1) This one’s a confession of sorts because since the Adam Lambert debacle I have not really watched any reality contestant type t.v. And by “really” I mean never seen a full episode. One can’t avoid bits and pieces. Therefore, I am surprised to find myself sitting here on pins and needles so hopeful that Zendaya will win Dancing with the Stars. The first time I watched an episode of DWTS was last night. It happened because my mom told me about this biracial girl Zendaya who is just fantastic and a judge favorite, but may need extra votes because her parents were shown on camera and that could cost her the support of… well… “certain” viewers. The only sad thing about that statement is that the concern is not invalid. So I turned the show on and lo and behold… I think that if I had more time in my life I would become slightly obsessed with this girl because I just think she is spectacular and her parents are so adoring and even if it cost her votes I’m so glad that that reality is being televised! In such a mainstream way. So awesome! Makes me happy and brings me peace! I kinda want to be her when I was 16.
2) As in second confession…. In addition to Mental Health Awareness Month, May is also National Hamburger month. Apparently I’m not one to discriminate because in the last 2 weeks I have had 3 cheeseburgers. That’s 1/4 of my yearly burger intake! In the last 2 weeks! Clearly I am celebrating National Burger Month as well as MHAM and just thought you should be aware. If burgers were alive they would probably be depressed because there is really no hope for a burger. It will be eaten. That would be beyond sad.
I discovered Zendaya when my daughter started watching “Shake It Up” every day on Netflix.
