I’m going to take a page out of Sara’s book, and write something just for me. Chef is at work, my household chores are done, my animals are all snuggly and happy, and I’m pretty much caught up with my regular television programs. I wrote a post this morning that freaked some people out, but even now when I read it, I don’t really understand why, so I’m not too bothered by the comments…In the end, I know we Christians all want the same thing for our fellow unsaved mankind, and that is for he/she to find the Lord, no matter what initially lures her/him to God. We are all going to have our own opinions on how to best do that, but that is okay, too. God is all things to all of us, right?
Add to these things is the fact that I’m trying to quit smoking. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, I’m edgy, irritable, and going through withdrawals. Thanks to Pink though, I have a little relief in the form of an e-cigarette, but just so you all know…This
sucks isn’t fun. I’m considering rolling up one of Chef’s nicotine patches and smoke it…
Now for maybe the embarrassing part. I have a few shows that I watch specifically only when I’m feeling like a b..brat.. 🙂 , and two of them are Khloe & Lamar and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. I know, I know..my whole family thinks it is ridiculous, but I don’t mind saying that I like that family. I don’t agree with 90% of the way they live their lives, but my guess is the way I live mine would be appalling to them 90% of the time, too. So, it all balances out. I don’t care about all that…I like the way they are with each other, and how they sit in front of a camera and try to be honest with an entire world who frankly doesn’t spend a lot of time appreciating the amount of honesty it must take to let people follow you around all the time with cameras so the whole world can see you fall on your face. Yes, they get paid well for it, but I don’t know if that could sooth some of the wounds this family has taken smack in their faces before. And frankly, if someone would follow me around with a camera and I could get paid that kind of money for it, I’d just jump at the chance…I’m used to people watching me stumble around!! Might as well get paid, right?
Anyways, I actually like the Khloe & Lamar series a little better than the other one…Out of all the Kardashians, I like Khloe the best. She is a little blunter, a little more self-honest, and she prioritizes in a way I can understand and agree with. She’s the one always delivering the hard facts to the rest of her family… Lamar, Khloe’s husband and an NBA basketball player has been struggling with this trade to Dallas, causing some stress in their marriage. So, Khloe pulled the plug on their show, proving that the success of her marriage and well-being of her husband meant more to her than a ton of money. I like that about her. Cool chick.
Getting back to my own story, though.
Here I am sitting on my bed in my room, puffing my electric cigarette in such a way that I’m sure to use all 5 nicotine canisters in one sitting, wondering if smoking a nicotine patch is actually something that could be done, purposely ignoring my telephone and refusing to check my emails for fear of drawing blood on the unsuspecting innocent, and trying to remember that this is just another stupid addiction. I’ve tried explaining to my own brain that this could be a time to try some mind over matter exercises, while my brain answers back with ugly things I can’t write on a blog….
Watching Khloe & Lamar deal with their own lives has caused an uncommon reaction in me. I started bawling my eyes out!!
I just watched the episode where the L.A. Lakers flashed a tribute to the visiting Dallas Maverick Lamar Odom, after this poor guy had been stressing for days about how he would be received in L.A. And I cried my eyes out… How wonderful of that community to empathize with Lamar and put something together to show their appreciation.
And the more I cried, the more ridiculous I felt, so I’d start laughing while crying, and now my dogs are looking at me like I’ve lost my mind…
Maybe I have!
Seriously, Bird! Khloe & Lamar?…. 😮
