I said earlier I would post on Sarah Richardson and so here you have it.
Who the FREAK is this person? Last night I fell asleep with the television on. My spousal unit has taken it upon herself to rearrange the house (which she does ) and we have a television in the bedroom again. I know, I know, this isn't what a bedroom is for, however it is the way the house is currently arranged and I like it. So HA!
So.. I fell asleep. I was sleeping and dreaming and the television volume wasn't even that high because the baby is in a crib in our room and he was also sleeping. The television was on HGTV and "Sarah's Cottage" came on. I am not kidding you when I say this - her ANNOYING voice RIPPED into my delightful slumber and yanked me into semi-consciousness. When my spouse heard me get up she asked what had woken me, to which I responded "SARAH @#&^@#% RICHARDSON". I kid you not. Her voice even annoys me in my sleep.
I have googled her to try and find out WHO she is and WHY she is so dang popular. I cannot find ANYTHING about her online other than she is some fancy designer who has these shows on HGTV and her own design company.
I would also like to point out at this time that she has absolutely NO knowledge or sense when it comes to construction (here is a comment my friend Ranavan made:) "Who the heck does hardwood floor BEFORE the exterior of the house is finished. Then when it rains and ruins the hardwood floor doesn't think "hmmmmm...I should wait until the exterior is done before I redo the hardwood floor." Oh no, instead she does the floor again...it rains AGAIN...now she is redoing the hardwood a third time. Sheesh! And then to top it all off - she paints it!! Paints a beautiful maple hardwood floor!!!!!!! Now you can't even tell it is hardwood. Aaarrggh! Lady!"
Right now she has a show on HGTV Canada where she is either building or renovating a cottage. I am certain she is making some kind of money from HGTV and I have no idea where she comes by the rest of her money, but I have absolutely NO interest in watching some self aggrandizing know it all spend a BOAT load of money so I can watch her build her OWN cottage. I don't know why this interests anyone to tell you the truth, to watch a show with someone who obviously thinks so highly of themselves and their own skills, doing what I consider to be showing off how much money they have to live a life of luxury.
Needless to say I was completely unimpressed that she woke me up and I WISH my PVR had some kind of a device on it where I could permanently delete programs that annoy me as much as she does. I can only imagine what HGTV is going to pay her to do for herself next.
