Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

Nightly insomniac TV report:

Vanilla Sky is on Bravo. I left it on for a couple of minutes to make sure it's really as bad as I remembered. It is. Tom Cruise's character just got arrested and measured at SIX FEET at the police station. Ha ha. If Tom Cruise is six feet, I'm Heidi Klum.

I'm totally addicted to Law & Order: SVU now. Did you know it's on like two or three times a night? EVERY night! Mariska Hargitay is badass. I knew I liked her for a reason.

I want to punch this one girl Gina on the America's Next Top Model marathon.

Other than that, I got nothing.

Vanilla Sky. What a waste of "talent" LOL! I was addicted to SVU for along time, but I think I have seen them all more than once. Every once in a while they have the maration on the weekends and I have actually watched almost a whole days worth!

I also like the Criminal Intent. There are two and I don't like the one with Mr. Big from Sex and the City, and I like the strange guy who has the weird mannerisms.

America's Top Model. I watched the whole day of that when I was waiting the delivery of a kidney stone. Heaven help me, I just couldn't stop watching it!

I went to Europe for the very first time ever the year Vanilla Sky came out. Posters for the movie were EVERYWHERE - Germany, France, Holland - it was like being haunted by Tom Cruise. UGH.

I like the CI show too but it gives me nightmares...you are a brave girl watching it late at night :)

I haven't seen Vanilla Sky .. I intended too and then when Tom went ultra whacky I decided that I would skip it - and well, any other Tom movie. He creeps me out.
I wish I had cable just so I could watch Law & Order: SVU - every once and a while it 'shows up' on our single channel and I love it.

Just popped over.

Have you seen the cockaroach episode? Gina freaks out!

Mariska is a badass... and I have a secret crush on Christopher Meloni.
SVU rocks. Does anyone still use the word "rocks" by the way? Or is that too 2005?

you are one step closer to living my life, wait till you get hooked on csi, all flavors, that's on 7 or 8 times a day

yum..Christopher Meloni...now, he doesn't have a completly bald head, but his will do. He is hot! and I love Mariska! And her baby is so cute! Way cuter than Suri, who, I'm afraid to say, is just "strange" looking.

Vanilla Sky....hated it.

But I do love SVU..I wanna be a cop just so I can shove someone up against the wall and beat the shit outa them! YA! And how about Ice Tee?! Who knew he could act? But, man, his wife CoCo, now that's.....I don't know WHAT that is! But she is something else. Can you tell I just read US?

Ohh insomnia sucks! Thank goodness for tv and internet huh?

It's wonderful you're making such good use of your time, dear.

What else am I supposed to do at 3 in the morning?!

Definitely not the best show to watch late at night, though, Trish .. you're right! And Scribe, I say rocks (well, I write it, anyway) so we'll keep it alive together!

E.B., that was the episode I was watching ... I was like, oh, my gosh, she is FLIPPING OUT!

I'm not sure I've ever heard of Vanilla Sky, but if they measured Tom Cruise at six feet, then there's something seriously wrong with that movie.

Get some sleep, Swishy Girl!

Hmmm, I haven't been watching much since everything was a repeat. Now that new shows are coming back on, I'm in trouble. I really, really need to write.

Ok, I've been a faithful SVU watcher for at least 5 years... cockroach episode?

I love that show. I love the actors (well, i preferred stephanie march over diane neal, but anyhoodle) I think the chemistry on the show is awesome and I just love how they turn stuff from the headlines into great shows.

I could watch that show over and over and over again. Christopher Meloni is YUM. I love him in the episode where he poses as a stockbroker. OMG him in glasses. Yum!

Anyway, I'm glad you've found a new show to love. Apparently you and I are tv kindred spirits. We have the same taste in shows! LOL
