Blog Roll

I thank my lucky, second-generation Darren stars every night that no matter what happens in my life...

There will always be reality TV!!

Nothing makes me feel more normal than a good reality show.

And Reality TV can make me forget just about anything...

...well except for that time when I forgot that I had one tampon in and put another one in by mistake.

...Aaaaand since this information may or may not be relevant in a future sanity hearing we'll not speak of it again. K?

Now back to reality!

I’m writing a thank you letter as we speak to whoever put "Mobbed" on Fox.

I'm telling you my fantasy show has come to life!

Although in my fantasy, I’d be on roller skates.

Ahhhh....roller skating...

Disco lights.....

Couples only.....

Sorry, slipped into a memory coma for a moment.

Not even a mobb of giant, bug-eyed, green Sleestak could get this Eighties girl to jump her ass over the pillon into this era.

My memories are happy and in tact just where they are thank you very much.

These days, I'm a little less hair spray and my eyebrows have thankfully carved a nice intersection for themselves but I can still roll with the best of 'em!

In my mind..

Scary to think that uni-brows and big hair never really die in spirit.

HA! And that Magic Eraser thought it could kill anything!

So, in my dreams, I want to do Mobbed...on skates!

I’ve been trying to talk my husband into it since last week...

“Honey let’s go on that new show Mobbed!”

“Why the hell for?”

“So we can do a surprise dance number to one unsuspecting person and…well... surprise them!”

“Surprise them and who about what?”

“Um, I didn’t think that far ahead... I’m not sure but wouldn’t it be fun?!”

“...I’m stained with excitement.”

I swear, it's like he's begging me to be the center of my dartboard. he needs to beg

Got a dream reality show?

Real life is enough reality for me.

Roller skating. THAT sounds like a plan. Let's combine that with some karaoke and what do you have?

Heck if I know.

Glee Rink?

I saw Mobbed once. Poor girl got engaged and Married in an ill fitted wedding dress all in one show. My wife was horrified. "I'd Nevah!!" LOL

I like Survivor and Big Brother. I see these people doing things and wonder if their families even recognize them and if they will have a job when they get home.

Other than that I like Wipeout.

Let me know when you are on. I wanna see the Disco girl. That was my era too.

I want to punch Howie Mandel in the vagina.

Jayne Martin on April 11, 2011 at 9:12 AM said...

Haven't seen "Mobbed." I like "Pit Boss" on Animal Planet where all those bad-assed little people save pit bulls. I want them to run for Congress because it would be nice to have some politicians with balls.

Other than that I dream of going shopping with Stacy and Clinton on "What Not To Wear" and I want Candace from "Design on a Dime" to redo my house.

Then I want you to come for cocktails. ;)

I always worried about inserting a second tampon. Can't believe you actually did it. OMG! That's not something you want to tell the grand kids. LOL!

"Mobbed" was kind of cool. I didn't know if the guy would get through the show without his girlfriend killing him. Can't believe they put the whole thing together in 48 hours. Yes, I cried.

I love the OCD shows: Hoarders and Extreme Couponing on The Learning Channel. Makes my obsessions seen charming. Also love Amazing Race and Survivor this year.

Linda Medrano on April 11, 2011 at 11:13 AM said...

I'm missing out. I was a world champ roller skater as a kid, whipping around corners at 100 mph. Okay, or that's how I saw myself. I need to watch "Mobbed". I'm bored with "Cheaters" and "To Catch a Predator". But "Cops" is still good! LOL!

Patty Punker on April 11, 2011 at 1:28 PM said...

i've put a second tampon in, i've put a tampon in the wrong hole, i've forgotten to remove my tampon during the nooky... they really out to put sensors on those things.

also, i could bust a move to kc and the sunshine band on the roller rink. like nobody's bizness. i'm sure everyone was watching.

I havent heard of Mobbed. I'll have to check it out.

I'd love to go on The Amazing Race. I think it would be SO much fun!

Cake Betch on April 12, 2011 at 1:41 PM said...

Hahahahaha I totally have done that with a tampon before. I forgot one once too. ICK. TMI? Nah.

Annie (Lady M) x on April 12, 2011 at 2:33 PM said...

