I think my blog is going to join Maxie’s and go renegade. I’m participating in NaNoWriMo and the 2500 words a day that are going into my crap novel are sucking all of the life out of my blog. I can’t seem to get it together enough to write a coherent, let alone mildly entertaining post.
A few thoughts I’ve had which, given a little time or effort on my part, could have blossomed into full-fledged posts:
- Hulk Hogan.
When I was younger I was a serious Hulk-a-maniac. My mom wouldn’t let me get the WWF magazines, but my cousin Michael who lived down the street did. My sister Lauren and I poured over those magazines and begged our dad to teach us wrestling moves. Fast forward to the present day. I may or may not have watched every single episode of Hogan Knows Best. I strong armed my boyfriend into letting me watch American Gladiators at his house every Monday night. Now Hulk has a new reality show on CMT, Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling. Danny Bonaduce gives me nightmares, but I still tune in on Saturday nights, if I can stay up until 10.
- Netflix is messing with my mind.
I currently have 42 movies in my Netflix queue. Why? Because I’ll go through periods in which I’ll add a ton of movies that Netflix recommends which I’ve never heard of. When these movies arrive 4 weeks later, I get all amped up for a pizza and movie night. Unfortunately, I open my little red envelopes to find I’ve got MirrorMask and Elling waiting for me. Two good movies, don’t get me wrong, but not exactly beer-and-pizza fare. On a Friday night, I’m not really in the mode to watch a Norweigan film with subtitles about a neurotic mama’s boy and his simple-minded, sex obsessed roommate. Sounded good a month ago when I was bored at work, though.
- Orange Soda.
I’m addicted to the stuff. Sure, who doesn’t enjoy a Sunkist every now and then, but I’m going through it like gang busters and I’m not sure why.
- Kath and Kim.
Is anyone else watching this show besides my friends and I? I love Molly Shannon and I want the show to be a success, but it kind of sucks.
