Friday Morning Shout Out

I don't watch MTV's "The Real World" anymore because the antics that go on these days end up pissing me off - a sure sign that I'm getting old and WAY out of the MTV demographic.

But I loved, loved, LOVED Melissa Howard, the half black/half filipino girl on the Real World New Orleans. I was so happy that MTV had a real filipino up on that show, and one that was funny and just acted just like how my cousins and I act when we get together. Yes, I identified with her. I loved her. Melissa's the shit.

And she has a blog. Well, I don't know if it can be considered a "blog" per se, it's more of a website with blog. Okay, so I guess it's a blog. Whatever.

Anyway, so Melissa recently updated it (she's very busy, you know) with an entry in which she talks about the Paula Abdul/Corey Whats-his-face "scandal," which then morphs into a whole soliloquy about how she just moved to Lawn Guyland to live with her boyfriend who's in a band but I don't know who he is.

She's funny as hell. Check out her website. And have a great weekend.

She would be soooo fun to go out with! I would just sit there, listen to her ramblings and my monthly entertainment quota would be fulfilled.
