Oh idiot box, how I’ve missed you

in Downtime

I watch waaayyyy too much tv. So the fall tv season is both a blessing and a curse to me–I get entertainment back after the drought that is summer television, but I now also have a “real” reason to stay home and watch tv rather than attempt a social life (what? My Tivo can only record one show–double booking is hard!).

So now, all my friends start to come back (well most of them) and we get to catch up and fall right back in that comfortable relationship. There are new shows to meet, and see if you’re on the same wavelength. Some of those end up being a great addition to the group. And some, it’s kind of like dating…you give it one, maybe two tries before you realize that while they’re perfectly nice, they’re not doing much for you in that way. Others, you know just from looking at them that they’re that obnoxious douche-bag at the bar that you’ll never be willing to spend even a second with.

Of course, just like with your real relationships, there are those in the group that are known for being fun but without much substance, those that just straight up make you laugh, those that make you examine your relationships, and those that are way smarter than you, but you still like hanging out with them cuz they’re kinda cool under that layer of dork.

Right now, I’m sadly excited about the return of all my little friends, with all their personality quirks, dramas, insane stories, and beautiful people.

I obviously need a life.

Ugh I watch way too much TV too. I almost have to stay home on Fridays so I can catch up!

Agreed! I’m so excited for fall tv. DVR is going to be working double time!
