Cable TV

It was rainy and stormy here all weekend (and still is so far this week, too) so I took time to do a zillion little things around the house. You know, the stuff that gets put off until you have way to many things on the "to do later" list to ignore it. Ironing, fixing hems, swapping winter/summer clothes, dusting crown molding and baseboards, cleaning out the freezer, etc... So when I am doing these random tasks, as well as when I am sewing, I usually have the TV on to keep me company. It's the ideal time to watch/listen to (since my back is usually to the TV) cable show marathons. Shows I never watch but will totally allow myself to get sucked into on days like this.

That being said, I have a question for y'all. Who the heck are Katie and Peter? I have seen commercials for their reality show and was excited to flip and find a marathon running. But I have no idea who they are or why they have a TV show. She is obnoxious. And OMG how the heck does she keep herself upright- her chest has to be off the charts. I confirmed this opinion when I saw her wearing a very tight white t-shirt. Four words, Katie. Buy a bigger bra! I don't care who you are or how much money you are getting paid to do a TV show, the four boob look is never in. Not in the States, anyway. Check out this picture at their wedding. Classy.


After about and hour of that nonsense, I just could not take any more. But that lead me to what I now feel is a really under-rated show. Deadliest Catch. Who knew I could get so sucked into watching a show about fishing?! It was really fascinating to see how hard those men, and the occasional woman, work to bring me fresh seafood. I mean, I have never really given it much thought. I grew up in a coastal city so deep sea fishing was a regular weekend activity around my home town. But that is more sport fishing and also includes great weather and a cold beverage. The Deadliest Catch boats face frigid show and ice storms, swells twice as high as the boats and grueling 30+ hours of physical labor before any sort of break or rest, and living in a small space for weeks and months on end. All to allow me to pick up fresh crab and fish from my local market on a daily basis. Amazing! Sooo much more fascinating than the oddest British couple to be on TV.

OH! We are TOTALLY hooked on Deadliest Catch!! I think we must have caught a marathon last night too. Are these people stupid or what?! You couldn't pay me enough money. Of course I probably wouldn't be much help anyway b/c I'd be so sea sick. Can you believe how huge those crabs are though?!

My husband (that still sound weird) loves Deadliest Catch. I hardly ever watch TV (well except for So You Think YOu Can Dance), but everytime I walk into the room, he is watching that show! It just makes me too nervous!

I'd never heard of Peter and Katie until Kerry posted about them the other day. She (and her big ta tas) is horrifying!

It is so sad that I know this. But I read a lot of British newspapers and tabloids so I've heard lots about katie, or 'jordan' as she is known in the media. She is what they call a 'glamour model'. Meaning she poses topless in the newspapers (seriously!). Haven't heard too much about her husband, but he is some kind of popstar or singer.

Any doubt in your mind that this woman has been "augmented"? lol

I got addicted to the Deadliest Catch while I was pregnant...I watched a marathon literally all day long once!

"Happy" hubby loves Deadliest Catch! I usually have to cover my eyes with the laundry I'm folding... those guys certainly don't get paid enough!

I got sucked into Deadliest Catch too. I grew up in Alaska, and spent most my life around guys like that, so I "get them". It's a tough job, but some of them make so much they don't work the rest of the year. ~Risa

Oh that's "Jordan." Perez Hilton posts about her all the time. She's prego right now, so the girls are extra ginormous.
