Priorities People!

I noticed this news blurb today and had to laugh: Girls Scouts Refuse to Sell Thin Mints to Save Orangutans
I mean, don't get me wrong, I too care about orangutans getting burned alive and clubbed to death. That is sad and wrong. But when I think of all the consuming that we do as Americans, and all the injustice that we support without ever even knowing about it, I have to wonder is it really going to do any good to take a stand against Thin Mints? That palm oil isn't the only reason the forrest are being clear cut. Think of the list of things you would have to cut out of your life in order to not cause another life form on this planet any inhumane treatment. I'm sure there are a few people who would be willing to follow that list, no matter how long it is. But who will make the list? Their research just happened to coincide with their cookie sales, but will they now research EVERY food and product that is being made with that palm oil and boycott all of it? And are they also going to boycott every grocery or department store item that endangers baby seals, dolphins, panda bears, and all the other endangered animals in the world? How about the immigration fence that is now endangering the Sonoran Pronghorn? I'm sad about their plight (You may have noticed I blogged about it not long ago). But I realize that my blog about it, or even a protesting letter to congress, will make very little difference in the world. Do we each pick one tiny cause and fight for it? With all the horror in the world, is the orangutan the thing we want to choose? At the cost of the best cookie Girls Scouts of America ever invented? I'll leave you to think about it.

What is a Goth?

Here is the video response I made for Rhett and Link's community building exercize. These are all real people (some of whom I actually know)

Benicio del Toro

It really isn't my usual thing to blog about hot actors. But I'm doing it again. I watched "Things We Lost in the Fire" and Benicio del Toro just swept me off my feet (again). I mean look at that smile. Yeah, I thought so.

My next haircut

I always have a hard time finding a short haircut for my wavy hair that doesn't look messy and also isn't hard to fix. I think I have found it. Now, I just need to get a moment to go to the salon, the money to pay for it, and the approval of my husband. Actually, he already said he likes it and thinks it will look good. He just has to give me the okay to spend money on my hair - not a priority in a recession. Maybe I should just have him cut it?
So, That's me with the haircut...LOL! Sort of!

Rhett witnessed live puppy birth, and more....

I finally got to see the RhettandLinkast Live. It was an interesting show. The main topics were:

Puppy placenta

and annoying cell phone shouters

Yes, it was interesting. I don't know what else to say.

You'll have to check it out next time.

John Cusack

I watched Martian Child last night. I wonder if at some point John Cusack will cease to be as amazingly attractive to me as he was in the old days. Or if, since I am aging at the same rate he is, he will always be exactly the kind of sexy man I am drawn to, nomatter how old he gets (we get). I will always see him like this:

Watson Woods

Pictures of our recent day in Watson Woods Riparian Habitat. It is our new favorite place. It is only getting prettier by the day....
