A New Punishment

Maricopa County has found a new way to discourage crime in their area: forcing their inmates to go vegetarian. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/sheriff-joe-arpaio-institutes-cost-saving–vegetarian-meals-for-inmates-220538735.html I have a bunch of different reactions to this. My first one is – good for them! Good for the county for making such an out-of-the-box decision. How many other counties have been so forward …

I’m Torn

I have to admit. I’m torn on this one: http://www.mail.com/news/politics/2353818-cherokee-girl-transferred-to-adoptive-parents.html#.7518-stage-hero1-2 The article tells the tale of a little girl who is loved so much that two families fought for her (not a new story). The twist is that a tribal nation put in their two cents (hooray for the father for taking whatever steps he …

I’m SO Ashamed!

Today, I saw a link on Facebook which I followed, the title of it piquing my morbid curiosity. Now, I’m just disgusted. http://publicshaming.tumblr.com/post/61388585374/americans-call-first-indian-american-miss-america For those who don’t click on the link – I’ll give you the short version.

Who Decides?

Okay. I’m taking issue again with society making decisions with which I don’t agree. Before, it was bikini baristas. People were in an uproar because women were selling coffee in their bikinis. **GASP!!** I mean, really! They wash cars in their bikinis, play volleyball in their bikinis and roller blade in their bikinis – generally …

Flight 93

So, we’re all thinking about 9/11 today, feeling our own personal feelings about the day. It was the first incident of my life where I can say, “I remember where I was when I heard the news.” I had never experienced anything like that before. The loss of life, the shock, the decrease of my …

Fighting Himself

So my ex husband is up to his shenanigans again. Apparently, this time he has decided to fight himself. He wants something. It is something to which I agreed months ago. This past weekend, I was acting upon our agreement. But he’s not happy. For some reason, in his mind, I am not abiding by …

The Ugly Truth

So, I went out with Snow Man last Wednesday. I had a wonderful time. I’m so mad about it! Why? Because he lives 2 hours away. And I hate driving. And I hate long distance relationship. And, there are other reasons why he would not be my first choice. When we arrived, I looked over …

Close-minded Zealots!

This morning, I was cruising through Facebook. I have a wide variety of friends from different countries, races, sexual orientation, and religions. Yes, even I have a friend or two who are zealots. Usually, one of us ends up unfriending the other because of a post we find offensive. Today, I was pretty close to …

A Fun Date – Darnit!

So, last night I had my first date with Snow Man. I really didn’t want to connect with him. There are all sorts of reasons why I didn’t want to enjoy myself – distance being one of them. He lives 2 hours away from me. Who needs that?! But, we clicked. It was the best …
