S01 E11 Stan's Return

S01 E11 Original Airdate November 30 th , 1985 This is the third time I’ve started this and the third time when I go to save my progress Word just shits itself. Obviously there’s an issue here that I am not going to fix until this episode is over. There is no problem, only Zuul. We open up with Blanche whistling along with the tea kettle as she and Rose look at brochures. Blanche says they should go to Martinique in the Caribbean because all the men there speak French. Rose wisely asks what the women speak and when she learns everyone speaks French she doesn’t want to go. You know who speaks French? Dorothy. Remember a few episodes ago she learned it and aced her final despite Blanche’s totally disruptive grandson staying with them? No? Only me then? Ok. Rose says she would rather go somewhere like Williamsburg, VA or Washington, DC. Of course this is when Sophia waltzes through the room. Sophia: You’re moving, Rose? This would be touching if I liked you more.

Time for a Golden Girls PSA

Oh my God, I miss my weekly updates. It takes me about two hours to watch an episode of Golden Girls and do the blog. And while that is two hours well spent it is two hours I haven’t had for a while. I have been stupid busy and I have officially started my master’s program, so now I’m stupid, stupid busy. By the time I finish all my writing work, the last thing I want to do is stare at my computer screen anymore.   This blog is not dead. But from now until the end of the year it will be sporadic. October looks slightly better. I have less time-consuming projects to worry about. I will say, once the new year hits I should have more free time. In the meantime, I’m trying to work on a schedule to watch one episode through the week and post on Sundays again. This may end up being totally unsuccessful, but we’ll see.
