Marriage is a Sacred Institution


[Watching the closing credits for Walk the Line]

The Hub: Oh, I didn't realize he died right after she did.

Me: Yes. Of heartache, clearly.

The Hub: [eyeroll.] I'm sure it had nothing to do with that disease he had.

Me: Are you going to die right after me, mister? Because that would be really romantic. And pretty much, if you don't, I guess you never really loved me after all.

The Hub: Can you get me a snack?

Me: You know what's on tonight?! Freaking American Idol is what's on tonight!

The Hub: I'm not watching that crap this year.

Me: Um. Come again?

The Hub: I don't enjoy watching these poor people getting mocked and ridiculed. It's anxiety-inducing.

Me: Or, funny?

The Hub: Let's watch this documentary on Yosemite instead.

Me: What? Yosemite? But...but...Lana and I were going to have a texting marathon and talk shit about all the contestants!

The Hub: Well, tell Lana to turn this on and we'll talk shit about Yosemite instead.

Chuck Norris Update: I believe Tristachio has taken the lead. Who said terrorism never got anybody anywhere? (What? Not funny?)

  1. The Yosemite thing was pretty cool. Dirty Jobs was also quite enjoyable.

    Is it bad that I've pretty had the same television-watching schedule as you and your husband for the past few nights?

  2. I actually watched some of the American Idol. We like it in the beginning stages when all those who think they are good...aren't.
    Although, I was embarrassed for a few of them. Many of them actually.
    OK...MOST of them.
    :-)

    Couch potato-ism at it't finest.

  3. Okay, in all seriousness, I know of two couples who died within hours of each other. We had two double funerals in less than 3 months. Weird, huh?

  4. I'm with you on this one. My hub is all "I hate American Idol!" in public. Then he's all "You watched it without me?!" in private. Dork.

  5. Being from Boston and actually having auditioned for American Idol....I boycotted Idol since my audition year since its actually nothing like you see on TV....BUT in my blips during commercials of Biggest Loser (and trying to find inspiration to drop eh maybe 15 lbs or so by watching the mobidly obese get pummeled by screaming trainers) I did see some people and I was mostly looking for people I knew.

    NO luck. Such is life.

    Although, My grandparents, on both sides, died a year apart from each other as well, guess they had a love like Johnny and June.

  9. I freaking LOVE Idol. This is the same conversation my husband and I have before EVERY reality TV show under the sun. Like the other day I was talking about watching the Bachelor on Hulu and he said, "but you mean...with me, right?" So eventually -- they give in.

  10. Does Yosemite have that annoying guy with the huge glasses? Does Yosemite have celebrity guest judges? Does Yosemite have possibly inbred bridge-jumping contestants?

    I think I've proven my point. Which is something something Paula something something Shania Twain something.

    I kind of forgot my point.

  11. Yosemite had it coming...

    I can't get into Idol. Which is strange because I love watching people get yelled at for their stupidity. Maybe once Simon is gone.

  12. Yeah, I truely believe that John just couldn't go on without June.

  13. I think it's so sad how they treat the contestants, but I also think that a lot of the rudeness and jeering must be edited in. I mean, there is no way that people can treat people like that, right? And they never show the judges talking and the contestant in the same frame. Right?
    Gah.
    It is anxiety producing
