Upgrade for your TV

5 Mar

26 years of life have taught me that there are very few non-douchebags in this world. Of the small number of quick-witted, non-douchebags, a surprisingly large number have never watched “30 Rock.” Pretty shameful really. Definitely funnier than “The Office” (post season 3), and yet shockingly under appreciated.

Those who enjoy shows like “CSI: Miami” or “Celebrity Apprentice” should ignore this recommendation. You most likely have no sense of humor, would hate this show, and could definitely be a douchebag. 

Tracy: I’m gonna make you a mix tape. You like Phil Collins? 
Jack: I’ve got two ears and a heart, don’t I?

Upgrade for my residence

Mr. Obama and his large, fancy tax credits have pushed the fiance and I into house hunting. He’ll be moving to my small-ish college town this spring, and we figured that finding a decent starter home in between wedding showers and wedding planning might spice up our already packed schedule. If all goes as planned, my stress levels will be racketing up to mach five.

I’ve watched more than my fair share of HGTV, and have a (perhaps) overdone list of “must haves” which is obviously not in line AT ALL with our budget. I went to see house #1 last week and may have gotten carried away talking about knocking down walls and adding new pedestal sinks. Please, creating an open floor plan a few weeks before your wedding is a sure-fire way to marital bliss right?

We’re going out with the realtor on Saturday to see all that this depressed housing market and shitty economy can offer.

Things to Ignore:

The Bachelor. But. I. Just. Can’t.

I even read the spoilers, which of course made me want to watch all the more. Given that tonight is the finale, there will be overwhelming amounts of over-emotional girls. There will be overdone romantic speeches. There may even be prom dresses involved. I hate all those things, yet I have the DVR recording every minute, just in case I miss some of the disaster.
