In which I am twelve years old

Pims: So, Tone, tell your readers. What have you been up to while you've been sick?
Tone: Er... I've watched some tv.
Pims: Some tv?
Me: Well, some, a lot, what's the difference? Anyway, it was mostly educational, interesting stuff that is sure to land me points in the next Trivial Pursuit game.
Pims: Really? Care to share some of that enlightenment?
Me: Sure. Ancient Egypt was... World War Two... I mean, the referendum in Sudan... I mean... Oh, all right. I've been watching The Vampire Diaries.
Pims: You have, haven't you. I bet you managed to squeeze in a few episodes, then, since you've been slouching on that couch for days now.
Me: Well, you see, I only had the one episode on my tivo. But I've seen that quite a few times.
Pims: The whole episode?
Me: .... No. Just this one scene, where Damon tells Elena he loves her, and then makes her forget afterwards, and he cries while he does it. And there's this really sad song in the background.
Pims: I see. And how old are you?
Me: Pims! That's rude. Besides, I'm not too old to swoon over a little romance. I don't think you ever get too old for that.
Pims: You tell yourself whatever you like, sniffles. Now delete that episode, or I'll be forced to intervene.
Me: But it's so sad! So romantic! So fantastically cheesy... I can't...
Pims: (produces withering stare of a quality only cats aspire to)
Me: Okay, okay. It's gone.
Me: (mutters to self) Good thing you don't know about youtube.

I have to show this to my friend Melissa, she loves this show. I had not watched it but started going to her house to watch Fringe & VD was on before so I started watching it with her(least I could do, I got her into vampires). Since I had not seen the episode you are speaking of she sent me the youtube clip of Damon telling Elana he loves her.

Ha ha ha. Feel better! And maybe now that you've placated her, you'll get more nuzzles and kisses from Pims (the pic in the previous post nearly killed me).

I have a friend who is obsessed with this show (I only get like 3 channels otherwise I'm sure I would be too). I just sent her this post and 5 minutes later, this was her response:

"Awesome awesome awesome. I love that scene."

You are cute. And I must admit I had the same thing going about a year ago with this scene.

I'm a nurse, and see people at their worst. With very little spare time, I record Fringe and The Vampire Diaries to watch when I can.

I watch The Vampire Diaries to see Damon and all the other healthy, pretty people. It's a fun guilty pleasure to watch and unwind. Fringe is just awesome.
