I did it. Last night I finally broke down and watched The Hills. OK, I was in the mood for My Super Sweet 16 so turned it over to MTV hoping against hope that I could get a Sweet 16, or at the very least a True Life involving some kids who spent all their parents money on drug addiction or something.
But, what I got instead was The Hills. Now, of course I know some of the cast of characters, because hey, lets face it they are characters. And, I am not completely ignorant because I did watch Laguna Beach, back in the day. Not that that day was that long ago. It was more like back about a half day ago rather than a full day. I mean you really need to save that phrase back in the day for something, well, back in the day.
Honestly, it was like being in the dentist's office. You thought you would rather face death than to go, and when you were there you were not enjoying it, but when it was over you liked that really clean feeling on your teeth that your tongue can't stop plying with.
Well, all I can say after watching it is that Spencer needs to cut back on the X, Heidi appears to be getting meth face and this guy Doug who took out LC on a date really needs to have that tic of his checked out.
My favorite part of the show, other than wondering if Spencer can in fact actually open his mouth, was the date.
Lauren: I'll have a fuzzy dragon
Doug: What kind of beer do you have?
Waiter: Stella Artois
Doug: Oh, stop right there. I'll have a Stella
Lauren: You can tell a lot about a guy from his drink choice
Doug: And what does me having a beer say?
Lauren: That you are a guy's guy.
Doug:You are so beautiful
The camera then cut but the ended up doing it under the table because any guy who orders a Stella is worthy of doing. Of course if he had ordered a Schlitz he would have only got a hand job.
For some reason every person on the show has the annoying habit of saying a sentence and then jerking their head up. Saying a sentence and jerking their head up. It is like they have it timed to coincide with the camera of a photographer.
