Day 13- A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

First of all; I am SO excited about the Rocky Horror episode of Glee that I can hardly stand it. I love Rocky Horror Picture Show. We just watched this week’s Glee episode, and they had a preview for the Rocky Horror episode, and I was squeeing at Ryan. He thinks I’m insane (as usual).

Now, back to our regular programming:

This is difficult for me. I might be “a crier,” but it actually takes quite a bit to really hurt me. I’ve been thinking about it for a week and am still having a hard time thinking of someone (especially someone that I would feel ok writing about on here – meaning either I could write it so it is truly anonymous or they don’t read the blog). In the end, I decided to write to a group of people. They haven’t hurt me in a personal way, but I believe they have and are hurting all of us.

Dear Liars,

Why do you lie? Why do you think that people won’t find out you are lying? People ALWAYS find out. Always. It might not be today or tomorrow, but eventually someone is going to figure out you are lying, and I hope they call you on it. And I hope that you have the decency to admit to it, but considering you lied in the first place that is doubtful.

Lying is one of the things that I will never, ever understand. When the media does it, repeatedly, and no one calls them on it…I just…what kind of society is that building? Not one I’m proud to be a part of, that’s for sure. Would it be so terrible for people to vote/like/not vote/not like someone based on their actual attributes, instead of the crazy exaggerations and lies that they are portrayed with? And personally…if you care about someone, why would you lie to them? And if it’s not a big deal, then why do you need to lie at all? I just don’t get it.

I am not trying to imply that I’ve never lied. Of course I have. And I’m sorry to the people I lied to. I know that sometimes people get caught up in the moment; they are worried about the reaction the truth would cause. But as I said before; the truth always comes out in the end. And if someone finds out not only that you did something they don’t like, but that you also lied about it…well, that’s just adding insult to injury, as they say.

So, liars, knock it off already.

Truthfully yours,

Becky

Random Stuff

-I am almost ashamed to say that I love Glee because so many people actively dislike it. I completely acknowledge and agree that the racial and homosexual stereotypes are pretty bad. But I love music, and I love the characters. When Mercedes threw a rock through Kurt’s windshield and then broke into song…I just loved it. And the teacher with OCD whose name I can’t remember. I love her too. And yet I realize it’s awful. I can’t help it. I’m also ashamed to admit how much tv I watch. So I’m not going to.

-Hypothetically, if you had a pumpkin scone and cherry Laffy Taffy for lunch with milk and cheese, would that count as fruit and dairy? I’m pretty sure pumpkin is a fruit, so I guess I doubled up there. that would be doubling up, right? Hypothetically.

-We are expanding our office, which means there’s been a lot of construction going on all over the place and people moving to new desks and workspaces. They have figured out a way to get myself and the other woman who works next to me some more (much needed) space, but only after she brought it up when we found out they were planning on putting us right back where we were. Thank God she said something. It’s a little crowded back here in the corner. Unfortunately, our desks will stay the same size. Oh well.

-The pregnancy/birth book I’m currently reading is, as my mom would say, a little “hippy dippy.” Even though she lists lots of statistics and stuff to illustrate her ultimate point(s), the fact that she says her children see special colors around their siblings when they are born and that they remember being born (she asks them every year) is a little…out there for my tastes. And it makes it hard for me to take anything else seriously.

-Ryan and I are headed up north for Oktoberfest this weekend. We both have tomorrow off of work, so this is effectively Friday for me. And I am SO HAPPY about that. It should be a fun weekend all around. I will try to get photos posted, but no promises.

-I’m in a much better mood than when I wrote earlier this week. Thank goodness.

Two Things

1) Adam Lambert is THE AWESOME. But I won’t be disappointed no matter who wins because I like them both and I know they will both end up with albums out. But if I had to choose a concert to go to it would totally be Adam’s. Serious fun.

2) Glee. I can’t even talk about it I’m so excited. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Journey music (AWESOME), cool dancing and group numbers, crazy characters…I love it all. I think Emma’s my favorite so far. I’m so sad that I’ll have to wait until this fall to see it. I think Ryan is relieved. He looked a little concerned when I started singing along and cheering. I wish we had Glee Club when I was in high school. Although God knows it wouldn’t have been nearly as good as the ones on the show. But still. I love singing and dancing in groups. I was in The Music Man when they did it down at the Depot a few (5?) years ago. That was fun. Too bad it takes so much extra time to even be in the chorus, or I would do more theater. Because that is TOTALLY THE SAME as the Glee Club on the show. Or probably not.

Oh, and I hear that if you missed Glee and want to check it out you can do so on Fox.com all summer. I’ll be going there at least once, I’m sure. hehehe.
