Girls Just Want to Put Their Foot in Their Mouths

Is anyone watching the show Girls on HBO? No? You should. Like right now. Stop reading this blog, go on demand it and you will be caught up in no time.  Seriously. They are only half hour episodes (in HBO land, that is roughly 22-27 minutes).  Once you are done, report back here immediately and go on to the next paragraph.

Okay. Caught up? So Girls is an awesome show mostly because it is awkward. At first B made fun of me for watching it. Then he declared the main character "awful." Now he deserts me in mid conversation to "go watch an episode of Girls." Yes, I can hear him laughing all the way upstairs.

You still haven't watched it, have you? Shame.

Watch this clip:

and this one:

Well, I had my own Girls moment the other day at work.  I will let you be the judge:

Girls episode:*

Guy: Open your eyes...surprise! 
Girl: Gasp
Guy: Do you like it? (pointing to lack of hair on his head)
Girl: No, I don't f'g like it! It looks like $hit!
Guy: I did it for Cathy.
Girl: Who the f$ck is Cathy?
Guy: The woman at work who has cancer.
Girl: Oh, great! Now I look like the a$$hole.

Dani's life:

Dani: G, what happened to your hair?
G:  I shaved it on Friday.
Dani: Oh, good. I thought you were going to tell me you had cancer cause you look like you have cancer.
G:  Actually, my friends and I all shaved our heads for our friend who has cancer.

Guess who looks like the a$$hole now?


*Sadly no clip for this awesome scene can be found.

**B also says the main character, Hannah, reminds me of him.  To which I responded: 
Me: Gasp!
Me: Wha...?
Me: How?
Me: Wha...?
and he responded:
B: See above story.

I saw an ep of this when I was traveling for work and actually had access to HBO. It did look hilarious. But alas, we do not have HBO :( And I doubt it'll ever make it to Netflix Instant Queue either.

The characters are so...I don't even know what word to use to describe them. But this humor is definitely up my alley.

If this blog had a voice it would sound like a bag of dying babies.

I don't have HBO so I have to watch Mad Men on AMC instead. Don's 2nd wife is getting really sick of being a housewife, Roger is sleeping with Don's wife's mother and standing in front of windows naked, and the British guy committed suicide. It's all fun and games.

@Patricia - I don't know how describe these girls either. Not sure you can. Maybe it will make it to Netflix Instant. You never know.

@Anonymous - good thing I like you. Also, clever use of quote from the show.

@Memphis Steve - I am behind on Mad Men so thanks for the spoilers. On the other hand, now I want to catch up. So thanks for that!

Oh, very sorry! That hadnt even occurred to me.

@MemphisSteve - of course you didn't. That is because I am WAY far behind. No worries here at all :)
