Our morning news anchors are something else. We watch Action 4 news every morning, eventually switching over to channel 5 news. Anyway, on channel 4, the morning anchors are 3 women who are youngish and catty. Oh my. They spend some time at the typical anchor style desk except for one segment. I don’t know what it’s called but they main 2 anchor women move to a couple of living room style chairs for a “fireside” style chat – only there’s no “fireside”…they flank a flat screen television. They discuss current events in this style.
I’m not a fan of the awards shows… don’t watch them. I am not a fashionista and don’t really care about who was wearing what. During the living room style chat segment yesterday, these 2 anchors BASHED beyond belief the big stars on the red carpet. They were relentless! It was the most catty, stereotypical female narration on other women I’ve heard in a long time. Coach & I couldn’t believe what we were hearing. They set a horrible example for what women do best. Does that make sense? Neither one of them had a single nice, positive thing to say about the women of the red carpet this morning. The knocked hairstyles, dresses, body shape… you name it. I’m waiting for a clip to be posted. I just can’t get over it.
Today is a day of errands. For me, errands mean that I have more than 2 places to go. I have 3 different stores I have to hit and a visit to the pony. Used to be I didn’t mind running like that but these days it’s a bit more difficult. All that in & out, walking back & forth… just wears a girl down. I wish I could find a store that carried ALL the items on my list. Not even the infamous Wal-Mart does it for me.
I tried to buy a hose repair kit yesterday at Wal-Mart but all the garden stuff was gone. Mind you, it’s still way up in the 90’s here. There is no winter to speak of. So watering the grass/plants is a year-round endeavor. As I made my way to the section of the store that carries all that outdoorsy type stuff, I was met with flipping Christmas junk. Already. Christmas everywhere. There are 2 little rows of Halloween things, a full section of Thanksgiving, and ¼ of the store is Christmas. What the hell? Nothing like shoving the commercialism down our throats.
Took a break and did the errands….
The pony looks SO MUCH BETTER! He’s putting that weight back on & looking pretty. It’s amazing to me how fast they will lose loads of weight & how long it takes to put it back on. Wouldn’t it be nice if it worked like that for me? A month without eating much to lose so much weight that takes a year to put on? Wow.
I managed to find a hose repair kit, got it all hooked up, sprinkler running. Beulah is NOT happy. Such is life sweet dog…
