Just figured I do a quick blog on what I’m watching right now. It’s a lot, to be honest I’m finding it pretty hard to keep up. The laptop is constantly at it, trying to keep up with my TV addiction.
So, here it goes. I’ll start with the shows I can’t live without right now.
Loving this show, it’s so fresh and out there. I don’t think there’s been anything like it. Not that I’ve seen anyway. I really like the actors that have been cast for the roles. Emily Van Camp does a wonderful job portraying Emily/Amanda and I’m really glad to see Nick back. I’ve been a fan of him since the day’s of Roswell, so yeah- It’s nice to see him on my TV again. The only cast member I’m never sure about is Connor Paolo. I’m sorry but I can’t see him in any other light other than gayer than now Eric Van Der Woodsen from Gossip Girl! Oh and how could I forget Gabriel Mann, every girl should have a Nolan. I love how he’s so loyal to Emily yet, finds it difficult, especially when she’s off on one and becomes border line fruit loop. The arc with Tyler (Ashton) was fantastic, I really enjoyed that, and I’m really loving that Emily has a new sister- Charlotte. Can’t wait to see how that pans out and if Emily will tell her eventually. Of course the truth would have to be unveiled first, that she is actually Amanda. P.S I never liked the fake Amanda anyway. Glad she appears to be gone. All in all, loving this show, and so isthe boyfriend (I think) Carry on watching people!
The Vampire Diaries
Arrggghhh where do I start. Love, love, love this show! Even though I know it’s made for a much younger teeny bopper audience. I don’t know why I love it. Sometimes you can read it like a book, but I love it when they do surprise me, and bring back characters that have been gone a while (Elijah) Although saying that, I really wish they had kept Rebbecca around. She was a great character, and it was nice to have a bad ass female vampire around as opposed to the usual male vampires! I kinda like Stefan evil. Well not evil but you know what I mean. It makes me feel like I’m watching ‘Angelus’ (David Boreanaz) all over again, brings back some good memories of earlier years when I first became addicted to shows. I don’t know where to start with Damon. Best character of all, even when he’s bad. He’s just so funny and witty and has this little cocky sarcastic smile that I’m sure makes every girls heart beat a little faster! (The boyfriend has one just like it ;)) I really wish Elena would go there with him, even if it’s just once. She really needs a bit of rough and I think he’s the man to do the job. Saying that I do think she’s great with Stefan. I’m not team Elena/Stefan or Elena/Damon. Both are good for me. Caroline has a good arc coming up. At least I assume so, now Klaus has saved her from Tyler’s werewolf bite. Maybe they’ll writ Caroline and Klaus into a relationship. I can see it coming (I think :/) Tyler and Matt are both boring me to be honest. I wish they’d both clear off. Matt is boring and kinda irrelevant. He has no powers or purpose to the group (Sorry Matt) And I just don’t like Tyler to be honest. I know people are also mad cos Jeremy has been sent away, but meh, not bothered about that either. I feel his story has gone as far as it can for now. Bonnie- Never really like her either. God I’m awful aren’t I. Curious to see the relationship between Alaric and Meredith. Something about her just doesn’t add up! I’m sure Paul Wesley loves working with his wife though! Hopefully some new characters will be added in, and I hope we get to find out who’s in that damn coffin sometime this century! Carry on watching people!
I know this show isn’t really original and there are many shows very similar to it, but I can’t help but love it. I think it’s because I genuinely love all the characters in the show although the favourites have to be Garcia and Reid. Garcia is so sassy and quick witted, I really like her character. Reid is just adorable. I wish he’s find himself a nice little girlfriend. I wish at least one of them would anyway! The show lacks that. Maybe that’s the point of it, but damn it, one of them deserves happiness!!! Not much to say on the show really apart from the fact that I love it and will continue to watch it :) Keep on watching people!
