Guilty Pleasures

So I have a little confession to make. I am obsessed with ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. I know it's odd and no one else that I've talked to watches it (other than my mom, which says a lot about the demographic that probably does watch it. Perhaps I need to frequent bridge clubs to find someone to discuss with.).

AI didn’t do it for me this year (mostly because I’m boycotting in support of my awesomely talented friend The Superstar was passed over by stupid AI producers who don’t know talent when they see it.), so I have turned all my obsessions to this fantastic show. Plus I may or may not still harbor a crush for the hottie that once was known as Steve Sanders. Ahem.

It’s been so long since I’ve actually “had” a TV show. In fact, I can’t think of one since Friends and Sex and the City ended. Because those were the last two shows that made me pause my whole entire life until they were over with. And now, thank you interweb, I don’t have to pause. I can procrastinate at work whilst watching last night’s episode on line.

But I do have a problem with the stupid results show (any results show for that matter). I HATE how they drag the whole thing out way longer than it needs to be. I despise the guest singers and the pointless pimping of their new albums. The best part of the DWTS results is Jimmy Kimmel and his dance partner/custodian Guillermo demonstrating one of the dances for the next week. I die laughing each and every time! Really, they could do all of this in 10 minutes or less. And I know it’s all about the $$$$ and exposure for the network, but it still bothers me.

In other news, I’m finally getting my haircut today. Like, getting a “style” so it’s not just nothing like it is now. Stay tuned for before and after photos. Unless it really sucks, which you’ll know because I’ll go all Britney and shave my head. I will, however, have much better taste in wigs.

awh! look how sweet you are! :)

you should invest in a dvr, record the results show, and then just watch what you want to watch. Or at very least, just tape it on the VCR. I know my parents DVR AI every week and then start watching about 20 minutes into the show, which gives them enough time to just fast forward through the commercials. Do you know how much time commercials waste in your life?!

I *will* get you an interview soon... I'm just kind of being lazy right now:)

Hello, Miss Kari. :) How's it going?

I totally freaked myself out yesterday when I went to my blog only to find nothing there. it said there was a fatal error. Scared the crap out of me, but it was there today. Phew!

I don't watch DWTS, but it's only because I'm not into that sort of thing. Aw well.

Stop on by! Talk to you soon!
