I've been sucked into the world of reality television. I never thought something like this could happen to me, but here I am. I've been hooked on Joe Millionaire, Star Search, Meet the Folks, trashy dating shows of all shapes and sizes and even American Idol, where tonight Nathan and I were surprised to see a guy we went to college with who actually made the first cut and is going to Hollywood! The scary part is not how easily this old schoolmate made it into the world of crappy pop, but how unsuspecting I was when I began to casually watch these addictive shows. I was only experimenting, but now I can't stop. It's become more than a guilty pleasure; it's a nightly event! I think I need an intervention.
