A rather eventful week for me in that I am under the doctor as some of my aged relatives put it, despite my Sid James style cackling at their choice of words. I have been diagnosed with the worlds most boring illness and forbidden to work or do anything remotely stressful. To that end I've stopped watching the news, reading newspapers or books that aren't funny so if civil war breaks out over the next two weeks and I'm merrily blogging away about oven gloves you'll know why.
To that end I've taken to watching Big Brother as of this evening. It's hardly challenging viewing but even it has me asking questions. There are a number of things that puzzle me about that show. I suppose there are lots of serious concerns raised by such a show and what it says about society but sadly I'm not allowed to think about them. So I will restrict my self to my fascinating thoughts on more trivial matters.
It's bothered my for a few series now but is it normal for a young lady to drape herself all over a chap she doesn't fancy? Every time I look at that program there's some scantily clad bird hanging off a plooky and bewildered youth but claiming to like him as a friend. I may just move in unusually austere social circles but my male chums and I maintain a civilised distance. Good God! Could you imagine the poor illman's distress if I came lurching at him in my underwear in a display of mateyness. Of course you can't -it is unthinkable.
When I was still glancing at the papers I noticed that there seemed to be a general consensus that the contestants were the most freakish assortment yet with particular mention being made of the woman with the giant plastic tits. Pah! Maybe being a newly diagnosed mentalist makes one more imaginative but are giant silicone tits really all that freakish anymore? If you've seen one set you've seen them all. If she'd had a surgically enhanced giant leg or a really big eye, then yes I'd I agree she was freakish. A really big eye would be good. Imagine it looking out the telly saying 'like me' and following you round the room. Chilling but fun.
