American Idol & Guilt

So, there isn't actually a correlation between the two...

First, let me tackle the AI stuff. There is a DJ on the morning show that I listen to. I've never really liked her all that much. She is one of thost ultra-liberal snotty bitches that makes comments on things she knows nothing about. She often says people's names wrong, she hates just about every movie she sees that isn't indie or by Michael Moore, she is the worst interviewer- every time they interview a celebrity I cringe at her questions, and her lack of knowledge about the music industry drives me insane. She is a DJ!!! Shouldn't she have SOME knowledge of this stuff?? Example: In an interview with Adam Levine of Maroon 5, she would not drop the subject of his alleged affair with Jessica Simpson- so much to the cringe inducing point of his manager popping in to say "Can we focus your questions on music only please?" Her co-host then basically took over the entire interview where she, rightfully so, didn't ask another question. I was absolutely embarrassed by her. After the interview, she said it is her JOB to ask those questions. Like she is the National Enquirer or something. No- her job is to conduct an interview with some class and taste. I don't CARE about him and Jessica Simpson- I cared to hear about his new album and any upcoming tours. I also hate when she talks about American Idol. Firstly, I believe it was a week or two ago, when she made a comment about Akon's performance. She called them a BAND. Uh. Akon is a rapper and has done work with both Eminem and Snoop. Don't you think a radio DJ should know that? She made some stupid comment about him slipping in a swear word. If I didn't hear it (or maybe I'm that desensitized to foul language considering my own potty mouth), then I doubt anyone else did. The other thing that bothers me is her love for Sanjaya. Shouldn't a DJ have some knowledge about talent? Sanjaya is NOT talented. He should not win American Idol for just being cute, which, uh, I don't think he is at all. I think he is flamingly gay and could be the next Michael Jackson- and I don't mean that in the talented, I've won a million grammy's way. Sanjaya's performance last night was a JOKE. Granted he is the only thing even remotely exciting about this year's Idol, I do NOT think he should win. If he stays after this week... ugh. I honestly don't know if I can watch this show anymore. This no-talent joke is taking away an opportunity from others that have TRUE talent and star potential. Go away Sanjaya and don't come back.

Now on to the guilt portion of my rant today... For the past 8 or so months, I have been teetering around in the job market. This isn't any secret to my current employer seeing as I have made my ambitions very clear to my boss. I have several amazing prospects on the line. Mostly lateral moves, but much more career oriented positions. I am refusing ANYthing that does not offer advancement opportunities. Why don't I stay within my current company? Well, let's see. The marketing department in which I am most qualified to represent includes some of THE snottiest, cliquey, mean bitches I have ever met in my life. I have already been to high school and dealt with this, WHY would I have any desire to work with these people in my professional career. I don't. I appreciate having solid working relationships, but I would never go out of my way to leave anyone out- that is part of being a team. When you start isolating yourselves from other people, ethics come deeply into play. They then start to decide who they like and don't like- including who gets hired and who doesn't get hired. Which is why I am picking up what's left of my shattered career and moving on. Upon my departure I fully intend to bring this problem to light with sr. management. The guilt part comes with the fact that I greatly respect and admire my boss. He just gave me one of the best performance reviews I have ever received and I am deeply moved by his high opinion of me. While I would love to be his executive assistant forever, my career ambitions are winning out. I know I can be more than this, and I'm not going to stop until I make it to the top.

On the baby front, which I haven't discussed in awhile, I'm still not pregnant. I'm in yet another 2WW and once again think we have another failed month. We are having dinner this Saturday with "Joe's" best friend's family in which we found out that his best friend's sister is now pregnant. Seriously. Can we just go somewhere and do something where we are not bombarded by pregnancy? It's really gotten me down lately and it is taking all of my willpower not to let it get the best of me. As part of my "moving on with my life" deal, I'm hitting happy hour with my girlfriends tomorrow night and have no intention of holding back. I'm so tired of putting my life on hold for what is a monthly failure at this point and just want to have fun and ENJOY everything I already have. "Joe" and I are even scouting out a new lake home for next year's move. As much as I have grown to hate Avril Lavigne- her song "Keep Holding On" really hits the mark with me.
