1. Katy Perry and her fairy outfit banned from Sesame Street. The Boy is about five years past this show and Arzilla prefers Nick Jr and Disney. Twitter and Facebook were abuzz with this story. Apparently the fear of Katy’s 32Ds falling out of her dress caused an uproar after a clip was seen online. My question: who said Katy Perry was a D? I think I see a card carryiing member of the itty bitty bloop committee. You judge:
2. Bishop Eddie Long…what a jerk! His greed and hypocrisy is yet another nail in the coffin of the black church. As a spiritual leader, did he not see this:
But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.
I myself need to revisit these two:
1 Corinthians 4:5
Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
3. Reverse Intolerance. When I went to an all girls school in 19 ninety something, being labeled gay was the last thing you wanted. We were goofy kids in high school! I remember high school. That was a helluva time. Today, there’s less stigma and more education about one’s sexuality, and there is better communication with the LGBT community, but sometimes it seems that if you dont agree with their cries for civil rights, you are immediately labled a homophobe. I’m not going to scream and holler about how I have gay friends. I do. However, just as they are entitled to their opinions being heard, hear mine. Or anyone who disagrees with you. I don’t immediately label all whites as racist or all men as sexist. Some people form their opinion based on bigotry, some based on experience. Some of us believe what our BIBLES teach us. I say bible because I read and I interpret what I read. My pastor helps guide my spiritual walk, Jesus leads my spirit. This musing stems from the Teen and I watching The Real Housewives of DC. Stacie Turner, the lone black woman, does not agree with gay marriage. She feels that marriage is between Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Naturally, she caught Hell for her opinion. It’s just that, though. Her opinion. She doesn’t treat her homosexual friends any different she just doesn’t agree with marriage between people of the same sex. Honestly, I don’t care. Does it feed my kids? No. Does it help me knit? No. Does it make me run faster? No. What will I do I one of my kids comes home with a same sex partner? Not too much. I’ll mainly be grateful the kids are out of the house.
4. Democratic fundraisers are whack! The Mister and I went to see Brian Lentz and Dan Onorato speak in Paddock Park in Havertown. The homey down to earth gathering was intimate and not as formal as the ones I attend for the Upper Darby GOP. However, how are you going to run out of plates when one of the items you are serving is baked beans?
5. Social Media, TV, net surfing…these eat up a lot of my time! After the consecrationfor the church, I felt bombarded by noise and junk when I returned to business as usual. The first day I actually resented Facebook and Twitter because it felt like a chore to post, reply, keep up with the trends. I missed the peace that comes with being quiet and being with God. Needless to say, I’m bringing this aspect back to my days.
Upper Darby needs to get with the times and offer full day kindergarden. Arzilla and I have been hanging out for the past week because UD offers AM or PM school. Not only does a working parent have to scramble for care to accommodate the rest of the day, but our kids begin with a disadvantage. The kids still have snack and outdoor time – um, when do they learn? And how about the transition to full day first grade? How is this addressed? It isn’t. Apparently there are too many kids in the district to accommodate full day kindergarden. Then explain to me how grades one through twelve are able to have full days?
