Okay, I think this is my first official post of 2013. It’s 3:45am, so when I’m done with this, I’m going to bed.
1. Lance Armstrong: admitted to using performance enhancing drugs in an interview with Oprah Winfrey of all people.
You kinda saw this coming, still I’m shocked. He was good without all that crap. Now his legacy is tarnished forever.
2. Manti Te’o and his fake dead girlfriend.
I believe the kid when he says he was a victim of a scam called “Catfishing”. What being Catfished means, basically, is that someone sets up a fake social media account with the express purpose to dupe unsuspecting people into online romances, usually coming up with some bullshit excuse as to why they will never meet. In Te’o's case, his fake girlfriend had cancer and conveniently died hours after the death of Manti’s very real grandmother. I feel bad for him, I really do. Now people are saying that he must have known about it or participated in it in some way. I honestly think he is a victim in all this.
3. Inauguration’s this weekend and people are STILL pissed Romney lost!
The bitching and moaning is back on on Facebook and Twitter. They’re dooming and glooming the next 4 years. All I have to say to all that is STFU and get over it. Romney lost. Deal with it.
4. It’s not about the Second Amendment, stupid. You can keep your freakin’ guns. But do you REALLY need an assault weapon?
People seem to think that if guns were curtailed, then tragedies like Sandy Hook and Aurora, CO wouldn’t happen. The President is trying to remedy that situation by taking steps that Congress and the Senate won’t (because they’d fight over it and nitpick at the issue until it doesn’t even resemble what was trying to be accomplished). I liked the idea of putting the assault weapon ban back in place, mainly because the ordinary Joe American does NOT need an assault weapon to defend his home and family. Let’s face it, unless you’re military, police, or some other (law abiding) person who is authorized to have said weapons, you have no freakin’ business with an AK 47.
5. “American Idol” and its slipping ratings.
What a surprise. Not. If you’re an artist and really want to make it in the music biz, be prepared to work for it. No TV talent show is going to take the place of working your ass off to earn a spot in the music business. Pay your dues!
And having said all that, I’d like to remind you that these are my opinions, and any comment made are moderated first.
I’m going to bed, it’s 4:30amCST…add or subtract the appropriate number to find out what time it is in your time zone.
I’m Stef, and this is where it’s @ !~
