Thursday Thoughts

1. If you have a photo of your kid crying with Santa and you post it online, I love you, because they make me laugh. A lot.

2. Fucking Trump. I've seen many people state this eloquently and of course I begin with Fucking Trump. I've written this and deleted it 100 times so I will just say supporting the registration of Muslims in this country...people born and raised here as American as you and me who have done nothing wrong...I just can't understand how people are okay with that course of action for their fellow citizens. He has made it okay to be a fascist, racist xenophobe in his bombastic, blowhard fashion. He taps into the fear that lives inside of everyone and exploits the hell out of it. There is PLENTY in life to be afraid of...fear mongers are total assholes for exploiting any of it.
 What it means to be an American is to push for the rights and protection of ALL Americans. Not just the ones that look like us. What it means to be an American is to live in a place where differences are okay and people are free to practice the religion they choose or none at all. I think some people have forgotten that.  If I was a Muslim I'd feel pretty uncomfortable in my own country right now. And I have to think ISIS loves what is going on here. I say fuck that.
3. My unconventional favorite Christmas song:

4. You know what I did this week? Booked Great White Shark Cage Diving in South Africa. Do you know who says that? Crazy people. After I did it, I sent MFD this totally from your wife email: Don't ever say I don't do what you want to do because I completely do not want to do this but it's booked. Can sharks smell fear? Do people crap themselves on this excursion or will I be the first? Is my plaque being made for the Best Wife Hall of Fame dinner? I also got my hepatitis A shot Monday. Next up: typhoid. Forty days out!
5. This'll do. Thanks to Gena for sharing.
6. I died laughing at this all week. Thanks to Joe for sharing.
7. The other day I came home and went back out front to get the mail about 10 minutes later. I saw MFD's car in the driveway and was wondering where he was because he never came inside. Uh, not home dumbass, because we switched cars that day and I drove his.

8. I went to see my newest little girlfriend Amelia at Michelle & Bob's on Monday night, and tonight is Lola night. I love visiting with my little friends, hugging and kissing them, and then give them back to their parents and going home and sitting in my quiet house to read a book. LOL

9. Check out this kick highlight video my brother Sean made. If you don't have time, skip to the last bits. They're my favorite.



10. Ecard of the week:

  1. That hotdog meme made me cry big fat laughter tears. It almost made me forget how incensed I am at Donald Trump and his big fat mouth. #1 - I will send my cousin's photos via email for your enjoyment.

  2. You make me laugh and that's exactly what I need in the mornings...the car tidbit and that you drove his had me dying!! I can't believe you're going swimming with sharks even if it is in a cage!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Love your Christmas list--I'd like to make mine that list as well! The e-card just made me laugh and your commentary on the shark dive (go you for being adventurous!!!) Good luck with the Typhoid shot on Monday. And yes, I agree about Trump. I'm scared and dismayed that he's still even an option instead of a joke (which he is.)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Haha! Number 1, YES. I had 3 of those last year! I'm a terrible mother.
    #2YES, YES, YESSSSSSS
    #4 Sounds amazing. A good friend of mine worked for a semester in South Africa and worked studying sharks. Her photos were incredible as were her stories!

  5. Are you kidding me on the shark thing! Jmj I almost threw up. However , I will just extra light and angel your whole entire trip. I can only hope you will not have your period during the dive. It's like teasing the Sharks!
    Love the hot dog thing and immediately thought lips and assholes from the Great Outdoors! Love the Christmas list. Abhor the Trump thing - fearmongering has caused so much strife. Lights & Angels to this. Have fun with our sweet Lola ! Love. Your. Momma

  6. So many giggles in this.... Couldn't agree more on Trump. He TERRIFIES me. My dad always said he wasn't electable but I don't know. I'm also terrified of how many hate mongers are out there supporting him. He's so despicable. LOL at "where's MFD?" because that's definitely me these days.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I despise Trump, he is such a blowhard. You are a brave woman for agreeing to shark diving. I will take a million dollars and a puppy too, please!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I'm a republican and I'm seriously so fed up with him! There are striking similarities to what he's saying and what happened in WWII with the Jews, and I'm so glad you posted that quote by that pastor. I think that it's actually on the holocaust museum in Boston and I remember it resonated so much with me when I visited.
    Anyways, that's so awesome that you're going to go swimming with sharks! You're way braver than me and probably love your husband more too lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes to #1...and also I think I'll just borrow this Christmas list!

