Quality time with the Mama

These past few days have been excellent! The Mama and I got to spend some quality time together as we laid about the house. I love quality time!

First, we watched her recorded episodes of Most Haunted. The Mama laid on the bed, and I cuddled up at her feet. The Mama is a huge fan of both the show and Derek Acorah. I like watching it too as those silly humans go traipsing about in the middle of the dark as if they can't see anything. They need to bring cats with them! We'd have no problem telling them what was making those nasty creaks, thumps, or bangs!

Then, we settled in for the first two DvDs in Season One of Lost. The Mama has never seen the show so we decided it would be a good idea to just try renting some of the DvDs to see if we might like it. I was a little put off by the fact that a dog survived the plane crash, but there were no cat survivors, but the Mama reminded me that maybe no one brought a cat on-board with them. I think both the Mama and I are hooked on this show as well.

Finally, the Mama made some popcorn (yummy!), patted the couch, and the two of us watched another R-rated movie: Stay. I love the fact that the Mama invites me to watch all of these shows with her, but this one, I could have done without. It put me to sleep within minutes! The images were fantastic, but the storyline was dull. Not even that sassy human, Ewan McGregor, could save this one.

Well, hopefully, the Mama will rent more of Lost so we can continue finding out what happened to these poor people on the island. Maybe even Zeus will join us instead of being standoffish. Who knows?

Do any of you have favorite shows you watch with your Mamas or Papas?

My momma like scarey stuff. I haven't watched any of it with her yet though. Mostly I sleep when the T.V. is on.

We only watch a little TV and don't have cable, but we do watch Lost. Mom doesn't fly any more so that first episode really got her all scared. She said it was one of her nightmares. I guess if I were in a big out-of-control bird flying every which way, I'd have nightmares too.

Anyway, as if our Mother's Day gifts weren't enough for her, she got herself the complete set of Nowhere Man (UPN, 1995-96). So we've been watching a couple of episodes on the weekends. I think she has a secret crush on Bruce Greenwood.

We all watch Lost every week - it's the only show the Mom watches. Except an occasional Oprah. We didn't watch season 1, either - after the first show of season 2, we bought the season 1 dvd set on sale and watched it ALL in one weekend to catch up. Dad is watching basketball and yelling at the Mavericks, and the small Boy watches Disney shows.

We never miss The Office (American version, but we also find the British version HILARIOUS), Saturday Night Live, Amazing Race, and my mom was so sad when Arrested Development was axed.

Mom and her friends LOVE Big Brother during the summer--I just don't get that.

Gemini said...

Kukka, we watch the Amazing Race too! Momma was looking at Most Haunted and said it sounded interesting and she might have to watch it. Here we have lots more television channels and a bigger television so maybe she will.

The only thing that I watch with the humans is Napcar. I love the sound of them cars goin' round and round. I think I need a nap now.
