that's it...

oh, wait, it's not. i remembered something i was going to post yesterday... i was watching one of the 1am editions of "trisha" on itv1. it was about people who were determined to be famous in one way or another. the one that was on when i happened to tune in was scary - a lady who was completely in love with gareth gates, and was adamant that one day she was going to meet him and marry him. i mean, really. she was serious about this. they eventually established that something must have happened in her life, crisis-wise, around about the same time gareth gates was on pop idol, and that she had to get over that in order to get over him - she agreed, but didn't seem to want to get over him.

anyway, i was sitting there watching, getting very scared, and being very thankful that i at least have some modicum of common sense left. i may be completely infatuated with y-k-w, but at least i'm not insane. i do, at least, realise that my infatuation is ultimately pointless and precisely that - an infatuation - and i certainly don't want his babies ;) being his bestest friend ever would be nice. but i'm not insane. nope. merely slightly mad at the moment, but it'll pass.

i think what scares me more is that the woman didn't realise she was a complete nutter. i mean, couldn't she see how crazy she was? what kind of mentality doesn't even realise that hero-worship is just frelling hero-worship? it's never going to happen. the boy is a pop star. you are old enough to be his mother.

okay, more a rant on society in general... and being a norma/joe shipper i can't complain about the being-old-enough-to-be-his-mother thing, although i deliberatly worked out their age gap as 15 years for a reason ;)

geez...
