So here’s another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
It’s strange what makes the news nowadays. It seems we hear more and more celebrity drama reported right up there with the European debt crisis, the war in Afghanistan and the Republican primaries. On a recent newscast I watched, Mitt Romney’s win in New Hampshire was followed by an in-depth story on Katy Perry’s divorce and the reaction it has gotten from her very Christian parents. Was this newscast for real? Do people really care? I guess they do or this type of reporting wouldn’t exist. Is it that there is so much going on in the world to depress people that any chance to show someone fall down who seems to “have it all” makes the masses a little happier? Case in point, the birth this week of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s baby girl, Blue Ivy. Can you imagine how you would feel if you got your contractions down to a few minutes apart, you rush to the hospital, you deliver your child and at the same time you are creating an international scandal. Here are some headlines across New York City newspapers this week:
“See The Room Where Beyoncé Gave Birth”
“Beyoncé Gives Birth On Saturday”
“Beyoncé And Jay-Z Welcome Blue Ivy”
“Name Blue IVy Centers On Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s Infatuation With The Number 4″
“What Kind Of Name Is Beyoncé’s Baby Blue Ivy”

“NYC Hospital Under Scrutiny After Beyoncé Birth”
“Hospital Investigating Beyoncé Birth Allegations”
“NYC Mayor Weighs In On Beyoncé Birth”
“New Mother – I Couldn’t Breast Feed My New Baby Because Of Beyoncé Security”
Enough already. Just let them enjoy the birth of their daughter. Yes, I know that people say they make a lot of money and sign up for this type of scrutiny, but really, does this mean intense scrutiny even in the most private of life events like the birth of a child. I just don’t agree with that theory. So here’s my headline:
“Beyoncé Gives Birth – Let’s Dance”
We made it through another week. Let’s celebrate with “Countdown” by Beyoncé. Go on, you deserve it. Get up and dance (just don’t let any paparazzi take your picture). Don’t even let me see you on the cover of the National Enquirer.
I love her! Great pick.
Hi Katherine. Love her too. Have a great weekend. Come back soon.
Spousal unit and I were just talking about you. She’s planning another visit – watch out! Concerning your commentary on entertainment reporting, speaking strictly for myself, I’m even more tired of hearing about Mitt Romney than about Katy Perry. There are thousandsupon thousands of outlets for news now, including hundreds of TV channels – they have to find something to talk about.
Hi Don. Great point about all of the news outlets these days. Regarding your spousal unit’s upcoming visit….tell her we moved. 🙂 Come back and visit soon.
Do you have any idea of how thrilled I would be if I was on the cover of National Enquirer? Don’t know why I would be on it. That would be my lifetime surprise. Have a great and restfull weekend. Love from Iowa
Hi Carolkin. It would have to be something scandalous to make the cover. Just make sure it is good. Come back soon.
