well, in the last 24 hours my toilet has overflowed all over my bathroom, my dog got into the garbage and had it strewn nicely all over the house, and i'm pretty sure there is a dead something somewhere in my house. cause it smells like dead something.
today is already better. i'm sitting on a bed with clean sheets (does wonders for the soul), listening to miracle fortress and drinking my coffee. there is still a plunger propped in my toilet from earlier, a stack of dishes waiting for their turn in the dishwasher, and enough dog hair to make a full-sized beulah clone.
but it is alright.
[back to the dog hair thing for a second: if anyone has a really high powered, dog hair capable vacuum that they're not using/want to give to a needy girl, i will be accepting offers at any time. thank you].
i have mentioned a few times how much i love breakfast. the food, the feeling, the light in the morning, sitting with coffee, and you're in pajamas. what is not to love? i get a joyful feeling just thinking about it. well, i love this blog called: simply breakfast. go there. i really wish my breakfasts looked like this everything morning instead of stuffing down a soy joy bar on the way to work.
oh listen, this has nothing to do with anything, but, i'm going to tell you anyway.
so i don't have tv at my house. no, that is not some sort of stance against the state of american entertainment. i mostly love american television. i'm just poor, y'all.
anyway, so i have netflix, a dvd collection, and the occasional redbox rental. for a couple of months, i have been watching law and order svu. i had never watched an episode, but for some reason, sitting alone in my house watching a show about sex crimes is all i have wanted to do. [i know..] also, maybe the weirdest part about it was that i started on the last season and was working my way backwards. it makes total sense to me, so whatever.
yesterday i was watching an especially captivating episode about a cult leader that conned all these women and got a bunch of teenagers pregnant [i know..] but man, i was into it. and in the middle of that darn episode, netflix conspires against me, and takes all of the seasons of law and order svu off of instant play. in the middle of searching for pregnant 12 year old melanie at the garbage dump. what???!
all of this to say, i am accepting recommendations for television shows. especially from those of you who have netflix.
and to return the favor, i will give you a rundown of the tv shows i am watching and loving:
1. friday night lights. i am not even going to try to give you reasons to watch it. i would actually suggest that you get netflix just so you can watch season 1-3. i cannot say enough about this show. i was skeptical too, but trust me on this.
2. mad men. listen to what i am saying, do whatever you can to try to catch up. season 4 starts july 25.
3. parenthood. just watch it.
alright, so there are my recommendations. do any of y'all watch those shows? tell me what you think. what else are you watching?
[post edit: as i was pressing the button to publish this, the apartment maintenance man knocks on my door. cue beulah peeing everywhere and barking, me frantically throwing on clothes, grabbing my underwear that was drying all over my dining room table, and opening the door with pajamas and a crazy face with acne meds dotted all over. did i mention his 10 year old kid was with him? pretty sure he was traumatized by the stray bra that was hanging on my bedroom door. uggggggggghhhh]
