I just realized what an evolution my life has seen in the past few years, completely based on what programs I watch on TLC. I turned to that station and, much to my disgust (apparently, because I rolled my eyes and made a little “geack” sound before changing the channel) “A Wedding Story” was on. I have no interest in watching that schmaltzy, ooglie-googlie, gag me with a spoon crap* anymore.
In college it was “Trading Spaces”
Then, it became “A Wedding Story”
Then, I got married and it became “A Baby Story”
After that, it became “Bringing Home Baby”
Now? Now it’s a little of “Bringing Home Baby” and a lot of “Take Home Chef” and “What Not To Wear”
I wonder what it will be next?
I’ll probably have to start watching “The Secret Life of a Soccer Mom”
And, in other Discovery Networks news, me favoritest show evah**, Deadliest Catch, returns with new episodes on the 15th! Of April! In 12 Days! 2 Days after Quart’s Birthday! How awesome of a birthday present is that?!
And, this is just an awesome story. I like the fact that the Discovery Channel & The Associated Press are calling it “poop.”
*Have any of you watched any of the new gameshow “Moment of Truth”? It’s stupid. Anyway, we were watching it last night and the host was all “This next questions could potentially ruin your marriage. Are you sure you want to go ahead and continue to $100,000, with the possibility of ruining your marriage, or do you want to walk away now with $25,000?” And she was all “I’m going for it” and her husband was all nervous looking. Well, the question was “Have you ever regretted marrying your husband?” and she got all nervous looking and her husband was all nervous looking and swallowing and blinking his eyes all crazy and she’s all “Yes. Yes I have” and DJ and I are all “DUH. Hasn’t EVERYONE? How would confessing THAT ruin your marriage?” So, is that good that we were on the same page and in agreement (which doesn’t normally happen) or bad that we both admitted to having, at one time or another, regretted marrying the each other? We’re SO past the Honeymoon phase. Hmmmm….**
**Does using incorrect grammar and spelling make it, as I seem to think, seem more exciting and important? Kind of like ALL CAPS, italics or bold-ing something? If I’d said “MY FAVORITE SHOW EVER” instead of “Me favoritest show evah” would it have been more obvious that I LOVE ME SOME DEADLIEST CATCH?
OH! And no, I was not on drugs while typing yesterday’s post. I’d only had 1.5 cups of coffee, some Honeynut Cheerios with skim milk and some Trader Joe’s Greek Style Honey Yogurt. Got a problem with that? And since I’m pretty sure you’re going to ask after reading this, NO, I am not on drugs or hopped up on caffeine right now. I AM going to go pour myself a glass of wine. Right. Now.
