Keep Your Friends Close, And Your Food Closer

Next time you read this column I will back in Miami, which I am very much looking forward to. I’m not so much looking forward to heading through an international airport while we’re still in the midst of the panic sparked by the panty-bomber and Gatorade bottles full of honey dude. I already get picked to walk through those damn body scanners on a regular basis, which I would like to think is a random selection to ensure fairness and to check the functionality of the machines but because I’m cynical I usually just think that the guards want to get a chance to see a blurry digital image of me naked.

Now, I’ve had this in my signature this week, but since voting ends on Sunday I just wanted to stick in a slightly more overt reference: I’m participating in a facebook contest to be a Hugo Boss runway model. Technically, I’m too short to be a model, and I doubt anyone would ever let me set foot on a runway no matter what the good people of facebook say, but it could nab me a free trip to Berlin and a slim chance of getting on a runway is better than nothing. So! If you’d like to help, go to the Hugo Boss facebook page and type “Genevieve” into the search name field. I’m the redhead. Vote everyday! Thank you, and I won’t mention it ever again. Unless I go to Berlin, then maybe I will. Anyway, here’s what’s on TV tonight:

8:00pm: “Citi BCS National Championship Pre-Game” on ABC

“The This Old House Hour” on PBS

8:30pm: “Citi BCS National Championship” on ABC

9:00pm: “American Chopper” on TLC. (Seriously, you guys, there is like nothing on TV tonight.)

“Bear Whisperer” on Animal Planet. All I’m picturing is some cross between Timothy Treadwell and Ceasar Milan. He’ll glare at the bear in domineering fashion, and then when the bear submits he’ll turn around and lecture us about how gentle and wonderful bears are and how much people suck. And then the bear will eat him.

10:00pm: “Celebrity Rehab with Dr.Drew” on VH1, 3rd season premiere. 90 minutes long.

“BBQ Pit Masters” on TLC

“The Jay Leno Show” on NBC

“Jersey Shore” on MTV. I have yet to see this show, which is either the greatest thing currently on TV or proof that we are headed for the fall of Rome at an even faster pace that previously supposed, or both depending on who you ask.

“The Real Housewives of Orange County” on Bravo in which women who are neither “real” nor truly “housewives” will make bitchfaces at one another for about 45 minutes.
