Quote of the Day

Today as DD and I were walking out of her brothers' school, that she so desparately wants to attend every day, we were talking about her upcoming birthday. Mind you, she is 2.

We were talking about what kind of cake she wanted and what she wants on the cake... (she is a girly girl - everything pink and princessy.)

Well we get to talking about how she won't be 2 anymore - my way of telling her she is too big to be carried... her way around it.

With her big blue eye and her fluttering eye lashes she stated, "No, I'm going to be 4 momma." End of discussion in her mind..... I was laughing so hard I couldn't argue. I picked her up and gave her a piggy back ride to the car.

Thank goodness John is a chiropractor.

Ok - So I am making fun of both of us! Boo Hoo for me and my hectic schedule that has left me blogless for about a month now. I know - where is the cheese to go with that expensive wine?

Boo Whoo for you as in "oh, yeah - who are you again?" and "Stop whining that I haven't blogged for so long!"

Ok - really I found it endearing that some of you actually e-mailed me asking if I was still on the face of this planet we call Earth.

Quick Topic For the Day: Color

Does anything not look better in color? Some movies are "classic" in black and white... but would have they been better in color? I mean, I don't see directors running to make reels of black and white. What is it about color that makes things look so much better?

Is it that way in society as well? By that I mean, is there not a beauty that is added to the multitude of colors we have in our society. There are the colors of personality as well as the colors of skin. The multitude of personalities is enough to make your head spin - and honestly it is more relevant than skin color. Which is why skin color has very little influence on me.

I cannot, however, say the same thing about teeth, posture, ethics, hairstyle... (this was in no particular order...) What I am trying to say is that no matter what your skin color, society can still discriminate based on the other factors that lead to the overall picture of who or what you really are.

Not prejudice - just personality.

So how do I portray spunk and book knowledge? I'm thinking I should go a little Lady Bird Johnson with a splash of Mimi... any other suggestions? (Grunge isn't working!!)
