How to Effectively Judge People

In A few of my favorite things, Coffee, Just not a fan, Living inside my TV on December 5, 2010 at 3:17 am

Alright, another coffee/TV post? Does she ever shut up about that?

Okay, just hear me out. This time it actually involves interacting with others and having a life, I promise. Unless you count watching 30 Rock on Netflix by myself. What? I know you’ve done it.

Lately, I have observed that I form my opinions about people largely based on their affinity for coffee and 30 Rock. But the judging isn’t intentional, nor is it absolute. I just realize that people who can both handle a coffee and quote Tina get on my good side rather quickly.

There are some exceptions, though.

If you have the guts to admit that you’d take a nice Caramel Apple Cider (Keenan Noyes) over a cappuccino, I respect that. I only have a problem when someone claims they’re a “coffee person” and then shows me he or she clearly has no business being in a Starbucks.

Daily Dose of TV: You’re the Devil!

In A few of my favorite things, Living inside my TV on September 27, 2010 at 11:51 pm

This is the quickest post I will ever make–I would rarely post something without a week’s worth of mulling over and editing, but I have a few motivations for such rash writing;

  • I just had a bit of coffee and I’m highly focused on being distracted.
  • I’d really rather be blogging than obey my real agenda. To give you an idea of how desperate this situation is–right now I’m sitting at my desk in a full sweatshirt/sweatpants ensemble, plus red high heels, because they make my life just a little more exciting. Go ahead, judge.
  • House is on at 8, but I told myself that would be my break from homework, but now this is, and I’m sort of convinced I can still do both.
  • I still have yet to see the SNL season 36 premier with Amy Poehler, (in case you were wondering, that’s 1 point for Hannah’s Host Prediction List), which means I haven’t yet developed any opinions for the new Featured Players (which I will probably hate at first, because everyone does) and the disappearance of Will Forte (for which I am furious), and I have about 800 other things to say about every other NBC Thursday show that has recently premiered. So, I need a dose of TV. And you probably do, too.

Alright, but that’s enough, now. Here’s a clip of one of my favorite SNL sketches of all time: Mike Myers’s Phillip the Hyper Hypo. It is now a link because a little convenient video clip was not cooperating. But trust me, it’s worth waiting ten seconds to load and the Sprint commercial.


P.S. A tip about Hulu; if it says “Sorry, we can’t play this video for you because no one paid us,” they’re lying. Wait maybe 30 seconds and it’ll start.

Okay, now I’m really done.
