My youngest and I have been battling a nasty cold all week and my stupid wrist injury is giving me trouble, so I haven't been on my computer much, to blog or otherwise.
I have been working on my 'butt dent' in the couch by watching lots and lots of TV. Mostly junk, but there is the occasional good show or movie. Last night I watched one of my very favorites, The Amazing Race. I don't know if any of you all watch, but if you do, I bet you will agree that it is time for the goth couple to go.
I have been increasingly irritated with them. It started when the girl had a meltdown during a relatively simple challenge and has snowballed to lots of deception and shady behavior. I realize people are competing for a million dollar prize, but I would like to think that my ethical self doesn't have a selling point.
I hoped they would get eliminated last night, but instead the Chinese-American father-daughter team got the boot. Just as well, the girl was great but her father was obnoxious and irritating, too. I think his most annoying trait was trying to eat in the middle of challenges all the time, talk about an inability to prioritize. Hmmmm....beginning to wonder why I watch.
I guess it is all of the neat places they travel and all of the interesting challenges- making cow poop patties to fuel fires was a particularly nasty one last night. And, not all of the contestants are annoying.
I used to watch Survivor, but I got sick of all the back-stabbing, sniping and gossiping. If I found that interesting, I would go back to high school. That being said, I would never, ever be able to compete on Survivor.
Even if I were willing to be so filthy and tired, I would likely be the first contestant to throttle someone. The only thing worse than being stranded on an island would be being stranded with a bunch of people. Shocking that I don't care for people, I know.
Here's hoping for a quiet week of recuperation and good TV.
