Random Thoughts

This probably won't be very long. i realized a few days ago that i have had one of my sponsored kids since December of 2005. it hadn't really occurred to me because i get the pictures they send every year but i look and go aww and then don't track it on a day to day basis. Mom and i adopted a few more about two years ago but the oldest one will be aging out of the program in a few more years. i'm not sure if we'll find another kid to sponsor at that stage but right now that is making me kind of sad too. only one of the others is about his age, were was about his age, when we started sponsoring him. The two girls we won't have as long either cause they were older when started sponsoring them. If you can afford it and are interested there are great programs out there. We sponsor through Children International and they are great about allowing communication and all manner of things.

Now i'm going to turn back to the stupid tv that i've been watching because AT&T suddenly added the We network to our lineup and the horror that is bridezillas is on.

What i am is what i am

This post is random so don't be terribly surprised by it. i realized something today. i am unusual in a lot of respects. The things i like, the people i admire, the quirks that are all mine wouldn't make sense to anyone else if they were all placed out there for the world to observe. i love Prince (his old symbol name thing is one of my four tattoos)but i also can rock out to everything from Queen to Jill Scott to Pink to Eminem to Christina to T.I. to George Michael to Luther. my zune has nearly 6000 songs on it and i swear you would think i had musical ADD if you looked through it. And i'm perfectly okay with that. i loved old Anne Rice but hate the Twilight books. Give me an E. Lynn novel but please keep anything Tyler Perry touches away from me. i think i secretly lust to be yelled at by Gordon Ramsey and short of the massive windfall being on Oprah could bring i do believe i'd run if she (or Jerry Springer) ever called my house.

i'm amazed by people's reactions to the famous folks that suck up so much media attention. There is rarely any middle ground, either love them or hate them. Most of the ones people love i find bland and the ones they tend to hate i practically adore. When people got cranky with Christina for finding more than a genie to rub her bottle i giggled and applauded her for taking control of her life and her image. Can't bump too much of the genie phase but she's become one of my favs since the Stripped album. When the world got up in arms about Angelina and Brad and how dare they do that to Jen, i revisited what i knew of the uber couple before the split. Brad had actually just gotten cute to me so i had be keeping tabs on his interviews and what kept coming up was how much the man wanted babies and how much Jen was focused on her career based on her stellar movie choices during that time period lol. Now i'm not saying she should have dropped everything and popped out kids but it became more apparent that was a want and when people can't get what they want from their relationship it becomes problematic to keep it together. Was i super surprised that Brad and Angelina hooked up? Well yeah. She was in happy new mommy phase and seemed to be ok without a stupid male attachment in her life. Watching them in Mr. & Mrs. Smith you could see them connecting and as i mentioned before bad relationship plus sexy strong mother oriented woman equals bad news for current partner. Call her what you want, blame her if you need to and harangue him for leaving the wonderful wife he had but Brad and Angelina seem happy and the kids seem to be doing well and that's all that matters. Yeah for her for having a good family and good relationship and doing good in the world elsewhere.

i think i can relate to both of them for different reasons and while i really may not ever make a bit of sense to anyone else i am enjoying being comfy in my own skin again. i can periodically doubt myself because i don't fit any one mold but who really wants to blend in that much. oh well just wanted to share, i'm gonna finish watching Dateline now lol.

Happy Fourth Everyone

Hope that you are having a good holiday and that at least some of you get the day off tomorrow. i do so yeah for me. And when i go back to work on Tuesday i get to leave early so yeah again for me. Things are interesting around here lately. The only plants that survived the heat are mom's tomatoes but i'll try again next year. Speaking of mom, she went to visit the grandkids (hers that is lol) and it wasn't a total disaster which is great. She actually even pulled out the camera to take pictures of them with her instead of running from the camera like normal.

i got an anniversary book from my sorority which made me remember why i worked so hard to get into it in the first place. so next sorority year--which only tangentially coincide with real years lol--i think i'll go back and work it out. this last year i wanted a break from foolishness and i can't promise there still won't be drama but i should at least give it a shot.

other than that not a lot going on. my stomach is more under control with new meds. well more of the old meds really so if that keeps working i'll cancel my appointment with the gastro and hope for the best. back to cartoon watching ladies and gents even though according to the stats no one is coming by anyway lol.