    ReplyDelete
  10. You know, with Trump, I can't. I prefer not even to give him attention. The only reason he's still around and a "viable" candidate is the shock factor. If people stopped caring he'd go away. At least I hope he would. His mindset and kind of thinking is damaging to EVERYONE. (coming from someone who leans a little more right than left!!)

  11. That poem for #2, I love that. So sad that we even have to reference that now to things happening in real time. Makes me sick. Diving with sharks though is a happy opposite to it! I'm sure you wouldn't be the first person (or animal!) to poop when seeing a great white :)

  12. My mom is making Christmas cars of me, age, I dunno, 6? SCREAMING my head off on Santa's lap. I hated Santa and any other sort of creepy costumed holiday figures. It's so good. If she actually makes them in time, I'll mail you one!
    omg I cannot believe you're going in that cage thing. You're crazy. Please come back not eaten.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Fucking Trump. The epiome of what America does NOT stand for.

    Sharks. Yikes, but cool.

    I have a good one of Sean with Santa... gotta find it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sharks? Nope. No thank you. Not ever.

    Slow clap re: Trump. It frightens me that people are buying into his xenophobic, fear mongering. it is EXACTLY what Hitler did. He needs to be stopped and I did see that Paul Ryan spoke out against Trump which makes me mildly optimistic for the sanity and logic of the Republican party.

    Annnnd, that basically sums up my Christmas list, too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. #7, thank you. Head thrown back laughing at that one because that's something I would totally do. I'm thinking if I had someone to do the shark thing with I would do it. In a cage. My friend has twins and she always shares their first Christmas pic. It's not with Santa but they're both crying their eyes out sitting by a typewriter!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yep... I bet Isis thinks Trump is the best thing coming & going in our country right now.

    OH MY GOSH - that shark thing is the COOLEST!!!! ... & a bit terrifying! I cant wait to hear about it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think the crying santa photos are hilarious too haha!

  18. Oh Trump...it's scary...I really hope he does not become the guy in charge because I can't see anything good coming from it for anyone in North America. On a more upbeat note that shark thing is seriously cool. Not so cool that I'd be signing up for it, but cool enough that I can't wait to read about your experience!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really like the sentiment about no one being left to speak for me. I've written and deleted about 50 different posts. i just don't know how to get the words out but it's so true. we need to stand together, not tear eachother apart. Because that's how the bad guys win.
    that kick highlight video is so cool! (i'll admit, I did skip to the end)

    I cannot believe you booked that shark thing. I also can't wait to hear all about it!
    crying santa pics are the best.

    ReplyDelete
  20. LOL at the hot dogs! And how awesome that you'll be shark cave diving, I can't wait to hear all about it and your whole trip - so exciting!

    I'm just continually left speechless by everything you said about Trump and all the other idiots with the same point of view. There are simply no words :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. Best wife award for sure! That's gonna be an adventure right there. Scary though! Fucking Trump is right.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The Trump thing is well said honestly. You could have said way worse, like all the comparisons to Hitler and Voldemort swirling around the internet (that I love and feel are pretty spot on). And yet I have a coworker sitting 10 feet away from me that will talk 10 minutes about all the good he's going to do and I have to hold the vomit inside my mouth. Also, I think the shark thing is awesome. I'll go with MFD in your place if needed - and if I could afford to go to Africa. Basically I'm jealous of your whole trip!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Shark cage diving??? Nopity nope nope. I've done sky diving, because nothing can physically attack me. I'd have to wear some Depends under my wetsuit. Definitely an adventure- have fun!

    P.S. Is that your Christmas card in the banner? Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. OH MY GOSH!!! Can I come with you guys on the shark cage diving?! That is on my ultimate bucket list and cannot wait to do that one day. You will end up loving it- I just know it!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am so jealous that you're going cage diving with sharks!! I was JUST talking about that.

    Trump...I just, I don't understand how people think he's so brilliant and want him to be president. If people think America is a shit show now... I still don't know exactly who I want to vote for but I a, 1000% sure it isn't him.

    ReplyDelete
  26. SHARK DIVING. Please document every single second. I hope it is one of the greatest experiences of your lives!!!!!

