It's like a cow's opinion. It just doesn't matter. It's moo.

We haven't talked about TV in a while, have we? Does that scare you? I mean, I used to have a lot of thoughts and opinions about TV but now? Not so much. To be honest with you, Internets, I haven't really been watching that much TV. The strike, it hath cured me of my addiction! All hail the strike!

I'm kidding. But I haven't been watching as much TV as I used to. And I'm not as invested in the shows I do watch. Used to be, when a show like, say, LOST was on? I had to have complete silence and no one was allowed to talk to me during the entire hour and during the commercials, I'd sit on the sofa clutching my heart because OH MY GOD WHAT IF SAWYER DIES? Also, I didn't want to miss any of the parts where Jack and Kate are making kissy faces. Unless Jack was acting like a big, stupid doody-head, which is a lot of the time, like when he tries to take his own appendix out (wtf, Jack?), and also why does Hurley have to be so sad all the time? Dude. I love Hurley. Um. Yeah. Anyway, now I'll get up and actually do stuff during commercials. Although, I still feel a little ragey when someone talks to me while the show is on. I can't help it. I'm not very smart, so I need to really pay attention to everything or else I'll have absolutely no idea what's going on.

But then came Top Chef and now I find myself emotionally invested in a reality show but I DON'T CARE, because I freaking LOVE this show. I love watching people cook, so Top Chef is sort of like food porn. I got way, way angry last week when Dale got kicked off (um, spoiler alert) but last night's episode was sweet, sweet revenge, because the douchiest douche to have ever douched finally, FINALLY, packed his stupid douchey knives and went home. Douche. We hates him, precious*. All that needs to happen now is for Greasy Lisa to lose and then I don't care who wins. But I hope it's Stephanie. And not just because she looks JUST LIKE this girl I went to college with, who we called "Pledge," because . . . I don't remember, but whatever, MY POINT IS, Spike is gone and it was awesome. Truth.

*new low, Jennie

Kat, you should BE on Top Chef. I mean, you already have Samurai knives.

Could you believe that he dissed that famous chef for the quality of scallops in his walk-in? It was at that point that I texted a friend, and I quote, "Spike=douchenozzle." I was elated when he was booted, even though I'm not a big Lisa fan, either.

(Also, doesn't it look like Lisa has a new, less greasy 'do in Puerto Rico? I'm excited to see it. Also, I'm a huge dork.)

Jennie! said...

I know! I love how Tom was all, "oh, HELL no." I love Tom.

Who do you want to win? I really hope it's Stephanie, but I'd be happy with anyone but Lisa. Even non-greasy Lisa.

mysterygirl! said...

Minus Lisa, I like them all. I rank Stephanie first, just because she seems awesome and competent and I want a woman to win. But I also have a soft spot for Richard, especially after he said, "I've failed at a lot of things in life, so I don't want to fail at this." Me, too, Richard. Me, too.

Jennie! said...

You know what he hasn't failed at? Making his hair pointy every, single day.

We hates him, Precious is one of my favorite things you have ever said.

Ashley said...

Saying precious is not low, it's awesome. Also, I am SO EXCITED for Lost tonight. Oh, wait, I HAVE TO WORK AND CAN'T WATCH IT. I heard it's even more WTFey than last year. And also again, if Sawyer dies I will jump off a cliff.

New HIGH, Jennie. New HIGH.

Lost was The Awesome last night.

Andrea said...

I am SO glad that Sawyer didn't die! I am also glad that he returned to the island without his shirt.

matt said...

I was only ambivalent about Spike getting the boot, as I dislike Lisa just as much. At least there's the consolation she'll get her ass handed to her in the finals.

Jennie! said...

h!a!, hee.

Ashley, jumping off cliffs never solves anything. Jumping out of helicopters, on the other hand . . .

Fraulein, Lost WAS The Awesome.

Andrea, I love that Sawyer reappears shirtless. Hilarity.

Matt, I can't stand Lisa, either. I hate how she stands there with her arms crossed and her lips pursed, wearing her stupid, greasy bandana, and thinking she's a better cook than everyone, even Anthony Bourdain. Whatever, Lisa.
