Sad that this is what my life has come to. So be it. For now.
If this week was good for anything, it was TV. Important 2-hour finales and premiers in the same week is almost too much to handle. Somehow, we managed.
We started off with a doozie… the One Tree Hill season finale which left Raven fans everywhere wondering, which tri of the trifecta did Lucas Scott call at the end of the episode (i.e. who does he really love)?! The only encouragement in this season finale is that we can rest assured that season 6 is upon us.
My dismay over Lucas’ phone call was short-lived as I switched on the premiere of The Bachelorette faster than you can say “DeAnna Pappas.” It should come as no surprise that this show would take my mind off things... it was simply painful to watch. Bad enough that DeAnna’s apparent comfort mechanism is compulsive hugging, the situation was magnified by the fact that bachelor after bachelor attempted to twirl her, forcing her to stumble over the train of her dress. She did get a few of them back, though, and returned the twirl-favor. Always entertaining to see 30-something men twirl.
Of course, there was an American Idol viewing or two this week at 2620. Albeit mostly fast-forwarded through to avoid Ryan’s lame jokes and other obscure performances, we were really pulling for “Big David.” Tami voted enough for all of us and then some.
But tonight. Tonight is the culmination of all my TV dreams come true… it’s reality, its dance. It’s the one show I would give up all other shows for. It’s SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!!!! Needless to say, if you call me tonight between 7 and 9, I probably won’t answer.
In other news, I’m trying to sell my bike and bike rack so LC helped me create a craigslist ad last night. Although I am a newbie to creating ads on craigslist, LC is an old pro. Her most notable ad being the one in which she offered up my bedroom for $25 a night. And put my real email on there. Awesome.
Call me if you want a bike.
