The elusive and captivating Vangina...

I have noticed a disturbing (read train wreck) trend in reality tv for the last few years.  While for a few years the reality tv community was focused on something I find captivating (LITTLE PEOPLE!)...recently I have been disappointed with the excessive amount of shows featuring a) multiple births and b) largely over producing families and c) multiple spouses.  While one or two shows featuring unique families of this nature is acceptable, the copy cat effect makes them completely nauseating to me.

She looks mighty comfy with those fake babies...
I call it the Vangina effect.  There are multiple versions of the Vangina  effect. First there is one time use Vangina, also known as the mini-Vangina (as in Ford Birthstar). The mini-Vangina is most often associated with the Octomom, Kate Gosselin, and Bobbi MacCaughey.

Another well known Vangina is the CaraVangina. Like a line of semis, this Vangina is in constant movement. (See Michelle Duggar) This particular Vangina disturbs me mostly because with each delivery the carbon footprint of the Vangina increases. (It is Earth Day after all...)
Ah-choo! Oooo...number 20!

Finally, the MovingVangina. This is associated mostly with fundamentalist polygamy and the show Sister Wives.  I see nothing wrong with them loving each other, but seriously, those kids are gonna need some therapy.

These shows are encouraging women to use their women parts as a long term parking lot. And I do have a problem with that. I understand different beliefs dictate different standards, but lets be serious. It's 2011, the world's already over-crowded, and it's gonna end next year anyway....:)

To less Vanginas and more responsible breeding practices.

I got my first Blog Award!

I'm all smiles because L.A.C.E. @ My Glass House deemed me worthy of the Versatile Blogger Award!

So, now, in the tradition that goes with this awesome award, I will tell you 7 great things about myself and award this honor to 7 of you!

1. I have more clothes than I can count, and I'm donating half of them to the local homeless shelter.

2. I have the most loyal friends in the world. They are my lifeline when I'm down.

3. I have an unnatural attraction to Nestle Drumsticks. You know, the waffle cone with icecream, dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts?  Yeah. That's my Kryptonite.

4. I have worked in 3 different hotels successfully, but had to quit due to health issues.

5. I started blogging because my husband bet me I couldn't keep up a blog for more than 5 days. (Going on 6 weeks, and have had over 1700 views! Thanks, loyal readers!)

6. I am, in fact, a feline in a human body. Not to be confused with a furry. My reaction to being startled is to hiss and growl. I know, weird, but it's who I am.

7. I have the world's most blogable mother. It's like she does things just so I'll have an interesting blog. Fortunately, she is technology incompatible, so I can blog about her without being laid upon the coals. My dad finds my blog hilarious. :)

Ok now for the 7 worthy bloggers!

1.  Amanda from Adventures from Amandaland

2. Sarah from La Casa Di Frigerio

3. Alisha from Musings of a Manic Momma
