The Blog Formerly known as Ali's View

All I could think about today was "The View" and how Star Jones looks as if she has practiced her TV pose a million times so that she can show off her straight hair. And have you noticed that she doesn't seem to smile as much anymore? I'm all for people losing weight, but it doesn't mean that you have to stop smiling. She looks like she is plastered in this one pose permanently. I know what you are thinking, for someone who hates "The View," you sure do know a lot about it. And all I can say in defense is that it is on the TV at the gym while I exercise.

Anyway, back to the point of all this. Basically I was tossing and turning all night in a panic of being affiliated with that show, and I decided it just couldn't be done. So I have gone and changed the name of my blog. I think it is for the best. Thank you all for your support through this tough time (look at me writing as though there were actually people reading my blog--I'm so funny). You know what this means though don't you? There will be no more inside joke at the end of my posts. Ok, ok, you talked me into a probationary period. I'll leave the joke out for a while and you let me know if you want it to come back. It's in your hands now, I invite you to exercise your power as a reader to influence this blog.

So here it all is, the monumental beginning of my Blog--this is history in the making folks--enjoy, and take time to enjoy Ali's Vie--D'OH sorry, old habits die hard. I must think of some catch phrase to end my posts...

Here We Go!

Alright, my first post, and it will be short because it is late here and I have kids to wake up to.

So Welcome to "Ali's View," I am already feeling regret for the name I have chosen because it reminds me of "The View" that lame-o TV morning show with all the women (not that I have anything against women) that I really don't like. Most of the reason that I hate that show stems from the stupid thing they say at the end of each episode: "blah blah blah... and take time to enjoy the View." as if we are all thinking that is so clever. Ok, so here's an idea, I'm going to say something similar at the end of each of my posts as an inside joke that only you who are with me at the beginning will understand to be sarcastic and everyone else will think that it is some sort of copy wannabe of "The View" and only we will know the real reason that I say it.

Ok, that has gone on far too long. I'm starting to realize that bloggers have way too much power....

Well, I must be off--enjoy your day and take time to enjoy Ali's View (I'm not sure how long this joke will last)
