Susan Boyle, Giant Cheetos and Men In Lingerie

By the gods... Susan Boyle got a makeover...

I took a brief break from writing solely about men in lingerie and other such related issues recently, much to the dismay of at least one reader who requested that I return you to your normal program. Now whilst I am pretty sure that nobody is tied to their chairs being made to read these articles (the last one escaped a couple of months ago when I was pondering seamed stockings over fishnets), I thought I would respond. Also because I like seeing Susan, Cheetos and Lingerie in the same sentence. It makes me happy on the inside.

Why the recent change of pace? Well, I felt like it. It switches things up and keeps my brain from going stale. Also, I like Susan Boyle. I couldn't watch her entire first performance without crying. When something moves me and so many others like that, I reckon it is probably worth a mention.

In other Susan Boyle news, I am sad she got a make over. I thought perhaps we might have finally learned our lessons about what really matters about a person, instead we're watching what is looking sadly like another 15 minutes of fame coming and going. Having said that, even in a new dress (or pants) and with auburn hair, Susan is still Susan. So, I don't know, maybe it is reverse shallowness to say that she shouldn't get a makeover. If she chose to show up in a clown suit with a python around her neck, it should still only be her talent that matters.

I thought Swine Flu was worth a mention. Some say it's the new SARS, which makes it like fashion, like lingerie, but utterly deadly.

As for the Cheetos, damnit, they're GIANT. Also I got to make remarks about people playing with balls, which was immature and fun. Also I got to connect with other hubbers who usually give my hubs the proverbial wide berth, so that was nice.

So I apologize to those who felt betrayed by a series of topical articles. (The Tom Cruise one was really just a way to get you all to suffer with me. Sure, I could have changed the channel, and you could have clicked away from the page, but if you didn't, we're both to blame.) However I haven't forgotten the men in lingerie.

In the future, if you're not interested by the title of a hub, feel free to not click on the link and perhaps read one of the other 250+ articles I have written on the topic of men in lingerie. Yeah. That's right. Hundreds of the things, and I bet you haven't read all of them, have you? Hmm? No. I thought not. No pudding until you finish your dinner.

I'm not interested in giant cheetos, or Tom Cruise... But in your intro you talk about "anything shiny enough to catch her attention". Men in lingerie while an interesting topic, is only one thing. I would be deeply disappointed if that was all you wrote about.

Even though I don't have all the same interests as you, I would keep checking up on you if only the occaisional article interested me.

I've written enough, but please keep writing about the shiny, whatever it is. That is why you are an inspiration to me.

For me im glad if susan makes a make over besides it add more to her confidence and she's not just cooking at home but facing a lot of people. I like her more now. Wink*

Ok Hope, Im sorry.

I had that coming, however, in my defense, I think you took me a little too critically. Which is understandable. You write about things that for a long time made me feel like less of a person, just because I chose something different to wear. Very few females understand this, my girlfriend luckally is one very understanding woman. You are another. Reading your blog is like christmas for me. I look forward to all your articles, but the 4 or so in a row that, while very well written and entertaining to read, just werent what I'd come to expect from you, and what I do expect from google news, so it was like getting something you didnt want for christmas :)

I love your blog, and I know I have the freedom to not click on anything I dont want to, I also have the freedom to tell you about it :) Just as you have the freedom to ignore whatever drivel comes out of my keyboard.

Anyhow, not at all critical of you, and im sorry if what I said made you feel like that.

Much Love.

It's okay Spin, I am sure you were not the only one thinking it. You just happened to be the only one with the balls to say it ;)

It's a snack made of puffed corn with a cheese powder coating.

Thank you Hope - I don't think it is available this side of the pond although we do have many other similar sounding chemical snacks..
