real world/road rules

For some reason, I’ve become really into Real World and Road Rules again — my obsession goes through phases, I guess. Sometims I love certain seasons (namely RW Hawaii and New Orleans) and then other times, I’m completely indifferent (RW Chicago and RR The Quest). But right now, with the crazy cast of Las Vegas and the hilarious antics of the Battle of the Sexes, I have become obsessed again. I’ll even watch the ten million reruns that MTV shows of each episode. *shakes head* But what I’ve found to be really interesting after watching the new Battle of the Sexes episodes, is to read the recaps done by three cast members: Colin from RW 8 Hawaii, Melissa from RW 9 New Orleans, and Lori from RW 10 New York. The 3 of them put up their recaps after a new episode airs on Monday nights. They shed a lot of light about the editing and stuff that happens behind the scenes. They’re all pretty interesting reads — like in Melissa’s blog, she mentions that Jon Murray (one of the creators) thanked her for the fight she had with Julie in the first episode. That’s just weird.

Anyway… time for the Friday Five:

What is one thing you don’t like about your body? I’m too short. I’m like 5 ft. 2 in. or something. I hate it mostly because when I buy pants, I always have to have them hemmed. What a pain.

What are two things you love about your body? Uhhh, I don’t really love anything but I guess I like my smile and my arms.

What are three things you want to change about your home? Well first, I really dislike all the wires that we have running from the 4 computers to the hub that’s located in the living room. We tried to get them as close to the wall as possible but they still bother me. Secondly, I wish that we had another room so that Rob’s desk didn’t have to be in the corner of the living room. And lastly, I wish I had a bigger closet. I have too many clothes.

What are four books you want to read this year? Hmm… The Nanny Diaries, The Lovely Bones, A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

What are five promises you have kept to yourself? I’ve been pretty good about cooking food at home as opposed to always going out to eat. I have decreased my clothes shopping considerably — but I think that might be due to the fact that I have no disposable income to use! I don’t procrastinate as much as I used to when it comes to cleaning my apartment. I’ve started to go through, clean and throw out the contents of various boxes that have been under my bed since I moved in a year ago. That’s only 4 but I can’t think of anything else…

Ok, this is too long already… need to sleep.
