I LOVE being entertained.
Think about it, we are on this big space ship called Earth stuck in a pattern just spinning as we rotate around the sun watching the moon rotate around us. Growing older each day. Life can become so routine. So many of us spend a large portion of our income on entertainment. One only has to look at the net worth of some of the more well known entertainers to know we invest a lot to be amused and happy. We pay a lot to just divert our attention away from the routine of life if just for a little while. Some take entertaining themselves to the extreme and tempt death, but that's their life.
However, as much as I love being entertained, I've NEVER reached a certain level of fandom for any entertainer where I'm paying hundreds of dollars to see them perform live, or fighting for a chance for them to sign their name on something, or memorizing everything ever published about them or reflecting a more than average liking for their talent.
Honestly, I'm too much of a fan of...well....ME....to spend a lot of energy praising someone else to the maximum or draining my financial resources to make them even more wealthy. But I do enjoy those that provide great products and services at what I feel are reasonable prices for my enjoyment and I will continue to pay to be entertained based on the value I've placed on those products and services.
P.S...Fuck you HBO, I watched Beyonce's 'Lemonade' online....for free....and I'm so happy I didn't pay to see it. I did enjoy the Boobies though. Hahaha! I know, I know...I'm such a guy.
What people have to understand is how much money, on average, they make monthly. Then live within that budget.
If your monthly income is $10K and you hit the lotto for $1M, don't go out trying to live the lifestyle of a millionaire. You won't be able to sustain it.
You're actually a thousandaire that just happens to have a million dollars.
ROFL!! This just made me cackle with laughter! A thousandaire that has a million dollars... I LOVE IT!!! =)
Oh and I also wanted to say.. A million dollars really isn't all that much money these days. :/
1 million dollars....... just drop me off at radio shack for 20 minutes.....lol
I have a few online friends who are in college. One of them just told me that she is one paper away from getting her life back as in free time.
I told her I'm one nap away from...well...taking another one. Hahaha!!!
Can we all just take a moment to pay our respects to the BBQ Ribs I just devoured?
I thank the Spirit Of The Universe for creating such a good tasty creature and for giving me the teeth to rip into its cooked and seasoned flesh.
I thank it's Father & Mother for conceiving such an animal.
I thank the Cow Farmer for his/her service to the food industry.
I thank the Cow for nourishing me and may its spirit be at peace.
I thank the Butcher that slaughtered the cow. His wage was well earned.
I thank the driver that shipped the meat to my local grocery store so that I may make my purchase.
I thank the cook that prepared the BBQ Ribs for me as I did not have to cook them myself.
Last, but not least, I wish to thank all the Vegans and Vegetarians that allowed more meat for me to consume and I honor them for probably eating the same dietary meal as the Cow in which the BBQ Ribs I consumed came from. May they continue to find their grain, soy, corn, hey, alfalfa and clover fulfilling and tasty.
