Man I am such a slacker!
Sorry I just couldn't think of anything snazzy to write about lately. Well, except for the utter prehistoric move South Dakota recently made against female reproductive rights. What the fuck is going on here? Why are we now going backwards? Do I have to go march bra-less in DC somewhere to resurrect the women's feminist movement of the 60's? How on earth did South Dakota get away with this? I mean they are tucked way up there in the frozen tundra section of our country away from societies that actually contribute to the betterment of mankind.
Nah, I don't want to get into the pro-choice conversation. I considered writing about Kristin Armstrong's article in Glamour about the reality of marriage. She hits the nail on the head baby! We throw all these parties for newly-engaged girls, usher them up the aisle and promptly turn the other cheek to the REALITIES of marriage when most of us know how awful it can get. I realize that advice on how to stay married, not loose yourself in marriage and grow with your partner are not words a sweet wedding-crazed bride-to-be wants to hear, however it's time we plucked our heads out of the sand and stopped the commercialization of "love". I mean we are not stooooopid, but we refuse to believe our handsome husband-to-be could possible be someone we would want to kill, especially over something dumb like snoring? Why not take a different approach to lifetime commitment? Instead of feeling like the plush toy "selected" by the metal claw and bedazzled (branded?) with a giant diamond ring why don't we give the man an obstacle course and some logic puzzles?
Nah, I need a new subject. I always bash marriage even though I really want to live happily ever after. How am I going to get away from my jaded stance of marriage and head towards my ideal of warm family meals, wally-wagon type family vacations and belly-laughing moments with more children? Any suggestions will be considered.
Lastly, there is a new show. "The New Adventures of Old Christine" staring Julia Louise Dreyfus as a single mom! It's fantastic! I just happened to catch the premiere of this new show last night. It's fantastic! Bravo! I will now watch this show every Monday night and feel fabulous that I too am a single mom.
