we are golden, we are starfish

what happens when productive intentions meet the middle of the afternoon drowsy lull, and both decide to jump on the couch for a little spongebob? not exactly a nap, and not exactly dreams, just very very floaty and almost participatory. i was there in bikini bottom, in spirit at least. and while i was expecting another program to come on, to let me know it was time to get up and get a move on, the bob went on and on. some sort of sponge-a-thon i suppose. hours, it was, till i roused myself enough to realize i was supposed to have been to the store and back, and finished the dishes.

it’s scary how much i know about spongebob. i know almost all the episodes by heart. i always listen for the small voice-over in the background of almost every catastrophe crying out “my leg”. i think that alone may mean i watch a little too much.

what is it about spongebob? it seems like it’s always on, or more accurately, i focus in on it moreso than other nicktoons. it’s almost the only tv i watch. is there some sort of mind control thingy at work here? why do i love that little yellow sponge so?

  1. I just realized that I’ve only watched Spongebob about… 4 or 5 times, yet I own two Spongebob t-shirts. I don’t know what this means about me, except that I can never remember when it comes on and that makes me sad.

  2. it’s on pretty much all the time on the weekends, on nickelodeon, and most early evenings too.

    i guess it helps if you watch mostly cartoons, as a general rule.

  3. I freaking love SB. I really mean love, too. I wish I could have a little SB of my own, as a pet. We have SB on a majority of the time our television is on as well.

  4. Spongebob rules my sorry little world. I AM Spongebob!

    You know why he’s so appealing? Because he’s cheerful, optimistic, friendly, energetic, and can still be a little turd. Just like most of us want to be.

    I, however, AM Spongebob….most of the time.

  5. mostly i posted this because i had that great title rolling around in my head, and i had to use it somehow.

    i’ll try to restrain myself in the future. try, that is.
