Most of us have guilty pleasures, right?
Like watching Glee or Desperate Housewives.
Or eating cake for dinner.
Or checking facebook in the bathroom.
No? Just me then?
I have quite a few guilty pleasures, and sometimes they kind of take an unhealthy turn
and become more of an obsession than a guilty pleasure.
Most people know I like Bear Grylls.
Most people also know that the above sentence is the understatement
of the year.
I don't like Bear Grylls, I love him!
About a year ago, when we moved into this apartment,
we had the Discovery Channel for free.
I spent every night at 11 watching Born Survivor.
At one point it got so bad that I couldn't sleep,
unless I had watched the show.
Then the cable guys cut the channel and I went cold turkey.
Boy, that was tough.
But probably pretty healthy.
I still admire Bear Grylls a lot,
but I'm not quite as obsessed anymore.
I will still, however, most likely love anything he does
or is somehow involved in.
Naturally I read his blog on his website (www.beargrylls.com).
Naturally I go through all the pictures on the website too,
every time I read the blog,
just to make sure he didn't upload any new ones I haven't seen.
Obsessed? Noooo. Thorough, yes.
I could go on and on about Bear Grylls,
but all this ranting was actually just to tell you
that I got his new game app for my phone.
And I love it.
It's a simple game. Not that exciting really.
The amazing part though?
Bear Grylls telling me "Nice job!", "Darn it!", and
"That was pretty good, if I do say so myself!"
