Oasis for YA knows that the surest way to get good things in life is to be thankful for what you have. So why not encourage a group thankful-fest once a week in which we all send out good energy and hope to get some back in return? Plus, participating in Thankful Thursday is a great way to connect with other writers.
Here are the rules:
1. Do your own blog post on what you’re thankful for today. It doesn’t have to be book or publishing related (but it can be!).
2. Be sure to grab our badge and include it in your post.
3. Post a link to your blog in the comments here so that others can find you.
4. Go forth and share your gratitude! (And when friending new blogs, be sure to let them know you found them because of their participation in the meme.)
This week I’m thankful for nonsensical, mind-numbing reality TV. My husband is gone way too much, and I often need a little bit of empty entertainment to fill my evenings. Plus, let’s be honest: There’s something about reality TV that makes us “normal” folk feel really good about our lives.
Here’s what I’m watching these days:
Sixteen and Pregnant – Equal parts riveting and depressing. Also, excellent birth control.
Pregnant in Heels – I rolled my eyes at the preview clips, but I have to say, Pregnant in Heels is so much better than I thought it would be. Rosie the ‘maternity concierge’ is quite knowledgable and very likeable.
America’s Next Top Model – A tried and true favorite, although Tyra Banks grates my nerves more with every season. I watch this one with my neighbor (who walks down the street in PJs, often toting yummy flavored vodka to join me… a true friend if ever there was one!).
Addicted to Food – Rehab for people with various eating disorders on OWN. Seriously fascinating.
Top Chef Masters – Can you tell I have a thing for Bravo? I love the Top Chef franchise because I love food, competition, and the theatrics and excitement of it all. Recommend!
