I could blog today about how I miserably, most likely, failed my Microbiology test last night (and by fail, I mean probably in the C range). But I would like to discuss something much more light-hearted...What may become my new favorite TV show. Top Designer on Bravo. There are two particular characters I absolutely hate and yet, I'm sure, will absolutely LOVE to watch in the coming episodes, that is, if their personalities will allow them to stay on. I'm surprised they weren't booted off on this first episode.
John, a 40 year old from Chicago who has one enormous chip on his shoulder. But gotta admire a guy who was told he couldn't and he did, then sold the company to the guy who said he couldn't. He was a do it yourself, no nonsense kind of guy who probably does not work well with others....or at least those are the clips you saw. Not quite sure if he's gay or not, he did compare himself to George Michael, but then pretty much called most of the other guys pansies. And, gasp, wore a Hawaiian shirt and flip flops.
Michael, most definitely GAY, is a 23 year old who was raised on an organic farm, turned big city designer and squeals like a little girl when asked to paint. He has perfected eye rolling to a new art form. As a mom of eye-rollers, I wanted to reach through that TV and just slap him. This guy was a know-it all-little brat who didn't pull his weight in working on the project.
Surprisingly their room was one of my favorites. The guys who did win, won because it was so innovative, but not a room you could live in.....sand box in the floor with a swing...weird.
It was amazing that these two got paired up for the first assignment, sort of made all of the other pairs fade away in their tantrum-less professional demeanor's.
It will be interesting to see how these two fair. OK interesting for me at least. Thank you sis-in-law, Chayna, as the kids call her, for pointing out the show, yes you are right, I do love it.
And let me now focus my attention on my new favorite blog (and thank you Martha for pointing this lady out) Mostly True Stories She totally gave me the idea to critique the people on a show, she did it with Top Chef. She's a L&D nurse with a wicked sense of humor. And makes me laugh and actually in a weird way, gives me hope that I too can make it through my Micro class and then nursing school...even if it is for the stories I'll be able to tell.
So is discussing the lives of the characters on reality TV a new low in the art of procrastination? I do believe so.
