I haven't actually started watching season 4 yet, although I have been lulled into a surely false sense of belief that it is MAGICALLY DELIGHTFUL based on the gifs Dollsome has been posting that coincidentally exclude every main character who is not Danny or Mindy, but I just have to post to express my delight with the accuracy of this gif re: describing myself. If I ever do a friending meme again, I'm going to include this.

Mindy Kaling
(okay to be more accurate I was raised mostly on books and I only began raising myself on TV around age 13...but I still turned out perfect.)

In other news:
-Speaking of Tumblr + gifs, I saw that both Castle and Sleepy Hollow's premieres got rather low ratings (series lows, in Castle's case), and my immediate reaction was this.

-I wasted 20 minutes whipping up this chart the other day and I regret nothing:


"What shows do you watch?"
"IDK I HAVE A VERY COMPLICATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM HERE."
The answer to “what shows are you watching?” is much more complicated than I can explain in a single sentence, so I made a diagram. The show stable is for what I’m actually watching on a weekly basis right now, but that’s only a small part of what I love. Click for further explanation.[[MORE]]Further complicating matters, the show stable is also usually comprised of shows that I keep up with because I don’t love them – they’re easy to get an hour of entertainment out of and then never think about again. When a show is good, I usually need more than a week to fully digest each episode unless I only have 1 or 2 shows to watch at all.Front Pasture: shows in the off season (or ended) that I nevertheless am still obsessed with on a daily basis and/or love more than the show stable. (Glee and The Office frequently hang out here if it’s otherwise empty, as do Friends and How I Met Your Mother.)Back Pasture: shows I plan to start watching soon, but am not quite emotionally ready to add into the mix.Off on the Range: shows I am WAY behind on and/or will not catch up with until midseason/summer, but nevertheless want to claim ownership of so nobody thinks they are as unimportant to me as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or something.Long story short, now you know why I named my blog Televinita even though I have tried to keep it limited to my super-fandoms instead of All The Things.
Remember how I told you once in college that I like to imagine all the shows I watch as horses?

-Today I skipped off to an estate sale on the premise of "6800 square foot house" and the phrase "my mother was a CLEAN hoarder," and I was not disappointed when I retrieved a Baby Quackers (My Little Pony) from the basement and took her home for a dollar.