Hart Of Dixie
Another new show that is at the top of my list. Like Revenge, I think it’s quite fresh and has a storyline that I Can get to grips with. I’m glad it’s a CW show that seems more grown up as well. I don’t feel such a baby for watching it. I’ve missed having Rachel Bilson on my screen so glad she got cast as Zoe Hart. She’s always been very funny and you can definitely see this in her character. Scott Porter is also doing a great job. I used to watch him in Friday Night Lights (although only the first two.five seasons) and thought he was wonderful in that. I wish he’d break up with Lemon (Love Jaime King portraying her. She’s so sower-faced, it’s great!) Especially since she’s a cheat and he’s got the hots for Zoe, but then there’s Wade argh I love him too! I don’t know which way I want to sway. Hopefully it turns into a nice big love triangle! Keep watching people!
Being Human (US)
OK, so there has only been one episode of season two that has been aired, but my God it was a good episode! I think I actually screamed ‘NOOOOOOOOOO’ at the end of the episode when I was at work in the staff room. Really great way to start the season. Interested to see the arc with Nora being a werewolf now and how Josh will react to it (I’m sure she’s going to maul the vampire that’s about to kill Josh) Can’t wait until next weeks episode so I can see who’s playing this vampire that’s going to be in charge of Boston, now that Aiden has been told it’s not him. Maybe it’s going to be a possible love interest for him? Sally for me is the weak link, I don’t know how far you can really take her character. All in all, can’t wait for the next episode! I have no desire to watch the UK version either. Keep on watching people!
Other shows that I’m watching and enjoying are; Pretty Little Liars, The Secret Circle, Ringer and American Horror Story (Although this season is over with now)
There are also shows that I personally feel have come to an end now. It pains me to say it! Although saying that, like the loyal fan I am, I will keep watching them, in hope that they will pick up again. One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and Supernatural.
The only show I’m not bothered about at all is 90210.
Anyway friends, hope that’s given you a good insight to my world of TV!
Feel free to comment and thanks for reading :)
To say i’m going to blog soon. I alway’s really wanted to get in to this, but sometimes there’s not much point as anyone every reads it. Anyways, I have two blogs that I may have to split in to multiple parts as they’ll be so long, and so boring for you to read all in one go. One is a TV blog of all the shows i’m watching and what I think of them. The second will report on my holiday to Orlando. Hope you want to read!
Peace out xoxoxo
I don’t even know where to start with this. Its will most likely take me a while to write it, and it will end up with no one reading it. Maybe this is just for me?
Most of you know the trouble I have had with my dads ‘girlfriend’ and I use this term lightly. I’m not sure how long they have been seeing each other maybe 4 years or so. Anyway, for the most of it, she was married (still is) and by married I mean still with her husband. This posed a problem as I generally don’t like the idea of that. Especially since she has a small boy (maybe around 7 at the time) I thought their relationship was wrong on so many levels… You can understand why, right?
At first I spoke to her and was friendly based on the fact my father had told me she was leaving her husband. What a load of bull that was. So in the end, I stopped talking to her. I had seen how my father was changing for the worse, and I didn’t want anything to do with their fucked up relationship.
By my father wouldn’t have that. Apparently although I live at home with him, it has nothing to do with me (sorry, I think it does) and in the end told me I had to either exchange pleasantries with her, or my boyfriend could no longer come in the house. So I spoke to her. False smiled, said hello. Had a quick chat.
Now a while ago, maybe 18 months 2 years, someone objected to their relationship and sent her abusive texts messages and facebook messages (which I didn’t really care if they did or not) and then they stopped. However, they found an un-read one under a false name on her husbands FB account from around aug 10’ (they say he didn’t see it as he doesn’t use it) at this time I got 4 messages from her daughter who is a year older than me and who I’ve met twice, basically asking why I was being a bitch to her mum. I didn’t really understand this as we had been on speaking terms, so I ignore the message and called my dad and he told me they had found the mssg from Aug and thought it was me!
Don’t people think I’ve got better things to do, than make up facebook names and send messages on there. Next thing, I told my dad that just after xmas her son had tried to contact me on fb. I have a message saying ‘do I no u’ I don’t know how he found out my name or what not, but there it is. Needless to say I didn’t reply and ignored it. My father told his gf and now she thinks I’ve been texting/ fb’ing her and trying to get in contact with her son!
