I've got to get out of here! No not taking a vacation from reality, trying to find a way to escape all these reality TV shows.
There is nothing to love there, don't you agree?
Dear... oh to heck with it, I can't say another word without confessing I love Celebrity Ghost Stories and American Pickers (are those reality TV?) and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding - how could you NOT? Have you seen those dresses?
|It took him a year to propose. I wasn't going to waste another second, so I grabbed the paper table cloth and napkin and made a dress on the spot!|
But Helen, you say, the young women hardly wear anything the rest of the time, aren't you shocked? Shocked? If Helen were a sweet young thing she might just go around buck nekkid, you don't know!
|Oh right, Madonna wore this when she was your age and it was fashion. If she went out like this today people would shake their head and mutter about having another 'senior moment'.|
TV certainly has changed. But you know - the more things change the more they stay the same.
Yesterday on NPR we tuned into the middle of discussion of a wacky group who climbed into a pained bus and went around the country getting up to a bunch of crazy adventures.
I guessed: The Partridge Family.
|Sqeeeeee - He's as dreamy as David Cassidy!|
|I can see Iowa from my bus!|
Of course it was the tale of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Thomas Wolfe about Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters.
|The kids asked me why I didn't know the right answer and I had to explain that I am not as old as it seems from their vantage point, at that time I was just discovering real Kool-Aid!|
And if everything old is new again, then Helen suggests you do what she did last night to avoid bad programming...
Yes. Bad TV has driven me to ... crafting.
Inspired by this FAB postcard (a gift from my friend Betsy on the World's Longest Yardsale). It's my second favorite find: I think of it as The Original Jersey Shore.
