Body World

I highly recommend attending this incredible exhibit at the Leonardo/Old Salt Lake Library. Not only is it interesting and informative, but I found it to be VERY educational.
I took Human Biology in college 3 times. The first time I got a C, the second a D, and the third a B. If I would have just seen this exhibit the first time, I would have gotten an A. Although there are boobs and penis' if you have children 5 and above, I think they would also find this very interesting and educational.
My only suggestion for future exhibits would be to add more information about obesity. All of the bodies on display were perfect. There didn't seem to be much room for any imperfections. However, I think more information and displays about obesity could encourage others to live a healthy life style. I have heard many doctors say that it is "never too late" to begin living a health life style with exercise and good diet.
The brain and heart sections were very interesting and I found myself learning new things.

I was tagged....

I was tagged by my neice that can't type.

7 random and/or weird facts about me:

1. I have a cup of coffee once a day. (or one Dr.Pepper)

2. I LOVE halloween. I would rather have Halloween than Christmas.

3. I wash my face twice when I shower.

4. I have 4 jobs and I love them all!

5. I like to eat raw cookie dough.

6. I have never cleaned my car (gross, I know)

7. I cheated on my times tables tests in 3rd grade.... I still don't know them....

I tag Tyson (cause he will do it)

It has been suggested...

It has been suggested that I have two blogs. It has also been suggested that I not post things that are going to offend people. Here is my response.....

Don't read my blog. If you are unable to accept opinions outside your own scope of life, then this is not the blog for you. If you are unable to accept that not all people are like you, and that other people swear and can be crude and offensive, don't read my blog.

My friends and family that truly know and appreciate who I am will read my blog and know when to say something and when not to say something.

If you don't like something that I write on my blog, feel free to say something, but don't expect me to change my own ways or to not express MY own feelings on MY own blog.

This is NOT a family blog. Tyson and I do not have a "family" blog. When our child is old enough to type, he can have his own blog. Tyson and I have two seperate blogs, he has his own and I have my own. On my blog I express my opinions, talk about what is going on in my life, and vent my own frustrations or feelings.

The only person that I invited to view my blog was my husband, Tyson. The only person that will love and appreciate all of me and my opinions, even if we differ on some of them.

If you are truly interested in my life and want to know information about my child then you can do what families do, pick up the phone, ask us over for dinner.

Don't email me or make comments on my blog, thinking that is communication. It's not. It took me a long time to learn that true communication is between two people, face to face. Technology has only hindered, not helped, this process of communication. I have witnessed this several times within my own family, as well as Tyson's. Emailing, texting, or blogging, is NOT a way to communicate with someone. It is pretty much just stating an opinion. If you only want to tell someone how you feel then do one of the ways listed above. However, communication should be a two way street. If you want to have a discussion with someone, do it in person. TALKING to each other is a great way to communicate with someone. And it is possible to have a discussion with someone even if your views differ, as long as there are two open minds involved, then it is possible.

For those of you that will continue to read my blog, thanks and welcome.

To those of you that will choose to not read my blog, have a nice life.

Wow... that felt good... oh wait...


Not that I voted for Obama (because I didn't) but I sure as hell did NOT vote for McCain either!


Holy shit.... wow.... whew....hold on.....


Seriously, if I had balls, I would tell at least 10 specific people to suck them.....

Sometimes I don't want to be right. But this time.... I'm swimming in it!!!

However, he still has 2 months and 4 years to be assassinated, so we'll see how the McCain lovin' red-neck nazi's deal with that!

Either way....


PS - Switzerland or maybe Canada are still possibilities in our future. Only because the democratic ticket isn't much better than the republican. The US has a long way to go before it is back to its original roots and beliefs. Something that they will probably never get back to. And socialized medicine isn't a bad idea if it is played out correctly. And stealing from the rich to give to the poor (redistribution of wealth) is also a bunch of bullshit.

Thanks to Hilary for this wonderful post

Dear Red States

If you manage to steal this election too we've decided we're leaving.
We intend to form our own country, and we're taking the other Blue States with us. That includes California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington,Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country of New California.
To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood. We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole' Miss. We get 85% of America's venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama. We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.
Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition's, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.
Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we're going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they're apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don't care if you don't show pictures of their children's caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and hope that the WMDs do turn up, but we're not willing to spend our resources in Bush's Quagmire.
With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country's fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce,92% of the nation's fresh fruit, 95% of America's quality wines, 90%of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.
With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs),92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia. We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.
38% of those in the Red states believe the earth is only 6,000 years old and Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale; 62% believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws; 44% say that evolution is only a theory; 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11, and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals than us lefties.
Finally, we're taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico.
Peace out,
--the Blue States
