Remember this post? I think I took #4 too seriously [get away from the computer] and I ended up not posting for almost a month! As Al Green would say “I know, I know, I know” [for about 26 times more], I have not been a good blogger. To my defense I was very busy at work and school and I just wanted to “veg out” whenever I could, and that meant hours and hours in front of the TV. So a recap of the coming and goings of this month:
-this is my 100th post ya’ll!
-We had our first wedding anniversary 🙂 . The mr. and I celebrated it for 2 weekends, the first weekend we went out for drinks on Saturday [like you do when you’re dating] and on Sunday to a fancy dinner. The next weekend went to a remote cabin right next to El Yunque [that’s Puerto Rico’s Natural Reserve and largest rainforest] and stayed for 3 days in complete bliss. The room had no TV, the whole place was solar powered and the rooms had no outlets so you had to go downstairs and charge your phones. The guests all mingled and played board games while the owner cooked breakfast or dinner and we waited for our phones to charge. After the sun went down the moon was looking spectacular and huge, you could really see the stars and hear the peaceful sounds that come with the night. We had a great time.
On Sunday we had to pick up Maggie from my mother-in-law’s house [she was baby-sitting] and we took this little lady to the beach!
-I’m obsessed with “New Girl”! I recently got HULU and got hooked on so many series, but my favorite right now is “New Girl” [and korean soap operas but that’s a whole ‘nother story]. I just love the comedic timing of all the actors, the situations they get into and the romance that’s started between Nick and Jess. I’ve read people say it’s the “Friends” of this generation and I think maybe. My all time favorite sitcom is “Friends” and what I loved most about the show was its ability to take any situation and put it in an episode. I can’t say how many times I’ve been somewhere when I say “this happened in an episode of Friends…” In that sense I think “New girl” and “Friends” are somewhat similar, but they are different shows from different times and to compare one to the other is not really fair. They are good scripted sitcoms that bring joy to whoever watches and I think that’s what’s most important in the end, to escape, laugh and have a good time with these lovable characters. What shows are you watching right now? What’s got you hooked? I’d love to hear some suggestions.
