Wednesday Rants

I've got a few things to rant about today.  I was going to do it on Twitter but I think I have too much to say for 140 characters.

First, let's talk about the Beyonce lip-synching thing.  Y'all know she lip-synched the National Anthem at the Inauguration on Monday, right?  I find it interesting how quickly everyone was to knock Ashlee Simpson on her buns when she lip-synched on SNL and basically ruined her career but because Beyonce is BEYONCE!!! she gets away with it and people are actually forgiving her?  WTF?  Um, Kelly Clarkson and James Taylor both sang at the Inauguration too and neither one of them lip-synched. 

Moving on.  I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again, I am a huge tennis fan.  HUGE!!!  I've been trying my best to follow the Australian Open which is really hard since it is on in the middle of the night.  I was a little shocked the other day when Dave texted me and asked me if I heard Sloane Stephens had beaten Serena Williams.  Supposedly, Serena Williams hurt her back and then had a hitch in her serve, blah, blah, blah.  Yet, she didn't seem to be too hurt when she was pounding her racket on the ground until it broke.  Sloan Stephens has said that she idolized Serena Williams growing up and even had a poster of her on her bedroom wall.  Nice example you're setting there, Serena.  You're really a great role model.

Finally, I just finished reading "The Perks of Being a Wallflower".  Um, I didn't get it.  I didn't get it at all. 

What are you ranting about today?

Don't get me started in Serena! She is a great player but her attitude during the matches when things aren't going her way is the worst. I lost my respect for her when she went off on that official last year.

If by "today" you mean "whenever you read this", then I'm ranting that we will have had three 2 hour delays this week. I know, I know. I SHOULD be glad to have the extra time with my kids. I SHOULD be glad C had the extra time to study for her test today. I SHOULD be blah blah blah. When am I ever going to get anything done when they're home all the time? Is it spring yet? Go to school!
