An open letter to TLC

Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Dear Programming Geniuses at TLC/Discovery,
I have to say, I am really relieved that Stacy and Clinton are back on the air. Even if it has to be on Tuesdays. I was really getting worried there, guys. Several months with no What Not to Wear? Do you know how many Friday nights and Saturday mornings I wasted at the gym, hooked up to a bloody rat-on-a-wheel machine with a TV attached to it so I could watch the show without actually paying for cable?
But no. No WNtW. Only episode after episode of mind-numbing Say Yes to the Dress.
Honest to god, even now that I'm justified in looking at wedding dresses because I'm in the market for one, I still can't think of anything more boring than watching girls I don't know try on wedding dresses on the telly. Except maybe watching rich housewives throw parties. Boooooring.
Please, at least, diversify a bit. Toss in a few other tv shows on Friday nights? Maybe some Child Abuse and Sparkles, er, Toddlers and Tiaras. Or that show about the people with 25 kids. Or that one with the guy with all the wives.

Yours, ever grateful that I don't actually pay for this crap,
ps - see you on Tuesday.

Sometimes (ALL THE TIME) I go too long between haircuts. When I finally sit down in my stylist's chair, I almost always tell her that I feel like I look like David Cassidy.

I'm not sure that she, or probably most people I talk to on a daily basis, for that matter, know who I mean.

FYI, this is who I am referencing. This is basically what I see in the mirror roughly 6 weeks after every hair cut.

Minus the bangs. My head is way too round for bangs like that.

Also, in alarming news, my brother often has the very same hairdo.
