Adore & Abhor (an homage)

Adore:
* I absolutely adore the program Estudio 2 on the Estrella network (check your local listings). I'm not sure that any description I provide would be adequate, so I encourage you to check it out. It's on from 6-7p here in Houston, which means I come home from a long day of doing nothing, turn on the TV, and let the waves of good feelings wash over me like the warm, salty, slightly oily surf down in Galveston. Granted, I speak very little espaƱol but it really doesn't matter when you've got scantily clad latina go-go dancers and a midget. (The luchadores are el mas bono.) Honestly, I'm not sure that knowing the language would help with understanding this program, nor do I care.

Abhor:
* I abhor twitter. I'm not one of these idealists who thinks that 140 characters is the death of communication. Well, yeah, I am, but that's not really the reason I hate twitter. I hate twitter because the urge to follow celebrity tweets is irresistible. I love feeling like I just got a text message from my closest friend and knowing what they're up to, like red-carpet events and private screenings with backstage passes or jetting off to remote beaches on private islands. Damn you @hotakotb for making me want to be part of your inner circle!!
