thoughts on writing and then some pop culture ranting...

My heart has been heavy lately with so many things that I'd love to write about, but I just don't feel like sharing them with the world. I know that people read this from literally around the world, but I have no idea who, why, or how. But I love that somehow God uses things like blogs, despite the funny name they've been given, to connect people's hearts. Complete strangers can read the thoughts of someone else and find themselves laughing, crying, or just thinking alongside someone else. I think that's just a beautiful thing, and that's why I continue to write on this...some things nonsensical and whimsical and pointless and some things I share are teachable moments I've experienced in my own life. No matter what I'm writing about, I love the expression because sometimes writing just lets me feel a little bit more like myself.

(warning: mental whip-lash...)

But then there are moments like right now when I just have to unload all of my nonsensical thoughts on pop culture just because I can. And right now I feel like I have to get these little tidbits off my mind:

a) If I hear Chris Brown's song "With You" one more time I might actually puke. That may be an exaggeration, but it may actually happen. The song is stuck in my head right now and I'm going insane, because I can't even understand the words. just a "hey little shawty" and a "withyouwithyouwithyouwithyouwithyou" every now and again. And might I add to this list of songs I might puke if i hear again the following: Usher's "Love in this Club" and Ray J's "Sexy Can I"? Oh, and Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" but keep reading for more thoughts on her...

b) The entertainment world must be out of stuff to talk about, because I think I heard at least 5 times the other day that Jordin Sparks had to cancel on the rest of her tour due to her vocal cord something or other...WE KNOW ALREADY!

c) I'm still not really sick of singing the echo parts on Flo-Rida's song "Low." In fact, my 5-year-old niece called me last night singing it...which may not be a good thing?

d) Mariah Carey needs to stop making music. Why? Because it's all awful. Sure the girl's got range, but her songs need serious help. Maybe "someday...hey hey..."

e) Re: American Idol. Every Thursday morning it seems America is mystified by the results of the prior night's show. At this point America, who really cares? By now we should all know that every one of these people is going to be offered some kind of record deal, and haven't we learned our lesson that it has nothing to do with their most recent performance? So honestly? I don't care who wins. They're all good at this point. I can pick favorites, but it just doesn't matter unless I feel like texting or calling until my fingers fall off. But there's no reason to get upset about it.

f) I'm completely intrigued by the people in Eldorado, TX and how their cult works and how these ladies are brainwashed. I really wish I could help them somehow...they need some serious truth spoken into their lives, because they've been lied to for way too long.

g) I'm so happy that Brothers & Sisters is back. I feel like it's a family reunion with me and the Walker family.

h) I need to find something to do with my life. I clearly watch too much TV and listen to the radio way too much. Please someone help me find something better to do?

Whew! OK, I feel better now...

You're totally cracking me up! I agree with you on everything besides Brothers and Sisters, only because I don't watch that show. Look forward to seeing you next weekend!
