The Blonde Experiment

Tom was flicking around the TV channels the other day and he spotted the film "Gentlemen prefer Blondes" on the TV guide channel and being curious-- he had never seen it before, after all-- he switched to it. First thing he saw was Jane Russel--not at all a blonde, in case you didn't know.

Best Prom night ever

Most people remember their prom night as a special night...for various reasons. It may have been the first real grownup party they attended, first time dressing up, first time dating, first time out without their parents or their real “first time”.

I wouldn't know any of that, however. I never got to go to my prom, because my parents wouldn't allow it. No need to go into the whys of that. Tom, on the other hand, did go, although he didn't want to. His mother forced him to go as a right of passage he would regret if he didn't do.

How to deal with a bully, old world style

Back when I was in school, there were bullies. I'm quite certain there were bullies for all times previous —even though I was not alive to witness it. Want to know something else? There will always be bullies, no matter what is done to try to stop it. It is just a fact of life that there will always be those who will try to intimidate and bully the weaker amongst us and they will continue to do so until someone stops them. Every dictator, every king, every power-hungry human, every politician with world domination on the brain has/had been a bully or has the potential to be a one.

Never dating again

Tom and I were watching a movie called “He's just not that into you” and you know what we learned from it? That we NEVER want to date again! That is to say, if the people in that movie are indicative of who is out there to date, then NO WAY we want that kinda crazy in our lives.

Don't know if you've seen that film, but DANG! There may never have been a film so chock full of ridiculous characters; no bigger bunch of whiny, needy, self indulgent, pathetic, clueless, delusional whackos... and mostly female to my utter shame.

A Simple thank you goes a long way

At the risk of someone telling me this is TMI, I wanted to say that I always thank Tommy after a good time and he in turn thanks me.

It's how we roll and how we like it.

Some might believe this to be thoroughly stupid, or ridiculous, but I always thought a simple thank you goes a long way. That is to say, one can never go wrong with stating that you appreciate whatever someone does for you.

Young readers are readers for life...maybe

When I was a young mother, I was intent on starting my baby on a lifelong love of reading which meant that as soon as Alexis—my first child—was born I would sit on my comfy rocking chair and hold her while I read to her. I started with Dr. Suess' ABC book and by the time she was a few months old she could recognize letters and she was able to read before her brother was born 2 years later. I wasn't until much later that I discovered this was NOT the norm.
