i've been in the uk for the past month. during that time i enjoyed watching a variety of interesting programmes on tv.

since being back, i must have watched people eating instant noodles on tv about 4 times, and i've only been back 2 days. what is with this? it's the same shit over and over again. if it's not eating noodles its cleaning the house or even worse - watching people watch people cleaning the house.

nothing interesting is happening. it's 9pm - prime time - and this is tv at its best? i've clearly forgotten how incredibly inane korean tv is. i just cannot get my head around why this would be entertaining to.......anyone

I get my fill of Korean TV when I visit certain restaurants. It guarantees that I'll never use the TV in my home for anything other than movies or games.

Yeah, our big TV in the living room's been bust now for about 6 months and neither of us have made any noises about replacing it.

homes under the hammer?    8)

What's that one where they get couples with huge amounts of money to spend to look at three massively overpriced houses then reject them all because the wine cellar doesn't have quite the right dimensions or only three of the five bedrooms have en suite facilities?

Here is one B list celeb with three C listers out in the countryside, cleaning up their room, picking some corn and riding an ATV.......... for 45 mins.

'Wanted Down Under' or 'Escape to the Country'?  Both similar I suppose.

Ah, the programme where midlife crisis dads tear their wives and children away from their friends, loved ones, safe and secure lives and drag them across to the other side of the world because "they've always wanted to do it".  I loved watching it haha  ;D

BBC iplayer have blocked my VPN and all the other ones so I can't watch This Country- The Aftermath.

Searched the internet far and wide for a torrent but the only one available is corrupted/awful quality.

It's on my desktop right now lol.  I found it on Piratebay and the quality is good but it won't open in Windows Media Player so I just used GOM.

I just put it on Google Drive so I can share it with you if you want  8)

I like 'Come Dine with me', when one of the guests has some sort of mental illness. And the narrator takes the piss out of everyone.

for some strange reason, i love it.  it's my guaranteed morning watching when I go back home to visit.  it's a shame as now it's mostly 'people adding to their vast portfolio' or on behalf of 'investors', rather than people taking a punt at the auction.  but still....

Dave Lamb absolutely makes that show.

"Dinner Date" is along the same lines and it's brilliant.

I have 6 damn classes today and recovering from a nasty flu. It's critical that I have my break between lessons to recover and prepare. Between the 2nd and 3rd periods sit a 20min break, which I desperately need.

Just as 2nd period ends, I'm cleaning the board and preparing for some quiet time, in barges 25 4th grade students, their HR teacher saw it fit to send them to wait in the damn English class as if it's a bloody playground.

In the typical spineless fashion I've come to expect here, my CT is trying to placate and downplay the whole thing, but I'm seriously going to give this selfish **** of a HR teacher a piece of my mind during lunch.

Can't you just say "No, I'm sorry, go play outside." and shoo them away?

Also, sorry to here about your flu. being sick sucks.
 It's definitely flu season now: half my students look like sad ninjas.

This is the reason why I installed a lock on my classroom door (on the inside).

When I can't be arsed, which is surprisingly quite frequently. As soon as the previous class all leave I turn off the lights, lock the door and hide in the corner of the room behind my book fort for a nice slice of pommesfrites downtime.

Those 10 minutes breaks are imperative.
