A Little Bit of Everything

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.

  1. I don’t really understand why Kate and Jon are famous… especially now. They have no services or talents they can really offer to the public, so why do we feature them in all of our tabloids? And I agree with you… Kate is a piece of work.
