Okay, most of my posts are about topics that entail a lot of thought. Today I feel like commenting on a bit of pop culture so bear with me.
1) Kate Gosselin. I saw her on the cover of a magazine today with her new hairdo. She annoys the hell out of me. I used to watch Jon and Kate plus eight but stopped because of her. She was just such a hypocrite.
She would yell and shout at Jon all the time but if he dared to do the same, she’d flip her shit. In the same way, she would hit him a lot and pass it off as ‘good fun’ or something but I bet, if he tried that with her, she’d call it abuse and call the cops or something. She can dish it out but can’t take it.
Because I’m a woman, people expect me to be on Kate’s side, but I am firmly on Jon’s side. Good on him for getting out when he could. Kate’s a jerk.
2) Evan Almighty. I saw the last third of it on TV the other day. Although I realise there are tons of jokes, I just can’t bring myself to laugh. Why? The story of Noah’s Ark. I just have a lot of difficulty deriving amusement from a story that is about an entity that suddenly decides that it has the right to decide that certain lives should be destroyed. I find this very sad. Why is this story featured in Sunday School? Why are children being taught that it’s okay to decide who lives and who dies?
I just find the whole thing slightly disturbing.
So there you go. Next post should be about another topic that requires more musing, I just don’t know what it is yet.
