This Is: My Reality Show

This week's This Is... topic was chosen by Insomniac Lolita. She decided to go with a Reality Show theme. What would I call it, where would I film it, theme song, and so on :o)
Let me just say that there are oh so many reasons why I need my own reality show.
I've been pondering it all week, and the few styles that I came up with were:
Parenting, How To, Stupid Things People Do, If Kids Ran The House, Random Thoughts, The Real Life of Me.
So many choices. I found this topic to be rather difficult. I've often thought my life was crazy enough to turn into a Reality Show, but never really pondered the specifics.

I think I'd probably end up going with The Real Life of Me. My theme song would be ABC by the Jackson 5, and my intro would feature a series of pictures of me & the fam on a backdrop of a map of North America. Picture chalk outlines and scribbles there too to highlight each picture. It would also have sound effects, like real life SHOULD be. *boink boink* for blinks, and gulping noises, along with some funky chopping sound when we walk. You get the idea. It would frequent music whenever we begin to think, and feature flashbacks to go with. Each time I snicker or giggle the audience would get a cue to laugh. They'd get the cue to clap whenever we do something mediocre. Intense music would play when I tangle to get the stupid bags out of the truck without spilling anything. Slow-motion would come into play whenever I nearly drop something, or whenever the kids throw something at us.
I think each episode could consist of one day out my week, or quite possible a montage to explain why the f*** I'm so tired all the time. I honestly don't picture it being filmed all in one location cause I do love to travel so much, but I like the idea of either hand drawn backdrops or just pictures of the backdrops enlarged. Like I'd be in front of a green screen or something. I think I'd enjoy something along the lines of separated images and animation being fused together here.
The show itself would center around me, and the choices I make, and how humanly rateable they'd make me.
I think it would even be cool if people could vote for my choice for me. I've often wondered if others were in control of my life if it wouldn't suck as bad as it does sometimes.
"IF YOU WANT AMBER TO GO WITH THE STEAK AND NOT THE CHICKEN TEXT OR CALL YOUR VOTE INTO 3256 NOW!"
or how about "SHOULD AMBER IMMIGRATE TO THE USA OR MOVE HER KIDS TO ANOTHER COUNTRY ENTIRELY? BE SURE TO TUNE IN & FIND OUT NEXT WEEK..."
It'd be pretty cool.
Did I mention I'd love it to have a Classic Rock song base? You know everyone would laugh their asses off each week. I'd give all those prime timers a run for their money...honest.
