Why haven't I won the Nobel Prize in Literature for this amazing blog yet?! Do they even award it to blog writers?! Well, I'm here to say that due to my incredible magnetic fascinating content and witty writing style, I deserve that damn prize! GIVE IT TO ME! ARGH! I really need that money! LOLOLOLOL!
Ya gotta hand it to that Susan Boyle. She has the #1 album in America and many other countries and has already sold millions! I've heard some of the songs, and although I do think she has a nice voice, I don't think I'll be running out to buy it, because I think it'd put me to sleep right away. She covers many well-known songs, but I think the audience for this type of musak is older folk, many of whom actually bought actual CD copies, because they just don't bother with digitally downloading like us young folk do. I think Susan's had a long hard life being ignored and unwanted, and now she's practically on top of the world. I think this is a tremendously inspiring story, and gives hope to many, including myself. Although not as homely as Susan, I can still make it in show business somehow! It's never too late! I think.
My friend showed me a bit of Oprah's Xmas Special at the White House Sunday night, and it was soooooooooo ridiculously phony, yet fascinating! The inside of the official presidential residence is really beautiful; I mean, they live like royalty in a very palatial mansion. And unlike us mere mortals who have to decorate our own homes with the lights and tree, the Obamas have other people do it for them. They also get cooked and cleaned for too. MUST BE NICE. My friend remarked that the gingerbread White House replica was excessive and wasteful. LOLOLOL! Yes, and guess who pays for all this? UH HUH. You know it. It was nice to see Bo the dog though, he is adorable and very well-trained. Sometimes I really wish I was a spoiled dog with a nice decent home. I wouldn't have to worry about a thing.
I watched a film from 1939 called The Women, starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, and Rosalind Russell. Good movie, but lots of cackling and gossiping--my beloved bud said it was the original Sex and the City. There are absolutely no men in this picture, even though the director was a male, the very queer George Cukor. And although I'm not a big Will Ferrell fan, I did enjoy his Xmas movie Elf. Pretty sweet and genuinely funny.
Okay, I will admit I am sucker for Amazing Grace, one of the most beautiful songs ever written, done by none other than:
