Sometimes, for me, the line between what is happening in real life and what is happening on TV becomes blurred.

For instance, yesterday I spent the better part of the afternoon/evening watching The Sopranos Season Three. In one episode, Christopha and Paulie are lost in the woods of South Jersey after trying to kill this enourmous Russian man who won't die, and Christopha keeps looking for/asking for a lighter for his cigarette. So a few minutes later I put the show on pause and go into the kitchen to refill my water and I see my purple lighter on the kitchen table and I think "Oh DUR there it is!" and I was so relieved. And then when I return to the couch, it occured to me that it wasn't me who was looking for the lighter.

This is not an isolated incident.

In fact my earliest memory of this happening was when i was 12 years old I was convinced that that restaurant scene in Pretty Woman, where the escargot flies off her plate and the waiter catches it and says "Happens all the time" happened to me. I even told my cousin about it and he was like "That sounds really familiar". And then it dawned on me... Julia Roberts + I = Not The Same.

I don't know what it all means, but hopefully it does not mean i watch too much TV!

Love it...

That was a good episode. I once looked down at my hands when my nails were longer than usual - french manicure - and I was glad they weren't as long as Carmella's. I need to stop comparing to characters. I need to stop watching those DVD's.

There is no. such. thing. as watching too much tv. Now stop with all this crazy talk and we'll pretend you never even metioned it.
