I Want A New Drug!

I totally get Huey Lewis right now. Mostly because I need a new addiction. Something besides my dog and my bed and my car.

Is there rehab for excessive sleeping and disproportionate amounts of driving your children around? Is there a twelve-step program for extreme smiling while walking your dog? I think I need intervention because my cheeks haven't been this sore since my wedding reception.

When I asked my daughter these questions she handed me her Personal Progress book.

"If it's rehab you need, this book will change your life," she said. "But for us normal peeps, who already walk the straight and narrow while holding to the iron rod, it's a real snooze fest."

She's a corker, that one.

Anyways, lately I've been thinking I have way too much love in my heart. For my dog. And my bed. And my kids. I need to temper that love with something . . . I don't know . . . more productive maybe? Like flossing my teeth. Or scrubbing my toilets.

Or maybe I need to do something less productive. Like go inactive. But just between me and you, I can't stomach the thought of the whole ward council discussing ways to reactive me during their meetings, so I've decided on plan B--to watch more reality t.v.

I've made a list of t.v. shows I'm pretty sure I can get hooked on if I try hard enough:

  1. The Glee Project
  2. Project Runway
  3. Celebrity Rehab
  4. Love in the Wild
  5. The Bachelorette

I'm still on the fence about Finding Bigfoot because can squatches really whistle, knock on trees, and have human conversations with each other as they tromp through the forrest?

I. think. not.

So back to my new drug of choice--reality t.v. I'm totally open. To suggestions. So please advise.


P.S. Sandi, has Kute Kasey had that gosh darn baby yet?

Personally I'm dislike-ing the Reality TV right now ... maybe it;s just Glee Project.. i hope none of them win! I like to watch things like Men of a certain age.. or Covert Affairs.. and pretend that It's real life.....

I think Im absolutely bored with my life too.. but guess what.. i dont want the boredness to ever end.. i dont want to be busy and feel wanted.. but dont tell my husband that..because he thinks Im busy looking for a job.

I miss your cabin,.. even though i've never been there.. and i think martha 's right about the magic flowers.. dont get rid of the dried flowers.. just those hideous baskets they are sitting in..

so as far as a new drug..... I think im actualy for the whole, find bigfoot thing... i heard he was spotted up by Laie Falls.. you can start there , we'll meet you there in a week or so! :)

Sandi said...

Still no baby- can ya believe it?
I'm not a big fan of reality--TV or otherwise. ha ha. At the moment I am hooked on Army Wives, it's totally a soap opera and I cry every single time I watch it so I don't know why I like it so much. But I do :)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha ha You girls crack me up.

CAN'T believe there is still no baby. How much longer will you be there. Sandi? Is there at least an induction date?

Army Wives makes you cry. hmmm. Never seen it so I'll have to check it out and see if it can penetrate my stone cold heart.

Iwa, LOL! I'll totally meet you at Laie Falls next week. We can whistle and knock on trees and do the loud squatchy calls.

I'm homesick all of a sudden.

Tonight we're feeding 30 old friends from the hood at the magic cabin.

Hmmm . . . not sure how I feel about keeping the dried flowers. Nope, I'm going to toss them.

Martha said...

Josh called me yesterday and I asked him if he was going to your big party and he said he wasn't invited yet.

On that note we are invited over to Swirls house for dinner tonight because her hub is out of town and she's bored. Perry has been tossing his cookies all night and I don't think he'll be attending either so I suggested to Swirl that we invite Sandi and she's all for it.

So Sandi come tonight to the old hood or townhouse 9A. We'll show you where Crash used to hang.

This summer I became addicted to House MD. I started with season 1 episode 1 and am now on season 7. I am almost as good as Al, cuz I can diagnose lots of stuff. Perry just barely tolerates it, so he'll be happy when I am done. I'm thinking of watching 24 next because you guys thought it was so great.

Melanie Jacobson said...

I was going to say Project Runway, but obviously, you are already a woman of good taste and discernment.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Martha, we texted him and he almost came, but he had other plans. The dude is POP-U-LAR. Wicked Pop-u-lar.

Get it? Wicked Pop-U-Lar?

Ah, sometimes I crack myself up.

I was probably good he didn't come. Just sayin. For his sake, not ours, of course. How was dinner with Sandi and Swirl. Wow. What a crazy thought. Sandi and Swirl. Did you show Sandi my old bragging grounds?

Melanie, LOVE Project Runway. And love love love Project Runway marathons.

Sandi said...

check your facebook, I tagged you in a very cute photo :)

Anything but reality t.v.!!!!!!! I hate reality t.v. Okay lean in really really close to your computer while I whisper this little known secret about reality t.v. Everyone else just shut your eyes if you don't want to know the awful truth....... it's not really real. There. I said it. Not real. I know, I know, if you read this mistakenly reality probably came crashing down but better you learn it now than later when they do an expose on it. There are no decent reality shows.

Well..... except maybe Iron Chef America and Cupcake Wars, and ....

The Crash Test Dummy said...

WAAAAAAAHHHH! That photo made my eyeballs sweat for some weird reason.

Maybe because you guys are all so gosh darn kute.

Or maybe because I can't believe you're all standing together--Sandi, Swirl, Martha and Kute Kasey--in front of my house!

Or maybe because Kute Kasey hasn't had her baby yet.

Or maybe because SOMEONE IS STANDING INSIDE OF MY HOUSE! That's MY stinkin' house!!!!!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Robin, I can't believe you don't think it's REAL! I'm worried about your testimony of the truth.

(hee hee)

Aubrey Anne said...

It's not reality tv, but here's one for you: The Hunger Games. You're welcome.

wendy said...

Nahhh....keep the love for the dog, the bed, and the kids.
More rewarding.

I have been watching TONS of dance shows right now.
So You Think You Can Dance
So You Think You Can Dance Canada

It makes me feel thin when I watch them.

Mariko said...

I don't really like reality tv, unless that reality tv involved cooking.

MASTERCHEF. Watch it on Hulu. You just want to scream and jump around all with your eyes glued to the television. It's great. Plus you get really really hungry, especially if you are supposedly on a diet (that gets broken every 15 minutes) like me.
It's also not so awful, in terms of drama. I mean, they're mean to each other, but it's human forgivable, instead of downright disgusting.

kasey said...

I'm pretty sure it's because we are so darn cute! We got the tour of the yard, the neighborhood and your front porch(mulch and rocks included) I can only imagine the good times that were had when you all 3 lived there together...
p.s. Kasey says watch Swamp People
p.p.s. This is Sandi :)
