On The Couch

That’s where I am and where I shall stay. All day.

Last night was rough.

On multiple levels. But I was talking specifically about watching the Mizzou game.

It was ugly. Really ugly.

As in, I should probably continue to hide in shame for the rest of the day.

Not that I am looking for an excuse to stay in all day. I have one.

It’s called dehydration.

But at least I’ve got my ol’ backup plan.

Granola pancakes. BAM.

And coffee. Duh.

Because my ego’s still a bit bruised from the poorly played game last night, I am boycotting football all day and breaking out this new purchase:Best purchase ever. Thank you, Katie, for giving me the heads up on the deal on Amazon after I expressed my undying love for the old MTV show.

It was one of those shows I’d have on in the living room, but as soon as I heard one of my parents coming, I’d switch the station to something else. Pretty sure they knew I was pulling the ol’ switheroo, but whatev- it made me feel scandalous.

It’s also how I watched Dawson’s Creek and South Park.

And kinda like how I broke the parental code on the movie channels. Repetitively.

Soooooo scandalous.

Hi mom.

But anyway, I clearly have no attention span today, so I’m gonna retreat back to the couch now and immerse myself in everything that is 1997.

La la la la laaaaa….

  1. YES! I used to hide in the basement to watch Dawson’s Creek, remote in hand.

    I ran this morning and plan on spending Saturday afternoon just like I spent Friday night: watching Joey and Pacey fall in love. Aww.

  2. Sorry about mizzou : ( I thought of you when I saw the replays. I’m planning on watching games all day, but I def. turned the channel last week after the irish bit it so I completely understand.

    I find it so funny people weren’t allowed to watch dawsons creek! My parents were apparently more liberal than I thought.

  3. I used to hide to watch 90210! I was never told I couldn’t watch it, but I didn’t want to risk it.

  4. Hehe, I had to do that with music! I wasn’t allowed to listen to the Beastie Boys so I’d have to turn the radio off real quick. :)
    Enjoy the couch today. I just spent 2 hours there myself. It was fantastic.

  5. Soooo, any good stories from last night?

  6. I still instinctively want to change the channel when watching something at the parent’s that I think they might not like. Old habits die hard.

  7. I saw you tweet that you got this and decided I really I need to get this set myself. Like, now.

    Also, I was in college for Daria, South Park and Dawson’s…I feel old.

  8. I am so glad to know I wasn’t the only child subjected to parental codes and sneaky channel changing.

  9. I bought that about a month ago. I’m not even half way through. Definitely need to step up my game.

  10. I think we all pulled that smooth move! I’m sure my boys do the same…ugh, being a parent. Sorry about your team. That stinks! The pancakes should improve your day though! Damn those look good!

  11. I ordered it too! I think you’ve got me beat as far as superfan status, but I can catch up!

  12. I never saw Daria! We didn’t have cable but I read about it in magazines and always wanted to see it. Same with Dawson’s Creek (what that on cable too or was I just not home to watch it?).

  13. God, those pancakes look amazing!!

  14. […] last left you deep into the first season of Daria on […]

  15. Those granola pancakes look scrumptious!!! And Daria?! I haven’t thought about that show in ages….classic!!

  16. Hahaha yes! I did the channel switch for the Real World when I was in middle school! Love it :)

  17. Pancakes and Daria? Goodness…that can cure almost anything! I need to get my hands on that DVD ASAP. And the pancakes too!

  18. I won’t rub the Mizzou game in your face because I’m deathly afraid of our game this weekend. I’m already biting my nails.
    I need a day spent only on the couch ASAP. Hope it was amazing!
