Hi! I've been browsing the boards for a while and finally decided to register. I'm excited about taking part. Now to borrow from Leo, here's a little about myself.
Favorite TV show: The Amazing Race
Hobbies: spending time with my sons, Disney, traveling, reality TV (duh!), the internet
Look forward to some good info and conversation here. Thanks for having me!
Can I Play Too?
I found out about this site through The Manly Man's reality TV reviews, and since I think he's very smart and funny I figured that you all would be too. So far it seems that I was right!
Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM
Old enough to remember HR Puffenstuff
Mom of 4 (two are steps)
Counselor - director of Crisis Center in New Mexico
Avid reader, film buff, theater-goer
Also work as a "Simulated Patient" at a medical school (VERY fun job. Yes, like Kramer on Seinfeld. Sort-of.)
Widowed when I was 28, remarried now
Favorite TV shows - Survivor, ER, Seinfeld, Northern Exposure, MASH, Friends, SCRUBS.
I have tried to only be addicted to one reality show - Survivor, but I'm getting hooked on Amazing Race and I think I will like the Mole. I saw the first episode of Joe Millionaire, but it made me feel icky. I'll probably watch it anyway - like a car wreck you can't look away from...
I found this site when searching for an update on the "Joe Millionaire" first episode which I sadly missed!! I found the info I needed and a great new site that I think I'll spend a lot of time on.
About me: I'm a 27 yr. old female from Bloomington/Normal, IL. I work in accounting and go to school part time at Illinois State University. I'm working on my degree in Accounting.
Marital Status: Married for nearly 2 years, no kids. I don't plan on having any, because I have too many other things I'd like to do in my life. I do love children, and have a 4 yr old niece I adore. I just choose not to have any of my own. I also have no pets, I had some fish but they all died. Just seems I'm not good with other living things!! I'm fairly sure my husband's still alive, though I have to poke him to be able to tell after he gets in front of his computer.
Anyway, that is me in a nutshell. I'm happy to have found this site and look forward to plenty of interesting conversation.
Also, my favorite shows have been The Bachelor, Big Brother (the first one was the only good one IMO), The Real World is always a classic as well. I also love The Osbournes and American Idol. Pretty much if it's reality TV I'll be watching!!
(PS - To Skey... I noticed you live in Springfield, Mo. Do you ever go into the bank where The Bachelor works to check him out??)
