Don't Forget!!

Don't forget to set your TiVo's, or VCR's, or whatever you may have. Extreme Makeover: Welfare Edition will be on tonight!!

Be sure to write out a check to help them pay off the first mortgage, too. Dip into your gas fund if you have to, by God.

Yeah, you can call me an asshole (tell me something I don't know), but I am still trying to figure out what made this family so exceptional that they had to have a half a million dollar house, completely furnished, built for them. I've seen some really deserving families on this show, but this KC family doesn't strike the same chord. My best friend's family took in five kids when her brother lost custody of them. In fact, they are adopting all of them, in addition to the kids they already have AND holding down full time jobs. I don't see ABC knocking down their door. This family did what most normal, loving families would do: they take care of their own.

My point being, there's lots of people out there more deserving.

I'm starting to get a headache from all the eye rolling. If I didn't have to work tonight, I'd probably watch midget porn instead.

Hear hear! I'm with you. My landlady had NO IDEA that the first mortgage wasn't paid or that they actually had to *gasp* pay for the new house's taxes and the taxes on the vehicles. Wake up, people!
