I started out my day today by somehow sitting on my pinky fingernail and bending it up in a way that makes my skin crawl even remembering it. It's one of those things where you just look at yourself and think, "how many times have I sat down in my life, why on earth would this time be any different, what is WRONG with me."
Other than that, I am wearing my VidCon shirt and boxer shorts and writing today off as a sick day. Last week I was still stuck on East Coast time and found myself waking up at 6-7 AM all week, so it's kind of nice to look at the clock and see that it's 11:45 in the morning and I only have gotten out of bed once to open my window.
It's now 10 o'clock at night and for having an uneventful day, I sure had a weird day.
First I forced my roommate Justin to watch three more episodes of Buffy with me (I am on episode 9 of Season 1) and then Eia and I went down to our favorite Indian food place for dinner. I was so excited to get out of the house after a sick day that I told her we needed to walk there instead of drive (it's only about 4 blocks). The weather was perfect; not too hot, but just right for walking around in a tank top.
At the Indian place, they were gracious enough to give us a complimentary appetizer… twice. I don't think they meant to give us free food twice, but Eia and I were definitely not going to send it back.
It was on our walk home that I definitely regretted our decision not to drive. We were walking up the road, enjoying the evening, and out of nowhere this shady guy appeared, standing behind a tree. He looked kind of suspicious but I wasn't paying much attention, and I wasn't sure why Eia seemed to be bee-lining it home. Right as we'd past, he asked me what time it was, so being a good citizen I turned around to tell him "eight o'clock". It was only then that I noticed he was standing there with his wiener out. Just holding it. Not doing anything else. Just standing by a tree, wiener out, wanting to know the time.
We hurried home. Probably never walked faster in my life.
Now I'm sitting in my living room, all excited about Shark Week, and thoroughly disappointed that none of the Shark programs on tonight seem very enthralling. Hence why I am now watching Silent Library. If you have never watched SIlent Library, you should definitely check it out. It's playing on MTV2 right now (the American version) but I would say the episodes you can find on YouTube of the actual Japanese version are way funnier. The premise is that six people draw cards and the one who gets the skull and crossbones has to do some horrible painful thing. But silently, as they're in a library.
I'm currently watching girls shave a man's hairy back and use the loose hair to make a beard for the girl who lost this round. Okay, and a few minutes later, on a new episode, a guy is brushing his teeth with a used toilet brush. Now a guy is wearing a Godzilla costume and being forced to walk barefoot across a town made of legos. NOTHING hurts worse than legos on bare feet. Call this trashy TV all you want, I think it's hilarious.
The moral of the story here is that I doubt I could ever be on a show like Silent Library. I felt this way about Fear Factor too, and about Wipeout. I just don't think I could handle eating fishbait muffins or being put in a wind machine full of dead bugs for 30 seconds for ANY amount of money. And Wipeout? How many of those people do you think have to be carried away to hospitals because of severe head injuries due to poor landings off giant red bouncy balls?
I'm not saying these shows are any less entertaining, I just know I couldn't do it. I will watch safely from my living room couch like most of America. My question for today for the comments is do you think you would survive one of these horrible endurance-based TV shows?
What! Now Jenna Fischer is doing an acne commercial. What the heck. I didn't even recognize her. Let's be serious right now; who HASN'T done a ProActiv commercial? The Avril Lavigne one just aired a few minutes ago as well. I can guarantee these stars do not use ProActiv. I had horrible skin in middle school/high school and I tried it, and it never worked for me.
Okay, instead of narrating my boring Monday night TV watching, I'm going to end this blog post here.
