I spent some time over the weekend indulging in a guilty pleasure, watching episodes of "Dirty Jobs." It's one of my favorite time wasters, and while it has been known to seriously gross me out at times, there is something about Mike Rowe that pulls me into the show and keeps me coming back for more. Maybe if it is his voice - which is so incredible I find myself even enjoying Ford commercials. Maybe it is fearless attitude - it seems like he'll try anything. Maybe because even my worst day at work can't measure up to the jobs he tries. Maybe it is just the fact that it involves very little thought on my part and yet isn't quite as embarrassing to admit to enjoying as some of the other reality shows out there.
Am I the only one out there who has a bit of a crush on Mike Rowe? Have you ever wasted several hours on episodes of "Dirty Jobs?"
Speaking of crushes, after all these years I still have one on Bono.
