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.
I would love to go to California to see a sitcom taped. There’s recently been a slight trend away from taping in front of live audiences (Malcom in the Middle, Ally MacBeal), and i know it won’t end live tapings for good, but i’d just love to see these people act. If someone with connections can get me some tix to Friends or Will & Grace, i’ll write you a song. Better than one of Pheobe’s, even. Really…
I even sound like Pheobe a little when i talk, but my logic circuits tend to function in a slightly more linear fashion. And i’m sitting here blogging about the #1 comedy on teevee, which i’m sure everyone else is watching right now anyhow. Oh god, make the awful Taco Bell commericals end…
