I'm a grown woman and I watch way too much TV. As a child I was always being told off for lying around staring at the goggle (not google) box. Well I thought I'd do something about all that TV watchin' hence we have this blog. Now some might say some of the things I've got to say are a bit unfair but who cares when All Publicity is Good Publicity..... Peace Ya'll :)x

Maoam 'sexual' sweet wrappers!

Now I know this is a TV blog but I just had to share this with ya'll. You see, I am trying so hard not to "scream out loud" here! (I'm punning, I'm punning!!!)

I've just come across this article in the Telegraph about 'sexual' wrappers on children's sweets http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/foodanddrinknews/6096788/Haribos-MAOAM-candy-criticised-for-sexual-sweet-wrappers.html

The thing making me writhe in mirth is this from the article "The lime who, I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face. I demanded to see the shop manager and during a heated exchange my wife became quite distressed and had to sit down in the car park."

LOOOOL!!! Or should that be SOL!!! - (err - Scream Out Loud). "The lime who, I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face." - Classic!! Honestly, tears are dripping from my eyes right now!

Don't go getting the wrong idea about me but I may have to go buy a pack before they change it just to keep for posterity.

Peace and love

Mommy I love You!!!!

Well it will soon be Mother's Day (March 22nd for those of you who need a reminder) and I've been racking my brains trying to decide what I can get my mommy.

Or I should say racking my brains until tonight. I've just seen an advert for exactly the right thing ....

...exactly the right thing if I don't value my life that is!!!

Thank you whoever thought this was a good idea. This has been the best laugh I 've had for weeks!

Jamie Oliver - Eat To Save Your Life

I tell you what. If you missed Jamies Eat to Save Your Life, you missed something pretty gruesome.

It was effective though, I'll give them that. I talked about it to a couple of people today and we have all made the decision to do something about our food and exercise.

It was kind of reassuring to see perfectly normal people being given managable tips on how to make small changes that can make huge differences. Don't believe me? Well one girl was told if she cut out one latte coffee and (almost) a pack of crisps a day, she would stop herself from putting on 3 stone in a year. She's not a mega eater, she's an active dance teacher and yet still cutting out the equivalent of the sugar, fat and salt in the coffee and crisps would stop her gaining stones!

Now of course there are a lot more things we can all do. Jamie and company certainly gave their 18 guinea pigs from the great british public a thorough going over.

This was topped off by Dr Gunter's ghoulish autopsy of a 25 stone man. I couldn't watch that bit. You're a better woman/man (delete the appropriate gender here) than me if you did. However, I listened to the things he had to say about the state of that poor man's body. Not nice at all.

My verdict on the programme?

Thought Provoking! If it's repeated again, watch it!

Mr T says "Get some (Snickers) Nuts"


I'm cracking up, gotta get away from the tv. Too many adverts making me laugh. Actually, I seem to be enjoying the ads more than programs at the moment. Do you hear that program makers?!!? Oh hold on, maybe I shouldn't make them aware of my love of ads, that'll just give them an excuse to reduce programs even more.
Anyways back to the subject at hand.

Ever wondered what happened to Mr T. I've been enjoying that homage to him in the 118118 ads (the little boy waiting for a shave at the barbers shouting "crazy fools"). Always guaranteed to make me smile.

Imagine my joy when Mr T himself popped up on tv the other night advertsing Snickers! He looks good considering how long it's been and the advert is a treasure.

Picture the scene. A game of football, a player trips, falls and promptly rolls around on the floor in agony, screaming for the ref. Members of the other team stand around shaking their heads in disbelief at the awful play-acting. Haven't we all felt the same? Wanted to go over, pull up the "injured" player by his shorts, tell him to grow up and stop being such a wimp? Well wish no more. To the rescue comes Mr T but hold on, it gets better! It's Mr T in a tank. Oh how sweet it is to see Mr T shouting "get some nuts"!!! LOL!!!

Now I've made you read my summary, you can go watch it for yourself Get Some Nuts TV.

Peace and lurve!


Cravendale Moo Moo Milk!!!

I just love the latest Cravendale adverts. Cravendale Last Glass

The first lot with the cows following people about to get their milk back were a little worrying, entertaining but scary!

This ad campaign hits just the right note for me.

Who thought of a toy cow, a footballer and a pirate living together???? I'd like to shake your hand! Well maybe just stand at a distance and shout thanks!

Red Nose Day!

It was great TV viewing in a number of places - Tony Blair/Catherine Tate was a Richard and Judy/Ali G moment you must get the dvd if only so you can watch and wince again and again and again!!!

Commentators have said it shows our Tony is quite a good actor. That's worrying cause if he's that good an actor then what's been happening all this time he's been in the big chair?

Of course my biggest reason for buying the DVD is the Dr as Lauren's English teacher. They were both superb in this sketch. As for nan on Deal or No Deal, hilarious!

The fundraising goes on folks http://www.rednoseday.com/

Peace ya'll!!!


Tracey, Joanne and the Mortons

So, we finally got through the trial of Tracey Barlow in Coronation St and not a moment too soon if you ask me. She's been sent down, Tracey "luv" is now in clink and for life. Please, please, please writers, make it for life!?!

I could not stand anymore of her leading on that nasty little boy despite the fact that he deserves it. Enough already of that smug look he walks around with plastered all over his adolescent little mush! I could not stand Tracey blaming everyone (especially her mother) for her predicament. I could not stand her mom chain smoking one minute and having a panic attack the next. I could not stand Ken standing around going "are you alright?" every two seconds. Alright, alright??? Talk about asking a silly question!

The one storyline that upset me mightily is about our Joanne. Bad enough they unceremoniously got rid of her twin sister. They were a brilliant double act, it was a crime to break them up but now we find out that the remaining sister is an illegal immigrant!

Only a few black faces in the street. One is a dodgy taxi cab owner with a flakey past, the other is wrongly convicted of theft after we conveniently find out she has a criminal history so who cares about trying to clear her name and now we find that Jo is guilty of one of the most heinous crimes known to readers of a certain section of the British press - she's an illegal!!!

Shame on you Corro's!!!

Let's not forget the new family on the Street. Why oh why are new families in British soaps always made up a collection of "scallies"? What is so clever about showing how they go around scamming as many people as possible? In the first two weeks we had the grandad teaching his granddaughter how to diddle our "hapless Asian corner shop" owner out of £20 and the father skanking a cut price sign for his chippie.

I know it's a soap but purleeeese, give me a break!!!!

Peace ya'll!!!


Knock, knock ....... Dr Who's there!

Dr Who is back - YIPPEE!!!

I know it's taken me two weeks to say this but I just had to. So far this season has proved to be pretty darn good. I loved the galactic rhinoish police in the first epsiode and I loved Shakespeare in the second. Tomorrow, we see episode three and it's looking like it will most definitely live upto or even raise the standard. I can't wait - Woooohoooo!!!

Now to be selfish (or is that pretentious or maybe precious). I'm not sure about the popularity. Don't get me wrong, I'm pleased for the writers and the actors. It must surely help with the budget. But for me it feels like a lovely secret little club has been broken into and raided. Everyone is now jumping on the bandwagon and the select few are now having to share out the goodies to loads of people who don't really understand the subtleties in the story lines, the little references to previous episodes, the overarching theme/s, etc etc, etc.

All these new people.... they just don't get it. Preferring to tune in because the Dr is kinda cool and his side kick is kinda hot and the baddies are kinda naughty. Oh hold on, aren't these some of the reasons why I tune in???

Right, ahem, ok!

The Dr's back, the Dr's back, the Dr's back!!!!!

Peace ya'll!
