Tis mine, so come and play, please? Attention = love, as we all know.
Um. On to the question. As I said, some comments in a previous post got me thinking about guilty pleasures. Mine at the time was American Idol, and is now, quite frankly, stalking Adam Lambert on the internetz. But that's not the only one. And it's also not important right now. Ahem.
Overriding that, or riding alongside it more accurately, is my fairly recent obsession with reality TV. Not all reality TV. I have never, for example, watched an episode of The Hills _ I truly, truly don't get that one.
But I do watch Survivor. And The Amazing Race. And Hell's Kitchen. And Top Model, Project Runway, Top Chef ... I could go on.
Why, you may ask. Well, for one thing, I love TV. I really, truly do. That shiny box in the corner is the soulmate of the tiny, dark, venal part of myself that celebrates when Bad Things happen to characters on TV shows. I can't help it. Most of the time, I'm a nice person, I think. I work hard, I'm a good Mum and try to be a good wife. But TV brings out the worst in me. And you know what? I like it.
Oh, and if you happen to watch reality TV as well, please, please ... no spoilers. We are literally a year behind with some shows here.
Happy Weekly Geeks, everyone. What scratches your dark side?
