Random Tid Bits

  1. I ran across a website that has the title: The Cutest Child Stars That Turned Ugly. My first thought was: Who determines what ugly is and what cute is? There may be one person out there that looks wise isn't very cute, but attitude wise is amazing. All the sudden what some would determine as ugly changes.

    Once I actually looked at the site - most of the stars on it were not ugly at all! Their looks and personality are beautiful!

    Here are a few examples:

    How does one define beauty?
    What would make someone think these people are ugly? I feel like articles like this are what's wrong with this society.

  2. I had to stay at work Tuesday night. Every year administration schedules a Program Advisory Meeting the week of Halloween. Another staff member has a birthday the day they scheduled it this year. Blah! Daylight Savings Time used to hit the week as well. It's not very well attended. I wish they'd move it to late August, or late September. I've of course made the recommendation. They of course didn't change it. I heard, Well it's only once a year.

    Daddy is doing a class called Artist Inc. He signed up for it. It's free, but you have to apply to get in. They have homework, and you just don't miss it. I called 3 people before I got a babysitter. The good thing: I get comp time for being here.

  3. My sister Facebook messaged me earlier this week to tell me that my brother-in-law's best friend's daughter died. She was 9. The same age as Mica and my nephew Evan. I just couldn't imagine loosing Mica. :( They tried calling him, but he said he just couldn't breathe, let alone talk. All they know is that his otherwise healthy child had a seizure. How scary!

  4. I'm usually pretty particular on assignment details. If I'm not students are all over the place. Last Friday I had an exercise - not an assignment. I passed out styles of music, and dance. They had to use the lecture hour to create the style only using line. I had examples, we talked about it first. Hard rock with line would be hard, grunge would be scratchy, ballet would be soft and loopy, so on a son forth. We even talked about styles of line: Solid line, thick and thin line, two shapes that meet to form a visual line, and more. Not having concrete rules really messes with them. I had 5 or more students at my desk multiple times asking, "Is this ok?" and "Is this what you want?" I told them I just want it to look good, but it's your interpretation. They didn't like that answer.

  5. The boys both won 2 liters - 1 each of soda at their fall festival a few weeks ago. We have a little bit here, and a little bit there. It's a treat because we never have soda. It goes flat before we can get through it. Do you drink soda? We're water drinkers. With smoothies I only have fruit in it to sweeten it up. With coffee I drink it black.

That IS really sad. Neither of those two people are "ugly" at all - and isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?

What a terrible website. How dare they ascribe their idea of "beauty" on us like that. So sad.

I would be pissed if I were any of those celebrities... I mean, I know people judge.. but hello... talk about bullying.. that is sad....

Kinda weird about winning soda... most parents dont let their kids have any... so odd to have it as a prize. we are weaning off it.. and broxton gets sprite every now and then.

My worst fear, as I am sure is every parents, is losing a child. I get nearly breathless at the thought of them moving away. I don't think I could handle it if one passed away. Especially at such a young age.

And that is a horrible website, calling people ugly like that. Do they show pictures of themselves? Probably not, because they are probably uglier than the people they are trashing!

I'm so sorry to hear about the little boy. I cannot imagine. :(

I drink soda sometimes. I like fizzy water better though. It's weird when the prizes for kids are son's school does that, and I always think it's an odd prize.

mail4rosey said...

oh, and I think the two examples of stars are ridiculous. Both of those people are very nice looking!

I was wondering how comfortable those button eyes were. Could you see well out of them?
