I've never done a TV show post before, but I just had to this time. I'm watching The Amazing Race: All-stars right now, and there are just come crazy things going down. In the previous season, I hated the Beauty Queens, Dustin and Kandice, and never had a problem with Charla and Mirna. I now 180 that opinion. I just can't believe that Charla and Mirna get so upset that no one speaks English in Poland. I've traveled to a few foreign countries and have never felt offended that people speak their native tongue and don't speak mine. If you know you're going to France, freakin' learn "Do you speak English?" (Parlez-vous anglais). It's not that hard, it's in the back of the travel guide. I guess this upsets me so much because it just backs up the "Stupid Americain" viewpoint that the rest of the world holds, and I've been on the receiving end of that prejudice before. Also, Mirna's weird accent that just shows up. Plus, she hates on Charla all the time.
About Dustin and Kandice, they're actually pulling ahead because of brains and know-how, unlike their smugness and "I'm pretty, help me" attitude they had previously. And I love that pretty girls are smart. This maybe just editing, but I still love it.
And for whoever stumbles across this blog: what do you think of getting a friend of mine's band to play at my wedding reception? What are your views on a cover/college-rock band in that situation. They're fun and actually talented, but do you think that would be tacky? Most of the guests will be 20-25, but there will be your usual parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles.
