Ten things on the 10th

So I'm not sure how we arrived at the 10th of April already, but here we are!  10 things on the 10th is something I've seen on Shimelle's blog quite a few times, and meant to join in but... you know, it's one of those things you think about, but don't get round to doing?   But not this month!  This month, here I am writing a post :)

Have to admit I'm developing an addiction for fluff TV, so this week as I'm on holiday from uni I'm going to share my top 10 current addictions!
In no particular order...

1. Supersize vs Superskinny
I am secretly (ok not so secretly) obsessed with food; having worked in mental health services it totally fascinates me how much and how little people can eat.

2.  Real Housewives of Beverley Hills
Ok, this is the only way I am going to be a housewife.  Needing to be loaded enough to just ignore the housewife part. LOL

3.  Come Dine With Me
This one is totally about the social dynamics - what fun to be the organiser putting 4 or 5 completely mismatched people together every night for dinner!!  And the narrator is genius :) if the narrator was the voice over for my life?  Amazing.  Every single thing I have thought and not said.

4.  Grey's Anatomy
Introduced to this by my American friends and now addicted.  Feel like it's filling the hole left by Ally McBeal and Lost.

5.  Holby City/Casualty
Horribly addicted to medical programs since starting nursing.  Now feeling a certain amount of pride when I know what they're talking about during a medical emergency :)

6.  The Apprentice (currently UK but also loving the US version when they show it here!)
Oh my GOSH I look forward to this every year!  I start singing the theme tune to my husband (in the style of doo be doo be doo be doo be doo be doo be doo beeee) every time I know it's due to come on LOL
My favourite thing is probably what bugs most viewers; the bonkers people!  Classic lines such as those expressed by wonderfully amusing Stuart Baggs :)

7.  Obese: A Year To Save My Life
This is a new find this year; initially I was watching the UK version with US trainer Jessie Pavelka, but when that finished I've carried on watching the US version on Sky.  Same addictive power as the next program (No. 8) - love a good weight loss story!

8.  Biggest Loser USA
I can't help it.  I love Jillian and Bob.  Even to the point where I sometimes watch repeats!

9.  The Good Wife
Again recenly discovered by accidentally watching episodes with my Mum! Now moved on to keeping up with episodes on playback :-o

10. Desperate Housewives
Another playback addiction!  I have dipped in and out of this program from time to time, but currently firmly addicted to catching the Sunday episode asap!  I hear this program is coming to an end soon *sob*

So there you go!  My first ten things on the tenth!  Fingers crossed I get this motivated next month ;) but if not, give me a nudge will you?  Thanks ;)

I used to watch ER a LONG time ago when that was on. It's been many years since I have watched any of the nighttime shows. It has been a few years of really not watching anything but what Netflix has on their instant streaming. Cable/satellite tv costs went up and being we don't watch much in the first place, we cancelled it. Greg does have all of the seasons of Cheers saved on Netflix, among a few others. He is into the old sitcoms.

Enjoy your week off from school.

Love the Good Wife, need to catch up on Grey's BUT am totally addicted to Castle, have you seen it? Nathan Fillion is the perfect mix of good looking, funny and geeky, the perfect combo for a leading man :)
