I’m a big fan of fall. There is nothing better than walking out of my apartment, wearing a sweater and jeans, and feeling the cool, crisp air as I walk down the street. Summer is great and all, but having left school several years back, the only thing it brings back to me are nostalgic feelings of 3 months of fun. Unfortunately, my job doesn’t have a billing code for nostalgia. So I’m forced to work while all the little ones run through sprinkers, or whatever the hell it is I did during summertime before I went and got me a grown up life.
So with September literally around the corner, I’m getting more and more excited for the awesomeness that is fall. This includes great concerts, the changing of colors, brisk days, and, most important of all…
My TV shows are back. Everyone, my TV shows are back!
I’ll talk to you all about the best shows [for me] coming up, but seriously, I don’t care what you watch. You HAVE to be as excited as I am for all the great programming that will consume our lives and leave us as intolerable hermits until the holidays. How can you NOT be stoked for that??
Since the WGA had their strike, we’ve been inundated with reality television. Which is all well and good. I’ll be completely transparent with you when I say that watching people fight over money, bitch out over contests and argue over dumb shit is some of the most entertaining stuff ever.
But then you remember the glory of REAL television. Pithy one liners. Obsessable story lines. ACTUAL REAL CHARACTERS! Because let’s be honest. Reality TV? Furthest thing from real life. It’s like taking those dogs dressed as people and trying to pass them off as distant relatives at a family function. Sure, it might work for a little while, and possibly fool the younger kids. But you know something is up the instant they start to hump your cousin’s leg. And look embarrassed about it.
I’m fully planning on never breathing fresh air until May. Because it has been FAR too long since I’ve been able to gush over what happened on The Office, or freak out because of what happened on Heroes.
So this is as good a time as any to let you all know. I’m in a serious relationship. His name is DVR, and he does more for me than I could ever have hoped.
