Wednesday 19 January 2005


I watch every episode I can of "Desperate Housewives", "Celebrity Big Brother", "ER", "Nip/Tuck", and "Battlestar Galactica". I don't read newspapers (unless you count The Sun online, but that's only so I can send amusing articles to PaulG), watch the news on TV, or listen to talk radio. I think exercise is bad for you; it causes injuries and forces us to witness sweaty people in Lycra. I don't eat five portions of fruit and veg a day. I have a subscription to Heat magazine. The books I've read over the past two years would never appear on anyone's academic reading list. The last film I saw in a cinema was "Shrek 2". I eat cheese singles (AKA Fake Plastic Cheese) at least twice a week. I don't own an iPOD. I don't mind if wine comes in a box (don't knock Banrock Station). I eat ice cream directly out of the carton. The only organic food I consume is produced by Green and Black's. I never floss. I usually can't answer any of the blue, yellow, or orange questions in Trivial Pursuit.

Does this make me uncouth, uncultured, and unhealthy? Probably. Does it make me feel guilty? Not one bit.
