Sucked in again . . .

So, I swore myself off of MTV reality shows because I have a child now. And mothers don't watch MTV reality shows. Or begin sentences with conjunctions.

However, the tivo downstairs was still set to record the Hills . . . and it did. So, when I was nursing Jack today, I started watching the new episodes. I am, once again, hooked. Also, some of "The Hills" the recorded must have been scheduled wrong because "Newport Harbor" (the replacement for Laguna Beach) recorded instead. Now I'm sucked into that sad little show too. Stupid MTV programming geniuses. I think teenage girls watch the show because they want to be the kids that they see. I watch the show to make fun of them.

Where am I going with this? Well, as I was fast forwarding through the commercials I noticed that they were geared toward people my age. Lots of diaper and Disney video commercials. I was surprised by this. I thought they'd be gearing commercials more toward teenagers. Maybe I'm not the only one in my age bracket watching these shows. Or maybe there are more teenage parents watching than I'm aware of. Mothers probably shouldn't end sentences with prepositions either, huh?

I know that the day when I need to stop watching MTV is coming, but I'm allowed one more season, right?

I'll admit it. I'm an MTV junkie....The Hills & Real World. I know, I know.....much too old for that kind of SMUT, but......I find it amusing. What about that "Justin Bobby"! :) Anyway, one of my co-workers who has a 1 & 1/2 yr old and is 31 (32??) herself also watches it. She has to tivo it b/c she can't watch it when her husband is home. I just watch all the episodes commercials!! :) ~Sar V
