THIS IS HOW IT STARTS
I'm not a big fan of reality TV (The two terms are complete oxymorons in my opinion). That is why it is so odd that I have found an interest in THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF VANCOUVER.
My wife and daughter were watching episodes on the computer this weekend and I started watching along with them. What drew me in? Sure I used to live in Vancouver but honestly the Vancouver I lived in was not the same Vancouver in this show. The locations are the same but they are different worlds. So what was it?
I was curious enough to watch one but why did I have to get on board for the rest (there have been four episodes so far)? I couldn't tell you.
All I know is that I am fascinated by these women and their drama and the city in which they live and play, which is so much the same and yet so different from the city in which I used to live.
I guess this is my guilty pleasure.
*On a personal, health-type note: It was just a bad flu. I have been on broad spectrum antibiotics all week and the pills are as big as jelly beans. I have recovered fully except for some vestigial weakness. I managed to go out to dinner Friday and go for two walks this weekend and I am back to work this fine Monday morning.
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
