Blue Nails and Community (crap TV show)

Nail polish is doing an awesome job of keeping me from eating my cuticles into bloody stubs. I haven’t gnawed on my fingers since Halloween, which, as a long time nervous nibbler is HUGE. That is weeks people, WEEKS.

I’m not so much feeling the blue polish I have on now though, which is another sign that I’m entering a different period in my life because this specific blue polish was my absolute, utter, to-die-for favorite in high school. The bottle is over 11 years old and I made a paper funnel and poured nail polish remover into it, shaking each small amount for about 5 minutes, to loosen the polish up and make it viable again. The color is still as awesome as I remembered it and even revived it had done a killer job of sticking but still…this color isn’t working for my anymore. I did this while watching Community, the new NBC sitcom,on my laptop, which is such a major let down of a show that I’m super bummed they even made it. With a cast like they have, and a concept that is ripe for the mining, I can’t understand how the show can be so totally boring, hackneyed, and predictable. It is bad, so bad, and I’m really bummed that I spent money on Amazon Watch Now ($6.00!) to see the first few episodes, but at least I had my nail polish revival project to keep me mildly entertained.

Oh 30 Rock and The Office, please don’t ever leave me. Nothing can compare to you. (Is anyone else loving the new office love drama between Andy and the new receptionist as much as me? I hated Andy before but now he has grown on me and I’m such a sucker for a good office love story after Jim and Pam. Love Jim and Pam too. They are my imaginary friends.)

I’m spending Thanksgiving (American Gluttony Holiday for those readers that aren’t in the US) at the significant other’s parents’ house. What color should I make my nails for said occasion? I don’t want to go all holiday matchy matchy and do orange/brown but I’m also not leaving it this blue.

OH HOW I LOVE COMMUNITY. I'm so sorry that you don't like it. Did you see the one where the Dean and others came up with the mascot? Or when Britta's surfer boyfriend and Chevy Chase were in a band? Or Abed and just about anything? i love the show. I'm actually sick of the Office and just hope 30 rock doesn't go down the shitter, too!

I have two words for you: Green Wing. It's a British sitcom I discovered last week. Unfortunately, there are only 19 episodes, but they are all BRILLIANT. It's about a hospital, and absolutely NOTHING is sacred. Nothing. I am frequently torn between hilarity and horror because I'm not sure I should find the things they do so very, very funny. It's on Hulu.

As far as the nail polish goes, I have this really awesome navy blue that's almost a deep purple. I love it. But if you're off blue for right now, you can never go wrong with hooker red.

Sallyacious: I shall also give this show a go, I love me the British comedies.

My nails were lavender for Thanksgiving :)
