Pacific Standard Time

I’ve lived on the East Coast most of my life. For almost six years I have lived on the West Coast. I like where I live. Besides the climate, I love Pacific Standard Time. Most things happen or are geared toward Eastern Standard Time. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like surprises (click here to see prior post).

So what I love most about Pacific Standard Time is that you don’t have to wait to see the results of such shows as American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, etc. You can see who gets kicked off before the show starts. Tonight I read who won Miss America, even though I don’t watch that show, I liked knowing who won before the show started.

I love American Idol (guilty pleasure) but I hate the elimination show. Why? They stretch it out to death. I just want to know who got kicked off. I hate when they take an hour to tell me that. So I go online and see who gets kicks off and then watch something else.

Awards shows like the Oscars, the Emmys, Monday Night Football, etc. are shown earlier, so I don’t have to stay up until the wee hours to see the end.

Pacific Standard Time rocks!

Plus you feel like you get to sleep in later and stay up later, guilt-free! I lived in Key West,Florida for awhile and I hated the time change. Nice sunsets though.

Hi Nadine. Thanks for the visit and comment on my blog.

Your blog looks very interesting. I will return and read more!

So, Nadine, since you are a writer of not only a blog, but a novel, I have a question. As a writer, do you really work so hard on character development, plot line, and dialog only to have someone skip to the last chapter? :)

I don't blame you though, I too hate the way they stretch out the elimination show and other things...my answer...TIVO!

TIVO rocks! You decide what you want to watch and when you want to watch it. I we record AI and a few other shows and watch them at our convenience so no more late nights for me either!

That is so cool!! I've never thought if that. I am in Central. I hate the elimination show on AI too. That would ROCK to see who gets off early! :) Thanks for coming to visit my blog!! Come back anytime!
