FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 28, 2009
Monk is the only show that I've really watched since it came out and followed thoroughly, I guess it's like a hobby. I own All of the DVD box sets, books mug and keyring, Oh and I also have the two theme tunes, one as an alarm and the other as a ring tone. My friends always joke about me driving them crazy because I talk about all the latest things going on with Monk.
My friends and family tease me about being like Monk with my organization (in and outside school) because I hve to have things in my own little way, if someone was to come in my room they's think that it's just normal but when I go in there I know exactly where everything is and my boyfriend laughed once when we were all watching T.V because a small piece of paper had been knocked off my desk and I noticed, they all said "Monk!!" when I said "That wasn't there before, it's been moved!" They say I'm a nut, I say not crazy just a fan!
I like Monk because it's so funny but the show also brings home some of the realities of OCD. I used to be really bad with things like washing my hands, checking light switches, locking the doors, checking the front gate, and order, it's under control now, you can barely tell I used to be so obsessive, but Monk helped me see how bad things could get and made me see that I had to calm it. I still check the gate and open and close the fridge freezer door but I'm not as obsessive as I used to be it's only now and again when I'm really stressed, I also carry hand sanitizer with me but that to me is just a basic need.
Also I personally think Monk's style is unique and the way he's obsessed with cleaning stuff is the way I am with shoes! :D
Also a huge fan of Tony Shalhoub, I'll probably be a bit lost when the show ends, because I've followed it since it started when I was eleven (I'm now nearly 18) but it's been really great.
