Ok so here I am at work, listening to the TV. Its a relatively slow news day so CNN has turned to the media for its news. The newscaster was reporting on the ‘fight’ between Lady Gaga and Weird Al because of the parody he want to do “perform this way”. the conversation switched to the convtroversy with Lady Gaga and Madonna and how she called the situation the ‘R’ word.
I’m sorry…the ‘R’ word?
what the heck is that? after like ten minutes of searching (mind you all i got was ‘Lady Gaga says the ‘R’ word’) i finally figured out that the ‘r’ word= retarded.
ok, so i am all for equality and not bullying, and people not calling other people names. But this is ABSOLUTELY ridiculous! Yes, i understand that ‘retard’ and ‘retarded’ are not words that people should use to describe things that they cant believe are happening or they think are stupid. But the fact that a newscaster cant use the word ‘retarded’ as a frame of reference is 100% insane.
ok so its 1am and the first days of passover just ended about 4hrs ago. i had a lot of writing that had to get done and i wasnt able to do work until tonight so now i have a 7pg paper that was due earlier today and then a 3rd draft that was due yesterday that i still havent done yet.
i have this film paper that i had to write about the theme of movie from a list provided. i actually have no idea how to write it, like there is some mental block in my brain that in not letting me figure out how to write it.
