'Hey, they got the ocean here?'

I realize that I never recapped last week's Real World episode for all those of you who are interested. That's probably okay, because all of you are on vacation in Spain. So here's what happened:

Leah and Simon made Mallory buy ugly, uncomfortable shoes. Fight the power, Mallory! Have a little backbone! Support your comfortably-shod sisters! Meanwhile, Adam was interested in this girl based on the very selective criteria that she had a pulse and spoke English. She wasn't interested in him, even though he was spending huge wadges of cash trying to make her love him. He also rapped.

"Adam giggles like a little girl and rocks back and forth on the bed and tries to pretend snuggling with Ace would be funny and not the fulfillment of his life's dream."
- Television Without Pity

Adam: I really like girls who like me, you know.
Robin talking to the TV: Then you must not like any girls at all.

The end.

Thanks again to Social Systems & Collections, I have come to realize that I watch this show a) out of habit and b) because it causes an emotional reaction in me. I just knew I had to keep watching even if I didn't understand why. The cognitive aspect has finally caught up and I've realized that my justification for watching the show is that it makes me feel superior and gives me a chance to see how the stupid side live without actually interacting with stupid people.

This week: the whiners and drama-queens left on a vacation to Nice (pronounced like the adjective, I kid you not), Italy and beyond and CT purposely got himself left behind in the train station so that he would have an excuse to be mad at them all.

I can't tell you how glad I am not to have the opportunity to watch this programme. I would probably have thrown the TV off my balcony by this point, in disgust.

The first two seasons are still the best.

But then again . . . that can be said for most shows, movies . . . just about anything.

Srah, I nominate you to be on the next season of RW. I would totally watch that.

I'm not dramatic enough. They just want people who will freak out about minor things and go crazy.

I, of course, would never do that.

Actually, my roommates and I auditioned for the . . . Las Vegas season . . . while we were in LA . . .

One of my roomies and a friend were called back, I however, was not.

Though . . . I tend to take that as a compliment seeing as how the two individuals they did call back weren't . . . *ahem* all that . . . *ahem* bright.
