For some odd reason, I'm watching Dancing With the Stars. I really hate this show, but I only have about 8 channels, and beggars can't be choosers as my mother always likes to remind me. I've watched a few episodes this season (some of the dances turn out really neat, so it can be fun to watch), but mostly I've learned one thing:
Kate Gosselin is a bitchface.
I'm sure in person she's a very lovely person, but the attitude she projects on television is just so...haughty. Like she's too good to do any work, and she expects everything to just be handed to her. I understand that she's going through a nasty divorce and that she has a lot of crap going on in her life, but she doesn't have to be so mean to everyone because of it. I guess I shouldn't be judging, because it's probably a lot of pressure to be thrown onto a show where you have to learn all of this crazy athletic dance stuff you've never had any experience with before.
But still. She knew what she was getting herself into.
Alright, I changed the channel now. American Idol is on. What's the deal with reality TV? I'm not sure I understand the appeal. But I have a little bit of a soft spot for this one. Actually, this is the first season I've ever seen of it. But I fell in love with Big Mike when I saw his audition, and now I have to see it through to the end, because if he doesn't win, I'll be very sad. Plus, I like Simon's snarky sense of honesty. It kind of makes me laugh a little bit. And Ryan Seacrest's corn-ball-y-ness. Because, let's face it, he's the cheesiest man alive.
In other news, today was the visitation for a local police officer who took his own life this past week. He was a school liaison officer for my district, so I knew him. He was also Melissa's next door neighbor. He was a really nice, caring guy, from what I knew. It's really sad that he felt he was in such a dark place that his only solution was to take his own life. My friends and I went to the visitation, which was extremely sad. But we all wanted to be there for his family and friends. Just about the entire community showed up. There were at least a hundred cars at the church and a line out the door. He was a well-loved man.
Sorry this post is kind of depressing/not-happy. I'm actually in a pretty good mood today. White Chocolate and I practiced our song for what may be the last time. We audition tomorrow, but we're both pretty confident that we'll make it into the variety show. I'm still really excited to be doing this, even though we've been practicing it forever. It's just such so fun. :)
But today was a pretty normal day. Not nearly as sad as I made it seem (although I did give myself a pretty nasty burn while I was curling my hair, but it's on my left hand and I'm right-handed, so it doesn't matter that much).
I hope you all had a good day, too!
