Where will you be?

So, spill it! Where will you be tomorrow night at 8pm?

My friend Laura and I will be at the home of our very dear friends, Hillary and Danny- along with their own SpyBaby, Nolan. I got them hooked on Alias last summer. We spent entire weekends watching season 1-4 and now, we are back at. Each Wednesday night, we prepare a fabulous meal, sit and discuss the previous episode and then, dim the lights, start the tape and dig in to all that is Alias. That's where I will be...what about you?

Watching with my dad since he's been the only other Alias fanatic I've watched with my friends suck they never got into and whenever I wanted to have marathons they would just blow it off grrr.

Sadly I will probably be watching it alone in my apartment because no one in my family watches the show and my fiance says I become some crazy girl he doesn't know when Alias is on... Oh well, at least this way I don't have to threaten to beat anyone up if they talk during the show!

Because Alias is not on a Tuesday or Thursday when I will be gone, I will actually get to watch in IN REAL TIME, not on tape, and not the day after. I do believe this is a first. Of course, I will be taping it so I can go back and rewatch it. I am making my husband wait to watch The Amazing Race because I saw no other way around it. :) The Amazing Race can wait a day since I've been waiting what seems like years for the return of Alias.

Also, before the boards get overloaded after tomorrow night, I will take this opportunity to announce that we are expecting our own little Spybaby in October. :) We're excited. And no, there will be no naming the child Jack or Marshall or Sydney or anything like that... The only similarity is that my real name is Jen. :) Not birdie, in case anyone was wondering. But I may have to make the little one a Spybaby onesie....So there ya go.

It's okay Jess! My friends will probably make me watch it in the other room since I can't seem to keep my mouth shut about spoilers!

My husband and I have an Alias tradition. We make pizza, buy a good bottle of red wine, and settle in for the viewing (we call it our Sydney and Vaugn moment). I can't wait! And Jess, you know that all the rest of us who also turn into "crazy girls" will be watching, so you're not truly alone. And besides, there is nothing worse than watching Alias with someone who is not equally obsessed --too many questions!!

Robetron said...

That's right Jess. If people with whom you watch the show can't keep a lid on it until the comercials, and can't shut-it when the comercials are over, you are better off watching alone.

Me, I will have to record both hours and watch it later. I have another obligation on Wednesday nights that will easily eat up an hour and 1/2 of the show, so I am better off waiting til I can go home, prep supper or snacks, get an ice-cold Desani water, comfortable clothes, shoes off, lights dim, volume up, and remote in hand. Then, after the opening music, I will have to straighten everything again, because I always seem to loose my maturity at that point. Ahh, what will life be when it it is over?

I am seriously having my cable shut off in 7 weeks.

Congrats Birdie-Jen!

Kiki said...

BIRDIE!! That is fabulous news!! If there is anoything I love more than Alias, it's babies!! YAHOO!! That's awesome! Congrats!!

jenn256 said...

I will be putting my baby to bed and send my older baby (husband) to the upstairs TV so I can be alone to concentrate. I won't start on time, I will start after an hour or so, so I can FF through the commercials (Tivo is the greatest!) Just me, a great bottle of wine and Syd, Vaughn and all of my other spy friends!!

PS- Congrats Birdie, that wonderful!!!

Kiki said...

Jenn, I was worried you weren't speaking to me for sending all those spoilers!

Jess dont'feel bad I will be watching alone in my apartment too. A good friend of mine is only got caught up to halfway thru Season 4 -- damn her!! I will be ordering a pizza, some wings, crack open a few beers and enjoy 2 hours of Alias. Plus that show Invasion comes back too, so make that 3 hours on tv time on ABC tomorrow night for me (pathetic I know....).

Oh the pain of living in a college dorm and not having a quiet room to watch Alias live... Even though it's unbelievably painful to tape the show and watch it later, it's infinately more so to try and watch while people come in and out of the room. I'll probably watch the episode the next morning, even though i'll be dreaming about it ALL NIGHT! I can't believe the day we've waited for is here at last!

Andrew said...

I'll be taping it for future viewing, but watching it as soon as I get out of church at a friend's house who has DVR. He'll have it paused and waiting, so we can start watching at 8:30pm. (That's EST, for all of you jealous West Coasters) :-)

lhaaheim said...

I have already reserved the living room and my entire family (they don't like Alias, why is beyond me) has been forbidden from the viewing area. Unfortunately I don't know anyone else who likes Alias so I'm on my own tomorrow. Which is good because then I won't be distracted and I can enjoy it in peace (I generally have a noisy house).

slingshot said...

watching with my roomies, eating spring rolls.

uncle111 said...

Definitely watching and taping it at home on our modest HD ready(oh well)flat screen by myself. Again, the only one in the house who watches. My brother and I will rewatch it during lunch at work the next day.
I'm already gettig nervous.

srg-alias said...

Sadly I will be by myself cuz I don't have anyone to watch Alias with (sniff), but I don't care, I'm gonna be all hyper and bouncing on my couch at 8:00 tonight. :) Sorry I've been MIA this week, I'm actually busy at work for a change, can you believe it?!?

jess517 said...

Boomboom, I hear you on the college dorm room thing. I just graduated last May and watching Alias in my room was so hard. Worse yet was my junior year when it was on Sunday nights. I was an RA in a all girls dorm. One night a week guys were allowed into the girls rooms. And of course that had to be Sunday nights. So I would have to keep my door open and be subjected to crazy college boys running up and down my hallway! I would sit like a foot away from my TV so I could hear it, screaming half of the time and sitting there with my mouth wide open the other half. I am pretty sure that all of the guys who visited my floor and were not aware of my Alias addiction (as I had worn the girls way back at the beginning of the semester)thought that there was something seriously wrong with me... :)

Now with that said I am going to go curl up on my sofa and watch the first half of season five to celebrate Alias Day!!!

jess517 said...

Oh I almost forgot! Thanks for the moral support everyone!!! We really should start a support group for when the show ends....

jenn256 said...

yeah Jess, Alias Anonymous- AA. I would join! I think it's an addiction, but one where you can use your mind and imagination. I'm pretty sure you would have plenty of people to join from the blog. :)

I will be watching it on DVR. My husband took a second job so he won't be home till 8:30 or later and I don't want to watch it without him. I will probably rewatch the last episode before he gets home. I love your site, I stop in often but rarely comment. Happy watching everyone!

Alicat said...

BTW, did you see that there is a scheduled outage today at 4 PST? Hope it comes back so you can post!

Kiki said...

Thanks AliCat for reminding me. I will post a reminder for everyone.

Is anyone here from Oregon by chance?