    And also, I say this every Thursday...but AMEN SISTER.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have no screaming kid Santa pictures, I could probably come up with one of her standing cross armed with her head in the air refusing to sit on Santa's lap period. Haha

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can't stand Trump period. He's an absolute JOKE. It's not right to register muslims alone... you'd have to register EVERY religion - and that BETTER NOT FUCKING HAPPEN BECAUSE IT'S NONE OF ANYONE'S DAMN BUSINESS UNLESS YOU WANT IT TO BE.
    I watched a show the other day called "When Sharks Attack." I hope you come back with all your limbs... not everyone on the show was that lucky, lololol
    I took Pete's car to Target the other day and when I came out and started looking for MY car there was a brief moment when I thought "Holy shit, someone stole my car." Yeah, cause someone would really steal my piece of shit 2000 Grand Prix. -_- lol
    A video of Sean highlights?! *heart eye emoji*

    ReplyDelete
  29. Omg, yessss! Why is anyone using anything Donald Trump says as a point in an argument? I seriously cannot tell if people are just using him for satire or if he has serious supporters and it scares the crap out of me.

    Good on you for signing up for terrifying shark cage-ing! That sounds horrific and awesome all at the same time, and will make an awesome story. Well, hopefully not that awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Shark cage diving? no no no no no I would get a divorce! Hahaha! I think I want to change my Christmas list to that!!! And I was laughing so hard at the hot dog thing!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Shark Cage Diving, no way!! Just the thought scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Whyyyyyyyyyyyy do hot dog ends look like buttholes?

    I saw your comment on Gwen's post about IG not showing you everything and I just read something about this the other day. Like Facebook, IG now filters what appears in your news feed. When you like people's photos often, I guess they appear more often.

  33. I think of Trump and I want to cry. Truly, this isn't funny anymore—it hasn't been for a long time, but this is enough. The position of POTUS needs to be regarded with a hell of a lot more respect than too many people are regarding it with these days and in this election. As always, Steph, you're right on the money with these comments. Dubious "figure heads" in this country are playing right into the game, and it's enough. Fuck that, indeed.

    Number 8, preach!

  34. I'm still waiting for Ashton to pop out to tell us that this Trump thing is just a giant episode of Punked. I love that "First They Came" poem. It gives me the strength to call people out on the stupid shit they say. Oh goodness. . .a shark cage? You are much braver than me. That's the stuff of my nightmares, but I'm sure that it will be a fantastic experience. That's funny my Christmas Wish List looks similar. haha

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just when I think I can pick up my jaw off the floor, Trump opens his mouth and says something completely racist, fascist, rude, inappropriate and fucked up.

    Heather over at The Spohrs are Multiplying posted pics of her son... This happy go lucky, handsome, and smiley little fella. Her daughter is just over being scared of Santa but him, OMFG hilarious. I'm right there with you crying on the floor laughing. :)
    It's almost the weekenddddddddd!! ;)

  36. When Scott IS home and not away, I'll come home from work and not see his truck and think "Where's the truck?!" and then I remember he's driving it.

    That's an awesome Christmas list.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have airhead moments like the MFD car moment all the time. And I loved that you shared "first they came" poem. I shared that with my one class while student teaching and we got into a very long conversation about what the poem meant to Jews during the holocaust and what it means to Muslims now. Very poignant.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I completely agree with you about Trump. I can't even stand to look at him.
    So excited for you and your trip to Africa! Have fun with the sharks...just don't watch Shark Cage Break-Ins on youtube. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. You are super brave for doing the shark dive! My husband would totally want to do this!

    Fuck Trump.

    I also laugh at the kids crying at Santa but I haven't taken Kyra for the simple fact I don't want her to cry.

    ReplyDelete
  40. HA! Is it bad that I get disappointed when a pic is posted of a kid smiling on Santa's lap?? Bo-ring...bring on the hysteria, please. And yes, Fucking Trump. That's all we can really even say at this point. I lol'ed at the hot dog meme, thank you for that gem.

    ReplyDelete
  41. seriously, fucking trump.

    great whites?! no the fuck thank you. NO. have fun with that.

    ReplyDelete
  42. um, that hot dog joke is so stupid and just made me laugh so hard. hahaha. Also, I too have enjoyed the crying kids with Santa. Ha!
