Today's post comes from my buddy Sarah, from Let's Eat some Candy. I love her because she's a wierd-beard. And because she knows I love calling friends wierd-beards.
Hey! Shannon! Thanks for having me visit while you’re having a Blinky baby.
Hello new blog friends! Shannon asked me to come up with something fun to entertain y’all while she has the little one. Although my bud Shan and I share a VERY similar sense of humor, my taste in just about everything else couldn’t be farther from hers…let me rephrase that- she has a great sense of décor, a refined taste with clean lines, smart pattern pairings and can do it all on a dime.
The girl is motivated. I’m lazy. I suffer from decorating ADD. And, let’s not forget my post-college diva’s lair furnished with everything and anything either purple, red or leopard I could find. I’ve come to a conclusion that my sense of style is more of a sickness since at the ripe old age of 30 I STILL cannot part with my fuzzy leopard folding chair and my 5” leopard heels.
While I was thinking about a topic- the TV was on in the background. We were flipping between the Phillies getting slaughtered by LA and some junk on the History Channel. I noticed all of the commercials for upcoming reality shows in the fall.
The first one I saw was Cupcake Wars. OK- sure there’s a TV show already for not one cake show, but two…but technically, cup cakes are a little different and they’re focusing on cup cake staging and design and it’s more of a competition and less of a follow-around-wacky-bakers-with-a-camera…so sure! Let’s have a new show.
Then…I saw a commercial for Spike’s Scrappers- a joint about some dudes straight outta Brooklyn (whose van is SPRAY PAINTED with the word SCRAPPER on the side- way to break the budget, Spike!) who troll around searching for scrap metal to sell in the Bronx. Ehh…probably NOT going to watch this, but hey, it’s interesting enough, I suppose.
Then…House Wives of DC… seriously Salahis? Beat it.
So the wheels started spinning- just how many reality TV shows are there that I’m (gratefully) missing?
Here are a few lists to get you started:
How did I miss Liza and David, btw?
Can’t wait to writhe in self-loathing by checking out I HATE my 30s!
Nice new weave, Jackie!
Hows about the Discovery Channel?
Which one of these things don’t belong here? is playing in my head as I peruse this list… Life. The Ultimate Car Build-Off. Man vs. Wild…and CASH CAB!? How does that fit?
It makes me want to pitch a new show to someone, anyone to break the cycle I’m in and get rich. Seriously, if Brat Camp or Can You Duet? can make the cut- or the show that started it all Cops is on it’s 2,220 episode, I think I can come up with something.
...I’m just not sure anyone is going to want to watch my show Delusions of Grandeur while I try to make a full time living as a yogaVlogger with a crappy webcam and lackluster editing skills...or a show about a leopard print collector- but now that I think of it, there’s already a show for that- and I’m pretty sure it’s called Hoarders. Eeeek!
