A Little Bit of Everything

Pop Culture Interlude

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.
