So. Are you interested in my thoughts on Jon and Kate Plus the brood?
People cheat. People get caught cheating. It’s happening every day. All over the world. Only…their little adventures are part of our nations media coverage.
They made a lot of money being in the public eye, I am assuming.
How can they even utter a complaint?
As for the couple being upset over the media following them. Answer me this…
What in the world did they expect to happen? They have a popular (and I have no clue why) show on one of the cable channels. They have been in the limelight for a few years now. Cameras have been focused on their every move. After all, THEY ARE part of the REALITY t.v craze…right. So how can they get upset that their affairs (yeah, pun intended) are being made public?
They should have thought of that before they dotted their t’s and crossed their i’s…or whatever it is they do to sell their soul to syndicated television…
And, by the way, I can proudly say…I’ve NEVER watched the show. Just all of the media coverage about it is starting to annoy me. But, I’m easily annoyed.
On to bigger and more betterest things…
As you may or may not know…or care, for that matter…
I’ve been in the process of planning my step-daughters Bat Mitzvah. Well, the day is almost here. A week from Saturday. I’m hoping all my Oriental Trading stuff arrives…on time. And I’m hoping I ordered more than enough food. I really hope it goes smoothly, for my daughters sake.
Wanna know what I’ve noticed, while planning this event on an EXCEPTIONALLY limited budget?
Gonna tell ya…
You don’t have to spend a fortune to get everything you want.
I said it.
I had a tiny. minute. itty, bitty budget.
And I was still able to hire a photographer. A very popular D.J company WITH an M.C. Awesome giveaways. A ton of crap from Oriental Trading…which, by the way…is a great catalog for parties! A local caterer (although, the one I REALLY wanted…Carlo…I couldn’t use:( ).
People in my area…and I’m sure other areas…who plan their childrens Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, try to outdo each other. They make theirs like weddings. And they are all so competitive. It’s REALLY disgusting. And it REALLY teaches their children the WRONG lessons.
And in planning my event…I realized, even more so, how obnoxious and pretentious these people are. Because my daughter is having pretty much THE SAME THING as all of those wedding types…
minus the elaborate centerpieces. And minus the ballroom of our expensive hotels.
But it’s going to be a party for the kids. With swimming. And dancing. And volleyball. And basketball. And copious amounts of yummy food.
And no alcohol. Which…SUCKS.
So, I’m going to have to have a bottle of wine stashed in my car to bong down before arriving at the party. NOT kidding.
But I’m nervous. I want my daughter to love her Bat Mitzvah. And to have amazing memories from it. Even if it was just her step-mother planning it. With no help…at all…from the real Mom. Not that I needed her help. But I wonder how my daughter is going to feel. When she looks back on her party. Is she going to question why it is that her mother didn’t help. Or is she just going to realize that it was how it was…always. For everything.
And THAT is as random as you are going to get from me today.
Hey…I have a couple of guest posters lined up for next week. I would like a couple more. If you’re interested, please…let me know. I won’t be in the right mind to think of posting. My little guy will be pretty much done with pre-school. And I’ll be in the final stages of the Bat Mitzvah planning.
I’d appreciate it!!
