Catching up on trashy TV

Did I forget to mention that it is super fucking cold outside? Yea...I think I did. And Yea, it is. We had a nice warm fall, and then all of a sudden...BAM...winter hit us like a motherfucker!

I am in the mood to talk Reality TV today, so that is what you are getting. First up, Top Chef, which I caught up on last night. It is always hard to tell who is gonna be around for a while just from the first episode, but it looks like the two European guys (who mentioned that at least 50 times) and the lesbian are the strongest thus far. There is some serious dead weight...

Anyone else notice how sun burned they all got in the first challenge? They had them outside for what seems like it was probably the whole day, and by the end, every one of them was red like a beet! Even Padma's feet were all red. Did no one think to bring any sunscreen?

Top Model. I didn't watch much of this season, but the girl that one seemed like she was the strongest the whole time. I was surprised that the runner-up made it as far as she did, since she seemed to be sort of...I dunno...uninspiring? But again, I didn't watch a whole lot.

Real Chance at Love? Absolutely phenomenal. VH1 continues to top themselves in their constant quest to produce the most embarrassing television around. This show literally kills brain cells. Charm School? Same story.

I think Munchkin will be well enough to go to Chicago tomorrow. She came home at 3:00 yesterday, but she seemed to be pretty much herself this morning. I actually wouldn't mind if she came home early again today to rest up, but I will leave that up to her. She has play practice this afternoon, which is not going to wear her out as much as, say, basketball would have;-) Chicken fingers are up in the air at the moment...

I guess that is about it. I sort of feel like writing about the Auto industry bailout, but I don't have the energy at the moment, so maybe I will cover that tomorrow. I, not surprisingly, have some thoughts...

I've watched a few episodes of the recent "Top Model" series and the girls are so screechy and unbearable I've ended up switching it off every time. I thought it was a really dud series this time. What happened?

I looove Top Chef; you're def right about the two European guys.

And Charm School, as bad as it is, makes me giddy.

We have "Germany’s next top model" over here and the next series will start beginning next year.
I hope it will be a bit entertaining.

Glad that Munchkin is feeling better! And I have a feeling that it's going to be a REALLY cold winter. It's not supposed to be 28 degrees outside in November in GA!! I hate cold weather!
