So, this week we're talking about L-O-V-E. Or as we call it in the South: LUV!
It can be a lot of fun to be in love. Or even to love a friend, a family member, a pet, or child. That's a great feeling! But love isn't always easy. Sometimes it can be really hard to live out love because we just don't feel like it. Or maybe the person is being a jerk. Or we're really tired. Or... yeah, sometimes it isn't gooey.
Sometimes it can even be dangerous. The cliches (can't sleep, can't eat) sound unhealthy, but it goes beyond that. What about when infatuation turns into obsession? Or abuse? We all know the stories of what can come from that. Have you ever written (or considered writing it) into your stories? It can be terrifying, a messed up picture of what "Wuv, twue wuv" really is.
I think we've reached the point in our friendship as writing buddies where I can make this confession. You'll still love me, right? It's just a little obsession. Yes, I've lost sleep over it. No, I've never lost my appetite. But sometimes it's all I think about. Even with all the things swirling in my head right now--Peru, living in a new place, writing, etc--it's there, demanding attention. Begging me to surrender. Sometimes I just feel so. . .
I love this show so much it's scary. You can ask my friends. I'm the girl known for remembering all the exact random connections from past seasons. I get a little too into the show whenever it's on. Most of my predictions are accurate, but I don't project too far out. I have no idea where the show is going, but last week's premiere made me really excited. I'm writing this before the second episode airs (AND PLEASE DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE 2/9/10 EPISODE BECAUSE I WILL NOT SEE IT UNTIL WEDNESDAY NIGHT), but I expect it will be awesome too. Tuesday nights are sacred for me.
So there's my big confession. I love a tv show a little too much. Anyone feel my pain? What's your guilty pleasure? It doesn't have to be television. I'd just like to know if someone else loves something a little too much like I do. :0)
See y'all Friday!
