And Sometimes, You’re Jennifer Aniston

Jose: So who you live with? Your family? Your husband? Your boyfriend?

Me: No. I live with a roomate — a friend.

Jose: Ohh, you no have a boyfriend or husband? I always thought you live with them. You no have a boyfriend?

Me: Nope.

Jose: Why you no have a boyfriend?  You beautiful.

[Ed note: so only ugly girls don’t have boyfriends? Gee, thanks…]

Dear World,

Stop asking single girls this question.  It’s rude.  I’ve written this post before, can’t we move on? Why am I still given a sad smile and a sympathetic head nod when I say, “I don’t know…It’s not really my number one priority right now to have a boyfriend.”  I’m not single because I “can’t land myself a man”, or because I’m “trying too hard”, or because I’m too busy sluttin’ it up.  It’s not that I consciously don’t have a boyfriend, but I definitely don’t need one to make me happy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not down on love (I love love!), and I don’t despise the idea of a boyfriend (who doesn’t like spending time with someone they like?), but I do despise the fact that you think that I should just couple up with the next guy who wants to buy me a drink, because that’s what girls “past a certain age” do.

Listen, if you want to be my boyfriend, it’s not hard.  Just be cool, and interesting, and at least act like you like me, and I’ll consider it if I like you.  Because, ahem, I thought that’s how this girlfriend/boyfriend thing works? It’s based on liking someone — not the fear of being alone? Unless I got the wrong Life memo, in which case, please send me the updated version.

In the meantime, I’m gonna go watch some episodes of Lost, because I’m re-watching it from the beginning, and I don’t need to sit around pining after you like a bad Katherine Heigle romcom.  You are though, more than welcome to join.


Maybe Jennifer Aniston doesn’t even want a boyfriend

So it turns out I watched a lot of TV when I was younger

My friend Liz was awesome enough to introduce me to this video “clip”.  It’s more like a power hour of all the shows that were played as I grew up.  It’s been around since 2006 so I’m sure most have seen this, but who doesn’t love a bit of nostalgia?

My favorites?

  1. David the Gnome
  2. Doogie Howser MD
  3. Darkwing Duck (When I was 6 I walked around the house saying “Farkwing F*ck” until my mom made me stop.  I had no idea it was a bad word.  Oops.)
  4. Family Matters (and all of TGIF for that matter)
  5. Hey Dude
  6. Heathcliff
  7. The Muppet Show
  8. Inspector Gadget
  9. The Adventures of Pete and Pete (Ok, I never watched it, but I loved the intro song)
  10. Smurfs
  11. Rugrats
  12. Perfect Strangers
  13. Reading Rainbow
  14. Adventures with Gummy Bears
  15. Clarissa Explains it All (My roommates and I looked up Sam…not as dreamy as the 8 year olds us remember)
  16. Beetlejuice
  17. Double Dare (I wanted that Huffy bike like nobody’s business)
  18. Planet Earth
  19. Wonder Years (I actually cried when this show ended)
  20. Legends of the Hidden Temple (aka. “Where Lost got their inspiration for the creepy tomb”–Seth)
  21. My Little Pony
  22. Mork and Mindy
  23. Saved by the Bell (duh)
  24. Dinosaurs
  25. Bill Nye the Science Guy
  26. Animaniacs/Pinky and the Brain (I bought this for my brother for Christmas last year.  It’s not nearly as funny as it is when you’re 10)
  27. Alf
  28. Fraggle Rock
  29. Salute Your Shorts (best intro song EVER.  “Now get it right or pay the price!”)
  30. Tale Spin
  31. Fresh Prince
  32. Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers
  33. Duck Tales
  34. Muppet Babies
  35. Lambchop’s Singalong (the worst outro song EVER

Shows not listed (and absolutely should be since these are the BEST):

  1. Square One/Mathnet
  2. Ghostwriter
  3. Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?
  4. Doug
  5. Wishbone
  6. Arthur
  7. Step by Step

Um, yeah.  So I think I just recounted all the shows ever made.  Seriously, how in the world did I watch this much tv?  Did I miss any?  Is that possible?
