Survivor: Gabon Starts Tonight

I am a true Survivor groupie, I am thrilled that the new season is starting with a 2 hour season premiere-even though the first few episodes usually are slow. When Elena told me it was Survivor 17-it threw me-I know I am getting old, but knew it hadn't been on for 17 years-so I "googled" it and came up with the first year, one season and then 2 shows a season every year since then-8 years now-hard to believe.

So now you know, if it's Thursday night, don't call from 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM cause I'm not answering.

As for getting old, I thought yesterday was Thursday and was running around like a madwoman, made dinner early, did dishes, Elena showered and in PJ's and at 7:45 PM Elena looked at me and asked "Why are you rushing like this?"-one answer "Survivor"-her answer was "Mom, today is WEDNESDAY, did you not look at the calendar? Don't you check the TV listings on Comcast On-Demand?"-of course I didn't realize and no, I don't check the TV listing because frankly I watch TV on Monday nights, now Wednesday night, since they added two comedies and Thursday nights and that's it-besides, I don't know how the hell to use the remote for On-Demand or anything-I leave that up to my 8 (and 3/4) year old!

I always think it can't possibly have been on for this long too, even 8 years seems like too many. I totally want to watch this season and while we'll miss tonight's episode I'm hoping they'll replay it on Sunday so we won't miss all the intros.

I'm ashamed to admit this Deneen....

But I have never, EVER watched one episode of Survivor.

I know, I know....I'm pitiful

I love the show. I recorded the show because I wanted to watch to many shows at the same time. It was great. I cant understand after so many years of watching the show the contestants dont dress better. Why would you wear a dress no matter how good you are? I am glad the girl who felt everyone was dumb got voted off.
