Champagne and Pizza Kind of Monday

Lady Violet, the Dowager Countess of Badass Passive Aggressiveness. 

You guys, can we just talk about TV for a second?

I don’t usually talk about TV in an Around-The-Water-Cooler-Kind-of-Way, but it’s January and if I feel like wallowing in the jowls of sloth  (read: my awesome couch) you’d better believe I am going to enjoy every last minute of it.

Are you watching Downton Abbey? The second season just started here in the US, and like the first season, it’s amazeballs.

Like I said, I don’t usually discuss TV around the water cooler, but this show has me wishing I worked somewhere with a water cooler JUST SO I COULD TALK ABOUT THIS SHOW. Lola can’t hold her end of the conversation when I’m all, Did you see what Bates’ ex wife did? Girl, please. Who does she think she is? Imma show her where to wear that feathered stupid stump hat. Stump hat. Stump hat cow. Yeah, I’ll show her to mess with Mr. Bates and his bum leg. Yeah I will!

Cause I get really into these things.

It doesn’t matter that Bates’ wife would now be, like, oh, 120 years old, or that she is a fictional character, I’m 100% ready to duke it out ALL OVER HER FACE.

Keep in mind folks, we are talking about Masterpiece Theater here; a program based on delivering classic literature to the masses, like The Forsyth Saga, and Middlemarch, and Jane Eyre.

Oooooooooooh…speaking of crazy bitches in the attic, are you watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo tonight? I can’t wait! I know it, or any reality show for that matter, feels a little bit trashy, but I can’t get enough of it. Watching their lives makes me feel so normal and good about myself. The season reunion is today. Woot! Countdown!  Looks like it’s going to be a champagne and pizza kind of Monday. 

I made it black and white so it’s all classy and stuff.

    Haha! Good question –it’s an original by Bruce White: I do not believe he did any more, but you should see what he has in stock. I think he has a big show coming up this summer so it may be limited. I also noticed a few weeks after I posted it ( several Etsy shops with Inigo products cropped up. You might be able to commission one, too. I highly recommend –everyone loves Inigo!
