Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Ramblings... because I can do whatever the heck I want to! GOSH!

Veronica Mars is, like, the best show ever. EVAH, I say! I mean it. I DO. You should just take my word for it.

Um, American Idol? Can we puhLEEEEEZ get to the people with, you know, actual talent? Because that would be GRRRRREAT. Thanks. Although the mortician dude was hella hawt and he definitely had some pipes, come to think of it. And was totally hawt. Hella hawt.

Seriously. If you are not watching Veronica Mars on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on UPN (soon to be the CW!), you are totally missing out. There. I wash my hands of it. I can do no more.

And will someone please, please, PLEASE go and freaking bitch-slap American Idol contestant R.J. "Everybody Totally Loves Me Because I am Hot and Sexy and a Total Playah So Bow Down Before Me!" Norman-- who, incidentally, is quite possibly the worst human being I have ever come across, like, EVER in my entire life-- before I have to drive on down to Hollywood and open a can on him?! Dude could sing, and sing well, but I feel completely within my rights when I say that he needs to drop off the face of the earth, and I mean NOW. Because honestly. Worst. Person. Ever. And what kind of self-respecting girl falls for the shizz he was pulling, anyway?! Eh?! Oh. I see. The operative phrase here would be "self-respecting," right? Gotcha. Whatever. Die, R.J.! Die!

Is it weird that I would SO love to live next to the ocean and write for television and movies, but I utterly despise the shallow, self-aggrandizing aspiring writers who inundate the fair and pleasantly temperate city of Hollywood, California? And this is not even to mention the utter vapidness that is the L.A. entertainment industry (better, ern?) social scene! No thank you! Then again... beach!

The weirdo stalker contestant who brought the truckload of ginormous, poorly executed sketches of Paula FREAKED ME RIGHT OUT, I kid you not. All the little hairs on the nape of my neck suddenly stood up when she appeared in all her psycho scariness on my screen, and it was not just due to the fact that she wore quite possibly the weirdest, fugliest ensemble imaginable. Fuh-REEKY. Seriously. Was it just me?

I sure hope Logan and Veronica kiss and make up one of these days. Because hello, chemistry! Where YOU been?! Aaaaaw... I just love those crazy kids. And the part where they kiss and stuff is fun, too. Just sayin'.

Amen, Cat! Enough of the audition shows already. R.J. can't really be that conceited, can he? I was thinking that maybe he wants a record deal, but doesn't want to be the "American Idol" so he's setting himself to be voted off by America early. Just a theory. Or he could just be a total ass. How about living near the Atlantic Ocean and writing for witty, happening New York or Philly based shows? Sure, the sunny weather isn't year roundm but the people tend to be more... I don't know.. PEOPLE.

Ya know, there are OTHER social scenes out here, filled with cool people like ME and JOHN BOY and CATHERINE and soon ANNEJELYNN. You don't have to participate in THAT social scene to live in the temperate wonder that is LA.

My bad. I meant the entertainment industry's social scene. Of COURSE I was not referring to all y'all! As if!

I hated when they had that big girl with the blonde braids in front on and they were making fun of her, camera panning her body and stuff. So. Irresponsible.

stop it! stop it! Stop IT! You're throwing in Veronica Mars RIGHT there in the middle of my American Idol update.

Is it not enough that you got my daughter addicted...now you're trying to do this to me too?

Trust me, you do NOT want to live on the water. Been there, left. Yes the view is nice, yes the beach is nice. Yesss, the sound of the waves is nice.

But... you have already concluded that humidity is not your friend. Mold can and will grow on anything - and mold is not your friend either.

Sometimes I miss it, and then I remember the mold. :shudder:

And, OK, I will TiVo VM and check it out.

Oooh! Odd Mix, if you want to truly experience the VM phenomenon, you have to get your hands on the Season 1 DVD's and see it from the beginning. It is SO worth it. Last season rocked, I kid you not. And the mysteries are all wrapped up at the end of the season (unlike some shows *cough* Lost *cough*), so there are all new mysteries this season.

And hey, welcome.

There must be some sort of law against discussing AI and VM in the same post. My eyes! aargh.

On the one hand, we have an inane show that is inexplicably the most popular show in the universe, and on the other is a brilliant and wildly entertaining show that inexplicably can't find an audience.

Okay, I get why AI is fun to watch and all, what with the train wreck fascination, but VM is astoundingly great and it is so annoying that people can't manage to find UPN on their TV dial. Logan and Veronica, oh those crazy kids. If they were stuck on that Lost island, the two of them would have had it all figured out by now and would be on their way home.

You are SO right, magnolia. It is prectically sacrilege, that's what it is! Hopefully the new CW network will pair VM with Gilmore Girls as the lead in and we will get TONS more viewers to ensure that Veronica and Logan (and Keith and Wallace and Beaver and DICK!) do not leave our TVs for at least 4 or 5 more years...

At least through college, right?!

But I have to admit, AI is my guilty pleasure. Especially when the people who can, you know, actually SING are finally fleshed out. What can I say? Musical theater geek here. I find it inane, yet entertaining. Like junk food for the mind, right?!

Oh, I get why AI is entertaining. I've been known to watch it on occasion, too.

But still, it's very sad that a parade of lousy singers is the highest-rated show in the land, while a show as brilliant and original and special as Veronica Mars can't find an audience at all, even by UPN standards.

I really hope the ratings for VM pick up next year when it's (knock on wood) after GG on Tuesday night. But then it will be against House and the Amazing Race and who knows what else, so VM always has to struggle against higher profile shows. I know a lot of people have discovered VM on DVD and maybe some of them will start tuning in.

A truckload of WORD, magnolia. From your lips to God's (or Dawn Ostroff's) ears...
