God Damn You SNL. What have you done to me?

I was talking to my friend Eliza on Skype last night and i've was telling her that I hadn't really been blogging a whole lot because I don't really know what to say. I haven't really been doing much all my friends are either working or travelling, god damn them! and I've lost my camera charger which is the most annoying thing in the world because it's now out of battery. So with a mixture of talking to Eliza and looking at tips from other blogs who say you should blog about stuff that's you know... you I realised that I had something to talk about...

I am absolutely obsessed with Saturday Night Live right now. To the point that I think I have a problem.

It all started when I got a months free subscription of Netflix and randomly decided to watch it when I was hung over one day and I've pretty much been obsessed ever since. Which is a bit weird because i've never been a particularly big fan of sketch shows. I think one of the main reasons is because whilst I watch it I like to pretend that I live in New York City living a sexy life. And I guess because it's funny too... I'm a sucker for Stefon, any political impersonations*-especially when Jason Sudeikis does Joe Biden- and obviously the digital shorts/weekend update/ anytime anyone dresses up as an animal. OH and TRIANGLE SALLY!

Needless to say I now feel like I MUST GO TO NEW YORK! My friend Hannah visited a few months ago with her boyfriend but said that she wants to go with girls so she can go shopping so I may have to make her come with me. I really, really want to go in the winter time, I wanna bundle myself up and walk around Manhattan. That's the weird thing, when I imagine visiting I'm never really doing anything in particular, just walking around in the cold with a (faux) fur coat on, maybe eating a hot dog.

So that's pretty much what i've been doing, watching SNL whilst making some cards. I managed to put a couple of listings up (which you can see here and here)... and pretending to live a sexy life in New York.

Not the most exciting thing in the world but a broke student can only do so much with her summer!

*sorry about the terrible video, it's all I could find.


  1. I eat up whole seasons of whatever on Netflix as well!
    Well, not whatever, but when I find something I enjoy, I watch it compulsively.

    NY is a little too dirty in the summer, in my experience, but it's precisely then when you get all the awesome outdoor concerts —I've seen pretty big names there, seating on the grass with friends, without paying a penny!

    Then again, winter in NY is beautiful, in a stark way... Go soon and let the world know about your trip! :)

  2. Thanks for the tips!

    If I get a part time job whilst i'm at uni I think I might actually be able to go for a short trip this academic year! If not my plan is to come back home after I graduate and save up for a big trip there!

    I'll definitely be blogging about it if I get to go!

  3. I've never watched SNL... does that make me a loser?!

  4. no! I don't think you can watch it anywhere here unless you have netflix!
