I felt like I had some things I wanted to unload from my brain. So, I started letting my mind wander a bit. I wondered:
…what was the big deal about Jodie Foster’s Golden Globes speech? Sorry if you got it and I didn’t, but what in the world was she talking about? OK, she’s gay. OK, she hasn’t been acting in a while. OK, she doesn’t really want to. OK, she’s single. WHAT AM I MISSING?! And why was everyone crying? Granted, I had to remind myself that the room was filled with a bunch of liquored-up actors. So, crying comes kinda easily to them, but still — it was just odd. Again, sorry if you were completely moved by it and I sound ignorant or something.
…about a girl who was in my 7th grade class. She dressed very…maturely (AKA slutty). And, was known for her mini skirts, knee socks and heels. Everyone always talked about how she looked like a “high schooler” and I also think she was held back a year or two. So, that might explain a little bit, but now that we’re older — I wonder how she dresses today. Does she still dress older for her age…like now it would be pastel nylon pants and floral collared shirts. Or, has she kept up her provocative dress, keeping it young — perusing Forever 21, Delia’s and places of the sort?
…how the elderly get free passes at saying inappropriate things. I fully, completely believe in respecting your elders, and octogenarians have a special little cozy place in my heart. But, man — sometimes it drives me crazy when rude, nasty, inappropriate, creepy and questionable things come out of their mouths. Now, I know age can be blamed for certain slip-ups — but I can’t help but think that maybe, age aside, that person was always like that. Maybe at 20, 30, 40 years old — they were saying the same type of things to people. So, I don’t necessarily believe in always letting older people get away with diarrhea of the mouth and inappropriate behavior — I just think there’s a way to “deal” with them differently.
…how annoying Linkedin invitations are. 98% of the time, I have no idea who these people are or why I should be “connected” to them. Just like with most social media, Linkedin seems to just be a mad dash to a certain number of followers, “friends”, etc. And, with Linkedin, that number is “500+ connections.”
…how I finally, finally got to the point where if Sex and the City is on TV, I don’t automatically want to watch it. I actually experienced this today. I am pretty proud of myself for choosing to watch something more intellectual in lieu of it. I won’t tell you what that is, though — just let me have my little moving-on moment.
