Guys, again … I know I sound like a broken record but I’m really sorry about how shitty I’ve been at blogging lately. And I really do mean it. Still, I have to be honest and say that it’s probably going to get worse before it gets better. This is my last week of work, which has been hectic in and of itself, but I’ve also been spending my free time here trying to sell my furniture on Craigslist. (God, I am a shitty employee.) And then I pretty much go straight home and get right to packing. Or, on days when I just can’t take it anymore, I take a nap and THEN pack. It’s an exciting life I lead.
As such, I am terribly behind not only on blogging but also just on watching TV in general, which would be sad if I weren’t dead inside from the soul-crushing experience that is moving. Not that I’m being dramatic. Okay, I am, but I learned it from watching LUX. And also, no one ever loved me.
Anyway, it’s all a damn shame because there’s been some really good TV on lately. So I’m just going to share my very briefest thoughts on what I’ve been watching, what I’ve missed, and get back to this whole “work” thing.
Alright, first off, Chuck. Obviously, this was a great episode this week. I’ve got to say though, they’re making me nervous, taking me right to the edge before pulling me back with getting rid of characters. I mean, first Awesome and Ellie (who, thankfully, are staying), and then Casey. And now we have CIVILIAN Casey? Does not compute. Still, it was nice to see a little piece of his backstory, and maybe where he gets some of that soft spot for Chuck and Sarah. Did anyone else just want him to run off with Kathleen and Alex into the sunset? I mean, I didn’t, but … I wouldn’t mind seeing that story revisited. Because surely even Casey isn’t that inhuman … right?
Parenthood continues to be awesome, and this week I did really enjoy Erika Christensen, AND that she rocked the swimsuit in spite of not having the perfect tramp-stamped body. I loved her conversation with Peter in his office, where he remembered her swimming accomplishments–very cute all around. And it’s interesting, because I obviously don’t have/want kids, but I still totally am down with judging parenting, and I’ve got to say–even though she totally picked the wrong time and place for it, I wasn’t completely opposed to her trying to make the kid sink or swim. Mostly because I am not for the touchy-feely pussification of today’s youth. Why back in my day … but seriously. My parents didn’t get in the pool with me at swimming lessons, and I didn’t have any floaties. My grandma watched from the bleachers while I got dragged out to the deep end and sunk like a stone, and then she told my mom all about it and they had a good giggle. But I mean, I lived, and I by the end of it all, I could probably at least back float long enough to not die, which I think was all my mom really wanted.
And I mean, I could swim … just not well. But this had nothing to do with my parents not getting in the pool with me, it’s just that I am sadly unathletic. In fact, in middle and high school, they made us do swimming tests and that’s how we got divided into groups for gym class. This ultimately led to me ALWAYS being in a group with the special ed kids, which, while embarassing for me, did leave me with an enormous stockpile of hilarious stories, none of which are appropriate for a public forum.
That was a pretty serious tangent. Anyway, point is, I don’t think people should raise their kids to be bitches. I mean, Willie Nelson even sang a song about it. It’s called, “Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Bitches,” and I think those are words to live by.
As for things I have not watched … Modern Family was a repeat last night and I didn’t realize I had DVRed Scrubs until I was already to tired to live watch it. Also, I didn’t watch Justified on FX (I think it’s on FX … right?),but I do have some interest in it and I was wondering if any of you watched it and what you thought.
Oh, but I HAVE been watching RuPaul’s Drag Race when it’s on, mostly because it’s easy to tune in and out of while it plays in the background. And I love it, as Patty predicted.
What have you guys been up to?
