New Obsession: Community

21 Jan

Because pictures make what I have to say seem more important.

I have been MIA for the pastcouple of days because of this special new thing in my life called Community.  You know that incredible TV show that apparently not enough people watch because it is currently MIA until the Spring (blasphemous!)?  Yes, that one.  Oh you thought I meant an actual community.  That’s cute.

My friend got me season 1 for my Bday and I watched all of season 1 in the span of 3 days, season 2 in the span of 2 and season 3 (well what’s been aired of it) in 1.  Now, that I have caught up and I have to wait until spring for new episodes I feel…well empty inside.  And so it is suiting for me to refer to the episode where Abed discovered that Cougar Town was going to be MIA for awhile and so he needed a new show.  Without a show he was an empty mute shell that stared at his computer screen.  This is me.  I miss it so much and I only finished the last episode 1 hour 22 minutes 43 seconds ago.

I miss their movie/TV references, Pierce’s inappropriate jokes, Troy and Abed’s bromance, that old guy Leonard who would be the coolest grandpa ever, and even that black guy who says “Pop pop!”.  And without Community I’ll just have to imagine that Jeff and Annie finally get together, that Magnitude gets a new catch phrase, that Abed finds the girl of his dreams, that Britta stops being…Britta (is it just me or is she annoying? Shirley at times too), that Pierce continues to tell stupid offensive jokes that I laugh at, and that there will be a paint ball episode at the end of season 3!!

I know Community hasn’t been cancelled.  But having to wait till spring is almost just as bad.  At least if it was cancelled there wouldn’t be any unanswered questions and even if there were I would be a man about it and accept fate.  But waiting sucks! Waiting means that I know there are unanswered questions.  Now everything is rushing to my head!! So many scenarios and options.  This will undoubtedly be my life for the next few months.

(insert sarcasm now) So thank you NBC for making me wait until SPRING and for not even providing an exact date but being broad and offering a season instead!  (continue with sarcasm)  And thank you Dan Harmon for creating such a wonderful show (not really sarcastic, this is true) that I am so addicted to I will forever feel like an empty shell until it’s back on air.  (sarcasm is still going strong)  And thank you to my friend who got me the show because it really hasn’t impacted my life at all (that was just oozing with sarcasm).

Also, I want to take this chance to say I have a crush on Joel McHale and he’s kind of old – okay 40, but considering my age he’s old and he’s probably married anyway – and also he will forever be the thinking or smelling guy from What’s Your Number? and that’s hard for me to muster.  Do I want to be with Jeff Winger or the thinking or smelling guy?  And is Joel McHale even similar to those guys? So many questions and no answers..all thanks to this new addiction that has taken over my life.

I’ve been hit with a sudden realization…I think I have an addictive personality.  But perhaps this is a blog for another day.

Okay, I’m off now to watch one of my favorite chick flicks, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days.  I apologize for being MIA for awhile, for overly gushing about Community and for those who have yet to watch Community but may begin after reading this…I apologize for dragging you in.  THERE IS NO WAY OUT!

Have a great day!

New Obsession: Style Me Pretty

12 Jan

I’m not an overly girly girl, at least I don’t think I am.  I love comic books, action movies, watching sports and I’m even the kind of girl who will rate celebrity females with my guy friends – but you probably don’t need to know that.  However, my new obsession brings out my girly side to the extreme.

I can now be found daily staring at pictures of weddings…my new obsession is stylemepretty.com, it’s a site filled with wedding after wedding.  All from DIY to high class ballrooms, to destination weddings.  I’m in love with every thing from the flower arrangements, to the locations (I have a passion for backdoor weddings), to the elegant dresses that make me want to get married 40 times.  I have spent hours looking through their archives and have over 50 weddings now saved to my bookmarks.

Outdoors with lanterns!? Please stop tugging at my heart strings!

There’s something so beautiful about a wedding, and I don’t mean the union of two people who love each other but I mean the event itself.  This is definitely a girlish trait but I think a wedding is more exciting than marriage.  I will without a doubt be the person who renews my vows yearly just for the sake of the celebration.  You know, once in Vegas, once on the beach, once in the backyard, once in a church, once done illegally…

One of the many dresses I gushed over (darn you lace!)

If you haven’t checked out Style Me Pretty yet, I strongly suggest you give it a go.  But I’m warning you, it’s addictive!  Side effects could include day dreaming about weddings, insisting on going to bridal stores to try on gowns (despite being single), adding “This would look wonderful at my wedding” or “I should get married here” into daily conversation (despite still being single), and possibly even settling just for the sake of having a wedding*.

I’ve just had a light bulb moment.  Is this why polygamy is so popular?

Have a wonderful day!

*You will know you are suffering from this side effect if the possible groom to be has witnessed the previous side effects and not taken off.  If he doesn’t notice that you’re cuckoo bananas, then he’s just as crazy and you’re settling!
