Just Like Old Times

Caryn and Becca came over tonight for some takeout and knitting. Just like old times.

I'm not sure where to begin with our television selections tonight. It's borderline embarrassing, but considering that I unabashedly adore both Dawson's Creek and The Spice Girls, what do I have to hide?

We started with Star Search: a B-list show hosted by a C-list celebrity featuring B-list talent rated by C-list judges. And what the hell is Arsenio thinking with this hairdo?! At least we got to vote online.

Then there's The Bachelorette. I'd like to hate her, but she actually seems rather nice and I must admit she's painfully attractive. A lot of the guys were complete doofs, though. I found myself getting annoyed that they would choose guys like that for a chick that hot; it's almost as bullshitty as having Courtney Thorne-Smith on a show, and giving her Jim Belushi for a husband. Riiiight.

Anyway, it turns out that Caryn went to college with Bachelor Rob. At first I thought, "Wow, what a coincidence." But then I realized that at some point very soon every American will have been on a reality show. It's only a matter of time. I just hope that my chance at reality fame isn't eating horse rectum on Fear Factor.

On the subject of TV, was Mariah Carey really flashing her pussy on Mpls' KARE-11 Today show with Roxanne Battle? Her skirt is majorly short and she appears to be not wearing panties. It's an important issue that needs to be addressed.

i'm just not even sure how to respond to that.

anyone care to comment on the status of mariah's...uh, bush?

He's not just Mariah's Bush, dear. He's everyon'e problem. And I, for one, hate him.


It would appear so.I'm sure clips will be appearing in Inboxes later this week.

shrubbage? on tv? wowzer. and good point, mopsa. is dawson's creek (or gilmore girls) everyone's guilty pleasure? a few people have mentioned it in conversation this week... hmmm.

On the subject of knowing someone who is on a reality tv show, I went to high school with one of the girls on that 'Joe Millionare' show.

One of my neighbors talked to her and the facts I've heard are that he's not all that attractive. And he was an asshole. And that one of her primary motivators to not get booted was a desire to stay out of the crappy hotel they had to stay in if they didn't get chosen.

So I guess that's my claim to fame. Well, that and you and Matt Lee.

I've heard he's a million record seller in Germany. Along with David Hasselhof.
