Friday Night TV

I love Fridays, and I love to watch TV on Friday nights. My ultimate, all-time-favorite, guilty pleasure show is "What Not to Wear." Stacy and Clinton are my peeps. I wish I could pop them in my pocket and take them shopping with me. But in the meantime, I love watching them throw out people's nasty clothes, talking them into trying more stylish choices, and tossing out their dry, witty repartee. I love watching the fashion victims' meltdowns, their resistance to Nick's hair suggestions, and the look on their faces when they finally see how beautiful they are - how beautiful they've been all along.

I've just recently started watching "Say Yes to the Dress." It's about a New York Bridal Salon, and the many different bride-to-be's who come in to try on dresses. I love beautiful dresses, so this would seem to be a natural for me. But I've seen so many truly awful wedding shows, and have watched "My Super Sweet 16" too many times...I thought this would be like those awful girls, all grown up and now planning over-the-top wedddings with the budget of a third-world country. So I was a little skittish. Suffice it to say - this show is now a new guilty pleasure for me. Yes, it has the bridezillas; the princesses, buying $15,000 gowns; but it also has lots of normal, sweet women who just want to look special.

So I'm parked in front of the TV, and ready for tonight! Bring on the dresses! Bring on Stacy and Clinton!

I actually watched Say Yes to the Dress last week and was surprised at how good it was.

I was also telling Rob tonight that I want to start dressing schlumpy so that he'll nominate me for What Not To Wear. Then, I can go on the show and meet them and get a fabulous new wardrobe and haircut. Except he said I don't need it. A nice compliment, but still - I want the new clothes!!

I miss American cable TV shows. The wedding one sounds like fun! :)
