The Beauty of Memory Lapses...

Ok, Lately I've been watching old reruns of my formerly and still favorite shows. The one thing I'm gaining from these episodes is, I can't remember seeing some of them. How can that be?....

"You guys ought to see the way she works her nails across my back. Ooooo! She's a maestro. The criss-cross, the figure-eight, strummin' on the old banjo. And this wild savage free-for-all where anything can happen."
- Kramer, in "The Pie"

"I did something stupid."
"What'd you do?"
"Well, I was shaving, and I noticed an assymmetry in my chest hair. And I was trying to even it out. And the next thing I know... Gone!"
- Jerry and Kramer, in "The Muffin Tops"

Now, I can tell you that while Seinfeld was in the filming process I did not miss a single episode, It was the humor in my life then and I lived from week to week for Jerry and Elaine. However, I have come to the conclusion that the slightly aging memory cells do have their advantages, some episodes are like brand new....Who Knew...

I think it's because as TV fans, we dont remember the small trivial things...just the whole basic premise. You know? Cuz I totally get what you mean...the other day I was watching FRIENDS (which was and still is my show!), and Joey said, "She had the biggest adam's apple, I've ever seen" and I do not remember him ever saying that. Weird, huh?

It is weird huh, BTW, I like Friends too, but also SATC (Another one I lived for too), 6 Feet under, and possibly a few more humorous one too.

...and if I wait long enough to watch them, everything that is old will be new again, Woohoo!
I like your new pic. Is this your artistry?

Speaking of pics - how do I get mine there? I can be such a dummy.

I don't wax nostalgic over TV shows. I love a few when they're fresh and new. Hate reruns with a passion (unless it's an episode I missed). I find that with old shows - you just can't go home again. My problem is that I rarely know what the name of the shows are so I never know when or where they are. I can be such a dummy.
