Friends Binge

friendsI wasn’t a Friends fan when it initially aired. I just never got into the show. But over two decades later I was being treated like a pariah because I couldn’t contribute to a conversation that started with, “Oh, remember that episode when…?”

“No, I never watched Friends back in the day,” I’d say. Gasps, all around me.

So when Netflix came out with all 10 seasons of the show, I decided I’d go back in time to 1994 when it all began.

And I’m so glad I did. But I don’t regret not watching it when everyone else did. I was 9 when it aired. I’m 30 now. Obviously I could relate much more to the characters today.

I’m so Monica. No, wait. I’m so Chandler. Hold on. I would so do what Phoebe just did.

And after cramming in 10 years worth of episodes into just a few months, I miss my Friends.

Star Wars Staycation

starwarsforceawakensI am not a Star Wars geek. But since my love for film has progressed, I have developed an appreciation for George Lucas’ work. I mean, how can I not?

This weekend I’ve decided to stay in. There is too much work to be done, and there aren’t enough hours during the week to do it. But why not amp up my productivity by doing what we women do best? Multitasking.

So, tonight, as I sit on the couch, laptop where it belongs (on my lap, if you didn’t get that), and glass of wine at my side, my Star Wars marathon will begin.

I should be a newly transformed geek by Monday.
