I have already watched a bit of it. I'll see if I can find you the link...
OH MY! The 1930s loving lady looks like she's 50 years old, but the story says she's only 38!!
You KNOW how much I would love this!
oooh Fairlie - I didn't think of YouTube - you legend !Tracey - it's life without a fully automated dishwasher. That's *unnatural* I tell you.Mary - will email you ..
Is it bad, awful, terrible and/or wrong of me that I can't get past the hairstyles?-J.
That depends.Are you finding them hawt ?or horrific ?One man's passion is another man's putrid .. and all that ..
ooooohhhhmmmmyyygggggoooooodddd how good is that going to be??!!!
that sounds hilarious!!But don't you think it's pretty funny that 1930s housewife "spends hours on the internet each day sourcing items for her 1930s lifestyle"! Ha!
I find the hairstyles pretty appalling actually.Mrs. 1950s is actually an attractive woman otherwise; her I Love Lucy tresses doom her, though.Also, doing that whole time machine trip is a bit...um...touched. Sounds like they've been dating the flyboy-types from the Fedora Lounge.-J.
I think that's awesome!!! I couldn't stand it myself but good on them having some fun in their lives.
Thanks to Joke & Fairlie:http://www.channel4.com/video/time-warp-wives/index.htmlAnd guera - I *know* .. that struck me too .. ah well, i'd be the same. No kitchen of mine can go sans dishwasher .. :p
This could be the perfect front for my current state of unemployment. I'll just package my life as kitsch 1950s and make it into a feminist statement about the pressures of modern society and marriage.Goes perfectly with my new herb garden, the hair could be the clincher though. Don't know if I can do high maintenance hair.
Yes, I've seen some photos from the show. Scary. Must You Tube it.
Wooo! Time warp ladies indeed!!Couldn't they just live life on a more basic level but cut out the "I do everything for my husband" crap!!!
SF,I was thinking the exact opposite. Let them do whatever they want for their husbands but couldn't they use modern appliances to do so?-J.
I think if I was going to be a time warp lady I'd be upper class with a servant...Don't think I'm cut out to look after my husband otherwise.I can't get past the hair either...
I love Melinda's comment! That's my thoughts exactly - if I have to go all retro, I want to be the Lady of the Manor with squillions of dollars and minions doing all my housework.
It's a fun fantasy I guess but reality would be loads of children (the pill didn't hit until the 60s), and terrible unnatural fabrics. It's all very well 'choosing' to live like that but women in the past didn't have the option to chose to live a life like we have now (you know, have an education, a job, a bank account of your own, ability to buy a house without a husband's signature on the mortgage papers, ability to not have or stagger children). Not for me, I'm a big fan of the modern world and the choices it brings.
This needs to come to Australian television! I'll be there watching... (watching those crazy women!! *heehee*)
I heard the first woman on Radio 4 a while back, and she sounded lovely, if a bit, well ... you know. Unfortunately, the interviewer was unbecomingly b*tchy about her - and I kept shouting at the radio "It's up to her, and that's the whole point!" I donpt think they heard me but now the neighbours think I'm nuts too ;-)
Hey, You just read me, and this is crazy,But here's my Blogger, Comment maybe <3
