In case you missed it, welcome back to Litchfield: Orange is the New Black Season 4 premieres today, June 17th and for many of you,myself included, this won’t be your first sentence. In fact Netflix revealed that more than half of OITNB viewers have re-watched at least one full season since it debuted in 2013. Repeat offenders unite, the wait for more of your favorite Litchfield inmates is FINALLY over.
Here are just a few of my favotire GIFs that capture the EXITMENT about the premiere of the Orange is the New Black Season 4

“Gonna Savor every episode like Chapman is savoring that lone frozen waffle”
This is me TRYING to FIGURE OUT How I can bingewatch the entire season in one sitting which brings me to today’s post–My Netflix Sneak Secrets (aka how I get my bingewatch quality ME time On). The truth is there are only so many times you can hear the Dinotrux theme song before you start sneaking off to binge the new season of Orange is the New Black in the bathtub or “do work in the garage” while you secretly watch Bloodline.

1) Find a bathroom with a LOCKED DOOR and tell your kids you have a stomach virus. Trust me NO ONE will be coming anywhere near that bathroom door– this will buy you at least two back to back episodes of Orange is the New Black season 4.
2) YOU wear your THIS IS MY NETFLIX SHIRT so that your kids know YOU MEAN BUSINESS.
#3 Set your alarm clock for 4 am so you can get a good two hours of episodes before you have to get the kids up and ready for school.
