Favourite Things – a few of them
To use common parlance, I’m loving One Tree Hill and so torn now between that and The OC. Mr Potato has not grown any humour tubors while he’s been away sadly. Also worried that, given my frail state of mind, the two story lines will merge and then where will I be? I think the parents in O.C are tastier than One Tree and I want their lives more, but the dad in One Tree is certainly a more fleshed out character. Anyway, when I was sixteen my mates’ dads were never like this.
Also liking The Great Love Swindle; I’m as intrigued by the actresses’ responses to their task as I am mesmerised by the fucking appalling characters that they have to go on dates with. (Guys have five dates with girls they’ve selected and have to get them to fall in love with them, only they don’t know the girls are actresses).
What sort of upbringing did these blokes have to make them such out and out pricks? The programme should interview the parents and find out what the hell they did to their kids to turn them into such monsters. These blokes delight in lying to women in order to screw them (yeah I know, they all do it) but it was so horrific, they reminded me of those foul Tory Boys in that Forty Minutes who shot seagulls and made total arseholes of themselves. Vile.
