Sunshine needed, STAT.

House and Thirteen are a little surprised that Donna from That 70s Show is on their show, but they're more confused as to why the hell she dyed her hair blonde. Try to solve that mystery, House. [Source from House on Facebook]

I'm a little behind on my House, but tonight was a rare chance that I could catch it on TV, so I jumped on the chance. I do realize that the show has slipped downhill ever since that debacle with Amber's death and House's interim at the mental asylum-- a good number of my friends have jumped the boat-- but I still hang onto the characters out of sheer loyalty. Hugh Laurie is consistently a bamf, and there are few things I love more than a good ol' bromance based off of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

TV's new Odd Couple, they'd probably be the most adorable duo were it not for that damn Jim and Pam. Just kidding, Jim and Pam are pretty fucking adorable. But do they constantly degrade and prank each other? That's true love.

But the reason why I bring one of my favorite TV shows up is that tonight's episode was especially pertinent because the patient was an avid blogger. Hmmmm, a 20-something woman who blogs about her life constantly; when have we ever seen that before? (Yuk it up, writers, you're all so hip and topical and I'm blogging about it, making me totally hip and topical) They portrayed her as this super-uber-hardcore blogger who almost pathologically had to record every aspect of her life to the world, much to the chagrin of her significant other. And guess why she became so sick? Blogging. Yes, she blogged herself to death.

Today's outfit was nothing much (I look all blah 'cause it was an "off day"), but I just wanted to share my delightful feet. The bunnies say hi. That bicycle is plotting to kill me.

Shirt- Wet Seal, hand-painted : Cardigan- TJMaxx : Black skinnies- Gap : Shoes- Old Navy : Socks- bunny trail?

OK, just kidding. Spoiler alert, she did not blog herself to death and it was nowhere near the cause for her sickness. Tonight's episode was an interesting take on the modern phenomenon, but I was more amused by the side story with Wilson's porno and Chase's vanity rather than the formulaic turn of her is-she-or-isn't-she-gonna-die. I try to keep a fine line between my "blogging life" vs my "real life," but you can always bet that I strive to be as truthful as possible here. Sure, there's a snippet or bucketful of sarcasm here and there, but it's all sincere I swear.

hmmm. sounds worth watching... but seriously, why DID donna (don't know her real name, don't really care) dye her hair that blonde color? pshh. that really is a mystery worth solving.

Congrats on the award! Those socks are really cute. :)

I dunno, I didn't think House went downhill after House's rehab or Amber's death. (Oh sweet jesus, did you cry as hard as I did when Amber died?! Both Wilson AND House crying? Too much!) I can see how people would think that though, but I still love it long time. Do you watch Castle? Another awesome mystery programme.
It's like murder she wrote, but with Nathan infinitely sexier than Angela Lansbury. you even get murder she wrote in america? If not, do ignore my ramblings. =]
And thank you for my award! ^_^

Dear me, that sounds tragic... Even though I don't watch House I love Hugh Laurie. If you find the time you've got to watch him in 'Jeeves and Wooster' - That will really crack you up!

Molly said...

Eri said...

I can't say I like House because I've never watched it!! But that IS weird that Donna is in it.. lol! And is it really possible to blog yourself to death? I'd like to see that happen. almost.

Your bunny socks are SO cute!!!! I love that you wore them with open-toe shoes!

Rosa said...

agreed on the need for sunshine!!
i love your socks with your shoes. i need some little ankle socks for spring...i can just feel that they will be just the thing.

I never got why Donna dyed her hair blonde -- she was such a pretty redhead.

On another note, I really like your socks paired with your shoes -- such a cute combination. Glad I found your blog.

Brandi said...

I haven't been on here to thank you yet! I'm so sorry -- such a hectic week, but thank you, thank you. You're so sweet. And I love House. So much. Though this week's episode was a good reminder that sometimes you need to unplug...

Hugh Laurie is an excellent actor. I've enjoyed his work since way back when he was in the BBC comedy series, "Blackadder."
