We don’t have a television at the House of Payne so I have selectively chosen one show I seek out on the internet. This show was carefully chosen one night when I was visiting my parents in Washington this summer. My mom was watching So You Think You Can Dance so I needed to choose something more thrilling to watch instead. I chose the Real World: Sydney. So I’m not sure how those past sentences justify watching the show but I admit it: I’m watching this season of the Real World, but this time on the internet.
I was watching the latest and greatest of the formulaic debacles when the episode discussed religion. In our culture class right now, we have a project to get people talking about religion. During group meetings, we found it so hard to discuss religion in any sense without feeling a little weird, but strangely enough the cast on the Real World, perhaps the least real people on the planet were more than able to discuss the topic. Well, actually it wasn’t really a discussion at all. It was more like a screaming fest where in the end they just kept yelling back and forth “you’re not listening to me. you’re not listening to me.” We learn a very valuable lesson here: Real World is still amazing after all these years. So very much to learn. Just yell when someone has an opposing idea and scream, “you aren’t listening to me.”
The ping pong story is as follows: I like to wear pink dresses to my intramural ping pong games because it makes me so unassuming.
UPDATE!!!: I was googling for a pink dress to put up as a picture but somehow I stumbled upon the show that is going to take the place of the Real World. Pageant Place. Holy shit what’s better than seven strangers duking it out? Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, and Miss Universe screaming at each other! I hope they get into a religious debate. “Umm… well according to maps like my favorite religion is save africa and asia.”
