I am stranger than thought

I was struck down this weekend with a stomach virus. I was totally pissed as this happened on our supposed romantic weekend we planned as Benj had a bye. Out of all illnesses stomach upsets are the ones that panics me the most. The cramping, the fever and the rest of it is just too icky for me. Bring on a head cold any day!!!

So since I got out of hospital and  recovered from my endo operation, I then got the flu for two weeks then after that I got struck down with a stomach virus. So what was I to do? It was the weekend, thank God it was torrential rain as it didn't make me feel as bad for being stuck inside-again. Benj was a doll, tending to me and rubbing my tummy.

I was so bored and very weak, I had already watched all of the "Real housewives of New Jersey" and finished the last season this week. Yes I admit its my dirty, guilty pleasure. Please don't judge me.

I even brought up my guilt for watching such trash to my spiritual healer last time we met and she said that if it doesn't create negativity within me then its fine. That's Good enough for me!

And for all of you who are secretly addicted.... Can you believe Teresa! I mean c'mon!!

Okay I will stop. If you haven't seen it you may want to skip to season 3 where the good stuff starts, you will lose hours of you life by watching it and don't watch it around "spiritual or educated beings" as you will surely be judged. But it is bloody fabulous and I love it.

Phew! Now I feel relieved, I have been open with my addiction. The first step is admitting you have a problem!

Since I have finished the whole season..  I thought what to do or watch?

I love documentaries and always wanted to make one  when I was younger.. I was always fascinated by prostitutes and homeless people. Growing up I wanted to know everything about the, and wanted to understand the way they lived and how they got there.

Yesterday I watched hours and hours of Documentaries.


I wrote the list below and then realised these are all a little morbid. I do warn that they are not for the faint hearted and are for mature audiences.


Below are a list of the ones I watched:

1. Hell house:

I found this one quite boring but was fascinated when I heard about "Hell houses" and what they aimed to do. I fast forwarded quite a lot of this one.

A "Hell House" is performed annually in October by the youth members of Trinity Church (Assemblies of God) in Cedar Hill, Texas visited by over 10,000 people each year. We see the organization and planning of the event - through the involvement of one family: a single father with 4 children (one of whom suffers from cerebral palsy).

Hell houses are haunted attractions typically run by American, fundamentalist Christian churches or parachurch groups. These depict sin, the torments of the damned in Hell, and usually conclude with a depiction of heaven.

Hell houses focus on occasions and effects of sin or the fate of unrepentant sinners in the afterlife.




2. A city addicted to Crystal Meth:

I love Louis Theroux and I have loved the series Breaking bad (a fictional series about a teacher who becomes a Meth cook) this doco shows a very different side to Ice. The sad reality for a lot of the people of Fresno and the hold Ice has over them.




 3. Dear Zachary: A letter to a son about his father
This is a fascinating doco. Shot by a film maker about his best mate who was killed by his girlfriend. The story twists and turns as the woman is set free, we later find out she is pregnant with the child of the man she shot. The twists keep coming. A must see.




4. Interview with a cannibal:

This is the most shocking and disturbing of them all.

The part I find the hardest to believe is that this man killed and ate a woman and then continued to live a full and happy life jail free?!!!! Not only that he made a living out of the crime he committed. This is a very sad story. Not for the faint hearted.
