Isn't it ironic that I busted everyone's butts about not blogging, and then I've been MIA for a week? Blame it on the work, my friends. Blame it on the work.

I am emerging from the chaos with a long list of homework for the weekend. I am very backed up on my assignments, and here is what has to be done:

  • Read the past two weeks' worth of New York magazine
  • Read the mast two months' worth of In Style magazine
  • Read last month's Oprah magazine (shut up, my mom gives it to me)
  • Read last month's Parenting magazine (yeah, I need a manual)
  • Speaking of which, read the "the tenth month" chapter in What to Expect the First Year
  • Finish reading Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner
  • Start my book club book, Nineteen Minutes
  • Attend to my DVR backup, which includes:
  • Two episodes of "Top Chef"
  • Nine episodes of "Sex and the City"
  • Three episodes of "The Colbert Report"
  • Two episodes of "The Daily Show"
  • One episode of "America's Next Top Model"
  • One episode of "Work Out"
  • One episode of "The Bachelor: London Calling" (shut up)
  • One episode of "The Hills" (I'm not apologizing)
  • One showing of "John Oliver: Terrifying Times"
  • One episode of "Desperate Housewives"

I'm very far behind, as you can see. I would hardly win the pop culture Olympics at this point. I don't even think I'd place.

Why do I feel like I've totally outed myself as a complete tool in this post? Oh, like you didn't know that already.

If anyone was honest about their typical weekend "to do" list it probably wouldn't seem that much less tool-like. Mine's certainly no more impressive. Well, except for the plethora of reality TV on your DVR backup.

It sounds like you're going to be very busy this weekend. Don't feel bad, I've written publicly of my love for Dog the Bounty Hunter. I think that makes me much more of a tool.

That seems a lot more fun than "Vacuum out the lint trap bin in the dryer." That's on MY to-do list!

I, too, am addicted to both The Hills and America's Next Top Model. I can actually feel my brain rotting as I watch Heidi and Spencer have another inane fight, but I can't stop. It feeds some deep crap TV-craving part of my soul.
