Sexiest Man Alive on TV

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the sexiest man on television Superman himself Mr. Tom Welling!  People Magazine just recently crowned Ryan Reynolds sexiest man alive so I figured I would do my own version.  Ryan is a cutie for sure.  But I think Tom is the best on TV and he ties with Brad Pitt as far as movies go. I know many women out there agree that he will be missed after this last season of Smallville ends.  Lets hope he graces us with his presence again in some new projects soon.

Bad Girls Club Shameful Exploitation

I get it.  These girls sign up for this show called Bad Girls Club they weren't forced on the show.  But I think any decent person would agree that the girls on this show have some serious emotional problems.  I watched the mayhem this season and Part 1 of the reunion last night.  Not one of these girls seem to have learned their lesson.  They are still angry, bitter and negative.  They are all about knocking the next person down to make themselves feel better.  I can't understand why a show like this is so popular when its blatant exploitation of woman who are unhappy and trying to make themselves feel better.  I must admit I watched myself but it was more out of shock for what I was seeing.  After watching this show its hard not to get sucked into the negativity.  Its not at all a feel good show.  My mood was dampened.  While there are some humorous moments that I laughed at I would suspect out of nervousness and shock, they really needed to brighten it up a little more.  In fact as far as I am concerned I will try my best not to watch another season unless something is changed.  Why can't they do something to help these women?  Even if its a very small part of the end of the reunion.  Have them speak to someone about their issues.  The network is making plenty of money off of women who don't know any better and want love and attention.  I'm I the only one who sees something wrong with that?

Diet Soda Drinkers Beware!

I was surprized the other day after reading various articles that suggested that drinking diet drinks can actually make you fatter. How ironic is that! You drink diet to avoid gaining weight, but too much can have the opposite effect.  Although the information was online and easy to find, I had to actually go look for it. Of all the articles I had read lately that help people lose weight that topic never came up. That really made me want to tell other people or make it a bigger deal than it currently is. I am not sure exactly how it works but for some reason studies show that large consumptions of diet soda, in other words drinking it when your thirsty like water because it has no calories or sugar, had a direct effect on the subjects appetites.  It made them hungrier and thus they ate more and gained weight. I was especially interested because I love the taste of regular non-diet soda. Turns out not only does it taste better but in the long haul its better in moderation than diet.

Election Day 2010

Today is yet another election day. So far all that meant to me was that I could come straight to work and not have to drop my daughter off at school. This year I have little to no interest in the election. Its pretty much common knowledge that Andrew Cuomo is going to win. Not a huge victory considering his competition, Carl Paladino, seemed to sabotage his candidacy with crazy antics. There is no way you can be both anti-gay and Governor of NYC.

At work things are dull and boring as ever. I had a conference call to join as soon as I got in. That killed some time. I have felt pretty happy today. I have been making an effort to change some bad habits I have had for a long time. I am trying to be enlightened. Allowing the world to work as it will and not fighting the inevitable or wasting my time on regret and worry about the future. It has made me much happier although I have my moments when I regress. But I can say I am happy with my progress. Now I am trying to find a way to change my career path by finding my passion! There is so much information out there it probably would turn most people off. I actually find that I like reading and getting as much information as possible. I know that's a clue right there of what I should be doing in life but alas I still don't get it.
So this was my first post! I have finally taken a step in starting a huge blog one day! Please feel free to post comments. Thanks!