Blimey, you want to do a reality show on roller skates? I have not heard anyone with that ambition before, which is what makes it intriguing!! Ya nutbag!

THE SNEE on April 12, 2011 at 2:46 PM said...

I have a weakness for musicals (blush). Therefore, it is pretty clear which reality shows I'm drawn to. Maybe your Mobbed Rollerskating show could also include a segment called Last Man Standing.Ten men, one menstruating woman and a box of tampons. Riveting. No?

Unknown on April 13, 2011 at 7:58 AM said...

My favorite reality shows are about bad parents, bad kids, extra large obese people, sloppy people, the mentally ill - basically anyone who has let their life go to shit. If I'm flipping through channels and I see a show about a pregnant woman, she better be either 12 or carrying her own grandpa, because if it's a story of love, commitment and surviving through adversity, sorry, I'm not interested.

Jen on April 13, 2011 at 2:14 PM said...

I took me until the post was nearly over before I knew what the show was about. I thought it was about getting trampled by a mob or having the mafia after you. And then the light bulb went off when you said dance. In other words, I don't watch enough tv to have a clue what you are talking about. Unless it's on the History Channel, then I know what's going on but there aren't any reality shows on the history channel for obvious reason, unless you count Pawn Stars or American Pickers or that horrible Larry the Cable guy show.

Sandra on April 13, 2011 at 3:51 PM said...

Ok, I'm on board with this reality show! As for the big hair and unibrow...what do you mean they're out? Nobody told me?

Robin on April 13, 2011 at 4:53 PM said...

You know which show I like...SYTYCD...and Im also watching DWTS..I know you hate that one...I dont think I would like to be on them though because my feet would really start to hurt with those high heels..other than that..I would like to see a blogging reality show and an artistic reality show..neither of which would hurt my feet.. I had big hair unibrow though..just big hair and lips, with red lipstick..or fucia...!

The Absence of Alternatives on April 13, 2011 at 5:03 PM said...

What is this show about? I want a reality show where someone comes and does something nice to me to surprise me. EVERY SINGLE EPISODE.

Ziva on April 14, 2011 at 12:36 PM said...

I have no idea what Mobbed is, but I'm pretty sure that doing anything more complicated than sitting still on a chair while on roller skates is just begging for hip replacement surgery. Now ICE skates, that's a completely different matter...

Ally on April 15, 2011 at 6:02 AM said...

I miss the 1980s days of roller skating. Life was simple then. Speaking of big hair and unibrows, have you seen those retro mall photos? I just backed that book project and feel so awesome about it :)

Ally on April 15, 2011 at 7:59 AM said...

Hi, I'm back - this is the link. I really hope people donate. I gave a whopping $35 due to my love of the 1980s and malls as a kid growing up on LI.

Blast from the Past on April 15, 2011 at 8:29 AM said...

Love SOME reality shows, can't believe anyone would watch others that I don't like... yeah - I'm a MY reality show SNOB!

Speed skated around Greenlake in Seattle in the '80s (before there were such things as in-line skates...)

Kinda thinking TMI on the tampon mishaps - is a guy not welcome here, or should I just look forward to such confessions and female mishap stories on a regular basis...?

Pearl on April 15, 2011 at 8:37 AM said...

If I could be on What Not to Wear I would be happy...


Captain Dumbass on April 16, 2011 at 8:53 AM said...

My reality show dream would involve all reality show contestants on a Jurassic Park style island with real dinosaurs.

Anonymous said...

I've never watched that show but I have a lonnnng list of reality shows I'm addicted to. They include (but aren't limited to) Celebrity Apprentice, America's Next Great Restaurant, Top Chef, American Idol, DWTS, and many more.

Why no, I don't have a life. What was your first clue?

Kristy @Loveandblasphemy on April 17, 2011 at 12:14 PM said...

LOVE reality TV. I am a reality TV junkie. But I would never want to be on one that is a contest. I simply could not be challenged with something difficult while being filmed. I would need to be on one in which there was lazing about and drinking, and then you get rich from it. That would be just right.

I feel like coming here, hacking into your site, and blogging anonymously on the reality show that my life is.

TOO CRAZY for my own site.

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Thanks so much to Lisa at (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
