Let me paint you a picture:
Every other Friday night, I drive to Pennsylvania to see Mike. When I pull into the drive, he comes down the back steps of his apartment, gives me a kiss and takes my awesomely over-sized L.L. Bean bag from my Forester, and carries it up the stairs. I follow, checking the bird feeder that I left there for the cardinals that apparently only come around when I visit.
Mike usually has dinner ready. My weekends at Mike’s are full of things I do not have at home–like real food. We eat, and he usually has a bottle of wine waiting for me. Then we settle back in front of the television for something else I do not have at home–cable. And it has become our Friday night tradition to watch Ghost Adventures with Zak Bagans.
Now, I must make it immediately clear how I feel about Zak Bagans.
• You can accuse me of it all you want–I do NOT find him attractive. In fact, my crush lies with Aaron (the one on the far left)
• His guido-esqueness only adds to the show.
That’s pretty much the extent of feelings I have toward him.
But I cannot stop watching this show. I am completely addicted to it. This past Friday, he was trying to seduce a ghost who had a tendency of shagging the living. Freaking hilarious. And I don’t know who writes his scripts for him, but the big words that come out of this man’s mouth are most certainly not his. I do not hate Zak Bagans, and I’m not trying to make fun of him, but the off-ness of the show completely makes it.
As I mentioned before, my ghost heart lies with Aaron. I think this is because at first, he was just their tech guy to begin with, and when they realized he was a “magnet for paranormal activity,” they let him into the club.
I honest to God do not know what it is about this show that I like. I just get sucked in to the point where I can’t turn away.
But this is my latest addiction. You should watch it.
