Things that only marginally matter

In case I haven't mentioned enough times, this is my last week of classes for the semester.  This means that my mind is more occupied with debits, credits, CAPM, and contracts right now than it is with thinking of original blogging topics.  However, I do like to keep the TV on while I study, and I have found that E! is the perfect background noise, particularly because it is so inane and senseless.  I learned some important things tonight (Tuesday night), and I feel the need to share.

Honey Boo Boo:

So, apparently THE Barbara Walters has named the Boo Boo child one of the most fascinating people of 2012.  Am I the only person in America who simply does not understand what the draw is with this family???  They are a straight-up redneck mess.  There is nothing special about their brand of crazy.  I say this with authority, because I'm low income, and I shop at Wal-Mart.  There.  I said it.  I shop at Wal-Mart.  Go to Southern Indiana and shop at a Wal-Mart on Sunday.  You will see rednecks who make that Boo Boo family look classy.

Taylor Swift:

T-Swift is dating that One Direction person.  I say person, because I have a hard time identifying anyone in that tight of skinny jeans as male.  I'm also assuming that she's digging him for the accent.  I mean, think about it... how many marginally attractive guys have you shamelessly flirted with just because they had a hot accent?

...Ammon, I never did that.  That's a lie.  I'll never do it again.  Probably.

The Biebs:

Supposedly, he and Selena are in luuuuuuuurve again.  Since you two are obviously still 12 years old, let me make you aware: grown-ups don't "break up" for a month, just so they can get back together and have more publicity.  They have their stalkers  friends make up horrible rumors, then sell them to tabloid writers as "inside sources".  This is a much less stressful feat to coordinate than the break-up make-up drama you just orchestrated.  Learn the rules of fame already.

The Duchess: 


Technically, you blogland people broke this story for me, but it was all over E! News, and it's pretty faboo.  The Duchess is preggers.  Alyx, I would like to point out that Kate's morning sickness was so bad, she had to go to the hospital.  Let's all thank heavens that yours was not nearly that bad.

What trashy gossip can yo share with me that I've missed?  Obviously, my brain can't handle anything more extensive than all of this right now, so please help distract me from the valuation of securities, and I'll love you for evers.


  1. Taylor Swift is annoying. She has a new bf every other week. Grow up girl. And I really don't understand everyone's fascination with the royals. Maybe I'm just weird.

  2. you have fallen in my eyes! Honey Boo Boo - I have never understood her or how we need to reward her/her family for the ridiculous and frankly unhealthy way they raise her. Shouldn't we be concerned that she can barely manage a sentence? Shouldn't we be concerned that the mom pretty much feeds her straight sugar and soda exclusively? Ugh. The fascination with Honey Boo Boo is all that is wrong with America.

    In other news...I suck at trashy gossip. :) Good luck with your last week of classes - you can do it! Home stretch!!

  3. I heard that Jessica Simpson is pregnant again. Saw it on the cover of a 'zine at CVS the other day. Poor girl. She just lost all her baby weight, and now it's coming back!

    ...I shop at Wal-Mart, too. Shhh...

  4. Honey Boo Boo scares the pants off of me. And her family does too. That's beyond crazy. And total white trash. Sometimes Michael & I watch just so we can feel better about ourselves.

    I'm not sure it's possible for me to care less about who T. Swift is dating, who tbe Beibs is in the sack with, and whether or not the duchess is carrying twins.

    I'm borderline horrified that the duchess' pregnancy ended up on the morning news yesterday. Her kid will never rule America, so why should it be news here? Of course, her kid will probably never rule England either....

  5. ewwww that picture of honey boo-boo and her mom literally made my stomach churn! and taylor swift annoys the hell out of me with her new boyfriend every single second..

  6. Oh Biebs... it was so great getting you through your short-lived breakup. Come back and visit me again anytime. Oh wait... this isn't my diary... haha jk! :)

    Did you watch the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last night? I didn't, but I saw a lot of people's tweets about how he was ogling the models' butts as they walked by. ;)

  7. This is hysterical! I second the WalMart comment. Go to any Walmart in Ohio. Bam. Or Rural King, actually.

    I would date anyone for their accent. Anyone. Maybe. Probably. I love an accent. My husband as a southern one.

  8. I have never seen Honey Boo Boo. From the small clips that I have seen, I am especially glad that I have not seen an episode.

    Oh and Taylor Swift is so freaking annoying. All her songs are about guys that have wronged her. Something must be wrong with her if she has had that much bad luck!

    Anyways... Loved this post!

    XO Lourdes

  9. I am not that much into gossip (because it is only partly fun here in Germany) - but your comments were a lot of fun!


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
