Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. It's never bad and it's never good. I can't really recall many previous Thanksgivings, though I do remember having a good time last year when I lived in California. Now I'm back east in the bitter cold. Today we all drove north to my sister's house. Really, she and her family live in the absolute middle of nowhere.

I never know what to do at a gathering like this. It was very low-key this year and I wasn't in much of a mood to talk. Being surrounded by my wailing niece and nephew sort of takes the holiday spirit right outta me. I really wanted to get tipsy, but as I was sitting in between my parents, i felt a bit uncomfortable so I had to endure a sober Thanksgiving. For some reason, I brought up the Adam Lambert scandal and was really surprised to her my family's take on it! My family has always been fairly liberal and open-minded, but they thought his behavior was wrong.

Now, let me say, I am not fan of American Idol or Adam Lambert. His voice reminds me of nails on a chalkboard and his style is that of a suburban mall goth meets Elvis impersonator. It's weird. BUT, I find it insane that he has met with such backlash because of his performance on AMAs. Was it raunchy? Sure. Was it offensive? No. Am I the only person that recalls Madonna kissing Britney Spears a few years back? That was perfectly fine, but a man kissing another man is WRONG? And what of the crotch in face that people are so up-in-arms about? Has anyone ever seen Lady Gaga perform? She walks around with her ass hanging out and is constantly thrusting her crotch at someone! But all of this is fine, because America is totally cool with gays and obnoxious sexual overtures as long as it comes from women.

So it was surprising to me to hear my family chastise Adam Lambert for being himself. A homosexual entertainer. What he did is what females do on a regular basis. It sickens me to see this double-standard in place in our society and especially the entertainment industry. It makes me think of Kanye West and Chris Brown. Anyone else recall that Chris Brown is a total piece of shit who beat the hell out of his girlfriend not even a year ago? He punched her repeatedly, bit her, and choked her. What about Kanye West? His mother died recently, he drinks a bit too much, and he stupidly interrupted some country singer with a really weird name. Now who, I ask you, WHO, has been blacklisted in the eyes of Hollywood and the general public? Nope. Not Chris Brown, the egotistical woman-beater, but Kanye West, the drunk dummy.

There's a lot to be thankful for, but a LOT that needs to be fixed.

the past few days were just absolute hell. my kitty cat went missing...four days of agony + going to work and being shackled with THE biggest idiot in the world as an assistant...well, i thought i was gonna die. my boyfriend is so sweet and loving (or tries to be. he is bad at emotions) and was there. just as i was resigning myself to the loss of my sweet kitty, what happens? this morning i am greeted by my father holding her up. she reappeared sometime early this morning!! where she was, i have no idea. i am just so happy that my fat little kitty is on the end of my bed snoring again, where she belongs!
