I’m not one to feel the need to share current events, because if you read this blog, you likely also keep up the news, but a few noteworthy happenings occurred over the weekend:
- The world began to mourn the tragic passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman at the ripe age of 46. He was such a talented actor; the perils of drug addiction are seriously no joke.
- My Seahawks killed the Superbowl and everyone I know now owes me a beverage. Be on the lookout for a post of my favorite ads later in the week :)
- I bought a pair of new jeans (yay) and they ripped the first time I wore them (boo). Offering that information just in case that makes anyone out there feel better about themselves (or just, better than me) for three seconds on a Monday morning.
- And, my lastly, husband’s last SNL show. Here’s his pals sending him off:
Who’s ready for February 24th?! #LNSM
Maybe this will be my last day of bringing up “end of the year/beginning of the year” kind of stuff. I’m aware that it’s already the 3rd, but I subsequently make no promises.
I’ve spent the last day and a half binge watching 2 full seasons of Girls, finishing off a season of Louie, and almost catching up (not really, I’m still way behind) on SNL. That’s right, while all of you have been keeping the gyms in business with your new years resolution-keeping, I’ve been lying in bed, borderline motionless, watching obscene amounts of old television. Is winning still a thing(?) because #WINNING feels appropriate.
My thoughts include: Lena Dunham’s a goddess, Louis CK is mastermind and Seth Meyers will later in life be my husband, but I don’t think any of that’s new information. It’s no secret I love TV comedies, and every time I watch something that’s new to me and awesome, I want to shout it from the rooftops. This is why I envy Emily Nussbaum so much — because that’s literally her job. She lives in Brooklyn and watches/critiques television for a living. AKA Merriam-Webster’s definition of “livin’ the dream.” I had the privilege of meeting her at a talk show of sorts in the fall of last year immediately fell into hardcore girl-crush mode.
She wrote this article about the best television of 2013 and because I think we have similar tastes in television
and I follow her twitter-feed like a blind puppy, I’ll likely be giving Scandal, Always Sunny, and I suppose (finally) Mad Men a chance this year.
Not that I don’t watch enough TV to begin with, but are there any shows you’re rooting for in ’14 and/or love from ’13? Since my sickness is holding me back, I need to at least make sure my Netflix account is getting a proper workout this year.
