Are you familiar with the hideousness that is the Disney Channel Summer Games? My kids Tivoed it, so I have seen in a few times. Its like Jr. High P.E. but with none of the self-consciousness. Yikes. There's really nothing worse, in my opinion, than over-confident, over-enthusiastic, spastic teens and tweens. It's really gross and I hate it.
I guess the only people who are watching Law and Order every night are me and poor people who use catheters. It's a demographic I didn't know existed. I kind of wish it didn't. Every night I see adds for fresh catheters for people who have to reuse catheters when they "cath." When did "to cath" become a verb? (I feel disenfranchised for not being in on that decision.) It's disturbing: "I used to have to boil and reuse catheters every time I had to cath." Oh my goodness. Separate pots and pans for caths and pasta, I hope. Listen, I feel for these people. Should I ever (heaven forbid) need to cath, I hope I won't have to reuse my catheters. But I would prefer not to get that kind of information from a commercial on TV--maybe some kind of private mailing?
And lastly, I just barely saw an ad for moms where a busy lady says that she "deserves a paper plate as strong as" she is. I'm pretty strong too--and I'm a harried mom as well. Please tell me I "deserve" something more than a paper plate. I like to think I deserve a nice birthday present, or freedom of speech. If a strong paper plate is not just a handy object but something I deserve I might just want to kill myself.
