I never do that I usually get so embarrassed for the bad singers and am wrought with anxiety for the so-so singers that I rather wait for the semifinals choose my winner and then watch the last show. I usually get the winner right 🙂
But I watched both days and it wasn’t as painful as all that . It did make me wonder though… where do some people get the notion of a non existent singing talent and the gumption to go in front of an audience and sing!! i mean I am no singer and after a few of the terrible ones I was thinking hey I do have a pretty good voice! LOL
JUST A FEW MORE THINGS ON MY MIND!
I have been feeling out of sorts recently now that I have more time to blog walk I have been finding that I can’t find the spaces that I have become accustom to visiting either people have moved without a forwarding address or they have just stopped and it makes me feel sad… and I have to agree with my Trini Friend Fay the ones that are around are still not saying much 😦 really makes you want to say knock knock anybody out there
It feels like in the old days when I was the only visitor to my space <<giggle>> But I guess like those day this space has always been about me relieving some of the noisy words mulling around in my head and not about stirring up comments :). I miss the people that are no longer here though and I wish them well. SIGH.
Also I am not enjoying the new layout and look of spaces it is back to being hard to get around <<pout>>
A bit miffed
I watch a lot of television- it is one of my vices so i will share two shows that have recently distressed me with their episodes.
I occasionally watch Private Practice, the spin off from Grey’s Anatomy, and I was so upset by their episode on the MMR vaccination. It was so alarmist and judgemental that it angered me.
I understand that vaccinations are good and necessary in keeping our children and everyone else safe from disease, but I am sorry it is hard to balance that with the fact that it may or may not cause autism. In the show this woman had a child with classic autism who she swore became autistic after being vaccinated and two un-vaccinated sons. One of the son got measles and of course died in the process causing the doctor to vaccinated the remaining son without permission. Have I mentioned that it was alarmist and judgemental.
I understand the mother’s anguish not to repeat the autism card.
For me it has been as hard swallowing this vaccination thing seeing that my eldest has been diagnosed with Autism- Thank GOD that he is not classic and is functioning good so far in this neuro-typical world. Thank God for him he is a sweetie. I can’t say that he has autism because of the MMR or one of the other vaccinations or if it is simply a combination of genetics and unfortunate circumstances, but I do know that I am SCARED and cautious. I have been tardy with my daughter I needed her to be clear and grown and strong and only then did I give in to getting her vaccinated for the MMR. I know as a child I never got a vaccination until I was about 5 or 6, I also had Measles and German measles as a child and I am still here to talk about it. I know it is possible to die from measles, but hey it is also possible to die from the common cold. My view on vaccinations especially the likes of MMR is that they are giving them to babies too early and too many at a time and honestly there is no reason that we could wait until a child is at least 3 maybe 4 to do the MMR, but I am not a doctor just a concerned, opinionated mother. So suffice it to say the show got under my skin.
Then on a lighter note
The show Ghost Whisperer had me spooked. I like some semi-scary shows some times and I think Jennifer Love Hewitt is cute or maybe I think her name is cute… whatever. It was about reincarnation and how the spirits that do reincarnate prepare the mother’s to be by speaking to them in a dream. Now I have always said that both of my children spoke to me and named themselves before they were born. My son actually told me he was a boy in that dream/conversation all along I thought I was having a girl. YIKEs needless to say that I was SPOOKED! Can both my children be reincarnates is that possible and finally do I really believe a silly show and does it EVEN MATTER LOL?! Well no it doesn’t, but the show surely had me spooked for a bit.
PHEW I am even more chatty than I thought:
I have been enjoying the puppy. He has been like a third child– a third spoilt child that is. He is as finicky eater as my daughter and sometimes would not eat unless I am standing there with him and in the beginning and actually still at night he would not venture outside… he is easily spooked LOL
It has been fun watching my chidren bond with him. Actually it is quite annoying at times because my usually ‘fearful , don’t leave me with that dog ‘ daughter has turned in to the little girl from Finding Nemo and is perpetually pulling, tugging and squeezing the air out of the puppy. My son has been great with the dog as well… it took a litte while, but he actually plays catch and chase with hime. The puppy has been great with them both patient and tolerant and nibbles righ back on them and they still love him so I am happy. Soon he will be too big to be inside all the time, BUT I am sure we will find some reason for him to lie under the computer desk by MY foot LOL
(the children very happily gave him the naughty chair and he delights in sleeping it and destroying it depending on his mood 🙂 Oh and he fights them for the chair when they decide they want it back..silly children)
So I am all chatted out -so I rambled and rambled and now I wish everyone a great weekend as I go off to stomp on some spaces
