I’ve spent a good portion of today half convinced it was Thursday. I’m sure this happens to everyone now and again, the persistent feeling that it’s a different day than it really is, but seeing as how I’m going out of town on Thursday and I haven’t even finished packing yet this particular bit of cognitive dissonance is more confusing than usual and is causing me the occasional mild panic until I remember that it’s not freaking Thursday and I maybe need some more coffee. This is similar to those times that I wake up from a dream where I slept through my alarm by hours only to realize that it’s still dark out and I begin to wonder if my brain is driving me crazy and then I think “how can one’s own brain drive them crazy?” and then I realize that my brain can totally tell I’m onto its plan. There’s no escape. Maybe I don’t need more coffee. Here’s you Wednesday night TV:
8:00pm: “American Idol” on Fox
“America’s Next Top Model” on The CW
“Minute to Win It” on NBC

“Shedding for the Wedding” on The CW. I’ve seen some promo for this in which a couple says that if they don’t win the contest “there probably won’t be a wedding” and I can’t decide if they mean that if they don’t slim down they don’t want to marry each other anymore (bad) or that if they can’t have an absolutely perfect “dream” wedding with catering, designer dresses, and an overpriced venue that it’s not worth getting married (also really bad). I realize it’s not romantic, but all you need to do to have a wedding is get yourself and your intended (provided you are engaging in opposite marriage, same marriages require a little more planning and perhaps a serious relocation) down to the courthouse with a couple witnesses and do the damn thing. It’s divorce that’s the expensive part.
