I watch Modern Family on tv. There is little else on tv at the same time on Sunday evening that interests me while I have my pre dinner drink. It make me laugh at times. Initially I thought it was a play on stereotypes. Then I thought it is just making us laugh at stereotypes. Now, I am not so sure. Does it reinforce stereotypes in a way that breaks them down or just makes us more sure of what we already think? What is to become of the mute baby Lily, a child from Vietnam adopted by two gay gays, one an over the top gay and the other very anxty. At least they seem to have stopped losing her, that is forgetting about her. I think I am losing my desire for guys. I find Eva Longoria very attractive and now I like Sofía Vergara. Do either have brothers?
But as I always say, stereotypes happen for good reasons. Who couldn't laugh at old episodes of Mind Your Language or the Kumars at Number 42.
I also watch United States of Tara, mainly because it has a marvellous Australian lead actor in it, but it is quite a good show. Those two are the full extent of my US tv show viewing, but I may just record and watch an episode of Ophra. I need to know how good she is to judge whether the $4 million odd was worth it. I reckon she is better value than paying Tiger Woods a similar amount, or the criminal waste of $43 million on a World Cup football bid, or a similar amount on Melbourne's Grand Pricks.
Yesterday was Melbourne's big Osphra Day. She doesn't seem to do harm. Wonder what she was doing in a baby clothing shop in South Yarra? Is there something she and her girlfriend aren't telling us?
Really I am not the least bit interested in Opra, but I must keep up with modern stuffs, so I shall now go and search out a vid of today's events at Fed Square. Na, na, na, na na na na, na.
