Y'all know I don't cook, right? Well, when we were at Walmart picking up lunch from the deli section, I spotted the fresh corn and thought it looked really good. So I bought some. I couldn't remember how long to nuke it for, so I had to google for instructions. And found this page on Cooks.com: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,1850,158185-243196,00.html. It said to microwave the corn with the husks still on and although I found the peeling part to be a bit painful (the corn was darn hot and I foolishly didn't want to dirty a bar towel), it turned out wonderfully. I also recommend a mix of lemon juice, butter, and Montreal grilling mix/salt to top it. Yum.

Also a new experience, watching Bridezillas Where Are They Now? 2.0. I'd never seen Bridezillas before and, good grief, what is wrong with these women? How on earth can they possibly think behaving badly in front of television cameras could ever be a good idea?

I'm consistently less and less surprised by what people are willing to do in front of a television camera, or on a reality show, or on YT, or anywhere. Honestly, I have no interest in watching people act like fools or assholes or both and I dislike shows that highlight these... "qualities."

Your corn recipe sounds delish! Thanks :)

I'm not exactly surprised that people are doing this (there has to be a reward for it in there somewhere -- I know for shows like the People's Court, if there's judgment for the plaintiff, the show is the actual payer -- which means if you're the defendant and you think you really do owe the person for your transgression but have no money, you can exchange public humiliation for the release of your debt. And if the judge says you were right, well, at least you have the satisfaction of having someone agree with you) but I am somewhat horrified that there is an audience for people behaving badly. I'm honestly concerned we're witnessing the decline of civilization. I don't blame gays, democrats, libertarians, agnostics or atheists, in fact, I'm not sure who I blame. But I'm fairly certain that growing up watching self-centered people do whatever the hell they want on tv isn't doing anyone any good. And I really worry that kids watching the teen mom shows (which I have never seen, so take what I say with a pound or two of salt) will think they can have kids and the universe will magically provide for them and their offspring.
