Big Brother

Hi, my name is Lydia and I am a Big Brother addict.

I have been addicted since the first episode of the first series. Eight months of the year, I stay clean, but last night I used again, and I just know it is only the first day of a four month obsession that will overwhelm my life.

I'm a bit peeved though - I always become a member of the website, and I was even planning to become a premium member ASAP this year so I could sit and watch what was going on in the house at any time I felt like it. But their official site is fucked - I logged in last night, and it kept changing between logged in and not logged in. Bigger problem than that was that when I was "logged in" it wasn't as myself, but as random accounts - and when I clicked the account name I could see the home address and mobile number etc of the actual account holder.

This does not fill me with confidence. Fortunately I had read and knew not to buy premium yet, as the website was not secure - a secure web address starts "hpps", but the big brother subscription page is a normal "http", so I won't be subscribing to premium until they have gotten their shit together.

How am I meant to serve my addiction, if I can't read the diary updates every 5 minutes, because the damn website won't load?
