Pick, pick, pick

I’ve never been one to watch a lot of television. In fact, I hardly ever watch it.

Since yesterday was the last day of my vacation I decided to keep the tv on while I was doing some odds and ends around the house. What I saw was a bit shocking.

First of all, when did Kelly Ripa stop being just thin?...now she’s emaciated beyond belief! I kept thinking that television makes everyone look about 10 - 20 lbs heavier and that she must look more like a walking skeleton in person than she does on tv.

I had lunch with Kelly Ripa about 15 years ago. She was in her early 20's and just finished playing a softball game in my neighborhood. Her and her friends came over to me and told me that they liked my outfit (it was a floral jump suit shorts thing and a straw hat with a matching band, hey - stop laughing, it was fashionable back then!). Then she asked if me and my kids would like to join them for lunch, and we said yes, of course. She was so friendly and sweet. We had a great time.

Secondly, when did Oprah get so old? I remember her going to New Orleans last year and thinking that she looks great for her age. Yesterday she didn’t look so good.

I could go on and on about Jerry Springer, Judge Judy and the chick who seemed drunk during her hearing, Dr. Phil......but I just remembered why I don’t watch television.....it brings out the worst in me. I start picking and picking at people.

So, I’d better just step away from the tv, I’m more of a book reader anyway.

What about you?

I almost never watch daytime TV for that very reason. There's just not much I want to spend my time on.

I do not get the luxury of much TV time, but I do love me some "American Idol" and "Dancing with the Stars". Other than that, I am not really all that interested.
