A blog is born.
Welcome to my musings on pop culture and parenting. I am the Pop Mama and this is a safe place to steal away from your screaming child and get your fix on what's up with Beyonce and great poop stain remover tips.

I just happened upon a marathon of the The Secret Life of the American Teenager on ABC Family -- I know, I know, what the hell was I doing that I tuned into ABC Family.  Curiosity people.  Has anyone else ever seen this show?  I have seen a few episodes before and basically it is Seventh Heaven but the teens on this show are either having sex, talking about it or railing against it 24/7.  Two of the female characters are pregnant teens (well, to be fair, one already had her baby) and everyone is always talking about getting married --there is NO mention of college.  I'm not even kidding.  The characters on this show cannot have a scene without the word "sex" or some variation of it being spoken oh, about 100 times.  I CANNOT TAKE IT!  But strangely, I keep watching it.  I mean, it is NOT going on my DVR schedule or anything, but give me a few loads of laundry to fold, a napping 13 month old and no work emails to respond to and I will take this over Dr. Phil any day. 

There should be a drinking game - albeit for seriously deranged and prime time starved peeps - that goes like this...take a drink every time someone on the show says the word sex or some variation of it.  This will be more of a drinking challenge than hour of power, plus you will get to crack up at seriously AWFUL writing and plot lines.  Win Win. 

Apparently this show is in its 3rd or 4th season...WTF?  Who is the audience?  I would DEFINITELY not let one of my children watch this show, unless they were over 21 and we were playing the Secret Life drinking game together. 

I also found a new blog that I would highly recommend reading -- it is the blog that I would write if I didn't fear future job prospects and what my great aunts would think.  I love this blog so much that I feel like I should be hired as this girl's PR agent.  Just check it out and you will understand what I am talking about ...www.2birds1blog.com.  I recommend reading the "Fan Favorite" posts.  But don't forget who referred you...keep visiting me too! 

Later skaters.
