Snow Day #2... and daytime TV still sucks.

Quick notes from a fairly boring day...

1. I slept through the Today show this morning. You know how sometimes, when you sleep with the TV on, the people on TV are in your dreams? And now, you know where this is leading. My dream was a nightmare. Katie Couric and her freaky lip-linered lips were chasing me, and hollering something about the president. I woke up in a cold sweat... and changed the channel immediately.

2.Jonathan of Bravo's Blow Out is a pyscho. Why does this guy have his own TV show? "I live for hair." That's his motto. And he's straight. With a SUPER-SIZED ego. Ick. Non-stop commercials for this guy today. Double ICK.

3. I've been suckered into watching Celebrity Poker Showdown. I like playing Texas Hold'Em, but I don't care to watch the World Poker Tour or anything else remotely poker-ish on TV. But the TV has been stuck on Bravo (for some reason I can't explain), and I'm doing laundry. If I change the channel to some movie On Demand, I'll stop doing laundry. I'm just weird like that. So, poker it is.

Celebrity Poker cast today (it's a repeat): Wanda Sykes, Travis Tritt, Rosario Dawson, Jerome "The Bus" Bettis, and Mena Suvari. Wanda Sykes is hilarious as usual. Mena Suvari looks like a china doll. How do I get skin like that?!?!?


Oh, my good GOD. The hottie server girl that usually delivers the drinks to the celeb poker table.... just turned into a hottie guy. Wow. Wanda Sykes just lost all focus. He is wearing skin tight leather pants just below the hip bone. Oh my. At this point, I turn the channel over until the hottie guy is gone. (not really, I just said that for the Farm Boy's benefit... in case he's reading this).

4. Okay, enough of this. I have a load of jeans in the washer, and the girls are clamoring to get out of the house for a little while. Hopefully, my loser cruiser can make it through all the snow, so we can venture out for a bit of lunch. I plan on taking the camera with me to capture all the lovely snow sights along the way.

those poker shows can be strangely addictive. too often i have found myself watching one into the wee hours of the morning. really not healthy.

I had this discussion the other day, am I the only one who loves Jonathan? I can't help it. I'm drawn to ego maniacs who cry a lot.

And I will watch any poker show. I'm trying to improve my game. That's not working out so well for me. I've lost much more than I care to admit playing online.

Katie Couric scares me! She's all Princess Perky Nose then she turns. No wonder you had nightmares.

I watched Jonathan's new premiere last night. That guy is a pompous jerk. And I love it.

YES, and that reminds me I need to post about it. All I can say is HORRIFYING.
