The Voice ~~ Is it Me or are these Singers BORING?

As I’ve stated in the past. I love Prime Time Reality TV. I love rooting for the undiscovered being discovered. I think shows like American Idol, The Voice, Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, etc are great for giving some folks their shot at stardom. We have learned from the past that just because someone is kicked off early, if they have “it” they can still do well. (Jennifer Hudson, Daughtry, Clay Aiken, etc). Lately some of the winners are forgotten as the credits roll and the confetti falls.

And since I don’t vote, I can’t blame America for getting it wrong.

Currently we have American Idol and Voice going at the same time. Sure the old girl (Idol) is getting up there, but I can honestly say, the people who made the top 10 can all sing and for the most part, might have a bad week, but don’t bore me week after week. I wish I could say the same for the Voice singers. I have been watching all season and honestly can’t pick one out of a crowd by name. They just don’t “grab” me. They aren’t making me ticked that they are in the bottom or even kicked off. Sure I like a couple of them (that rocker chick is pretty good – but once again, I don’t know her name yet.

Maybe I’m in the minority. Maybe you don’t think they are as boring as I do. Trust me, I want them to do well. I really do. I want to root for someone but not just because they have some sob story behind them. I don’t mean to be mean but just because you grew up poor, dad died, the car got a flat tire, and the kid next store stole your toys as a kid, doesn’t mean you sing well. (Although, you are perfect for singing many country songs).

And worse, some of them sing well but are still BORING! How do you pull that off? I’ll tell ya, lack of personality. For example, the country girl isn’t the best singer, but at least she has personality and I want to root for her. She makes it fun. Same with the rocker chick.

Ok, I’m done ranting. Sorry, I was watching what I missed the other night and realized we are one more week in and I still am bored. Sniffle sniffle.

At least Biggest Loser is on tonight and I can’t wait to see them walk out! Now that will be exciting.

PS. Hope you liked your bonus post today  😀

Tax Day ~~ Try and Control Your Excitement

Knock Knock…

Who’s there?

The Tax Man

Ah, there’s nothing funny about that??!

Yea, I know…  🙁


Yesterday I discussed how I put off my taxes until the last minute. Typical procrastinator action. And from some of the feedback I got, I wasn’t alone. There are tons of other procrastinators out there. But only a few that procrastinated on taxes till the last day. Although, many did wait until this past weekend.

Is there anything funny about taxes? Not really, it is a necessary evil driven by others.

Supposedly if we stop paying them our schools would collapse, our highways would fall apart, police and firemen would be home sitting on couches eating bon bons.

Some are mad that only 50% of the population pays taxes.

Some are mad that the rich don’t pay enough.

The rich are mad that they worked their ass off for what they made, why should they be punished

Envy is every where. Rich are envious of the poor not paying anything and the poor are envious of the rich that they make so much.

Someone the other day was upset that they are barely making it and owe so much money, meanwhile someone that made the same amount got back a check for almost $5000 while the other one owed $3000. One feeling punished for not having kids and the other being rewarded for having them.

Tax code ~ tax breaks ~ got to love them.

Personally, I’m not taking sides. But I do agree with everyone, taxes suck. And like it our not, they aren’t going away anytime soon. And today I will be bummed since I owe.

But since my blog is about finding humor in the bad in our life. There will be tears of laughter damn it, and not tears of watching my money go to Uncle Sam.


Ok, maybe I can do at least a 2 to 1 ratio. There you go. For each 3 tears, 2 will be from laughing and 1 for thinking about my money keeping the teachers, policemen, & firemen working. And I guess if a fourth one falls, I’ll try and remember that someday it will fix that bumpy road I drive over each day.

Oh, and if you haven’t hit send yet on your Turbo Tax…….You might want to do that….

And if you are filing by mail…..Yea, have fun in those lines
