disney...setting females back a hundred years one iditic portrayal at a time

I know the average female lead in a Disney movie has an intelligence equaling that of a department store mannequin, but they've outdone themselves with Maleficent.

Princess Aurora meets Maleficent in the woods and says, "I know who you are. You're my Fairy Godmother."

*blink blink*

Really, honey? What it gave it away? The black dress? The black wings? Or the black horns SPROUTING OUT OF HER HEAD?!

holy hell

Jill Faren Phelps fired Michael Muhney from the Young and the Restless. I've watched that show for what seems (and FEELS) like forever and Phelps has single-handedly managed to turn me off of it. I'll watch until Michael's stint is over than the JFP can kiss my rosey red ass.

She keeps that fossil Eric Braeden, who can't act worth shit anymore. He's been phoning his scenes in since the 90's and yet she shitcans the one person on the show who brings it each and every time.

Although, on the upside, getting fired is probably the best thing that could happen to Michael because he's way too talented to be wasting his time on JFP's piece o'crap.

weekend update

I had a GREAT weekend. I stayed inside Fri evening and all day Sat as Mother Nature saw fit to blanket us with about six inches. (And I don't mean the good kind;)

Today I took a good hour walk and got the stink blowed off, as Grandma used to say, and it felt refreshing to be outside. I'm guessing this was due to the snow blowing in my face.

After supper, Mr. G and I took Holly out for a stroll--more like a "walk two feet, sit, walk two feet, sit"--as Grandma H isn't exactly the liveliest at 10 years old. Mr. G said, "Maybe she's in pain and isn't feeling well." So I said, "Okay, let's go back to the car," and the bum got right up and didn't miss a step until we got to the car!

I can feel the arthritis in Holly's hips, though,  every time I help her up the stairs. I remember when we first got her. She'd race up and down the stairs, and I'd yell, "Holly! Stop skipping steps! You're gonna break a leg!" She'd jump to the 1st floor landing from about the third or fourth step up. Now it's so sad to see her needing help with every step. She was all cuddled up in bed with me this morning and I watched the snow falling outside and wondered how many more mornings like that we'd have together. Guess I gotta appreciate what I have while I have it:)

i LOVE the internet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sure ppl will argue that you can find intructions on how to kill ppl and make bombs, BUT you can also find the instructions for putting together a 6.5 Douglar Fir color coded tree from WalMart that ya bought eight years ago and left to rot in the attic......thank you ppl of the internet!!!!

That's right, folks, for the first time in YEARS Goddess is slapping up a Christmas tree that's bigger than Charlie Brown's tree. And why, you ask? Because I have many things to be grateful for: my family, my job, my health...

Wait a minute. If I'm grateful I should be stuffing my face with mashed potatoes, gravy and turkey not slapping up a damn tree that the cat is already eyeballing for destruction!
