Big Brother

I could pretend not to watch it but I do. I could kiss those lovely YouTube peeps.

Was watching Andi Peters on BBLB - my word is his head screwed on. Couldn't agree more. Some people really need to think before they speak. As someone who frequently deals with racism - either when it is directed at me here or at Hubby when we are in the UK , I think most Brits have no idea on the crap that comes out of some people!
Miss Britain 2006!? What a splendid representative! One more reason to de-crown her...

Get them off!!!

Hair Cuts!!

Oh my God!
So I only went in to get it blow-dried and came out with a fringe!!!
For those of you who don't have frizz mops - it is not a good idea to cut one's hair too short since it will do one of two things and if you are really unlucky both. 1 - Michael Jackson head 2 - stick out at a right angle from your head like an awning!
Now I need to get it 'done' every time I wash it cos I cannot do it! Disaster!!!
Tomorrow is the kindergarten show! One of the boys mooned the audience today in the practice - I do hope he won't do that tomorrow!

I have been spending far too long on YouTube waiting for my fix of BBLB (DERMY!!!) and have dug up these. They won't mean much if you are not of a certain age (ie about mine!)

BOD!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fY5ym2OU7Bo cannot find Alberto Frog and his Amazing Animal Band!! Let alone the milkshakes WAAH!! - Amber loved that bit.

On the TV front I really liked the Christmas Doctor Who once I got over that women not doing her comedy show (I do use the term lightly btw). I played the theme music to one of my classes as a spring board into some creative writing last week and as a bribe I told them that if they were good and worked hard I would let them watch the show it was from. I wonder how they are going to take it. Perhaps it is like Marmite?

new year celebrations

Just read over what I wrote last week. Solved the problem of getting back by checking into a hotel on Istiklal Caddesi. Most spontaneous. We were walking down Istiklal at about 4pm 'discussing' whether to go home or hang around when Umut suggested a hotel, so we marched up to the nearest one and checked in.
It was lovely with a breathtaking view over the Bosporus and the Russian Embassy (which played Mel and Kim etc all night at their shindig!)
Did a Ross and got everything that was not nailed down and checked out as late as possible.
