Please stop messing with my shows

I need to have a whinge… why do TV stations insist on changing the night programs are on… seriously, we started watching because it was convenient, we weren’t watching at the other time slot because it wasn’t… this is not going to change because you would like it to! 

At the moment I am hooked on the biggest loser, which is strange for me… I love reality TV so that’s not the bit that is strange, but usually I have to turn the biggest loser off because it is filled with terrible nutritional advice and sets crazy weight loss expectations which are not maintainable or in some cases even achievable, which usually makes me so mad that I yell at the TV and the channel is switched by someone else to shut me up.  But this season has me hooked, I think it’s the combination of reality TV with the hope of love… I know it sounds corny, but I think that is what has me hooked. 

Now because my life is filled with more than just TV, I couldn’t watch it every night, but I did enjoy watching it most Monday nights, which coincidently was the best night to watch because it was weigh in and elimination night… the best bit.  But in channel 10’s lack of wisdom, they have decided after weeks, maybe even months of Monday nights they are moving it, well have moved it to Sunday night… this makes me mad… why?  Because Sunday nights don’t work for me, I am busy on Sunday nights and I will not skip church just because the biggest loser is on, regardless of what the promos promise.  Surely I am not the only one in this situation? Perhaps it’s not church on Sunday night, but maybe something else, perhaps even another program… you can’t just change things channel 10… It’s just not right! 

Look, I know there are more important things in life than what night biggest loser is on TV, but it made me really mad so I had to let it out… now it’s out and I can now go and watch the copy that Davo taped for me (well DVD’d) for me last night… but channel 10… consider yourself warned.  

Turns out… I’m a Trekky

Day 7: Say how much you love

I have a confession to make… it’s about an interest of mine that is often shunned by the ‘cool’ people of the world, but I feel like ‘say how much you love’ is an invitation to just bare it all and let it out… haters come at me because… I don’t really care. Ok are you ready… here it is…

I love Star Trek… a lot.

I know it’s not the coolest thing in the world to be passionate about, but I can’t help it, in fact for a long time I shunned my own brothers (who I just told you how much I love) for liking such a ridiculous show… but I am hooked…  And let’s face it… I was never going to be the coolest person in the world.  The thing is I feel like confessing this is like confirming what I already know in my heart… and what I have tried to keep from the world for so long…  I am a full on nerd… but you know what… now that it’s out there… it turns out I am ok with it… and this love of all things Star Trek is just something else to add to my random and somewhat eclectic list of interests.  I mean there probably aren’t that many other people in the world that can say they their interests include:

Country music,
Anything Disney,
Watching the V8 supercars
Zumba
Big Brother
Star Trek and
Trying new breakfast places

And that’s just a few… It’s a pretty random collection, but it’s just another thing that makes me who I am, slightly odd, but easy to get along with (secondary to a versatile range of interests), girl… And even though it’s weird… I love it all, and i’m sure this is just the beginning of a whole list of random interests still to come.

Live long and prosper.

I’m Dreaming of a White Chirstmas…

It’s snowing on my blog… yep snowing… why because it’s the only way an Australian girl like me can have a white Christmas… Don’t get me wrong I love having a hot Christmas… when the weather decides to do it’s bit, but I guess being a sucker for all things fairytale like the idea of a white Christmas is a bit magical!

So I just thought I would write this little post so that you could all come here and enjoy the white Christmas too…

Try Hard Anthropologist

So my last blog was all about how I was going to be more honest with this new blog, let you into who I am am and what makes me tick… we I have had my first challenge with this.

This week I found out some news that I am very excited about… no I am not pregnant… just in case you went straight to that… No, this news is much less serious, but perhaps a lot more embarrassing. This week I found out that big brother is set to return in 2012. (Well according to this article at the herald sun anyway).

Anyway, this isn’t the first time I have blogged about big brother… in fact way back when they were in lots of trouble for being a little naughty, i felt I needed to blog, but what I failed to mention in the that blog was the fact that I loved big brother… and I mean loved it, like I would follow their daily activities via the website loved it!  I have been a secret fan for a long time… and I guess that’s not so secret now, and in fairness to myself, the height of my addiction was while I was at uni and really had way too much free time on my hands… but I am not going to lie… I am very very very excited that it is coming back.

I think what draws me in the most is that I love to watch people… I guess that’s why I like the blogs that I do, I like to know how people work, why they do the things that they do. How they interact with each other. Perhaps I should have been an anthropologist so that I could watch all day everyday, but I am not… So instead I do it as a hobby.  Although, sometimes it gets me in trouble because I tend to stare at people, couples, families, whoever, especially while I am on holidays where I am away from those I know, and apparently, according to Dave, I am not very subtle.  In fact just this morning inbetween my patients at clinic I found it very interesting to observe from the safety of my offive how many people would use the single toilet despite the fact that the light doesn’t work in there.  Of the 4 people I noticed heading to the toilet 3 chose to go in the dark… only one went to the toilet next door which has a light that was already on… crazy… who goes to the toilet in the dark?  Granted the other toilet has a disabled and baby change label on the front… but seriously… in the dark… that’s just asking for trouble.

Anyway, I guess the point I am trying to make is that big brother makes this little personality quirk of mine acceptable, whether that’s right or wrong. It actually provides an opportunity for me to just watch and not get ‘caught’. Actually now that I am typing it out it sounds kind of creepy, but its not… its all above board so to speak, and I am still excited about it’s return…
