Thirteen Things, Edition Five:
Thirteen Things I Am Embarrassed To Admit, the T.V. Version

1. I watch The Real Housewives of Orange County.

2. And I like it.

3. At some point during every episode of Extreme Make-over, Home Edition; I cry.

4. I have never watched an episode of American Idol and don’t really get what all the fuss is about.

5. I’m actually bummed that NBC is canceling Passions.

6. I only watched it when I was home from work, which isn’t often but, still; bummed.

7. Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife scares the holy hell out of me. If I were a fugitive and she was on my ass, I would totally turn myself in.

8. When interviewed by the media, I think Patrick Dempsey comes off like an asshole.

9. But I would still sleep with Dr. McDreamy.

10. You know, if I were Meredith.

11. I never watch awards shows but I do watch the red carpet coverage prior to the shows so that I can bag on what everyone is wearing.

12. I am a sci-fi geek and I love Battlestar Galactica (my younger sister just rolled her eyes to the heavens and sighed in disgust).

13. I actually cried real tears when the Sci-Fi Channel cancelled Farscape. There may have been sobbing, even.

  1. Great list. Made me smile.
    Happy TT!
    Oh, and I also usually cry at some point during Extreme Makeover Home Edition

  2. I don't watch American Idol either.

    I was also disappointed that Farscape was cancelled.

    I'm also disappointed that Stargate will be cancelled after the end of this season.

    My 13 are up.

  3. I watched American Idol when it first started, but lost interest with how crazy and outrageos the judges are.

    Happy TT!

    My TT is up!

  4. Fun list! Battlestar Galactica is a great show. It's one of the shows that my husband and I watch every week, along with Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Smallville, and Mythbusters. Yes, we're geeks. ;)

    I've never watched American (or Canadian) Idol either.

    Happy T13. :)

  5. #13 on your list was my husband, too. He loved that show! I agree with #8, too. He's cocky. As for #3, I sob like a baby. Can't help it. My sons like to watch it too, just so they can see me cry. For some reason, it cracks them up. lol.

  6. Good list!
    Thank you for visiting my TT.
    Have a wonderful Thursday.
    Happy TT'ing!

  7. They're cancelling Passions? I hadn't heard that. I am bummed too.

  8. I cried about Farscape, too. Still do, in fact.

    Hey, have you read any of the novels? I have one here that needs a home; I'd be glad to share it. Drop me an e-mail via West of Mars.

    As for Beth... yup. I wouldn't want to be on HER bad side. She's one tough mama. Fascinating as hell, though. I'd love to get to know her.

  9. We are sci-fi geeks over here, too!
    I not only cry at homemakeover, but I also freak out every week when they do the big Sears commercial thingy because I think the show is over and they haven't shown the secret room yet! My husband waits for it........ then cracks up!
