Ah yes … let us get back to the snark, shall we?? Just to cleanse the palate from the woo-woo week, you know – like sorbet.
First stop – Wife Swap
(Quoting poster Qudgeon over at TWOP and with whom I cannot agree more)
And, why the hell do couples even go on that show if they are not going to participate?! It’s ONE WEEK you freaks. You can live with it for one frickin’ week. Candy for one week won’t kill your children and living by someone else’s rules won’t kill you for ONE WEEK. And, if you think that it will, or you’re just too closed-minded, stupid and STUBBORN, then don’t go on the show. Do people want to be on TV that fucking bad? But then, I’m watching this bullshit, so maybe I’m the idiot.
Indeed. This show is the same thing, week after week. I don’t know why I watch it. But I can’t help myself. Hi. My name is Lisa and I compulsively watch stupid shit on tv.
Next stop – gossip blogs
Some days, when the weight of the political world gets me down and I can’t read one. more. diary. about how we are going to hell in a handbasket, I turn to my gossip blogs. I really give less than half a shit about Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, TomKat, Brangelina, Britney and K-Fed and the rest. I admit that sometimes, I don’t even know who they are talking about! How out of touch is that? (shakes head sadly, remembering when she know who everyone was) And tell me again why these people are even worth knowing about?? But I admit that I read my gossip blogs every single day. It takes me out of my head and I can laugh at their foibles (Is BritBrit pregnant again? Is Katie Holmes now a zombie scientologist, why won’t Nicole Richie just eat a sandwich??) and know that, unlike the war in Iraq, no one will be killed as a result of their (stupid) decisions. Well, I do worry a tad about Sean Preston because he’s less than a year old and Brit has been spotted doing some stupid shit with and to him. And I mean, come on. His father is freaking Kevin “professional golddigger” Federline. That alone is enough to put you into counseling for life! :)
Here are a couple recommendations for gossip blogs:
Any other suggestions for excellent celebrity snarkage?
Well, I suppose I should drag myself back out to the yard and continue scooping crap up to add to the burning pile of wood and yuck we have going (in a trashcan specially created for that purpose courtesy of Neighbor Greg). Actually, it’s rather a meditation of sorts for me to pick up branches and stuff and burn them. I am worried that I will run into a snake or two, though! eeeek!
