feeling rather shakey so I'm having some tea with sugar and no milk. (BREAK WHILE A BOSS CALLS)

I am happy to plod through all the work from yesterday in silence. In a way, it's relaxing. I can just focus on putting paper in the envelope, or samples in the boxes, or hitting send on the email. Plus, Im not at home. Cabin ever direct to my door, blocking it, in fact, all weekend long. The sidewalk seemed almost strange as I trudged to the R train this morning. The cold air was new and refreshing after 3 days of dry, radiator-heated air. I wondered how many of the people I passed in the street tuned into some form of reality TV last night. you know, all that's on nowadays is reality TV, car commericials, cell phone commericals, and the occasional ER/Practice. Hot deal this, drive this home that, free phone, spy on us cause we were celebrities, but now we are, naked, fighting for survival on a small desert island created by Fox in someone's backyard pool.

It's the same here in Denmark. Reality tv and all those dating shows saturates the schedule.
What went wrong :) Which dimension did we cross over into without noticing.

Im not sure. And the thing is, the reality show of the second is what all my coworkers talk about. I'm into the Iraq thing, earthquakes in China, French chefs committing suicide, oldest man in the US dying (some of this useful and some not)...and I cant even have a conversation because all anyone around here cares about is Fear Factor and Joe Millionaire. No one knows anything else. one girl here didnt even know about the earthquake in China! Ack! I dont know a lot about things either, but you get my drift. Who cares about lame ass people who eat cow spleens for 50$ grand? I dont get it. But everyone else does. Sigh.

But I like reality TV! If it's done well anyway. COPS for example, isn't done well. All they show is cops racing after people and throwing them in jail. Either that's all cops do over there in the states, or it's a missed opportunity.

Over here we have 2 police series, and on neither one I've seen any sort of racing after anything at all. Lots of domestic problems etc though. Makes you respect there and understand there work a little more I think. But then I've always been curious about what is going on behind the scenes...

But none of the big brother stuff for me either, there's nothing real about that stuff. And the osbournes is a comedy more than anything ;-)
