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?

The Things:

  • Thank you to everyone who checked out my new blog and commented or liked it on Facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response to my dorkdom. Hearts!

  • We are leaving for Walt Disney World in 2 days! It's like the Mother Ship is calling me home!

  • Jonah picked out a hot pink Jeep Cherokee stroller to traverse the parks and is taking his plush Daisy Duck as his Plus One. Between tooling around in a hot pink ride with a duckette wearing lavender and pearls and being super excited about Cinderella's castle, I think my almost 4 year old boy is giving a big FU to traditional gender roles. Can I get a what-what? Of course, his mother will be standing alongside with precisely placed highlights, turquoise glitter polish (looks like town to me) and inches of tanned legs between short-shorts and platforms, looking like a fresh tube of lip gloss on Christmas morn, but we're both keeping it real.

  • I have been KNOCKED OUT by "Game of Thrones" and "Mad Men" this season, but woefully underwhelmed by HIMYM. I don't watch a lot of comedies (Community, 30 Rock, HIMYM & Big Bang) but when I'm finding Ted my favorite character, I think something's gone wonky.

  • My husband finished another semester of his doctoral program with a 4.0 for the semester -- his Admin in Higher Ed class was kicking his butt, super tough prof -- and now he only has 4 semesters to go and of course the dissertation. I'm incredibly proud of him as he balances his assoc dean / professor duties in a single income family and still has time to be an involved father and read everything I write and listen to what I overheard at the gym every day.

  • WHY did none of you tell me about "Revenge"??? I watched all aired 20 eps over 2 days. OMG the tawdry fabulous! I also caught up on "Girls" on HBO, and I have thoughts on it, but it needs its own post when I'm not packing and cleaning at the same time.

  • "The Avengers," in case you haven't heard, kicks massive ass. I don't know what Joss Whedon's thing is with schwarma ("I mean, what's that all about? It's a big meat hive!") but I like it. Oh, and if you've seen The Avengers, read this: Avengers Dissemble by [ profile] spuffyduds

  • Hi! Hi! I'm tripping protein bars and lots of Omega 3!

    No class today - it's library day! And if you think I'm actually going to the library, well, we've obviously just met. Allow me to paraphrase this week's Heroes: "The library? Haven't they heard of the Internet?"
