F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Appreciation Post

Last July, I started re-watching the whole FRIENDS series (all 10 seasons) to get through a rough patch in my life. I’ve seen it a total of 4 times now, and I really can’t say it will ever get old for me. I mean, it isn’t the best show on TV, but it’s definitely on top of my “Things That Make Me Happy” list. 
Ironically, it’s also on top of “Things That Make Me Cry” list.
In any case, FRIENDS will always be my favorite show ever and I will watch it over and over and over…

I Feel You, Andy. I Feel You.


This is The Office’s Andy. I make the same forlorn, dejected face whenever I feel like I lost something that I’m emotional about. That exact same face. Looking down. Almost smiling, but never really. Hints of getting ready to scream and cry “WHY?” out loud.

I really felt Andy in the latest Office episode. It has happened to me a million times, and I don’t think things will ever get tired of doing it to me. I sometimes think that it’s just the way it’s supposed to be. Melancholy and infinite sadness, referencing the ever morose Billy Corgan.

To make matters worse, they end the episode with Andy singing the Macy Gray song, I Try. Truly one of the saddest lyrics ever.

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
Boy, I need your touch
Your love, kisses and such
With all my might I try
But this I can’t deny
I play it off, but I’m dreaming of you
(but I’m dreaming of you babe)
And I’ll keep my cool, but I’m feenin’
I try to say goodbye and I choke (yeah)
Try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
(when you are not near aahh)
Goodbye and I choke (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I try to walk away and I stumble (hey, hey, hey)
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear (say it Lord)
My world crumbles when you are not here
Goodbye and I choke (I’m choking)
I try to walk away and I stumbe
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
(when you are not near, yeah, yeah yeah)
Yeah, yeah..
Anyway, I’m a bit teary-eyed right now and felt like writing this down real quick. Just to let everybody know at at exactly 2:58PM on a rainy Saturday afternoon, Charles is as sad as Andy.
