I did it again. Approaching midnight and . . . I fell asleep and woke at just after 1.00. I just made sandwiches and it’s 1.27. Is this a good time to write? No. Am I going to anyway? Yes, of course I am.
Having bad habits and ignoring my health are two of my main activities. This is stupid, as it’s not really as if I enjoy siting here struggling. The ideas I had eight hours ago have deserted me and all I have left is an echoing void between my ears.
The Apprentice is over for another year and Lord Sugar has informed the country that if the BBC ever replaces him on the programme it will be the death of it because no other entrepreneur will be able to replace him. I think he’s wrong. The programme is currently drifting and looks tired as his scriptwriters struggle to put witty remarks into his mouth, and a crowd of detestable candidates all tell us how good they are.
Tonight’s final was won by an objectionable candidate who defeated an equally objectionable, but slightly less competent candidate. It was like a rerun of my favourite episode of “Which Disease Would You Like?”, the Typhoid v Typhus episode to be precise. To be fair, they could be lovely people, but the format of the show encourages people to be excruciatingly awful.
We stopped watching it years ago but seemed to drift back into it. It’s a decision I regret, but at least it gave me the subject for a post.
Like Derrick, I am an Apprentice abstainer. I got put off Alan Sugar many years before he appeared on the telly.
Yes, I’ve never been a fan. Despite his latest pronouncement I feel that getting rid of him would actually be a boost for the programme. And I always find it grates when he elctures people bout product quality.
I think I’ll stick to the baking and home renovation shows. 😉
🙂 I am going to try to break the habit and not watch it next time.
I’ve never seen The Apprentice. The adverts put me off
You have lost nothing and gained many hours of reading time.
The Apprentice America was Donald Trump at his best – ie terrible.
“Which Disease Would You Like?” – that program sounds like a good formula for insomnia, Simon. Never heard of that show!
It’s still in the planning stage. I was sidetracked by my plans for my un-named show where you put 24 minor celebrities on a desert island with a week’s supply of food and leave them fro a couple of years before going back to see what happened to them . . .
I would assume the outcome would not be very good. 🙂
That would depend entirely on your view of minor celebrities. 🙂
