Super Sunday

The drama has already started at my house 
regarding this Sunday's face-off.

No, not football.  
HBO's "Big Love" and Showtime's "The L Word".....

BOTH Season premieres...are on at the same time.

If you ask my husband, Big Love is the apex of cable-television viewing. 

Do not get him started about Big Love. Especially if you don't watch the show. Because he will try and sell you with detailed episode recaps til you just wish you had stayed home.

Big Love is the crown jewel of his Y chromosome pay-cable trifecta, rounded out with Entourage and Californication.

While I enjoy Big Love, I ***Puffy Heart*** The L Word. I love it, love it, love it.

The L Word girls are all gorgeous and glamorous and they have fabulous jobs but still have time to lounge around in cafes sipping lattes and they're so.........so.........so........
not washing anybody's socks.

By the way, the irony has not escaped me that his show is about ├╝ber-heterosexuality to the third power, and my show is completely void of men.

I do rethink polygamy now and then, though,  when I see the Big Love wives all getting nights off from cooking and cleaning.  I might be able to get behind that program.

If I did, here would be my requirements for my 'sister wives':

#1) You can't be skinnier than me.

#2) You have to love drinking & dancing.

#3) You should be reasonably obsessed with Twilight.

#4) Sunday nights: Showtime, The L Word.

Sign-ups start today. :)

I miss the L Word! Man, I would pay extra to see that show again!

Miss Yvonne said...

I meet requirements 1-3 and I can work on 4.

I have often thought getting a wife would make life so much more simple. I can manage to watch the show, let's get us some sister wives and get a few nights off to kick back and hang out!

I have to side with hubby on this one. I LOVE Big Love. But I am a fat drinker/dancer that can pop a mean bowl of popcorn. Am I qualified?

Paige said...

Things like this make me sad that we dont have those channels-

Swirl Girl said...

contrary to popular belief - I am not in a polygamist marriage even though I qualify based on your requirements.

and get a DVR for those dual episode things.

Tenakim said...

my husband is the same way- loves Big Love- is totally freaked out by my love of The L Word, though!!!

I'm not a Twilight girl, but maybe we can hang out at The Planet and have drinks and fight over Shane!

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

I am yours lady. Totally, but I don't do floors, sorry.

Natalie said...

we don't have showtime or hbo! i was happy to have tv shows in english, but i must admit that hgtv is getting a little old. and it's making me depressed at how undecorated/boring my house is. i need some new shows!

Jen said...

I'm pretty sure I meet all your qualifications except that I've never seen The L Word. Can I still be considered? I think my #3 totally makes up for my lack of #4.

Ali said...

I don't get that channel either but I can't wait for Lost next week!

Anna Lefler said...

I will totally be your sister wife! And then I'll tell you all about "Mad Men" - your soon-to-be-next-favorite-show! (We can drink and dance during the commercials...)

Will you teach me about Twilight, sister-wife?

I think I qualify to be a sister-wife...I ♥ Big Love

The Daily Blonde said...

I haven't seen either. I need to find something to do besides Twitter.

Hannah D. said...

BIG LOVE is the best show ever!!!!!!! I can not wait for Sunday!

Mrs. Newlywed said...

Big Love is AMAZING.

Bee and Rose said...

The Blonde Duck said...

Stopped in from SITS to say hi! I've heard the L-word is really fascinating...And Big Love looks like a good show. Too bad I don't have HBO!

MrsSki said...

I love both! I can't convince Hubby to like either! I keep pushing him to rent it one weekend and he fails me every time!

BTW, I'm a newbie to your blog and I LOVE it! You totally crack me up!

Heinous said...

Don't forget. They have to be willing to be blog fodder.

Michelle said...

TIVO them both!

Tara said...

I love the L word... too bad it is the final season :(

Rachael said...

Over from SITS!

Okay...you are absolutely hilarious! I have been sitting her laughing at all your posts....whew!! Thanks for that!

Um...I have never seen Big Love or the L Word...we are too cheap for the premium cable channels. But..I definitely meet your first and second criteria for the sister wife thing. I mean...I can REALLY drink and REALLY dance :-)

I'll be back for some more laughs!

Ann said...

I can deal with these requirements.
May I sign-up?

Wendy@RuensOnTheRun said...

I haven't seen L Word, I guess I need to check it out. Your husband and mine watch all the same shows...and he loves them, but only by DVR around the football game schedule.

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

My requirements--Must love laundry and must love cleaning liter boxes ;)
Takers?

MommyTime said...

MY sister-wives would have to be willing to pick up after themselves, their own children, my children, and our husband, because I'm tired of that. Also? They'd have to need less sleep than I do because I'm feeling seriously sleep-deprived right now. I don't think I'm making this sound very appealing am I? Your deal sounds better. :)

Set it up and have it go to the people (men) in your life you want to scare away!

proseandconverse said...

I was so obsessed with The L Word until the traumatic day I cancelled our premium cable subscription. Must now click on over to Netflix to get reaquainted with my (ok, our) girls. Maybe I'll check out Big Love while I'm at it.

I think it would be an easy sell getting your husband to watch The L Word, though... from what I remember, lots of boobs.

Lisa-licious said...

Yeah, watching "The L Word" would DEFINITELY make my hubby wonder...I guess since it's the last season I will have to check out the DVDs. I remember on the first season that cute blonde's cool haircut...short in back and long on the sides in front...so many chicks have that style now...(see profile photo--->>>)

Aubrey said...

My hubby and I are excited for Big Love. Love your sister wives requirements.

One word. Wait. 3 letters???

DVR

Tasha said...

I cant wait for Big Love. I'm putting out for sister wives, too!

Eli's Lids said...

Found your blog on mom dot and I'm LOVING it! Thanks for the giggles :)

If ordering from an online ed hardy Clothing store, she should either have tried ed hardy sale the garment on in a store somewhere ed hardy or she had better be buying ed hardy UK from a vendor with a great return ed hardy cheap policy. Buying from an ed hardy Clothes online vendor has its risks and ed hardy store they should be understood. The edhardy.com upside is that online stores christian audigier sale tend to have a large selection ed hardy dresses of clothing to choose from. The ed hardy Polos bad news is they can be more ed hardy sandals expensive, or the cost of shipping and handling ed hardy Jackets can offset any cost savings she might have enjoyed.
