My shrink? Oh honey, I only go to him for refills.

I did not just polish off the entire first season of Will & Grace. Ok, I did, but I was painting my kitchen cabinets. That makes it sound much better. Doesn't it?

Maybe I’m just getting stupid. I mean, I’m watching Will & Grace and I actually laugh. I’m not sure if it’s funny or if I’ve just lost that many IQ points. At least I’m aware of the problem. It’s a little cute, but I don’t know if it should be making me laugh. Sadcakes. I’m watching it ALONE and I constantly feel like I should apologize for having laughed. Thank god I have a mini-break coming up in a few weeks. Because this is what I have come to.

If you think about it, it's probably more shocking that it took me this long to watch it. A series about a woman living with her gay best friend? But you know how I loathe American sitcoms. And this one is no different with its predictability and its creepy laugh track...yet the two leads really pull it off...actually, no, her assistant kinda steals the show sometimes...Ok, that's way more than enough of that. Let's all forget I'm even watching it, shall we?

Ok, now I'm really going to stop going on about my LSATs, as I took a 3rd practice test and got a 159. So let's see, shall we? That gives me a 160, a 158 and a 159. Yes, studying was such a good idea. I think it's time for a new book.

The little woman is home alone this week, as D is off with his family in Omaha, Nebraska. His brother drove up to see the game this weekend (that side of the fam are all big OU fans...hee hee) and D is enduring the 12 hour trip back today and will fly home on Wednesday. So I get to watch all the bad TV I want! Actually, today I cleaned the bathroom, started painting the kitchen and studied (which included writing my god-awful personal statement). Well, you know, after all the male strippers left and I was out of bon-bons, what else was I going to do?

And for no reason, I woke up with this song in my head...

Why don't we have little bars like that here?

I'll admit to watching Will & Grace. I can't stand Jack at all, but I adore Karen and she can make me snort and guffaw in very inappropriate ways at very inappropriate things.

Ellen Aim said...

Yeah, Jack actually just makes me cringe most of the time. Karen, on the other hand, just gets better and better.

Veloute said...

Okay. Now I have to check it out.

Will & Grace is funny, Jack is an idiot, but Karen makes the show.

And that's from a straight man who owns all the seasons in individual releases and is annoyed by the big fat boxset they just put out a month or so ago, because fuck me for supporting them for the past 5 or 6 years as they came out one season at a time.

The stunt casting of celebs gets kinda old after awhile but it's still a fun show.

Ellen Aim said...

Vel: You should. Great lines.

Mob: lol, I know how you feel. Yeah, I'm enjoying it...I'll get comfortable with admitting it soon enough.

Karen in a nutshell:
Gosh, I don't think I've ever been stressed out. I mean, why would I be? I got practically no responsibilities, my job's a breeze, and I got a killer rack! Good morning!
