Guilty pleasures

March 8, 2009 at 2:47 pm (tv) (, )

I have a couple tv guilty pleasures.  Television should be somewhat relaxing, afterall you’re just sitting there watching tv.  Howevever shows like 24 & LOST are anything BUT relaxing – you have to think way too much!!  So that’s where shows like AI, Laguna Beach, Dancing with the Stars, etc. come in.

Well last season I got hooked on The Bachelor (actually I guess it was the Bachelorette).  I think it was just one of those things where nothing was on & I caught it late in the season so then I was just curious who the girl picked.  Well she didn’t pick Jason – and I liked him.  So, when I found out he was the next Bachelor – then I got hooked on that season!  I was rooting for Melissa (watched her on one of my other guilty, guilty pleasures Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders – lame, I konw!!).  Well if you watched any of this last season then you know how that one all turned out. 

But rumor has it, two of my guilty pleasures are about to be combined!  Drumroll please ….  ‘Bachelor’ Star Melissa Rycroft Joining ‘Dancing’!

I guess we’ll have to tune in tomorrow night to see for sure!

Redemption

Thanksgiving cannot come soon enough!!  Sure, I love turkey (can do without the stuffing & dressing), smoked ham, sweet potato casserole, broccoli casserole & pumpkin pie, but what I love even more is that I just learned that Thanksgiving is coming a few days early in the form a 24 special – a 2-hour event!!

Did you 24 fans know this?  Am I about 7-weeks behind??  It comes on Sunday, November 23rd & will set the stage for Season Seven which starts in January!!!

Jack is back … finally!!!

The Real Housewives of ATL

According to Bravo TV (set to premier with a midnight preview July 30th):

According to real life:

If ONLY I had enough room on this post to explain the story behind this picture:).

I must admit I actually enjoy the RHW of the OC, but I think alot of that is because it seems like such a little fairy land world.  I think it’s going to be hard to envision the fairyland Bravo will be promoting when these ladies live in Alpharetta, “upscale” Sugarloaf area & the “exclusive” area of Sandy Springs … i.e. places I know that are absolutely nothing special!! 

But I’ll still tune in out of curiosity … or maybe to see if I spot someone I know:)

Have you noticed??

March 18, 2008 at 11:24 am (The Biggest Loser, tv, weight loss)

The Biggest Loser is on tonight!  I’ve been more hooked this season than in the past for some reason.  But I must say I’m not that happy about two things:

1.  The Twist – If I were a player (still in the game of course) oh I would hate that twist!!!  How stinky that you have to try & beat the same person – again!!

2.  Last week’s ending – I’ve always loved how TBL actually kicks the person off the same night – no “tune in next week for the exciting conclusion” … until last week!  Ugh!!!

Now for two questions:

1.  Have you noticed that the guy contestants now leave their shirts on?  What is up with that?  When they were 300lbs they took them off and now that they’re 200lbs they cover up.  Granted many of them need to get toned up before they should take their shirts off, but why was it ok at 300 and not at 200???

2.  Have you noticed that the girls still take their’s off?  Why do they and the guys don’t?

Not earth shattering questions by any means, but I am curious!

Overheard

March 4, 2008 at 2:47 pm (3 year olds, playground, tv)

Evan needed to get some energy out, but it’s either been freezing, super windy and/or raining here the last few days (Saturday & Sunday excluded – it was gorgeous) so I decided to take him to the nearest (and cleanest) fast food joint with an indoor playground – this happened to be a newly remodeled/reopened Burger King.  It’s one of those where you can actually sit & eat in the playground room, not like the ones where there’s just one bench (so that probably made no sense, but if it did it will help explain this story better). 

So we’re sitting there – eating lunch – in the playground room – with all the other moms & children doing the same thing.  The mother/daughter duo behind me is eating lunch & the girl starts whining.  She of course wants to go on the playground (afterall, she’s in the playground room).  This girl was no older than 3 – she couldn’t have been.  Even if she was super small for her age, she could have only been 3-1/2 at the most.  So she’s whining & her conversation with her mom goes like this:

Mom:  “you’re not going on the playground” (even though I’m torturing you by sitting right next to it).

Mom:  “Do you know why you’re not going on the playground? Do you remember what you did last night after mommy went to bed?”

Girl:  whiney, whiney

Mom:  “You got up, turned on your lights AND your TV & watched television all night”

Now I do give the mom props because she held her word & the whiney girl didn’t get to play on the playground – but is it just me or is it super crazy that a 3 year old has a TV in her room?!?!  I mean is that normal?  I didn’t think I had to worry about that one until at least elementary school.  That’s crazy to me!!!
