With all the excitement going on around here, I haven’t updated you on my Netflix viewing status. What’s going on, you ask? For starters, I finally scored the #1 ranking on the Dawson’s Creek Trivia Challenge. That’s right, friends and neighbors, out of 26,378 players, I am #1. Well, I was. For about a day. And then Chick with Scary Knowledge came back on and knocked me back to #2. But hey, I was there. So I printed out that Facebook page for my scrapbook and that was it. No bells or whistles. No big honkin prize. Just another goal I can check off my list.
I finished watching all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls and absolutely loved it. The writing is incredible and Lorelai and Rory are the best mother/daughter combo ever. I was kind of bummed when they dissed Mummenschanz and Garrison Keillor (each twice!) because those are both two of my fave things, but everything else rocked so I had to forgive them. And I cried at Rory’s graduations. And a whole bunch of other times. And that tent Luke made in the last ep? Dude. Now all I have to do is find most of Lorelai’s clothes for my wardrobe and life will be complete. I so did not want Gilmore Girls to be over. But nothing gold can stay.
So now I’ve moved on to the next show on my Netflix queue that I never saw. I’ve been hearing from everyone for years that I’d love it and I have to watch it. My students would come in and just be like, “Mrs. Maguire, this show is totally you.” I’m almost done with the first season and I have to say, I had no idea it was so freaking good. The best part? I have two words for you. Seth Cohen.
Does he not rule? What an amazing character. And Adam Brody is totally brill as Seth Cohen. Apparently, The O.C. was only on for four seasons, which makes me a bit nervous. Does it start to suck at some point? I can’t imagine how. I guess this is a good example of living in the moment: I’ll enjoy the good days of The O.C.while they last. And Chrismukkah.
