And a dictionary for every American…

em•pa •thy [em-puh-thee] – noun
1. the intellectual identification with or vicarious experiencing of the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of another.
2. the imaginative ascribing to an object, as a natural object or work of art, feelings or attitudes present in oneself: By means of empathy, a great painting becomes a mirror of the self.

em•pa•thet•ic [em-puh-thet-ik] -adjective
Of, pertaining to, or characterized by empathy: a sensitive, empathetic school counselor.

That’s just a little lesson for all of you losers out there with limited vocabs and no grip on how to properly use a comma. In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, yesterday on The View, Michelle Obama said that her husband was “sweet, empathetic.” The dumbass audience and countless other couch potatoes across America heard, “sweet and pathetic.”

I saw that it was all Michelle could do NOT to roll her eyes. Silly ass Sherri Shepherd is included in those who did not understand “empathetic.” Unsurprisingly.

If you missed it and have about 20 min to kill, watch here:

note to self: do better

Post It

I just looked at my last 4 or 5 posts and noticed that I’ve been typing real Extra! lately. While I will always post random things, I don’t want to do too much celebrity stuff. I mean, there are tons of blogs out there for that. Besides, I’m not that good at it, or at least not as dedicated to it.

I guess I’ve just been tired lately and kind of uninspired to really write anything “interesting” or “deep”.

I’m just saying that I noticed and I’ll try to do better.

I will, however, take suggestion for subjects on which Bourgie should pontificate. You click here enough, I ought to put you to work!

Oh and HOLA to the folks reading my blog all the way in Argentina! Thanks.

“Twitch” (SYTYCD)

I need a HUMONGOUS suitcase right now! I’m going straight to the SYTYCD set to kidnap Twitch (aka Stephen Boss), one of my favorite dancers on one of my fave reality competitions shows – So You Think You Can Dance. Twitch Boss

He seems like a genuinely nice guy. Just fun, polite, humble and sweet. Let me pinch his cheeks! Great dancer too. He should do well on the show because of his likeable personality, the fact that he didn’t make it on last year (coming in behind Hok who was also amazing) and his ability to adapt to dance styles totally out of his comfort zone (hip-hop). 

Boy got abs too. 

Check out Twitch and Kherington doing the Viennese Waltz from Wednesday’s episode:
