OMG! I just realized something today...

I had an epiphany today. I realized that for my whole life I've been starring in a reality show. Problem is I don't know if I'm in danger of being voted off the island because I'm the biggest loser, or headed for an evening of dancing with the stars. At the very least, I'm clearly an American Idle. I wonder if my Big Brother is watching?

Believe me, it is very cold when you are off the island.

If you're starring in this reality show you're clearly guilty of over acting and the ratings are going to suffer ....

Being voted off the island is one thing- but have you left yet?

Well "To tell the truth" I don't know the "Password" and it's been a long time since I've played "The Dating Game" but since I'm on my way to "Divorce Court" I will just have to face the "Truth or Consequences".

Did I spell that right?
