Every morning, I get to work and make myself a To Do list for the day. Or I make it the night before. Or I have stuff leftover from the previous day and THAT'S my To Do list. IT DOESN'T MATTER, my point is, I always have a To Do list of stuff. Just always.
After spending the morning doing everything BUT things actually on my
list, I looked at my sad little uncrossed-off list and started adding things I'd
already done just so I could cross stuff off. I wish I could tell you
that this doesn't happen often but I'm trying not to be such a liar
because Joe doesn't like it when I tell him stuff like, I don't know,
that I speak Urdu, which is the lie I told him BEFORE WE EVEN MET because
Natalie Portman taught me that lying is adorable.
I guess my
point is that I don't have one, I just haven't written anything
in YEARS and so this is me. Writing stuff. And throwing it all over the
internet. Hi, Internet!
So here's something you may not know
about, I don't know, LIFE. It turns out that if you spend all of Sunday
watching Game of Thrones, the weekend goes really, really quickly. Also,
here is some advice. If you're at the store because you tried to rent
movies but you've A) seen all the good ones or B) don't feel like delving into
the insanity that is Tree of Life on a Saturday night, and you decide instead that what you'd really rather watch is Game of Thrones
so you stop getting spoiled about everything and finally figure out
what the deal is with this Joffrey puke, but the library never has Game
of Thrones in because everyone else wants to watch it, too, and the
video store (Sidebar: Why do you call it the video store when they no
longer have videos? Discuss.) never has it either or they have every
disc BUT THE FIRST ONE so, yeah, obviously your only option is to buy
it but when you get to the store, they only have the blu-ray version
which is way more expensive (probably?), so you decide to be responsible
and only get the first season instead of seasons one AND two, and I'm just
here to tell you, go ahead and buy the second season while you're there, screw responsible, because what's
going to happen is you'll spend Saturday night and Sunday morning watching
the first season and then you'll realize you're going to run out of show
before you run out of Sunday, so your husband is going to have to go out and
buy the second season while you sit and fret about whether the store
will still have it and so, to make yourself feel better, you sing the song you made up about Game of
Thrones that goes (to the tune of the Lord of the Rings music): Game. Of. Thrones.
It's the game, it's the game, it's the game, it's the game. It's the
Game. Of. Thrones.
Which is a TERRIBLE song, way worse than the
Doctor Who song you made up that just goes: Doctor Whoooooooooooooooo,
Doctor Whoooooooooooooo, Doctor Who, Doctor Who... and so on.
I guess my point is, now we're watching Game of Thrones, which is
really cutting into my rewatching The X-Files project, but I will make
that sacrifice because KHALEESI'S GOT DRAGONS Y'ALL!
