Is the Commando our biggest water wally?

I apologise for not using one of my nifty song quotes for the title. But I have a headache. I didn't drink nearly enough water this afternoon and now I feel like my brain is trying to escape through my left eye.

That's why I'm blogging instead of sleeping. Anyway. So to the title of this post. Normally we are too busy cooking tea and I don't usually see The Biggest Loser but tonight I caught some of it and I was aghast. That's right, aghast. The Commando.... is a water wally. He was using a hose and spraying contestants telling them 'toughen up.. its just like rain'. 

What a tool. Or the producers of the show are. It's not like they would be spraying them with bore water. Would they? Nah. 

I was disgusted. Do you know what else I was disgusted about tonight? The huge slug in my broccoli. All day I've been hanging out for some lightly steamed broccoli and as I was putting it on my plate I saw it. This yellow caterpillar/enormous maggot creature. It was horrible. I couldn't eat any broccoli, and of course the man being such a delicate little thing threw all his out as well. I still ate the rest of my vegies because I was hungry. 

I am not sure if I should be happy the vegetables at Coles are so...fresh or if I should be freaked out about how many other little creatures I've probably eaten in the past. Seriously, it looked like an enormous maggot. No I didn't take a photo. Yes, wishing I had now.

I'm not sure which is the most alarming (a) there is a water wally on national television or (b) there is someone who hangs out all day for steamed broccoli.

Those horrid little creatures are always on broccoli. Ugh, my skin is crawling right now, and there go the goosebumps.
Our veges generally consist of broccoli and carrots, as that is what everyone eats, but I am so careful to flick those things off when prepping the broccoli.

Oh God Rae. I probably HAVE just been eating them! The man just informed me that there were more on the ones at Coles..except they were green. Which means the one I bought was green (which explains how I didn't see it). Of course, then when I cooked it - it turned white. Like a maggot.

It was possibly grey water! *LOL* which only makes it funnier, really.
