So you know when you’re having a shitty week, and it’s barely Tuesday? You know what keeps me going on weeks like those? Knowing that tomorrow is Wednesday. Known to most as “hump day,” to myself and a small group of very special people, Wednesday nights are TV Nights (“TVN” for short)(disclaimer: the actual night may vary depending on everyone’s schedules).
It all started four years ago. We were all talking about Family Guy and decided we should all get together to watch it, and it just so happened to be on a week night. We had such a good time that we decided we should do it the next week, and the week after that….and here we are, four years later, still getting together in the middle of the week for a few good laughs.
So let’s see, we started with Family Guy, and then graduated to Arrested Development (during which TVN was actually ADN). Best. Show. Ever. It may be only three seasons…but that’s why everyone should watch each season at least three times. At least. We’ve dabbled in a few other shows, most notably Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 30 Rock…and currently, Modern Family. Since the show’s been on hiatus, we haven’t really decided on what to watch for the Summer, so the last few weeks we’ve just been hanging out, which has been A-MA-ZING. TV nights become much more social when you’re not trying to pay attention to the telly!
Anyhow, the purpose of this post is to encourage you all to have TVN’s of your own. You won’t regret it. Gathering some of your closest to drink a glass of wine or beer (or two), and share in some good laughs and conversation in the middle of the week, is the best way to make it through the mundane realities of the work week.
Of interest, Jeff and I had dinner with our friends Dana and Aaron last night, and they have their own twist of TVN: bad movie nights! Dana is even working on a website to…wait for it, wait for it…encourage people to have their own BMV! haha, sadly for TVN’s around the world, this post is as far as my encouragement goes, and although Dana is still working on the site, you should check out The Rules to get some general ideas.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, go off into the world, gather your friends, gather some drinks, and help the week go by!
