So Bad, Yet So Good

So this summer I have reached all time lows for my television watching. I never used to get into the reality shows. I have never watch a full episode of Survivor or American Idol. And maybe it is because I was sick for so long and had nothing to do but watch bad TV for weeks on end. Or maybe there is nothing else on to watch. Or maybe my standards have suddenly lowered. Whatever the case might be, I am full on addicted to (oh I am so blushing now even admitting this) Big Brother 8 and The Hills. I didn't watch Big Brother 1-7 and didn't watch Laguna Beach. But it has not stopped me from watching with baited breath each week this summer.

I was totally upset when they didn't send Dick home two weeks ago. If I have to see Amber cry one more time while talking about her visions from God I might scream (softly though because believe it or not my voice is not yet fully restored- which on a side note- is getting very very annoying!). I love Eric and Jessica- though I am not convinced that Eric isn't gay. Which only matters because she seems to have a crush on him. Oh the drama.... It is trashy TV at it's finest. It is like watching a live soap opera where people stab each other in the back right and left and profess their love to others and cry and quote bible verses and call themselves "evil."

I think Lauren Conrad is adorable and Heidi is crazy. And Big Head Spencer is just nasty- he makes my skin crawl. I really love Whitney and wish she had more air time. She cracks me up and is sweet as can be. They keep claiming that Heidi changed after meeting Spencer but I am not convinced of that. I am pretty sure she is just one of those girls who will do anything it takes to keep her guy and is very blinded in the process. I know girlfriends like that. Well except that mine don't have fake boobs, all have degrees and work and live normal lives. So scratch that, I guess I don't have friends who are all that akin to Miss Heidi. Ew...I just thought about Spencer again....he is just so foul! He reminds me of a young Donald Trump wanna be. The only thing worse than being the man himself is a snaky-wanna-be. Something I really like about the show is that Lauren and Whitney are in school (well Whit just graduated) and working as interns. Oh they have fancy lives with flashy cars and sparkly outfits and jewelry and shoes for sure. But it is nice to see that they also have goals beyond club hopping. Though that is in there plenty too.

My former favorite shows were The West Wing and Gilmore Girls. But they left me and this is what I have found to fill the weeknight TV void. My brain is turning to mush! I hope they bring back October Road. Oh and I love love Project Runway!! Thank goodness Grey's and Betty will be returning soon. I miss them! Somebody watches way too much TV I think....

I have been trying to give up tv for years now. Now my tv watching is at an all time high. This summer alone I am addicted to Damages, BB8 and The Hills. Oh and I have a new found love for General Hospital. I'm in big trouble come fall with the return of Grey's and Ugly Betty.

I just started watching The Hills, too. I still miss my Gilmore Girls, but in the summer sometimes you just need a trashy tv show!

Oh I commented to my mom while in Bar Harbor that the town square was so Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls... I miss that show too. Though I totally fell off the wagon the last season or too so I don't even know what happened in the end.

Hey Preppy Pink Crocodile - It's Stacy (lauren's friend from NC)...love your blog! I found it when I googled "pink crocodile" looking for your wares. :)

Hope all is well with you. Love your stuff! I'm toying with the idea of opening a biz in Charlotte, and may contact you to carry some of your stuff - if I can find the financing to make my dreams come true. Details, details. :)
