TV/FILM REMAKES: Are there seriously no original ideas anymore? Re-makes generally seem to take a show that wasn't all that great in the first place, and then just sex it up a bit, or add a bit more violence or something to make it SEEM more interesting. Ultimately, they still aren't that good. (Apart from "90210" - my guilty pleasure.)
PLAYSUITS: I mentioned these the other day. I don't get why they exist. "Ooooh, I look like a dress, but really I'm not," giggles the playsuit as it hangs in a shop, trying to attract passers-by. Paula approaches, looks it up and down: "That's a pretty dress," she says, picking it up, before she realises her mistake. "Hahahaha," sniggers the playsuit. "Fooled another one!" Grrr.
LIMITED EDITIONS: Nothing is more frustrating than when someone brings out a limited edition, you try it, love it and then . . . in a flash . . . it's no longer available to you. Why do companies do this to us??? We form an attachment to a product, grow to love it and then POOF! it's gone. Limited editions are like . . . most of my ex-boyfriends in that case, I guess. Except the limited edition product MIGHT come back at some point in the future . . .
JUSTIN BIEBER: Do I even have to justify this one? He looks and sounds like a ten year old girl (in fact, I'm sure one of my colleagues suggested he bears a startling resemblance to Hilary Swank - I think he had a point there. What do you think???). Why are girls attracted to him? Why do people keep buying his music? WHY DOES HE PROBABLY HAVE FAR MORE MONEY THAN ME IN THE BANK? Life just isn't fair.
"CELEBRITIES" WHO GET A BOOK PUBLISHED/FASHION LABEL/RECORD DEAL JUST BECAUSE THEY'RE "FAMOUS": I feel really sorry for the normal people who spend ages writing novels without success, or going and getting a fashion degree only to be rejected from all the big jobs, while a celebrity can just jump from one career to another. It just doesn't seem fair to me, especially when you get soap stars releasing rubbish cover tunes, or reality tv stars getting their own fashion label. Makes you wonder why everyone else bothers to try.
Is there anything YOU don't see the point of???
