Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

What the HELL

It has been a thoroughly craptastic week so far, which I attribute in part to the huge letdown from Manic Sunday. But seriously! You know how sometimes you're like, OK, I'm going to have an AWESOME week? And then it's like the world starts conspiring against you to make sure it's anything BUT awesome? WHY DOES THAT HAPPEN? It's like the Murphy's Law of life and I think it SUCKS.

Hey, I just thought of something. What would The Secret lady say to THAT, I wonder? Huh? I am putting a LOT of good stuff out into the world, so WHAT THE HELL?!?!

Oh, well. I'll just do what I always do, which is to say, "Well, the good stuff just took a wrong turn, but it's coming for me" and then eat some chocolate and go to bed and hope tomorrow's less craptastic.

I'm going to totally change the subject now. Have you seen Scott Baio is 45 and Single? I find that show strangely, strangely compelling. And thanks to VH1 and its magical rotating schedule, I've seen it (or at least parts of it) like three times this week.

So the obvious appeal is that I had a little crush on Scott Baio when he was on Charles in Charge. But the rest of it ... I'm not sure, because he comes off as kind of an immature ass. But then again, he's sort of amusingly self-deprecating, too. And then there's the random stuff. Like, when did he become BFF with the big brother from Wonder Years? Has he gotten Botox, or just aged well? And of course, my favorite: Does he really, as Erin Moran revealed, have a small penis?

These are the things, my friends, that will keep me tuning in.

My other summer guilty pleasure is the World Series of Pop Culture. Obviously. Oh, and Kathy Griffin. What's yours?

As you know, Rock of Love is my guilty pleasure right now. Those girls scare me and yet are entertaining.

I watched the beginning of the Scott Baio thing but I went to bed because I could not stay up that late with baby and all. Speaking of baby rumor has it Scott Baio's girlfriend is pregnant.

I love the World Series of Pop Culture. I am pretty good at the show but not geek level. I wouldn't win.

I also like So You Think You Can Dance.

Kathy Griffin is my girl - LOVE HER! She always (well mostly) manages to stay just on the right side of the funny-but-not-pitiful line; not an easy thing to do! She makes me happy...I would love to meet her someday :)

And I'm having a belated giggle about BEING BOBBY BROWN thanks to a friend of mine who quotes Ms. Whitney saying, "Hell-to-the-no!" on a regular basis.

Ugh, I can't stand Kathy Griffin!!! Those commercials bug the hell out of me.

My guilty pleasure is Top Chef. Goofy, I know. But I also set tivo up to record a show on some cable channel with Holly Hunter who looks like she's a badass detective of some sort. I think the first episode is this week or something.

and by commercials, i mean the ones promoting KG's show... just in case that wasn't clear. ;)

Scott Baio seems creepy to me. I have no idea why. I didn't see the show, though.

my summer secret pleasures.. well I watch lots of shows on the USA network... Sci/Fi type stuff.

I know, weird. LOL

swish, i have a present for you on my blog...

here's what i read about the scott show: he confesses that his penis (i can say that here, right?) is tiny.

~trying to scrub brain~

I will read your blog daily as you search for the answer to your questions. Well, I'll read your blog daily anyway.

I was tempted to watch the show, but I didn't. My guilty pleasure is probably my computer. Just not getting into much in the way of TV.

OH! I did watch the Victoria Beckham thing on TV the other night. Not sure why because I really could care less about she and David - even though he's awfully hunky. And I don't particularly like reality shows. But I have to admit I enjoyed it. So there's my guilty pleasure!

I'm into Big Brother. I just can't stay away from the drama. It's on tonight and another house guest goes home!

At 2:07 PM, Blogger XYZinn said...

I love all of those shows! Isn't it weird how Scott Baio has the exact same hair as he did when he was on Charles in Charge? And what is up with wearing the chains still? That is so tacky.
As you know, Big Brother is my guilty pleasure and eating cookie dough.

I really disliked Kathy Griffin until about a week ago. Now I want to be best friends. She's like this tiny little hurricane! Also, I'm totally into Top Chef and sometimes World Series of Pop Culture, but I have to fast forward through most of it to get to the questions because I don't really care about who they are and why they are what they are and crap.

