wow, i just saw a sickeningly self-righteous commercial funded by the major american weapons manufacturers claiming that they’ve been irresponsibly persecuted by the goverment because the government can’t keep crime under control. their website is here. i support a certain amount of rights for gun owners, but i also support responsibility, and the manufacturers need to take some. people kill people, but they do it with guns. i will step down off my pedestal now. thank you.
teevee for me is like crack cocaine… something that i abstain from despite that fact that it’s highly addictive. i typically watch a total of two hours of teevee in a week, if even that. i was thinking about watching friends this year as well as will and grace, but i just don’t have the time on weekend nites. so, it looks like i’m back to just x-files and the practice, as i was last year. whoo-boy.
I had a dream about the price is right. I used to live for the days i would be able to stay home from school and watch that show. Whether i was sick, taking a day off, or having a snow day, i would always be tuned into CBS at the right time for Bob Barker and that giant freaking wheel. The giant freaking wheel was in my dream, too.
I haven’t seen it in years, though.
Anyhow… so, if my life’s teevee version is going anything like it would be if it was a Must-See sitcom, the girl would be chasing me now. Because… because i’ve been playing “Ross” my whole life (except for never having a pet monkey) (yet), and every girl has been “Rachel,” and eventually one of them has to turn around and notice me after i think that hope is gone. Except.. that sorta requires me to move on in an adult-like fashion, which i’m not so wonderful at doing. Of course, Ross had a crush on Rachel for about a decade. So, i’ve got nine years left, at least. And i’m set for the wait.
Wow, watching old Friends episodes is so strange. Watching Ross moon over Rachel while knowing the whole time that they almost sleep with each other out of pity in this season’s opener, or Chandler and Monica quipping at each other. And this bit… “She said she’s looking for a relationship with someone just like me.” “She did?” “Well, i added the ‘someone just like me’ part.” … err, and also a bit eery. Shades of real life… well … ugh, that’s a whole other post entirely. Stay tuned.
