Long and rambly randomness [Nov. 20th, 2007|10:29 pm]
I am breaking my no-food-after-9:00pm rule while watching my second reality tv show of the night. My patheticness knows no bounds. It doesn't even count that I'm eating something relatively healthy; some low-fat provolone on a toasty english muffin. Any points the low-fat provolone wins me are totally lost by the butter I slathered on the sourdough not-even-close-to-whole-wheat muffin. In my defense, the store was out of whole wheat english muffins. Seriously. I even looked behind stuff. In the bread aisle.

The Boy went to have his first real sleepover at my cousin's house this evening. Husband is on his way over there now to bring him home. Apparently, everything was going fine until it was time to actually go to bed, when he told my cousin, I can sleep in a bed with Mommy, and I can sleep in a bed with Daddy, but I can't sleep in a bed with C. (C is his cousin). On the walk home, the truth came out - C was grabbing The Boy's feet under the covers and it reminded him too much of a Goosebumps book he and Husband are reading.  I'm perfectly OK with letting him be too young for sleepovers for a little while longer.

Oh, about the reality tv. One of the shows I watched was The Bachelor, which is not a show I watch. But last night there wasn't anything else on and I was too lazy to turn off the tv, so I caught the final show. And normally I would be rolling my eyes, but everyone was just so sad that it sucked me in. So of course I had to watch the "after the rose" show tonight. The whole thing made perfect sense to me; I said last night that he probably felt like since he cared for both of them so much it felt like he didn't really care for either one enough. But I have to say I really liked Deanna. And tonight it was freaky scary, because she was totally channeling me. Well, me if I were a really young and pretty brunette. But the things she said, and the way she said them, was me all over.

The other show was Dancing with the Stars, which I sort of watch. Meaning, I watch it when I can get dibs on the tv, or remember to tape it and find time to watch the tape later. I gave up on it last season because frankly no one was very good or even interesting, but this season was awesome. And tonight the guests were Avril Lavine and Michael Flatley. I think it would have been hysterical if Michael Flatley had danced to Avril Lavine's singing, but no such luck. It was still loads of fun watching Michael. It made me want to see Lord of the Dance again. Live. You gotta see it live, because the filmed version's sucky camera work really doesn't do it justice. And is it just me, or does Avril always look like she's thinking, I'm gonna kill my agent for booking this gig.

A couple was dancing to her singing, right?

That would be pretty distracting I think.

My wife loves that show and I loved the pretty women dancers.

Yes, that was a couple who had left the show previously. Every time I watch that show, it makes me want to learn ballroom dancing.

I got sucked into that show maybe 3 shows before the finale. I liked Deanna too. I'm guessing he's either got complete commitment issues or is still in the closet. Nothing else makes sense. Some bachelors ended the show at least wanting to date or continue to explore a relationship in the past, to give it more time to see where it goes...I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm not sure why he wanted to cut it off completely.

And this would be why I try not to get sucked into reality TV. I get too invested and it sucks when you realize these aren't really fictional characters you know will really be ok in the end.

I missed DWTS....I usually love that show but I've been sucked into House lately. Actually, I've been working really late nights and so lately TV has been in the background and I've been getting sucked into all sorts of shows.

I need a good book.

I love house, too - we usually end up watching one and taping the other.

Oh, and I totally agree with you about letting The Boy be too young for sleepovers a little longer. Sleep is all about comfort levels for me too.

Avril always looks like that. ;D

Mmm, cheese!

It's definitely okay for him to be too young. Ethan is definitely not too young - he never passes up a chance to get away. ;D Although, he only has one real sleepover friend, who stays here just as often.

I don't understand provolone cheese. It really has NO flavor, so I can't imagine what the low fat version tastes like. What little flavor it does have, is good, just not enough of it.

I would watch Dancing with the Start when Emmitt Smith was on it. Hubba Hubba! I watched a little bit of it this year, but I can't committ to anything that is on at 9:00 pm, because on Tuesday's I'd miss house, and that's not acceptable to me. Did Jenny Garth get the boot? The gossip around my office was that she was on the verge of getting booted, and the feelings were they are only keeping Marie on because they feel sorry for her.

I'm perfectly okay with him being too young too.
