I’m so fortunate to have not one but two friends independently interested in the JONAS TV show. Some relevant conversation excerpts from this evening follow.
In unrelated news, tomorrow I move to Washington! I am excited, clearly. Funny that it looks that something like 5 of my top 18 or so friends will all be there.

8:45 PM me: i watched 2 episodes of JONAS today
Mary: haha, yeah? what did you think?
8:46 PM me: it’s growing on me, a little
specifically, i think joe is growing on me
Mary: yeah, I mean, it’s not AWESOME
but it’s ok
me: there was an eyebrow joke in one of the ones i saw
8:47 PM i appreciated most
all the weird, tagged on collars and cuffs of plaid
those’re the weirdest pseudo uniforms ever
8:52 PM me: so i guess it’s any combination of (1) plaid, (2) burgundy, (3) navy, (4) embroidered school logo…..
Mary: yeah, only with more flexibility for JONAS, of course, than anyone else
especially the girls
who wear exactly the same thing all the time, with the occasional cardigan
8:53 PM me: no, we wouldn’t want the jonii to have to stifle their rock-star sensibilities at all
Mary: well, duh
they are a Big Deal
Mary: have you seen any of the episodes with their raving fans who tear their clothes off?
me: i think in the first one? with the velcro sleeves and whatnot?
it happens a lot
Mary: they come back inside in tattered clothes
8:54 PM and there are girly screams […]Mary: I will keep you up to date as it goes though
if anyone threatens that purity ring, you’ll be the first to know
me: thank you, i need that
8:57 PM wait, the school is called horace mantis, witha logo of a praying mantis?
how did i miss that
there’s an episode where all of them join the cheer squad, cause you get to touch cute girls.
8:59 PM me: wow […]also, i could live the rest of my life w/o ever having to lay eyes on frankie again and be content
Mary: dude, seriously
what happened with genetics there?
9:09 PM why are his brothers so cute and he is so…weird looking
they must really improve with age
