Why Am I Still Single + Giveaway Winner

Matt's roommate, Molly, has introduced us to a wonderful new world:

Gone are the days when VH1 simply showcased music videos that were slightly-less-edgy than those on MTV, as we are now living in the days of increasingly silly reality TV.  But the silliest thing about this show isn't its subject matter . . . it's the host's name.

I mean, either she seriously pissed her mother off while in utero, or maybe she intends to be an advocate for kids who will surely be ridiculed in school for their names.  Either way, how awesome is it that her name is SIGGY FLICKER?

Siggy's name isn't the only entertaining thing about the show.  There are hot twin stylists, sassy date-scouters, and uppity clients who can't be pleased no matter how hard you try.  Plus, last week's episode featured this guy.  I wonder why he's still single?

Thank God for mindless entertainment.  Sunday afternoon, Matt had the audacity to flip to the Discovery channel.  I immediately got all pissy and wanted to chirp, "TV is not for educational purposes!  It's for watching Siggy Flicker find dates for folks with ridiculous hair styles!"  

I mean, hey--I spend my days teaching high schoolers about the Prison Industrial Complex and its stakes in poverty, racism, and oppression in general . . . suffice to say I need some levity in the evenings.  Cue Siggy Flicker!

**Thanks to all who entered the Lilo Prints giveaway!  The winner, chosen by random.org, is . . . 

Emailing you right now with details.  Congrats!

Oh my gosh, this is too funny! I haven't heard of this yet {I typically stay away from VH1...} but now I know where to go if I need to be entertained for a bit!


Dee Stephens said...

Haven't heard of this either! I don't watch much VH1 anymore lately. I'm a BRAVO TV ho!

and that one member of Siggy's staff with the weird stick-on accoutrements on her body looks like a combination of Deena from Jersey Shore plus 10 years on heroin.

This post had me cracking up! :) I just lost it when I clicked on that link and saw the horrible mullet!!! OMGGGGGG!!

Of course this got me to thinking of Jessie's brief online dating stint and I wonder how many of these kind of men have profiles out there!!! bahaha

I think the only TV show I watch that even remotely would fit into this category of guilty pleasure TV would be the Kardashians.

Congrats to the winner of the awesome Lilo Print!!! I'm jealous!!!

Love you!! xo
