    How I briefly lost 100 IQ points.

    I was flipping through channels on the TV in my sewing room. And stopped at MTV and Snookie & JJWOW was on.
    25 point drop there..........

    then one of the girls asked if Mexico had its own moon.
    another 25 point drop there....

    They were eating outdoors at an Italian restaurant (while in Mexico). A show with guys twirling batons that were on fire was the evening entertainment. I can only assume the girl who said this was the genius of the group....she said..."I wonder if you can get a tan from twirling those things?......

    A 50 point drop there.......

    I had about 35 points left, so I quickly changed the channel and shut the TV off.

    I think I will listen to music from now on..........LOL

And just think... Snooki has a baby now! It's enought o keep you awake at night! Scurry over to the Science Channel & hope you can make up the I. Q. purge... LOL!

    I never watch any of those shows but have seen some of the people on the morning talk shows and that shows me enough to know I will NEVER watch their shows! Too bad they can make so much money being so stupid!

    I have never watched the show. The little bit that I've seen on the Today show I wonder why the media is even giving these people attention. I was thrilled to hear the show was canceled. Between that and the Kardashians I question the common sense of media.

    I'm still trying to figure out where the non-democratic convention is since all i see on t.v. is about the Democratic convention. I thought everyone was Democratic in this Nation. OK, i know they mean Democrats! it just drives me nuts! even Republicans are Democratic!
    i guess i'll go back to t.v. now.................

    I think I have fully recovered. I went and bought me an ice cream.

    I usually don't watch that type of show. But as they say curiosity lower the cat's IQ. Anyways, I prefer old B/W gangster movies, anything with Tommy Lee Jones or Sam Elliot and Fox News.
    We make time to watch Sons of Anarchy, I can't wait until Tuesday evening. I am going to have to order the first two seasons of Boardwalk Empire. I missed most of last season.

    I am going to work on a laptop bag this weekend, since our new one arrived today.

    Has anyone seen "Honey-Boo-Boo" on TLC? It used to mean "The Learning Channel" but these days it's more like the loser's channel, and I don't mean the good kind of loosing, like losing weight!

    I don't even watch the BIG 3 channels. Nothing there to see (JMHO). I love my Criminal Minds, NCIS and Storage Wars over on A&E and USA. I will also watch certain shows on TLC and TNT. Today, A&E had a Criminal Minds marathon and I only did things during commercials!!! LOL
