It’s time for a drink.
Because we’re busy. Because dinner consists of Cheez-Its and seaweed snacks. Because I’ve been trying to perfect a granola recipe for you for the past six weeks. Because I’m failing at granola.
If we were at happy hour, I’m pretty sure I would do nothing but talk your ear off about the TV shows I’m obsessed with. We’d probably do a quick recap of Girls because I still can’t even look at a q-tip without wanting to throw up. Also, I just love Adam so much I want to punch him in the face. Then, we’d have to discuss Mad Men! But only through season three because, in proper Mansee fashion, I didn’t start watching the show until….um, a month ago? I like to jump on bandwagons three years after everybody has jumped off. It’s my thing. And then. THEN. We talk about Scandal. I mean, what? How I even function in real life when I’m so obsessed with Olivia Pope and her life is beyond me. I rarely watch it in real time because it’s on at 10 p.m. and by Thursday I’m ready to go to bed at like 4 p.m. Therefore, Scandal has become a Friday night ritual for me that requires a lot a wine and a lack of friends.
Still single by the way. Shocking.
I’d also tell you about my run in with three coffee shops last week that offered me delicious coffee WITHOUT a side of Wi-Fi and almost ruined my life. (okay not true.) I’m incredibly lucky that I work in an office that allows everybody to work from home on Fridays, and while I don’t mind working in the office it’s always nice to be able to wear pajamas all day (certainly makes the transition from work to Scandal/wine time much easier). Last Friday the internet at my place was super wonky and I just could not deal. No biggie – I live in an area crawling with coffee shops so this was not a problem, right? WRONG. Apparently we don’t believe in Wi-Fi anymore because people should be enjoying coffee while reading a book. Or talking. With their mouths. To a real life person. Whatever.
Can we talk about music for a second? Mainly, I want YOU to tell me what I should be listening to. I’ve been doing this thing where I look up covers of songs I like on YouTube and then buy all of them on iTunes because they’re all amazing and make me sad that I can’t sing. (I also like supporting kids who are making a name for themselves on YouTube because I’m weirdly passionate about it. It’s the future, guys.) So basically I have eight renditions of “Just Give Me a Reason” that I listen to over and over again because I don’t know any better. This one is my favorite – the girl’s voice slays me.
Also, I can’t stop listening to Thrift Shop.
Should we go back to talking about Scandal? WE NEED TO DISCUSS HUCK’S LIFE.
