Mojitos and Mommie Porn

I can only imagine the google hits this post will get. Aptly titled, this blog post showcases my typical evening after the kids go to bed, after the laundry is finished, the lunches are packed for the next school day, and after I am able to sit and do nothing important.

I admit my weaknesses. I love me some of the Real Housewives. To me, this is pure fantasy. It is a lifestyle of nothing close to reality, so it is fair to call it what it is.... Mommie Porn.

I know that it is made for television. I understand that it is not truly a reality show, because when you have cameras rolling, a producer, editing, and an agenda, it is ACTING. Call it what you want. Soap Opera? Reality show? Mommie Porn? I love it all the same.

The latest housewives hail from the Miami area. These ladies are all about the mojitos and the money. What is not to adore? When in Rome, huh? While it is freezing and grey here, tuning in to see palm trees, short dresses and sandals is downright delightful. Besides, I might actually learn something. Doubtful, but you never know.

With that, I have spent about 37 minutes tonight curled up with the remote control, the DVR recording and a fresh, delicious and relaxing, mojito. In my fantasy world, the shows are recorded and the commercials are by passed. I can sip my cocktail, unwind in front of the screen and pretend I am in a tropical land.

Here is my mojito recipe:

12 mint leaves
3 TBS sugar
3 limes juiced and cut in pieces
1 C white rum
soda

Muddle the all the ingredients (except soda) together in a tall shaker with crushed ice or small ice cubes. Add soda and stir.
Pour into a tall glass and sip with a straw.

Mojitos and Mommie porn, there is no shame in my game. And there ain't nothing wrong with it.

Oooh me too! I love those housewives and here in the UK I'm currently taping both the Orange County and Beverly Hills shows! You American ladies sure know how to live it up. Aren't you all like that....?!!

I was (and currently am again) hooked on the OC Housewives. Then when Bev Hills came on, I got hooked on it. And now, Miami...I just cant seem to get in to. I don't know why. The lady's mom who is on there scares the bejeesus out of me. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about.

I'll keep watching though ;) It's my nice getaway once the trio go down. I've never had a mojito, though. I'd never make it on one of those shows. I mean, hello, you never see one drinking Miller Lite!

Beverly Hills is still my fave too, but I am a equal opportunity hater
