I’m borrowing the theme for today as well as the cute little button up above from my bloggy friend Michele. It’s Tuesday, and I’m feeling random…actually I’m just all over the place today. It’s a case of too many things to do and not knowing where to start. So today I’m gonna ramble a little randomly and you’ll just have to settle for that.
My first random thought is I absolutely adore Sam Champion – if you aren’t familiar with morning tv, he’s only THE weather forecaster from NYC on Good Morning America. This is the happiest man in the world and watching him tell me about the news always makes me smile. He can be standing in the midst of a hurricane and he will still laugh at something. That’s my kinda person. So imagine my dismay as I’m sitting in church Sunday and my pastor comes out with this sage advice…..”Don’t watch “Bad Morning America”. WHAT? Not watch my beloved Sam Champion? I don’t think so. Okay, I understood what he was saying and when you put it in context he was talking about our general obsession with news and nonsense of the day. I get it. But I’ll give up CNN…I’ll quit reading our local pitiful newspaper, I’ve got NO PROBLEM skipping Regis and Kelly whats-her-name…but I am not leaving my Sam. Nope, not gonna do it. I need me some Sam.
Random thought Number 2: Hillary Clinton for Supreme Court Justice. That made me laugh almost as much as just watching Sam Champion; but with Sam it’s a happy laugh; with Hillary it was a laugh caused by mass panic. Hallelujah for rumors and finding out the rumors are not true. Breathing easier now.
Another random thought flies through my head….I’m really, I mean really, getting tired of all the brouhaha going on with the Pope and whether or not he allowed a “bad priest” to stick around. Ya know – I got issues with the Pope period. If that man would go into his Pope Palace and make a few wise decisions to sell some of the HUGE art collection and then take that money and…oh, I dunno…maybe feed the poor and help the hurting people around the world….I think I would have more respect for him. I don’t remember reading any parable in the bible about amassing the wealthiest church in the world in order to love your brother. Nope, seems to me I remember something about Jesus advising one to sell all their goods and follow him. Between the ridiculous celibacy issue (and no I can find nowhere that celibacy for anyone serving the church is biblical), the amazing pain that some priests have caused children and others, and the outrageous display of wealth, I’m about fed up with the Catholic hierarchy. No hate mail, please, remember these are MY random thoughts.
More random garbage from my brain…I’m sick of hearing of Conan O’Brien and now that he’s going to TBS…well, congratulations; can we talk about something else now? Like which celebrity is sexting whom? Yeah, I haven’t had enough of Jesse or Tiger — (yes that’s sarcasm; if I hear one more story about these people I may strangle myself to put me out of my misery.) The next big hype is going to be the book about to come out by that illustrious biographer (more sarcasm) Kitty Kelly on everybody’s favorite, Oprah (uh-huh more sarcasm). News is dear Kitty interviewed something like 800 folks for this books; one of whom was John Tesch (remember him) and John Tesch actually admits to having a fling with Oprah. I’m sorry – the visual is making my eyes bleed and I may indeed simply implode. Ick Factor 12.
Okay last random thought…I got such a kick out of a recent interview of our president as he was asked about Sarah Palin’s skewering of him on nukes and you could see his face — the man was totally ticked – and he came out with this lame response about how he didn’t think Sarah was too knowledgeable about nuclear weapons — I just snorted coz I’m not so sure he knows much about it either. Personally, I think we’re all in a heap of trouble but that’s going down a road I don’t want to travel – I try not to get political here. I just laugh at all these people snarking back and forth at each other. It’s always somebody’s else’s fault, isn’t it?
It’s time – Sam is on “Let’s get to the boards” (happy sigh) – so I get some blinding smiles now. Come back tomorrow; I’m gonna talk about boobs…sigh…
