gossip girl in prague

So, the season three finale ended in Prague, Czech Republic. I was super excited to see such a popular show use Prague as it's backdrop (since I lived there for 2 years as a student), but it's funny how inaccurately they portrayed the city.. Chuck gets mugged and shot in Prague, after spending a short time there.. while Chuck and the rest of the cast live in Manhattan or Brooklyn where the crime rate is much higher, yet nothing bad ever happens there. I will let this one slide, since most of the rest of the show is accurate in what it does. It is just and a bit frustrating that Prague gets a bad rap because in all reality, there is a very low rate of crime, especially violent crime in Prague. I was the victim of a crime once there, but I was pickpocketed, which is very common all over Europe, but it is a nonviolent crime. Most criminals aren't as abrasive or aggressive as they are in the United States.

What it's all about

This is a hodge-podge of things from rants to recipes to tv shows to fashion to politics. Coming up with a theme would be pretty useless since most of the time I will end up discussing random things. Hopefully you will enjoy :)

Currently, I'm obsessed with Gossip Girl. Embarrassing, I know. Considering I'm a grown adult and it is geared toward preteen girls. But it's so damn good. Chuck and Blair are probably the best couple ever created in tv history.

Too bad Chuck has terrible tattoos in real life that make him look like a complete idiot. He comes up negative even with an English accent! Come on.. that's hard to do.

 disturbing, huh?
