I’ve been pretty busy and haven’t had much of a chance to blog recently, so I figured I would sum up this past week’s most interesting stories:
1. For those of you who care, Kim Kardashian just filed for divorce… after being married for 72 days. And just a refresher: the wedding cost $10 million. And Kim made about $18 million off of it.
So there are several things I just don’t understand. First, why is Kim Kardashian still relevant? I wish the media would just stop following her and her attention-seeking family so we didn’t have to hear about them anymore. Please go away, “Kardashian Klan.”
Second, for everyone that things that homosexuality ruins the sanctity of marriage… please turn to exhibit A, Kim Kardashian. Are you joking? So it’s completely okay for a fame-seeking, attention-obsessed socialite to get millions of dollars thrown at her for her obscenely extravagant wedding, only to seek a divorce 72 days later, but a truly loving same-sex couple cannot be together? Interesting. Kim Kardashian sure as hell didn’t get married for “true love.”
And of course, I just have to share some of the tweets that have been floating around since the divorce news came out…
Aaaaand cut. No more talk of the Kardashians. On to the next one.
2. For those of you
who care who live under a rock, Jessica Simpson is pregnant. Yeah, everyone knew that already. But she decided to make it “official” on Halloween. Next story…
3. As referenced above (in tweet #3), Jet Blue apparently left airline passengers stranded on the tarmac for more than seven hours because of poor weather and overcorwding at the airport.
Have we not been through this before? How many other stories like this have there been and still the airlines don’t get it?? Albert Einstein said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? I guess this means that airlines are run by insane people?
4. Apparently Herman Cain faced sexual harassment allegations in the 90′s. This little fun fact just came out in the last couple of days. He first denied knowing anything about it, then tried to explain how the allegations were “baseless” and settled out of court.
I don’t know what to think about this. Part of me is just so immune to political messes like this that it doesn’t even faze me. Part of me wants to shake him (and Kim K, and Jet Blue employees…) and ask him why the hell did you think you could lie about the existence of these allegations?? The truth always comes out, my friend. Even if the allegations were false, they still existed.
So it looks like Obama will be around for another 4 years since no on in the Republican party seems to be sane/intelligent/normal. Except for Huntsman. But no one seems to care about him for some reason.
5. And of course, this little tidbit: the world population just surpassed 7 billion. This is great news. Now we can wait longer at the Post Office lines and my commute to work will now take an hour and 45 minutes as opposed to an hour and a half.
And there is your important news for the past week. You’re welcome.
