I have a laptop or iPad on my lap when watching TV. And usually a dog or two napping across my legs.
Last night during The Voice performance finale -- and by the way, amazing awesome fantastic duet on The Beatles' Yesterday, Adam and Tony -- I was on twitter. This is not unusual, ask my husband.
And for my own sanity and perspective, it's a good thing I peruse The Globe and Mail and Entertainment Weekly online, cuz in addition to all the Christina Aguilera bashing (okay I did some of that, she's such a bitch), here's the headlines a la twitter:
2- Stephen Colbert Is Very Afraid of Teens Drunk on Purell
3- Bishop Won't Let Group Publicly Honor Gay Student
4- Obama's Vague Gay Marriage Stance Under Scrutiny
5- Some of you people retweet the dumbest shit
6- The Winnipeg Jets are going to the Western Conference Final for the first time in franchise history! (uh, how did a sports one get in here....?)
7- Christina, Don't judge. Must we revisit your National Anthem situation, falling at the Grammys, etc etc?....
8- Jon Stewart Has Some Questions for France
9- Who's reading Eugenides' "The Marriage Plot" and dying from every leaf and page of beauty therein? Me, that's who.
10- Hillary Clinton Wants To See A Female U.S. President, Says It Won't Be Her
11- Selena Gomez & Ashley Benson talk breaking out of the 'good girl hold' (uh, problemo here, I don't know who Ashley Benson is...)
12- Dinosaur farts caused global warming in the Jurassic period
13- Lawsuit Alleges John Travolta's Penis Is 'Roughly Eight Inches' With 'Unkempt' Pubes (uh, thanks, I am gonna go vomit now....)
So yes this is a peek at who and what I follow on twitter.... pop culture, gay stuff, random sarcastic people... that's all perfectly normal, right?
Okay even if it isn't a normal view of the world -- and hell, what is normal anyway --- this last one from comedian Andy Borowitz makes it all worthwhile:
