So, I mentioned a while ago that I was watching The Office. You knew that. But it’s paused now (I still don’t understand the TV sitcom filming schedule, nor what the term “seasons” actually translates to in real life. Why are they all different lengths? Why don’t they start and end at sensible times?), so I have been watching other things.
Like Hoarders, on A&E. I mentioned that one before, too, about people who lose their minds and have a mental condition where they keep all kinds of stuff. It usually means a house piled to the ceiling with unworn clothing, unwashed dishes, un-fixed animals (which, according to the hoarder, inexplicably keep having babies? go figure), and garbage. This show grosses Joseph out. Like, he’d rather hear about people not washing their hands after using the bathroom. (I jest.)
But I like watching it, and unlike the shows that Joseph enjoys, there are no extraterrestrial and otherwordly, bizarre, imagination-based drug trips that can give a girl bad dreams at night. For example, what does Joseph watch? Star Trek: Enterprise.
Pretty good show, I enjoy watching it with him. It has this guy, Dominic Keating, who is sufficiently British and cute to make it worthwhile:
But it also has a goodly quantity of stuffed-shirt, totally square, annoying, self-satisfied, gratuitously curvy Vulcans. Like her:
So frustrating. So annoying. So…Vulcan. Oh well. But, it isn’t that I get bad dreams from the Vulcans. It’s the rock people. And the irradiated humaniods. And stuff like that. Unlikely things that originated in someone else’s imagination and are therefore easily able to find a home in mine. Ugh.
I prefer my own TV. Not scary. Who’s going to get nightmares about another person’s inability to throw away the garbage?
