There are moments when I just have to shake my own head at myself for being the dumbest person I know. It's like, did I even GO to college?? Is this old age? Or genetic. I feel like I USED to be very smart. And then one day I woke up and was all "what's this stupid facebook thingie?"
This is how I felt the other day when my mom said "can you even believe this casey Anthony trial?"
and I said "really? there's a trial for exposing yourself on the internet? Did he get arrested for the whole twitter thing??"
My mom looked at me dumbfounded. "NO. CASEY Anthony. The woman who murdered her CHILD?!?!"
I hadn't even heard of this. But of course I said "oohhh! yah! Of course. I heard you wrong!"
I just thought that people were calling The Anthony Weiner stuff "Casey Anthony" for some strange reason.
If that had been an exchange with a friend I would have admitted my stupidity. But admit to MY MOM??? that I'm dumber and more out of the loop that HER??
I blame Twitter wars and Hangin' with Friends and my new obsession with walking to audio books. Sure I've lost 40 lbs...but I don't even know who's running for President! I DO know however, that Ashton Kutcher stopped his war with Village Voice over sex trafficking and that Dooce is accused of being a poverty tourist and that the word "shovel" stumps people in hangin' every. single. time.
I really need to branch out to something more mainstream media. Like the NEWS news. And no, not US weekly news. At LEAST People magazine. At least!
