Thursday Thoughts

Today you get my post where I rant about things going on in the news and media. Why? Because we are still buried in snow and it has put me in a "ranty" mood. Hopefully I'll be able to share about my weekend in Vermont soon - still waiting to get a few more photos from the girls on the trip!

I'm surprised that Brian Williams got suspended for 6 months. I don't think what he did is right but I also think there is probably more to the whole story that we don't know. And why did it just come out now, years later, that he lied? If they plan on firing him in the end why not just do it now? Oh and can you believe he makes 10 MILLION a year! So he'll lose out on 5 million but really when you have that much money does it really matter that much? I like him and I'm sad that this happened. . .

What the heck is wrong with Kayne West?! I really can't stand him. Why does he think it is ok for him to say and do the things he says and does?! Beck won. Get over it. I'm not even going to link to anything about him b/c I don't think he needs any more attention than he already receives. I don't care for the Kardashians but I can tolerate them way more than him! Just go away Kayne.

I was so impressed that the Grammys took a few minutes out of the show to bring awareness to domestic violence. Brook Axtell's speech was amazing and powerful.

Why oh why are some towns closing school for this entire week????  The snow storm was Monday. Get your act together and get the sidewalks and bus stops plowed or clean the snow off your roofs a little faster so that kids can go back to school. The worst part is that next week is February school vacation in Mass so kids will be off for 2 weeks after just having 2 weeks off at Christmas. Totally unnecessary. I feel bad for working parents who don't have childcare and are forced to take time off.

The Bachelor. . . where do I begin. . . this season kind of sucks. Chris is boring. There are some girls who are straight up crazy per usual but so crazy you can't even stand watching them for another second (yes I'm talking to you Kelsey and your fake panic attack). Britt started out sweet and cute but I'm so over her at this point. The dates this season are just weird. The one with Chris, Carly and the "intimacy mentor" was probably the most awkward thing I've ever seen. The producers missed the mark on that one. Then this week the date with Chris and Becca was BORING! She is sweet but all they did was giggle. Ugh! Of course I'll keep watching which is what makes me so mad. I don't even like it and they've sucked me in until the end and every season after that! If you want to read a hilarious recap go here.

I wonder if as many people would come to my memorial as this dog's? Wrangler has more followers on Twitter than I do. . . people just LOVE dogs. Lol!

That's all folks. Hope you have a wonderful Thursday. Leave me a comment on anything your want to rant about today!

Thoughts for Thursday


  1. omg i hear you on kayne. he needs to just permanently hush already. he thinks the winners should be for popular music as opposed to other factors that come into it as well. he said he won't be back and i'm happy for that.

  2. I love that we both are over the whole Kayne and Brian Williams stories. Lol. I like Brian Williams too. I'm sad about what happened. But you are right, there has to be more to this story.

    I hope y'all have warmer temperatures soon! :)

  3. um yes on Kanye. He is so stinking RUDE. Like seriously. And I'm also convinced he would leave Kim for Beyonce in a NY Minute. It's insane how just plain rude he is.

    And yes, we love our dogs :) lol.

  4. Quincy got covered in snow. So bad that the roof of the Quincy shipyard collapsed under the weight of the snow.

    I think the schools are worried about roof collapses, and losing heat if power goes out.
