“Reality TV”, in general, is something that I am so tired of that it’s just ridiculous! I hardly watch the big networks anymore because of this programming. I can’t believe that there are so many people out there willing to make asses of themselves in front of television cameras for the public’s entertainment just to get their fifteen minutes of fame. It’s time to give all of these shows a time out and bring back good programming.
Bad drivers in general need a time out (or perhaps just a refresher driving course). Unfortunately, there are so many of them that the streets would be practically empty if we enforced that. Then again, not such a bad idea…….. The number of drivers who never signal their turns/lane changes, never stop for a cross-walk, don’t know what a side mirror is used for, have no concept of right-of-way, can’t park straight to save their lives and many other daily offences is just staggering.
William and Kate need a time out too; not because I don’t like them cuz let’s face it, they are adorable! They are a beautiful couple who had a beautiful wedding and have now made a beautiful baby together. They now need a time out for THEIR sake. Being new parents is tough on any couple, with people hovering over you, ready with their advice and, yes, criticism. Imagine how tough being a new parent would be living under the microscope of public opinion like they do! So, now that the baby is here and everyone is happy, how about we leave them alone for a bit.
I have given Candy Crush a time out. As a matter of fact, I completely removed it from my Facebook profile. That game was the biggest time-suck I have encountered in a while. There was one level that I was stuck on for so long that it actually had me totally stressed out! I kept going back to it over and over again until I finally beat that sucker. The next time that I got that stuck, I decided that an intervention was needed. You wouldn’t believe my anxiety level when my mouse hovered over that delete button but the relief afterward was reward in itself. Of course now, thanks to my kids’ stepmom, I have discovered Words of Wonder. It begins again……..
Last of all, I am taking a time out. It's been a busy summer with two soccer schedules and work so there's been a lot of running around. Soccer ends this weekend and I am on week one of my two week vacation so I'm ending the summer in a quiet way. I'm going to catch up on some housework that has been ignored (you should see the dust bunnies in this place; scary!!) and do some reading. We may even catch a movie. I'm going to use this time out as a time to recharge my batteries calm my mind so that I can go back to work and get the kids back to school refreshed and ready to tackle the world.... at least my corner of it.
I'm glad I didn't have anything in my mouth, because I would have probably spit it out with the K-dash sex tape part. :-) Aly is going to be in the Little Miss Italy pageant this weekend and the "Dance Moms" are the judges and we got this email that says "We know you're excited, but don't try and talk to them. There will be a meet and greet afterwards." yadda ya. I'm all like, "I don't give a crap." Reality tv is horrible.ReplyDelete
I don't even know who "Dance Moms" are so they wouldn't have worry about me stalking them, lol!Delete
I too give Candy Crush a time out!ReplyDelete
You may want to stay away from Words of Wonder...... fair warning.....Delete
Great list. Enjoy your timeout. It s a much deserved mommy break.ReplyDelete
Yep, that's one time out that I can really get into ;)Delete
I hate pretty much all reality tv, and I am proud to say (not only because I don't have cable or satellite) I have never watched an episode of the Kardashians.ReplyDelete
And I'm hopelessly addicted to Candy Crush. Put ME in a time out and let me crush some candy!
I'm convinced that reality tv sucks out brain cells! Maybe that's the fuel that keeps them going....Delete
I had to break the the Candy Crush addiction; it was stressing me out too much! Yeah, I'm a sad case ;)
Amen on the Kardashians! I really need a Candy Crush intervention one of these days.....ReplyDelete
Yep, it seems that Candy Crush support groups are needed, lol!Delete
I so agree about the Kardashians and bad drivers. I literally have stayed away from facebook for a couple of days because of Candy Crush. I'm stuck on like level 59 and it's getting out of hand if I'm shouting obscene words to the computer. lolReplyDelete
LOL, I know, I turned the air blue around here a few too many times. Aren't these things supposed to be relaxing? Geez.......Delete
The K's have definitely surpassed their fifteen minutes of fame
I just love that you're giving William and Kate a time out. Totally made me laugh...it's true though. We've heard about enough of the royal family for awhile I think!ReplyDelete
They SO need a break and, you're right, we all had our fill of royal news to last us a while. Thanks for stopping by :)Delete
I may have to give myself a time out from Candy Crush .. what was I thinking?ReplyDelete
I know! It was addictive and maddening all at the same time.....Delete
