How Some Christians are Just Messed Up.

So I read this today. My head spun in so many different directions. They are going to get divorced, but stay together and continue to have children (if God wills this). There are so many things wrong here. For one, would they not be breaking a few "biblical laws" or two doing this? Lying?  Living in sin? Having sex outside marriage? Unwed mother? 

Now their minds might just be on some greater good path, but honestly, what are they teaching their children? Our marriage was unimportant because a government said it was? Or so they think thats what the new law would mean. They are teaching their children how to be hypocrites - the bible says to love & accept everyone, but not those who want to get married, nope, we can't love them. They don't deserve love. Pretty unchristianlike if you ask me. 

When stories/subjects like this come up, I like to ask one question and it usually gives me my answer.

If two men/women were walking down a street and came upon Jesus. Yes, Jesus. Lets pretend he came back just at that moment. The two men/women were walking hand in hand and so much in love. What would Jesus do? Would he point at them, tell them how evil they are, shame them? Would he throw stones at them and scream at how disgusting and wrong they are?

Not the Jesus I know. 

He would accept them, love them and reach out his arms and hug them. 

Thats what we all should do. Let them marry, let them live, let them have children. 

Oh wait... children. How dare we allow a child to have 2 mothers and no father, what kind of life would that be? Lets make them grow up like so many others, with only 1 mother and a weekend father. Yeah, let do that, because that is so much better than 2 loving PARENTS.

Maybe, just maybe, if more Christians would act like Jesus would, we would live in a more loving world instead of this judgmental, mean, offensive place we call home. 


Requests are harder to ask for...

Had someone email me awhile back to do this design... I thought it was the cutest saying! Apparently so did a lot of people :)

Need it? Want it? Yep, it can be yours.

I Can't Believe How Fat You Are!

Not something you would say to someone, is it? Ok, maybe a dog maybe. A chunky dog. But a human? No, you would never say it. But think about this for a second... of all the things you wouldn't say to a fat person, why would you say basically the same thing to a skinny person?

I have good genes. And one hell of a metabolism. I am lucky, I know that. I eat at least... and I mean, at least... 2 king size candy bars everyday. I munch on junk all day long.  I drink soda and rarely drink water. Somehow all my blood work is normal and I'm healthy. Am I bragging? No. What I am saying is... I can do these things, so I do them. I don't do it to flaunt it, I do it because I don't know any different. I've always been able to. I don't know how to watch calories or fat grams.

But being skinny sucks. The comments suck. After 40some years of hearing the same stuff over and over again, it really sucks.

Things I hear that you would never say to a fat person:

Oh my god, how can you eat that candy bar?
You are what jeans size? That makes me sick.
If I ate all that, I'd be twice your size!

.....those things you would never say to a fat person, would you? Why is is ok to say to someone who is skinny? Did you ever stop and wonder if that skinny person isn't trying to gain weight?  It's difficult to gain weight if your body doesn't want to. Yeah, I know, you can eat what I eat and gain 20lbs, I get that. But I can't.

I know people say it out of jealousy or that they wish they could be skinny, but think about it next time you make a comment to a skinny person.... it doesn't make the skinny person feel good, it makes them feel guilty and self conscious.

When You Wish Upon A Star

Since finding and bringing this blog back to life, I've been doing some reading of what I posted years ago... came across this post. Besides the fact that I spelled it wrong and it now irritating as hell to me, it's amazing how that wish came true.

Ok, not really. Saki didn't magically turn into another breed, but this happened....

I finally got my Shepherd. My Knucklehead. Shortly after that blog post, actually. Brought him home when he was a wee little puppy... he'll be 4 this August. What a trip that has been! Ever known a claustrophobic, highest fear anxiety dog known to man? That's my Knuckles. Smarter than any dog I've even known, but his shadow will scare the crap out of him.

I'm Still in Shock that Sunday Stealing is still around.....

Would You Rather Meme, part one

I guess memes are still alive and strong! Found my favorite one!!!! So here's to the game again... I'm in!

1. Would you rather go into the past and meet your ancestors or go into the future and meet your great-great grandchildren?  Past. Simple answer. There's a certain great-great grandmother that rumor has it was an indian, but my research shows nothing. Either they lied in the census records or the rumors are false. But how can my dad's memory of an old blind indian woman in a rocking chair be false? I'd meet her... and find out where she comes from.

2. Would you rather have more time or more money? Time. More time to ride.

3. Would you rather have a rewind button or a pause button on your life? Rewind. Go back to when my girls were little. Damn, how much I wish I could do that. Just let me do it again... and this time I wouldn't let time go so fast.

4. Would you rather be able to talk with the animals or speak all foreign languages? Duh. Talk with the animals. Who do you think is writting this?

