There have been lots of things in the news lately that have caught my attention. First of all, I was really excited about Miss North Carolina winning the Miss USA pageant! I watched some of it and I thought she was really cute.
But I was also very impressed with Miss California standing up for her beliefs when she was asked by Perez Hilton what her stance on gay marriage was.
Some people believe that her answer that marriage should be between a man and a woman cost her the crown (she was first runner up). But I am just glad that there are people out there who are willing to stand up for what they believe is right, no matter what the cost. I thought Miss California was very respectful and I think tolerance should run both ways. Pageant contestants should not feel pressured to be politically correct. They should be able to give an honest answer.
And I have had that song by Susan Boyle stuck in my head all week. I've probably heard it a thousand times this week on every news show out there. haha But one of the things everyone has been saying is that she needs a makeover. The flip side of that is that part of her beauty and charm is the way she looks naturally. I think she is so sweet and while I think she is beautiful in her own way, I think she would look really great if she plucked her eyebrows just a little. (Only if she wants to, though!) What do you think about that?
And, this doesn't have anything to do with the news, but has anyone out there seen the book Eat This, Not That?
I have talked to several people about it recently and now I want to get it. It seems to have really good ideas for people on the go (like me) who want to make the healthiest choices possible. If you have read it, did you like it??
Well, time for me to get going and get some things done. Have a great night!
