Tennis season is upon us! There’s such a long stretch between the Aussie Open in January to the French Open … I’m totally enthralled by Rafa’s march … of course, as always, I was cheering for Andy Roddick who got pushed out … and of course, I always cheer for the muh Aussies; however, Rafa takes precedence … thus, I had not mixed feelings when he whipped Lleyton Hewitt. Rafa seems to really be focused and his play is near perfection … he needs to knock Federer off his little perch again by regaining the French crown. And then there’s Serena! I love watching her play and overcoming the jeers and bad press that’s followed her since her outburst at the US Open last year. Of course, I think she had EVERY right to have her outburst … maybe not the right choice of words, but I felt that the line judge was out of line – pun intended! Anyway, it’s a great way to spend Memorial Day weekend … you’ve got to love all of the holidays that provide three-day weekends! Of course, the world’s greatest sport event is almost here … FIFA World Cup from South Afrika! Woot-woot! I cannot wait! 🙂
Life has been pretty busy as of late. I’m still no better at juggling focused-projects — I can multi-task little projects that require little-to-no thinking, but when I’ve projects that require a certain amount of focus … it’s hard to be focused when things keep getting added to my list. In order to survive, I’ve had to adopt the the ideology of ‘ I did the best I could do ‘ … I don’t like that; however, in order to remain focused and driven, I must just give almost my very best to everything I’m working on. I cannot give more than I’m already given and remain healthy. Speaking of, things are going much better … still have to be extremely careful. Life is just too short to throw it away for no reason — especially selfish reasons thrust upon you by others.
Summer TV is upon us … I’m excited that The Closer and Leverage are both coming back this month (June) on TNT! Oh yeah, Burn Notice is back on this week as well! I’ve been watching RHoNYC and RH0NJ … love both of them – after fencing it for a while, I’ve landed on Jill’s side. Despite how obnoxious she can be – at times – I don’t see her as vindictive at all (of course, I don’t know her in person — so, it might be different) … as for Alex — she’s traded her good sense for ’15-minutes of Housewives Fame’ – she was WRONG to get in the middle of the issues Jill & Bethenney were having — 210% wrong. Period. End of story.
As for Kelly — she can say she didn’t have a nervous breakdown, but she did. I hope she’s in therapy — she needs to work through this so it doesn’t engulf her. As for the ladies from New Jersey … love, love, love Caroline, Dina, Jacqueline and Teresa! And as Jacqueline said … “Enough is enough Beverly, Angela, Danielle, Merrill, Minilli, Maher, Morrelli, Staub!” I’ve nicknamed Danielle … The Staubster. She is the CRAZY in CRAZY. Period. I don’t know why Dina feels like she needs to talk to Crazy … I hope she doesn’t.
Well, my Spurs blew it against the Suns and then the Magic lost just that — their magic — against the Celtics. Now, there’s NOBODY I want to cheer for in the NBA finals … I absolutely DO NOT like the Lakers or the Celtics. That’s a wash for me. At least I have tennis to get me through the summer and then it’ll be COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON … go ‘NOLES & HORNS!
Well, I’ve got things to do … things to grill and people to mingle with … so, that’s it — I’m out! Everyone have a safe and fun weekend!
