And... there goes my summer. The all-consuming show begins again, airing on CBS three times a week and streaming online 24/7. So yeah, that's my life. A world where strangers do nothing and I sit transfixed, I begin to sit around doing sit-ups while they work out like they are somehow my gym buddies and where I religiously tune in to see what Julie Chen is wearing. I'm not saying that I'm proud of this fact, just that no matter how I try, Big Brother keeps sucking me back in.
The all-consuming TV series that takes over my entire life for two and a half months every summer kicks off its new season tonight. I'm so excited. I sort of wish I weren't as obsessed with this show, but even when I'm too cheap to buy the live feeds, I'm still constantly reading blogs to find out what's happening in the house at any given moment, and yes, I even watch After Dark on Showtime. I find it sort of soothing to watch before I go to bed or if I TiVo and watch in the morning. The boring, unedited conversations are like a lullaby to put me to sleep, or company while I'm getting ready for work.
