Today is a better day. Sometimes you just hope it will be and then it isn't. But today really is. It didn't hurt that I got to turn off my brain last night and watch mindless reality television for several hours.
First, I watched Dick win Big Brother. I personally would have voted for Danielle. But whatever. At least it wasn't Zach. Or Amber. But that's okay because Amber's going on America's Next Top Model anyway. Although she apparently missed the tryouts for the new season because I watched the season premier for that last night too. I couldn't tell much from the first episode except that they've got this season's mean girl all picked out. And maybe an underdog or two. I can't decide who I'm rooting for yet. Someone needs to tell Tyra to reign it in though. She continues to be under the impression that the show is about her. Her song and dance number wasn't cute. I hope no one told her it was. It was bad. And annoying. And the amount of makeup she wears seems to increase exponentially with every season.
Finally, last night was the season premiere of Survivor. I will forever consider that a personal favor from the universe to give me a little pick me up. Because I love Survivor. Not in a "I wish I could go on the show" kind of way. Because I'm both lazy and prone to complaining if the temperature goes above 72 degrees while I'm sleeping. My love for the show is more along the lines of "I wish I could send my husband on the show with detailed instructions and play Monday morning quarterback from the comfort of my pillow top bed." So far I like the grave digger. Although he's quiet so I figure he's screwed. I also like the Asian jewelry designer. Although she doesn't have bossy radar and seems unaware she's rubbing people wrong. But that's okay because the WWE wrestler is way more annoying. I feel confident her and her low cut top will get voted out soon. Hopefully the bleach blonde New York waitress stays forever though. Because, seriously, rolling your eyes at a Buddhist monk the first five minutes of the show tells me you're one to watch, girlfriend.
