My mother came home yesterday from Arizona. I think everyone in my family thinks I’m an alcoholic? I’m not…………..no I’m not in a 12 program where denial is the first step or admitting I have a problem as a first step. Mom brought me 3 shot glasses. Thanks Mom, but I don’t measure other than to see if it’s roughly 2 fingers \m/. Is everyone trying to tell me I have a problem? I have roughly 20 shot glasses in the cupboard yet I have 0-4 drinks in total on a weekend? lol!

When Carly Rae Jepsen releases singles, I like them & I’m unimpressed with the album.

I had her pegged as a young 20 something year old but Kim did some digging and found out she’s 29.

CONTEST SHOWS/REALITY SHOWS

Wednesday, January 28th

Share this link & pass it around to those that might enjoy. Tell them how to subscribe from a desk top or laptop computer! Let’s get some more people on board? http://www.amillionmilesawayblog.com Don’t feel as though you need to click on every link. That’s why I try to do a short explanation for each link if it’s not a youtube link, that is always open, for those who use Google Chrome web browser, on the website. For those who have subscribed, THANK YOU! I recommend that when you get an email from the site you may want to come to the site.

Why? Why are most new TV show a talent contest? We we’re watching the premier of a reality show Monday night. I don’t like reality shows. Most of these types of shows have judges. A singing show, a dancing show, a building show, etc. So the “judges” ,as this one did also, say “…here’s the top however many we find suitable for you to vote on………..”? That’s as far away from reality as you can get in my eye! Yes, I have one eye that’s always open since Kim threatens me every night that she’ll smother me with a pillow if I snore! I have a great idea for a reality show! Let’s see who can watch paint dry the longest & we’ll eliminate the contestants if they’re looking at the paint the wrong way! I’m gonna be rich with an idea like that! Tell your friends, it’ll hit a major network on Friday or early next week. We have 100s of channels on TV & during the day the only thing on during the day is “The Ellen Degeneres Show” that I record every day to watch when Kim comes home from work. Thank goodness for DVDs, Blu-rays, Netflix, or the Late night shows I record & watch the next day(Jimmy Fallon & Conan) I like Jimmy Kimmel it’s just too much TV. At least whatever “Country’s Got Talent” tells you in the title it’s a talent contest. I’ll take a scripted show any day over a talent show. Kim likes them so I leave the room when some contest/talent show comes on. I wonder how celebrities became famous without these shows? I’m not picking on any particular show, though it may sound that way, it just happened to premiere recently. I’m just bored with these types of shows. Who’s to say what’s good & what’s bad? It’s art, so it’s subjective. “You like the winner? I was all in for contestant 147”! Why do I need to keep up on the Kardashians? Why do I know who Paris Hilton is? It’s television, it’s subjective, & I choose not to watch most of those shows. I watch less TV when there’s a hot new “reality” show.

Scientific evidence supporting the use of pesticides & GMOs. Hard to argue against science. I’m not always right but science is more hit than miss. Even Steven Hawking proved then disproved the occurrence of the big bang. Then he got a TON of hate mail!

Here are a few of my favourite songs/videos.
