Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

I don't get it...

I don't get all the hulabaloo over Miss USA and her remarks.

First, did anyone notice the some of the other questions?

How did you get your nickname, Daddy Long Legs?

Such substance!

But I don't get why she can't state her opinion about gay marriage.

I heard it's because she is supposed to represent us... us being America? or women? or ?

Well , when my body, and my friends bodies, and the majority of people I see in America look like this:

Then I will say that Miss USA is a representation of US and shouldn't give her personal opinion about gay marriage.

And on another note, I hate that the media says she hates gays, she simply stated her personal belief about gay marriage. Get a grip, Perez.

She displayed the perfect representation of America - she used freedom of speech and thought.

To See My Mother
It was like witnessing the earth being formed,
to see my mother die, like seeing
the dry lands be separated
from the oceans, and all the mists bear up
on one side, and all the solids
be borne down, on the other, until
the body was all there, all bronze and
petrified redwood opal, and the soul all
gone. If she hadn't looked so exalted, so
beast-exalted and refreshed and suddenly
hopeful, more than hopeful—beyond
hope, relieved—if she had not been suffering so
much, since I had met her, I do not
know how I would have stood it, without
fighting someone, though no one was there
to fight, death was not there except
as her, my task was to hold her tiny
crown in one cupped hand, and her near
birdbone shoulder. Lakes, clouds,
nests. Winds, stems, tongues.
Embryo, zygote, blastocele, atom,
my mother's dying was like an end
of life on earth, some end of water
and moisture salt and sweet, and vapor,
till only that still, ocher moon
shone, in the room, mouth open, no song.

Here's the headline on the website:

But when you click on the story, you find out it was a....

THAT IS SO MISLEADING. A TEACHER is NOT, I repeat NOT a SUNDAY SCHOOL teacher. This makes me so angry. Let's stir up a nation that already doesn't respect or pay for teachers. Let's continue to use subliminal messages to make the public see what cruel, evil devils educators are. Let's keep paying millions and millions to men who can get a ball in a little basket, let's keep showering money on gangsters who rap about beating bitches and cops while thousands upon thousands of teachers are being cut from budgets all across our nation, forcing class sizes to 30 +...

I hate you, Fox News.

And yes, I am aware that a little girl was murdered and that is what I am most angry about. Because really, it all boils down to what we care about most (or rather LEAST) in our nation - children. If we had tougher laws and actually weren't afraid of offending someone's so called civil rights, KNOWN and PROVEN child molesters and killers would be killed within 30 days of committing their crime.
