Reality Tidbits – Saturday

The winner of Big Brother Tim Dormer surprises Ben about his trip to Graceland. It appears it could be their own YouTube reality TV show as they are taking the camera men with them.

I’d rather not see Ben and Tim together because I only liked Tim.

So an update for those who asked… I received a hand written Xmas card from Tahan and make up it was very nice! As for Tim, argh bit disappointed in him after he condoned skinning Goats for making rugs on Facebook. Not cool.

The word of the week…….. “mortified”…. Next week Enid Blytons other favorite word ….”horrid”

Australian version of BB was a fan favorite in UK for best International show. Australian’s won most categories.

Maybe feral cats are a better option for making rugs.

I understand that 3, ooo were shot in 16 days in the immediate vicinity of a Bilby enclosure earlier this year. They managed to get in and kill over a hundred newborn Bilbys ie the lot.

Kind of mortifying,that.

Sandii I was mortified to see that teachers in the US are arming themselves (to protect their students, not with wooden spoons). It would be horrid to be a teacher in the US.

Please keep them coming. I love ‘horrid’. It’s a splendid word.

7 Maggie { 01.04.14 at 9:57 pm }

Spiffing even.

8 Maggie { 01.04.14 at 9:58 pm }

Anyone having a jolly time?

9 Maggie { 01.04.14 at 10:00 pm }

In those days a bloody bastard was a rogue, a cad or a scoundrel.

I know my ‘bloody bastard’ is outdated.

10 HoneyBee { 01.04.14 at 10:06 pm }

How jolly was it when Dick and Dora went to the seaside and sang “The Grand Old Duke of York” on the train.
And didn’t they have a merry old time when they went to the zoo and the monkey took Jane’s hat. But it was sad when Nip fell in the mud.

Sorry guys but it beats The Funniest Home Videos.

11 HoneyBee { 01.04.14 at 10:14 pm }

I mean pardon me chaps.

12 Sandii { 01.04.14 at 10:38 pm }

I think I may have created a monster. Keep up the good work chaps.

13 Sandii { 01.04.14 at 10:41 pm }

Ps “splendid”is a marvelous word Maggie

14 Sue { 01.05.14 at 1:43 pm }

I was never able to tell Callum & Matthew apart; they were Callum and Callum until one of the Callums was eliminated.

15 Andrea { 01.05.14 at 1:45 pm }

Tuffdeck@2, good on you for getting something nice from Tahan, thanks for letting us know.

16 brain dead dave { 01.05.14 at 1:47 pm }

Callum was the one whose signature dish was burnt custard.

17 Sandii { 01.05.14 at 5:34 pm }

Did a couple of cooking classes with Callum at the Central market, he is a very nice lad and the classes are good fun. His classes are booked out way in advance.

18 Gabby { 01.05.14 at 6:02 pm }

You kept that a secret Sandii, your touch with fame. It’s good to hear he is as nice as he appeared on the box. Glad he is doing ok for himself.
I agree with RR. What are they doing drinking Heinekin? They should be having a drop of San Miguel or such when in Barcelona.

19 Sandii { 01.05.14 at 6:44 pm }

Gabby, he was definitely as nice in real life. He has done so well for himself. No dramatics or tanties, just an all round great guy. His classes book out within hours. My daughter has been to three of them and has learnt heaps as well.

I’m sure it made for a very clever joke, but if Trump really had a problem with Democrats, why would he have cast Democrat politician Rob Blagojavich on the show? The answer is of course, ratings, money, and publicity. To help the Trump brand, which is the only reason why Trump does anything, including running as a Republican politician. He’s clearly not a die-hard Republican, he hated George Dubya Bush and considered him a ‘terrible’ president. Trump will support anyone or anything if it’s in his best self-interest.
