Okay. That's Not Funny.

I cannot comprehend reality television.

Or more specifically, I cannot comprehend people’s need for reality television. Are people not getting enough reality in…their real lives??

As in…like, reality??

Now, I know what some of you are thinking…and What Not to Wear doesn’t count…at least, not with me.

I am under no illusions that I’m any kind of fly on the wall whilst Clinton Kelly and Stacy London act as on-air talent every Friday night at precisely 9pm on The Learning Channel.

Is the show entertaining? I think so.

Are the hosts witty and incredibly pleasant on the eyes? Absolutely.

Is the show any kind of an example of real life? Give me a break.

I also don’t own one of those fancy-schmancy DVD/R/CD/RSQ%#!!-thingies, so I can’t record stuff to watch it at a later time….I am truly an of-this-moment kinda gal.

Either I catch it, or I miss it. It’s pretty basic stuff, I’m afraid.

But I’m still not getting the whole “reality” thing. Do people need more drama in their lives? Has modern day life become so mundane that one needs to delve into other people’s lives for something to worry about??

I’d like to go on record as saying that I, for one, do NOT need any more drama in my life.

Anyone who chooses to enter a contest, start a new business, give birth to more people than my entire family combined, attempt a death-defying stunt, eat anything that doesn’t belong in a known food group or wishes to date outside his or her own species…is unequivocally, officially and undeniably on their own.

I will not watch it.

I’m too busy living it.

I’m stepping down now.
