You know you love me.

Nah, I'm not looking for all sorts of adoration. I'm referring instead to the catchphrase from my latest addiction - Gossip Girl.

I finally managed to watch the premier of this fine, fine piece of television this evening and uh oh - I'm hooked.

What's not to like? Filthy rich teenagers drinking underage, sleeping with each other and each other's boyfriends, fancy parties with feather hairstyles, parental pressures, the not so rich kids trying to make it good with the popular kids...and they all take the city bus to high school.

Yeah, right.

Other than the bus thing (I mean, come on!!), all the elements of a fan-freakin-tastic show are there. And will be waiting for me every week.

I do find that the S character looks much older than she's supposed to play on the show. Back from boarding school, you say? Looks to me like she's back from her third year at college. The other gals look the part but S - too old if you ask me.

I love a good series premier. The promise of so many evil deeds of the past still to be unearthed. And then there's the revenge that's soon to follow.


I think the one of the reasons that I like this show, among many others, is the fact that it's such a complete departure from my everyday life that I can totally immerse myself in it without being reminded of the fun elements that plague my daily existence. And right now, that's just what the doctor ordered!

And can I say I love how much this is based around a blog by an anonymous girl? You had to know that would appeal to me.

Hubs hates the show, of course. Didn't even want to be in the same room with me while I watched. Guess I'll have to watch it after I come home from my Tuesday nights out while Hubs is playing with the boys. Don't want to add even more stress to his Sludge-ridden existence. I know - I'm such a thoughtful wife, no?

Anyhoodle, if you've not yet caught this show and you have a soft spot for rich teen angst, I highly recommend tuning in to this gem of a program next week. Check your local listings!

XO! You know you love me.

And that's your daily dash. How's your diva doin'?

PS Kris, I answered your question from the last post in that post's comment section. :)

Saw it - and I'm actually having dinner with her tonight - so the advice was very timely. Thanks!
Can you tell that I'm addicted to your blog?

I LOVE that show too!!! It was just so good! The books are even funnier and crazier too!

If only all of our lives were Oh So Glamourous! :)

And, yes, we do love you, Diva!

I am hooked as well, although I got a bit luckier and hooked my hubby as well. Ok, that might have a bit to do with the fact that I have the majority stake in remote control power, but hey, whatever works :) Smile. Edm Girl
