my funny valentine

I probably offended people with my parenting post. It seems like the only thing you can say about parenting is, “They are doing their best and that’s good enough”. Parents are worshiped by American society…and that was sort of my point. But then there is the no time off for maternity leave (when compared to other countries) so worshiped in one way but not by policy in America. I’m watching Melissa Harris Perry now. She’s talking about how people blame single moms for everything. I don’t want to be one of those people.


I think I’m in love with Lena Dunham.

2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards - Arrivals

It’s not the show “Girls”. I was going to compare Girls to the show Friends* but that is a horrible insult. The show isn’t bad, it just isn’t great. I don’t get it. I think if I were a preteen or teenager I would probably love the show. I would want my life to be like theirs. I would be horrified to see my life now. LOL. Anyhow, I have a crush on her. Yeah it has something to do with her looks but I also devoured her recent Rolling Stone article and that sealed it. She’s awesome. #girlcrush I’m exactly midway through season one and I’m going to finish the season despite not loving it. Sometimes average TV is okay.

*The comparison being that I think people are more in love with the characters than the show itself.

One more picture because I know you want it:



Look what I got for Valentines Day!

chaise lounge

Uh, yes I brought it myself. I now have a chaise lounge chair. I love to lounge whenever possible. 😉 I’ve been wanting one for years. If it looks expensive, it wasn’t…at all. I got it on sale. The guy felt so bad for me because I had to have it delivered. He said, “You don’t know anyone with a SUV???!” No. I know no one. It’s just me. Me against the world. So I had to pay to have the chair delivered. Woe is me. I had already entered that into my cost so it wasn’t a big deal to me.
