AD addiction

Recently the ear doctor and I have fell in love with a little show called Arrested development. I love this show. I think it is pure gold. I wish more shows were quirky like this with equally endearing characters. Can't be beat.

I even got excited to see the movie "Stranger than Fiction" had Buster in it as a side character. (BTW, I LOVED that movie. Go see it and tell me what you think).

Anyway, last night as we were through about half of season 2 on DVD I turned to the ear doctor and said,

"Do you think if we dressed up as Lindsay and Tobias for Halloween next year anyone would get it?"

He paused for a minute and sadly shook his head no.

I agreed and realized that if people didn't get Holly Golightly and Paul Varjack, they certainly wouldn't get my obscure reference to a TV show that isn't even on the air anymore.

And that made me sad.

I think you could do Tobias pretty convincingly...the never-nude shorts, blue body paint, etc. But Lindsay would be hard. I would go as the Bluth banana instead.

I am glad that more people are feeling my daily agony. Hopefully, if enough of us unite we may be able to get them to stage a comeback. I think we should start an official petition.

I would have gotten it.

Katie, as your friend, I need to warn you to stay away from Arrested Development. AD can become a serious addiction, leading to time away from work and family.

I know because it happened to me.

Thankfully, I made it through season 2 without ruining my marriage (well, mainly because Sarah got addicted too!).

But now season 3 is out there, lurking in the shadows, waiting for me to take a peek. Just the sound of that theme song makes my hair stand on end.

Be strong.
