I’ve loved The Big Bang Theory since I saw the first episode. It was just one of those shows I could relate too. I’ve found I’m a lot like all four of the boys on the show (minus their intelligence).
I associate many things with many other things (Totally stole that from Katherine Hepburn via Desk Set). I used to say everything I ever learned I learned from a movie. I now realize that is not so but for a long time it felt like it was true. This is one of those times.
Big Bang has made me try things I wouldn’t have tried before like hot dogs and spaghetti and light sabers. It made me want to learn more about Physics which I found very interesting. Sometimes it influences me to read certain books. One I read was Flatland by Edwin Abbott. The second book Bean found in a thrift store. She immediately showed it too me and then went…”It’s not the finger…it’s the M-O-V-I-N-G Finger”…I laughed. The was a line from Big Bang. The book she found is Agatha Christie’s “The Moving Finger” and I can’t wait to read it.
I’ve always enjoyed finding books from other books as well. Right now I’m reading “Miss Lonely Hearts & The Day of the Locust” by Nathaniel West because I came across it from Lillian Hellman’s “An Unfinished Woman”. Sometimes life, books, TV and movies are weird like that, lol.
