I watch a lot of tv shows. I use the excuse that I didn’t have television when I was a kid (like cable tv, we had a television, but it was only used for like Disney movies and my parents’ National Geographic VHS tapes), but truth is, I love tv shows. I meet new friends, go new places, and learn new things. Yes, I said it, I learn new things. And I don’t watch documentaries. I watch mostly teen tv, sci fi, mysteries, and comedies. And I get educated from these, you guys. I’m here to say, that television can be educational.
Here’s what I’ve learned from my hours of TV watching.
- I learned what FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) was from The X Files. I also learned to trust no one, that aliens do exist, and that everything is a cover up. TRUST NO ONE.
- I learned that the term “going commando” was coined on the show Friends. I also learned that you definitely do not do that in another man’s fatigues.
- I learned who Paul Anka was from Gilmore Girls, since she named her dog after him. I also learned that coffee is good, it makes you talk fast, and that is just fine with me.
- And from Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, I learned how to wear fringe. (They made a lot of crap up on that show, so I didn’t learn a whole lot else, except how to look far off in the distance and yell SULLLLLLLY really loudly).
And there you have it. Parents, television is educational, so let your kids binge on Gossip Girl because you never know what they may learn.
So this is my Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman outfit. It is inspired by Sully, who if you ever watched that show, will know was the dude with the really pretty blonde hair who thought he was a Native American, but probably just had a great spray tan. This is the amazing tunic dress I got in the Halloween section at one the Goodwills by me. I love this thing and while it is costume-y, I’m just going to be careful to accessorize it correctly (i.e. don’t wear my fringe boots with it unless I’m using this as a Sully costume) and that way, I can attempt to get minimal stares while I wear it. (Some stares are always inevitable with my style).
I’m attempting to learn stuff from my fifth round though Pretty Little Liars, but you guys, I just get more paranoid and afraid of the letter A, so I’m not sure it’s the MOST educational…
Happy almost Friday y’all!
