Last night i was talking to a friend about bad CBS shows before my internet took a massive shit in the middle of the conversation. I didn’t get to finish what i was saying, and when the internet came back, my friend had gone. So to finish off my thoughts, i am writing here.
I have watched Big Bang Theory once and i could not find the appeal of it. Unless you’re a nerd and you find Kaley Cuoco hot, there is no reason to actually watch this show. Unfortunately, not everyone has good taste (i will admit that i enjoy Cougartown), but i just did not get this show.
The ex-boyfriend enjoyed watching this (if you are reading this: yes, i am criticizing your taste in things (i normally criticize everything about you, but today it happens to be television in particular)), and i usually got to watch what i wanted to (although there was a reasonable enough overlap of shows we both liked/tolerated), but one night he won out. We were on the couch and i nearly fell asleep while this was on. He kept prodding me and asking if i thought it was funny and if i got the jokes. I got them, but i didn’t get why they were funny.
All their jokes just fell flat, and i really have no other explanation than that they weren’t funny. They just sort of fell out of the actors’ mouths. The characters were two-dimensional and predictable. There is nothing redeeming about this show.
For the coup de grace, i present the following video clip of the show—a segment that was originally broadcast with a laugh track. See if you laugh at all.
Do you know how sad it is to be sitting in a sausage and beer joint on a sunday afternoon with your friends who are all drinking beer and then to have a glass of wine for yourself when you have given up beer for Lent?
Two homeless people commandeered a U.S. Park Police golf-cart-type maintenance vehicle in San Francisco late last week and drove it through the city on an auto burglary spree before one of them assaulted a city worker, according to police.
"They apparently drove around all night," Struckman said. "They showed up at 6:15 a.m. in the Panhandle."
[This is a personal post so skip it if you don’t care, but i need to vent about my disgusting gloommate.]
I cleaned the bathtub on monday and last night while showering, i nearly slipped and hit my head and DIED because the bottom of the tub was already slimy and gritty and gross. THREE DAYS, people. This is not my doing. How do i know this for sure? Because last time i cleaned the tub was two months ago and i left for the weekend and when i came back it was slimy and gritty and gross and i don’t understand how one person can make a tub disgusting within THREE DAYS of it being cleaned.
This is why i give up on cleaning the bathroom most of the time—because the only other person using it does not know how to be clean. [I’m about to get gross and talk about poop, so if you don’t want to hear about that you should skip to the next paragraph.] The next day i resolved to scrubbing the toilet because it needs a good cleaning, but upon waking the next morning, there was a poo in the toilet. No, i don’t mean that he forgot to flush, because i’m sure he did. It just seems like his poo was SO FUCKING EPIC that it managed to leave behind a mini poo SITTING ON THE BOWL ABOVE THE WATER. BRAVO. How do i know that it wasn’t me? Because i pee in the toilet before i shower at night, and i didn’t use the toilet again until i saw the poo in the morning.
Okay, and i know that people with long hair shed a lot, but his hair is EVERYWHERE. His LONG HAIR is all over the damn floor, counter, tub, on the toilet, and in the toilet. It clogs everything in the bathroom, including my will to live, and it ends up getting dragged all over the damn house. I don’t even want to think about how many times i have pulled hair out from the bottom of my foot because it got stuck there while i was in the bathroom.
And let’s talk about the trash for a moment. I don’t use the trashcan in the bathroom. That’s a lie. I occasionally use it to toss in some cotton swabs and sometimes some toilet paper. My contribution to the trash is less than 2%. What i want to know is how can the trash get full in seven days. I’m not even kidding. There is just a mound of toilet paper that forms, which i suppose explains how he goes through toilet paper so fast (a roll per 4 days!). So i don’t take out the trash because you know what? I DON’T FILL THE TRASH CAN REPEATEDLY WITH MY DESIRE TO WASTE LITTLE SQUARES OF SOFT TISSUE FOR GOD KNOWS WHAT REASON. So the trash will sit there, full, not taken out for weeks, months at a time. When it gets full, instead of taking it out, he PUSHES DOWN ON THE USED TOILET PAPER (actually, a lot of the time they don’t look used, as if he’s got a fear of germs and just throws away the 20 sheets closest to the outside and uses the next bunch, but this assessment doesn’t make sense since the bathroom is FUCKING FILTHY), and when it gets full again, he PUSHES DOWN ON IT AGAIN. What happens when he can’t push down anymore? It turns into a mountain. It turns into a mountain of trash that overflows its container and the lining bag is not large enough to hold all of his trash. He recently, after two months, took out the trash and bought mini-garbage bags for the bathroom trash can instead of using the typical plastic grocery bags we normally use to line trash cans, BECAUSE HAVING A LARGER BAG WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF OVERFLOWING TRASH AND THE FACT THAT HE DOESN’T TAKE IT OUT WHEN HE FILLS THE DAMN CAN.
I don’t want to murder him. That last sentence is a lie.
