Fed Up

Have y'all seen this trailer for the upcoming movie about the food industry?  I'm guessing it won't make it to my corner of the North Pole as not much does.  But on the off chance I can track it down, I think it looks really interesting.  I love films like this.

The Entire Week Is A Palindrome

I've mentioned on here a few times over the years that I have a thing for palindromes.  It's weird, I know.  But I dig them.

I was in kindergarten or first grade when it all started.  I saw it on an episode of 3-2-1 Contact while waiting in my good therapist's office {shout out to everyone else in the I had a crappy childhood club} and it just stuck.  {You caught the part where I noted it was the good one, right?  Because I had a horrible one too.  Scarred for life!}  There was a song of course that went along with this numerical lesson that I bet the producers never imagined would stick in some kid's head for a solid 30 years...but at this point I really don't remember it.  It is however, still my favorite word in both sound and meaning.  {Oh dear Lord, please tell me someone else out there has an equally quirky favorite!}

So here I am, 30 years later, cruising Facebook last night, and one of my sorority sisters posted this...

This entire week is a palindrome!  Hot diggity dog...I love it!

For anyone who missed said episode of 3-2-1 Contact or that math lesson, a palindrome is the same forwards and backwards.  Hannah, dad, 56765....they are the same word or number if you read them from the right or left.  

What's your favorite word?  Is it less nerdy than mine?  Are you, too, a fan of palindromes and secretly excited that it's palindrome week?

Dear Lindsay Lohan: Go Back To Rehab


Dear Lindsay Lohan,

I am honestly about out of things to say to you.  I mean, are you even remotely embarrassed by your behavior?  You are a bad excuse machine!  You have the worst attitude.  You're entitled and self-righteous and rude.  You have complete disregard for the time and finances of others.  And you just lie at every corner.

I have watched this show for over a month now thinking you would finally have a come to Jesus moment where you would see how insane you are and would shape up.  I really thought, albeit foolishly, that you would give the world insight into how motivated and talented and responsible you are after your latest rehab stint.  But you are honestly worse each week.  At this point the best thing I can say about the show is that it ends next week!  Can I get an Amen?!

What on earth did Momma #Oprah see in you?!

Here are my highlights...

* You had a two hour contract with the casino, for which you were to be paid $100.000.  The contract started at 10 PM and ended at 12 AM.  You didn't get to that red carpet, where your "work" started, until 11:30 PM.  But you think you fulfilled your contract and were on time?  Buy a damn watch!

* Your mother is writing a book.  And buy writing, I mean she has a ghost writer.  Who clearly is only doing this for the money because she is clearly annoyed with your family.  {Aren't we all?!}  Why does your mother need a ghost writer?  Does she not know how to type?

* The Elle Indonesia bit was priceless.  Do you have even an ounce of remorse for the money you cost the magazine because you were days late?  Does that weigh on you at all?  When I am 15 minutes late, I feel guilty.  You made this team, who flew two days across the globe to get to NYC, move the shoot back two days after sitting there waiting for you all day.  Then you were late on the re-shoot day, forcing non-daylight shots and adding a third day onto the agenda.  Then you refused to give the 20 minute interview.  Because YOU were so ill-behaved by being so stinkin' late over and over.

You were insanely disrespectful when you criticized the photographer at the end by saying he needed to learn not to rely on natural light.  If you had shown up on time, it never would have been an issue.  What he should learn is to never work with your unreliable fanny again!

But the most amazing scene came at the end when you made yourself the martyr for not getting credit as a co-stylist.  Your styling skillz were only needed because the clothes had to go back after you were days late to the gig.

{The second most amazing scene was when the director called you a bitch in Indonesian.  I laughed out loud on that one.  #highfive}

* So in the casino I Fulfilled My Contract bit you were all it's my first time around alcohol and I'm nervous.  But when it comes to hanging with friends, you're like it's totally fine to have friends drink in my house or at the clubs and it doesn't tempt me at all.  You claim that wanting NY nightlife leads you down a horrible path.  Then you say you can party and not drink.

You lie.  You make excuses.  You need rehab.  Like a real rehab.  Or boot camp.

* The scene where you filmed yourself crying...that was fake right?  It was weird and didn't make sense.  I bet the producers were like OMG fine whatever film yourself I hate this job and want to kill Momma Oprah for buying into your big bag of BS.

* If you love dancing, go to a dance class.  Put on music and dance around your giant apartment.  Dance down the street.  Go on Dancing with the Stars.  Don't go to an effing nightclub.  #dumb

* You were livid at Matt for not physically accosting that paparazzi guy.  And while that pap was certainly annoying, he wasn't doing anything wrong.  But it was Matt's job to steal his camera and tackle him?  And then you were livid at the driver for not running a red light.

So in review, you were yelling at people to break laws because you were having a hissy fit.  And said hissy fit could have been prevented if...say it with were on time for once!

Seriously...please tell me you are watching yourself and feel mortified by your behaviors!

The self-filmed, fake crying while gross smoking scene.

Lindsay, I do sincerely hope you get help.  Real, fluff-free help.  I hope you figure out who you are and realize the value in being responsible both for yourself and in the great big world.  Actual value comes into your life when you do things, even if very small, on your own, with integrity and without excuses.  Value that money can't buy and assistants can't source.  You don't seem dumb to me.  You just chose to act dumb and irresponsible.  You could just as easily chose to act smart and responsible.  And sugar, being smart is light years cooler than being an idiot!  #smartgirlsrule

One more week, y'all, and we can put this frustrating TV chapter to bed!

Georgia Squirrels Have A New(er) Home

For my fellow Greeks {or old home geeks...I'm both by the way}, my chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta at UGA just underwent a huge construction project.  The old "new part" of the house was removed and a "new, new part" was added.  I'm dying to get back to see it- hopefully next year!  They've done an incredible job with the whole thing.  Not only does the house look amazing, but the House Association has done a fantastic job of keeping alum in the loop during every step of the multi-year process.

I'm so proud to be an Alpha Gam!  Way to go Georgia girls!!
