Some wives like chocolate, others like flowers, but I know what my wife really wants: Veronica Mars Season 1 on DVD. Didn't take too much brain power on my end to figure it out as she would drool every time the commercial for it was on TV. She was not feeling well Sunday morning, so I picked it up for her on my way back from church. She is addicted. She has just about finished watching the entire season already. These are 1 hour shows each, not 30 min shows! If you don't know, Veronica Mars is a teenager in Neptune, California (made-up city) and she takes up detective work, which she learned from her father who is a private detective. Every episode has it's own mysteries and every season has an overarching mystery as well. I am not addicted like her, but I do enjoy watching it. Every Wednesday night (9 pm on UPN) I don't even try to make an attempt to watch something because it would be futile. Well, as long as it keeps the Mrs. happy that is a very good thing. Guess I will have to go somewhere else to watch the Detroit Piston's season opener two Wednesdays from now. But Kristen Bell (actress who plays Veronica Mars) will probably be watching the Piston's game like me because she is from the Detroit area and is a sports nut. Found a couple of other Piston's fans in the building and now have fellow fans with whom to watch the games as the seasons draws closer. I have tickets to the second game of the season, which is there only trip to Boston this year. Can't wait! Go Pistons!!!
