I love you, Louisa

  • As much as I hate to admit it, yes, Mona, I do watch "EastEnders." I can't help it. It's some kind of weird illness that compels me to follow the lives of Ruby Allen (guess how pissed I am that she's leaving the show*) and Bradley Branning and WHAT THE HELL EVER HAPPENED TO JAKE? I haven't forgotten you, Jake!
    Worse than that, however, is the fact that I refuse to miss "Strictly Come Dancing." My "EastEnders" loyalties mean that I'm partial to Louisa, but I'm also a fan of Emma Bunton and Matt Dawson. I feel vindicated in watching "Strictly Come Dancing" due to the fact that one of my professors also watches. If someone who is smarter than me and inherently cooler than me (he's Irish) watches the show, surely it's OK for me.

  • Wait, when did Kurt Angle join TNA? What is happening in America?

  • Fun fact about Welsh: Verb forms often sound like the names of Star Wars characters. E.g., "GwnĂȘl Adnabyddont"

  • Lyrics that have amused me over the past few days:
    - "Stop writin' raps and go play volleyball."
    - "Let there be wind and occasional rain, chilli con carne and sparkling Champagne."

    *Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour in a Cardboard Box and Shipped Internationally At Reasonable Rates, how sad is it that I know behind-the-scenes information about the future of "EastEnders?"

    The mother loves Louisa and Emma on Strictly come dancing as well. She also thinks Clare and Brendan are a great couple.

    anyway, the episode last night was pure shite, last I saw Ruby got home early when Sean was up in bed with the beautician lady. HOW DID SHE NOT KNOW? As my mother said 'are we supposed to believe they don't sleep together?'

    oh and that whole conversation with Sean and Stacey in the playground.
    'I'm leaving!'
    'OK I'll stay!'

    Like, WTF?

    Chris! You were doing so well, son! I was almost convinced you were a Welshman pretending to be a yank!;-) Then, you go 'n say that you're supporting Dawson on Strictly Come Dancing!!! No self-respecting Welshman coul EVER support this evil English bastard. PLUS, he won Masterchef and is a little bit too pleased with himself these days... I'd like to poison him KGB-style...

    I know, Ray. I'm sorry. Some day Wales will finally achieve full independence and everyone will be lining up to apply for citizenship and this insufferable support of English rugby players will come back to bite me: "I'm sorry, son. We appreciate that you've learned our language and lusted over our women and that you almost always insist on drinking beer brewed in Wales, but this support of Jonny Wilkinson and Matt Dawson and Lawrence Dallaglio cannot be overlooked."

    That said, Matt Dawson is a little man bitch, inne?

    Ray Diota said...

    I can't stand him...

    I didn't think you could get smugger than a Grand-slam-winning english rugby player... but Dawson gets worse and worse...

    Seeing as i'll be El Presidente of any independent Welsh Republic, you'll be fine...

    well my guilty pleasure is any show involving people singing (big surprise!) basically there are 1000's to choose from- it's like being in a candy shop!!
