Somehow though, in my twisted mind, watching endless hours of TV shows doesn’t count; the time spent doing so is mysteriously different than the same time spent watching a movie. Which is my special way of telling you that I’ve become OBSESSED with Freaks and Geeks. As has J.
We’re only about four episodes in, but we discuss it during the day, ponder the characters' motivations, and reminisce about good lines together. It’s a good thing we found each other, people.
While our behavior is admittedly embarrassing, the show really IS amazing, and I’m bummed it’s going to end so quickly. Also? I’ve developed a bit of a weird crush on James Franco. Not James Franco in real life, mind you, but the dirty, stupid stoner James Franco on the show (and, um, in Pineapple Express). I KNOW.
So, since-at the rate we’re going-we’ll be done with the series by the end of the week, what show that I never watched should I become obsessed with next? Gilmore Girls? Veronica Mars? WHAT? (Yes, I used to watch much less TV, and missed a lot of apparently great shows.)
And don’t tell me to do something useful with my time, like making more bread! I’m serious, I get way too cocky when I do Fancy Extraneous Baking! See? WHO MAKES FACES LIKES THIS AND FORCES PEOPLE TO TAKE PICTURES OF HER WITH BRAIDED DOUGH? WHO, I ASK YOU, WHO?
Sigh.In other news, my younger brother got engaged this past weekend!The wedding will be at the end of the summer, and we are so excited for him and his fiancee. I adore them together, I love weddings, and I love getting to indulge my inner Project Runway contestant. You see, rather than having members of their wedding party wear identical dresses, most Modern Orthodox Jewish brides select a color and fabric and have their girls design their own dresses. They're then sewn by a dressmaker. (Ali, back me up here!) I have no idea WHY this is, but for whatever reason, it's what a lot of brides do. While it's a lot of fun, I'm not incredibly talented in the drawing arena. And so, over the coming months, please expect a post or two soliciting your advice on detailed and well-executed dress sketches, such as this: Oy.
Leanne Marshall, I am not.

I have not one but TWO posts up at BeautyHacks this week. One, about Old Navy's new petite clothing line, and the other about THE BEST CONCEALER EVER, complete with before and after pictures of my (oh-so-tired) eyes.
