Enough already

I haven’t been able to check twitter for news updates or watch the morning news shows (even my favorite) with out being ambushed with that shot of the hospital door in London. Instead of ranting and raving over how aggravated I am that this is getting so much attention compared to serious issues facing our country – can you say economy – I won’t because news is a business and I get it, not only that, but I’m a part of it. Plus, at least it’s taking away from the race fighting / hatred our country has experienced with the George Zimmerman verdict.

It’s not the news I blame. It’s our celebrity obsessed culture. I decided years ago to remove myself from it. I got rid of tv, don’t even scan the trash celebrity magazines and wouldn’t think of watching one of those celebrity gossip tv shows. Sounds lame but to me it’s putting my foot down and saying, my simple life is beautiful, REAL, and I will not trash my brain.

So, I mean this in the kindest of ways – Get a life!! Really! Why would you sit around and obsess over the royal baby? How silly. Read a book or 2 or 3. In an attempt to have a peaceful sleep I’ve started listening to audiobooks at bedtime. They count and have been so much fun. Learn something – go for a walk. Do something authentic!

Hey, when I was younger I was obsessed with Henry the eighth and all his wives. Instead of making the royal baby the most shared story on cnn.com why not take the opportunity to learn about the monarchy that shaped England and why it’s no longer a part of decision making. Or maybe I’m just jealous. Maybe I should have gone to St. Andrews.
