I think a combination of the many TV shows I watch combined into this bizarre dream. John and I look forward to watching "The Soup" every Friday night. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, Joel McHale and his crew show clips from realty and talk shows during the week. One of the trashiest shows on television is "Rock of Love" with Brett Michaels, lead singer of the 80's glam-band, Poison. It gathers together the skankiest group of women (think strippers, porn stars, pole dancers, etc.) to walk the face of the earth, all vying for Brett's affection. (I don't really know what the end prize is; remember, I honestly just see the clips on "The Soup.") There's also this new Joss Whedon show debuting on Fox this week called "The Dollhouse" where a select group of women have their personalities made to order and than erased after the client is through with them.
Here we go. My father (yes, you can start laughing now since he is a patriarch) thought that it would be perfect if he used the personality technology of "The Dollhouse" to give me the trashiest of trashy women personalities to win over Brett Michaels' love and win the grand prize (and I still don't know what that is). So I was transformed and became part of the new cast. When it was our "date night," I took the opportunity to give him a piece of my mind including the following:
- Yes, I had a past where I was a pole dancer (and could dance with the best of them) and could do all sorts of other things, but I had risen above that and knew my potential as a daughter of God.
- Didn't he understand what he was subjecting these women to? The quoting of The Family: A Proclamation to the World began where I made sure that he knew what my divine role on earth was, and his too!
- How could he subject the world to this level of trashiness?
- Etc., etc., etc.
My father, from his living room, was banging on the tv screen shouting, "What are you doing? You are ruining this for all of us? How can you say these things?" He ran down to the "studio," demanding a refund on my personality change and had to be restrained by security. I, however, turned around, and stomped off, leaving Mr. Michaels completely dumbfounded.
This was hilarious! It still makes me laugh just thinking about it. I can't wait for the next episode of "The Soup" to see what my dreams bring!
