Secret Story - Casa dos Segredos 4

Hey Everyone!

I know I haven't posted in 3 weeks so please forgive me. I've been busy looking for a job and getting small things around the house looked after. I'll try to check in more regularly, perhaps I'll aim for twice a week?

I've recently become hooked on a reality show from Portugal, called SECRET STORY or Casa dos Segredos 4. As I understand it, it was a series in the US but I am not really sure. I became hooked on it on our Portuguese channel here. It's essentially like Big Brother, but everyone in the House has a secret and everyone else is supposed to guess it. There is "the Voice"( A Voz) who gives people missions and if they do the missions satisfactorily, the voice rewards them with money. If they don't perform to The Voice's satisfaction, money is withdrawn from their account.
When a contestant guesses another's secret correctly, they get all the other's money. If they guess incorrectly, they give up all their money to the other contestant.
It has become RIDICULOUSLY addictive and my husband and I find ourselves glued to the screen every night watching what has transpired over the day.

Wish me luck in overcoming my T.V. addiction, because even my mom is hooked!

Geeful Proposal

SPOILER ALERT!!!!

If you haven't watched the season premiere of Glee yet, don't read this!

If you did watch it, keep on reading.

I'm not usually into Glee, I never really caught onto the band-waggon (pun intended). I'd watch a few episodes here and there but never really got sucked into it. Although now that I'm thinking of it, I can't really figure out why; I love musicals so that in and of itself would have been a huge beacon to me.
Anyway, I watched last night's season premiere pretty accidentally as I had somehow assumed that Global (I live in Canada btw) would have the season premiere of Elementary on at 8:00. So I took my shower at 7:30, gave my daughter's hers as well, kicked the hubby out of the living room so that I could watch "My Show".
Well lo and behold, it was on at 10:00! So while I waited till 10:00, I watched Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D at 8:00 and tuned in to Glee at 9:00.
I am in LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I liked the Beatles music, because come on, who CAN'T relate to their music? It still resonates with us to this day. But what I most loved was the "surprise" proposal at the end.
It was beautiful, romantic, cute, a definite cultural statement, and a true testament to the times we live in where it is finally accepted that gay marriage is just that...marriage. I loved the proposal. Blaine was sweet and sincere and just wonderful with the proposal and Kurt was starstruck and sweet. I think I have a toothache from the general sweetness in this scene. I was crying because of how lovely it all was and how absolutely perfect it was to see them together.
Want to watch it again with me? I just can't resist it.

New Beginnings

Hello!

Welcome to the blog!

I'm so excited to start my blog today and I hope that one day I won't be the only person reading it.

I've decided to start a blog because I just love talking to people and sharing my thoughts. I'm a bit of a nerd and I'm sure you'll notice that soon enough.

This will be The Place to gush about anything and everything: fandoms, products, fashion, T.V. shows, music, movies, crafts, ideas, trends, etc...

I would love for you to send me any ideas you might have. Let me know a topic that you find interesting and I'll try to fit it in.

I'll try to keep this a positive environment so that when you come here you won't feel down. I'm usually a happy and optimistic person so let's all stay that way!

Any thoughts on what the first subject of my gush should be? Harry Potter vs Elementary vs the new J.D. Robb book??
