Embarrassing admission

I'm coming right out and admitting it:

I've been watching The Bachelorette on TV. I look forward to it each week.

It's a show that may very well represent everything that's wrong with 21st century entertainment. At the very least, it's diminishing my brain cell count by the minute.

But it appeals to the romantic in me (and I don't mind laughing at it--and at myself watching it--too.)

So, 'fess up. Any ridiculous time wasting activities in your life right now?

I'm right there with you, sister. I haven't had a chance to watch this week's epi yet, but, don't you worry, I will *find* the time.

The kids and I have been loving Cupcake Wars.

Totally addicted to bubble burst on my phone. I am convinced I can beat the higest score ever posted.

Please tell me you saw my posting on my fan page on FB Monday night- when I had turned on the TV and not paid attention to the channel. It was a distraction from dealing with the gross overflowing toilet situation. And I ended up deciding that the overflowing toilet was less painful than watching The Bachelorette.

I think the point were I really groaned and rolled my eyes was when one dude, on his little post-date interview- said "rememberable." Oy.

In addition to a bit of reality tv (Next Food Network Star and Design Star are interesting choice for me because I never watch shows from the "winners"), I spend far too much time during the day playing Spider Solitaire at work. It's practically prehistoric but I find it addictive.

This is the first season I have not watched. But I'm such a reality show junkie ;)

I've been sucked into The Bachelorette as well. My husband comes in when I am watching, shakes his head, and leaves the room.

I like to consider myself a well educated person. I enjoy the fine things in life like classical music, art museums, and fancy food.

But man...don't get between my and my Kardashians!! Blood will spill.

Omgoodness. Too many time (and brain) suckers to count....

Young & the Restless (25 years and counting)
The Bachelorette
America's Next Top Model
(I'm convinced TiVo is to blame)

Twilight anything
Miley anything
Twitter/Facebook
Polyvore.com - don't visit if you've never been yet!

All these help get me out of bed at 5AM to run. If I pound the pavement each morning, I feel much less guilty! =)

Niiice. I was really into the show in seasons past, but I just can't stomach it anymore. My guilty pleasure is the Real Housewives series. Trash. Y.

Ok. This month has just been a ridiculous mash up of time wasters for me! World Cup and Wimbledon are the main offenders right now, but I think those are normal.

Next Food Network Star and So You Think You Can Dance are the two guilty pleasures.

And as for the biggest time wasting website, there's a game on NinjaKiwi.com called Bloons Tower Defense 4. You place moneys with darts and pop balloons that wind through the track. hahaha.

I've been watching it too. It totally hooks you in with all of the man drama and romance. Not knowing who she will pick and all. It's been good. I can't stand the thought of the show and how they hardly ever stay together after, but I'm watching anyway.

It is kinda like when I am tired from standing with bad ankles so I don't work out, I watch others work out and get beat up by Jillian. LOL

Oh yes...i can TOTALLY relate to this. The Bachelor/Bachelorette. *sigh* I love it, but I hate it. After every season I SWEAR I won't watch the next season, but I do. It's like a train wreck...I just can't look away!

Jayne said...

Ahh...yes...cooking shows are a time waster for me. Especially since I know I won't actually make any of those things. But I watch it, everytime.

And then there's Facebook, and Words with Friends, and.....
