Adrenaline Rush


December 12, 2006: I received my video ipod from my generous gifting in-laws.



addiction?  yes.

addiction? yes.

January 27, 2007: I open the ipod box and start to figure out how the whole itunes purchasing works.  I had been told that 24, the TV series, was very good, so, I thought this could be my first purchase.  I risked, and purchased all of season 1 (they were in season 6 at the time).  I think I made the purchase at about 11:00 PM and had a flight the next morning with Brad and Schlaud (two friends doing a scout trip with me for a mission).


January 28, 2007: “Ding” the airplane bell rang, indicating it was now safe to turn on portable electronics.  I pulled out the ipod, plugged in the ear buds and began episode one, season one of 24.  Within 15 minutes I turned to Schlaud and said, “I’m hooked.”

April 14, 2007: I was completely caught up with 24 and ready to watch the last 4-5 episodes of season 6.  I wasn’t lying when I said I was hooked.  Many a night I found myself going to bed at 11:00 and watching not one, not two, but sometimes three episodes of 24.  

S0, the writers strike of 2008 had me extremely bummed out about 24 (thus we’ve had a year and a half hiatus from 24).


Go Jack!

Go Jack!

January 11 and 12, 2009: It’s back and as good as ever.  Ahhh, the adrenaline is flowing and I am very, very happy to have this little indulgence.  I don’t mind you confronting me about idols, adrenaline addiction, etc.; but please don’t call to do so on Mondays between 9:00 and 10:00 PM.

I’m going dark!


P.S. I have Wescott to thank for the addiction, he pushed it on me!

  1. Hey,it’s funny how different people can be. You love 24 for the adrenaline rush, I don’t like it for the exact same reason. I don’t
    like that feeling. In fact there is no chance of me ever being addicted to it. Because I simply can not watch it. I get too keyed up inside. Just interesting to me how different God makes us people.
