Things I'm embarrassed to admit I watch

Top Chef Just Desserts. I actually watched it twice last night just to see Seth do his huffy pouty meltdown thing. Spouse also observed that while on Iron Chef (which I'm not ashamed to admit I watch) some of them may in fact be gay, you'd never know it, whereas here it seems to be a casting requirement to have one in every season. (Sidebar: Iron Chef Cat Cora is in fact gay; she recently spoke out on that so-heartbreaking Tyler Clementi suicide.)

Sister Wives. Maybe because I've never been good at having female friends, I'm fascinated by these women who are such good buddies they manage to SHARE A MAN. What's that all about??

Teen Mom. Just for Macy. The rest of them are train wrecks but that girl seems to have her head on straight.

I really should cancel my cable. It's rotting my brain, and it's not like I have enough brain cells to be able to spare that many. (NB: The theory that killing off the weak brain cells makes you smarter turns out, sadly, to be flawed.)

Now that I've owned up to habits so disgraceful that none of my friends (either real life or virtual) will respect me ever again, I'm going back to my medieval history, comparative religion and Neil Gaiman. Just to prove that one can enjoy both ends of the intellectual spectrum without spontaneously combusting. Though I do feel a little flushed...

Go read some Caroline Walker Bynum. I highly recommend Holy Feast, Holy Fast and Wonderful Blood. It'll give your brain a workout.
