Robert will be Happy


I'm boycotting Dancing with the Stars this season, after Monday nights choice of music and the young kid trying to act sexy and the dominatrix/trannie outfits. I guess I"ve lost my sense of humor, but I DO NOT like the song "I kissed a girl" and it's wildy innapropriate for a show that sells itself as family entertainment. I guess the funny thing is that Lance Bass danced to it and he's not attracted to girls, so it was supposed to be tongue in cheek.

That song is hideous, I was listenting to a regular radio station instead of a cd one evening and it came on and I found myself singing along with it, I still can hear the chorus and it appals me! Seriously- and then my friend who lives in Blackfoot IDAHO, the potato capital of the world, tells me she passed the high school and saw two girls making out- this is in podunk Idaho--- I'm thinking that the media that makes this all mainstream is helping to encourage children- YES CHILDREN- to make lifestyle choices they are not equipped to make and will be very hard to come back from.

Stepping off my soapbox-

I'll be out of touch for awhile, we/I are potty training with Joely. So far I'm getting trained on her physical cues and although she had only one success she has had her accidents in the bathroom, so I think she'll be good to go pretty quickly, but it takes CONSTANT VIGILENCE, so I won't be able to e-mail, blog or basically use the phone for a couple of weeks, If you need me I'll be sitting on the side of the bathtub, cheering on the cutest little Mullens of them all.

I changed the music to reflect Joely's taste. I also added a personal favorite, "the rainbow connection" Recently I fell in love with it again because it was sung on the Office in pig latin. But it's been a personal favorite for years. Here is a funny memory- I always associate it now with a very very young 12 year old Chris Mason. I can still picture his angelic little face and his proud mom! He Sang it at a Talent Show in I think 1985?? He was adorable up there with all his confidence. I wonder, does he still sing? Does he still know the song by heart? Does he remember the Talent show? Also why do I only remember his performance and not any other?

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one!! I feel exactly the same way. I hate that song and have been surprised at how mainstream it is. It is irritatingly catchy too! Too bad she couldn't have sung about something less offensive - I would have loved it.
Good luck with Joely!

Ok, again I dissent...I like the song. It's got a catchy tune! I guess it's cuz I'm from the Land O' Liberals. I also love Zac Brown's Chicken Fried song....have I redeemed myself?

I remember buying you paper and stickers for Miss Alice's potty training escapades...did you ever use them?

I hear you. I had the same thoughts on the show this past week -- but since I don't have little ones here while the show is on, I will probably be weak and watch it anyhow. But I agree with you 100%.

Hope the potty-training goes well -- for some kiddoes, it's so easy. Hope Joely is one of them.

I have not had a chance to watch it this year. I catch glimpses of it.
I do hate that song, but I am starting to hate all pop music.

I'm with you on the song. When it comes on the radio, I make the kids change it. Natalie made her own version of it "I kissed a boy". I still don't let her sing it. As for the show, I'll keep watching because I love the big football player (Warren), and I like Brooke Burke.
Good Luck with the "Potty"!! That will take a lot of your time:)

I actually emailed the Today show when they announced a few months ago that Katie Perry would be their Friday morning concert gig... told them I was very disappointed and would not be tuning in. Seriously... are you kidding me?

Chris Mason had, and I'm sure, still has an awesome voice. I remember him singing "Rainbow Conn.." and I remember them all singing the army, navy, air force, marine fight songs, I loved it. Good memories
