Go Away, Cats

I swear, ever since I’ve publicly admitted to hating cats, they’ve been following me. Watching me. Stalking me. They’re stalking me.

They sit outside of my bedroom door at night and purr the night away. They know what I said about them and they are angry. They are out to get me. Someone make it stop. Calling all cat whisperers. I am soliciting your help.

On the other hand, (which is that I’m not really terrified, just even more annoyed at cats) I sort of feel like Phoebe Buffet. You know? What if one of the cats is my mom and she’s trying to tell me something? Mom, is that you? If you need to tell me something please do it as a human, since like, you are one.

Humans are better than cats. (Most of the time.)

Question: When does life not relate to Friends?
Answer: Never.
Example: When I went to the bank to close my account today, of course I considered walking in and saying, “I wanna quit the bank.” But I didn’t. I contained myself for fear of being misunderstood, much like good old Chandler Bing.
But no, really, any situation in life, there’s a Friends episode for that!

This would be perfection.
And because I just wrote that sentence, which was the first thought that popped into my mind when I saw this picture, I automatically started thinking about the Friends episode (The One With the Blackout) when Chandler gets stuck in the ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre, and she offers him gum, but at first he says no and then about a minute later he says, “On second thought, gum would be perfecton.” And then right after, he’s thinking to himself, "Gum would be perfection? Gum, would be perfection. Could of said ‘Gum would be nice.’ Could of said ‘I’ll have a stick.’ But no, no, no, no! For me, gum, is PERFECTION!" 
You can tell that Friends is the one TV show that I have watched way too much of by the fact that I just made a connection to it from one word that randomly popped into my head and a photo of books and a swing in the springtime.
By the way, TOWTBO is one of the best episodes. 

This would be perfection.

This is THE “Friends” building. What is THE “Friends” building, you ask? It’s the apartment building above Central Perk (let’s all pretend that restaurant is really a cafe!) in the lovely Greenwich Village that among others, is home to Joey Tribiani, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Rachel Green and sometimes Phoebe Buffay and Ross Geller! While some would say the use of the apartment building in the show was merely stock footage, a true fan of “Friends” believes that Joey and Chandler are relaxing in their lazy boy recliners inside that very building as we speak, while Monica and Rachel are playing with baby Ben in the apartment across the hall.
My best friend and I had a phase where “Friends” was basically the only TV show we ever watched. We had all of the seasons on DVD and if we were sitting in front of a TV there was no question as to whether we would watch “Friends” or not. The fact that we could quote almost any line, from any episode, verbatim kind of makes me wonder why we hadn’t set out to find “the friends building” any sooner than as recently as about two weeks ago. We do live in the outskirts of the city, getting to the building should have been simple enough. Or so we thought…
If there’s one thing anyone knows about my best friend and I, it’s that when both of our senses of direction are combined, all direction is lost. We have such a reputation for getting lost that her dad ironically and jokingly calls us Lois and Clark. We happened to be having tea in Greenwich Village one day about two weeks ago, when we realized we were in close proximity to the legendary apartment building and said, “Hey! let’s find it!”
So on the hottest day of the summer, walking under the sweltering sun, we set out from the tea room to the corner of Bedford and Grove. Well, thanks to both of our outstanding navigational abilities we ended up walking in circles around several different blocks in the area probably close to ten times. “Hey that store with all the hipsters in it looks familiar! I think we’ve passed here before!” 
If you’re wondering, we did finally find it. I mean, my hair was frizzed out to Guam and I’m pretty sure I lost 3 pounds in sweat from walking around in the heat for over an hour (I know gross! but it was that hot) but we found THE Friends building! It was so worth it! The best part was, my friend and I, two totally non-tourist, native New Yorkers, got to the building at the same time as a large group of cackling, skyscraper gazing, non-English speaking tourists. Awesome! I felt like yelling, “I swear I’m from here!”
The other best part is that while I was walking around the city today, kind of just wandering and enjoying all of the scenery, totally not desperately trying to find a specific destination, I unknowingly walked right up Grove Street, and caught a perfect view of non other than, THE friends building! Oh, the irony!

To me, this is one of the funniest scenes in all of the friends episodes from any season. I quote this scene all of the time. Probably more than anyone ever should. It was actually just this past Saturday when I referred to it, word-for-word, because my cousin brought her new born twins to my graduation party. So of course we got into the discussion of telling them apart and how could I not reference the clown/duck Friends scene?! Anyway, I remember the first time I saw this episode and I’m pretty sure I laughed for like 10 minutes after this part. These screen caps really don’t do the joke much justice because Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc are like 80% of the reason I think it’s so funny. I love both their characters and I don’t think any other actors could have made this scene as funny as they did.
