Pod-a-Doodle-Do Episode 5 - Hashtags don't belong on Facebook




Episode 5 already! Andy and I chat about Justin Bieber's latest wardrobe disaster and try to think of a word for this new type of Bruno Mars/Olly Murs person. Also, I ran out of Soundcloud hours! Must buy a real account after Pay Day (and I should really figure out iTunes too). In the meantime, you can just click 'share' on this DivShare thing and then it give you the download option.

Merry Almost Christmas,
Margaret

Photo of the Week - Americans in Edinburgh

Jeans and tennis shoes, the American uniform.

RHOBH is BACK!

If you listened to my first podcast, then you know that I have good taste in TV. OK, so I don't 'get' the Homeland praise, but I'm right there with the rest of the world in loving Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire and all those other HBO/Showtime greats.

Clearly, my TV palate is refined enough to enjoy those wonderfully scripted, brilliantly acted shows - so why is it that I enjoy the Real Housewives franchise just as much (if not a bit more)?

I watch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because I genuinely love it. It's not a guilty pleasure. I am not watching it ironically. Honestly, nothing beats sitting up in bed with a mug of tea, a toasted bagel, and the latest installment of RHOBH.

My theory is that reality TV actually really helps me switch off my manic brain. When you stare at a computer all day pretending and then eventually convincing yourself that the work you're doing matters, it's hard to stop caring at the stroke of 5:10 (yes, my job bizarrely ends at 5:10). But the Real Housewives, their odd lives and (probably fake) drama is like a vacation for my brain. I don't get that from more 'serious' shows, like The Wire or Mad Men. Those shows are great, but their characters' lives stress me out. Not true of RHOBH, RuPaul's Drag Race and Geordie Shore.

Season 3 airs TONIGHT, which means I'll be able to watch it tomorrow (time difference). Cannae wait.

Do you watch any Housewives? Which ones? I watch New York, Beverly Hills and occasionally Orange County. I also watched Washington D.C. for the one season it was on.

Cheers,
Margaret

Pod-a-Doodle-Doo - Episode 1 !

Get ready for the ride of your life. I've started a podcast.

Why? Well, for the following reasons:

1. To add meaning to my life
2. To work on my speaking voice (Andy has diagnosed me with 'vocal fry')
3. To expand the grassyllama brand
