Jessica Watson sailed around the world. Big bloody deal, just get of the t.v!

Jessica Watson.

The sixteen year old girl who has just come home from sailing around the world in a gay pink boat.

Good for her.

I'm just pissed that all three of our major networks pulled off all the normal tv shows on Saturday morning to show the footage of her coming home. And of course the networks had to interview anyone and everyone not even remotely connected to Jessica to fill in the time while she sailed in, and that dragged it out even longer. And then other people thought they would board her boat and sail in with her even though it had nothing to do with them and it was her day not theirs, and our fuckwit Prime Minister Kevin bloody Rudd had to get his ugly mug in on the action and get down to the bay to welcome her in with New South Wales premier Kristina Keneally. it was their day!!!!!

I have nothing against Jessica.

I have it against the networks.

I felt smothered, suffocated and pissed off.

Not only did I miss this week's Barefoot Investor, Scott Pape you poor boy, but the coverage was repeated again at 5:30pm. Even though it had gone from 11am to 2:30pm.

Like we didn't see enough.

Now there will be the scrabble of the networks to get the first big story.

Channel 9 whipped together a story for 60 minutes and channel 10 claimed they had the first exclusive interview.



Don't give a shit just stop pissing me off by taking my fave shows off.

Jewels xxoo


  1. I agree. The media are pissing me off with this too.

    Sure, she's done a good thing, but how much of her do they think we need to see?

    I watched 5 minutes of the coverage waiting for Barefoot's show to start, realised it wasn't happening and turned the TV back off. I wasn't watching that shit.

  2. If only we can skip TV shows! Like choosing the shows you want to watch! I think I won't ever go out if I can do that!

  3. I think you can with teevo, but I don't have it.
