Power Binge and Unboyfriend

I didn’t blog last night. I’ve been enthralled in binge-watching Power. Unboyfriend got me hooked on it. I know I said I wasn’t going to see him anymore, but he gets me, I can tolerate him for more than five minutes, and when he’s on his A game, he knows how to rock my world. We had one terrible night together and I got up, got dressed, and pretty much told him not to call me until he could get his shit together. Basically, the sex was wack and if that’s all that there really is between us, then he needed to go back to his Superman ways that he had when we first started this thing four years ago. Yep, I did the math recently. We’ve been seeing each other for four years. When I say see, I mean we see each other maybe once a week, maybe every other, but usually a couple times a month at least. There’s a very good chance he’s the reason that I shy away from committed relationships. I don’t think I want to give him up. He’s not ideal for me, but for some strange reason, we just work. We never fight or argue. He doesn’t worry about what I’m doing. If I don’t reply to a text for 9 days, he doesn’t give a fuck. He doesn’t give a fuck about anything really as far as our situation goes except for me. If I go too long without talking to him, he checks in on me to make sure I’m alive. He understands my winter moods and knows that I spiral on the edge for a few months every year until the sun comes back out. I almost said that if you saw me walking down the street with him you’d be very perplexed because he is 100% bad boy and not really my type, but I think I’d be lying. IF I had a type and I like to think that I don’t, he’d be exactly my type. The kind you don’t take home to mom. The type that would kill for you if necessary. The loyal type. Not ideal for a “real” relationship, but it’s hard to find one of those in today’s world, so why try?

Anyway, the last few times I’ve been to his house we’ve been streaming the show Power. Usually because he missed it when it aired originally and I got sucked in, but it’s like in the fifth season, so I sit and ask him questions about all the characters, which you would think would be super fucking annoying to him, but he just answers. Every. Single. Time. So I started watching it this week from the beginning so I could quit ruining our watching of it. And I’ve made it to season 2 episode 5 in the last 3 days. It’s no wonder I’m not getting shit else done. I know I should prioritize and this is the reason I rarely start a new series. I get so caught up and my addictive personality kicks in and before I know it, I’ve spent 44 hours watching a show that sucked me in when I could have been doing so many other (productive) things. I’m sure I’m not the only one that happens to. So, now I’m just trying to get caught up so I can get back to my real life because I have no will power to just watch one episode a day and be done with it. I have to watch until my eyes burn. So that’s where I’ll be for the next week or so until I get caught up. My daughter said, “if you like Power, then you should watch Empire.” I’m trying to stay away from any more TV for a while after this. I can handle the occasional movie, but I have a binging problem when it comes to series.

HOWEVER, if I was going to start a new series, what would you recommend? Drop it in the comments….
