Cupid is Not Yet Senile

blake2.jpg I read this complete and total nonsense on TV Tattle yesterday. It was someone’s–some moron’s–explanation for why Sanjaya was still around. “He’s a nonthreatening teenage boy whom young girls and older women (by far the two biggest voting blocs the show has) find cute. No more, no less.”

Oh for the love of God. We age and can no longer tell hot from not? I am put in the same sexual category as a 12-year-old?? I’m scared and looking for non-threatening?? That said, I laughed when Sanjaya came out last night. It’s like he’s thinking, I don’t know why I’m still here, nothing I do seems to matter, I’m going to do this crazy thing with my hair. Maybe I will stand on my head instead of sing! Not cute. Creepy. Although last night he was less creepy, and a more palatable weird. The only way my age comes into it is, I wish the best for him. If weird is what he wants to be I hope he finds a way to make it work for him. (That said, I am not voting for him so don’t blame me.) But Blake, my Blake, I loved him last night. Randy and Simon just didn’t get it, maybe it’s a chick thing, but he is smooth and exciting.

On a completely different note, I was thinking about the fires down at the Trade Center and the fact that they were burning for months. In my memory they burned until, like February, but that can’t be right, right?? That’s what I remember, but it can’t possibly be right.
