Random Tid Bits

  1. The latest movie that we watched was Escape to Witch Mountain. It was made in 1975, a year before I was born. The only one that got into the movie was Mica. He was asking to watch the sequel. I checked, and the library doesn't have it. The kids were cute in the movie, but the plot seemed lame.

    I always look up the characters to see if I've seen them in anything else. The little girl looked familiar. Sure enough she was in Little House and a Prairie. Her sister was on the show, and the boy character that was in Escape to Witch Mountain was also on Little House and a Prairie. Kim Richards (the little girl in the movie) is also the aunt to Paris Hilton.

  3. Dad hates when people get plastic surgery. The character in Escape to Witch Mountain has had a lot of work done. Here are the Richard sisters. They've both gotten nose jobs, botox, and breast implants.

    Do you hate plastic surgery? If I were to get anything done it wouldn't be cosmetic. I'd love to fix my deviated septum. I haven't gotten work done on it because I know people that have had the surgery, and it didn't help them to breathe through their nose at all.  

  4. In some ways changing your looks can be as simple as getting your ears pierced, or dying your hair. Where do you draw the line with how far is too far with plastic surgery? Are we too judging when it comes to it? Many times I look at someone that has gotten a some plastic surgery job, and quickly notice that they went too far. Most of them were pretty with how they looked before.

  5. Have you ever offended someone, and didn't even mean to?

    I have a lot of assignment were students draw things out of a hat, so to speak. Most of the time I let them draw 2 or 3 things, and they get to pick. This week they only got to pick one thing. It's just reworking a newspaper ad. This girl came up to me after class and said, "Can I trade?" I said, "No. Simply because 1/2 the class will want to trade after I let you." She then had tears in her eyes and said, "I just can't do this one. It's too close to something I went through." I said, "Fine, just don't tell anyone please." She didn't tell anyone. It was for a baby store. I imagine there's a story there.

  6. Switching gears because this is supposed to be random: I still don't have health insurance cards. I do however have a member ID number, so I'm much happier. 

  7.  We went to the grocery store a week ago. Mica was waiting in line with me. He was looking at some magazine. I heard him say, "Sex" pretty loud. I urged him to come towards me. After that he said, "Isaak look that person used to be a guy, now he's a girl!" I didn't really say anything. I wish magazines would just let people be. I read that they Photoshopped that makeup on him. If he wants to be a boy great, if he wants to be a girl great. I really don't need to know about it though.

I remember watching Escape to Witch Mountain as a kid; it was cheesy even then, lol.

It's obvious your student has some painful associations there and think you handled it in the only way you could.

Plastic surgery isn't all bad; I had it done when I was 14 and it was lifechanging. Having said that, I'm averse to the notion of having unnecessary surgery myself... not really my business what others do with their own bodies, but I think they could use a sensible friend. Someone who will say "Snap out of it! What on earth are you thinking?"

I loved Escape to Witch Mountain when I was a kid. I loved the remake with the Rock, too!

I am really interested in hearing about Bruce Jenner... I guess because its becoming such a big deal now (he has a show coming out to talk about his "journey" and I am nosy and want to know what the journey was)
I could care less what he does, but I am eager to hear what he has to say... He put up with a whole lot with Kris and all, so it should be interesting

If someone wants to alter their appearance, I'm not one to judge. I wouldn't take drastic measures, but I do color my hair occasionally.

You know, I never watched that movie... But I do watch Kim and Kyle on The Real Housewives

Can't say I've ever watched Escape to Witch Mountain. I'm neither here nor there when it comes to plastic surgery. It's not my body so I don't care. However, I do think some people become a little addicted/obsessed with it. I had deviates septum surgery done a few years ago. It helped me be able to breathe better but it was one of the most painful surgeries I've ever had.
