Marathons & Me

Now don't get too excited. I'm not talking about a running marathon. Or even a walking marathon. In fact I'm not talking about a marathon that requires me to exert much energy at all.

I'm talking about a TV marathon.

Gawd I love those.

I'm the person that wastes away her entire Sunday re-watching (cause you know I watched them all before) The Real Housewives of 'insert city', Top Chef or Millionaire Matchmaker.

I'm the person in her pajamas all day curled in a blanket with a drink on the table and the remote in my hand.

I'm the person gets upset when they suddenly switch to Law and Order. I mean I love L&O. They have been part of my marathon days many, many times. But seriously don't tease a girl with a whole day of shows and then not play the most recent one.

That's just dirty.

I'm the person that buys the Seasons on DVD just so I can watch them all at once. One of my Christmas presents was Tudors Season 3.



That we watched in it's entirety. In a single weekend.

Then last week S surprised me with The Weeds Season 5 on DVD.



Any guesses as to what we did this weekend?

**I did manage to drag myself out of the house to go grocery shopping at Kroger. All my trips are listed on Craving Savings and I'm also giving away a box of GM cereal so drop by to enter!

'Member when I watched all 22 episodes of the 1st season of Gossip Girl, all in one weekend?

Yeah, that was the best. And I fell in love with Chuck and all has been swell with the world.

And I was sad about season 3 of The Tudors. Because Charles Brandon (Henry Cavill) wasn't naked a single time. HUGE FAIL!!!!

Sigh...

I am so with you. And we need to watch season 5 of Weeds still. I have them on tivo...but somehow we missed episode 2, so I had to wait for the dvds. So...when LOST is over...I am hoping to hear about your grand 6 season marathon of watching that!

Shannon said...

Um, yeah. TV marathons are my kind of marathon, too.

Christina said...

I'm currently on a Lost Marathon, and loving it.

However, I think I have gained five pounds from the popcorn and Mike's Hard Lemonade I have been enjoying while watching said show.

Now I'm gonna need to run a real marathon...

The Royal Family said...

I love them too! i actually Wish I could do it with Lost.. :)

I get on tv show marathons from time to time, but not that often. Usually it's because we don't have the channel. Like with True Blood and Rome. Loved those. I should be watching Lost to refresh myself for the big premier. Maybe this weekend.

Too Many Hats said...

I wish I could do that. Seriously, the house is just not quiet enough for long enough to enjoy a marathon. Glad you got one in though.

I love those Tudors!

Another good show is Big Love.

The Nice One said...

I totally need to catch up on the Tudors. I didn't watch any of last season.

Ahh, Weeds, love The Weeds. I've been known to lay in bed and watch entire days of Lifetime.
