It's been forever since I've been on, and I can't stay on long now, but I was on TWOP today and a bunch of people were on the I Love Lucy forum basically insulting it, and have been since yesterday, you know, on the 60th anniversary of the show (and the 100th birthday of Lucy herself). I guess I'm just really annoyed, because I still love this show despite any flaws. It's still hilarious to me as well as touching, and granted it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but that doesn't mean you have to pick it apart on the anniversary of its airing. Seriously, respect it. People are calling the characters "horrible" because they're acting like several people would in the 50's (apparently some people don't understand that many shows don't age with us).

I don't know, I guess I was just a bit crushed to see something I love so dearly and something that has been a huge part of my life just get picked and picked and picked on a day when it should've been shown respect.

In other news: have a new job as a housekeeper at a nursing home. Kind of really hate it cause it's exhausting and several of the patients are extremely cranky (which I understand why, but they're incredibly rude). But either way, it's some cash. Heading off to school in 2 1/2 weeks. Still nervous, but actually excited. I've known who my roommate is for a couple of weeks, which helps lower the stress as well. My sister has moved back home and is making everyone miserable. You know, the norm.

Basically my summer has been packed. And yet it's the hating of Lucy that has me annoyed enough to say screw my schedule, I wanna write a journal entry that basically tells all of the Lucy haters to fuck off, and to go watch some dumb reality show. I'm not asking you to change your views: just to have respect for those who do actually like the show on the anniversary of it's airing.

Did I mention I worked a long shift today and am super tired so I'm probably grumpier than I should be? Could have something to do with it. ;)

I do hope everyone is doing well. Sorry you've been greeted with such a sour entry from me.

hey, sometimes the sour entries are the ones we really NEED to take the time to write, and the seemingly meaningless things are the ones that push us over the edge.

I rememember I Love Lucy and while I kind of rolled my eyes at some of the antics, as a teen, it always made me giggle. It was touching, and warm, and just that deliberate bit over the top that made it what it was. There will always be people to pick at anything that garners any bit of fame and recognition. Always. I just remind myself that having to try to make something smaller just shows how small they are, take a deep breath, and try to ignore them. Some people are just determined to prove they're not worth the ulcer. Kind of hard to remember when they're ripping on something near and dear, though...

Glad you know who your roommate is, and can be excited about going away to school! =)
