Just For Clarification...

The youtube vid I posted the other day, with the Miss Teen USA contestant, was something I saw on Glenn Beck that very night and thought it was hilarious. It's not that I'm making fun of her.... I can only imagine how nervous you have to be in front of a large audience and being given a question out of left field. The thing that struck me as the funniest part is that she originally blames the problem on a "lack of maps". Which strikes me as utterly hilarious.

I was a nervous Bert at my own wedding, being in front of all those people with all those eyes on me and I only had to answer a few easy questions and I knew what they were ahead of time, too. So, I feel for her. She had to have been super nervous!

On a different note: thanks to Lenny's suggestions and some internet research, I've managed to catch most of the fruit flies in my glass of death, I mean, glass of cider vinegar and dishwashing liquid.

I'm in the process of reading "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides and I must say, I am totally engrossed! It's not a difficult read, but it does require some concentration, as the narrator freely skips ahead and behind and up and down the family tree, so you need your wits about you to remember where he is in the story.

I also recently finished "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" which was also a good book. Strange, in a way, but interesting. I'm glad to be able to have more time to devote to my reading lately.

Anyway, I'm back to my book. I'll give more corset details in another post.... LOL.


  1. She was pretty sad....I think she was just babbling and lost her total train of thought. you are a good woman to give her a break. I am STILL reading the same two books. With Steve home all of the time I have no peaceful moments.

  2. I really think she was overwhelmed with information by her people who fed her answers during the weeks before the pageant.

    It sounded like she answered five different questions, all terribly.

    It was funny.

  3. I'm only here for the corset details.

    Which REALLY sounds bad. Heh.
