Mini Rant

The Bag Lady must lead a fairly sheltered life. That's not to say that she is "innocent", but rather that she chooses to ignore a lot of what passes for entertainment in this increasingly strange world.

She was puttering around the house last night when the Rancher called her to come and see something on TV (what he actually said was "come and see THIS", but it's difficult to convey the shock and disgust in his voice with printed words). She went and stared in open-mouthed amazement watched a performance by a young woman on a popular late-night talk show. Now, the Bag Lady isn't going to name any names, and she doesn't want to sound like a prude (in fact, she has been known to do a few wild and crazy things in her life, but only after a few too many cocktails, and not on national television) but she could not believe what she was seeing.

The only other thing she'll say on the topic is "Honey, you ain't no Lady!"

Oh, that is not fair! Name names. I wanna know which tart you are talking about.

Miz said...

wait.

I was on TV?

Hilary said...

And you're not naming names... because?

Scrumpy said...

You've got to tell us!

(Don't worry, I've been known to be a bit of a prude too.)

JavaChick said...

I'm with everyone else - name names! I'm always asleep by the time late night talk shows come on, I have no idea what's going on out there.

CherylK said...

Ditto what everyone else said (except Miz). Name names, lady.

the Bag Lady said...

Well sheesh, I did drop a pretty broad hint at the end..... ladies

(Miz - I'm shocked! I didn't know you could dance like that!!;D)

The whole performance had me pretty much gaga!!

Okay, you were treated to Lady Gaga. I've never seen her and I've no wish to change that, but I am curious as to what she was doing.

the Bag Lady said...

Cousin, as you well know, I am not a prude, but sheesh! She made Michael Jackson and his crotch-grab look tame. Either that or I was a wee bit cranky last night..... nah, that can't be it!

Give the poor thing a break. At least she remembered her undies and pantyhose. She only forgot her pants..

;)

Charlotte said...

So you didn't go "gaga" for her performance?? ;) I know what you mean. I saw her in concert - and was quite close to the stage - and left feeling like a deer in the headlights. Egads woman. WEAR PANTS. (Her, not you. I'm assuming you are a big fan of the pants.)

the Bag Lady said...

Charlotte - Actually, I AM a big fan of pants! That's almost exclusively all I wear!
I was a little disturbed by her performance. She WAS wearing pants, but had a wardrobe malfunction at the end (seriously. She had to put one of her girls away before she could talk to Jay Leno - the eagle-eyed Rancher noticed THAT!)

Geosomin said...

Ay yes...the "thing" that is Lady Gaga...well...she's the Madonna of the modern time....and one of the tackiest things out there. I feel bad for her.
And my eyes. Ow...the skank. How it burns :)

Melissa said...

No pictures again???

the Bag Lady said...

Geo - I am glad that I'm not the only one who is not all that impressed. I'm sure she has her fans, and I hope they will forgive me for not being as enamoured of here.

Melissa - sorry - I have my standards!! :D

I knew who it was before you even said BL! And I'm amazed at a LOT of things on TV. Last night my hubs watched a show called PAWN STARS in which the crap that pawn shops buy and sell is laid out as entertainment. I'm still scratching my head over that one!

the Bag Lady said...

Lucas - this is why I don't watch television much anymore! Occasionally I'll watch something that seems interesting (we're big on the History Channel) but most of what's on network TV is simply trash! (and, obviously; literally, in the case of PAWN STARS!)

One of the reasons I gave up tv back in August 2000.

Even the Discovery Channel is in on it:

"The lion waits until the zebra has begun his courtship ritual, then moves in to chase while the zebra is distracted."

Even there, nothing on tv but sex and violence. ;)

the Bag Lady said...

messymimi - that cracked me up! It's SO true!! Sex sells..... right?

I'm still trying to get my eyebrows out of my hairline following Adam Lambert's "performance" (porno film) on the music awards Sunday night. I loved him on American Idol and was eagerly awaiting his new album. Will now have to pass on getting it since I can't get the sqwuicky mental images to go away. Too bad he didn't stay down when he fell. He could team up with Lady GagGag...
