Hello again. Anyone out there? It cracks me up that I have started this blog. I find it entertaining that so many people write about so many things through blogs, putting anything and everything out for all the world to see. Do bloggers realize . . . Oh. No matter. I’m here to write, so let me get on with it.
Today, I watched Oprah. Oprah did a great job of interviewing Rosie O’Donnell. Actually, Oprah gave Rosie the floor and let her talk about whatever she wanted. I think Oprah has a tendency to throw out a bunch of questions to her guests. And, I think Oprah has a tendency to answer many of the questions she asks, interrupting her guests when they try to speak. Clearly, Oprah is successful, so who am I to talk, eh? Anywho . . .
I think Rosie O’Donnell has some die hard fans, and I believe she has some die hard non-fans. It seems Rosie’s bad press is really bad, and Rosie’s good press is really good. She’s been out of the limelight, so to speak, for the past couple of years. And, this interview gave her a chance to re-introduce herself, to a degree, to the world around her. [This isn’t a very good entry, is it?]
See?! And, this is why I question the world of blogs. Which, if I question it, why participate? No one is holding a gun to my head. But, I like to talk. I like to write. It seems the natural thing to do . . .
I watched Oprah’s interview with Rosie, and I saw myself. Emotionally speaking, I think I have some serious similarities with Rosie. My mother didn’t die when I was a kid. Thankfully, my Mom is still alive and well. God willing, she’ll be around for many more years. I am not gay. (Not that there is anything wrong with being gay.) And, I am not a celebrity. Yet.
But, I do have a problem with anger (rage). And, I do share way too much with people. Rosie’s girlfriend asked her if she had any secrets, and Rosie said she didn’t think she did. She made the comment that she is open about everything – and perhaps that’s a problem. I relate to that 100%. And, I think my openness is a big turn-off for so many people. Oh yeah, the rage might be an issue, too. (*snort*)
I don’t know. I watched Oprah today. And, when the show was over, I felt it was time well spent. I took away a better perspective of myself. I am excited. I like this thing called ‘blog’, and I think I’m going to stick with it. Some posts will definitely be bland (like this one), but some posts will be, what I hope is, time well spent. For now, I say good night. Tomorrow?! Probably, “Hello again. Anyone out there?”
