There Are Days...

Where I just want to go home and squeeze Jason like a bubble bear.

And today is one of those days.

Not too long ago, my brother-in-law to be sent some DVD's over to my house with my sister. Included in those was the first two seasons of How I Met Your Mother because I could eat that show up with a side of gravy fries. Also? He sent over the first season of Weeds.

And I was pissed. Pissed, because I fell in love with a show on a cable channel I don't have. I was sucked in and there was nothing I could do and I was jonesing.

Forlornly, I would cruise through my guide and I would see that Weeds was on. There it was, staring at me. I could click the button and all I would get is a black screen with a nasty little message telling me I was not subscribed but gleefully it informed me that I could call my satellite provider. Fucking jerks.

Randomly, Jason and I would have discussions about canceling HBO and getting Showtime. Or maybe there was a way we could figure out when was the best time of year to have one over the other and we could alternate them.

And then today - it came. The thing I had been waiting for. In my inbox was a message from my husband. They had an awesome deal on Showtime for 3 months and he just signed us up. It'll be on when I get home.

Frantically, at my husband's direction, I went to their website to see when I MY show, yes, mine, would be on. And when I get there I see that there is a Weeds marathon starting Monday at 9pm.

Just in time for me to DVR and watch, woozily,pain medicatedly, through one eye as I recover from Hootergate next week.

Sweet Jesus. Jugs and Weeds. It's the motherlode for me.

OMG I love love love that show.

I should have known you would too.

Mama Dawg said...

That is the best show!!! I have all three seasons on DVD. I haven't started season 3 yet, but soon...after I'm done with Arrested Development 3. I swear!

Never watched the show. Am thinking I may have to get on that bandwagon.

Hootergate. That cracks me up something fierce.

Hmmm, this show I might have to try.

So, I take it you are excited? LOL.

Sorry I haven't been around much this week, the first week of school has been so hectic. Ugh.

I've never seen Weeds but how awesome of Jason to do that for you. He definately earned a motorboat with the new jugs.

Just remember this: When you become addicted to The Tudors - Jonathan Rhys Meyers is MINE.

And hell yeah, Weeds is great! I want a bubble bear!

Oh, you are going to like this season! I will be interested in hearing your thoughts. You will have to blog about it. :P

And there is no way I could choose between HBO and Showtime. I mean, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Big Love, and Flight of the Conchords vs. The L Word, Weeds, Californication, The Secret Diaries of a Callgirl, and Dexter. There is just NO WAY to choose.

BTW, if you have not gotten into Dexter rent the first two season of that. And if you LOVE Weeds, you will flip for Californication.

By the way....having been waaaay out of the blogging loop most of the summer, I'm just now catching up on all the exciting hooter news here.

Again, this is the sort of thing that makes yours my favorite blog when I actually have time to read them.

I love Weeds! And I too have the unfortunate disadvantage of not being able to watch it in real life.

I can´t get any of that stuff over here (in Spain). I have to wait until it comes out on DVD or have my husband download it. We are currently addicted to Sopranos and have no other time for any other show. Weeds is cool though, but a bit too freakishly like where I grew up.

Boobs AND a Weeds marathon?! Sweet Jesus you are the luckiest girl alive. Seriously. And you know, I don't have Showtime, so if you need someone to sit with you and help you recover....watchweedsandpretendtohelpyou...just let me know.
