1. Eating almost an entire package of iced oatmeal cookies totally negates the 3x a week Curve visits so if you’re going to do one, really, don’t do the other. Knowing how addictive IOCs are to me, you’d think I’d bag the Curves workout but you’d be wrong! I tossed what was left of the cookies in the trash and then cleaned out the cat box on top of it as extra protection. Addictions are a bad, bad thing, yo. Or as the late Rick James (bitch!) laments:
“Iced Oatmeal cookies are a helluva drug”, I mean, uh, “Cocaine is a helluva drug”.
2. Staying home not doing a lot isn’t as much fun as I fantasized it would be. I am grateful for the experience, though. I think it’s time to find something to do but keep my focus on getting my healing practice up and running.
3. One of my guilty pleasures is
making Duty watch(ing) “Wife Swap” every Monday. The families they choose are soooo extreme. Of the many things that annoy me are either the husband or the wife seems to view their spouse as their personal servant. I don’t get this. If I do nice things for my husband like doing laundry or cooking, it’s not because he expects me to do them nor do I expect that of him. We are both adults, both able to take care of ourselves. Yes, I trim his eyebrows but that’s because I like to do it (don’t ask, mmmmkay?) but he doesn’t ask me to clip his nails like the dude on last night’s episode. WTF?
Below is a snippet from Mrs. Nail Clipping’s online manual:
A wife must make her husband feel masculine. When women do men’s jobs, men feel threatened, home life gets disrupted, and marriages are ruined. I would never do anything to undermine my husband’s masculinity, including working outside the home. Some professions are especially inappropriate for women. We believe that women should never be police officers or fire fighters. Women need to be protected, not protect.
I mean, puhlease. I suggest you go and read some of it for a good laugh. *
4. I still don’t get the Evolution vs. Creationism argument. Yes, being a Libra, I am all about the art of compromise but why does it have to be ONE way? Why not just present them as two theories – pick the one that makes sense to you.
I view religion the same way. To my mind, there are many, many paths to God. One is not “righter” than another. It’s about what makes sense to you. People can get their panties all in a wad about this religious belief or that one and I really don’t get that either. What one person believes is between them and God. No one has the right to judge what works for another. As long as you’re not hurting another person, knock your damn self out, yanno? Duty said that someone who is liberal (ie: moi) can understand that others may have differing beliefs and be okay with that while others who are conservative in belief feel that their way is the ONLY way and want others to believe that too. ::BOGGLE::
(oooh, I feel a rant coming on. Should I save it for another day, mayhaps?)
I will end that comment with this quote by good old Thomas Jefferson: “It does me no harm that my neighbor worships 20 gods, or no God.” and to that I say AMEN.
*DISCLAIMER: While this is not the lifestyle I would choose, I am down with others doing that if that’s what makes them happy. Doesn’t mean I can’t snark about it, though.