Tuesday I rushed in from work and she was there, but its gone to far now. She was in the office with my dad so I ignore them both and went upstairs as I was running late. I heard a knock at my door and it was her asking if she could have a word. I said if it was 30 seconds as I’m late for netball. She came in and asked me what my problem was. I told her I didn’t like being accused of things I hadn’t done. In the end it was a screaming match. She said I had always been rude to her (I think she should of said ignored) which is irrelevant as we had been on speaking terms… Slammed doors in her face (er when?!) And I had been sending her abusive messages and she was going to get her daughter to come and see me (like I care) and then she would call the police (I told her to do it) when I eventually screamed at her and told her to get the fuck out of my room she said ‘no, this isn’t your house, or your room you just pay rent to live here’ how dare she say that my home is not my home. Its more my fucking home than it is hers!!! In the end I slammed the door in her face.
Anyway, I’d love thoughts and comments. Have I been over-reacting?
After my BB curve has gone down the pan (battery is broke) I’ve had to get a new phone, a month before my contract runs out with t-mobile. I’m not staying with them cause basically their shit and when I asked if there were any extra charged they said no, when in fact I had to pay vat on top of my bill. So instead of paying £30 a month I’ve been paying £36 plus £6 insurance.
I trotted over to Orange and got the new Torch. I was a bit sceptical as the reviews aren’t fantastic, however these are done by total phone geeks who compare everything on the phone. They all seemed to say the same thing. If your a BB user, then this is the phone for you as its currently top of the range, how ever if your an iPhone user, then its a step down. Which duh, I get that.
So here I am with the new BB Torch and so far so good, no signs of it not connecting to the net, or taking 5 hours to load a page and best off all even though its the top BB to have, I’m getting it for £38 including insurance. HA in your face t-mobile. Other perks are definitely the replacement if it breaks and the excess not being very high.
I guess now I realise phone batteries don’t last forever, and with this being a 2 year contract, if worse comes to worse I’ll have to buy a new battery for £20. I’ll review the phone after I’ve had it a while and let you all know what I think :)
So, due to a change in rota at work and people cutting their hours back, I’ve got three days off in a row. Amazing I know, its only been 9 months now.
So on Friday night I got to the boyfriends and he made me some nommy dinner, then we headed out to the pub. We were supposed to be catching a late movie of unknown, but we were too tired!
Saturday was an amazing day, we went to Twycross Zoo and I was happy to see that its been revamped, a added bonus was nice weather! The animals were fantastic and I’ve never known Monkeys to be so noisy! I will I could upload it on here! When we got home we had a chinese and settled down to a few movies :)
Today was a chill out day, popped into town to order my new Blackberry Torch, then headed back to the boyfriends for a nommy Sunday dinner. All in all a great weekend. I’ll post some pictures :)
I wish there were loads to catch everyone up on, but there really isn’t. My job situation is still shit. Its horrible, the things she asks/makes us do. Tedious things. I’m sick of not having a proper staff room, or toilet. No drinking water and having to share a fridge and sink with dog bowls and dog meat. I hate working here and find it the most depressing thing in the world, but I need the money. In fact I need the money that bad I’ve told my boss I’ll babysit for her tonight. I really don’t want to, but desperate times and all that…
I’m going to see ‘Morning Glory’ on Friday night with the boyfriend- premiere style, so that should cheer me up as I’m a huge Rachel McAdams fan.
I’m behind on my shows, but I’ve got a day off tomorrow, so hopefully I can just stay in bed all day and catch up. Although, all I feel like watching is Criminal Minds for some reason…
I was looking forward to my netball match last night, but at the last minute it was called off which really pissed me off. It takes me about 40 minutes to get there, so had I not checked my phone before I left I would of wasted a hell of a lot of petrol. Also the fact that I miss the England vs NZL match the night before because we had training ready for the match last night. Also pissed off some of the girls as they missed training to go to it, and still expected to play in the match. Why am I always the stupid one that doesn’t the right thing and misses out on stuff I want to do? Well I’m not doing it anymore. Next time- game or no game, I’m going to watch them play.
I think that’s about it for now, add me on twitter twitter.com/siaan
