I'm Just Saying...

There are a lot of things that trouble me.  Things I don't think people take the time to think about and realize are issues.  Some of these things I just try to let go, but others I cannot.

Do you see what I'm saying?
The whole Asia/Europe?Africa
area is just a big cluster-f#$k
of countries/continents.

The continents.  They don't make any sense.  I am not a geography expert or anything, but when I took the time to really look at the map I see why Americans don't know anything about geography.  It's because nobody who's teaching geography knows what they're talking about.  All I remember learning is that the world is made up of 7 continents.  I even still have them memorized.  I also learned that a continent is big separate land mass.  As fate would have it, not exactly true.  And, apparently, science-y people don't even talk about continents anymore.  For accuracy purposes, the refer to different regions of the world.


People in Europe teach that there are only 6 continents; that North and South America are really one land mass. Is that so Europe?  Aren't you completely attached to Asia?  And, PS, ever hear of the Panama Canal?  North and South ARE actually two separate land masses now.  Further, I am not 100% convinced that Africa isn't also attached in a few places to Europe and Asia.


Who even came up with what was a continent and what wasn't?  Australia is a continent but Greenland isn't?  They seem to be pretty close in size and are both big separate land masses.  All of this is troubling to me because it's like somebody did a sloppy job mapping out and naming crap and we're all just sticking with it for no particular reason.  Probably the same reason we never were able to get on board with using the metric system.


I made a little note to mention something about sandwiches.  Obviously, I didn't write enough down, because I can't remember at all what my sandwich issue was, but I am sure it was something pressing and needing of our attention.  Trust me, you will be the first ones to know when I think of it.  Honestly though, I really can't imagine what about sandwiches I could have found troubling.


"creepy" and "ew" are
the only two things
I can say here.
I guess we'll move on then.  Disgusting marriage between the 51-year-old actor and the 16-year-old aspiring country singer.  I wrote about a week or so ago.  There's an update.  Her parents still think it's super.  They say she's always looked very mature and she says she's an old soul.  Also, she says that God has blessed her with the "beautiful gift" that is her husband because she's very Christian and "held on" to her virginity.  "Held on?!?!?"  She's 16!!  Held onto it since when?  Oh yeah and Doug Hutchison, the awesome groom, thinks they are a great couple because she is 16 going on 36 and he is 51 going on 21.  Is it just me, or does that not make it seem any better?  Also, he shrugs of the critics saying "I've been called worse than a pedophile in my life."  Really?  There's not a whole lot of room for worse with pedophile as your jumping off point.


Unless there is
$38,900 inside the bag
it's not worth 39k.
Why are people paying top dollar for Mary-Kate and Ashley clothes?  You used to be able to buy their designs at Walmart.  Now, all of a sudden they are the heads of The Row, an upscale design house.  Has no one seen how they dress themselves?  Why would you spend a ton of money to buy what they design for other people?  But, I guess if you want to be "cutting edge",  go right ahead.  You can currently spend $39,000. on their black faux croc backpack handbag.  Amanda Brooks, Barneys' Fashion Director says that as far as 39k bags go, this is really a good choice because you would totally get a lot of use out of it.  (I don't believe it's real crocodile, but I like to hope it's at least real leather, but  you never know).  I'll tell you what, I have a bargain offer for you.  For only 20k, I will carry your stuff for you and follow you around.  Let me know if you're interested.


I would like to discuss the headband situation in women's soccer.  Not sweatbands, that while ugly are useful, I mean the thin elastic headbands most girls wear to hold back hair that might fall out of their pony tails.  I was watching United States play Japan and was extremely troubled by the wealth of these headbands over the women's hair.  Mostly women with short hair, using the headbands to hold the front of their sweaty hair against their face and forehead.  I don't understand at all.  It looked stupid and what is the point of it??


Look closely, you can see
the top of SB's head
and one of her sneaks.

For those of you who have been wondering about my camp web site search for pictures of my daughter, you will be glad to know that I have spotted her playing basketball.  I think she looks extremely happy, don't you?


Currently, there is nothing else worrying me or bothering me.  Well, except now I still can't remember what bothered me about sandwiches, so that's kind of weighing on me.  The End.

  3. I knew I'd see the whole continent thing here!

    If I had $20K, I'd let you follow me around with my stuff. Unfortunately, the money has been earmarked for more important things. (Wink, wink)
    Love,
    Madre

  4. I was actually expecting to see headbands in the pic and got confused. THEN I read the caption.

    So yay for seeing a life sign of SB again. ;)

  5. I can't think of anything worse than being called a pedophile. And the fact that he's shrugging that off makes him even creepier.
    Ew ew ew.
    You know, I have to point to Hugh Hefner for deluding people into thinking that there is anything remotely "normal" about this kind of relationshio.
