Every week Kate will be answering your burning questions. She is the best friend you always wish you had! Here’s this weeks deliciousness!!
1. I just can’t get enough of reality TV programming. I found myself saying no to a date because SYTYCD was on and my DVR was broken. How can I stop this??
** Going into this discussion, you should know that I’d rather be at home on my couch more than pretty much any other activity. Also, my world does happen to come to a very particular kind of halt when the new season of SYTYCD airs. In light of these things, I will remain as objective as possible in advising your dilemma.
If this is a recent turn of events—the DVR not working—then I’d not see a reason to be concerned. However, if by “broken” you mean that it hasn’t worked for quite a few months and this antisocial behavior has become routine, then you should be worried, yeah. Because if SYTYCD is your kind of show, my gut tells me it’s not the only show you’ll find an excuse to stay in and watch. House on Monday, Biggest Loser on Tuesday, Law & Order on Wednesday, 30 Rock on Thursday, 2-Hour Dateline Murder Mystery Friday…just, as a for-instance.
If you can assure me that you are out tearing up the town all other 6 nights during the week—or at least open to the idea—then I’ll feel much better. And get the friggin’ DVR fixed. Why are we even having this discussion? Your priorities are misaligned, you get the DVR fixed before you eat, shit.
2. My boyfriend only refers to me by my name in public and never as his girlfriend- it has been 2 years. What gives?!?
** Uhhh, well, I dunno. Have you talked to him about it? I bet if you were to talk to him—because you should ABSOLUTELY be able to talk to your boyfriend about something like this if it really bothers you—it would be the first time he ever thought about it. You have to remember that guys are pretty simple and to intentionally omit your relationship ship status from an introduction because he just knows how much it gets to you is far too complicated a game plan for a guy.
But, you know what, if and when you do talk to him about it and he actually has a reason for why he does it, then that’s bullshit, and you need to rethink him.
3. What’s your summer cocktail of choice?
** I’m a vodka girl. Usually vodka on the rocks, occasionally a filthy dirty vodka martini, but my summer happy hour drink is ALWAYS a vodka mojito. I dunno what liquor is in a real mojito, but they are not good y’all. I simply don’t understand why you people like them. Then I was out with a friend for drinks and she ordered a vodka mojito. I’ve not been the same since. It’s cool and refreshing and smooth and light.
