Shep color explosion

I'll love you long time, Shepard Smith.

This will sound cheesy and geeky, but I'm actually very thankful that someone like Shepard Smith was born, became interested in journalism, and got hired by FOX News.  He's really the only news peep I deem worth my allotted TV News viewing time these days.  I do catch bits of others too.  Wednesday was a fabulous example of why I'm still a fan, going on 5 years now.  Dude had the balls to go against a lot of FOX News viewers and put them in their place for their hate and freaky-ness.  He also had the balls to defend the DHS reports that the right wing made a huge fuss over, blowing it all out of proportion, like it was some attack on every right winger and veteran.  Even back when that first came out, Shep was reasonable about it, while the rest of the channel appeared to me to be freaking out and feeding the paranoia.

Here are three videos for you to check out from his show Studio B on Wednesday.

I have to say that I've met a lot of FOX News viewers on message boards and a few in person that sound just like that nutty e-mailer of his.  I would love to find a FOX News fan board that isn't flooded by right wing creeps... or left wing trolls, for that matter (but that usually isn't the issue so much, from what I've noticed).  Basically, they (in general as a group) think in black and white.  If you don't agree with them on something, they call you a troll, a Liberal (intended as insult from them), among other things, like they also call me a sinner, immoral, homo, freak, baby killer, etc.  There has been nastier stuff but I can't remember the specific names I've been called.  Fun stuff.  I don't take it personally.  It makes me laugh, to be honest, because it's so off base.  I reside in grey, not black and white.  They are so biased they don't recognize their own shit stinks, especially when they are hypocritical... which is prevalent.  You know, left is always wrong, right is always correct.  Barf-tacular.

I have to also say that there are quite a few awesome people on these boards too that I've become friends with on social networking sites.  I can't stay on these boards for too long.  I don't visit every day.  Even I get tired of talking about gays, abortion, and Obama.  I swear to you those people obsess over gays more than gays do.  It's funny!

I had to check them out today for some chill time.

Alright, off to bed soon.  First gotta watch The Daily Show and Colbert Report.  Wasn't the first day of Colbert in Iraq the most awesome episode of Colbert EVER?!?!  Couldn't have been better!!


A little sample

Gah, still not asleep... I know. Just dancing and singing in my seat to The Beatles. I'm sure that creates a great visual for you.

Remember I mentioned that photoshoot my best friend Stacy and I had at her house. I shall share a small sample. We took hundreds. I know some people who have known me are probably like, "Whoa, all of these pictures... of someone that used to hate herself!" Well, I got over myself, LOL. I just don't feel as ugly all the time. Turned the negativity into some positive. I'm sure I couldn't have done it without all of the encouragment I've gotten from friends about my looks.

Here are several photos. Scroll through. Click to enlarge.
Credit goes to Stacy for taking awesome photos. I took a bunch of her too, but those are hers to share with peeps.

Aren't we too cute? Hehe.

Strawberry blonde flavored hair? Not really.

Peace out, homey.

Me rockin' the black nail polish with inspiration from Adam Lambert. Hahaha... seriously. Thanks to Stacy's sister with the nail polish.

Hawaiian Princess Leia. Does the hula dance with light sabers, don't cha know?

Please please, come closer.... too close! A little too close! There. (Yes, i did just quote Disney's Aladdin)

Friends forever. True friends never really leave your heart.

Sanity never really has been our thing.

I'm wearing Stacy's clothes. She had me in skirts and dresses the whole time :o Have I ever mentioned that corsets are on of the hottest pieces of clothing on this planet??

Isn't the way it fades to black cool?


Okay, seriously going to sleep now.
