It makes me curious as to what their lives are really like. Why this is important. Is it important? Is it just a party? Do some of them try to get on the "worst dressed list" ? Do they have to go because they are promoting a current movie? Why do they get all this "free" stuff when they are so stinkin' rich already? (OK, I know the answer already to that one, but it still bugs me)
It makes me think about my own life and be so very thankful that my life is not theirs. That I have my simple life here and don't have to worry about all that they seem to need to worry about, or not worry about.
I wonder, do they think about God? What do they think? I think about how liberal the majority of them are (only excluding a handful). And how much they push their own agenda for condoms, abortion, Obama and being "green".
I wonder why Angelina Jolie, who I think has a huge heart for some wonderful causes and tries to do what is right and uses her money to help a lot of people, can be so messed up? She shows mercy towards other countries yet, has no mercy for her father. I wonder, how did she lose the weight?
How do they all stay so thin?
Award time brings all these and many other thoughts to my head.
I think the award shows make it clear how SIN is made to look glamorous and beautiful in the world's view.
OK, this got way out of hand...these awards pictured on my post today have nothing to do with SIN or anything bad at all. The first award on the top is called the "Marie Antoinette Award" and is given to bloggers from other bloggers for being "real" or for "bloggers who are real in who they are". This was given to me from Tracy at Pinewood Castle. Thank you Tracy!
This award "The Octamom Award" is well deserved. It is for the blogging mother who has multiple children and is too busy to even post awards given to her and comes with the command to eat a few pieces of chocolate with each step to finally post it! Thank you Jessica!
Now, I must give my opinion of "blog awards" in keeping it "real" in order to deserve the top award. (which is an oxy moron in itself)
I do not like them.
I think we are all real and that is why we blog. At least the blogs I read are all real in what they blog and post. That's why I read them.
I think they make some people feel bad, that "Oh, is my name on the list of 7 picked by this blogger?" feeling. When people are not picked, it can make them feel inferior or less than popular. We all know who the popular blogs are and why we read them.
I feel that if I pick 7 people, 7 of my favorite (I have more than 7 favorites) then many will be left out. (although pretty much everyone has received these awards by now, which shows they mean nothing)
Maybe I was picked to be last for Volleyball too many times in high school! (I was bad, very bad)
Now I hope I have not stepped on anyone's blogging toes, I'm sorry if I have. I just have to say how I feel. I just think it makes our good little blog world a little sticky, if you know what I mean.
