Lots of TV programmes about obesity at the moment, no doubt to 'encourage' people to stick to their New Year's slimming resolutions.
There was BENEFITS: TOO FAT TO WORK, which largely followed a very unhealthy-looking, intellectually challenged couple, 'living on handouts' and planning their wedding. (The groom collapsed at the reception, and was carted off with a blood clot on his lung.)
Even more loathesome was Creepy Dr Christian's latest wheeze, pitting two porkers with opposing values against each other in a slimming competition, You have to put up their own money, and if your 'enemy' wins, they'll use your dosh to do something you despise. This GUARDIAN review pretty much says it all. O tempora, O mores...
Waiting for the odd-job man to assemble a couple of flat packs for me. (Storage things, so maybe I can get the place a bit less shambolic.)
