America's Next Top Model is crack/craic

"My name is Red Mum and I am addicted to America's Next Top Model." There I have admitted it for all to see.

The Young Wan is also addicted, she was practically clapping her hands with glee when it came on this evening, for the last time in this current series. By the way is it terrible to bring herself down with me in my admission? Ah who cares, one down, all down. Hey sure even Nanny loves it and as she is visiting friends tonight I had to record it for her.

The fact that it is repeated continuously on Living TV which broadcasts the show, wasn't enough, Nanny wanted it recorded. So we have.

We all love it. For me, I love the photo shoots, I LOVE seeing the images from the photo shoots. I love looking at the lighting, working out the lighting, it is just addictive. The added nastiness and craic is just plain icing on the cake.

The fact that a pal from Flickr has had photographs featured on the show, something I learned a while after I met, was pure excitement. Do check out her/Mymsie's pics on Flickr, they are amazing and tell her I said hello. She also has a website too.

Can you imagine me watching the programme and squealing with excitement telling my pal Mar (who was watching the show under duress) 'that's Mymsie's pics'. It was more than cool to see pics I know from Flickr on a show I also love. Here's some more.

And now the current series being shown here is over and Cari-Dee won (yippeeee from our household - we didn't want Melrose to win - I know I know I am sad).

What are they going to show next week, it better be the next season. Seriously it better be. I have had enough mourning over the end of Life on Mars.

Though I loved the ending, what is so wrong with Happy Endings. One of the worst endings in the world was for Thelma and Louise.

And yes I know I should love it, two women deciding their own destiny, but they died. They died...

I wanted a deus ex machina to sort it out, was that too much to ask? That's what I loved about Life on Mars, aside from the lovely Simms, it had the fantastical wonderful happy ending, perfect. That's me happy.

Now could someone go back and sort out a happy ending to Thelma and Louise, and also bring back the next series of America's Next Top Model? Please.

I'm still watching season 1 of Life on Mars over here. Damn why is it not on DVD yet?? It's the best show I've seen since Lost dropped the plot.

Rambling: We couldn't stand her either, there is something mad and manic about her eyes.

CK OOhh I hope I haven't given anything away. I don't think so but let me tell you the very last episode is excellent.

Nope, you didn't give anything away - though I have to say I'm intrigued about the Simms comment.

Fantastic, another fellow addict! I never admitted to anyone before that I love America's Next Top Model. I love seeing what make up, clothes and brilliant photographers can make out of sometimes quite plain looking girls. And I also love the bitchiness going on behind the scenes.

By the way, I've tagged you on my own blog. Hope you don't mind. I like reading your blog (not very regularly, I admit it) and thought I'd like to know a bit more about you. Not sure if you've been tagged before, though...