At 2:18 PM, Blogger XYZinn said...

Oh, also, Scott Baio totally seems like he would have a small penis. I don't know why.

Scott Baio is an asshole. So he has a small penis -- deal with it, pinky.

About the third time he was crying about things coming easy to him because of his fame and how he was never forced to grow up because of it...cry, cry -- come here so I can punch you in the face. It's not the fame -- it's because you are an infant and at 45 it's really gross.

What does it say about me that I'm going to watch it again?

"Don't call me Chachi, I'll punch things" -- reminds me of every serious pot smoker I've ever met. Don't ask me why, but lots of pot seems to make people take themselves too seriously (Woody Harrelson).

I knew this one guy named Joe who went mental if you called him "Joe Blow Sachmo Homo" -- a nickname which must have come of a serious bong session because, pot head observation #2. they like to rhyme things and then repeat it over and over (Snoop Dog).

Wow, didn't know I was so bitter about pot smokers or Scott Baio -- thanks for letting me get that off my chest Swishy.

I totally want to see that show now. I saw him interviewed on some show the other day. Joanie looks like hell, does she? So that's maybe why she's saying he had a small winkie... Ha, get it a dinky winkie!

I have had a crappy week too. I am sure it was cuz we were together Sunday...

Mine is Big Brother, yeah, thats all I can say about that ;)

At 7:14 PM, Blogger YakYak Face said...

Thanks to a friend turning me onto Manic, she has now turned me onto you :) You both remind me that crazy is in the eye of the beholder and personally, crazy is a hell of a lot of fun!
Anyway...had to post as I saw Scott Baio is 45 and Single for the first time last night and I also found myself completely intrigued by the show! And like you, LOVED him in Charles in Charge. I also went to bed last night wondering if he in fact has a small penis.
And to answer the question, my other faves include any CSI and I am ashamed to say American Idol...total addict

I soooo love that show. I'm using it as my own personal life coach. Sorta. I mean, I'm not going to track down (read: stalk) old flames, but it does spark some memories of what I did or didn't do right. So - free therapy is a good thing.

My other guilty pleasure is the Rock of Love show. Tramps and trollops. I'm hoping those are the dregs of our gender. Because, if they are not, women are in trouble.

I hope your week has made a turnaround by now. Just keep thinking happy thoughts. And eating chocolate.

I'm SO glad you wrote about the Scott Baio show! I just watched that episode and I like it. And serioulsy, I don't think he's had Botox. I really think he's aged well. I can't wait to see him confront all the skanks he's been with!

I also love Rock of Love. Although, like Baio, Bret Michaels is just in it for some pottie tang.

I'm a huge Big Brother fan. Plus just got addicted to Top Chef. And LURVE Kathy Griffin's show.

But the bestest? Paula Abdul's trainwreck of a show on Bravo. It. Is. Awesome.

At 12:15 AM, Blogger Swishy said...

I am totally crushed because the World Series of Pop Culture ENDED tonight, and I thought there was one more week! BOOO!

OK, so Scott Baio. Kim, you CRACKED ME UP! He is TOTALLY an infant. And the pot smoker thing is SO TRUE! I don't think there's any doubt he's tiny, either. He doesn't even deny it.

I watched Big Brother tonight! That guy Joe is PSYCHO!

*****Factiod alert****

Why Scott Baio really hates being called Chachi.

I did a curiosity google to see if mr. baio really does have pot issues, well, I gave up before I found any answers to the query, BUT -- I did find out that Chachi means PENIS in Korean.

At 5:51 PM, Blogger Swishy said...

HA HA HA ... it reminds him of what he doesn't have!

At 8:24 PM, Blogger Jenster said...

I can't believe I'm sitting here watching the Scott Baio thing! What's happening to me? First Victoria Beckham and now Scott Baio. I thought I was above all this.

I'm getting some ice cream now. To hell with my Weight Watchrs!

At 8:15 AM, Blogger Mary Ann said...

I am addicted to So You Think You Can Dance and by the end of each show am saying, "I could do that."

Only problem is I've now convinced my sweetie and he's looking for dance classes for us. Actual classes. With other people. And mirrors. Gawwwwwwwd.
