o Norman, how I miss ye

Did anybody watch the Real World last night?

That girl Robin really needs to stop drinking. She's just a regular, normal, slightly-irritating girl during the day, but when she drinks she turns violent and downright mean. I realize that things are being edited to produce certain "characters", but still man -- I truly hope that after watching herself this whole season, she quits drinking. Or at least quits getting drunk.

She is ALWAYS doing stuff that she regrets the next morning, and has to take back. My God, some of the things she was saying last night to Cameron -- I don't care for Cameron so much, but jeez, she's just young, and the stuff that Robin was saying was so. Mean. It was heartbreaking to listen to. That whole house (except for Jacquiese, or however he spells it, he's my favorite) drinks way too much. They are constantly using that as an excuse for their ridiculous, assholic behavior.

I'm lucky. I'm not a mean drunk, or a violent drunk. I'm just a sleepy drunk. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The Real World used to be about putting seven people together who were TOTALLY different and watching them fight. Oh and also about kicking one roommate out in the first month.

Ever since Hawaii (not that I've watched every season, but I'm guessing), it's been about putting a bunch of partiers together, and watching them get drunk and have sex with each other. Where are the virgins? Where are the Christians? For God's sake, man, where are the gays??

You ARE a mean drunk. It's just that we all love you so much, we don't hold it against you.

I am? Really? I'm also a forgetful drunk.

I am a silly/mushy/flirty drunk. And sometimes, unfortunately, a jealous drunk (I am not proud of this, but at least I will admit it).

Do you remember Julie from the first season in New York? I used to work with her during my freshman year of college. This was way after she was on the Real World, and she would just freak the fuck out when anyone would ask her about it. You should kind of expect it, really, when you move back to your home town.

Of course I remember Julie! I almost titled this entry "o Julie, how I miss ye." She was the nineteen-year-old Southern Christian virgin dancer. Do you mean to tell me she didn't stick with the dancing?

I went to the same school as Ruthie from Hawaii, and the gay dude from Boston (I didn't watch that one). (I *think* it was Boston). king_kai hung out with Ruthie a few times our freshman year. I wonder if by now, everyone in the country knows someone who knows someone who was on the Real World?

Man, you are right! I never really watched the real world, but I remember that everyone was different, and now from what I can see they really ARE the same!

I guess watching good looking people have sex never gets old.
littlewashu
May. 5th, 2004 09:37 am (UTC)
Oh, it does, because 1) they're all "goodlooking" by cheerleader/frat boy standards and 2) they're all dumb as a post.

I never have the urge to start watching a new season of the Real World, but if I accidentally see two episodes, I'm hooked. I don't know what it is.

And marathons, man, marathons are KILLER. Ugh, there goes my Saturday. Back me up here, ladies.

i'm a talkative drunk. i just wanna talk talk talk talk. this is NOT very different from regular meg, or I suppose Reg Meg, but just...well, i like to talk.

I don't think I know any women who are NOT talkative when drunk.

King Kai's idea for a reality game show:

Three sober male contestants are locked into rooms, each with a woman and 10 liters of white wine. The women drink as much as they want, the men must stay completely sober, and may not touch, hit on, or even flirt with the women. Contestants are eliminated if they:
1. Fall asleep.
2. Start screaming "Shut up shut up shut up" out loud. 3. Hit the woman.
4. Gag the woman.
Winner is the last contestant left. It would probably require a full hour timeslot to play this game out in real time, but you could probably condense it into a half-hour if you pick the right women.

i have been told that i am a source of great humor when i am drunk. not because i dance on tables or wear lampshades on my head, but because i knock down all the dams up there and say EXACTLY what i'm thinking without hesitation.

oh, and far as the gay quotient on The Real World . . . my boyfriend and i are currently trying to figure out what the deal is with the Philly Real World cast and if one of them is of the homosexual persuasion. you can bet that i will post that shit in a hurry when i find out!

Yeah, there used to be a Token Gay Person (or bi, but then they tended to have a preference for same-sex partners), who would offend and confuse the Token Conservative Christian and the Token Angry Black Man, who had never met a gay person before, Token or otherwise.

Somewhere along the line they must have decided that that would be one less potential sex partner for the other roommates.

Hey, wanna hear my theory about how there should be a lot more bisexual characters in soap operas? Here it is: there totally should be! Can you IMAGINE the love polygons??

Jacquese IS the coolest one.
Man, yes. But what about Frankie? She just gets drunk repeatedly and makes lame i-can't-be-held-accountable-for-my-actions-but-i-don't-remember-whether-or-not-i-cheated-on-Dave confessionals. Thats the girl that pisses me off the most.

Cutters, man.

Re: Jacquese IS the coolest one.
Yeah, I *want* to like Frankie, because I like her hair and her makeup, and she's not all . . . cheerleadery and "regular", like the other characters. But man, she makes terrible decisions when she's drunk. And her behavior last night was apalling.

yes! I watched 3 Real World episodes last night, which was awesome, since I needed to catch up. They're all such STUPID drunks. Robin and Frat Boy are my least favorite drunks because they get loud and mean. And really, really fucking dumb. I've done some dumb things when I've been drunk, but after doing them I DON'T do them again for a really long time. and man, I've never called my "best friend" a bitch just because I had some drinks in me.