5. Would you rather win the lottery or live twice as long? Live... thats what it's all about.

6. Would you feel worse if no one showed up to your wedding or to your funeral? Pretty sure I'll be dead at my funeral, so how the hell would I know if nobody showed up?

7. Would you rather be without internet for a week, or without your phone? Without my phone. The internet I can bug people on my time...

8. Would you rather meet George Washington, or the current President? George. I'd eat the cherries.

9. Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? I can't hear my daughter's photography or hear my other daughters drawings. No brainer.

10. Would you rather work more hours per day, but fewer days or work fewer hours per day, but more days? If I'm going to be at work, might as well make a day of it.

11. Would you rather listen to music from the 70’s or music from today? Is this a trick question?

12. Would you rather become someone else or just stay you? If I can't be Mel Gibson's girlfriend, then I might as well stick with me.

13. Would you rather be Batman or Spiderman? I hate spiders... and bats. Can I be Snow White?

14. Would you rather be stuck on a broken ski lift or in a broken elevator? I have a stupid fear of elevators... and heights. I'll just take the stairs or climb up the hill and I'll never worry about it again.

15. For your birthday, would you rather receive cash or gifts? Gifts. In leopard print form.

Ok that didn't take long to get back into the meme thing. That was fun! Thanks Bud! And it's kind of your fault I even started this blogging thing again....

Don't Ever Live Your Life for You. Don't do it.

One of the subjects that I've been wanting to rant about is the main one of this week... or one of the main ones... Caitlyn Jenner. Not so much her, but something I heard someone say. The comment went something like this: 

"He's 65 years old, been married, has how many kids, stepfather to other kids, whats the point of doing it now?"

Right. Whats the point? I mean, Bruce Jenner was 65 years old (I think, I'm too lazy to actually go check on the age). Bruce Jenner lived his life for everyone ... and I mean everyone ... his family, his children, his PUBLIC. He lived for everyone... everyone except
that most important person. 

So what if he's 65 now? Should he seriously just "get over it" and live the rest of his life in a lie and unhappy with who he is because he's dealt with it his entire life anyway? I guess maybe he should. 

Who do we live for anyway? Do we pick a few people and only live for them? Do we live for our parents? Our spouse? Our children? Our best friend? Who do you live for? 

Who should Bruce Jenner have lived for? I think he did a fine job living for everyone. 

Now it's Caitlyn's turn. Live your life.

I sometimes wonder if people are all pissed off because she is a damn hot woman... especially for her age! 


So I remembered the other day that I had this blog. Wow, it's been awhile. Sort of fun reading back and seeing how much things have changed in these last few years.
Thinking this blog is going to take a turn... not into the "memes" anymore, do they even exist anymore? The word "meme" has taken a new definition from what I've seen. There are many rants that I love to go off on... random stuff. Lord knows I'm random. My Facebook friends don't seem to like all my ranting... either that or they do, but are afraid to say so because someone might that they like it - or have the same opinion as me - or don't want to get into a fight with me. Fighting over opinions is stupid, but people still like to do it.

So there you have it... I may open this up again to my usual ramblings about nothing. So if you are still out there, wondering where I've been and missing me... I'm back.

Thursday Thunks: I am who I am because of them

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of the shark that nomnom'd on Osama and the number eight

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!
And please remember not to take these questions literally. I got a message last week questioning the questions. This is meant to be a fun, think about it meme... there is not supposed to be serious answers! Have fun with it for pete's sake! Whoever Pete is....

1. Name 5 famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
Mel Gibson, of course.

Michael Landon because without him there would be no Little House on the Prairie
John Schneider because without him there would be no Dukes of Hazzard. Ok, there probably would be, but I can give him credit. He was the only blonde I ever loved. A huge part of my childhood was spent curled up on my daddy's lap on Friday nights watching that show and it was just to see that blonde boy slide across that hood.
Johnny Cash. Another huge part of my growing up.
Ted Corday he's one of the people that created Days of our Lives. Need I say more?

2. So yeah, did you hear Osama is dead? If you could take any letter out of the alphabet and have it never ever used again, which letter would it be?

Q. Because I rarely use it unless I'm talking about ducks.
3. If you were to swallow a guitar pick, would you tell anyone?
Depends on how cute the guitar player was.
4. My tummy hurts. Do you know anyone that eats strange things like toilet paper, chalk or some other off the wall thing that shouldn't be eaten?
Can't say that I have, honestly.
5. Whats your favorite kind of noodle?
Angel hair
6. So yeah, back to this Osama stuff. When someone says "the event that everyone will remember where they were when they heard the news", what event do you think of?
9/11. But there are a few things that happened where I can tell you were I was. Michael Landon's death, Johnny's death, finding out we had our first black president (although he's not really black....), Princess Di's death....
7. Someone last week mentioned that I don't have to have exactly 10 questions, so should I stop here?
I just think people should stop bitching about the questions or the number of them and play along. It only took a few weeks for people to start doing what made me stop doing Thursday Thunks in the first place.
8. Name 5 not-famous people that you wouldn't be you without them.
Taryn, Krissy, Jason and my parents.

