How About Some Whine With That Cheese?
Hey, I'm baaaaaack. Last post of the year. So, let's keep it in character and end this with a whine.
Since I get two stations, my talky box viewing has been selected for me. I could turn it off, but no, I'd rather watch and rail at the screen. "You morons! You think that's funny?"
So, Fox has had a marathon of some of their latest shows. One night was all, 'New Girl.' The next, 'Ben and Kate.' Blah, blah.
I hate them all, except for, 'Raising Hope.' Still grossly funny. I like Zooey as Jesse Day, the quirky klutz, best friend to all. And I like Jake Johnson, the quirky roomie, who hates everything.
Mindy Kaling, who has her own show, 'The Mindy Project,' was so terrific on 'The Office.' In this new crap, she is another quirky, klutzy, doctor. Ugh. It is so awful.
'Ben and Kate.' Too weird. Sorry, main character's teeth are all I see.
And along with crappy TV shows, are crappier commercials.
I'm sorry, but what do gospel singers, singing on top of buildings have to do with a car? The ad, (for Infiniti?) just creeps me out. As does the Subway commercial where two women, who talk like fifth graders steal some creepy guy's sandwich. Just sad.
Subway also has a commercial where you see someone carefully stirring a glass of eggs. Ha! Have you seen what they pass as eggs for their breakfast meals!?
Oh, and the Panera Bread commercial where the baker is slowly getting the bread ready for the ovens. LOL. I know someone who works at Panera. It ain't like that. They have a list of stuff they have to bake and they better get it done in time. Sheeeeeiiit. Plus, they are marked and noted in their records if they get anything wrong.
I like Panera Bread. I just don't like how commercials make it look like everyone is having a swell time. Have you ever seen any worker at McDonald's having a swell time?
Time is money, as one guy proved this morning whilst I waited for the pharmacy to open. (I love that the liquor aisle is right next door) But, anyhoo, I could hear some guy yelling on the phone to someone who was supposed to be helping him unpack boxes and boxes of booze. He was saying, "I give you a job and you can't even get up before nine to get here! I'm gonna blow!" Fortunately, he didn't blow, but the wine section was much cooler as the sleepy dude finally showed up and they worked in chilly silence.
Okay, I gotta whine about group therapy. Damn, one woman who had threatened to stab her former boss in the ass got arrested last week for stalking him. She's fucking nuts, yet she is still out on the streets. Specifically, on my street! I'm frickin' afraid of her. She was smiling as she narrated her tale of parking close to her former boss, just to show him she's still around. What a loon. One thing I have learned going to group therapy. It's more entertaining than some talky box shows.
