FOR THE WEEK OF JANUARY 29, 2007
Our latest Monk Fan of the Week, Andrea, is enrolled at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and watches Monk on DVD while out at sea. Here is her entry...
I think what draws most people to Monk is that there is a little of him in each and every one of us. And the fact that he is human, and that he has those odd idiosyncrasies, it lets us know that it is okay for us to as well.
We can all relate to Mr. Monk. He gives me hope letting me know that even if people think I am crazy, there is a bunch of crazy people out there, so life is okay.
The first time I watched Monk, I got hooked! I am at times OCD and to see a show about a man doing things that I do or worrying about things that I worry about made me feel normal!
I am a very big clean freak. I dislike when people put things on my desk that have touched the ground because that is so unsanitary. Also, when I walk, I can not walk on the cracks on the ground. If I walk on the crack with one foot, I must with the other foot, or else I feel uneven. Oh, and I love when things are even. I just feel so at peace. I donít necessarily have his fears, but I have the little habits he does day to day.
Since last year, I have been unfortunate and have NOT been able to watch MONK episodes. It saddened my soul. I started going to a military academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and nobody is allowed to have a television in their room and there is only a five in a recreation room. However, they are always taken and I am at a loss.
I bought a couple MONK seasons on DVD, and if I didnít have them while I was out at sea, I would not have been able to bear life on a ship. Watching Monk was my escape.
Every time I watch Monk, I feel a little better about life.
I donít think I am the Monk Fan of the week/month/year, but I do believe watching Monk has given me happiness and hope! I just love it!
