Snorts and oinks friends to a happy and wonderful Friday! I think my buddy Maxwell says it best in this video clip – bring on the weekend!
So today on this fine Friday, I wanted to ask you an important question. You see mom and dad were discussing their favorite shows on television last night and it got me to thinking. Why don’t I ask all of you my friends so that maybe we can highlight a show that someone else might want to watch. Makes sense huh?
So I’m going to start with our three favorite shows to watch here at the Hotel Thompson (in no particular order).
Mountain Monsters – Now this is a show that we didn’t watch right off when it came on the Destination American channel. But one night mom did and she has been hooked every since. The AIMS team (which stands for Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings) goes all over looking for monsters in the woods. AIMS was founded by team members Trapper John Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian. There is also Buck, Wild Bill and Huckleberry. Awesome names huh? They have done shows on everything from the Jersey Devil to the mysterious Bigfoot.
Investigative Discovery – Or as you may know and recognize it – the I.D. Channel. Anything that is related to murder is on the channel. And my mom – she considers herself an inspector in trying to figure out the show endings before the television tells you. It’s really interesting to see how people think they can “get away” with murder. Never a dull moment and trust me, you won’t be able to just watch ‘one’ show and leave. Oh no, you will be hooked!
Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Brothers and Dead Files – Okay I hooked all of these up in one posting because they all deal with the paranormal, the afterlife, the what bumps in the middle of the night and keeps you on your toes kind of television shows. Mom and dad both love this stuff and yeah I have to admit that it’s grown on me. I’m not as afraid of things in the middle of the night anymore. Houdini though – he’s another story.
So tell me my friends, what are your favorite shows?

Oh my friends! We here at the Hotel Thompson have been watching a new game show on television called Bullseye. It is hosted by Kellan Lutz – you know him from Twlight (he played Emmett Cullen) and co-hosted by Godfrey who is a comedian on the Godfrey Complex. This show is a combination of Wipe Out and Fear Factor.
It starts with 8 contestants (4 women and 4 men). They have to go through three challenges. By the beginning of the third challenge, they are down to 3 contestants to go up against each other to win $50,000! So you think it’s easy to play?
They have different challenges that I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks. One challenge had the contestants running down a MOVING train from the caboose to the engine. Along the ways, they were throwing off bullseye’s that were attached to the side of the train. Then they rushed to the front of the train and jumped off to hit the big bullseye to stop the train. Don’t worry – they were all tied so they wouldn’t fall off the train or jump to far in front of the train to stop it. But can you imagine doing this? The quickest one that got all of the bullseyes removed, won the $50,000. Not bad for a days work huh?
I’ve also seen it where they are attached to a cord hanging off of a helicopter. They are swung through the air and have to throw big bean bags towards a bullseye on the ground. They get two attempts and the closes bean bag to the bullseye target wins. Sound fun swinging through the air?
The show airs on the Fox channel on Wednesday nights at 9:00 PM. Mark your calendar to watch it this week. We highly recommend it here at the Hotel Thompson. In fact, I think I’m going to practice hitting some bullseye targets this week… where are those purr things to help me out? Snorts!

This is me in time out. Sighs. Mom says I have to pay the time for the crime. I don’t get it. I was just helping her out. You have to believe me on that. AND if you take my side after I tell you the story, then please write me a note to get me out of piggy jail in the comments. Will you do that my friends?
So this is what happened. We were all in the living room watching the ID channel. For those that don’t know what the ID channel is – ID stands for Investigative Discovery. They have ALL kinds of forensic shows of real crimes that take place from all over the world and how forensics solved them. On the show that we were watching, the victim was in a vegetative state and had a living will to be taken off of all life saving equipment if such a thing happened to her.
My mom was over on her chaise working on my laptop that was plugged into the wall. She had been pounding that keyboard for hours now. She was also drinking a glass of wine and had sat the glass on the floor. She told all of us – Mouse Girl, Hemi, Houdini and daddy, that if she was ever in a vegetative state, she didn’t want to be dependent on a machine or fluids from a bottle. She told us that if that happened, to pull the plug. She said that my friends.
I was just doing what she asked. I got up, unplugged her laptop and knocked over her glass of wine. I don’t think she thought I was helping her from her current vegetative state. Snorts. What say you?

You know I really need to speak with mom and dad about some of their activities. I think in some ways it’s just not fair that I can’t go ‘out and about’ with them on some of their adventures. I’m not green with the jealous monster – really I’m not. But I would like to meet some of these celebrities too. Even Bashful has gotten into the swing of things.
They were all out the other day and got to meet a famous celebrity that we often watch on the television. In fact, we sing the show tune a lot of the times, especially when we take baths. It’s just catchy and you can dance to it. What can I say? snorts
I hope you enjoyed the celebrity pictures. Have you ever met a celebrity? Who was it and where?
