1 Timothy 6:10a says, "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil."
The shortest verse in the Bible is "Jesus wept." found in John 11:35.

I gave my kids their nicknames because I want the freedom to write without family and friends knowing who is talking about them, but it's funny how they seem to fit.
Lady Day is a play on her name, but she goes around the house singing all. the. dang. time.
Bubba is not so much fitting, but what Lady Day used to call him when he was first born. Her and her friend both called their brothers Bubba.
A.J. are his initials.
Bear is a play on his name as mispronounced by A.J., but it fits because he's getting big. He looks like a big ol' bear.
The Poet is named because she is named after a poet and an actress whose name can be shortened to another poets name.

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them." ~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

I am having a stress-free Thanksgiving. I'm having dinner delivered, I'm not having any family over and we are even eating off of paper plates so I don't have to clean up afterwards.

I wish you all a happy, stress-free holiday. Forget about diets and eat until you feel like you're going to bust. That's why they invented elastic.
Let the kids run around and go crazy. Don't force the boys to make their beds and let the girls wear their ballarina slippers with a tierra.
Clean the night before if you must, then don't do it again until the day after no matter how many guests you have over. Anyone who says anything about the mess they helped make are going to find something to talk about anyway, so don't worry about them.
Say a little prayer for those who can't be with family.
Laugh at Uncle Fred's corny jokes.
And dance with a baby. Let it's laughter be your music.

More randomness:

Didn't Tyler Perry see Janet Jackson "act" under John Singleton's direction? And who can forget her stint in Fame? I'd cut off the tip of my right pinky for those abs, but let's be real, the girl can. not. act. I love me some Tyler Perry, but I hesitate seeing his movie just because I don't want to endure watching Ms Jackson and her bad-acting behind.

What the "L"?!? You want how much for a gallon of gas? I'll keep catching the bus, thankyouverymuch. These people must be out of their God forsaken minds.

I'm down with breastfeeding, but please don't say anything about my choice to supplement with formula while I am at work. Some of us don't want to spend our lunch hour pumping. Heck, some of us don't pump at all. My mantra is: "I have 5 kids, a cat, an addicted ex-husband and a job with plenty of bills to pay, the kid's lucky___________________"
So I have 5 kids, a cat, an addicted ex-husband and a job with plenty of bills to pay, the kid's lucky I don't sit her butt at the table and make her eat Manwich with the rest of them, cause I don't have time to fix sloppy joe from scratch anymore.

Am I the only one still puzzled by Gwynth naming her kid Apple?

Upon hearing that I go to church every Sunday, why do people assume that it's okay to start showing how bigoted they are? My niece is gay, and I'm okay with that. In fact, I would be kind offended if I don't get invited to her wedding one day. I would never vote for anyone with the last name of Bush. I think we should get out of Iraq quick, fast and in a hurry. It would be a sad day when abortion is outlawed. No, I can't pull Bible verses out of my arse, but I do know some petty trivia like the shortest verse in the Bible and the fact that "Money is the root of all evil" is a misquote. I'm trying to stop because my 3 year old has starting repeating me, but normally I curse like a sailor. I may go to church on the regular, that doesn't necessarily mean that I'm a good little Christian.

Speaking of people assuming things, why do people assume I'm spoiled because I'm the baby of the family. That couldn't be farther from the truth in my childhood home.

Besides the fact that she chose to share, who really cares if Brittney goes commando or not? Y'all act like ain't none of y'all ever "let it air out" once or twice.

Speaking of Britt, it's obvious she doesn't want custody of her kids, why don't the judge go ahead and give her what she wants. Get her off my TV for awhile at least.

I ask this all the time, but why do grocery stores raise their prices on the 1st and the 15th when the poorest people are doing the majority of their shopping?

Is anyone else happy they're bringing Hiro back to the present? And what's the deal with Adam?

Why is my 10 year old developing boobs and growing hair in places I don't want to think about. What's next? Her period? Oh jeez, I need to lay down.

Most importantly, why did I forget nursing pads this morning? So now I have to stuff my bra so that I won't be leaking all over the place.
I have a stomach of steel. You could puke in my face and as long as it didn't splatter on my plate, you can bet that I will keep on eating. As I was riding the bus this morning a "gentleman" sat down next to me and started to pick at the dead skin on his hand. Whatever. Why did the MF put it in his mouth and start chewing like it was a Big Mac? Needless to say, I went straight to my desk and skipped breakfast this morning.

Will the strike end before The Office and Heroes go into re-runs? That's all I wanna know. Give the people their fair share so the rest of us can have our weekly fixes. Please?

I'm still undecided whom I will be voting for, but I will smile every time I think of Barack now.

Locally I am most happy that Mr Coleman is still my mayor.
