Lk's Birthday

Lk turns 5 on Saturday. I can't believe my baby is 5. I can't believe it has been 5 years since that adventure in my mom's office :) My mom is the lifesaver of the year for 2003, according to the Ventura County Red Cross, dontcha know?

In honor of Lk actually reaching the 5 year mark, here is her birthday wish list, verbatim.

Music thingy like a radio
A clean house that is this big and touches the ground. (playhouse)
A long fake pink rattlesnake or a rainbow one.
5 my little ponies with a house
a little stroller for my babies
my own little tv that has channels in it.. then I could watch tv whenever I want, but not when I am going to bed. I won't ask that.
I bet I want something else too, 8 thingys.
fake candy for my ponies
2 little dogs
a pony that's a baby one
a fly pony
a pony that has a bicycle that has a controller and a helmet so it could be safe.

Future Career Opportunities

Ad is truly a boy after my own heart. Yesterday, we were discussing his future career choices. He told me he would like to make posters, like lost dog posters, and hang them up all over the world telling people not to waste our trees. He asked me how much paper makers get paid. He said he would like to travel the world telling people about conservation. AWWWW! He then decided that since artisan paper makers don't make a living wage, he will be a zoologist and feed and train animals, and occasionally brush their teeth. He demonstrated how to keep a lion from biting you (stuff your hand in their mouth and hook their cheeks, learned from a nature documentary). I guess I now need to contact the zoo so he can learn about what is necessary to become a zoologist.

Today, Lk decided that when she grows up she will be a gorilla and scare people. So Ad helped her practice her gorilla growl.

Hospital funnies

Cuz everything about hospitals are funny right??

So today I went to get counseled about my lack of vaccination love. We get up to the fourth floor... for the first time.. and see that the walls are tiled in hospital horror movie green, and alternating walls are covered in what looks like pink burlap. Yes.. pink. Lk remarks.. Wow, it looks like a jail up here.

When we finished on the pink and horror jail floor we went back downstairs to leave. We passed a mom who was standing with her toddler ON A LEASH. Lk and I both stared like it was a horrific traffic accident. We both rubbernecked all the way to the door. As Lk was passing through the door, she turned around and said to me in the most incredulous voice, That boy was wearing a LEASH! She turned around and passed through the door laughing to herself. I asked her what was so funny, and she said again, That boy was wearing a LEASH!!

leashes on little boys apparently don't fit in with her world order!

Breastmilk.. yummmmy

Breast is best, right? Just how far are YOU willing to go to push the agenda, and to save the cows from a life of servitude?

PETA says we should free the cows, and as an afterthought, give up veal!

PETA loves breastmilk. See their letter to Ben and Jerry below.

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Cofounders

Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.

Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,

On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's.

Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.

Using cow's milk for your ice cream is a hazard to your customer's health. Dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, constipation, obesity, and prostate and ovarian cancer. The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it may play a role in anemia, allergies, and juvenile diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease-America's number one cause of death.

Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Like all mammals, cows only produce milk during and after pregnancy, so to be able to constantly milk them, cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months. After several years of living in filthy conditions and being forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally, their exhausted bodies are turned into hamburgers or ground up for soup.

And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.

The breast is best! Won't you give cows and their babies a break and our health a boost by switching from cow's milk to breast milk in Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Thank you for your consideration.

Now, how about some ice cream??

Don't be a side kick!

I don't eat meat... anyone who reads this blog probably already knows that, because, well, no one reads this blog!
But i just found this sooo funny... in a very wrong sort of way. Have you ever noticed that old couples who have been together forever look alike. And those crazy pet lovers always look like their pets.. poodle owners always have perms, right?

Nothing for you, Suckah!

This NY couple were murdered. That is really sad, not funny at all. What is funny is the draft will they left behind. Unfortunately for them, they did not sign so it is not legally binding, but wowzas, these folks were bitter! The husband decided he wanted to be either buried in a scuba suit at sea, or thrown a stripper beach party. I will bring the midori!!

crazy with a will

I may finish those before summer is over @@. He will wear them year round anyway. Now I just need to get my machines serviced before they die LOL
