Random Musings #1

I’ve spent the majority of the past two months awake and breastfeeding a restless newborn. The times I’ve been just too exhausted to read or do anything constructive (which has been almost all of the time) I’ve resorted to watching TV. A lot of it. And most of it has been reality tv, or “supposed” […]

On the Controversy in Kentucky

The entire Kentucky county clerk controversy continues to confound me. I feel like there must be some bigger part of the story that I am missing or clearly not understanding here, because it doesn’t seem that difficult to me. You believe whatever it is you believe, and based on that belief, you either continue to […]

More Like Divorced at First Sight…

Well that went downhill quickly! After finally catching up on all episodes of Married At First Sight Season 2, I’m surprised ( and yet, not so surprised) to learn that 0 for 3 couples have remained together. And that not only did they merely separate, but some of them ended badly. I’m a few weeks behind […]

The Two-Year Itch

I’m not sure just how radical an idea FYI network’s “social experiment” Married at First Sight truly is. Haven’t there been arranged marriages since the beginning of time? Which, to me, doesn’t even sound like all that crazy of an idea. This “experiment” should be even better than a traditional betrothal as it’s not simply a […]

Why I No Longer Watch “Teen Mom”

Well, other than the fact that I should not have been watching anyway as I am way beyond the intended age bracket. But I initially got hooked during the first season of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant  when I was in the midst of my own first pregnancy (but at the more socially acceptable age of 27). […]

What Bugs Me About these Reality TV “Exes”

Ugh, these shows.  I’m so conflicted because, you see, I actually watch them. And I admittedly am thoroughly entertained by them. And then, like a night of a sleazy affair in a cheap motel, I feel equally ashamed afterwards because it is such bad TV and surely I could be doing something more worthwhile with […]
