Things I Learned from New Girl

Remember how I told you I subscribed to Netflix? And remember how I told you I immediately looked up New Girl and proceeded to binge watch seasons 1 and 2 until 4:30 in the morning? In the morning! I did and I don't regret it at all. Cause guess what? I freakin love New Girl. It's my new most absolute favorite thing. I'm not entirely up to date since season 3 hasn't hit the 'flix yet (can we make "'flix" a thing?), but in finishing seasons 1 and 2 in lightening speed there's a few things I've learned from Zooey Deschanel and company.

- You're never too old for a Feeling Stick.

- It's perfectly appropriate to be financially penalized for saying and/or doing douch-y things.

3.) I've been pronouncing "youths" wrong this whole time.

4.) Not everything in life has to make sense. For example, the drinking game True American.
Does anyone really understand what it is? No. Are there actual rules? A little. Do they change each time the game is played? Absolutely. So the next time Gunther looks at me with those longing eyes wondering why the heck I'm not taking him out on a walk with me, I can confidently say to him "look, not everything in life makes sense Gunther, OK?" ...cause Gunther watches New Girl and has critical thinking skills and stuff. 

5.) Everyone has a Pogo. 
You know when you make fun of your friends and/or family members for that one really annoying thing they do all. the. time? There's a name for that now...and it's a Pogo. For example when my mom drives, she always taps her fingers on the dashboard in rhythm with the blinker. Hate it. Whenever my dad gets stuck behind a slow driver he always yells, "it's the thin little petal!" Every time. My feet sweat when I wear heels...and consequently stink when I take said heels off (too much?). Nate leaves lights on in every. single. room. in. the. house. even when he's not occupying it. Maycee farts like a human (too much?). See, we all have them. And thanks to New Girl it's now more socially acceptable to give your friends a hard time about them. Embrace your Pogo.

6.) Maybe just maybe I could someday rock some bangs like the lovely Jessica Day (er, Zooey Deschanel) does.
Probably not, but maybe whatevs.

I'm chomping at the bit (do people still say that?) for season 3 to hit Netflix cause, well, all of the above.  If you're not watching New Girl you're missing out. You're missing out on Pogos, True American, the best set of bangs I've ever seen, and...Nick Miller.

Enjoy your Tuesday folks, on three...1, 2, 3, JFK FDR!
