Holiday pamper vs 24

Well today was a little different to how I’d planned it really – the plan was to finish packing for going away, get my money sorted, have everything neatly organised and finish with a bit of pool prepping. First thing to ask is why do they make hair removal creams smell so bad? I tried to book an appointment at the beauticians but unfortunately they don’t seem to want any customers as the phone was never answered so I gave up. Beginning to think, I decided why should I pay someone over the odds to inflict pain on myself when there are so many products on the market? And that was when I decided to try Veet. Now a few of my friends swear by it and I must say it’s been great as a pain free hair removal treatment that saved the bother of shaving but the smell. After 4 showers and a bottle of shower gel, it is still the only thing I can smell. Feel free to let me know if you know of any that aren’t as bad!

So after my pampering session there was a mad rush to get into work for a few hours. It was nice and quiet for a change, unfortunately that meant there weren’t as many customers to laugh with though. But I came home and settled down to two more episodes of 24 – season 1 episodes 7 and 8 for anyone who’s seen them. Without spoiling it, oh my word I did not see that coming! I mean the whole breakfast thing wasn’t unexpected as there couldn’t have been anything too much for only 8am, there are still another 15 hours left to go through. But her? That I did not expect! Brilliant acting again I must say. And as for Penny Johnson Jerald, I didn’t expect her character to be the way she is either. I love her in Castle, excellent show but I’ll talk about that some other time.
So all in all, I may not have finished getting ready for my holiday but 24 was definitely worth the set back! Watch the trailer for season 1 here

So I’m currently sitting here eating chilli heatwave doritos and watching Orange is the New Black which I’ve only recently started. I’m on episode 8 and really finding it intriguing 🙂 for those of you who aren’t sure what it’s about, to be honest I wasn’t when I started, the story follows the main character (who’s name I still haven’t caught if anyone wants to fill me in?) who’s been put in prison and her life there. Most of the fellow inmates are lesbians or bi which makes it quite funny in parts! In all honesty, it isn’t my all time favourite show that I can’t stand missing but it’s good enough to keep me wanting more. Even my dog watches it with me!

Since it’s summer and my first year of not having a clue about what’ll hit me in September, I’ve decided to try and watch a few new series over the next couple of months. My family and I recently started watching 24 from the start. Now that is a show I hate not getting to watch! It’s exciting, tense and there’s a new twist in every episode. Jack Bower, whilst not being my type, is a fantastic character and Kiefer Sutherland is brilliant at acting him. Personally I don’t like his wife in the series, she seems to be too annoying for me to warm to. Really, if you enjoy thrillers and action packed shows, this is a must see. I didn’t think I would enjoy it, having watched Spooks for years on BBC 1 (now that I certainly couldn’t and can’t live without) I thought 24 would be too American and not my style of viewing. However, they manage to perfectly balance the different parts of the storyline without confusing anyone.

 

I’m about to go on holiday for a while and dreading not seeing my favourite programmes but the sun and sand of Ibiza is calling to me. Unfortunately so are the galaxy bars in my fridge. Maybe in the future they’ll find a pill that lets us eat whatever we want without getting fat? Fingers crossed!
