As we are finalizing our plans to vacation in the mountains of Colorado,
I only have one concern, can I survive without Survivor? Yes, I'm addicted.
Right now I'm developing some strategies to make it without my weekly
Wednesday night fix. For instance, instead of going shopping at the Safeway
in Gunnison, we can try to live off the land. We could bonk a chipmunk
upside the head, or throw a rock at one of the birds. I'm sure there are

of aspen branches and try our hand at spear fishing.
We could have contests to see who gets the last cupcake or gets to use
soap when they shower. And every three days we could have a tribal counsel
and vote one of the members of our family off the mountain. If somebody
doesn't pull their weight, we'll snuff out their torch, and send them packing.

if it means being alone.
So, how will I survive without "Survivor?" I'll talk to Susan about
the "living off the land" thing, complete with the competitions and tribal
counsel, but I bet she tells me to set the VCR to record the show while
I'm gone and catch up on all the nitty gritty details if I survive the
