If You Read This, I Promise That There are Links to Pictures of Kristin Bell!!!

I guess maybe it is too hot out for serious talk? Not a lot of response to my downward spiral into the relevant yesterday...or maybe I should have just waited a day to take on Jesse Jackson and his off-the-record sniping at Obama. On that note, if you have ever asked "Who is finally going to be able to call Jesse Jackson for what he is and tell him to shut up?"...well, we may have our answer;-).

So, let's totally change the subject and address a new shameful addiction of mine. I have read a lot about SSB (secret single behavior) lately, and while I don't really have anything that I would be that embarrassed about (nor am I, in the technical sense, single), I certainly have habits that I know should be embarrassing.

And recently, I have developed a new one. What is this habit, you ask?

Gossip Girl.

I know...I know...you don't have to tell me. The show is awful. Absolutely atrocious. The dialogue is terrible. The stories are asinine and predictable. The characters are barely even one dimensional. The cliches are beyond obvious. The acting is somewhere between poor and mediocre. The people aren't even that good looking.

But somehow...I just can't stop watching. The clothes are outstanding, and it is narrated by Veronica Mars. So it has those two things going for it. (What can I say, I have a soft spot for itty bitty blond girls that can be sex symbols:-P) Beyond that, I have a hard time pinpointing the attraction. But I am hooked, and there is nothing I can do about it.

So there, I have come out of the closet. As a Gossip Girl fan.

Unless there is some kind of Gossip Rehab, I am gonna have a hard time kicking this addiction. But hopefully my admission can help some of you gain the strength to admit to your own struggles. Maybe even a few of you have the same problem that I do...and maybe, just maybe, we can get through this together.

OMG! I LOVE GG! Seriously, I'm obsessed and have even been calling it my "new Veronica Mars." ;-) I think I have to get on Gchat today so we can discuss further.

Yup, I'm addicted to it as well. And alongside Kristen Bell, I also love Penn Badgley :)

I was sucked into Gossip Girl as well. You're not alone.

Carrie - I definitely like Veronica Mars better...no more entertaining, but a MUCH better show.

LPEG - I am not a huge fan. He sort of looks like Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I am actually not a huge fan of any of the guys on the show.

Jenn - Thank you:-) Having other share my problem helps a lot!

Dude, I know where you are coming from. I don't actively seek the show out, but I've caught four or five episodes now and whenever I DO catch it- I'm absolutely transfixed. I blame it on the fashion. I like seeing what these young kids are wearing to school. I'm pretty sure you could have totaled my entire closet up and it would have still cost less than one of their handbags.

As for the Jesse Jackson thing.. oof. I think the best (and only good part) that came from it all was watching Lou Dobbs struggle to say the word 'manhood' on CNN. That prompted a fit of giggles. Because I'm mature like that.
