NPR






Ha ha








I love NPR and I don't care who knows it. I listen all the time and I guess I get most of my news from them. Not ashamed at all.

Her name was Lola she was a showgirl...











Well the feathers aren't yellow (maybe next time)







Maybe I am trying to channel Steven Tyler. They are just fun and a nice change.

Googly eyes addiction!

I have a serious problem. I now want to glue googly eyes on everything I own. Ipod, phone, work space, water bottle. You get the picture.

It is getting out of control.



At least Fiona got some better looking eyes.


























Can't find a fitting quote for this post.




I can always find a lyric or quote so this is frustrating. The quote on the left is the best I can do.








And I am frustrated. Not with the person it involves but with myself. I hold on too long, I can't be left behind. I think it is because I have lost people in the past who mattered so much now I can't let anyone go.




Even. when. I. should.




I should have let them drift from my life years ago but I hang on. I should have known even when things were good that they were never the person I thought they were. They let me down and made me feel bad about myself so many times and I just took it. It is my fault that we kept in contact and finally I now realize that the friendship is dead. There is nothing left to say. I won't go into details or say anything mean. I could and I want to but it won't help anything.




It makes me sad letting go.




I miss the early times when we first met when we laughed and actually had a good time but now too much history and lameness has occurred to ever get it back. I think part of the reason I hang on is I just want one more good time with this person. Just a few hours. That is all I need to remind me why I cared so much in the first place. I now know this can't ever happen.



Kind of funny I have/need to have contact with this person every once in a while yet I have someone else who I will most likely never talk to again that meant a lot to me. A LOT. I am fine with that, made peace with it. I just have to let this other one off the hook and get on with my life.

The end is here/near?

If you're    ready for a zombie apocalypse, then you're ready for any emergency.    emergency.cdc.gov

Maybe the end is really coming. I hope so. I can't wait to kill some zombies. Bring it on.

The CDC can't be wrong.

Eye of Newt




Not the biggest fan of Newt Gingrich but it did amuse me that he has come up with a new political tactic.






The Prebuttal



In an interview with fox news he said:




"I want to make sure every House Republican is protected from some kind of dishonest Democratic ad. So let me say on the record, any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood. Because I have said publicly those words were inaccurate and unfortunate and I’m prepared to stand up… When I make a mistake — and I’m going to on occasion — I want to share with the American people “that was a mistake” because that way we can have an honest conversation. "



He is preemptively shutting down any future argument. Way to be a hard ass Newt.

Meet Bianca


Named after James Bond's side kick in the Octopussy film. She is a fun co-worker but lately she is sad because someone ate/threw away/stole her baby. She is consoling herself with crochet baked goods.






Sad. What has this world come to?

I'm Not Fat I'm Big Boned



I heart Cartman!













The state of Georgia has a new anti childhood obesity campaign. Our First Lady Michelle Obama has her "Let's Move" campaign. I am fine with encouraging healthy behavior but I feel these billboards and commercials are damning to the poor fat kids. Fat kids already have it rough. I don't know the statistics but I am pretty sure overweight kids are picked on and discriminated against the most. More picked on than children of different ethnic and religious backgrounds, or financial status's. While it is not socially acceptable to make fun of handicapped people, or people of different races or backgrounds, it is perfectly fine to make fun of overweight people. I feel that this campaign to "Eliminate Childhood Obesity" will just fuel the contempt people have for the obese. I know that obesity is a problem for children and adults but I don't think the children need to be singled out and picked on for it.





"To declare we're going to eliminate childhood obesity — that's actually a very stigmatizing thing to say. The overweight child hears that and thinks, `They wish I wasn't here.'"- Paul Ernsberger (Ph.D & co-author of The Obesity Myth)

I was a fat kid and I am a fat adult. I try to solve this issue and give up easily taking comfort in things like this:


Oh my bloody goodness that cupcake looks so good.





If Ms. Killjoy Obama has her way cupcakes with extra frosting will be banned.





O.K. back to the topic at hand. As an overweight child I was lucky I managed to avoid teasing a lot of the time. I still got my fair share but I used humor to deflect it and make friends. I didn't get picked on as bad as some others do. I also managed to learn to avoid certain people who did pick on me. But I don't think I was bullied much.












Heathers was my favorite movie when I was in Jr High and High School. I wanted to be Veronica, Winona Ryders cool character, but sadly I related more to Martha Dumptruck who tried kill her self by walking into traffic. Keep in mind this movie was a comedy.

Now I am all for teaching good eating habits and encouraging exercise to kids but... As a child I remember my grandmother encouraging me to diet and eat less and to my eight year old brain it didn't make sense. I just couldn't comprehend the concept of calories and fat and it making me fat. (I have always struggled with math) When I got older it made sense but I still would give in to pizza and other bad foods all the time for comfort. I think the education needs to go the parents. If there are no chips and cookies in the house then the kid can't eat them so much.

Check out B





I like the Beyonce video, I guess I just don't like the billboards with obese kids on them looking forlorn and I don't like "Eliminate Childhood Obesity" I think it is damaging and would have made me feel like crap when I was a kid. P.E. and the Presidents Physical Fitness challenge made me feel bad enough. I could never do a pull up no matter how hard I try. I worry that kids who are overweight will feel worse than they already do.

They should teach parents and kids about nutrition and encourage physical activities to get the kids in the country healthier but they should also teach acceptance.



That is all. Now where are my cheesy poofs?
