Not Gonna Do It

After careful thought and consideration, I have decided not to blog the 20th season of The Amazing Race for the following reasons:

#1 Brendon
#2 Rachel
#3 Brendon and Rachel, the entity
#4 Brendon and Rachel's wretched fans
#5 The cackles. My god, the cackles!

It's no secret that I have been dreading the upcoming season of The Amazing Race since last September and that dread has only grown exponentially over time. I don't even want to watch TAR let alone devote upwards of 40 hours writing about it. I know how I am and I know that I'll hate every minute of covering this latest installment. So, for my own sanity and well being, I'm going to pretend the 20th season of The Amazing Race doesn't exist and perhaps I'll see you back here for season 21.

My deepest apologies if this upsets any of you, but wasting that many hours doing something I'll despise makes no sense to me. Instead, I'll burn cigarettes into my legs or scratch the corneas of my eyes with razor blades. The fun factor of either of those activities greatly exceeds any amount of joy I'll ever manage to squeeze out of The Amazing Race. In the meantime, I can be found over at the Bitchy Survivor Blog where the cast doesn't make me want to hurl myself onto a rusty spike.
