It seems to me like lately, every time you turn on the television, you can find a reality show about home renovation. Usually, home renovation gone wrong.
Or some other real-estate reality shows. We've been watching a lot of them, actually, the renovation ones can be kind of scary, though, especially because even though it's been almost a year, I am not quite over the whole wood floor installation fiasco. (For the record, that asshole has STILL not come back to finish what he promised us. Think he's going to? Nah, me neither.). Still, we would like to, eventually, renovate our house. We have some good idea's, too, nothing crazy, just some things that we'd like to add, like a built in pantry, a mud room, a master suite... (both bedrooms here are pretty much the same...). But it's not like we're living in squalor. I love our little house.
The show that makes me crazy, usually, though, is House Hunters International. MOST of the people they show on there are these crazily pretentious people who seem to just want to show off the fact that they can purchase an island vacation home somewhere in sunnier climes. I swear the producers of that show go out and find the most annoying dumb asses they possibly can to feature. Every now and then they do "real" people, like the Canadians last night who live in more snow then I would ever tolerate who saved money for years and years and years to buy a cheap condo in the Dominican Republic. (they were kind of nice people, it seemed. Woman said "eh?" quite a bit... would have been a great drinking game).
For some reason, though, we find ourself watching these shows, a lot. Its fun to look at the other houses, even if the people are annoying...
