There's such a thing as comfort television, right? Like comfort food and comfort books?

I'm currently mainlining old old episodes of NCIS, because I find it soothing. The logic of re-watching procedurals aside (although, sometimes I really have forgotten who did it), it's making the world a bit better.

I need the world to feel a bit better for the following reasons:

1. I hate winter. I hate cold and I hate dark and I hate wet.

2. Several people I love and care about have had shitty news/experiences dumped on them recently, ranging from the mildly awful to the devastating.

3. I don't know if I mentioned here or not, but Dan's 3 week business trip overseas turned into six and a half weeks once he'd actually left the country. Yes, don't all jump in surprise at once.

4. There's some other stressful life stuff going on as well, that I'm not at liberty to discuss, but suffice it to say I feel Serious Life Decisions looming in the near future, and I just don't know how to deal with more of them.

5. I'm lonely. I live out in the middle of nowhere, and I miss people, but going into the city is a real pain and costs a lot.

On the plus side:

1. I have a seriously crazy amount of Skittles candy, which I bought sort of by accident.

2. The joy of hot Milo on a cold day is nearly worth having winter for.

3. I am secretly working on secret projects. They're kind of odd, and not really of much value to anyone else, but I like them.

4. I've been online shopping, and have new underwear. There's a lot of happiness in a good pair of new underwear :-)

5. I've moved a dresser into my bedroom, which means I can unpack my clothes out of suitcases for the first time in about ten months. Win!

6. Comfort television

7. New non-comfort television. It's Season Finale Time, and my fave shows have been bringing it of late. I live in fear of some of the cliff-hangers, but for the most part it's a good time.

I'm calling it a win. Sort of. Not a lose, in any case. A lose would totally have less candy, and absolutely no drawers full of fresh new pants.

Over and out.
