Unreal world

I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but I am hooked on the real world. I find myself watching it every time it’s on, even if I’ve seen it before. Oh man, what has become of me?! This is not my first exposure to it either. Back when the very first show happened (we are going back many years now), I scoffed at it, yet one day while my then girlfriend (aka: the ex-wife) was at class while I was visiting her in the poison town, they had one of those all day marathons on, and since I had already exhausted the 3 things in that town to do (one record store, garcia’s pizza and playing video games in the union and at space port), I started watching it. And watching it. And watching it. I spent the entire day watching it from start to end. The whole season in a day. In fact, I think when she got back, I told her we had to stay in so I could see what happens. Luckily, I was able to escape its hold after that first season, and only watch it here and there when there was absoultely nothing else on TV. But then I started watching the one that was in Chicago, mainly because it was from my city, and I wanted to see if they went to potbellys and reckless records, of which they did neither. But now, they have this vegas one, chock full of everyone sleeping with each other and all getting drunk all the time, and I just can’t stop watching! Someone save me!



  • All the booze on earth wouldn’t even make me want anna nicole, but I have to admit, I can’t help but watch her show too!

  • It’s like a car accident, or a train wreck – you want to stop and stare, but the civilised thing to do is to just keep driving…of course I should talk…I got hooked on the bachelor…but only because it was so purely hilarious every time some stupid girl got kicked to the kerb and the crying and drama and “but I luuuuurve him, we’re meant to be together” would ensue – pure comedy gold…all over this jackass who was such a complete plank it was not to be believed.

  • If I stopped to watch that show too, I’d probably get sucked in. I have to avoid the TV sometimes to keep from adding more shows to my schedule of TV watching!

  • The new one premiers tonight – and a friend of mine suspects a co-worker of hers is a contestant, as she recently returned from a mysterious leave of absence…I may have to watch…
