Monday, Monday

Getting ready for work, just sitting here thinking… I’m grateful for a decent night’s sleep, grateful for coffee, and grateful that my new books will be in today.  

See, I’m not hard to please at all:)


Ahh life…

We’re going to have pizza tonight!!! Which is good, not only because I’m hungry but because I’ve been in kind of a blue funk today.  Guess it’s because of the weather, but it could be because humanity as a whole is getting crazier than chicken scratching in a barnyard.

I mean, shooting up a town because of some random reason?  People getting pissed because you don’t support their candidate just because of their gender or religious beliefs?  It’s nuts.

Abstinence Only Sex Ed!

So the POTUS eliminated funding for abstinence only sex ed.  I’m waiting for the fundies to awaken from their fainting spells by aid of smelling salts and lace hankies waved in their faces to decry this latest move as proof Satan is alive and well on Planet Earth.

Bull.  Yeah Satan may be on Earth (just look at my ex) but the proof is certainly not from this.  Maybe from the price of Sonic cheeseburgers but not this.

Abstinence only programs do not work.  Just look at Bristol Palin.  Two kids, no ring, and she still advocates for these programs?  How’s that working out for you sweetheart? 

These programs are biased towards making the girls feel like the burden of chastity is all on them.  Boys rarely are encouraged to be chaste on the same level as girls.  Yes women should treat themselves as precious gifts, but comparing a non virgin to a dirty torn tie while merely telling boys not to make mistakes gives a fear factor to sex for the girls like no one has ever seen.

(And before I get gutted, let me say that yes I have seen purity programs in my youth, although not to the extreme)

If I had a child, I’d want them to know the medical and psychological facts behind sex.  Going bare bones medical with examples- most of the time a kid picturing their parents making the beast with two backs is enough to scare them into a convent.

Tell them about the good, the bad and the ugly.  Factual information is the best way.

What exactly am I doing?

Career wise I know.  I’m doing something I love, which I was not able to say for many years.

Life wise, well, I’m getting the hang of that.

Doing a remake of my personal style and giving myself a boost of self esteem which I’ve been sorely lacking.

I’m finding out the Kardashian/Jenner clan isn’t all that bad.  Most of the time.  Girlfriends have some killer style anyway.  I’m seriously envying Kylie Jenner’s lipliner skill.  And I’m finding out that Kim ain’t the dummy she might appear to be to some.  (Keep your chin up girl).

I’m taking a life tip too from Big Ang (may she rest in peace)… to live life large.  We only get one so might as well make it count right?

Peace out!
