I have been blessed with a lovely wife. My lovely wife has three sisters. Also within driving distance, there's my 81-year-old mother-in-law. And of course my two beautiful, funny, eye-rolling teenage daughters.

Oh, and a dog, Nellie. Can't forget her.

That makes me the official Mayor of Estrogenopolis.

And it explains why if you check the playlist on my TIVO, you will find the complete catalogue of Hannah Montana, an inexplicable number of shows about cakes, cake-making and the people who make cakes, and of course So You Think You Can Dance.

I don't need to do a whole rant about the judge who screams like a banshee, suffice to say I'd like to see her body dropped from a Sikorsky S92 and impaled on Seattle's Space Needle.

But I do think she has inspired a new standard in the construction/home building industry.

Next time I remodel my house and the contractor asks how much insulation I'd like behind the drywall, I will tell him, "I want the walls, the floors and the ceilings to be completely MaryMurphyProof."

I live nearby Estrogenopolis in New Contentionville. It's slightly hotter here but we have the beach.

I have 2 stepdaughters. My boyfriend has two daughters. When my parents divorced, my father married a woman with two daughters. And my mother married a man with two daughters. When I saw my son's equipment on the ultrasound, it was one of the happiest days of my life. BTW, no wedding shows on the TIVO? No Bridezillas?

Oh yes, they are major fans of Bridezillas. in fact, my youngest walks around quoting one of the Bridezilla bridesmaids, who at one point said,
"Levitrias, I'm don wif it."
