Thursday Thoughts

I apologize for the spacing in this post. Blogger is being a total douche and I can't fix it. 

1. Apparently MC Hammer pants are back, even though this is not a good photo of them. Seriously, people? Hammer pants? Skidz were much better.


2. When you come home from a trip at 8:30 p.m. on a work night, your shit is strewn everywhere until you can set it to rights. Thank God for spare bedrooms with doors that close.

I thought I lost my flash drive with my entire life's worth of information on it in California. I had 72 panic attacks and tore through the house and all of our luggage looking for it. HARK, it was zipped into my camera case. There was much rejoicing throughout the land, and much backing that shit up on Tuesday. 



3. Where were these awesome colored things when I was in college? All the comforters were solid and the crates were glorified milk crates in drab colors. These kids have an awesome selection of stuff. Also, given the percentage of the population that is extra tall, does everyone really need XL twin beds? It's a racket. The colleges and sheet companies are in bed together. Did you see what I did there?

Found at Bed, Bath & Beyond
4. At the end of last season, I was through with True Blood. Even the very fine forms of Eric Northman and Alcide couldn't keep me...then Christopher Meloni joined the cast, and I thought E + A + C = Ok. Well, that reason is gone. I haven't watched the past two episodes yet. I'm not sure if I'll continue. The cons are large: I HATE TARA, in all forms; the Terry fire monster story is ridiculous; and Pam and Eric's bond is broken. What's left?

5. My boys! I missed my boys. There's nothing better than the pure joy of your dogs when you step into the house after being away for a long time. 



6. I feel like dog dirt. I can't recover from the time changes of the past week, and I have a sore throat. I love traveling, the aftermath not so much. 


7. I think Michael Phelps is a phenomenal athlete and I am completely psyched for him and his new Olympic record of most medals ever. I think his mom is awesome too. But I have a niggling feeling that he's douchey in his personal life. I have nothing to substantiate this feeling. But you...Ryan Lochte...let's be friends. Call me.

8. Way to fucking go, USA lady gymnasts. You made me cry with pride.

9. Goodbye Shane Victorino. I'll miss you. Oh you too, Hunter Pence.

10. I feel like making meatloaf. 


11. Do this (thanks Amber for the pin): 




12: On gays, chicken, and freedom: Chick-fil-A is free to run itself on biblical principles, donate money to anti-gay groups, and state plainly that they are anti-gay marriage. Freedom of speech. Freedom to practice their religion. 


People are complaining that people against Chick-fil-A are violating Dan Cathy's right to free speech. That's not what's happening here. People are using THEIR right to free speech to disagree with Cathy. This entire thing proves that this system works - both sides are exercising their freedom of speech. And both sides are saying government can't keep Chick-fil-A out of cities and off of campuses. 


Chick-fil-A shouldn't be banned from anywhere. Businesses are allowed to donate their money wherever they choose, and consumers are not required to patronize those businesses. So if you don't agree with their support of and donations to anti-gay groups, and if gay rights are important to you, don't eat at Chick-fil-A.  


I am ashamed that I ignored this stance of theirs for so long, so I'm sort of happy that they plainly stated their beliefs. I won't ignore it anymore, and I won't eat there again.


I will never understand why marriage between two consenting adults is anyone's business aside from the people getting married and their god. 


Did me getting married affect your life? No. What effect does someone else getting married have on you? None. Don't give me the business about the institution of marriage or the bible saying it's between a man and a woman. Heteros have crapped all over the institution of marriage with their insane divorce rate and high incidents of domestic abuse. Everyone should be focused on minding their own marriages - that's more worthy of time and energy than casting shadows on the love of others.

13. I finally bit the bullet and bought our airline tickets to FL. We have done awesome things this year - Cape May long weekend with family, California with friends, Strathmere coming up next weekend, Cocoa Beach and cruise in September - next year we need to do less and space it out more. 


14. Ecard of the week, pinned by Jenn G: 



In honor of Adam Duritz's birthday yesterday: I'm alive, I'm alive. But I'm sinking in. If there's anyone at home at your place, darling,why don't you invite me in?

    1. I don't know what to do. I want to show True Blood who's boss and stop watching, but I'm sure come Sunday I'll be caught up on the last two and looking towards the next one.

  4. I could not agree more with you about the "chicken man.". The fact that everyone is permitted to have, and voice, any opinion he or she wishes is one of the many things that makes our country great. The sad part of the whole debate is that there is a portion of the population who look to take the words and opinions of others and somehow turn them in to discrimination and bad behavior. As a gay woman maybe I should get mad, but really the whole episode just somehow makes me sad. I served 12 years in the Army, spent 5 more in government service and now I am a teacher. According to the opinion of some, I was not "fit" to do any of that......

    1. To those that say you weren't fit, I say, "F U." Same thing as people saying women aren't fit for certain things. If we all treated each other as equals, well that would be a marshmallow world. I'd love it.
