boyfriend is obsessed with infomercials. not just any infomercials mind you- the music compilation ones. last night i was lying in bed and boyfriend was doing his normal routine of flipping channels so quickly it gives me a headache just trying to focus on what the show actually is before he changes the channel again. you know the type. but then he stopped. i let out a quick gasp of joy, for i can actually let my brain and eyes settle on the television without wanting to gouge them out. then i quickly cried out "NOOOOO" when i realized what he had stopped on. that freaking 70's compilation of crap with one of the brady's and some woman dressed in the most hideous of nonmatching, craptacular outfits (think green shirt and a brightly patterned orange skirt). i hate this infomercial. nevermind the fact that we've seen it about 7 times already. everytime boyfriend catches a glimpse of the flourescent, flower power, lava lamp loving background, he stops and watches it like it's the first time he's ever seen it. before you know it, he's singing along to every song. i want to kill him at this point, but i'm usually too tired to move.
this isn't the first time he's done this either. he was completely obsessed with the country compilation infomercial too- the one where kenny rogers is the host. i swear we watched that one at least 20 times. and i'm certain we'd still be watching it, if it was still airing. thank the goddess it's not though, because all his plastic surgery was starting to give me nightmares.
ps- am i the only person who notices how people's outfits, or the things they're wearing match whatever is in the background of the show/movie they're in? because i always notice that "her" top is the same color as the vase in the kitchen, or how the color of "his" tie matches the painting on the wall in the living room. and all my friends think i'm crazy that i even notice that kind of stuff, but it's just how i see things. like when i look at a scene in a movie, i notice everything in it. especially if the colors match. it's probably just another sign i'm headed to the looney bin. i bet they give me a nice pretty white shirt, to match the white walls though!
and pps- just to be clear (regarding comments and emails i've received about the post below) blake's dad is a very good dad. he is great with him, as involved as he can be, and him and i have a good relationship. i get bitter and stupid about things that shouldn't really matter, but that's just me sometimes. i don't want anyone thinking that his dad is a jerk, because that couldn't be further from the truth. he is a really good guy- i just like to bitch.
