Friday Night Dates in 2006
Apropos of nothing, this funny little sequence occured to me.
Understand that, in the Bay Area, East Bay cable subscribers tend to get the East Coast feed of the Sci-Fi channel, while Peninsula subscribers get the West Coast Feed. As a result, Battlestar Galactica comes on at 7 & 10 on the East side, but 10 & 1 on the Peninsula.
So imagine you’re a single guy living in, say, Palo Alto, with a girlfriend who lives in, say, Fremont.
You get off work early on Friday, and head out to Fremont to pick up your girlfriend. Before you go out, you catch BSG.
So you go out to eat, and head back to your place, just in time to see… BSG.
When that’s through, you turn off the TV and do whatever it is that young couples do at 11:00 on a Friday night. (Play cards?)
At 1, you switch on the TV again, and have a little rest while watching BSG.
Almost makes me wish I were still single.
Well, that, and the knowledge of what girls will do these days if you have a camera and a Webshots account… but that’s a subject for a different post.
