Random Tuesday Thoughts 5/4

randomtuesday

Randomness is awesome!

I turn 28 on Thursday.  It snuck up on me this year for the first time ever.  My birthday I mean.  I've already been thinking of myself as 28 or 58 depending on how I feel when I wake up in the morning these days.  Mostly 58, but I'm working on that.

Read an article today that just irritated the hell outta me.  Sandra Bullock is adopting a black baby and apparently people seem to think it's for publicity.  Now, I don't Sandy personally, but people here in Austin don't take kindly to anyone badmouthing her because she is genuinely a very nice person and we love her here.  One of the other beefs is that people are like "Black kid? Why not white kid?"  Really?  Who the eff cares?!  Love doesn't care about race folks, and if someone, even a celebrity, wants to adopt a kid, let them.  Too many kiddos without homes in this country and everywhere.  Kudos to you, Sandy, for adopting from here in the states and not caring what color your baby will be.

My husband and I got the movie Where the Wild Things Are through Netflix the other night.  That was the biggest cinematic disappointment I have ever seen.  I'd rather watch Pirates of the Caribbean 3 instead of that tripe.  I realize it was based off a 20 page kid's book, but Sendak managed to cram a plot into those 20 pages and there was a moral to the story.  All this movie had was needless violence, some weird ass dialogue, and a child that needed some serious therapy and medication.  If Max learned anything, it was that he can run away from home and his mom will give him chocolate cake as a reward. Worst. Movie. Ever.  My mom's science fiction atrocities are looking real good right about now!

Now I'm hungry and it's dinner time!

Peace out, y'all!

  1. The last thing poor Sandra needs is people giving her crap over this adoption. It was in the works long before any of this other stuff happened ... and she sure doesn't strike me as someone who does stuff for publicity. Just the opposite in fact.

    And I've heard that "Where the Wild Things Are" is quite a polarizing movie. Knowing the book, I can't imagine how they made it into a movie!

  2. Aw, I was looking forward to watching that movie. When I get time to watch movies again, which should be, oh...2016?
