In honor of today being Friday, I thought I would post some eye candy:

Ahhh, David Beckham. Yum-my! It's too bad Victoria Beckham: Coming to America didn't feature more footage of him. Sigh. This pic is pretty tame for him. Hey, I am trying to keep the blog as PG-13 as I can! Of course, I did look at the other pics too. ;-) (Like this one...and this one. And, holy crap, this one!)

I have to admit, I am pretty clueless when it comes to tv these days. I make a point to watch no more than 1 or 2 shows at a time, if that. Right now I'm watching So You Think You Can Dance and Big Love. I knew the Beckhams were coming to the US, but jeeze, I had know idea there was going to be a reality show to televise the ordeal! So, I had to clean house and run on the treadmill last night. The kiddo is asleep, so I turn on the tv to have a little background noise and there it was.

First thought - WTF?????

Second thought - Why in the hell does anyone care enough to actually watch the Beckhams move here????

Then, it happened. I was sucked in. You know what they say about train wrecks, right? You don't want to look at it. Then you do. Next thing you know, you can't pull your eyes away from the wreckage. This was EXACTLY like that! The silliness of it, the accent, the crazy-ass clothes...I couldn't help but watch. I am the gullible goofball that the tv networks try to capture. I fell right into their trap.

I know what you are thinking.

You're shaking your head. tsk, tsk.

Don't worry. I don't understand it either.

At least it made cleaning the house and my 30 minutes on the treadmill a little more bearable. That, my friends, is always a good thing.

Ohhhhh girl you don't even want me to go there. Um hi, I watch the Cathouse (the 1/2 on the Bunny Ranch brothel) series on HBO. I find the girls, the johns, the pimp, pretty much everything and everyone repulsive in there but yet I keep coming back to watch more. It's like a bad comedy or something LOL I would never criticize your taste in TV. In fact I like your taste of TV shows.

At least you don't watch the Girls Next Door- I'm sucked into that one- the one about the 3 girls that live with Hef in the Playboy's terrible, but I can't stop watching!

I am way behind in my TV watching. Are you into BB8? That's usually my "shouldn't watch but always do" show for the summer.

We were coming back into town Monday night; Tuesday night was dinner at a friend's house. Wednesday was gymnastics. Thursday was at the Berry Center.

DH made me promise I'd stay home tonight (Friday). I'M SO BORED!!!

Randy said...

Scott you weren't alone..I clicked too...bad move...bad bad move...who the heck are the Beckham's anyway...first I have to admit that I don't read or watch Harry this...good grief!!!!

Hey Marcy, move over on the couch a bit will you, I've got the pop corn for the next episode of the Cathouse floosies.....I've actually fallen asleep watching this one....

LOL Marcy & Randy, I'll admit to catching a few episodes of Cathouse too. Since Randy has the popcorn, I'll bring the 'ritas! Oh, and I don't do Harry Potter.
