Blog Sitcom, Ep. 1: "With Mediocre Blogging Comes Mediocre Responsibility"

INT. ART MUSEUM – NIGHT

Jill is at the NYU Stern Alumni holiday party. She approaches her friend TATIANA, who is standing at the bar.

JILL
Hi Tatia– Ooh cheese!

Jill greedily loads up her cocktail napkin.

TATIANA
Your last post was on December first.

Jill looks up, surprised. Through a cheese cube wedged in her teeth, she squeaks out…

JILL
Huh?

TATIANA
Your last post was on December first.

Jill stares blankly for a second as she chews, then finally swallows.

JILL
You read my blog?

TATIANA
I checked it twice today. I’m bored at work.

JILL
That’s so exciting! I have another reader!

Tatiana sternly stares at Jill.

JILL
(smile fades)
Sorry. I’m aware that I haven’t posted
since December first. I’m trying,
believe me, but I’m having trouble.

Tatiana holds Jill’s gaze, not letting her off the hook.

JILL
(nervously)
See, what happened was…

Another friend, OUI, joins them as Jill continues.

JILL
…I wanted to write a post about my
top 5 Christmas sitcom episodes, but
I can’t find the clips online because
of copyright and stuff, you know?

OUI
Yeah, totally.

Tatiana turns her stern gaze on Oui.

TATIANA
You don’t have a blog.

OUI
(confused)
No, I don’t… sorry?

JILL
I swear, I spent 3 hours looking for clips.

TATIANA
Uh huh.

JILL
…and next I want to write about Daddy’s
living room but I need a picture and…

TATIANA
Oh, leave your poor father alone.

Beat. Jill is temporarily speechless.

JILL
But… that’s what the blog is about.

TATIANA
Why don’t you write about Tom?

JILL
He doesn’t do anything wrong!

Tatiana raises her eyebrows skeptically.

JILL
Ok, ok. I’ll think of something
to write about Tom.
