This is so true. Teenagers are being demonized. I mean, honestly, we are not all bad. I hate watching TV -- everything on it has gone downhill. It used to be funny/educational to watch but now it’s just terribly stupid and/or boring. I like your similes -- they were very good. Like the tea bag one – nice! Uh…. may I ask who Noddy is? I never heard of that. Have a nice day too!
P.S. Nice title!
You can write about writer's block and frustration etc? Cool! Well, I think that your early-morning ranting/rambling sounds a lot like mine, minus the Noddy part. I'd never thought about the weird animation... Well, this was very interesting to read.
I barely watch tv. They seem to make it with the assumption every-one has an IQ of 40. I only watch documentaries and even those are now dumbed down. I check the news and the weather and then read and write. If I lived alone I wouldn't have a tv at all.
