Drunk Dial

Last night, I did something I’m embarrassed about. It just happened, you know? I was having that whole internal debate: I should call. No, I can’t call. Don’t call. She’s doing fine without you. It’s a bad idea. But I totally want to call. Just one quick call. I think he might need me tonight. But I’ll regret it tomorrow, I know I will. I really need to call. I’m not gonna call. I won’t call.
But then I called. Both of them. I feel so ashamed.
I was just sitting there on the couch, and then before I knew what was happening, the phone was in my hand, and I was voting for Sabra and Danny on my favorite show, So You Think You Can Dance. Have I reached a new low? Perhaps. But it felt good in the moment.

    It’s going to take a lot of bleach and a very stiff brush to remove the stench of shame from this little excursion into the absurd. I mean, seriously….ew.

    Take consolation in that it’s a toll-free number to vote, so at least there’s no financial hit to accompany your shame!
    Unlike my shameful addiction to The Home Shopping Channel, which comes with a rather severe monetary burden. Who can resist those adorable Hummel figurines? Not me!

    sir: don’t look at me that way! i’m still the same jenny, honest! listen, it was a mistake… it’ll never happen again!
    dave2: oh, man. those hummels are pretty tough to pass up. however, it’s the precious moments figurines that really put me into debt. :)

    Oh. Dear. God.
    What is it about these dancing shows that turns otherwise intelligent women into dialing fools? Hereby accept my humiliated confession at voting via phone for Dancing With The Stars… I draw the line at HSN, however. Well, unless Suzanne Somers is on… Or that vitamin guy…

    Go ahead… take the walk of shame. We still love you, but you realize this means you lose your privileges to the remote AND the telephone, right?

    I haven’t voted on this season because, uh, they pissed me off when they got rid of Jessi….but I have been known to vote. Soberly.
    But if I were to vote, it’d be for Sabre and Neil. :)

    I just dropped by to tell you how FREAKING awesome you are, and as far as I’m concerned, you can start watching “Don’t Forget The Lyrics” or that show where they play bingo, and I’ll still love you.
    Thank you for coming to meet us Friday at the Dinner of Ridiculousness. I wish I could have brought you home with me!

    You’re never going to tell us what was said during the drunk dial escapade, are you?

    laurel: i don’t know! i just get so sucked in – and i totally scoffed at a co-worker who was voting for american idol… glass houses, i suppose.
    shari: ha HA! i still have the internets!
    chase: i don’t think i was watching when jessi was on, but i’ll be sooo pissed if they vote off sabra!
    tracy lynn: i know. you don’t even have to say it. :)
    belinda: the feeling is mutual! i was so sad to leave all of you!
    kapgar: well, it went something like this: “Brrng. Brrrng. Thank you for calling So You Think You Can Dance. You have cast your vote for contestant number 07. Goodbye.” Totally one-sided.

    As far as drunk dials go, it seems pretty tame. I wish that was my worst drunk dial.

    Don’t feel bad at all; I actually DVR the show and wake up thinking about it every Wednesday (and Thursday) morning. And adore both Sabre and Danny (she’s a great dancer with AMAZING hair, and his centers really do rock).
    (cut to…shame spiral)
