This and That
. . . I cleaned out my blog links recently, adding a couple, deleting one who hadn't blogged in months and months and also one who was sharing photographs of her uncovered pregnant belly each month. I just didn't need to see that.
. . . I know there are people who go to thrift shops and buy shirts and cut them up to make quilts. Some of these people have a nice sized fabric stash. This is something I do not understand.
. . . There's something about the "Occupy" movement that feels sentimental, like back to the 60s and 70s where many people felt more strongly about social issues than accumulating things. I'm not involved in the Occupy movement, but I admire those who are for taking a stand about something that matters to them.
. . . I'm not really sure who Kim Kardashian is or why her marrying and divorcing is of such interest. But then, I never really knew who Anna Nicole was, and I somehow doubt we've heard the last of her.
. . . In those Cialis commercials with the two bathtubs on the beach, are they filled with sea water? If not, how did they get filled? Sitting side-by-side with my man in separate bathtubs on a beach is something I never dream about.
. . . Now, just because I don't want to make a high-speed strip quilt or cut up a stranger's shirts to make a quilt, that doesn't mean I think you shouldn't be able to do those things. And if you know the full scoop on Kim and the other Kardashians, well, by golly, you know something I don't and more power to you. If you want to post photos on your blog of your ever-expanding bare belly, stretch marks and all, by all means go ahead. It's your blog.
And this is mine.
