Bugs. I hate bugs. Creepy crawly ones, ones with wings, and the ones with millions of legs. They just freak me out. I can’t stand them. Any AC Silver member will tell you, if so much as a woodlouse is spotted in our office I am ouutttaaa there. Much like the celebrities on that silly program about being stuck in the jungle for a month.
The Bug Factor and the X Factor
I hate ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here’ almost as much as I hate bugs. Well, that’s not really true, but I seriously don’t like it. My Facebook feed is flooded with cries about how this person shouldn’t go, how it’s an outrage that they didn’t kick this person out. Maybe it’s just because I have little interest in celebrities and who is ‘in’ these days, but I don’t recognise 4/5 people who took part in the 2011 series. There is Dougie from McFly, who by law I have to know, being a young girl who grew up in the millennium, and a lady who I vaguely recognise from something like the X Factor (don’t even get me started on that).
Wasps for Brunch
I don’t understand the attraction of watching ANYONE being stuck in a tiny box surrounded by wasps and tarantulas. Especially celebrities that I perhaps like. Oh it makes me shiver at the thought of it! Wasps for brunch, scorpions for supper? No thank you!
Mud Pie for Tea
Maybe I’m just ranting because I don’t understand the aim of spending a month amongst wet leaves, eating the mud off my shoes and the leaves from the trees because they’re the only things for dinner that didn’t once have six legs. Don’t get me wrong, I love camping, but that’s probably because I am a technology addict and I love all sorts of gadgets that you can get these days. Self heating mugs, self inflating mattresses, self constructing tents… well maybe one day.
I definitely don’t intend to eat bugs or drink beetle juice any time in the near future, however Mr Campbell is always insisting that drinks taste one hundred times better when drunk from a silver cup (I’m not sure ANYTHING could make beetle juice taste better). ‘I’m a Celebrity’ could definitely be made classy if they served their scorpion tails and millipede legs from a silver tureen instead of the bland iron pots and pans they use currently.
Served on a Silver Platter
Even if you don’t plan on eating insects from a silver bowl this Christmas, we may have something in stock that would serve as a lovely present for a loved one or a friend. All I know is that, whatever I am drinking this Christmas, it'll certainly taste better if served in a silver goblet presented on a silver waiter, however I know it certainly won’t be beetle juice!
