Soapies. No, i’m not talking about the type in your shower. I’m talking about the type with close to cult following. The type that are shown in ‘prime-time’ television. Home and away. Neighbours. The type that have story lines so bizarre only fools would believe them but yet, people still do. I tuned into home and away tonight to see a yr12 girl discover that she she was pregnant on the day of her HSC trials, she told her friend and then when she blanked out in the test, her friend cheated for her. Of course, the friend still managed to fail even though she was sure she would ace it and that means that the pregnant girl failed as well. They both managed to get off with a ‘stern’ warning even though my school teacher mum said she’s taught kids who have been EXPELLED for cheating on their trials. Oh, and the friend? She’s the same character who in the last year has been bulimic, had her mum die, all her siblings (including her twin brother) move away and moved into her boyfriends cousins house. How many yr12 students do you know that that’s happened to? That’s not even the main story line. Another 16yr old boy has been ‘forced’ by his guardian grandfather to quit school and of course, as pay back he killed all of his grandpa’s sheep. Like, who wouldn’t do that? His little sister (who is played by charlotte someone who was in my cousins year at her school and is apparently a MAJOR bitch) discovered the poison he used and now she is forced with the major dilemma of whether to tell the police or not. On the side a boy in year 5 was skipped to high school half way through the year because he’s ‘gifted’. That’s in 2 days in one town. If only my town was that exciting! The story lines are repetitive and un-believable but for some crazy reason, i can’t stop watching….
I have to go to albury for a debate tomorrow. It’s against the same school that beast us last time but it’s a different team. Hopefully we’ll beat them!!! My bans been lifted (well duh!) so i can post every day again!!
Love and terribly addictive soaps,
