FOR THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 5, 2007
Our latest Monk Fan of the Week, Sandra, can relate to Monk because she too has OCD tendencies, including the meticulous organization of her closet. Here is her entry...
For the past 2 years or so, I've made every attempt to watch Monk on Friday nights, when it is aired. When it is not aired, I feel like I've been stood up :o)! I have some challenges with recording the shows (DVR -Timewarner Cable), so I left the recording of the shows up to the experts: my children.
Everyone that is close to me knows that Monk is my favorite show and knows what I'm doing on Friday nights! I'm so glad to see that there are new episodes as I think I've seen all of the old episodes.
I can relate to Monk so, so well as I do have some OCD tendencies. My biggest OCD tendency is my closet. All my clothes are categorized by type (pants, shirts, suits, skirts, etc) and are in color coded order. I don't have a very big closet but it must be orderly. I can't sleep well if my closet is disorganized.
One of my other OCD tendencies is my bed! It has to be made up every morning in a certain way. If I don't make my bed up, I can't rest knowing that it is not made. Moreover, I will make it before I get in it if it had not been made that day (this rarely happens).
I love Monk so much that I want to be in some episodes. I'm an African American Single Female - Mother of 2 boys and would like to see some diversity on the show. When I ask my African American friends if they watch Monk, the all of them say no and it is because there is no diversity. As I said, I love the show so so much and I try to encourage them to look at it because it is a WONDEFUL show.
I hope I'm chosen as the Monk Fan of the Week - I'm watching it now!! I also hope I get the opportunity to appear on one of the episodes - Please :o)! That would be the ultimate.
Think you deserve the honor of "Monk Fan of the Week"?
