CBS, reproduction, Gattaca

I am a CBS junkie. If I could only watch one show for the rest of my life, it would hands down be Big Brother. I could call myself an addict. Last year, when we had showtime 2, I would record Big Brother After Dark and fast forward through them sitting around in hopes of seeing some strategy they didn't show on TV. My dream job would be Julie Chen's. I think she's a fantastic interviewer. I already interview people, the only way to make that better would be to interview reality TV stars.

Recently, I also got into the Amazing Race. Survivor sucks, so CBS didn't get all reality shows right, but Amazing Race is awesome, too. This season, they threw Jeff and Jordan from Big Brother into the Amazing Race. I feel compelled to root for them, since they're from my favorite show. But Jordan is so stupid, it's hard to want to see her win after she already won Big Brother unjustly.

Today, I laughed out loud when Jeff tried the same thing incorrectly three times (I believe the definition of insanity), then realized how stupid he was and said, "we should never reproduce" to Jordan. Too bad it doesn't work like that. Too bad there isn't a way where a woman's egg won't accept a certain man's sperm if they're not compatible. If only. Can you imagine how much more balanced the human race would be? Maybe in the Gattaca days. Which speaking of, Steve and I might hold off reproducing until that technology is out. It would really be nice to be able to determine what gender child we would have. Wouldn't it? I know "I just want a healthy baby," blah blah. I just want a boy.