Thurnesday Thunks high on helium

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of red gummie bears and the number 1 because ... I don't know, because I'm not that creative today...

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!

1. Does anyone ever wonder: who would go to my funeral if i die?
- I do. I wonder how many people who I hadn't seen when I was alive for many many years will show up.....

2. Sometimes people just make you scrunch up your nose and give that "WTF?" look. Who was the last person you gave that look to?
- The cat. I couldn't understand why he thought the inside of the dogs' ear tasted so good

3. A friend recently told you that she tricked her boyfriend into getting her pregnant. You are also very close friends with him, should you say something or keep it to yourself?
- I'd probably keep my mouth shut.

4. Do you get light headed after sucking the helium from a balloon?
- I honestly have no idea

5. What is the last website you look at each day?
- probably Facebook.

6. Since this is a Thursday meme, but we post it on Wednesday, shouldn't this be called Thurnesday Thunks?
- I still can't figure out why we post it on Wednesday anyway.

7. So some school in Chicago is banning kids from eating bag lunches from home, forcing them to eat school lunches. Hey, I ain't making this crap up, seems the governement doesn't trust parents to feed their kids. Go see for yourself - Back in the day, did you eat school lunches or did you bag it?
- I don't remember ever bringing a lunch to school. I usually ate whatever the school gave and then stole food off my friends plates. I was hungry while I was growing.

8. You can say you don't watch the news until you are blue in the face, but everyone has some news story that caught their attention and they followed stories on. Murders, kidnappings, dirty politics, stupid celebrities..... whatever. Which one caught your attention (even if you didn't want it to)?
- lately it's been the Teen Mom 2 crew. I wanna know whats going on with Leah's one daughter.

9. What condiment is always in your fridge?
- if cheese were a condiment, I'd say that, but it's not so I'll go with mustard. Not that anyone really uses it, but it's always there.

10. You can hug it, pet it and squeeze it and if you really want to you can name it George. What mythical creature would you have as a pet?
- Bigfoot. Just so I could hide him and giggle when people say he doesn't exist.

Sorry it's late this week. No excuses. Just forgot what day it was.

1. How long can you hold your breath? Don't tell me you don't know... try it.
I just did 47 seconds.
2. Have you been watching the

8. What is the scariest place you've ever visited?
the parking lot of a gas station in my brother's van on our trip to Sturgis. It was my brother's girlfriend, her sister & I. A pack of Bandidos were far too interested in the 2 bikes we had in the back of the van.

9. If you were a cat, what already-made flavor of cat food (no chocolate flavors!) would you want to eat?
The trukey gravy always sounded good to me.

10. What were you doing the Friday 2 weeks ago in the afternoon?

Have a great day. Or not. See you next Thursday.

Eating Grapes in the Rain

The TT questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color of April Showers and the number 93888..

*We will now be publishing updates for Thursday Thunks on Facebook via the InsanityCafe fanpage. Please "like" us there to get your TT reminder!

1. If all the world is a stage, where are the audience sitting?
*I would think the audience would be the people sitting up in the space station...

2. Taken from InsanityCafe Forums: If ghosts exist and are around us now, what happens if all life on Earth is destroyed? Would ghosts remain or also be destroyed? If ghosts are energy and energy on the planet is destroyed, wouldn't it destroy ghosts?
I don't think ghosts are energy, I think they are dead people's souls and I don't think souls can die so I guess they would be out floating around in space.

3. How do you know you live in the real world?
Because I have to make an appointment with a tax accountant every year...

4. What the best/worst April Fools Day joke that has ever been played on you? Same question for one that you have played on someone else.
I told all my members over at IC Forums that I was shutting the board down. Took 1/2 the day before someone realized the date....

5. If you could pick the last year of your life, which would you pick and why?
2097. Because I always said I wanted to live to be 125.

6. April showers bring May flowers. Have you ever been stuck in a rainstorm?
Of course!

7. Grapes. Green or red/purple? Seeded or seedless?
Any. I like grapes.

8. Someone knocks at your door asking where your neighbor lives, calling your neighbor by name, do you point them in the right direction?
Depends if they are carrying a butcher knife or not.

9. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can, What can you touch?

10. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Going out to my car to go visit my daddy
