Um, Me?

Today Mrs Woog posed a 'Big Brother' related question.
Specifically, she asked - "Who watches that crap?"

Unfortunately, my response to that one is "me!"

But w-w-w-ait!
I have a justifiable reason for watching this 'car crash tv'.
(You know - where you don't want to look, but you can't help yourself.)

With the newborn, well, being a newborn twenty four hours a day I need to get my head onto the pillow as early in the evening as possible.

Once Magoo is happily tucked up in his bed and Missi is settled, I try to trot off to bed too.

Ordinarily, I'm not a big sleeper and I don't usually drift off easily.
I wouldn't normally go to bed until after 10pm and would often read many chapters before nodding off.
At the moment, I also don't have the luxury (or physical capability) of hours of exercise to wear me out.

Soooo I need a bit of a fast forward function on my wind down process these days.
Enter 'Big Brother'.

The mind numbing, inane rubbish that spews forth from the television between 7 and 8pm is the perfect tranquiliser to place me in good stead for some zzzzz.

The quality Big Bro in my life.

Forget camomile tea, warm milk or counting sheep.
Josh, Angie, Layla, Ava and the gang are a natural sedative for this Mama.
 Not to mention Sonia and her wisecracks.

So, maybe I'm not alone.
Maybe it's mums of bubs keeping this show on the air.

But then, who (apart from Estelle's Mum) is sms-ing all those votes to save?
I'm certainly not stupid enough to pay for my goodnight drivel.

BB's watching.
Are you?

Shar :-)

Lol... Watch away Shar! I'm not a BB follower but I'm a closet Gossip Girl fan and anything teen and trashy! Like you I tell everyone it's my 'Me' wind down time... But secretly I love it!

We all have our SB's (Secret Behaviours)! Sometimes we just don't wanna say them out aloud :)

Oh I'm there with you!! Totally addicted. Cannot get enough.
But no way would I waste money on voting!

Oh ME! I am a BB TRAGIC. I don't even like it... but I find myself religiously tuning in. Can you please tell me, what is with the lavender thing behind estelle's ear? Annoying. Not cool. Annoying.

Phew. I feel better for that.

Yeah, hand goes up in shame. I watch it. Shoot me! But it's exactly that, a no-brainer, just fluffy television when you're buggered at the end of the day. Love your pic of the big bro in your life, CUTE! xo

Tee hee, i never understood the concept of Big Brother as i just like to live pretending people like that don't exist. I have not seen a single minute of this season, or any other for that matter, even when i flick channels - it's ALWAYS ON AN AD, so they must expect people to be watching & reaping in the advertising cash??
With a new born, gosh i used to tape shows, on video, like it was 1999, because it was . . . to watch during the night feeds (at the time Darwin had 2 channels, only 1 live after 11p.m.) & after she started sleeping through the night, a few weeks later (i have sleepers) i actually missed the shows i'd tape in that magic mind numbing 7-8p.m. time slot.
Love Posie

At the same point 5 years ago when I had a newborn I was watching. Now I flick on, am a little disgusted but at the same can't look away because it's so bad!
Watch and enjoy Shar.
