There really is no theme for today’s post. This has become a regular thing on the blog lately, hey? And honestly, that’s really only a small glimpse into my head.
Remember those characters? I used to love them as a kid. Little Miss Scatterbrain is the most fitting one for me today. Is there a little Miss Sarcastic? I feel like we’d be buddies on an ordinary day
The first thing on my mind today is the fact that I can’t remember the last time I stayed awake for an entire episode of The Bachelorette. Emily is an incredibly sweet girl, but her soft voice lulls me right into dreamland. I’m pretty sure I fell asleep for the last 5 episodes (at least!) of The Bachelor too. I don’t know what it is. I used to really like it. But now I get some terrific post-dinner naps in on Monday nights.
I still know what’s going on. I manage to see enough of each episode. I’ve put the pieces together, I know my favorites. I will continue to turn it on … I can’t miss out on any more “quinoa” moments. Anyone else watch and catch that last night? I think we all probably said that word wrong when we first saw it. But I still giggled.
Okay. There’s another thing on my mind today. Warning: this is a huuuuuge #firstworldproblem. If you have a double sink in your kitchen, be grateful. I do not. I live in an itty bitty little apartment. With only one kitchen sink and no dishwasher. I work around it, but it’s a really big nuisance. When I
fall asleep in front of the TV after supper have something going on right after dinner and can’t get to the dishes until the next morning, my kitchen turns into the ugliest room in the world. Hate it. I know this is a stupid complaint. But hey, this is my blog. Anyone have any plumber friends who want to give me one of these bad boys for free?
I have a huge girl crush on Emma Stone. I have for a while. I think she’s just the coolest chick out there. How much I admire her grew even more Sunday night after seeing her accept an award at the MTV Movie Awards.
I didn’t watch the whole show. I find Russell Brand’s history (alcoholism/sex addiction/general craziness) fascinating … but he’s incredibly annoying. He was hosting the awards, so I didn’t watch much of it. But I’m glad I caught her speech. Emma won the Trailblazer Award, and here’s some of my favorite parts of her speech. What an incredible role model. (Speech from mtv.com):
“I looked up the actual definition of trailblazer, and it means someone who blazes a trail to be followed by others. And that’s an honor to hear you’re being associated with a concept like that.”
“The only thing I can hope that an award inspires is originality, because the trailblazers I’ve looked up to and been inspired by are people like Gilda Radner and Bill Murray and John Candy and Charlie Chaplin and the Beatles and J.D. Salinger. Lorne Michaels, who reminds me the importance of comedy, and Cameron Crowe, whose work consistently reminds me of why I want to be an actor.”
“Those people are my creative trailblazers, but I’m not following any of their paths, and what’s incredible about them is they help make me want to be more myself because they’re all originals. And I hope that you’ll find your trailblazers.”
“…that you’ll continue to harness your own originality and what makes you unique because I know that when you’re a teenager — sometimes when you’re an adult — what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it’s not.”
LOVE HER. What an important message. That’s a true role model.
Who do you think is a good celebrity role model?
That’s enough scatterbrained stuff for you today. Have any random thoughts floating around today? Here’s your chance … what’s up?!
