I was commenting to my TV addict husband that I don't think of myself as someone who watches A LOT of TV, because I read more than I watch and I always seem to have time to dick around on Pinterest or talk on the phone for hours and therefore am obviously not a huge TV nerd. Lies, damn lies. So I work 40 hours a week at a college, take care of a 5 year old boy who is reading (Eeee!!) and cook from scratch and listen and offer support to my friends as they plan weddings and college majors and possible children and huge life decisions, all the while maintaing a head of thick(ish) curly hair, giving my husband something he can feel and reading a shit-ton of "Teen Wolf" AUs. And yet I watch:

1) How I Met Your Mother
2) Modern Family
3) Raising Hope
4) Nashville
5) The Big Bang Theory
6) Supernatural
7) American Horror Story
8) Agents of Shield (!!!)
9) New Girl
10) Teen Wolf
11) Breaking Bad
12) Mad Men
13) Game of Thrones
14) The Walking Dead
15) Downton Abbey

Granted, most of those shows are staggered by hiatus, so I don't I don't feel like I'm watching *that* much in any given season. There are also shows I watch when Caza's watching them (True Blood, Wilfred, Warehouse 13, etc) that I don't *count* as watching, because I don't ask him to pause the DVR if I have to pee, and I'm usually either looking at pics on Tumblr or reading a magazine while he's watching it.

The Game, however, is this: CAN YOU BEAT IT? While I feel I have a light-nerd-typical amount of TV watching, I think Caza may be the Big Kahuna, especially given his RL to TV time ratio. CAN YOU OUT NERD CAZA???

It Is So On )

So...can you beat him?

Oh, Brits in Teen Wolf fandom, you're killing me with your "proper" and "whilst" and "meant" and "shall." I know you watch scads of American TV, surely you've noticed that we don't talk like that? You rarely boggled me this much with SPN fic (other than that one time that Jared and Jensen ate chicken fried steak and enchiladas together, but non-Texan-Americans are often clueless about the Lone Star state, so I gave you a pass). Let me put it this way, by the time you write Stiles or Derek saying, "I'm meant to be back at uni in a fortnight, so shall I give you a proper kiss whilst we ring for a curry?" we're no longer in California.

Although I did laugh for 15 minutes in the midst of a HS AU while Stiles appreciated the fact that his high school cafeteria did a decent curry. Wow, that Michelle Obama really DID spruce up the fish sticks and Jell-O! Well, it was a welcome break from curly fries and coffee shops, I'll say that for it.
