Of all the things about new motherhood those damn books try to tell you, they fail to warn you about the lack of quality television at 2am. It's not such a big deal to watch some ridiculous Hallmark Made-for-TV special on Lifetime.
But when you're so tired and vulnerable that you're sucked into the damn infomercials, so much so that you can totally rationalize your need for a bullet blender thing, then something needs to be done.
Of course, then I would never have discovered that Family Feud is still on television, except now hosted by the guy who played Elaine's boss at the catalog on Seinfeld. (I realize he has a real name but that's the only way I can remember him).
Seriously, hasn't every single reject comedian hosted that show?
So, I'm a game show addict, particularly $100,000 Pyramid - seriously. I love the marathons. Share your game show memories (c'mon, I know you have your closet faves) as part of the PBN blog blast (visit the blog for details on how to enter) and you might win a $400 shopping spree from Oliebollen.com, one of my favorite shops (truly) even though they are located in the town of my grad school rival. You know, that OTHER Michigan university.
