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.
