with commercials. i forget how much i miss it. and i'm impressed at how funny some of these commercials are! this one had me rolling this morning...
i want to hug that man. so awesome.
also - i watched a couple of really awesome tv shows last night.
first was missing - about a former cia agent whose husband is killed in a terrorist attack and then her child is kidnapped. it is full of action and great twists... and come on. i love ashley judd. she rocks my world.
then last night we watched the season premiere of scandal about a lawyer, played by the powerful kerry washington, who keeps scandals under wraps to protect her clients. excellent, excellent show. dad has already agreed to dvr all the future episodes for me to watch when i come back to visit.
i think the reason i am so into these shows because the women are strong and powerful and really go after what they want. who feels like they could definitely use a little more of that in their life? i feel like i have focus and drive but i definitely don't have it at the caliber the characters portrayed in these shows do. call me lame - but having a litte bit of inspiration in the form of explosively determined and poised women (even if from a tv show) drives me a little to be more driven in my daily life.
have you seen any great tv shows lately? or have you been inspired lately by a great female character in a book or movie? i'm opening myself up here for katniss mentions, aren't i?? - i really need to read that book.
