It's Still Tuesday

And I've got things to say, so I'm linking up with Stacy.

Have you ever been at a point in your life where you just wish God (or your personal higher power) would simply speak to you and tell you what to do?  Of course you have.  Not that I am in that situation right now or anything!  Haha.
Today in my next-door-teacher's classroom, an 11 year old male student told the teacher to "suck my d---."  And we wonder why the world is going to hell in a handbasket!  I don't think I even knew that word when I was 11!  And to speak to an adult like that?  I just... I don't know.

I was listening to a news blurb on the radio today, and the Governor of Kentucky had some wise comments about the state of, not only our schools, but our world.  He talked about culture, and how we glorify death instead of life in our movies, music, and video games.  How our teens' brains are affected by constant screen time.  I really liked what he had to say.  However, I don't think the video game, music, or movie industries are going to be willing to give up their millions to make a world a better place.  Perhaps that's negative thinking, but I prefer to call it realistic.  So much profit is made from denigrating women, violence, death, and destruction.  How do we change it?  Idk.  Just for future reference, banging your head against a wall burns 150 calories an hour!

And now, for some less serious randomness.  I'm recovering quite well from my fall and concussion.  It's been 12 days, and my bruises are almost gone.  I think the vinegar solution I've put on them daily has really helped.  The only issues I'm still having are a medium-sized knot on my chin and my foot.  My foot isn't swollen or bruised any more, but it sure hurts.  I guess I shouldn't feel bad about falling because, did you know, 50% of all orangutans have fractured bones from falling out of trees so often?

And on a similar note, did you know that 3% of the ice in Antarctic glaciers is made up of penguin urine?  Gross!!!!

Have a great week! Subscribe in a reader


  1. Interesting fact about the glaciers!! Eek, glad you're recovering from the fall! It's horrifying what comes out of some kids' mouths these days.

  2. You poor thing! I hope you mend 100% from your fall!

    And my jaw hit the floor when I read about that 11 year old student - it's crazy how much kids that age act and 'know' compared to when we were that age...all this easy access online has them growing up way too fast. And times have changed with it being necessary to have both parents working in order to make ends meet - the cost of living has gone up way too much, but the income levels haven't matched the sharp increase.

    And ewwwwwwww! I didn't know that about the glaciers! But it totally makes sense!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
