In the news…

Tell me it is so  – I read the other day that they are delaying the switch from analog to digital until June and the first thing I thought was ‘oh crap, I still have to hear those damn commercials that I have been hearing for almost a year”. They were saying how people were not going to be ready for this switch. What the hell have they been doing since a year ago? How can they not be ready, were they just procrastinating. Then I read the switch is back on as scheduled…sweet! Sorry Obama, I know you pushed for the delay but c’mon, let’s get on with it. This is why I stopped watching soap operas, I have the kind of personality that if something drags on and on I just want it to finally stop!

Tell me it isn’t so – Then I read that Angelina Jolie will not be returning as Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. I remember back when I first saw that movie, I knew nothing of the video game based character but I liked Angelina so I watched. I thought she was so great; her character was a strong, smart woman who was also very sexy even when totally clothed; now that is a great role model for a girl.  I don’t recall a part in either of the movies where she was running from the bad guys and then tripped, God I hate when Hollywood does that. Can we have the guy trip just once? Sorry, got off track there. Anyway, I hope her replacement continues on as superbly as Angelina did and refuses to trip if it is in the script.
