24 Lessons for Life!

I decided that I'm going to wish a bad case of hangnails or something of equal suffering to all of you who have ranted and raved about 24 over the past few years. I have chosen to not get involved in the weekly water cooler, online and f2f conversations about this show... Until this past Friday night when I was exhausted (thank you long recovery of burnout) and it was blizzarding outside. I stopped by the local VHQ (similar to Blockbuster but better deals!) and rented Season 1 of 24. It's addictive! I have to find out what happens next between 7:00 and 8:oo. But I have learned some stuff that I thought might be helpful for you today!
  1. You can have a cell phone conversation that is deep and full of words of love and commitment while lying underneath a car.
  2. Never trust someone with a gun... even if they seem nice.
  3. Crisis brings out the best and worst in people.
  4. People will do crazy things for $300,000 as the computer programmer did in season one.
  5. Make sure that you always say, "I love you" as you don't know what will happen.
  6. When you are lost in the wilderness, do not try to outsmart the GPS... or stop following the creekbed.
  7. Don't try to cover up a conspiracy, it always comes back to bite you on the bottom!
  8. Develop good friendships and keep those people close to you.
  9. Sometimes people who seem a bit rough around the edges (like Keifer) are better than those that are slick and seem to have it together (like the Serbian meany-pants killers!)
  10. And the most important, if you are knitting while watching a nail biter show like 24, make sure that you pause the show when you need to focus. Otherwise, you'll make a major mistake and have to rip out the last hour of knitting!

I leave you with a Flower Power Washcloth that was from the 24 watching marathon! Wouldn't that bring a smile to your face as you washed your face with it in the morning?

I LOVE 24 and even got my parents hooked on watching it! We only started watching it Season 2 so I haven't seen Season 1. I think we're going to have to rent it and do a marathon one of these weekends.

Forgot to say that I love your face cloth. You are the Knitting Queen!

PS Thanks for the picture in the mail. Child #1 likes to carry it around the house with her and talk about you.

I have never watched much of 24 maybe 1 show. But it sure seems like i would learn many valuble lessons from it!

I have tried, repeatedly to get into the show. Just can't. Everyone else I know (even my parents - go figure) love it, but me, not so much. LOVE the washcloth though!
