So now I know there are some crazies out there that actually believe this is the “beginning of the end”, but for me it’s a blog beginning.
I for one am not a believer in these things. Armageddon & Apocalypse, in my humble opinion, will take second to what we ourselves are doing to the beautiful world we live in. Don’t worry I will not harp on how industry & politics will kill us while we count our money in a forest devoid of life, but it’s always in the background.
Most of my posts will likely be in response to articles I have read in the news (or less reputable sources :-P) with probably some rants about things that have irked me. I’ll try not to go out on tangents……….buuuuut I make no promises. Maybe some stuff about pop culture, buty I try to leave that to my husband who has his own blog devoted to pop culture because he is a tv/movie/music buff. I only know what I like not the history’s behind it, sometimes I don’t even know why I like it.
Now on to even more stupidity, check out this example of great parenting.
We can be thankful that the daughter was 19 and not a small child because the dumbass mother could have seriously hurt a smaller child having a tantrum. Thankfully it was only the daughter’s foot that was run over, which I am sure was painful enough in its own right. Glad that the mother is being charged, I am sure that if this resulted in hitting the daughter with her vehicle that there were plenty of other incidents that were maybe never reported. Of course i could be dead wrong, and honestly hope I am, sometimes people just snap I guess.
I love to read, and will try just about anything. I love Kathy Reichs, and am trying her new young adult attempt, Virals. Not sure how much I’m going to enjoy it though, but I’ll plod on until I either get sucked in or decide it’s not worth my time to continue.
I’ve also made a promise to myself that I will try to read some of the classics. I’ve been (VERY SLOWLY) making my way through Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. He is an incredibly gifted writer, making his characters come to life with so much detail. That being said, all that character detail makes for the story being pretty slow to come out, but I did make a promise to myself and those are important ones to keep, if you must keep a promise.
And now to finish off my first entry, a blast from my past. Do you remember slip & slide? Maybe they still make them, I’m not really sure I haven’t visited the toy section in a very long time. I’m watching Billy Madison (also a blast from my past) and one of his graduation parties the kids are playing on a slip & slide. I used to love those things. One of those times I used to literally take a running leap, the red belly afterwards. It was all in the name of fun, and always awesome!!
Thanks for tuning in,
