God, I could not wait to make that my title, and NO, if you were curious, it’s not the pronunciation of “puss” that rhymes with “fuss”.
Billy insists that he’s over Jersey Shore and doesn’t want to watch it (which was okay, because it meant I got to watch more Angel tonight), but he MIGHT come back if Ronnie once again becomes Single Ronnie (also possibly known as coked up Ronnie). Well, we can dream, since I SOOOO care about Billy’s feelings on my TV viewing habits and also? At least it isn’t LUX, so he can STFU.
Alright, so, quick blurb, but first … @TONicole and I found (well, SHE found) a way for us to use our phone for chatting without incurring international charges, since I live in America and she lives in America Jr. This is awesome on many levels, not the least of which being that I can treat you to this:
Me: Watching Jersey Shore tonight?
Nicole: I’ve only seen one ep and I think I’m gonna keep it that way.
Me: All I’m saying is, one day you’ll inexplicably find yourself watching a Jersey Shore marathon and then you’ll be hooked for life. It’s basically TV herpes.
Nicole: Haha, I’m going to try to avoid the herp as long as possible. I’ll just stick to reading your recaps, I’m sure they’re way better.
Me: I don’t think I capture all the trashy spirit, but I do try.
Nicole: [The recaps] are like a TV condom, giving me all the enjoyment with no risk of STD.
Alright, I promised blurbs and I need to go to bed soon so that I can be semi-alert for some Mexican food after work tomorrow and possibly a showing of The Green Hornet (someone has racked up viewer karma points, and his name is Billy). So let’s get going.
My favorite thing was them trying to get that stupid ball back. I don’t know, it was just kind of cute and fun and stupid, and the sort of thing that you do with roommates. I PREFER this show when it isn’t all bars and hookups and … well, no, I do like fist fights. I can’t be 100% classy all the goddamn time, right? And speaking of the sex, I’m glad it was mostly limited to Vinny making gross comments at Snooki and Vinny locking Mike’s drunk ass out of the smush room. Seriously, you guys? I thought we were going to see a Man-Man-Lady Threesome™ (Flight of the Conchords FTW!), and I can probably live a few more weeks without that.
Deena very clearly is imitating Snooki’s personality (anyone else catch the “Waaaah!”?), but I still can’t help it, I LIKE her. So much better than Angelina.
I also like how we’re starting to get the beginnings of people losing their shit. I think Sam and Ron are due for a dramatic breakup soon, and obviously things aren’t well with Jenni and Tom. So that’s all promising.
And last but not least … family dinner. I did laugh at Ronnie telling Mike to lay off the family shit, because honestly, that would annoy me too. But then, I’m not a megaslut famewhore, so what do I know? Still, you could tell that everyone was REALLY upset with them for missing dinner, especially the boys. I think the girls are kind of over it, but the boys haven’t really gotten the direct shaft yet. Still, all I could think of during this scene was how much I want sushi now, and how much I want to go to a beach bar. And I can! Because it will be 70 degrees and sunny here on Sunday! Suck it, northerners!
Well, that derailed. And again, all I’m thinking of is sushi and drinking on the beach. I’m gonna end on that note, with me in my happy place. But what did you guys think? Anybody else watching? Favorite moments? Thoughts on the new developments? Shock and awe that Sammi and Ronnie didn’t immediately burst into flames when entering a CHURCH? Although, come to think of it, we never actually saw them GO to church … Anyway. Comments!
