what would sophia do?

Wednesday, April 28, 2010



Obviously I share a lot about myself on this little blog. I talk about running accomplishments, my amazing cooking skills, some of the cool companies I've worked with and our newest major purchase.

I also share some my bf's quirks. Duh. How can I not? He makes me laugh and equally angry all at the same time throughout out our 3.5 year courtship.

What I'm about to say could come as a complete shock.

He religiously watches Golden Girls.

There. I've said it.

Yes, he religiously watches Golden Girls. Every night when it's on Lifetime Network at 11 p.m. I put on my sleep mask to go to bed and fall asleep listening to Rose saying something funny and Blanche saying something slutty for a 70-year-old.

I've seen more Golden Girls then I ever remember seeing before.

At one point, I think he told me he would watch it every day in college before certain classes too. My friends and I did this with tons of shows including Saved by the Bell and a Wedding and Baby Story on TLC. But the Golden Girls? Really?

Apparently his girlfriends from college all know this about the BF's interesting tendencies and I bet this doesn't surprise them one bit. (I don't think much of what I write about surprises them considering they lived with him for an entire year. That's right - my BF survived living with four girls for a whole year.)

What are the odd TV shows your boyfriend or girlfriend likes to watch?

Hahaha! That's awesome! I love the Golden Girls.

Sadly my boyfriend doesn't watch anything all that interesting, only basketball, tennis and nature/history channels. Like I said bo-ring.

he watches the "housewives" series! I realized he watches it when I'm not home. I've started watching it because of him.

Ha, this is hysterical! I've never caught my BF watching anything similar, but my co-worker's husband is obsessed with some of the trashiest and "chick" reality TV out there. Her stories of catching him crack me up.

Well, this just made my Hump Day! I love how Betty White can tell someone to #suckit and they would be all, like, ah, thanks, isn't she just so cute!

I LOVE the Golden Girls! I had the same ritual back when I had cable (it's been nearly three years).

My boyfriend watches "Grey's Anatomy." It's so annoying to watch, let alone distract me with its whiny background noise.

LOL - Yep, he DID watch Golden Girls between classes and we teased him about relentlessly. :)

Hahah, love it that he watches the Golden Girls. I wish my husband would watch some of my favorite girly shows with me.

HA! I'm obsessed with the GGs. If there's ever a marathon on when I'm home alone, I'm all about it.

B watches a LOT of trashy reality TV, but he alleges that it's solely for my benefit...

Vampire Diaries though? Not only did he FIND that gem, I think he likes it more than I do. ;-)

I love your boyfriend. We can watch it together when I come visit and relax under an afghan.
