Riding A Fat Boy

First off…. Happy New Year my lovey-dovies!

Can you believe it’s been almost a month since I last posted anything? So sorry about that.

It’s not my fault. Ok, actually it’s COMPLETELY my fault, but we really shouldn’t be standing around pointing fingers.

The fact of the matter is that, as some of you long-timers here may know, I like to take most of the month of December off from work, so I can lollygag around the house in my speedos drinking egg-nog and listening to old Andy Williams records. And when I’m home, especially during the holidays, the LAST thing on my mind is blogging.

Anyway, I’m back, and it’s a new year and all that noise.

So, what’s new with me?

Well, you might remember that last year when I had so much time off, I decided to lock myself in my house and watch about a thousand hours of Breaking Bad. Damn, that was exhausting. And awesome. As good a show as BB was, I told myself I would never subject my body and mind to another bout of binge-watching like that ever again.

Wanna guess what I did THIS holiday break?

This year, I finally decided to immerse myself in Sons of Anarchy. I started watching it the day before Christmas, and here we are, barely 2 weeks later, and I am about to put Season 4 to bed. I probably would have completely caught up by now if I hadn’t had to go back to work last week.

Damn damn DAMN, this is a really good show.

The best part of it is, while I’m watching it I can finally visualize myself being the biker I was always meant to be. I would have made a GOOD biker, too. I just needed to get over my fear of motorcycles, and I think I’d be all set.

I can picture myself now, riding down the road with my crew. I’d be all clad in leather, with those cool gloves that have the fingers cut off. Maybe some leather chaps that show off my huge package…

I bet I’d have a cool nickname too….. like T-Dog, or T-Boz, or T-Bag.

Yeah, T-Bag! I like it!

That would certainly strike fear into the hearts of rival gangs, wouldn’t it?

SoA is such a good show. It's a freaking soap opera, but a good one. You are going to love Seasons 5 and 6. Season 7 will be the last.

DO NOT read any spoilers for the next two seasons. Mr. Mayhem runs amok.

I have not watched that show either. Or BB.
Or The Hobbit.
Or any number of other shows!

I am sure you will come up with another series to watch after SOA.

Were you really listening to old Andy Williams records or was that irony? I vaguely remember the Andy Williams show. Was there a regular feature starring a bear who wanted milk and cookies?

Glad to discover I'm not the only person who obsessively watches season after season until I fall over dead.

I have a motorcycle... had two, in fact. My biker name is Bug DWN throat.

History is really a pact involving the dead, typically the living, as well as the yet unborn.

Oh I LOVE that show! I'm not sure why people look at me like I've grown two heads when I mention it. I mean, it's seriously funny and has just enough soap opera in it. I just have to close my eyes during the blood.

You're fast though. I've been watching it for months, and am only like halfway through season two. Does it stay as good? 'Cause I think there are like, six seasons or something?
