I'm watching Crap-TV (I know, I know, I shouldn't, but what can I do). I would say I know the general badness that is out there, say, Wife Swap, German Idol, etc.
This programme, however, beats them all. It's called 'Project Wedding of Your Dreams' or something and it's horridly ghastly. The idea is, I think, that you can apply to the broadcasting company, and then they send you somewhere on holidays with a friend while you leave a video message to your significant other in which you tell them you want to marry them at the holiday location and they then have a couple of days time to decide whether they want to go there or not and marry you there. This is very bad in itself. I mean, honestly, do you want to be proposed to via a TV and be told, if you want me, please come to Gran Canaria or whatever in three days' time? Purely rhethorical question, I'm sure.
However, this week's couple is particularly stoopid. (Actually, I have no idea whether they're particularly stoopid or just average, since I don't usually watch this, um, interesting broadcast.) The woman just thinks 'it's all so funny and cool.' She has no doubts her boyfriend will marry her, simply because, and she has no qualms about the whole business. The thing is, apparently she told *everyone* she knew about the proposal, save her boyfriend, of course. She also told his family, who all told her they didn't think it a good idea. Her boyfriend told her before he doesn't want to get married yet. Now her boyfriend just says 'he feels rushed, he doesn't know what to do' (understandable, I mean), all the while she's with a friend on Malta, drinking prosecco and trying to speak English (with little success, I should add) to find the tackiest location imaginable.
I should add that she's left her little daughter with her boyfriend. The little daughter is sure her mummy will get married and has no idea that her family might be ripped apart.
Gee, what's up with people?

Who would want to be married on a crap TV-show? And why????

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

Ours was nice, very quiet apart from the Noise Scare )

Anyway, I hope you had and still have a nice time and wish you and yours all the best. There is something I want to rant about, but first, I have to take poor Emma to the vet for her vaccination. Needless to say that we don't see eye-to-eye where the necessity of that is concerned.

Okay, I finally cleaned out my desk (sort of. There's still stuff on it.) and I didn't realise HOW MUCH stuff there had been on it. Apart from the usual pen-and-paper stuff, I also found 138 other items which didn't belong on it at all.

Instead of reading badfic, I should clear out my desk. There's too much stuff on it. But I don't do it. I keep reading stupid stories about dukedoms and forced marriages.

Apology

I must apologise for not having written anything for such a long time, and for still not having a new Kiss of the Day to post.
A general writing block can be my only excuse. Today, I have finally been able to finish my newest chapter of P,P&P, and I hope that soon, I will be able to write more without having to ponder every paragraph for half a day.
On the positive side, a total block with regards to P&P led to me thinking about Emma, and I may be able to share some fun thoughts about Emma in the next time - we'll see.

You may think that "Who is Colin?" in today's Kiss of the Day refers to Colin Firth. You would be wrong - or maybe not, depending on how you see it. It comes from Leonard Cohen's song "Who By Fire". There's a line in that song that says "And who, shall I say, is calling?" Whenever I hear that song - which I did quite often the last few days - I mishear it as "Who is Colin?". I may have been influenced by viewing pictures of Mr Firth, though. So, Colin is not really Colin Firth, but he has been influenced by him.

The reason why I wrote this "Kiss of the Day" was that I wanted to use that line somewhere. And it doesn't hurt of course that readers may make the connection with Mr Firth. But I wanted you to know that it was not originally him.
