American Horror Story

FINALLY Tom is back home after working out of town for several days, and I can get some sleep again. It's not because the kids have been keeping me up - it's because somehow in the last 7 years of marriage plus 1 year of living with someone else that I have become a weenie.

I blame Ryan Murphy.

Specifically, I blame Ryan Murphy's show American Horror Story. I don't know why I keep watching it when it affects me like it does, but for the love of Zachary Quinto, I still watch it. And then I can't sleep. And while Tom was gone, believe you me I slept with the lights on.

See? Weenie. Seriously peeps. I lived by myself for a long time as an adult. I didn't get married until I was 36, and probably lived by myself for 10 years before that. I never slept with the lights on. And I lived in a pretty sketchy neighborhood for part of that time too. STILL didn't sleep with the lights on. Granted, for part of that time I also lived with a giant white German shepherd (RIP Sasha...), but still? No lights.


And now I'm more than half-way through the season of American Horror Story. I'm committed to it, so I have to see how it ends. I tried to quit a few weeks ago, but I JUST CAN'T QUIT YOU, AHS. Next season though. My heart can't take it.

Does anyone else watch that crazy show and then can't sleep? Please tell me I'm not the ONLY weenie out there.

That necklace would be PERFECT for my sister! I think I need to get me some Pinterest just so I can pin your styles.

I've never watched American Horror Story, but I really want to. Thanks for the warning about not watching it alone! I can also be a weenie at times. You're not alone. You're never alone. Not really. (Sorry, that's an obscure Sting lyric and I couldn't help myself.)

I love that show, this season is way better than last I think. That Zachary is fantastic and as usual Jessica Lang is superb.

It is super creepy though. I don't watch any super gory scenes. They don't have as much as Walking Dead so I don't have to turn my head away as often.

BTW I love your t-shirt!

This is my favorite look from..I love everything!!!!!!!! The blazer over the graphic tee with the leather is just perfection!!! Never saw AHS but I wanna see Adam Levine in it so I gotta at least check out that season. Glad you are finally getting some sleep ;)

Nope. But the good news is that the DVR recorded a new WNTW! The return of Stacy and Clinton.

The other good news is that you look great in that skirt and tee. And, ahhh, the power of that third piece blazer.
Sweet dreams.

American Horror story scares the bageez out of me but you are gorgeous!

Zahra Sandberg said...

Ok I can't say I've watched the show, but that is mainly because I am more of a weenie than you and I can't even watch anything remotely scary. The closest I get is probably Snapped-you know the women murder show? Pathetic, I know. By the way that outfit is gorgeous and I am in love with the blazer! You look beautiful as usual!


Melanie said...

that show scares me to death! We are watching season 2 and I hate to say it...it's even creepier!!! Ahhhhh! The acting is superb, and you have to give it to them...they are certainly creative with their story lines!

ColoBoxer said...

You have great taste
AND are hilarious! I look forward to your blog every day. Glad I'm not the only scaredy cat in my age range!

I can't watch it, just can't. But I'm intrigued by it so I was reading the episode recaps on MFAMB, which scared the pants off me enough, but now she's not going to do them anymore and I'm bummed. I still don't think I'll ever be able to watch.

@Karrin - yes you DO need a Pinterest account, cuz if you're anything like me, you need a few more time suck interweb stops in your life. Ahem.

@Suzanne - I never liked Zachary Quinto until this show, and girl, don't EVEN get me started on The Awesome That Is Jessica Lang.

@Sheree - fanks, mama. And WATCH THE SHOW.But I'm warning you - the Adam Levine season is WAY creepier than the initial season, so brace yourself.

@Jan - wait a minute - why didn't MY DVR catch a new WWTW???? It looks like I need to have a little come to Jesus with my electronic equipment.

@Dusty - you tho thweet you just gave me a toofache.

@Zahra - Ain't no shame in being a weenie - and I think we have ALL watched Snapped a time or two. And thanks, pretty lady!

@Mel - I KNOW - WAY creepier than last season, huh? I just can't figure out how they're going to tie the million different story lines together. Aliens and devils and serial killers, OH MY!

@Colo - well THANK YOU!!

@Jenny - The Project Rungay fellas also do excellent recaps of the show if you don't already read them. There are plenty of commenters who say they don't watch but just read the recaps. Come, join us. I know that sounded a little cultish and creep, so I think my work here is done.
