Thursday's Thoughts

{1} Royal Baby News:  the world has been buzzing about Kate's alleged slip of the tongue this week when she received a teddy bear and said "I'll give it  to my D....".  Of course everyone is assuming she was about to say "daughter" when she caught herself. 

I hope that is the case.  I want Wills & Kate to have a girl.  I want this first born girl to be the future Queen without having to let later born boys supersede her.  BUT... I am just not letting myself go there.  I'm not getting my hopes up.  I'm assuming that she was about to say "I'll give it to my Dog" when she thought better of it.  She may have realized people wouldn't like her re-gifting to her dog.

{2} The Bible:  Did y'all watch part one of "The Bible"?  I thought it was pretty good.  Here are my thoughts:

~I greatly enjoyed the burning bush that Moses saw.  It reminded me of these Chihuly pieces...


~The ancient egyptians look pretty Goth with all their eye make-up.

~How long do you think it took Isaac to get over the fact that his Dad was about to sacrifice him?  God telling him to do it or not, I would think that would take a day or fifty to get over. 

~ The second plague (frogs) reigning down on the Egyptians would have done me in.  I would have not lived to see any additional plagues.  Seeing the 5 seconds of it on screen almost did me in!

~The Passover scene was kind of creepy.  I mean, I guess there is no way to depict 1st born sons being snuffed out that isn't creepy, but still. 

{3} Taylor Swift:  I'm not really a TaySwift fan.  Her music isn't really my cup of tea, but I just cannot get over her dating life.  She had a thing for a while where she dated older guys (John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal), now she is on the kick where she is dating young 18 year old boys (even ones still in high school- Connor Kennedy).  Everyone knows that she writes songs about her exes after she breaks up with them.  Which is fine.  More power to you sister.  But now she is all hot and bothered that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made fun of her at the Golden Globes?  I mean, if you are going to put it out there time and time again, don't be shocked and scandalized when people comment or even poke fun at you. 

{4} Filibuster:  I'm all sorts of excited that on Wednesday, Washington saw a full blown Mr. Smith goes to Washington-West Wing Stackhouse filibuster!  A filibuster is of course the act of talking a bill to death.  You have the floor as long as you hold the floor.  The Senate changed the rules where today, all you have to do is say "I'm filibustering" and that's it.  But Rand Paul, bless his heart, decided to put up a good old-fashioned talk until you drop filibuster!  Love It!  I want the Senate rules amended.

Thanks for reading my Thursday's Thoughts.  Yes, these are the things that I sit around and think about!
