TGBBO aka Bake Off used to be one if the best programmes on BBC. Much as I love Noel Fielding - of The Mighty Boosh fame - Sue, Mel and Mary Berry are irreplaceable. I just couldn't bring myself to going back to it after it transferred to Channel 4. I miss it. It was one of the few telly programmes that promoted healthy competition with an exceptional dose of creativity, fun positivity and wonderful double-entendres. Soggy bottom anyone???
I was raised Catholic on a tiny Mediterranean island so you can imagine the hold "the Church" has/(had?) on us islanders. I sussed out their b$&@/:hit, had enough of the guilt trip they constantly kept me on and left that religion many, many years ago. Whenever I have to attend mass due to family or friends' funerals/weddings/baptisms I just sit there and study the architectural details of the particular church, but I refuse to participate on any level. Accept for the "Peace be with you" bit which is the only part I like.
Catholic guilt really is the pits. So is their obsession with male-only priests.
