the 24 drinking, er, Oreo game

this season of 24 has hit a new low for lise and i. it's taken me beyond what is logically acceptable and pushed me out of the plane. there's NO WAY that the current situation could even remotely have played out this way.

now, please: don't tell me, "it's just a TV show" - like, DUH!! but come on! this whole president logan in conspiracy with the terrorists and his poor wife, aaron pierce lasting as long as he did, kim coming on the show again without doing something totally stupid, non-satellite phone reception in airplanes, bauer's knowledge of plane anatomy, and the list goes on and on and on and on....

the sad thing is: sutherland has signed on to do three more seasons! NOT a time for rejoicing.

now, all this might be driving me to drink, except that i'm not a big fan of drinking. i'm not a fan at all of drinking games. this drinking game, compiled from a couple different ones located online, has been modified to accomodate Oreo Cookies instead of drinks or shots. and of course, eating is something i do with great proficiency and skill. you ought to try it.

    Jason and I are feeling the same way about this season.

    I think we would consume a pack of oreos each every Monday night if we played this game. It's gotten so predictable. 3 more seasons? I don't think I'll be watching.

    I think I'll be sick from the combo of eating that much oreos and being annoyed by the show. Maybe I should eat grapes instead?

    Then again Ryan Bast once ate over 20 oreos in one sitting and said he felt fine.

    haha - all good points, jen.

    and the sad thing is: even as i voice disdain over the plot and direction of the show, i'll probably find myself parked in front of the TV next january when jack miraculously reappears in yet another ridiculously impossible scenario of crime-fighting vigilantism.

    ah well.

    and as for oreos, i sometimes wonder why people would buy the regular oreos when you can buy double stuf. i mean, why bother even making regular ones anymore??
