She was my dream, my muse. A vision suitable for the wide-screen format. I can still taste her fist against my face. The sweet sugary sweat from a lifetime of diabetes. A heartbeat you could hear from six blocks away. One big pump every hour.

I don't care if she's got her own TV show or not. That little girl has no business wearing high heels. What they do to an adult's feet is bad enough, but she's a child whose feet are still growing. She needs to be wearing footwear that's appropriate for a child.

What's the thing with high heels, anyway? They seem... pointless.

Not just pointless, but very bad for a person's feet. Some women wear them to make them appear taller or more elegant, or both.

Researchers found that regular outings in high heels shorten the fibers in women's calf muscles and can change the position of joints and muscles in the feet. They can permanently change the way women walk and put them at greater risk of strain injuries,

High heels put your feet in a pointed down position, placing an increased amount of pressure on your forefoot. This causes you to adjust the rest of your body to maintain your balance. The lower part of your body leans forward and to compensate for that, the upper part of your body must lean back to keep you balanced. This is not your body's normal standing position.

And earing high heels causes lumbar spine flattening and a posterior displacement of the head and thoracic spine. High heel shoes cause you to lean forward and the body's response to that is to decrease the forward curve of your lower back to help keep you in line. Poor alignment may lead to muscle overuse and back pain.

I thought Steve Martin's old short story "Cruel Shoes" was bizarre, nonsensical, and downright horrifying when I read it as a child. Then I became a man and actually met adult women and realized it is essentially a slice-of-life tale for your standard female with any sense of style.

Based on the most recent episode with the lemonade and "sketti" made with a delightful homemade sauce of 1 tub Country Crock to 1 bottle of Generic Ketchup I see a restaurant empire - complete with cooking show and line of cookware -- in the mother's future.

She can call it DiaBESTes!

And no, I'm not kidding. My wife watches the show. If you'll excuse me I'm off to create a match.com account.

There are 2-3 million people dumb enough to watch this shiat. I venture to say that a percentage of that number are dedicated enough fans to part with their hard earned cash in order to experience the thrill of staying in and or becoming a part of McIntyre for a short while and leaving a chunk of change doing so. Rather than biatch about how it makes you look, cash in while the cashing is good.

The latest trainwreck in a long line of trainwrecks. Trolling with freaks is the only way these cable channels even stay in business any more.

Remember when:

The Learning Channel showed documentaries about science?
The Discovery Channel was about science?
The Sci-Fi Channel had science fiction?
MTV had music?


27 channels of phony "reality" now. All staged, all ad-lib acted, all Jerry Springer without the moderator or the studio audience.

Ulgh. "Bless your heart" does not always mean "Aww, you're so stupid/pathetic, it's sweet." It depends on the context. For example. I've heard it used for those in mourning after the death of a loved one: "She just lost her husband, bless her heart."

Well, I guess the meaning changes in different parts of the country. Because where I'm from, when my family and friends say it, the meaning depends on the context.

Quoting a caller from a local radio station "This little girl is going to have a rude awakening when she enters the real world and finds out she isn't as cute as her mom thinks she is." Children should be loved/supported and all that other good stuff. These parents are raising a trophy wife who ain't going to have the looks (judging by looking at her Mom) to pull it off.

I will absolutely not apologize for saying that the fiance and I love the hell out of this show. And though I get where the criticism comes from, I disagree with it wholeheartedly. Unlike the Real Housewives of City X, Wife Swap, and all that other crap, the family on Honey Boo Boo seem to actually care about each other, and they appear to be decent folks. Best of all, you can tell (or at least I can, anyway) that everytime the mom is on camera and does something dumb, she's fully aware of what she's doing. And she's laughing all the way to the bank.

I think reality tv can be a cesspool, and TLC's among the worst offenders. But this is good television.

I used to sell shoes in my naive youth, and was threatened with being fired when I told a customer all of that information once. It was right after a company footwear training seminar that taught us that information in the first place.

Ah, profits over customer service. I'm glad the company is going out of business these days.

eh, they just don't come across to me like a lot of those other look-what-we-make-our-kids-do tv families. They don't yell at the kid for not wanting to "practice" (however the hell you practice for being in a pageant), they don't make it clear that they're living vicariously through her, and they don't act like winning is the only reason for their existence. It just seems to me like they're having fun.
