Okay, I goofed. I'm only an addict to one reality show. Upon consultation with Husby, the other shows I like would not be classed as 'Reality TV' It's a glorious three weeks though. Others I really love but don't *have* to watch every week are Strictly Come Dancing and Come Dine With Me. The snarky commentary in the latter is enough to put anyone into hysterics and swear never to host a dinner party EVER, just in case the voiceover guy turns up to critique.
The main problem (as far as I can tell from my friends' and my own experience) is that as soon as you join the club and announce your infertility, everyone seems to be pregnant. Even the blokes. There's an odd dichotomy as I feel that I should try very hard not to hide this issue and sweep it under the carpet (one of the things I've noticed most is how much this seems to be the case, with lots of pussy-footing around the subject, calling it 'involuntarily childless' and things like that) but I also feel that I should do my best to celebrate with these new Mamas and try to be glad for them...without rubbing their face in it or making them feel guilty. I'm sure there's a balance to be had somewhere, I just haven't found it yet, but hey - I'm new at this; I've the rest of my life to learn.
new favourite song this week is by Reef. It's sung in a *ahem* unique vocal style, which isn't the point. I LOVE the bass-line. It's a funky, trippy little tune and works really well, even if I want to offer the lead singer a Halls Soother once he's done.
P.S. If anyone's
Later edit - 10,000 brand new Ossum Points to Deltaflute, who had the answer. I think. Or at least, she inspired me to do something clicketty that worked.
Perhaps if he does eat the spider I’ll just keep him instead. Arachnids seem much sulkier by comparison.
The knowledge that, although I can watch all the episodes again, I’ve parted company with new and exciting events in the characters’ lives, is sad (on both levels). I was so upset about the prospect of having to watch to the end of M*A*S*H that as yet I’ve not committed to buying the final series so I don’t have to face it. At least I know I’m not alone – it’s common knowledge that the US pretty much closed when the show aired its final episode.