The punky girl is the worst girlfriend I've ever seen. Put some alcohal in her and she's even trying to hook up with Frat Boy.

I got caught up too! I missed some in the middle there, but whatever.

Man, watching Frankie makes me want to get a lip ring, though.

fuck the token christians, virgins and homosexuals...

where are the stock "real world" angry black wannabe hip hop stars?

that was where the real drama was!

i haven't paid attention to a real world season this much since the new orleans one. i don't feel like i've missed much but i'm still enjoying myself.

for the first time ever, my rw object of affection has changed. originally it was robin (because i like big fake boobs); but now my love has shifted to jamie. no one has made being boring so attractive!

I know, the Token Angry Young Black Man was often the one who got kicked out! Jacquese isn't angry at all, he's a Laid Back, Sadly Shaking His Head At His Stupid Drunk Roommates Black Man.

MAN I was going to say something about the Asian chick, but I couldn't remember her name because she's so boring. Man, she's young too, right? Because I hate the way she talks. She's always trying to make a big huge deal out of stuff.

OH MAN and she tries to talk like she's hip-hop or something! It's so embarrassing, I can't help but wince.

So, all this being said, did you ever happen to catch that reality show on UP or WB or whatever, the one that had Ron Jeremy and Vanilla Ice and Erik Estrada? I don't know WHO the two young ladies were, but they were pretty much the worst drunks imaginable. But luckily, it meant Ron Jeremy just had to wait where he was for easy poon.

Also, Kate and I caught the part of some Real World in the last week where some drunk chick was giving some guy the "I used to like you, but then you acted like you were all hot shit" or something lecture. Man, that lecture ...

man oh man....so much to say and so little posting space. instead of commenting on one of the comments in this post, i'll try 'em all out.


1. frankie totally sucks balls! there is absolutely nothing appealing about her. her bangs are THE SUX, her attitude is bullshit, her girlfriend skills are repulsive, her 'phobia' makes me want to shit myself, and the fact that you can be in one of the most beautiful places in the world while whinig and complaining makes me fucking sick. FRANKIE SUCKS X 10!

2. washu is rarely mean, but when she is...fire breather. i swear.

3. julie from RW#1....HOT!!!

4. Oh, it does, because 1) they're all "goodlooking" by cheerleader/frat boy standards and 2) they're all dumb as a post. They ARE good-looking people....period. don't give me this cheerleader/fratboy crap. if you find them to be physically unattractive, then i would say you are pre-judging them as being stupid by your past experiences with people in frats/cheerleading squads. granted, they are all dumb as bricks (except J), but still.

5. kai's game show is limited, but still makes a point. i love the concept.

6. Yeah, I *want* to like Frankie, because I like her hair and her makeup, and she's not all . . . cheerleadery and "regular", like the other characters. nothing that frankie does is original. nothing she wears is original. her makeup is not original. her hair is not original. her piercings...right! not original. so what i don't understand is why you don't think she's 'regular'. i don't and don't want to like frankie because she is a total dumbass. example: cystic fibrosis + smoking = DUMBASS

7. I like the fact that Frankie gets to yell and bitch at stupid preppy people, because I would want to do the same thing, if I was her. well, i love the fact that 'stupid, preppy, regular' people talk shit about her all day long. she is a total drag, super fucking stupid, annoying as shit, and her eyebrows are terrible. sorry...this has become a total 'i hate frankie' deal. not what i intended, but she sucks...so it's ok.
8. the reality show with RJ and Erik Estrada....wasn't trishelle from RW Vegas in that? man, she gets uglier every time i see that bitch. before they left vegas, they should have tossed her ass in the lion cage at MGM.

one last thing. gina read this post last night and asked me, "are we regular people?". I said,.....um.....well, i'm not sure what i said since i was falling asleep, but i'm sure it ended with, "...i hate people".

1. Right, I understand, I said that I didn't like her attitude, but I like her bangs. Matter of opinion.

4. Huh? They are good-looking by other people's standards, and I recognize and acknowlege this. But I personally am not interested in any of them. This is a separate issue from their idiocy. You don't think that different people have different ideas of what is physically attractive?

5. I think it's stupid. MOST people become blathering, annoying idiots when they have enough liquor in them. Big deal.

6. I didn't say she was "original", I said I liked it. Please excuse the term "regular", I'm SO sorry I said it. If I were having that conversation in person, I'd've elaborated, but I figured that you guys would know what I meant. The other characters are very straightforward and boring in their dress and style. I'm not saying that Frankie has invented this crazy new steez, but she IS different from all of the other roommates, and let's face it, from most people in general. She doesn't have to be a unique snowflake for this to be true. It's an issue of context, for me.

one last thing -- I hate people too! That's my point! In the context of watching people on a teevee show, if you don't have anything interesting or awesome going on to make you stand out, then you're not going to appeal to me very much! I am only saying all this shit in the context of the Real World television show. It would be inaccurate to assume that my statements were intended to make sense in relation to the REAL real world. I'm not going to judge people whom I meet in real life in the same way that I decide whom I'm rooting for on a television show.
