Green Room - Week 10 - Day 7

When I see something I don't know much about, I ask questions. Sometimes they are dumb questions. Other times they are unintentionally dumb questions. ;)

Some of the time these are asked in order to get a general idea of where I should start looking for further information. Other times it's because I really am not interested enough to go digging, but I'm interested enough to hear from someone else who was, and who has already put in the work! :D

I find myself asking a lot of questions when it comes to "stories about celebrities" these days, because for the most part I have little to no knowledge of who these people are, what they have done with most of their life/career, and why people are talking about whatever it was that happened to them.

I have a similar blind-spot when it comes to "things that happen in Canada". Because you might as well say "Narnia". They are equally real. Canada is just Country Fanfic!

Don't even get me started on how much attention I pay to Canadian celebrities!

(In truth, if you "get me started" on it, that's a really short conversation)

It usually tends to be something "of note" that people are talking about, and it sometimes makes me curious on what, if anything, my stance would be on it - if only I knew a little more on the subject. But right now, I'm just feeling really outside that particular box. Most of the time I just assume that my friends lists know what they are talking about, so I go with their default "I'm pissed off about it!" :D

Being pissed off about something you hear about online seems the safest route!


***
The poll closes tonight, so make sure you support the writers you want to see go forward! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/897530.html

These are celebrities I can get behind following what is going on with their lives!

The new Second Chance opportunity is posted: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/897827.html for those willing to run the Gauntlet for another shot!

Frist?!?

If I don't understand something I just read along with whatever's on my social media...unless, of course, it's a topic which doesn't hold my interest. Then I just scroll on by.

The first couple times, that's usually the case - but if I see a lot of people talking about it, my ears perk up a little. Especially if folks seem to be agreeing with it.

The more people I see "on the same side" of an issue, the more it makes me wonder what the "other side" of something might be.

Ok, my doctor says I'm well enough to do this again...
... though he did also warn me to take it slow and easy. So:

...

... you're ...

...

... dead ...

...

... to ...

...

... me.


oooh, that smarts! But I managed it.

Have two cookies while you're at it; I'm feeling generous today.

Open Topic?!?!? PFFFFFFFFFFFFFT :p

(okay, it's not like I'm in a position to bicker but I'd be saying the same thing if I hadn't byed out, LOL).

On one hand - "Oh, open topic - I can write anything!"

On the other - "Omg... I have *no structure*. I can write anything I want to write... *pressure*"!!

Morning everybody! Beautiful weekend in Cincinnati, Oh! We sucked it up and joined Ancestry.com. Man! It's more addicting than any game! (It's a game in itself!) I found a 2nd cousin already...(living!) Hub and I also went for a country drive and hit up an old graveyard about 50 miles away. We found his grandma's ancestors there...well about 6 of them.

We're living "Who do You Think You Are?" and "Finding Your Roots"!

We've been cleaning our apartment all weekend because we have a guest arriving today (cleaned, in this case, meaning "taking every single object and moving it to six different places before finally resettling it in a new spot"). In about an hour, I'm getting my pupils dilated for a diabetic eye exam. I've read everything but will try to comment when my vision returns.

This has been a really great week for entries, though.

Ugh, I hate getting my pupils dilated. Not for diabetes but there's been glaucoma in my family so I get tested every time I have an exam :/

Hahahaha!

Things are always more interesting in Garyland. Unless you're Canadian. Or a hippie...

I'm usually hearing about random stuff through this here Green Room (you do the "perk up the ears" work for me!), or via my son. Used to be my daughter too, but since she went to college... not so much. :(

Ok, I've been ignoring this for a few days.

Anybody want to summarize the Kesha thing and why we're all pissed in three sentences or less?

I've got that she's a singer, and there's an issue with her contract.

Alleged abuse of various forms, but can't release music elsewhere, because contract. So career is either on permanent hiatus or dead. (There may be more, not sure.)

Know what I can't get behind? The fact that I've been out sick since last night. Had a fever that went up to 103 last night. It's hovering around the lower 100s now, but this seriously blows.

I'm going to hazard a guess that your post is either about the primaries, or more likely, Kesha. For the former, I live in California, where things only really matter after the primaries are over. CA always goes blue, regardless who is running.

For the latter, while I don't listen to Kesha's music, I am a musician, and watching this whole thing unfold is heartbreaking. I disagree with the court's decision on Friday, most definitely.
