You know, this is the third time I’ve rewritten this entry. I sat down to write some mopey crap to make myself feel better, but I’m just not going to do it. Nuh-uh, not gonna. Because…1. Life’s too short
2. There are people with real problems in the world
3. I can’t help but laugh when I turn on my TV and conservative pundit Tucker Carlson is twirling around like a princess on Dancing with the Stars
I’ve actually become completely mesmerized now! How can I focus on writing when celebrities like Joey Lawrence, Jerry Springer and ex-Gator Emmitt Smith are swiveling their hips in front of my eyes? I never thought I’d see the day when I would sit down to watch stuff like this! Sorry, that’s beside the point.
Barring all negativity, what does that leave me with? Hmmm…another installment of random crap?
So I was driving down Sunrise Boulevard the other day and I saw a billboard that caught my eye. It had tropical trees on it and a beautiful sunset. Then I read the the sign and saw ‘Tahiti.com’ splashed across in an exotic script. I was thinking, “Huh! Tahiti! I’ve always wanted to go there!” With a cat named after one of its islands, I was about to take it as a sign, pack my bags and go, when I looked again and realized that it didn’t actually say ‘Tahiti,’ but ‘ToHaiti.’ I didn’t really think Haiti was a really huge tourism advocate–I always thought the only people who go there are the Haitian Diaspora returning to visit family members and church missionaries. It’s no wonder, when your advertising campaign reads like this:
“Haiti has had and continues to have a very negative image internationally. Much of the negativity is based on misconceptions, but quite an amount is based on the reality of life in a country with a high crime rates, institutional corruption, lack of civic pride, and a reputation as a facilitator of trafficking in narcotics and illegal US immigrants.”
Come on, who wants to go? I’ve got two spare days of vacation time left this year and they’ve got flights direct from Miami!
Back to thoughtless reality TV for a moment. Sadly, tonight was the finale of Big Brother. Whatever will I do on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from now on? No more Chill Town? Noo! I was given one consolation this week when I officially became a myspace “friend” of Will Kirby! Okay, so everyone else has about a bajillion famous people who they’ve never met on their friends list too, but he’s my first ever. Aww, a moment I’ll never forget.
Holy crap, AC Slater can dance! Sorry, distracted by the TV again…
So much for this random post. The only thing that’s random are my scattered thoughts and the list of celebrities that have continually distracted me for the past hour as I’ve tried to write this thing. Well, one way or another I feel better, so mission accomplished!
