It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...at Aloyd's house

I am so excited to tell you about our new project. It's no secret how much I love Christmas. I mean I think I've made it abundantly clear that if Christmas were a person, I would marry it and have its babies.

My sister, Meg and Sharda also love Christmas. Aloyd, knowing this fact, asked us to help him. Help him with what, you ask? Well he recently purchased a condo. A bachelor pad if you will. He has no Christmas decorations, and he doesn't really like Christmas. I know, you guys. He has other great qualities so I remain friends with him in spite of this flaw. Anyway, he came to us with this proposition: "If I give you guys money, would you be interested in decorating my place? Like I would pay, you would buy all the stuff and put it up?".

Um...is the Pope Catholic? Does a bear shit in the woods? Is Okay Seriously dreaming about Salt and Vinegar Pringles and Cherry Coke 22 out of 24 hours a day? YES!!

This is literally the greatest project I have ever been asked to work on. And we decided that it would make an awesome show on HGTV. People would need help with their decorating and in we would come. And it doesn't have to be just Christmas. It can be any holiday year round.

Sunday we went to Aloyd's house for our initial consultation. We wanted to get a better feel for his place, his style and his budget. Also we wanted to make him listen to Christmas music.

Here's the best and worst part. Drew came with us and taped us. For real. We had to pretend we were hosts and everything. Meg was a natural. But we almost had a group falling out when it appeared Meg was trying to take over the show for herself. But it's all okay now. I was horrible. I couldn't stop laughing or swearing. I think I would be a more effective TV host if I was drunk. What makes this whole thing even more sad is that we don't have a video camera. We had to use Diane's digital camera and take a series of 30 second videos.

We then went shopping and took the camera with us. When we told the checkout lady what we were doing she said it was the best idea ever. Then we put her on video. It was awesome. She told us to call her when we make it big so she can record herself on TV. The checkout lady believes in us, you guys!

We still have a lot of shopping left to do, but so far this is the most fun. I am certain we can turn Aloyd into a Christmas lover. And ourselves into HGTV stars. You guys would totally watch our show, right?

Only if I can turn your show into a drinking game...like everytime Meg upstages Sharda...drink. Everytime Diane rolls her eyes at you...drink. Everytime you break something in the host's home...drink. Then I'd watch. -Steph

I think it's time you blog about something other than TV.

Ok, so where can we see the video??

For starters, Anonymous, I think it's time you did something other than suck.

Um, if I don't get to see that video, there's going to be repercussions.

I'm thinking y'all should make a go of this! Hell, start a business for people who don't have the want or time to decorate for the holidays. You could charge a fee and make $$ while having the best time!

Seriously, you should think about it. If some matchmaker in Buffalo with the shittiest office can get on TV, you gals could own a network! Way more interesting and less bitching. :)

anonymous, I bet you're just jealous that she HAS TIME to watch tv. I know I am.

I vote for an OKS channel on YouTube.

Anon, um...no.

Everyone else, this show is going to rule. I forgot to mention that it was also going to be a drinking show. Like a cross between an HGTV show and Three Sheets.

I would totally watch.

And also, I am slightly panicked about the writers' strike.
