I just can't quit DWTS - OR CAN I? (I totally can't.)  
I took a fairly thorough off-season for DWTS, meaning that I've watched/read/blogged next to nothing about the All-Stars Season that is currently airing on the East Coast (YOU BASTARDS, GETTING EVERYTHING BEFORE US INCLUDING DWTS AND ALSO SUNSHINE). I was even thinking, given the overwhelmingly awesome commitments of sparktober and NaNo that overlap with the fall season of Dancing With the Stars, that I might do crazy things like not even watch live so I can go to bed before 10 pm (haha) or at least watch casually like a normal viewer (errr) or at least not devote huge chunks of time and emotional energy to SPARKLE LUST (...).

Problem: I really love doing DWTS recaps/spams/orgyfic/crack reporting! (Or it's a horrible, horrible addiction from which I cannot escaaaape.) So it's hard to resist the idea that I could do it allllll. I mean, I pretty successfully compartmentalized last year during sparktober, but this year I'm trying out this new mental health program called "sleeping" and "not being high on sparklevision until 2 a.m. clicking refresh on ontheredcarpet waiting for the post-show interviews to turn up."

(Note: this would totally not even be a question if Hines Ward were on the All-Stars and I could be analyzing minute-by-minute UST/RST potential between him and Mrs. Ward Kym Johnson. If that were happening I'd be turning up at your doorsteps every Monday night demanding that you call in and vote so I could have one more week of TasselRomance.)

Those are my feels. I'm curious, what are yours?

Do you watch Dancing With the Stars?

YES OMG YES.

DWTS is a real thing? I thought you just made that up and were letting us in on your spray-tanned hallucinations.

Your feels on whether I should resist the urge to compulsively liveblog/blog/turn my journal into a sparkly flailing mess of glitter and sequins:

YES PLEASE. I NEED IT TO LIVE.

Totes want it, but with less hysteria than option #1!

If it interferes with Sparktober/NaNo I will *beat you.* [substitute "I will look at my computer monitor a little bit disapprovingly" if *beat you* is too much hyperbole for you.]

I vote "sleeping" and "learning to watch TV shows with a sense of dispassionate amusement" and "not depending on glitter for one's very survival."

While I approve of both dancing and glitter, I'm afraid the vast majority of reality television holds no actual appeal for me.

Well, except for stuff like Mythbusters and Dirty Jobs because, c'mon!

But, hey, if glitter and tassels make you happy, go to it! You don't complain when I continue babbling about Giant Robots and Ponies, after all.

That's because those two shows hold actual information and not...well, yeah...

You have NO PROOF that I'm not considering an exciting career in spray-tanning.

That is a correct statement. Just look at Jersey Shore. On second thought...let's not.

Giant robots and ponies are almost as awesome as DWTS! DWTS is just the eeeeeensiest bit awesomer from my POV because sometimes hot dancer boys take their shirts off. And by sometimes, I mean all the time.

EDIT: THEN I CHANGED MY MIND BECAUSE PONIES. I received a "Fashion Style" Rainbow Dash as a gift and she has a pimpin' warmup jacket and hilarious winged shoes. My sister was like "... Rainbow Dash would not wear that." PRETTY SURE SHE WOULD, AND IS WEARING THAT ON MY BOOKSHELF RIGHT NOW.
