Like It’s 2004 All Over Again


Yesterday morning, MTV aired episodes from the debut season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County to kick off their new Summer series titled MTV Retro. In the coming weeks, MTV plans to reair episodes of Laguna Beach, Daria, The Hills and more in order to get folks to tune in and watch. I happily rewatched all of the Laguna Beach eps that aired yesterday and was reminded how much I LOVED and still love the reality TV series. Yesterday afternoon, I went for a slow 4 mile run and then last night, I stuffed my face with Detroit style Coney Island hot dogs. It was a good day.

Ah, Laguna Beach. I vividly remember the first season of that show because that was around the time I started blogging (I was still with Erik back then). Pink is the new Blog hadn’t been created yet but my first blog was. It feels like a lifetime ago … and watching Laguna Beach again reminded me of those early blogging days. I realize 8 years doesn’t really constitute “retro”ness but it does seem like a long time ago. My run wasn’t very remarkable … my sore shins slowed me down. I guess I’ll need a couple of days to recuperate so my shins will heal up. My Coney Island dinner was divine :)

Today I have a few errands to run, no big deal. I’m hoping to hook up with Ollie tonight for a hang session, I haven’t seen her in ages. Happy Tuesday!!

    Oh boy. As a resident of LB, I can hardly wait for the influx of tourists. Again.

    • @rOXy — LOL, Erik and I visited LB on our first trip to LA together because of the show. #truestory

      @Trent – yeah, but you’re the cool kind we don’t mind. I bet you never dropped an ice cream cone on the boardwalk and left it there to melt and get scummy.

    Oh, I love this! I actually found PITNB searching for Laguna Beach news (how embarrassing…)! I fell in love with the site and have been a loyal reader ever since!

    So Trent, will you ever talk publicly about what caused the demise of you and Eriks love story? Because if I remember back then he was your “david”

    • @scott — It just wasn’t meant to be. Our relationship was pretty much over for a year before we finally decided to end things and formally break up. There are a lot of reasons why it didn’t work out but one of the big reasons was that he wanted to stay in Michigan and I wanted to move to LA. In the end, it was all for the best … he found a great partner who he has been with, happily, ever since our breakup and I was meant for David.

    Ah Laguna Beach…I still use “dunzo” to this day, thanks to you :) I wonder if it’s showing in Canada…..I would love to re-watch and reminisce :)

    A) I had a professor last year who was apparently the football couch at LB when that show was filmed. B) I LOVE Daria. Of course they re-air it on MTV post-my getting the dvds.
