4 Reasons Why 2 Weeks is Too Long for Scandal to be Gone

The next episode of Scandal isn’t for another week. And the last one was last week. And it’s been too long (7 days) since I watched it last. Because I’m addicted to it in the worst way. So here I am with a bad excuse for writing about Scandal, talmbout why it shouldn’t leave us for two weeks.

1. 14 days between episodes feels like FOREVER.

b. Thursday truly do feel different when there isn’t a new Scandal episode. It’s like, I have like almost 6 hours free to do something different and I don’t want it. I bet you’re wondering why it takes up so much of my time. Well, I made a handy chart to help you understand (because charts make everything more awesome).

Scandal Time Suck

See? I have good reasons. O__O

iii. Ummm… 2 weeks in between quotes like “Why didn’t I meet you sooner? What kind of a coward was I marry her and not wait for you to show up?” is MUCH TOO LONG! Seriously. President Ghost and his LoveDrunkness for Olivia stay slaying me with statements like this. I can’t blame her for always giving up her Power Glitter (word to @MsNyreeEmory) to him.

4. It just is. This is fact. If you disagree, you are wrong. And cannot be trusted. That is all. Carry on.

Why’s this list just 4? Because I’m too lazy to come up with five.

So whatcha’ll doing tonight? I mean, I ain’t busy so… we could play Ruzzle or something. Maybe I’ll learn a trade. Or read about the history of knitting. Or look for winter white coats online. *slumps on the couch pouting* *sings* Ain’t no sunshine when Scandal’s gone…

HOW WILL I DEAL, LAWD?!? I’m over here hitting my *chair slide* like:

P.S. We all got issues. Don’t judge me for mine. (-__-)

    The FIRST thing I did when I woke is this morning is make my FB status say “It’s Thursday and Scandal isn’t coming on tonight. Sigh.” A few people corrected me. It is, but it’s a rerun. Yeah…so LIKE I SAID…it’s Thursday and Scandal isn’t coming on tonight. I’ve already watched and rewatched and processed all the previous episodes. I don’t WANT to watch them again on a Thursday night! Thursdays are for NEW episodes!

    So……I’m at work. 🙁

    This is my truth. Except the hours you’re writing I’m waiting for you to be finished writing. LOL I feel like a jilted lover, why come Shonda wont take my calls? I’ve been loyal. Did the flowers (tweets) wilt to soon? Did she not like the chocolates? I don’t even care cause as soon as next week comes back I’m going to give it all up like we aint never parted for two weeks. shooo

    Luvvie you be knowin. A week without Scandal makes me feel like something is missing. Black Twitter just ain’t the same on Thursday without it.

    I think my feelings can be summed up so perfectly by a tweet from last week “Scandal treats us like our name is Edison. It pleasures us and then ignores our phone call for two weeks” *le sigh*

    I say, we find out where Shonda lives, pitch a tent and chill on her lawn in silent protest the next time she decides to give Scandal at two week break. WE CAN’T HANDLE THIS!

    I love you 🙂 not in that Giving up the Power Glitter (!!!!!lol) way. But in that “let’s do the 12stepstogether…later” way. 7 more days. We can do this. Be strong

    Why does Shonda not give two dambs about our feelings and emotions?

  14. January 25, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    LOL at “Learn about the history of knitting”. You are a mess. I still haven’t caught onto the excitement of the show, perhaps because I’ve only seen 2 episodes, 1 of each season. Maybe I should get Netflix.

    Ok so why can’t you review my program Person of Interest? Because I kinda watch Scandal but I LIVE for POI.
    Real talk I don’t like president Ghost, he ain’t good enough for Liv. His eyes are too far back in his head and he had Patrick Swayze KILT! How can y’all forgive this man? Huh cause he feenin for Liv? Shoot he was feenin for Molly too and that’s how all this mess got started in the first place. Also his muscles look old. When he took off his shirt for the sexing of Liv I was like Naw son your chest hair look sparse! Some people thought that mess was sexy but my uterus said “No absolutely not”

    I can’t with this skeletor faced president.

    I’m obsessed with Scandal but I’m glad it didn’t come on this week. Why? You see my teenage sister introduced me to Pretty Little Liars and I’ll be dammed those teens and their drama got me hooked. This week’s PLL epi made me hit a new level of feelings. Had Scandal come on this week my heart might not have been able to handle it. My ghost would be haunting Shonda right now.
