Well, obviously I haven’t spent two weeks trapped in a study… Although it feels a bit like it.
Remember I started drinking again on St Patricks day? I haven’t really stopped since. With our surprise General Election looming, I’ve decided I may as well just see how bad things can get. I'm feeling a bit muddle but it has been fun drinking with Real Live Friends again. From what I can remember…
With that in mind, I don’t really feel like much has happened so it might be a bit of a struggle writing this week.
Appropriately though I do feel like one smelly cat…
“The One Where The Premise Starts to Fall Apart”
And so we kick off with Phoebe’s incredible Smelly Cat video.
Aside from this, the Friends™ are mostly dealing with the troubles of roommates at the moment. Or a lack of them, as Chandler and Joey continue their longing glances. This time their story-line does end up firmly with them being like a couple. Chandler even hits the rebound with new flatmate Eddie.

90s fashion may be back, but otherwise things are sitting firmly in the past. The boys fawn over Baywatch babes, and the gang is impressed by Joey having a phone. IN THE TOILET.
Nowadays I can’t imagine anyone going into a toilet without their phone!
Monica and Ross have the opposite problem, as Rachel and Ross’s relationship forces them to spend more time together. Having siblings in the cast was a smart move. It adds a new dimension to the Friends™ as well as a bit more weight. It’s sad seeing Ross realising Monica doesn’t feel the joy he does at their little spats.
We learn how to act domestically as children, so it’s no surprise that how we interact with our siblings influences it. And that we can revert to these silly little games all so easily.
My partner told me I act exactly like Ross here when I’m in an immature mood. But all I heard was “Nyeh, Nyeh NNeh”.
Real Live Sitcom Moment:
… nope, I’ve got nothing. Dammit, something must have happened?! How can my life not be matching up to Friends?!?! ™
