WHY do I get so into these "artsy" reality tv shows?!
"American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance," and "Dancing With The Stars" especially...
I even gave these a chance
~ "America's Best Dance Crew" (The Randy Jackson baby on MTV)
~ "America's Got Talent"
~ "Star Search" (I just hadta)
~ "Step It Up and Dance"
~ "Dance Wars"
~ "Clash of the Choirs"
~ another 12 or so that I'm surprisingly forgetting right now...
Anyway, if I seem to be a tween by the song choices that are at the top in my playlist, then so be it. I can't help it that one out of every five songs I hear nowadays has a spot in my memory bank that relates to one of the aforementioned shows. I can't help it if I secretly want to be friends with Marissa Jaret Winokur (*even though I had to google how to spell her name), and absolutely detest Samantha Harris's co-hosting and interviewing skills. I can't help it that the only Backstreet boys I really ever liked were Joey Fatone and JC Chasez. I can't help it if the silly arguments between Ryan Seacrest and Simon are JUST the reason I've got to DIE!!! I can't help it if Bruno Tonioli and his colorful remarks make me laugh out loud! I can't help it that Mario Lopez (who went pretty far last year on "Dancing With The Stars" AND hosted "America's Best Dance Crew") is NOW cuter to me than he EVER was on Saved By The Bell - tell me I'm not alone!
Once again, my answer is quite simple, if I really think about it.
Why do I love those shows? Why do I NEED to have DVR? Why do Rodney and I have little tiffs about who holds the remote when we climb into bed at night?
I'll tell you why - It's SUSAN'S fault!!! THAT'S why!!! LOL!
Mama - I love you~ and I am so thankful that God saw fit for me to land in the sweet spot where the arts, especially music (and a little too much tv) were the constant melody to which we danced. Happy Mother's Day, again, and please know that our little girls getaway last summer to see the tour of "SYTYCD" in Greensboro would not have been near as fun, or even possible, if it hadn't been for you.
