Am I The Only One?
Sorry for this post, which is short and completely without meat.
I never watched Jon and Kate Plus 8 until last month.
The only reason I watched an episode or two last month was because I was chained to my bed by surgery and a weird allergic reaction that required me to take a lot of drugs that made me really, really sleepy.
I don't get the attraction of the show. The idea of eight children makes me want to go run and hide in a closet with a bottle of Valium and a fifth of rum.
And yet I find myself reading People Magazine articles about them and watching an occaional episode.
Am I the only one who thinks that maybe, just maybe, this "marital discord" is really just a marketing stunt for a show that's maybe not really a "reality" show anymore?
Or is that just the cynical divorce attorney in me talking?
PS - on my second round of steroids since the rash from the allergic reaction began to re-appear slightly after I finished the first round. Hoping this second round knocks it out. The steroids are making me jumpy and bloaty and the dreams...oh my word...the dreams...Last night I dreamt that a whole bunch of people were getting coffee in Lana's bedroom at 4:30 in the morning and I was all, "Hey! You idiots! My daughter's bedroom is NOT a convenience store!"
Except that suddenly then IT WAS a convenience store. And Francis Capra (the actor who played Weevil Navarro on Veronica Mars) was there, and he wanted coffee and I YELLED at him. (So you have to know it was a dream. Because if Francis Capra showed up at my house at 4:30 AM wanting coffee...I probably would give him some...)
