Sometimes I drift off at work a bit. It’s not like I actually fall asleep or anything…I just let my mind wander. But sometimes on a break or during lunch I’ll hear or read something online that sticks with me.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had enough downtime during the day at work to actually write down some random comments, but today is the day.
Why today? Danged if I know. But what I usually do is just jot something down and then finish these thoughts once I’m home. And for whatever reason, people seem to enjoy my random take on the world…
I was thinking this morning about my son and his newfound want to chitter-chatter randomly. Yes…my son is now talking! Well…sort of. The Ankle Biter is apparently mimicking and repeating words that he hears…but only when he wants to. That means he’s totally able to speak, which is awesome and a bit of a relief. On the other hand, there’s no time table on when he’ll actually feel like talking full-time, which is just “meh” in my book. And yes…I realize that I’ll be wishing he’d STOP talking soon enough, but I’m wanting to hear words come out of his mouth soooo badly right now. It’s just the next step in his glorious evolution.
What is this…the real-life version of “Footloose”? I cannot believe that in his day and age, there are people still out there that want to ban dancing, rock music, and hand-holding. Honestly…is this the 1950′s all over again?? I’m glad that this teenager is getting a ton of publicity because I think the school needs to have the microscope placed on them. If you want to look at society and why the “moral fibre” is decaying, you need to stop looking at dancing and rock music and Janet Jackson’s nipple and the occassional F-bomb on live television. Instead, you need to start looking in the mirror…look at people like us: the parents. No, not every child will grow up perfectly. But too many kids are not being raised as well as they should be. Whether it’s because of an absentee father or that the parents just don’t take enough of an active role in their children’s lives…there are a LOT bigger issues in the world than dancing and rock music. I realize “rules are rules”, but to suspend this teenager for attending a prom AT ANOTHER SCHOOL is just stupid. Or maybe I’m just splitting hairs…am I?
Speaking of Footloose (which upon attempted viewing earlier this year with K was absolutey unviewable…just a brutal piece of film-making with an incredible soundtrack), there is a remake in the works. Seriously…out of all the movies you could remake, this one tops your list? Well…at least it’s not like they’re doing a remake of Fame or anything. That would be just silly. Uh oh…
- I’ve totally fallen off of the 30/30/30 wagon. It’s horrible. I’ve got no excuse other than “I’m lovin’ life and livin’ large!”…but the only thing getting large is my stomach. Heh. But that’s okay…I’ve got faith in myself. I just need to sit back and say, “CBG (’cause that’s what I call myself)…you need to stop acting like a pig and start getting healthier!! If for no other reason, you can’t afford new clothes!!!” Yeah…that’ll be incentive enough. Right?
- I think I’m lactose intolerant. Well………..doesn’t that suck.
Ahhh…Miss California. She’s quite the character. Forget talking about the whole anti-gay-marriage sentiment for a second, she’s really turning out to be QUITE the liar. It’s odd. I mean, nobody’s perfect…but wouldn’t you think that this woman would be smart enough to know that if you’re under the media spotlight that you simply CAN’T lie and get away with it?? C’mon…that one “topless” pic was the only one? Well…where did THIS one come from? But hey…you were 17 and easily manipulated into doing shots that maybe weren’t in your best interests. No biggie, really…next time just tell people up front about them when the Pageant asks you. And then that’s it, right? No more! Ummm…then where in the hell did THESE TOPLESS PICTURES COME FROM??? They were taken last year!! WTF?? Did you think they wouldn’t appear?? Oh…that’s right…IT WAS A WINDY DAY!!! Ummm…sure thing, babe. Then why didn’t you button-up your frickin’ top?? Listen, I’m FAR from upset about her being topless…hell, I’m a MAN and I think nudity is a beautiful thing. JUST STOP LYING ABOUT IT!!! She’s truly pathetic. Why aren’t her 15 minutes over yet?
American Idol wraps up soon, with the “final 3″ singing for their reality show lives this week. Simon Cowell seems to believe that Adam Lambert has it sewn up. I dunno…the guy can sing and all, but his voice annoys the f*ck out of me. Maybe it’s because I’m a straight male…I dunno. For me, Danny Gokey has been my favorite from the start. The guy’s got a set of pipes on him and real soul. He seems to be the most genuine. But I understand Lambert’s got the most star power. Oh well…I’ll still watch. You never know…they’ve both been in the bottom two once, so to call one a far-and-away favorite just isn’t realistic at this point. It’s still anybody’s ballgame. Go Danny!!
- I’ve been thinking about K a lot recently. A lot. It sucks, because circumstances have dictated that we’ll never be together in the way that we wanted to be (because of distance, timing, blah blah blah)…but I have a lot of fond memories of our time together. It probably says a lot that I’m not out there actively dating right now. I’m just not ready, I guess. I don’t think I’m “hung up” on her or anything, but I until I find a connection with somebody that’s even half of what I had with K, I’ll continue to live happily single. From what I hear, she’s doing well and trying to move on with her life. I just really hope she’s happy…because that’s all I’ve ever wanted for her.
Hey…I enjoyed Joan Rivers on Celebrity Apprentice as much as the next person, but when you’re wrong…you’re wrong. Joan should ABSOLUTELY APOLOGIZE for her “Annie Duke is worse than Hitler” comment, but instead has decided to “stand behind it“. I mean…really? You’re insane, you’re sad, and you’re ugly as f*ck. Seriously…you paid over $100,000 for that face?? It looks like you paid somebody a sh*tload of money to whack you across the face with an ugly stick. I mean, it looks like you fell out of the top of the ugly tree and your face hit every branch on the way down. Suck it up, Chuckie. Admit you said something really stupid and apologize for it and move on with whatever it is you do.
- In a pretty neat surprise (wait…did I just say “neat” in a sentence??), this very blog was featured on the Canadian website www.Blogs.ca. I’ve got nothing else to say about it…I just wanted to brag a bit.
