I think a hilarious new series would be a spinoff of Extreme Makeover, where the contestants think they’re going to get plastic surgery and dental repairs; but when they get to the show, they get dropped off in really poor countries or disaster zones and have to help the inhabitants get fresh water and make enough food for their families. There will be wacky challenges where each contestant has a chance to win large sums of money. At the end of the show, after facing so much inequality in the world, the contestants get asked “do you still want to have an extreme makeover to make yourself superficially more beautiful?” and if they say yes, they get punched in the face, and all their collective prize money gets donated to the third world country. People who learned something from their experience and say “no” get to keep their money and face the inevitable guilt-inducing conundrum of whether they should donate it, too! No winners!

It’s both quaint and weird when old people discover technology. My Dad recently joined Facebook. I don’t think older people always understand social networking etiquette. The other day he was telling me how various family members were doing based on their facebook status. See? Quaint and weird. I wonder if, when we’re old, if we’ll end up being like them. Because they were young and cool once.    You know, like we are now. Geez, we gotta take more pictures while we are young and somewhat relevent. And while we’re on the topic of family, heres one of my favorite blogs ever. 

Also, my dad requested my friendship on FB and I havn’t accepted yet. Thats really what Thanksgiving is all about, right? Guilt.

Big Brother.

Surprisingly, the appearance of Big Brother close enough to my apartment to whisper sweet nothings into my ear, has had little to no effect on my less legal habits.  Weird.
