And you thought I had a "problem".....

My three year old just asked for red wine. I kid you not. The conversation went like this:

3: Can I have some red wine?
Bea: You want a glass of red wine?
3: Yes, red wine.
Bea: Red wine?
3: Yes, I want a piece of toast.

So I move in to the kitchen to fix Breakfast #2 for Her Royal Highness when the five year old comes in and helps herself to a slice of bread.

5: Can you put butter on this?
Bea: Sure.
5: Wait. Do we have jelly?
Bea checks and confirms that there is in fact jelly in the fridge and proceeds to open said jelly.
5: Ok, I'll just have butter.
Bea: But....jelly....yes.
5: Well, I was thinking jelly sandwuch so I'll just have butter.

While I was beating my head against the wall I spotted my reflection. Two new grey hairs. Surprised?

Watch Reality TV? Who? Me?

Yes, I like me some reality TV. I helped a friend with her audition tape for The Real World, back in the day. I've got more reality television set up on Season Pass on my DVR than any other type of programming. I've played Fantasy Survivor. I've seriously considered setting up one of those nifty ticker things in my message board signature counting down the days to the much anticipated premier of Big Brother.

With that being said, I have to call attention to the fact that I do not love all reality television. American Idol makes my skin crawl (yes, go ahead and gasp...it's true!) and I could never get into the Amazing Race, although Damn! that would be a fun one to participate in. The Biggest Loser? Not for me, not even for a second. I did attempt to watch the trainwreck that is Skating with the Stars but it was painful and I won't be back. Probably.

I'm going to stop now....I sound like an addict trying to work her way out of an intervention.

Love it!

Blame it on my sick sense of humor or the work that I do, or both. I don't care. I just love this t-shirt. It's almost worth having another baby for.

Buy this at glarkware.

Yes, I did read a whole lot of Nancy Drew when I was younger.

I'm not sure what to think of this but I have to admit that I'm a little caught up in the whole thing. Nothing like a good online diversion to keep me from getting my work done.
