Oh dear. I’m watching Anita Hill’s testimony from 1991. I can’t believe the questions Arlen Spector asked her. Wow. I’m only on the 56th minute of day 1. I’m watching the CSPAN version. I have a long way to go. I haven’t watched Clarence Thomas’ testimony. I should say rewatch. I was very young when all this happened. I was on Anita Hill’s side just because she was a woman. Hey, I said I was young. 😉 Speaking of young, it is strange seeing a young Joe Biden, and a few people have passed.
Anyway, I cried during most of Dr. Ford’s testimony. I didn’t get to watch all of Judge Kavanaugh live. I watched it later on YouTube. I did tear up a little when he got emotional. FWIW. Sigh. Next subject.
Oooh! There’s going to be a psychic fair this weekend! I wanna go so bad. But I have YouTube videos to record. Blah, blah. I didn’t know about it happening until today. A psychic fair is usually a fair with psychics (duh), Reiki practitioners, tarot readers, energy healers, astrologers, etc. ALL the money is being donated to a charity for children in Kenya. These people are volunteering their time. My mentor does psychic fairs for charity. I always thought it sounded cool and now I have an opportunity to go to one. Hmmm.
I’ve always wanted Reiki done. I don’t know much about it, but I know I could use it. But since I have to pay for these services, I would probably get one service. A psychic would be okay because I’ve never seen a psychic. I have never had a tarot reading in person. I’ve had one on the phone and a few by audio and email. I think everything will be $20 for a 15-minute session. I can definitely get a decent tarot reading during that time. I’m not sure about Reiki since I almost know nothing about it. From personal experience, I know it is hard to give a good astrology reading in 15 minutes, so I wouldn’t even bother. Plus I know a little astrology, so I really don’t need it.
I might attempt to drag my mom to the fair. I don’t think she’ll want to pay the $20 because she doesn’t have it. But I know she would love a reading from a psychic or tarot reader. I feel like if I take her, I will end up paying for her. I know it goes to charity, but I don’t have a lot of money. I just paid a bunch of money to get trees trimmed and to a plumber. I’m not done yet. I forgot I have to pay the movers. Pout.
If I go, I’ll have lots of details in a blog post next week. One more thing: I know I often rant about tarot readers not being psychic, but I do believe in psychics. I know they exist. I was in an online video class with a few this spring. So I’m 100% a believer. I just don’t like when people associate tarot readers with being psychic. Psychics don’t NEED tarot cards. We use tarot cards because we aren’t psychic. LOL.
OMG. The Anita Hill testimony. Someone just asked her, “Are you a woman scorned”? WTF? And then he said, “Are you militant?” Okay, I’ll stop listing the questions. Geez. What happened in 1991? And some of these questions are by Democrats! What was in the water? Unbelievable. Or is it really? I could see this happening in 2018. Anything goes these days.
This week I…
Music of the week (my top 8 most listened to): Tori Kelly, Maggie Rose, Nashville Cast, Jason Mraz, Lauren Daigle, Carrie Underwood, Ariana Grande, Pistol Annies
TV of the week: Big Brother, Nashville
I knew Tyler wouldn’t win Big Brother. He should have. I hate when people like Kaycee say they won by their “social game.” It sounds like using people just to win. I know Big Brother is a game. Tyler was robbed!!!1!!! My mom just started watching this year. She is 19 years late. Yes, the show has been on for 20 years, and I’ve watched EVERY summer. It feels good to call someone else late. I’m usually the late one. (See: Anita Hill comments).
Movie of the week: none
Podcasts of the week: The Rachel Maddow Show, Online Marketing Made Easy, So You Wanna be a Witch, The Bill Simmons Podcast, Serial, All In with Chris Hayes, The Lively Show, True Crime Garage,
I know it seems like I listen to a lot of podcasts. But I “listen” to most of them as I fall asleep. Or sometimes I will wake up at 4AM and know I won’t go back to sleep, and then I will really listen to the podcast.
Books of the week: I finished reading Unnecessary Roughness: Inside the Trial and Final Days of Aaron Hernandez by Jose Baez I’m not the biggest Jose Baez fan. However, I’m so glad he wrote this book. This is the 3rd book I’ve read on Hernandez plus I watched all of his first trail. This book made me feel like I finally got to know him. I feel so bad for his fiance and daughter. I guess I have to say I feel sad for the victims (even though I strongly believe Aaron is innocent in one of the cases). Yes, I feel for them too, but I didn’t know of them.
Now reading –
- Interview With the Vampire by Anne Rice Nope, I’ve never read this book. Yes, I’m extremely late. Haven’t seen the movie either. There is a movie, right? I LOVE VAMPIRES. Sorry, for the outburst.
Plans for the weekend: Maybe going to the psychic fair? I can only hope. I have no idea whether I’m going as of right now. I’m not working at my day job this weekend. I am doing a bunch of tarot stuff. I’m recording 12 YouTube videos. Sounds fun, right? That will be time-consuming. I’m going grocery shopping. I will enjoy the park while the weather is nice and while I’m still living very close to the park.
I’m going now. I will probably go to sleep watching the Clarence Thomas Hearing. Have a fun weekend. Thanks so much for reading! 🙂
