No Oompa-Loompas

My Sister would probably roll over in her grave if she knew.  On the other hand, she wouldn’t want me to get skin cancer either.

She and I made tanning a full time past-time and lived by the credo:  Tans are something you EARN by working and playing in the sun.  They aren’t procured on a tanning bed, in a spray booth mist or out of a bottle and they certainly aren’t supposed to be any shade of orange.

When I couldn’t find any Ban de Soleil products in ANY store again this year (and may I just say:  WHAT IS UP WITH THAT Brick-n-Mortar Retailers!?  I’ve sworn by only this brand for all of my life and am more than a little chagrined I can only find it online…  *makes mad bunny faces, grumbles loudly, thumps back foot wildly*) so I decided it was sign from above to stay out of the sun, so I gave one of those 99 cent trail size tubes of “Jergen’s Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer” a try for fun.

Don’t tell anyone, but I really liked it, went back and bought more.

I love Eucerin.
I said that to someone once and he did quite a double take. It sounds like you are saying “I love you Sir… In. 

I just got some new Eucerin, a variety that I had not tried before. It looks like buttercream icing, feels like buttercream icing, smells like buttercream icing. But, I bet it is NOT delicious like buttercream icing. I still highly recommend slathering yourself in a jar.

I saw the BEST hour of television the other night (PBS of course!).  It was beautiful and awe-inspiring, and I feel like if you watch it I will have given you a gift.

Alone in the Wilderness” is the story of Dick Proenneke, a naturalist who went into the Alaskan wilderness in the 1960s, built himself a cabin by hand and lived alone in the wild for 35 years.

I promise that if you watch it, it will be one of the most enjoyable hours you will ever spend.

Below is part one of six, parts two through six are available at Youtube.

Strong Women by The Hydropods

My sister is strong of heart and strong of mind, she stands like my mother once stood, proud and on the world.  The same world I stand upon, not as proud of myself as I am of them.

I speak warmly of women who endure through tenacity and sensibility, creativity and desire, power and awareness, women who persevere and stand proud and on the world.

And I avoid women who whine and the ones who point fingers and complain, the ones who chide and blame others for their failures, sexuality or world-view.

I prefer strong women. Ones who leap barriers like real women, not like men, or gazelles, or bats, but with all of the grace and strength of true women.

And I like intelligent women, women who know how to hold their own, toe to toe against any man or any thing that stands on this world, women with original thought and insight, because that’s how I was raised.

I prefer strong women, not cat fighting women, breast pounding body builders or cookie cutter fashion show runway whores or women who use men as models.

Women who know history, who know men are more than a rampaging army of Cyclops cocks, women who know children are more than leverage, who know the world on which they stand and draw power from it.

Women who are leaders, women who can process and comprehend, women who are great thinkers, and women that don’t like me saying that are probably not that.

I like women who can look you in the eye, no pretense, no false flattery, no apologies, no thanks.

I’ve been challenged by many, topped by a few, slapped in the face by some and shot to hell by a couple in particular, but I still like strong women no matter what you think.

I don’t happen to like weak whiny women, just as I despise weak whiny men.  I can’t pretend their worth my time, if you’re a weak woman blame me now and get it over with.  Keep crawling.

But if you’re a woman who possesses greatness, you have nothing to worry about –  You wouldn’t let someone like me get in your way anyway.

And when I say something good about a woman and when I say something bad about a woman take a good look at the woman of which I speak and judge us fairly as you stand or kneel on this earth.

I loved her in MOSQUITO COAST, and of course in THE GOONIES, and I especially liked her performance in the movie SHY PEOPLE.  I am going to tell you about a new show I saw last night, but you need to see this trailer first…

OK.  Last night I saw a new show called RAISING HOPE, and it was so funny and raunchy, yet sensitive.  I admit I had a few tears well up when she (Plimpton) started singing.  And then I started laughing so hard I cried when Chloris Leachman ran out of the house topless.

I am going to call it – this show is going to be a WINNER!
