Jersey Shore

TrainOne of my guilty little pleasures is Jersey Shore.

It started by accident. While flicking through channels last year I stumbled upon Jersey Shore and lingered on that channel a while just to torment my husband.

In turn, he set up the PVR to record Jersey Shore.

Then we started watching the recordings.

It became a family event. Each Friday we’d watch what had been recorded on the day before, and I have to admit that the word ‘Jersday’ was uttered more than once within our walls.

I grew to actually like Pauly and Vinnie and to enjoy the train wrecks that are Snooki, Deena and Mike.

I know, I know. But wait, there’s more. I caught an old, random repeat from Season 1 or 2 last night and it totally inspired the stuff I wrote today for Consequence.

At the moment I have a total of two scenes (two scenes! How lame is that?) which I think I’ll be keeping once revision time comes around, and that’s one of them. It’s good. Like, really, truly good.

Maybe I’ll name one of my characters Jersey as a tip of the hat.

  1. You are not alone, Rhonda. I, too, have been sucked into the black hole that is Jersey Shore. Yet, I think–as a writer–it’s good to familiarize yourself with ALL walks of life. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read dialogue for a “street thug” character that’s written in proper English and I think “That’s not how this character would talk!” Your website looks great, by the way. I hadn’t visited in well over a year, so I thought I’d drop by and see what you’ve been up to! Busy as usual, I see! 🙂

    1. Thank you for popping by and admitting that you share my guilty pleasure 🙂

      As for the website, a friend if mine put this layout together for me. I <3 it 🙂
